You spend a few minutes stuffing your pockets with fungi; mostly mushrooms, but also a few bracket fungi and even what might be some sort of slime mould. Once satisfied, taking your time, and in no particular hurry, you amble over towards where you think you heard that screaming coming from. The glowing fungi are not even remotely enough to illuminate your path, so you advance slowly, with both hands out in front of you, and treading very carefully.
The ground rises, passes over a ridge, then descends precipitously before levelling off again. You hear some hissing clicking noises from somewhere to your left, and momentarily hope you might've found the source of the screaming, but it seems to be just more trilobites. They scuttle away and are gone before you can react. You continue onwards for quite some way, and eventually reach the shore of an underground lake. The glowing fungi are more common here, as well as on the opposite shore, at least a hundred metres away.
Quite unexpectedly, you stumble across a manmade structure: a short, stubby concrete pier extending into the lake. It is ridged and slopes down at the end, suggesting it may be for launching watercraft. Following the structure inland, you find, embedded into the concrete, the bottom of a ladder leading straight up into the black expanse above. You can hear faintly from above an airy thumping sound, like the sound of a helicopter's rotor, but slower and more irregular.
Heat the air around Dr. Gay Hitler until he (she?) gets too hot and runs away.
Place face in body's buttocks.
Scream, in quick succession, the fifty most common words in the english language.
Now that you have air immunity (passive skill), you can afford to really meddle with the air without fear of hurting yourself in the process. You spend 60 mana heating the air within two metres of you by 75K, then take a few steps towards the angry arthropod. Dr. Gay Hitler begins to charge towards you, but as soon as he enters your sphere of influence, hisses loudly and slips back into the water. A flawless success, it seems.
You find that the man has a fairly strong pulse and is breathing, but shows no response to being pinched or prodded. You drag him over to the nearest glowing fungus, pressing it against his face, and identify him as your foster father, Aaron Aaronovitch Aaronov. He is dressed only in his underwear. He has a nail file tucked behind his left ear, but you cannot find any other items on or near him. His skin and hair are not wet, so he doesn't seem to have actually been in the water recently. There is a swollen lump on the back of his head, suggesting he was knocked unconscious by a blunt impact.
Though you hate to admit it, you do actually somewhat care about this man, and you want the best for him, as far as possible. You certainly wouldn't wish upon him the embarrassment of being found by anyone outside the family in the state of having soiled himself. Just to be on the safe side, you have to check if any deposits have been made in his underwear.
convert skill points to mana
cast flammability on the other two while they aren't looking
use the rest of our mana to heat the air to 8~900K
You lack both the mana/skillpoint interconversion and flammability skills, which belong to Jack Conundrum-chan (you being Jack Aaronova).
You are now playing as Jack Conundrum-chan.
You currently have zero mana but three unspent skillpoints, so you do the obvious thing and convert them into 150 mana. You immediately spend 100 on casting flammability on the two Aaronova sisters, Jack and Ariadne. They don't suspect a thing. Unfortunately, you cannot see your perfidious plan through to completion, as you lack the heat air skill.
You are now playing as Jack Aaronova.
With your 170 mana, you can afford to heat the air within a one metre radius of you to a mere 700K, but that proves more than enough to set you spectacularly alight. Though you can resist the effects of your own arcane skills, this calamity was caused by Conundrum-chan's chicanery. Your skin, hair and clothing burst into a roiling mass of flame and smoke. Despite your preparations for this eventuality at >>710,711 rolling can't save you this time. You burn to death horribly and painfully.
Stop being a gibbering madwoman for once and calmly explain that the clones all ran away to places unknown. In exchange for this information, ask for a briefing on Jack Conundrum and Ariadne's activities. Then ask for a ride on what is presumably Stove Stove (or some similar incarnation.) Why not put all our Jacks in one Stove?
Two days until GochiUsa S2 starts, and then I can happily drown my sorrows in moé forever.

