"... I mean, the man just wouldn't listen, I ain't seen nothing like it. I remember this one time Sergeant came in for inspection. Me and the other guys got up real quick like, stood at attention, but this guy... he just sat there on his damn bunk, staring at the wall. Sarg was furious, and just started laying into him, you know? Just screaming at the guy. But he didn't move an inch. Just sat there... looked like he was deep in thought or something. Heck, you'd think he'd lift an arm just to wipe the spit off his face from Sarg's hollerin'. Eventually, Sarg had enough though, and dragged him to his feet. I'll never forget, he got up real close, face to face, you know? And he yelled, 'you retarded, son?!?'. And the cheeky bastard said back, cool as a cucumber, 'yes, sir. Retarded, sir.'"

If you think this tip looks familiar, it's because I modified a line from a popular Bright Eyes song, Road to Joy. An awesome song, and very talented artist.
