So I'm not the only one who likes licking the salt off of their plate? Woo hoo! I also use the fingertip method to pick up the salt.
I also added a few more events to the Johto Quest Episode 3 outline (http://pastebin.com/7PcDeFdx). Yeah I managed to work in the Kimono Girls. I think I might have them wear different coloured Kimonos that correspond to which Eeveelution they have. For example, Kimono Girl Zuki owns an Umbreon. Therefore, she will wear a black kimono.
Not only that but I trued to correct the plot hole in the second episode you mentioned. Here's what I got:
(She grabbed the ball off of the machine and just as she was about to hand it to Emily, she noticed the bandages on her arm.
"Woah! What happened to your arm?" the woman gasped.
"Um... I'd rather not talk about it." Emily said meekly.
"Oh... Um... Okay then. But if it's anything like what happened to Gerald..." Before the woman could finish what she was saying, Emily cut in.
"You know the Gerald story too?" Emily asked with astonishment.
"Yeah. Martha told me about it." the woman replied quietly. She then shuddered and froze for a few moments. These moments soon turned into minutes as she continued to stand behind the counter without moving. Eventually, the egg shaped creature opened the door behind the woman and waddled over to her, carrying Eddy in its arms. The creature called out to the woman but unfortunately, it got no response. It tried tugging on the woman's lab coat but she just continued to stand there and do nothing. At that point, the creature placed Eddy on the counter and stormed off into the back room, slamming the door behind it.)

Flocking to Discuss Strategy
Them getting the Pokemon names wrong is so embarrassing and unforgivable. I could forgive the wrong moves and moves having effects on types that they shouldn't since it is a show, but getting the names wrong is just horrid. Hellsing Ultimate does have a lot of philosophical moments and even a couple of moving ones. Thank you for being cool about it and for planning on checking it out! I'll get back to you on strategic moments later on tonight if all goes as planned. For now I have to try to get something figured out lest it drive me crazy XD Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 20:52, January 19, 2017 (UTC)
- I don't want to spoil anything, but Joseph Joestar does a lot of sneaky, sleight of hand things to win. I think during the fight with Straizo he did something with reflections to make Straizo think he'd been hurt or killed, that's childs play compared to what you'll see him do later on :D Ironically, Ash turning on the sprinklers so that Pikachu could electrocute Brock's Onix comes to mind as well. 91 Days has a really good part (it's about the Mafia).
- There are these two brothers in the crime family that the anti-hero protagonist has joined, one's named Nero and I don't remember what Nero's younger is named, so I'll refer to him as NYB. The protagonist wants them all dead because the head of the family killed his father when he was a child, so he's orchestrated the deaths of many of the heirs to the Mafia Family. Anyway, NYB has been manipulated by another crime family and is convinced that if he kills Nero they'll be left in peace and he can rule. Well, Angelo (the protagonist), storms the room with Nero and corners NYB at his desk. Angelo spots a gun on NYB's desk and picks it up off the desk for Nero to see, he then slams it back down on the desk and leaves the room. NYB picks up the gun and tries to shoot Nero, but is too slow and is shot and killed by a crying Nero. Outside of the room we see Angelo dump empty bullets out of his pocket into a potted plant; he'd emptied the gun before placing it back on the desk. Nero thought that Angelo had put the gun back on the desk so as to test his brother's loyalty, but in actuality he just figured NYB would grab the gun and try to shoot Nero and would get executed. 91 Days is a really good and psychological anime because of things like that.
- The difference between the Hellsing series is that they are just different ways of telling the story. Hellsing Ultimate is newer and over higher quality in both terms of story, animation and art. I think Cat-boy is actually named Schrodinger, but I won't swear to it XD Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 05:13, January 20, 2017 (UTC)
Reply to "Grammar List 2" Message
Sure you can send that list of grammar errors and whatnot. I suggest posing it on my talk page. Sorry I haven't messaged you in a bit but I've been busy working on my plot outline for the third episode of Johto Quest. If you want, I can send you the latest version of the outline.
You know what that whole living underground thing reminds me of? The Under from Pokemon Colosseum. Basically, The Under is an underground city that was once a mining town but has since abandoned the mining idea in favor of a plain old city. That's just the cliff notes version of it though. Here's the article about it if you want more information (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/The_Under).
How did you manage to sneak in a cake, punch, and a whole bunch of other things into a church without anyone noticing? I'd imagine that would be nearly impossible to pull off. But anyways, that was a nice thing you did for that guy. I bet he was really happy about it.
For the Cape Cod pasta, I'm trying to figure out what comes after this part: ("Hai." the woman replied. The two had parted ways as Kristy just sat there smiling, staring at her newly acquired yen. She quietly slipped the cash into her pocket and walked away from the bed to go find her mother.)
Reply to "I'm Going to Show You How To Sneak In Food. Just So You Never Figure Out How To Do It!" Message
Wow! That is a lot of spelling mistakes! Then again, it is a long episode so that's bound to happen. I'm not sure if you brought it up in your latest message but did you want to look at the outline for episode three? I can put it into pastebin if you want.
"I do wonder why Kristy's mother didn't notice any of this, though" Here's my answer to that. You see, when Kristy finds her mother, the mom can explain that when Kristy fell asleep, her mother went over to find an employee to help them move the bed to the checkout counters but had to walk all around the store to find one since they were apparently understaffed.
Warning! This might make you hate ice-cream.
The first two were the best. Though, if you thought those were disturbing, I have something terrifying

