Just playing the vinyl version of Silvertown, and only just noticed that the track listing is wrong on the back. Took me long enough to notice it though lol. 6 Kasım, 22:55 · Herkese Açık.

A character who has survived a hanging. They will frequently sport a scarred or deformed neck as a result. This may just indicate that he is a real hard case and too tough to kill easily, or it may be used to show what a bad life he has led and to explain his hatred of the world. A Bungled Suicide may also be involved. If he survived three attempts, a sporting (or superstitious) executioner may have let him go. Probably because it's best to keep on the good side of a Badass like that.
