Dok isn't the Spider. :lulz:

How do you know?

If he were a Citizen, why would he have been trying so hard to get Joh'Nyx bussed? If it was just for giggles, it wasn't exactly helping the Citizens cause.

I disagree with EOC suggesting we don't bus off anyone this round. Because while he's right in that we can probably spare an extra subsuming, time is on our side, not bussing anyone this round is exactly what would be best for the Spider to get time back on its side. Or isnt it? :?

I don't see how.  We aren't really sparing a subsuming, we're avoiding sending a potential ally away on top of that subsuming (if we aren't sure).  You also were in favor of skipping the first bus when the odds of hitting the Spider were 3 in 17 (1 in ~5.66), yet aren't when the odds are a slimmer 1 in 10?

TRIP'S THE SPIDER!  (kidding)


Kind've.  :)

I can't personally add them, but I would like to see Kai include some or all of his In Those Days series.  They were great reads.

I don't think Dok would campaign so hard for Joh'Nyx, knowing that he'd be eliminated if he was wrong, if he was indeed the last Spider.

I'm keeping my vote for him because I see less to trust in his actions than in those of the remaining players.

That said, if we don't bus off someone this round, we're still in good shape.  Ten people remaining, 1 Spider, 3 Discordians, 6 Citizens.  The next subsuming should give us something to go on, and time is on our side with Discordians either spreading or stumbling upon the last Spider.

It actually might benefit us not to send anyone off, since we're likely as not to have two allies removed in one round rather than one.

Freeky, I appreciate that you think of me as a shifty bastard, but really I'm just cripplingly paranoid.  I've lawl of 5'ed myself into thinking that the Spider is capable of the most ridiculously complex plots and manipulation far beyond anything I could actually execute myself.  That being the case, I am just as clueless as to the actual identity of the Spider or Discordians as if I were roll a die for it.

Your job sounds like a lot of fun, EoC.  No, really.

The thing is, my job is actually pretty great.  Most of my time on PD is from there, I've read dozens of books, played through a few DS games, watch movies and football at work, and the pay isn't awful.  It's just the fucked up shit that I'm, well not exposed to, but privy to in some odd detached way.

A warrant out for $88? Christ.

What the hell could I say?  I responded with, essentially, "I agree, and I'm sorry."

Maybe as the weeks go by all of these won't be as disheartening.

I've given my reason, Freeky, and I hope the fact that I've been acting to benefit the citizens' winning has been clear.  I've been wrong, yeah, but so has everyone here.

I did point out that the people who didn't vote for Pho were suspicious, myself included.  I gave my reason, and I stick by it, and I'll be revisiting that reason after the INEVITABLE AWESOME VICTORY OF THE CITIZENS.  Actually, Ippie's failure to convincingly argue why he didn't vote for Pho is what led me to cast my vote against him (the first vote against him, for the record, so you know I wasn't going with the flow to stay alive).

Anyone still alive is a suspect, even though statisically they're not likely to actually be the Spider.  But if we're just throwing accusations around, Freeky, why are you so keen to determine who is next to go when we haven't even found out if Dok's our man yet?

It's a clever foundation you're working on.  Last round, you voted for me and said you thought I was the Spider even after it was clear Joh'Nyx would be going, without even giving a reason.  So now it's already in people's heads.  Now, you're re-establishing the distrust with a reason, in spite of me having already addressed it, to further sew that seed.  I can expect that if, somehow, Dok is not the Spider, that next round I'll be the target you focus on in hopes to get support.  Sounds exactly like how a Spider would divert attention.

BUT - I'm not accusing you of being the Spider.  Like I said, everyone still around is a suspect.  What I'm doing is making it clear that any action, significant or not, can be used as evidence against someone.  Cudgel pointed this out right before getting sent out (so, clearly, it's smart of me to use this proven ineffective technique  :lol:).

Man this game is fun.

I've been meaning to make this thread for a loong time.  It will be a depository for all the fucked up, depressing, and sometimes hilarious shit that I come across in my job.  Sometimes it'll come a few times a night, sometimes not for a few weeks, but I'll try to keep it running.

****************

A woman called today.  She'd received a notice in the mail that someone would be coming to pick her up and "deliver" her to court for money she owed.  Basically it was a notice that a warrant was out for her arrest.  I told her to get in touch with our warrant division, which unfortunately won't be available until tomorrow, but that as far as I knew nobody would be acting on that tonight.  She was upset.  Nearing tears.  Her voice quivered and she half-whispered, "I just think it's ridiculous, for eighty-eight dollars."

There really has been a sudden upswing in Evil lately, hasn't there? Curious isn't it?

I still consider myself Chaotic Neutral.

Studio Ghibli has mastered the fine art of telling you an old story while displaying a near hallucinogenic world.  That's how I explain "Ponyo", which while well executed, had the intellectual content of "Happy Feet".

I'll see "Howl" and "Nasca" if I have a chance, but their high water mark was still "Princess Mononoke" IMHO

Ponyo is mesmerizingly beautiful.  And Richter, it doesn't matter how intellectual it is with an earworm like

PONYO PONYO PONYO PONYO LITTLE FISH
SHE'S A LITTLE FISH IN THE DEEP BLUE SEA
PONYO PONYO PONYO SHE'S A LITTLE GIRL

Can't.  Shake.  The Cuteness.

Oh come now Dok, some of these secret enemies aren't even real.

I mean, what the hell is a "Cainad."

DOKTOR PANGO IS SO INSANE, HE IS WILLING TO BET ANYONE'S LIFE AGAINST YOUR ALLEGED WILLINGNESS TO PARTICIPATE. Sure -- the deaths of a thousand cities in my search for the MOST HOSPITABLE PLACE ON EARTH TO DIE sounds appealing now, but what if your puppy lives in one of those cities? What if your mother is quietly baking cookies one morning, or just putting the finishing touches on your 36th Basement Birthday cake, only to be suddenly interrupted by the GLARING RAYS and SEARING HEAT of the Doomsday device?


Hey, mass murder and heat rays are fine and dandy, but do not fuck up a perfectly good cake.

THEY CALL THEM SMART PHONES because they are, generally, next to HUMANS. By comparison, the phones are practically GODS in the area of computation and logic. YOU HOGS ARE HARDLY WORTH THE EFFORT IT TAKES TO PRODUCE SUCH HEAVENLY DEVICES; it is only because they are such magnificent creatures that they are made at all. It has nothing to do with convenience to Humans.

In 1974, I sat on a panel of scientists who were developing the first iteration of tiny electronic devices. I sat on that panel, and I CRUSHED THEM under the mountainous weight of my BIG IDEAS. They screamed. They kicked. They pissed themselves. Eventually, they suffocated and died. They were weak. They wanted the future you all think you have. They wanted FREEDOM OF INFORMATION and INSTANT CHAT and FRONT-FACING CAMERAS. THEY WANTED TO RULE THE WORLD FROM A THRONE OF GOOD INTENTIONS. And they never even made it out of R&D. I took the plans, I built the prototypes.

Do you think the radiation that continually permeates your saggy, flappy little bodies is an accident? NO! It is all part of THE PLAN.

PHASE TWO INVOLVES FLYING MONKEYS.

You've all been warned, you swine.