So today, I started taking an online class through my local community college. I'm actually taking two classes from my college but I'm going to alternate between them. One class is for HTML/CSS and the other is for general computer programming. I did one assignment for the HTML class and almost finished a project for said class.
Okay so here's the outline for the third Johto Quest episode as of today: (http://pastebin.com/LfBFAhVd). Speaking of outlines, here's something completely unrelated. I plan on watching videos about lost media to reinvigorate my interest in writing the Cape Cod pasta since my mind has been focused on Pokemon lately. Though I will try and correct those grammar errors in the second episode tonight if I can.
Steeling the Show
Just wanted to let you know that a new Forged in Fire comes on History tonight at ten since you said you didn't know when it was on. Hope all is well.
- I don't know about that. It seems to me that the commercials wanted simply to do something very disturbing to bring more attention and stand out. I mean, seriously, the only ice-cream brand name I know is Little baby's Ice-Cream. And Nirvana, but just because I like the band. Fun fact: 1. The first commercial is the most disturbing when you remove the word ice-cream, and 2. "Ice cream is a feeling." is my new motto.
- For the full effect of what I described, watch this video (at about 30:30). The tone of the narrator is everything. Tension builds when his voice growls at "I love my life" and I swear to God, I get shivers every time he finishes the last sentence with "feeling". It sounds like he has a ragegasm. The channel itself is pretty weird, when it's not creepy videos...it's this.
- As for baby oil, like hot-dogs, it's better when you don't know.
- Today in some places you could get charged with hate crimes for calling someone the "wrong pronoun".
- My Romanian and History teachers made great jokes constantly. I remember one particular time in History class, the teacher was drawing Romania around WW1 and at the time it looked...like a penis. Obviously, as simple-minded teenagers we all started laughing for about three minutes. He finally got sick of it and told us, "I'll show you how little you know about your own country". He gave us a test and only I and another kid knew that on December 1 1918 Transylvania united with Romania (the others wrote "The Romanian Country", which is incorrect). He made all of them write 6 times, on the board and in their notebooks, "My country's name is Romania." I think they remembered it after.
- Also, I just realized I put the wrong link in an above message. Go here (I'm pretty sure it's right this time) and go to 30:30.

Damn it! How did I forget the 'W' in wringer? Ugh! It's the same with the word "opossum". You see, this is what happens when you have silent letters!
I've been doing some work correcting the spelling errors in the Johto Quest episode. But holy shit are there a lot of errors! I'm at the part where Martha is telling Emily and Eddy her backstory. I'm not sure how long the correcting process is going to take but given how this episode is longer than the last one, it's going to take a lot longer. On that note, I finished my next Haunting Hour review yesterday.
Speaking of The Haunting Hour, I added a new part to the Cape Cod pasta. Here it is: ("Hai." the woman replied. The two had parted ways as Kristy just sat there smiling, staring at her newly acquired yen. She quietly slipped the cash into her pocket and walked away from the bed. As she was walking away, she looked around and noticed that her mother was nowhere in sight.) I'm not sure how Kristy will react to this. Will she be scared because it's like the nightmare she had earlier? Or will she have a completely different reaction?
Hi Raidra, how has everything been? Is your mother feeling better? Did you eat any chocolate recently? I hope everything is going okay with you! Luigifan100 15:16, January 27, 2017 (UTC)

So I recently watched the HBO documentary Beware the Slenderman. In short, it was both informative and emotional. Not only that, but there were a few other surprises besides how informative and emotional it was. So in the documentary, there was this scene where they took all the videos that was on either Morgan or Anissa's Google Plus page and one of the videos featured was an UltraHypnosis video. This was a big surprise to me because I watch UltraHypnosis videos like almost every single night! I mean holy crap! That's like the last thing I'd expect to see in a documentary on Slenderman.
I'm going to work on correcting more errors in the second episode of Johto Quest tonight. That is if I don't get the urge to sleep. I know that the Face Bank can eat coins but can it eat paper bills? Honestly, I don't see it. I feel like it would shred the bills.
Reply to "Slendy: The Untold Story" Message
From what I saw, Anissa seemed to show the most emotion during her interview with the cop, which leads me to believe that she must've had some remorse for her actions. Of course, she could just be a really good actor for all we know. Also, I have to give the documentary serious kudos. For the most part, they didn't try to blame Slenderman or Creepypastas in general for the girls' behaviour, which would've been really easy to do. Honestly, I might watch the documentary again.
If somehow, one of my stories ended up on the Creepypasta Wiki (one of the most prestigious sites on the web by the way) I won't put a disclaimer on them because, in my eyes, Creepypastas are no different than scary stories that were around before them. Not only that but I don't think the author should be responsible for the actions of their readers. I'm not sure about a trial but I can link you to the Wikipedia article about the stabbing and this article from the Washington Post.
So I made up a plot outline for the Sunny Hill Farms pasta and put it on Google Docs so I can work on it on any device no matter where I am. Right now, I'm currently brainstorming ideas for scary things that can happen on a farm. So far I have two ideas. One, either a farmhand or a farm animal getting attacked by a wild animal like a coyote, and two, accidents with farm equipment. I never lived on a farm so those are my only two scary farm things I have so far. But maybe as the story progresses, the couple, specifically Becky, becomes more unnervingly attached to the protagonist. Not only that, but the protagonist also starts to learn some of the dark secrets that the farm has to offer, such as the fact that they don't use anti-biotics on sick farm animals so that way they can remain "organic" as per the law.
Reply to "Sorry. That Headline Has Already Been Used. Please Try Another!" Message
There was yet another interesting tidbit in the documentary. At some point in the documentary, I think someone had said that one of the girls recalls seeing Slenderman at about age five. In 2014, both girls were in the sixth grade, which means that they were around twelve or thirteen at the time. So in 2007, they would've been five or six years old. However, Slenderman wasn't a thing until about 2009 so my theory is at one of the girls might've seen something similar to Slenderman at that age.
For the second saftey sign you showed me, I guess we can call the guy in the sign a (puts on sunglasses) benderman! (The Who screams YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!). So in the outline, I've added the following events:
(22. Once all of the cows are hooked up, Becky says to watch the cows until the milk flow stops, which will be indicated by a beeping sound, followed by a flashing green light. She then says that she’s going to go attend to something else and gives the protagonist her number in case if something goes wrong.
23. When Becky leaves, the protagonist looks around and finds a milk crate to sit on. After that, they sit down, pull out their phone, turn on their data, and starts watching a video.)
After this, the milking process will be successful but when the protagonist tries to unhook one of the cows (mainly Mary), she gets spooked from the way the protagonist removes the udder tubes and moos loudly. After that, I'm not sure what she'll do. I guess I'll have to do some more research on how spooked cows behave. I did hear that a spooked cow might charge at someone, but I'm not sure if Mary would be able to charge if she's partitally unhooked from the machine.
Everything is better with Squidward! I went in expecting L to have Spongebob's voice and Light to be Squidward XD
Yay! You've put your idea to pen and paper :D I like the idea of a shapeshifter assistant; normally the shapeshifter would be the one in charge and manipulating things! I approve of this shift from normalcy~
- Hehe, You've got to be brave and crazy to prank call L! I like there being different modes for the shapeshifter.

