A Cautionary Tale

Wherein what I thought was an original idea was in fact done before - multiple times

OK, I was going to do this whole thing on how following the dark path, and going after the brass ring, or, maybe, the golden ring, was a sure fire way to destroy and waste your life. Then I was going to talk about how a young man, with his life before him, and talents to offer the world, basically became a willing thrall to a power that consumed him, and then tossed him aside, leaving him a broken wastrel; someone barely alive, feeding off his bitter memories of the loss of what was once most precious to himself, namely, himself, though he somehow never figured that out.

And then I was going to show this tremendously funny and hilarious juxtaposition of pictures, and comment on how once he was powerful and the mighty trembled, and now he is simply pathetic, repeating the same nonsense over and over, and the only response is annoyance. Then you were going to follow this link to see outrageously hilarious before and after pictures of:

The Price of Surrendering Your Soul to Darkness

However, in my quest for photos (the one above I actually went and found separate pics and joined them together myself) I found three different examples of someone doing the exact same thing, though not with the same story line. They were basically of the "separated at birth" variety.

Anyway, it was funny to me when I started it.
