    I held off watching non McElroy content for reasons i don't quite know. Then i gave in and watched the fallout music episode. Before i knew it hours had passed and this group of weird, cute, immensely talented geeks had made me laugh, harder then I'd done in months and cry a bit too. And this video actually made me really start to get my depressed ass back to living again.

    A few hours ago I had an open surgery done. I'm home now and trying to watch this video but it hurts to laugh; I am literally dying from laughter. Which is why eight minutes in, for the first time ever, I'm bookmarking a video and coming back to watch it later. God bless, Brian