- Officer- "Yeah, but you small awful!"
- Batman- "I was in captivity for two days. And I don't have to smell nice, I'm Batman."
- Officer- "W-Wait... If you were in captivity for two days and you smell awful, then how are you in your Tuesday suit?"
- Batman- "I'm Batman."
- The movie sounds funny and I never expected that from a Lego film. I remember a commercial for it going something like this:
- Someone- "Why does the Batmobile only have one seat?!"
- Batman- "Last time I checked, I only had one butt."

Message from a time traveler
The header practically means that I only watched the "Top 15 scariest animated YouTube videos" now...after a month. Jesus, I have to make a program. Anyway, while the video didn't meet my standards of scary (not saying much, most horror-things don't) I found it very interesting. It kinda reminded me of "Haunted car", the first jumpscare video I ever watched and the only video that nearly gave me a heart attack. To anyone who came up with that idea, go screw yourselves!
Anyway, the two that got most of my attention were the fisherman one (most likely because of the philosophical message derived from seeing a creature regurgitating its flesh-eating babies inside someone) and Backwater Gospel. Because I'seen it before (as can be observed here) and everything about it is so badass.
The bird thing becomes even nastier when you realize that the exact thing happens very often with some species of cuckoos. Interestingly, if the mother is intelligent enough to realize that the cuckoo baby isn't hers and kills or abandons it, the cuckoo family go after her. Yes, there is a cuckoo mafia.
As for the horror video blog, I feel like even with the recent release of Resident Evil 7 and things like this, there is only enough gore for me for a good period of time. That being said...I don't know if you've seen Rick and Morty, but there was a secondary character in there called Mr Jellybean who is, simply put, a pedophile. Believe it or not, the origin material is even more disturbing (Warning: Highly NSFW)

Not only that, but I also decided to make a TV Tropes page for it (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Fanfic/PokemonJohtoQuest) in order to promote it and hopefully get more people to read it. The page needs a bit of work but I'll let other people add to it.

Ugh! Spoilers! Well that's an episode I'm going to skip! Though I wonder what happened to that Litten from episode seven. I hope it comes back. So I found this picture of a real life owl next to a Rowlet plushie and I've been wanting to send it to you go a while but I keep forgetting about it. Here's the image:
So you know that TV Tropes page I made for Johto Quest? Well I think it was one of the best decisions I've made because it's definitely drawing attention to the series. Not only that but, the TV Tropes page also shows up when you search for it on Google. How cool is that?
Sorry to hear about Doom. I was just about to send a message to him. Should I send it and wait for a response or wait until he's resolved the problem to send it?
You've Been Showcased!
You were selected for one of my random writer's showcases, you can read your own showcase here
That suicide thing reminded me of something funny
Side note-did you notice my last message (other than this one, of course)?
Which of the videos?
I have to say, my favourite parts were the singing parts. The commentary was funny by itself, but the singing parts make me laugh out loud. As for the people in the video, I think my favourite was the tweaker. Poor guy had to have balls to just stay there. If I saw a dude climbing down a building after staying on top of it almost naked I'd run the hell away. Apparently the abs guy is actually pretty introverted in real life, through that doesn't make the videos any less...cringy (I hate that word). For some reason I thought the moment in the second video when Ethan (the host) literally threw the noodles in the microwave was absolutely hilarious.
Hmm, most of these shows actually look like they'd rather either make me laugh or feel bored. The part that made me remain in disbelief was the puppeteer basically being a pedophile. I mean, it just seemed way too obvious to be true. One of my favourite creepy videos on YouTube is The Cat with Hands. Don't worry, it's a bit creepy but not super creepy. If you want something very creepy, watch the video that comes right after it.

