Never check your friend's hard drive....

You know that friend that I mentioned in the previous post? The totally geeky one? He's apparently got a rather large collection of hentai, cosplay, and, um, "other" pictures that he's been carrying around on his laptop as backpacks across Europe. I don't know if he's got them to trade for food/shelter/favors, but I did a terrible thing.
I looked.
I cannot undo what I have done. I cannot get back that little part of my soul that just died. I CAN illustrate how I feel though:

It only took me a few minutes to throw together, but I think it conveys what I wanted it to: Opening my friend's "My Pictures" folder was very much akin to opening that damn box in Hellraiser. I seriously feel like hooks on chains broke through my computer screen and sunk into my (at the time) innocent flesh.
I miss the times when colors were brighter and children were still laughing in the park. Now the world is very cold....and filled with japanese video game characters doing things WITH things that they really, really shouldn't.

Good heavens. You're as deranged as you are (in a good way!) and you HADN'T seen that kind of stuff?

Oh, don't get me wrong. I've already been exposed to all the Goregasm, yaoi, digital yiffing, and smurf/Final Fantasy porn that befits your average internet traveller. I don't have a problem with it. It's not for me to judge...and I know a few of the artists, for better or for worse. That said:

What I saw went beyond all that. Don't ask me how. All that I had known before was only a lie to hide the horrors that were on Joseph's computer. The veil's been removed, and I just feel dirty.

Tell me you got to see the gif with the girl who grows...out.

Ohhh. You saw some of the stuff *beyond* the normal net weirdness.

...Oh dear.

If it's any consolation, were I living in Berlin, I'd come over and offer to help you remove your eyeballs. Washing and replacing optional.

What possessed you to look? Were you tricked or was it voluntary?

I think the Hellraiser Box parallel is pretty apt. No one WANTS to find bliss by being torn into a thousand pieces...but you don't really know what lives in the box until you open it.

Curiousity is a total bitch.

Was it hentai pedo scat bestiality or something? Was it someone shoving a baseball bat somewhere.... WHAT WAS IT!?!?!?!?

I'm with Jay. What was it? Do you think I would be scarred? It surprises me that you can be.
