You’ve heard me say it countless times on this podcast… people around you are committing murders. You aren’t (hopefully), but that doesn’t mean the guy waving at you while raking his leaves as you jog by on your neighborhood run is innocent. The nice lady in line in front of you at the bank that strikes up a conversation about how pretty the weather is today, may be hiding literal skeletons in her closet. The simple fact is, there ...

They thought he was a freak and handicapped, but he would show them just how powerful he was. Yeah, his hands could have been used for good and could have continued the good name of the family business… but he chose a different path.

Fantasies are okay… completely normal, right?

For a family man with a mundane existence, life was fine... in a plain, uneventful kind of way.

He didn’t mind the appearance of his outwardly boring existence... because that façade served him well and kept his fantasies out of sight and concealed enough to not be found out.