I think it would be pretty interesting to see Ash use a Stoutland on his team. I wonder what kind of moves it ones and whether or not Ash will ride it.
Honestly for me, the worst Pokemon anime series is the Unova series (Best Wishes). Not only was it unnecessarily made into a soft reboot (hence why Ash acts like an idiot in that series), but it was apparently so bad, that the writers of the series got fired. Am I saying that the Sun and Moon anime is perfect? No. However, if given a choice between watching Best Wishes or Sun and Moon, I'd pick the latter. So I have added more to the episode three outline. This is it: (http://pastebin.com/9xZMbTz2).
I'm trying to picture how this battle will play out. I want Emily to be able to use the Houndour she caught in episode two but I don't want to have a "Pikachu Loses to Level 5 Snivy" type situation to do it. Here's what I might do: So Morty sends out Gastly first. When its HP is in the red zone, Morty will tell it to use either Hypnosis or Night Shade. However, Eddy will dodge it successfully. Thinking on his feet, Morty tells Gastly to use Curse. A nail appears and strikes through Gastly, making it faint. When he sends out Misdreavus, skulls with purple aura around them will fly out of Eddy's wool and in turn, reduce his HP. This happens as he is battling the Pokemon until Emily calls him back and uses a Potion on him. At first, it seems to work and Eddy is able to dodge an incoming Shadow Ball. When he lands on the ground however, the skulks fly out again and the HP goes down. Emily tells him to use Thundershock but before he can do so, more skulls fly out and he is hit by a powerful Psywave, knocking him out. How does that sound? Heeere's Hailey! Wanna Talk? 02:18, February 6, 2017 (UTC)

So today on Wonder Trade, I got a Snivy and a shiny level 100 Golbat with Pokerus. If that's not amazing luck then I don't know what is!
I'm not sure if they'll actually bring back Litten and Stoutland. There's a good chance that it might happen given how Stoutland is a Ride Pokemon in the games but that's not guarenteeing that they'll show them in the anime again. Speaking of Ride Pokemon, that's one of the things I strongly praise about the game. I like how they function like TM's (i.e Tauros is smilar to Rock Smash, Lapras/Sharpedo are similar to Surf, Charizard is similar to Fly, etc) without being forced to strap moves on your Pokemon that, to be honest, weren't all that great (save for Surf and Fly). If I were to make a sucessor to the Pokemon Ride system, I'd say make the HM's items. Here's what I mean:
HM01 (Cut): Axe
HM02 (Fly): Emolga Suit
HM03 (Surf): Surfboard
HM04 (Strength): Machoke Suit
HM05 (Flash): Military Grade Lanturn or Flashlight
HM06 (Rock Smash): Pickaxe
HM07 (Waterfall): Rocket Barrel
HM08 (Dive): Scuba Suit
I took some inspiration from Pokemon Origins when it came to the whole "built-in Pokeball drawer" thing. Not only that but, one of the most intriguing things about the Pokemon Origins special was how a gym leader uses different types of Pokemon depending on how many badges the challenger has. I really like this idea because it gives the challenger enough of a challenge but not to a point where one side is overpowered. Another idea I had for episode three was that Morty would have a limited ability to read minds. Here are the strengths and weaknesses with this ability:
1. Can read the minds of children.
2. Can sense the emotions of people's thoughts.
1. The mind reading ability drains a bit of his energy every time he reads a mind.
2. Cannot clearly read adult's minds as they seem rather fuzzy to him.
I'm not sure how well I can implement this into the episode without pulling an info-dump about it on the reader.
Reply to "2B a Grass Master" Message
Oh damn it! How could I forget about the Machamp?! I like how the player character looks up at the Machamp as if they were the sexiest thing they ever saw.... or something. Now that I think about it, a few ride Pokemon have been featured in the Sun and Moon anime so far such as Lapras, Sharpedo, Tauros, and Charizard. So having Stouland as a ride Pokemon in the anime could happen in the near future tough like I said before, I'm not guarenteeing anything here.
So Dr. Frank gave me some feedback on the latest version of my Cape Cod pasta and I thought it was pretty good. There are some things about the story I never noticed until he pointed them out such as overuse of the word "had". I might try to either cut out some unesessary usage of the word or replace some of the hads with synonyms.
"You also had Lt. Surge and his Raichu beating up on Rattata and Caterpie." Honestly, I'm not sure who's to blame here. Lt. Surge and Raichu for beating up Rattata and Caterpie or people using the Pokemon in a fight with Lt. Surge.
Yeah, exciting way to start the day!
I actually woke up today to the sound of my phone's emergency broadcast alarm. There were several tornados around the southeast part of the state. New Orleans East got hit really bad, luckily though my area of the city was largely untouched, just a lot of rain and wind, no damage.

What about Super Human as the title? Super Human - he's got superpowers, but he's incredibly human and often falls short. He tries really hard and that's what puts him above the average human, thus making him a super human - If you don't like that one then I'd say that Superhuman is my favorite of the bunch since it's pretty much the exact same title as what I suggested XD Buckle up!

