I wasn't really sure where to put this. It didn't seem to fit in P&CE. Nor even in the story research forum. But it was compelling enough to share. It might make very good fodder for anyone here who might like to include in their current WIP a portion about prison.

It's a brief video from YouTube by a guy whose YouTube screen name is George4Title. George is NOT a convict (or even an ex-convict). He's merely a guy at YouTube who does a daily vlog and has acquired a really huge following from that vlog. And part of that vast following includes some other guy who is himself an ex-con. (And sadly, he got convicted due to a bogus drug-related charge.)

This ex-con wrote an e-mail to George and told George the real deal of life in prison. It's VERY disturbing. I know there are TV shows about life in prison, but THIS one video far surpasses what those TV shows offer.

I know this is kind of a downer thread for Office Party, so if it fits better elsewhere, by all means move it.

(And watch it with steely nerves.)
