Cool. Apparently, they played a little game like 'Sims' but they took all the last names in the country and randomly assigned them first names. Well, this is cool to me since there are only about a dozen people (or less) who have my last name. This means I had a good chance of landing a leading role. So, there I was Thrynn Crazylastname standing in line waiting to board a plane. Not quite sure where I was headed, but it didn't matter. Desitiny had other plans. I wonder if my character lives or dies in their scenario. I bet I live, but I'm probably took serious battle damage. I feel like I should be paid for my role in the game.
