I'd never be able to do Ironman or HCIM. I'm not organised enough to plan out my RS life to survive through self-sufficiency just for a day, let alone forever. I remember MetalManiac9 had a huge thread in Achievements way back before Jagex jumped onto the bandwagon - the guy was a monster (if anyone else remembers him, he was legit right?). In fact his ridiculous progress is what permanently put me off the idea in the first place haha. So my deepest of respect for all you guys who take up the gauntlet and run with it.
I won't lie, though, I laugh my arse off whenever I see a HCIM death announcement. Hardest when I first heard about people going out of their way to hunt them down in the Wilderness. Humans are such *****.
“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”