Holy crap! I didn't know the word "had" was in the perfect past tense category. Heck, I didn't even know there were different types of past tenses. Well, I guess you learn something new everyday! I was also not aware of the Officer and a Gentleman movie.
When I think of Lilly from Pokemon Sun and Moon, I think of the Nebby memes. What's a Nebby meme? This: (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/get-in-the-bag-nebby) Speaking of Tauros, as a kid, I always wondered where Ash got his Tauros from. When I looked into it years later, he got them in an episode that was banned in the U.S for featuring guns. I'm surprised they didn't replace the guns with something silly like a hot dog or hell just painted the tips of the guns orange in a dubbed version.
So yesterday, I got both a Rilou and a Charmander on Wonder Trade. It took me hours to get those mons but when I got them, I was excited! I also traded a Kadabra for a Machoke which evolved into Machamp when it arrived. Speaking of Kadabra, there was once a guy named Uri Geller who claimed Kadabra was a parody of him. Other than the psychic powers thing, I see no other connection between him and Kadabra. That's like me saying, "Um... Sirs and madams of Game Freak, this Mareep character is clearly lampooning me. This not only ruffles my ridges, but it also gets me triggered!"
Reply to "Gotta Trigger 'Em All! Pokemanz! (1)" Message
Lol! I would love to see the headline "Trump Sues Nintendo Over Mongoose Pokemon Lookalike: America Now a Laughing Stock!" I mean, if you're getting triggered over a Pokemon even remotely similar you, maybe you should go to the corner and think about your life choices.
To me, the ability to bend a spoon, read a person's mind, and whatnot sounds really cool. However, just because it sounds cool, doesn't mean it exists in real life. Case in point, Charizard. Yeah it's a dragon that breathes fire but that doesn't mean you're going to find a Charizard in the real world. Not only that, but if psychic powers were real, I think you'd see the headline, "Psychic Wins Lottery!" a lot more often. "What about twin telepathy?" I hear someone in the background say. Well, from what I've seen, there doesn't seem to be a lot of scientific evidence to back it up. Instead, the evidence is mostly anecdotal.
Speaking of Pokemon controversies, there's also Lenora in the anime. So in the games, Lenora is often seen wearing an apron or smock of some kind. My theory as to why she does this is because in the games, she is not only a gym leader but an archaeologist as well. One of the things an archeologist does is excavate which means that they're down the dirt and digging stuff up and when you're in contact with dirt, you get dirty. So my theory is that Lenora wears the aspron/smock to keep her clothes from getting dirty when excavating. The apron/smock also has pockets to possibly hold tools and/or small artifacts. I'm not sure what she does in the anime but in the English dub, they decided to have her not wear the apron/smock in fear that she'd resemble a mammy archetype. While it seems a bit silly, I can kind of understand where they're coming from.
So when I first played Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, I thought Fantina the gym leader was a guy with a really weird fashion sense. Then I found out they were a girl who has a French accent (in various versions of the game save for the French and Japanese versions). This leads me to believe that Fantina was from Kalos, a place that got the ball rolling on the whole "you can change your clothes" feature.

Reply to "Detective Trump" Message
You know, this whole "Gumshoos looks like Trump!" thing is very odd to me. On the one hand, I kind of see where people are coming from when they say Gumshoos looks like Trump. On the other hand, that's pretty much all they really have in common. If people are going to compare Trump to a Pokemon, then I think Mr. Mime might be a better choice. Think about it. Mr. Mime is generally disliked, has silly hair, and like to create walls. The jokes pratically write themselves!
Before I forget, I uploaded my new Haunting Hour review today! Now it is a little shorter than I'd like but it's just one of those episodes that I can't really talk about without analysing it scene by scene. Don't worry. The next episode I'll review doesn't seem to be like this. Yay!
Regarding hypnosis, Penn and Teller: Bullshit did an episode on hypnosis and have touched upon regression hypnosis in other episodes like their alien abductions episode. In their hypnosis episode, they brought up this military program that was designed to hypnotize people to pull the trigger on Castro (spoilers: the program was not very effective). Not only that, but they also mentioned that when people are regressed, especially if they are regressed to their childhoods, the subject is simply "play-acting". For example, the language they use is still adult language but with "baby" pasted over it if that makes sense. Don't get me wrong. I like using hypnosis, especially the hypnosis videos made by UltraHypnosis, but I see them as more recreational than theraputic.

You know, it's one thing to pretend you were a Japanese princess in a past life, but pretending to be someone who went though the Holocaust is really pushing it. I mean, really? That's the best past life you could come up with?
So I'm currently looking around the internet from some scrapped R.L Stine works to get me in the mood to keep working on my Cape Cod pasta. Recently, my interests have been focused on the Johto Quest series and story outlines like the one for Sunny Hill Farms. I already read about Goosebumps Gold but from what I understand, this guy has a massive bibliography so there's gotta be more than just one scrapped or lost project amongst his work.
When I was a kid we had a great restaurant down here called Rax Roastbeef. I looked them up recently and found out that they are only functioning in the Ohio/Kentucky area. I was just writing to see if you have one near you and if it's still good?

Just dropping a line to tell you I recently uploaded a story with a rather nasty title and, although I know you're easy-going about these things, I wanted to apologize as well as warn you because I respect your desire to avoid certain things. I think you know I'm not nearly as insane as I appear, but I am very open-minded when it comes to writing and the title simply picked itself, just as the story wrote itself. This was probably all unnecessary, but I often do pointless things. Hope all is well.
Warning: If you do decide to read it, grab the fluffiest plush animal you can find, a warm blanket and the number of a good psychiatrist.
~checks Jay's user page with a healthy sense of dread~ Ohhh... Well, sure enough, that title will let you know if you want to read it or not! Thank you for the heads-up on that one! That was a cool thing to do, and I appreciate the warning from both of you. I'm going to avoid this one, but just remember, only a clown can turn a frown upside-down (This was a reference to a segment on the 1990s Nickelodeon show Roundhouse. I tried to find the clip on YouTube, but instead I found creepy clown sighting videos. Dang it, pranksters...). Raidra (talk) 01:10, February 13, 2017 (UTC)

To add to your list of ridiculous past lives, has anyone ever claimed to be Laurence Olivier? You know, that guy from that Hamlet movie that was seen in Last Action Hero that the protagonist was watching in class? Also, has anyone ever claimed to be Christopher Lee in a past life? Speaking of Lee, here's his awesome reading of The Tell Tale Heart: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeZrRENgXmY)
So I did some work on my Cape Cod pasta last night. I've corrected some of the errors that Frank mentioned. The ones he specifically quoted involved me putting a period where a comma should be. I also started cutting down on the use of the word "had". I think what I might do is remove the word "had" in places where it doesn't seem necessary. That's the best option I got next to learning about different past tenses.
Besides Goosebumps Gold, I haven't had much luck in finding scrapped or lost R.L Stine related works. I guess he's just one of those authors that's very adamant to scrap or lose something. Either that or no one has discovered any more works like that. I guess my next best option is to read some Goosebumps books and review the next Haunting Hour episode. Speaking of the Haunting Hour, I decided to end chapter 15 at the part where the woman says yes and have chapter 16 begin with Kristy trying to find her mother.
This is what I have for the beginning of the sixteenth chapter: (The two parted ways as Kristy just sat there smiling, staring at her newly acquired yen. She quietly slipped the cash into her pocket and walked away from the bed. As she was walking away, she looked around and noticed that her mother was nowhere in sight. She walked up and down a few aisles as her head darted from side to side. As she walked down more aisles, she slowly increased her walking speed and held her breath for at least several seconds before letting out a huge sigh.)
Latest version of the Johto Quest Episode 3 outline is here: (http://pastebin.com/CQRajYS2)

