By John Corry

From the flap:

“Imagine if Tom Wolfe had been born in 1975 and instead of writing 'Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers' in 1970, he'd have written a book about the state of society and it's obsession with social media, internet fame and all of the intricacies that go along with it. On shrooms. Using Chuck Palahniuk's 'Pygmy' as his sole piece of inspiration.... you'd have John Corry's 'Phi11y's P-Hines[T] /> #Hardcore Phant-[O]m$'.” -Travis Besecker (author and comedy writer)

After 19-year-old reformed gang member Randall Gähstŭr is brutally murdered at the start of the Baltimore riots of 2015, the subsequent investigation leads both his former closest friends and the two very different special agents assigned to investigating the case into a web of conspiracy involving everything from police corruption, to global world domination, to manipulated/unnecessarily clung-to gang violence (relatively defined), war, and, eventually /> r(E)volution.

**Franatical (franatically, franatic)- Derived from a combination of ‘Frantic’ and ‘Frat; to be aggressively ignorant in the way one goes about his or her aggressions, oftentimes so much so that the fact that one is being aggressive is easily accidentally overlooked. (Ex: Billy was so franatical when he opened the refrigerator to find that his brother, who had been staying with him for the past week due to a personal lack of funds, had drunken the entire case of expensive Left Hand™ (Legal) stout, by himself, that Billy had bought just the day before!) (Ex: Donald Trump (just Donald Trump, that’s the example).)

**Crazy-Adjunct-Parasitically (crazy-adjunct-parasitical)- A type of insanity which attaches itself at the closest level, almost to the point of being indistinguishable from the mind; a change in one’s DNA to completely conform to its own, now overwhelming, ‘crazy’. (Ex: Religion could be argued to be nothing more than a crazy-adjunct-parasitical guise of professionalism for true spirituality. Ex: Donald Trump is a crazy-adjunct-parasitical little cuck #ButSmartPeopleDon’tUseI-nsults )

**In-Detail-edly (indetailedly, indetailed)- When something is so factually detailed, graphic, and well-defined that it almost feels as if one’s mind is permanently (momentarily?) transferred to it, without the possibility of escape. (Ex. Emma Watson is inspiring and indetailed when it comes to the way in which she goes about making change in the world, without being too much of a dick about it #CelebrityCrushes #FuckOff ) (Ex. Donald Trump is an indetailed fucking idiot/shit-for-brains #Offended,ComeFightM-e(Intellectually(Please<3))(Like,You’reFuckingHypocritesInThisInstance) )

**Contemplatingly- To be in a state of deep contemplation *TheDeepestContemplation , yet still aware of one’s surroundings. (Ex: It would probably be best to go into this special meeting of congress addressing the potential of man-made climate change reduction as contemplatingly as possible) (Ex: …Is Donald Trump even capable of doing anything contemplatingly? ($))

**Beliefs-Institution- One’s personal set of beliefs, very close to the heart, and the process by which one goes about forming his/her opinions. (Ex: My beliefs-institution, many years in the making, since I was born in fact, has gotten me to have the opinion that the band Bad Religion is totally badass) (Ex: Donald Trump’s beliefs-institution has certainly got quite the way of making The Douche™ come off as having no real spine aside from one which has directly only to do with money ($))

**Herculeaically (Herculaeic)- Derived form the Greek myth ‘Hercules’, meaning: superhuman strength, of a godly quality. (Ex.: Donald Trump is fucking far from fucking Herculaeic (as much as he may think otherwise))

The Mathew Principle- “To those who have everything, more will be given. From those who have nothing, everything will be taken.” (Bible: Mathew 13:12) A term used in economics to describe the fact that the more one succeeds, further success becomes easier, and the more one fails, further failure becomes less avoidable
