I don't even remember what I was looking for in the first place. Next thing I know, I'm watching this video. And I realize I am really watching a video about attempting to pulverize a Cacodemon from Doom in a blender. And I think to myself, "This has got to be the dorkiest thing I've seen all day!"
The rest is history.
