These weird space-age sarcophagus' are overlooked as a therapy tool because the sessions are more easily marketed as an ‘experience’ or to ease muscle pains. Sure, it ticks those boxes, too… But it’s not the tank’s main selling point. Done properly, a floatation tank can take you on a psychedelic journey akin to intense meditation or drugs (allegedly).

Admittedly, I’m not as ‘active’ on the app as I was back then, but these robots don’t seem to happen so much anymore. There are still a lot of suspect accounts lurking about, though...
There are over 15,000 nuclear weapons worldwide, and you can't have Donald “I don’t want to rule out anything” Trump, and Vladimir "I like to measure my dick [read: Military prowess]" Putin calling the shots without nudging the Doomsday clock a little closer to midnight.

He posed as a heroin user and used other addicts to make his connections with dealers. He estimates his arrests account for over 1000 years of prison time. He was on the front line of the ‘war’...and he’s not proud of any of it.
After reading about the album, I felt a preemptive sense of defeat but had already committed to this pointless, masochistic cause. Largely, I was adamant that I couldn’t have felt much worse at that point in time and yearned to wallow in much pain as possible, for maximum effect.
