>tfw you will never go on newgrounds and play the newest flash games or watch the newest flash movies by your favorite artists and then go play HL2:DM after replaying HL1 and then go to circuit city to buy a new mouse because yours broke and then go play a surf map on CS(S) and then go play Garrys Mod 9

>tfw you will never be an PhD graduate from MIT who goes to work at black mesa
