Double Feature - Double Dose
Roll up your sleeve, chief. It’s time for a shot of the green stuff. You might feel a slight scratch, but it probably won’t hurt a bit. What you’ve heard about tracking chips, 5G and magnetism is absolute bunk, but side-effects may include: rapid flesh deterioration, jerky physical movement and an urge to kill.
