This one is just so delightfully disconcerting.

Yeah, I don't know why everyone's so keen to jump on this Abstain guy.  We barely have any evidence against him!

The game's built on paranoia, which is kind of hard to go against. Too much temptation to vote against someone because they gave you the stink eye the other day or because their avatar makes you suspicious...

Speaking of which, I notice the "pulp hero" in your avatar doesn't have any nipples.

You know what else doesn't have any nipples?

Yeah.

Looks like the "wait and see" thing didn't last that long.

You talk about it like it's a game, like it's something past.  You act like it's a hobby, or reminisce about the times when the novelty was still new.  But you don't remember.  You weren't there.  I was.

The tension of the two piles stacked up, ready for both sides to attack.  The weight of the little metal piece in your hand.  The hungry look when you were playing for keeps.

But then there was the one guy.  Maybe you did pogs for the fun of it, maybe you did it for the game.  I say did because you don't play pogs like you play with, say Lego.  You did them.  Like smack.  Well maybe you played them for fun, and hey, maybe I did too.  Not this one guy.  I can remember the look in his eyes.  Crazed and malevolent, not looking for the sport of it.  Only the destruction.

He had these slammers.  Oh god the slammers.  Kept them in some little pouch that always appeared out of nowhere, like him.  I don't even think he went to our school.  Hell, he might not have been from our state.  But whenever the thunder clouds were low in the sky he'd be there, those eyes shining like the lightning the proceeded.  The slammers.  I've still never seen anything like them.  Custom, had to be, or maybe bought using whatever life that no longer shone from his corneas.  Wrought iron, jagged and rusty, maybe, hell, it could have been a shuriken.  I just remember the sound, and the look.

Thing is, he never flipped any of them over.  He never needed to, or wanted to really.  Not after what he'd done to them.  What use did he have for a torn up little bottle cap, abused beyond even the loosest schoolyard regulation.  You can't win that way, we thought, and technically no, he never did.  But you always knew he'd won his own game - and you lost, hard.  Didn't make any sense to us then.  Couldn't talk about it much.  Never had the right words and, well, talking just made it more real, didn't it?

So talk about your game of pogs, like you know.  Like you were there.  But you weren't fucking there.  You didn't see the shit that I saw.

You couldn't.

I don't believe in abstaining, but I do believe in arbitrarily dividing the votes to the point of no productivity.

I'll pop back in when voting is officially open.

It took me a paragraph or two to get that it was satire as well.  Once my hate subsided or the Watchpersons comment.  Long as hell, but definitely good shit.   :D

I can't trace shit. My great-grandfather came to NY from Calabria under a different name because he was running from some shit in Italy.

Later, after he cleaned up his mess, the name he came under mysteriously disappeared and a bunch of Cavallaris mysteriously started running shit at South Street Seaport.

We go back, more or less, to about 1870.

But since my family INVENTED "out of wedlock", it is utterly impossible to verify anything before that on my mother's side.

On my dad's side, all evidence points to us being very, very untalented pirates out of Cornwall, who lasted JUST long enough to breed before getting their necks stretched.  We've also been able to pin down 2 famous sheep thieves (WTF?), a whole family of boat wreckers, and a poisoner.

Totally not surprised you come from a long line of bastards.   :)

...but too much is always better than not enough...

Its a helluva lot easier to add a bit more than try to take away. Is it more work to gain weight or lose weight?

...depends on who you are.

*paging EoC*

 :sad:

Losing weight on the bacon diet.

Relative newcomer's thought...  I think I can count on one hand the number of people around here who actually know what color my skin is.  Never got the feeling anybody gave much of a shit.

You're in the SCA.

That's the whitest shit imaginable.

I'm totally cool with a discussion about it, actually, which I think you and I talked about briefly on facebook.  I was just pissed with the way it came up, not the accusation itself.  Because really, I am a white motherfucker.  White trash, yeah, but white.

D: it wasnt our fault the picture was grainy we used a disposable camera & the pictures came back like crap. thats what we get for using film in the age of digital

heres a more clear picture. venice beach 2007 or 08


You have to understand that, to BadBeast, that first picture was as clear as, say, the reality in which he finds himself, not only a product of the perpetual fog of the Brit bastard's home but also the particularly dedicated attitude he holds toward mind altering substances.   :)

These are awesome.  I really love the tone - it's entirely an account of how fucked you get, yet done with what seems like genuine amusement.  Definitely good stuff.
