Build a hypertext link to the woman down the street whose son was shot on his way to school.

Nothing in this place is guaranteed to work, not even the hallucinogens. Any path may lead to an abyss; any information may be inconsistent with reality; and any opinion may be falsely attributed, if it is attributed at all. Treat the contents as you would a software product that is guaranteed to be working "real soon now."
