That is by far my favorite of all of Roman's lies. Gotta love how he made it sound like he had the office next to Steve Jobs when in reality he was a sales "executive" hawking Apple product to customers from a cubicle.

Added the Amityville Horror wood variant print saga to the timeline, as well as the fact that the idiot sold subscriptions as Odd City before actually forming a separate legal entity. Interesting point in case any sub holder decides to sue him...

My favorite bit was when everyone believed Roman had in fact gotten kicked out. And rallied behind him.

Roman didn't even have the courtesy to shoot me a fake tracking number. I feel so ignored.

Not really sure what's going on, but I think Roman said he's leaving flaming bags of poo on people's doorsteps, so keep checking guys!
