Gas Masks


No one looks human wearing one of these things. Especially shirtless. They look like China Mieville characters.

Makes me think of some kind of erotic sci-fi with those phallic bits hanging down.

Have you read any China Mieville? That ties right in.

No, I haven't. I'll have to check it out.

He's brilliant, but difficult to read. Well worth it.

Gas masks have always freaked the hell out of me. I remember when my first boyfriend got one and thought it was cool... I knew it was over after that.

They turn people into elephant insects.

I especially dislike gas mask bongs.

That is so wrong. So very, very wrong.
