    No, this is wht being awesome at a game looks like. He learned long ago that a shirt just gets in your way and can overheat you, causing need for water when you can’t afford a break.

    The focus and intent in his eyes says it all. Trippy picture though—lookit how many kids are crammed in there, and what the heck is that little curtain with the kid’s legs showing in the background? A second level?

    Yeah, looks like they’re in a basement, and it’s full of kids in June, so it’s hot as hell. The caption was incomplete: it just said something about the kid blowing up x amount of aliens.
