Re: 1214: "Geoguessr"

Registered just to take you up on that: 32391. I guess these forums don't let you post a url right after...

Today, I learned that spontaneous fevers really suck.

I just laid down earlier today and as if it were triggered by the act of my back touching a mattress, I was completely feverish, despite feeling absolutely fine five minutes prior.
