Link Down!! damn you wikiupload, another victim succumbed to your vile file deletery!

if you have files too large for the 20 mb here, or would rather leave that space for tabs, you could sign up for a google site which has 100 mb of free hosting.

also it's "WTF MY MIND IS BLOWN" not "WTF OH GOD MY EARS". so the virtuoso one.

Well done musenji, this is the most original sounding submission. I'm not saying the best but i'm not saying it isn't the best either (just haven't decided). And the ending was great, completely unexpected!