I acknowledge the physical and mental differences between the sexes and the evolutionary context in which they arose, but I also think in a modern society, while still keeping those differences in mind, people ought to do what they want to do and not be confined to their evolutionary pigeonhole. Depending on who I ask such a view either makes me a cis shitlord literally worse than Hitler or a SJW kike.
You acted so reasonable, and you weighed each side fairly, and you didn't make any assumptions, and you properly conveyed your ideas, and you made a well formed opinion. But now everyone knows that you acted reasonable, and you weighed each side fairly, and you didn't make any assumptions, and you properly conveyed your ideas, and you made a well formed opinion.
How is it possible to be literally worse than Hitler without having literally killed six million via Führerprinzip?
Visual hallucinations peaking at a severity 2. Imagery quickly fades away when focused on.
Gold-ball sized hail.
Hail sized golf-ball.
I feel good about myself in a non-descript way.
I agree with you. The "internet culture war" is really stupid. I try to stay out of it as much as possible.

The shirt was
A fairly nice podcast.
Fairly nice like one of those podcasts that'd be recommended to you by your podcast client, which mostly but not quite understands your tastes.
For instance, you wouldn't trust your podcast client to buy you a shirt.
Twinbee was a good Famicom game

Zeghamet Benis, quoting herself.
Anyway, the shirt
was fairly nice.

PRAISE THE EMPEROR
An anrcho-syndicalist American analytic philosopher and linguistics professor was teaching a class on Bertrand Russell, known logician.
hBefore the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Russell as the most influential philosopher of the 20th century, even more influential than Jacques Derrida or any other continental philosopher!h
At this moment, a brave, psycho-analytic, Hegelian Marxist philosopher and cultural theorist, who fully recognised the weaponisation and ideological basis of instrumental rationality, boldy stood up and tugged at his collar.
hMy god, pure ideology! How can you ignore the work of Lacan and the Frankfurt School and so on and so on, like that? h
The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied gContinental philosophy cloaks trvialities in fancy language and uses the scientific-sounding term 'theory' to describe propositions that could never be tested empirically. h
hWrong. If empricism is so important, as you would say, then how come you were so empirically wrong on the Khmer Rouge and Cambodia, and so on and so on?h
Despite rhetoric from the Australian federal government to toughen border control as a crackdown measure on illegal immigration, the city remains safe and welcoming, while celebrating diversity.

Sometimes I write things in this thread that aren't in my clipboard.
( ˃ ˂) Mouthfeel!
spumoni. whenever anyone asks "what's the good word?" my answer will always, always, be "spumoni."
(₯ิ_₯ิ)Α-̾ This thread should only be used to say very important things that you really care about and believe in. Please revise your ideas and their wording for at the very least 24 hours before submitting them.
According to the online tests I took, I'm INTJ. And according to some lady named Marina Margaret Heiss, "Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ's Achilles heel ... This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals ... Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense."
Which sounds like me.
I spent a whole day thinking about it, and then thinking about your words. And now I see the problem.
I looked at the descriptions of all the different types and all could apply to me if considered from the right perspective. Personality tests are basically horoscopes.
>>310 Eh, I guess. Well, at least I know none of the "extrovert" personality types could describe me, but that still leaves half of them.
(₯ิ_₯ิ)Α-̾ Cocaine and heroin should be sold where cigarettes are sold. When that happens, it will truly prove or disprove that ccoaine and heroin are more addictive than cigarettes.
(₯ิ_₯ิ)Α-̾ The reason some people quit using cocaine and heroin is because drug dealers aren't always easy to find.
(₯ิ_₯ิ)Α-̾ I can't help but look at the campaigns of Timur or Suleiman and think that as far as armies of fanatical Muslims laying waste to the countryside and slaughtering unbelievers go, IS are pretty lame.
(₯ิ_₯ิ)Α-̾ Money may not buy happiness, but it will buy shiny gadgets to distract you from how miserable you are.
(₯ิ_₯ิ)Α-̾ If talking about shitposting is shitposting, this post is a shitpost.
Patient was a no-pay. If you've ever gone in for a small, simple procedure and been horrified at your bill, it's because your procedure took five minutes but the birthing of Satan's placenta took two hours -- and she pulled a dine-and-dash. Healthcare workers genuinely want to help people, but nobody works for free.
I'm the guy who's gonna step outside. Are you coming or what?
(₯_₯)Α- Are you guys stepping out to smoke? I'll come too.
Only a man who has learned about the greatness and glory of God can experience direct communion with Him.
He's just a fresh-faced youngster, new to politics but catapulted to a prominent position because the party had to sack his predecessor unexpectedly.
He has not yet learned that this is what happens when politicians leave their ivory towers and move among the people they rape at every opportunity.
