There’s no excuse for what I did – while some might try to use my inebriation as a mitigating factor, I put myself in that compromised mental state, and the guilt of that is entirely mine.

(Too early to queue the “solo mining will lead anyone to suicide” jokes that have been told since 2003? When does that resume?)