Awww man, I am super jealous that you still have an Uncle Alligator cup. When I was a kid we actually had a Rax in New Orleans really close to my apartment, so my mom would take me there sometimes. I had a ton of the alligator cups, but sadly, time has caused them to be lost.
I looked up their Ohio locations and there are 3 Rax located in the state:
Circleville, OH, West Union OH and Bellefontaine OH. Not sure if any of those areas are near you or not. Anyway, thanks for joining me on my stroll down memory lane!
Re: Currying favor
[That terrible moment when you forget that Raidra posted on your talk page like two weeks ago and you end up not responding like a total @#$%&?! poopyhead!]
Yup, it's true, Tim Curry was the puppet-fighting, showtune-singing pirate captain in Muppet Island. And you may think that Curry's fling with Miss Piggy is noteworthy, but have you seen Tim and... Him? Now there's an inappropriate man/puppet relationship!
- I'm not sure how I'd react if I got to converse with a miniaturized puppet version of myself, but I think I'd have that same exact poopy-eating grin Tim's wearing there.
- If someone was thinking, then Tim Jr. is probably being kept in storage somewhere, being prepared for his spot in the inevitable Tim Curry Residential Library. One can hope.

Last night, I got a Tyrunt and Ralts through Wonder Trade! Though, I had to sit through a bunch of dud trades to get them. These include (Trade X Pokemon and get a Wingull, Pikipek, or Yungoos).
Good news! The outline for episode three of Pokemon: Johto Quest is almost finished. However, I'm having trouble with coming up with the narrator's ending dialogue. I came up with this: (With her first badge earned, I'd say that Emily is certainly moving up in the world! However, this is just one step in her long, eventful journey. What else will happen to Emily and Eddy? Find out next time on Pokemon: Johto Quest!)
It's okay but I feel like I could do better. Here's the latest version of the outline to help you put: (http://pastebin.com/U5i6LUK5) I'm going to look at transcripts of Pokemon episodes to get some inspiration. I'm going to start with the Indigo League because they have some really famous episodes like I Choose You and whatnot.
As for that Shakesphere story, I actually saw that on an episode of Mysteries at The Museum. I'm not sure why there aren't too many scrapped works of Shakesphere. I think it might be due to two things. One, Shakesphere's works were written during a time where there weren't as many ways to preserve content like putting them on flash drives or uploading them to a storage cloud. Two, he was such a good artist, he never needed to scrap anything (highly unlikely but who knows).
Hoaxes.org? Never heard of it before. Seems rather interesting. It's kind of the Snopes.com but has a bit of a simpler design.
RE: Disturbing Films that are Old
Just recently got around to watching that video you sent me concerning disturbing films, and, to my absolute horror, I've not seen quite a few of them.
As a side note, "A Dog From Andalusia," or, "Un Chien Andalou," was my favorite film out of those mentioned that I've seen. It's so wonderfully strange that I can't help but love it.

