HOLY SHIT, YOU GUYS. This thing is back! I’m back! Sloucher.org is back! The previous paragraph is aligned to the right! Only the audience isn’t back. Sheeeee-it. We lost you all to Furious Seven, which is fine and dandy because you can’t ignore the siren call of The Stat.

Ahoy there! We have another one of them fancy lists for your reading pleasure.
