Dear Aunty Pink
Some of my friends have had their lunch money stolen by neighborhood bullies. I have been taking Karate lessons and now have a green belt. My friends really need my help, but Mom says "Fighting isn't lady-like...". What should I do?
Three bricks, one blow.
Dear Angelica Synn
thanks for asking!
Well this is surely a stumper... I mean you call yourself a "hero" right? or "heroine" whatever.
Sooooo..... do we help the friends being picked on by the neighbourhood bullies or listen to your Mom and keep your manicure clean?
"Ladylike" is such a modernist construct with absolutely no meaning beyond the one you assign it... or in this case your Mom who appears to think being ladylike means being a cowardly wimp who walks out on their friends.
That being said if your friends can't stand up for themselves and get a few karate lessons then screw them. Honestly I have no patience with people who don't help themselves. Probably too busy running around being "ladylike" and talking about perms.
Walk away from this sad bunch of losers and get a proper friend who'll have your back when you get in a fight.
Hope this helps
Dear Aunty Pink
Uh.. Where am I? How did I get here?
Last thing I remember there was this wall of nothingness destroying the universe. We stoled Cap's Spaceship to fight it then lights out.
Dear Private Avenger
Thanks for asking !
It's good to see you... thank goodness you're ok.... where are you staying? And why are you wearing a shower curtain and ... what is that? a dress? and flip flops? ....
Dear oh dear...
OK you look kind of cute like that I'll let you be my sidekick again.
Anyway, Cap's spaceship got blown up I think, something like that. We were firing at the wall of nothing then boom! When I woke up I was in someone's front garden, they didn't seem to like that much... so I hit him... whatever... he dropped some money which was handy.
This seems to be some weird parallel universe. Imagine a place where a load of supers are running around behaving like amateurs. No super-powered cars or anything, and thankfully no more SSSSStarbucks with their dodgy biscotti, and the mayor isn't Jeffy Knight, which might mean the council is less corrupt.
On the downside, no Captain Avenger yet. I'm sorry. I'll miss the big guy. His credit card is still working though so I'm hoping that means he's somewhere... and you know, no body.
A few of us seem to have made it through. ... and some of us are kind of... the same... but different... Acidburn is calling herself Angelica Synn (I KNOW RIGHT????? Believe me I've been keeping a close eye on someone who calls herself THAT... but so far no attempted mass-murder or horse-killing)
Do you need somewhere to stay?
Hope this helps.
PS I'm pretty sure there's some kind of organised crime going on in the city. Illegal yoyo trading. I'm gonna go check it out. you stay here, keep the suburbs safe
CAN they put an orange highlight on
arr! thanks for asking
Free Will is neither a whale nor an illusion nor an construct of thy modernism. Rather it be... it be? IT IS! Screw this talking like a pirate I'm talking like myself.
Free Will is an important facet of humanity. Without it we are all mindless automatons which is of course what The Man wants but he won't be getting it on my watch. Humans can do what they want. Online they can do anything they want and most make films of it more's the pity. Do not google "Free Will" and "Rule 34" at the same time that is all I am saying. Humans have been doing as they wish, within their abilities since the dawn of time. Starting with refusing to worship some jumped up super powered beings calling themselves "gods" and ever since. If someone does not do something within their abilities it must be because they do not wish to. Rules would not exist were we to decide not to follow them. (I have been choosing not to follow the rules for a long time and I have your wallet and credit cards to prove it).
Back to the question. I am not of course familiar with the mechanics of this forum as I can't be bothered hacking it, my time is better spent beating up goons. However it can't be that hard... So we must conclude that though they could highlight OFF TOPIC posts in orange they are choosing not to. There's that pesky Free will...
personally I am no Orange Man, nor woman, but if you live outside of Europe you may not understand why that mattereth,
hope this helps
Right... So, I have a question...
How is discussing character development, and interacting with other players, considered "Off Topic"...?
Just because blah blah blah...
Anyway... My question is THIS:
Can we see your boobs...?
"thanks for asking"
I have no idea... my old newspaper column was a popular and well-loved piece of the whole of the forum of one of the most succesful games owned by a multi-national company... had it been shoved off to off-topic (with I may note NOT A SINGLE WORD OF EXPLANATION either by PM or in the thread) it would have never been seen ... off-topic is where moderators send threads to die. As you well know, ZC being as you and I moderated together (I got you that big break, don't ever forget it)... anyway this is wandering dangerously out of character and off the topic.
Which is ironic in an off-topic thread.
No you can't see my boobs.
I was gonna say "if you ask again I'll Triple-Tap your weakest team member" but it occurred to me that you'd ask again just to make sure I did
Then I remembered I'd hit him again anyway on principle.
hope this helps