Speaking of badges, you know the episode where Ash gets the Boulder Badge? Well, we all know the infamous scene where the sprinklers are triggered, allowing Pikachu's Thundershock to do some serious damage to Onix. However, there is one part of the episode that's just as bizzare. This is what I'm talking about: (http://m.imgur.com/6Aq9ot5) I know it only appears for a few seconds but, what the hell is going on in this scene? Did he get possessed by Ho-Oh for a bit? Why does no one talking about this scene in the episode?
I already started working on the episode! I'm at the part where Emily interacts with the Snorlax who turns out to be a guy in a suit. I think I want the sduit to be some sort of back up suit since the original suit (A red Gyarados costume) got damaged by Grape Juice which is notorious for being hard to remove once it's on something.
"...Who had a number of first edition plays, including some of the works of Shakespeare. His maid used most of them as pie bottoms (I assume this is like an early, homemade version of the pie tin) and to light a cooking fire..." I'm not sure what time period this happened in. If it happened during the time before Shakesphere was cool, I might understand. If not, then that's a hell of a frustrating thing to have happen. Then again, maybe the made was not aware of their value, which does happen from time to time. Like maybe you find something in a Goodwill or antique store and you're all like "Meh" towards that item, only to find out later it was super rare or valuable.
So in my Pokemon Sun game, I traded a Bagon for an Ampharos and bred it to get not one but two Mareep. Best part of it all? Didn't even gave to buy another game to transfer the Ampharos.
Reply to "Shiny Mareep" Message
So I worked a bit on my plot outline for the Sunny Hill Farms pasta today. If you haven't saved the link to the outline, here it is: (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pXUJ5XymCEICUFbPXYizAdLP71gJciNsKQN0aZOzNOY/edit?usp=drivesdk)
Whether it's a shiny or a regular one, I still love Mareep all the same. Funny thing. I actually got two Mareep on Sun Version and I just evolved one of them into a Flaaffy. I also named this on Eddy. The other one is named Mary and she is fresh out if the egg.
I also went and eliminated more hads from the Haunting Hour pasta. There are now 105 occurrences of the word "had" as opposed to 118 occurrences when I first put the story into a word counter and searched for the word. I'll comb through it again and look for more unnecessary hads.
Speaking of collectors, if that guy lived in modern times and collected Pokemon cards, he or his maid would probably use the rarer cards (such as Base Set Charizard, Pre-release Raichu, and the Illustrator card) for things like flipping cheeseburgers, cleaning hard to reach places, a replacement napkin, and the list goes on. If you haven't noticed, the things I listed are similar to what was seen in a Spongebob episode where Patrick is tasked with looking after an incredibly rare MermaidMan and Barnacleboy trading card. Spoilers, he doesn't do a great job.
In episode three, I'm going to throw in more comedy scenes like Jenny being forced to ditch her bike to cross the waterways and giving it the salute (I mean she can't just swim with it. It would be too heavy and drag her down to the bottom) and hordes of Zubats being drawn to Emily and Eddy as soon as they take one step in Mt. Mortar.
Re: The Book of Tim
Yes, the puppet and the plaque together, along with the denim jacket he wore on Roseanne. All so perfect...
Thanks for your understanding words here and on my blog. It's better for me to be on the wiki rather than off it, I tell you that. And congratulations on getting your own showcase blog, that must feel pretty cool. I think that's actually kind of an interesting blog, as it focused more on you the writer as opposed to your pastas. So, a little more than just "Raidra doesn't suck", if you ask me.
- So in response to your mentioning Mr. Sizemore's voice work, I looked through a list of Curry's vocal performances in television shows, and I noticed something that you may find interesting. I found out that he voiced a couple characters in a direct-to-video animated Bible anthology series, "The Greatest Adventure: Stories From the Bible". Who were those two characters he voiced? None other than Satan as the Serpent and Judas Iscariot. Now I know his most famous roles were as villainous characters, but damn. Also, his role as the serpent just gave me a new favorite quote by him:
- "Of course you will not Diiiiiieeeeeee, SSSSSSSSSSSSSS!"
- Man, the responses to that psychotic blog post are absolutely hilarious, I wish I was there for that. I especially love Empyreal's, Shadow's, and your breakdowns of the OP in particular. Pure comedic gold right there. I just can't wrap my head around these people who think they have the magic trick(s) to fixing this "dying" or "terrible" wiki. Thank goodness for ballbusters like Derpy who can parody such a cringey thing and get a bunch of users joking around.

- Yeah, I thought you'd get a kick out of those videos. For a little direct-to-DVD thing, Tim certainly puts his work in. As for the Indian-sounding guy/kid, I believe he's a sort of sidekick in a group of kids who travel back in time to see Bible stories for themselves or something. The guy introducing Judas is the narrator who tells the stories to them. Something like that. I really like your idea for that sound bite, though. I wish I had it on my iPod so whenever someone did something that I didn't like, I could blast:
- "OOH I DON'T LIKE THAT GUUYY!!"
- I know, it was all so excellent! Yeah, I agree, there'll probably be another pile-on at some point in the future. And I like that saying about the bus, I might have to take that for myself.

So I'm almost done writing this short story I came up with in like five minutes. It's called The White Wolf of Rhode Island and it's structured like an article you'd see in a magazine like Weird N.J. If you don't know what that is, here's their website. James Rolfe also made a video about it if you're interested. However, coming up with the ending is really hard. I think this is because I can't find a good way to end the article. If you want to look at the article, here's a link to it.
So I own a talking Pikachu toy from the late 1990's and it's now worth about two hundred dollars (that's including the box and mine didn't come in a box). My mom got it for me when I was little so it holds a lot of sentimental value. If somebody broke that toy, I'd cry for like twelve hours straight not only because of its sentimental value but because replacing it would be very expensive.
"You know something's wrong on a farm when the cows have the thousand-yard stare." Where did the phrase "Thosand Yard Stare" come from? Like why a thousand? And why a yard? And why is America still using Imperial Units? So the next task for the protagonist is to take inventory of the produce. But let me ask you something. How does one make checking produce scary? I mean, last time someone tried to make vegetables scary, we got this. And this. Hell, I bet H.P Lovecraft couldn't make vegetables scary!
(H.P Lovecraft sits at his desk trying to come up with a way to make vegetables scary)

