I believe you can submit suggestions for new portals.

That's pretty much what I did during lunch.  There was one portal I wanted, so I basically just kept walking around the area, farming blasters and going back for another round. 

It's odd how attahed one gets to a portal.  I suppose this is sort of like virtual territorial pissing contests.

It totally is. I'm really attached to the dog park, because DOG PARK. I own the DOG PARK.


What's a metaphor, again?

Ah, the not crossing thing was what was confusing me.  Yeah, I have tons of portal keys.  In a way, it's a good thing my block got hammered, because it broke all these wack-ass fields that had been building up.

I'm not sure you killed it... After stating the supposed paradox, people came up with some responses, and, well, it seemed like it ended fairly naturally, except some doofus decided to make a meta-style comment on the life of the thread and is currently feeling a bit embarassed about it, to tell the truth.

well yea, but she-Hulks thing isn't crawling up buildings in a spider-like manner. One of her things however, was jump roping naked for an entire issue once.



Pop quiz, hotshot: Is this sexualizing or objectifying?

This morning, the Resistance took the water towers and the Whole Foods. The bourgeois scum seek to control XM completely, and keep it from the hands of the people, and our betterment. We are weak; our forces are not enough. Backed into our ghettoes, our territory diminishes hourly. A powerful Level 7 Smurf scum has taken the garden, and I, a lowly level 3, cannot long hold the dog park against him. Pym has vanished. I fear that soon I, too, shall perish.

I just got Lvl 4 today.  You probably know this, but you get about 100AP every time you hack a Resistance portal.  Just walking around and hacking can get you to level up that way.  But the Lvl 5 limit is 150k.  That's gonna take a while.

Yeah, a portal inside a larger field is pretty much useless, isn't it?

You can still link it to create sub-fields, which strengthens all of the connected portals and makes them harder to take over.


Ah.  Gotcha.

I'm trying to figure out how the system determines which portals you can link to.  I seem to be unable to choose at will.


Also, my workplace just got attacked pretty hard.  It's difficult to stay at my desk rather than run out defending my portals.  Guess I'm hooked.

Sadly, this theory isn't that great at convincing people who don't believe in a sentient Creator-type thing.

But we've been down that road.

I cannot be held responsible for the thoughts of such optimists.

In any case, given the data, it works as well as anything else.  "God didn't read the directions."  The Christian bible says we were made in his image, which tells you two things:

1.  He has one more rib than we do, due to scavenging the prototype for materials, and

2.  HERPADERP, on a universal scale.

It also suggests that any aliens - who are NOT likely to look like us - are NOT in his image, and the very first thing we should do on contact is drop big rocks on the blasphemous things.

I have to admit, your way certainly sounds like more fun.

Well, fuck.

Depressingly accurate synopsis, Cain.