"A piece of produce could look normal at first, but then the character would open it and find it's crawling with worms." That's what they get for going organic! Mwhahahahaha! In all seriousness, I could see that working, especially if it's on an organic farm, which are known for not using too many chemicals on their produce. I'm trying to think of other things that could infest produce that are native to farmland. There have been urban legends about spiders infesting cacti and even bananas! (To be honest, I was about to punch my screen when I saw the spider images. Thanks Arachnophobia!)
However, I don't think spiders like the ones seen in the articles I linked would be on farms infesting produce, at least, not at the farm in the pasta. I don't think I made this clear in the outline but the farm in the pasta might be in an area of New England, specifcally the southern end of it. In New England, it's not very warm for most of the year save for the summer months. In fact, it's either mild or freakin cold and I don't think spiders like that. I think worms or maggots would be a more appropriate choice for an infester but there's gotta be other types of bugs out there that are on farms and aren't as overused.
About my Litten, I didn't give it that nickname. I got that Litten through Wonder Trade just like I did with my 10+ Rowlets (I know I have a problem!). I also got my Froakie (and Ampharos) though the Global Trade System, hence the Japanese characters in Froakie's name.
(The thousand-mile stare or the two thousand-yard stare, is "a phrase coined to describe the limp, blank, unfocused gaze of a battle-weary soldier, but the symptom it describes may also be found among victims of other types of trauma. A characteristic of shell shock, the despondent stare reflects dissociation from trauma. The thousand-yard stare is thus often seen in cases of incipient post-traumatic stress disorder. It does not necessarily indicate PTSD, however, nor will it always appear in persons who will later develop PTSD.") Stares at the computer screen, trying to figure out how to respond to that.
When you get to reading the article, here are the questions I may ask: (What did you think of the article? Do you think I should make some changes to it? Also, what do you think would be a good way to end the article?)
Reply to "The Depressing Life and Times of Jon Arbuckle" Message
So I recently finished writing that White Wolf article and it's now on my website! Should I make a blog post on this wiki about it or even submit it to writer's workshop? I mean I just wrote it in less than a week so I don't know if it's "quality work". Funny enough, one of my inspirations for the article was actually an article about this place in New Jersey called Jungle Habitat. Just like the Slater Park Zoo, it was abandoned and some of the animals had escaped.
I've actually heard of Action Park before. Its history is hilarious and macabe at the same time. During the park's run, there were a ton of injuries and deaths. From what I've read, it was one of the first modern theme parks and a lot of the rides were revolutionary at the time, though I get the feeling that the rides weren't tested all that much before the park's opening day. Not only that but the park allowed minors to operate rides and they actually sold alcohol at the park. There's this YouTube series called Abandoned, which is made by BrightSunFilms. This series takes a look at abandoned places, their history, and how they became abandoned. They haven't done an episode on Action Park yet but I think it would be really cool if they took a look at it.
You know that show Full House? It's a very obscure sitcom that ran from the late eighties to the mid nineties. Well, just like there's Garfield Minus Garfield, there's also a YouTube series called Full House Without Michelle. However, they haven't uploaded any new episodes in quite a while. It's amazing how you can take out one character and create a whole new perspective on a series.
So I got stuck on my Haunting Hour pasta again. I'm at the beginning of chapter 16 and I don't know what's going to happen to Kristy next. Here's the beginning of Chapter 16: (The two parted ways as Kristy just sat there smiling, staring at her newly acquired yen. She quietly slipped the cash into her pocket and walked away from the bed. As she was walking away, she looked around and noticed that her mother was nowhere in sight. She walked up and down a few aisles as her head darted from side to side. As she walked down more aisles, she slowly increased her walking speed and held her breath for at least several seconds before letting out a huge sigh.)
I was thinking of having the music and her anxiety build until Kristy bumped into her mother but I don't want to repeat an event that was already seen in an eariler part of the episode.
Reply to "Full House 2: The Wonder Years" Message
Speaking of Fuller House, from what I've read about it on the Full House Reviewed website, it's not a great show though it does improve a few things from the original show and at times seems a bit more adult than the original. Of course, the guy behind Full House reviewed only got through one season before quitting the blog altogether.
So I finally got an idea for how the Haunting Hour pasta can continue. Here's what I got:
(As she wandered through the store, a lightbulb suddenly went off in her head. She reached into her pocket and pulled out her cellphone. She then browsed through her contacts until she found her mother's number. She tapped the green phone icon next to the number and the dial tone started to play a few seconds later. Eventually, Kristy heard a message over the phone. "Hi! This is Janice from NCC! Sorry I'm not able to take your call right now. But if you kindly leave your name and number, I'd be happy to get back to you as soon as possible." Before Kristy could leave a message, she tapped the end option on the call screen as she blankly stared out into space. She slowly slipped the phone back into her pocket and thought to herself, "That's strange. Mom almost never lets it go to voicemail." She gulped and resumed her wandering. As she was wandering, Kristy suddenly felt something heavy slam onto her shoulder. She quickly turned around and screamed. However, when she took a closer look, she soon realised that it was her mother and breathed a sigh of relief. "Looks like someone's a little jumpy." Kristy's mother chuckled.) So Frank said something about adding commentary from the protagonist. Well I had an idea regarding that. So as the story progresses, the protagonist will give less and less commentary on the episode. I feel like this would be a good idea because it's a good way to show how scared the protagonist is getting as the shadow gradually transforms into something recognisable. Heeere's Hailey!

Reply to "The Edgy Bunch" Message
Here's something interesting about the original Full House series. In the first season, there was quite a bit of swearing and talk of sexual stuff and whatnot because the series was originally intended to be more adult oriented. However, they eventually decided to go a more family friendly route and the swearing was cut down significantly. Though there was one episode in the later seasons that had the line, "I look like a lumberjackass."
(There was a 1990 sequel to The Brady Bunch which was a drama focusing on very serious issues (and which still had a laugh track for some reason). Here's the description for one episode- "The Bradys are notified that the Department of Transportation will tear down their house to make room for a new freeway and, in a fight to save their home, they have it moved to a new location. Cindy begins to heavily date her boss. Gene and Mike decide to run for City Councilman." Another episode had Marcia turn to alcohol because she felt neglected.) When I first read this, I thought you were joking. I mean, this sounds like a creepypasta written by an eleven year old who thinks that being as edgy as possible will get his story up on the Creepypasta Wiki. Even now, I still can't believe what I'm reading!
Here's what I'm planning on doing. I'll go back and read the story and I'll insert commentary from the protagonist when I feel like I have something to say about a particular moment. I'll try my best to space out the commentary and add variety to the reactions (i.e one moment the protagonist will give a funny quip and the next moment, they'll be scared). But I can't guarentee that every scene will have a reaction.
So I was looking up scrapped Disney songs and I came across this song called The Land of Sand. The song was originally going to be in Mary Poppins but it was scrapped and reworked into Trust in Me from The Jungle Book. On the one hand, I can kind of see why they did this. The song feels rather hypnotic and seems like a better fit for a villian like Kaa, who has the power to hypnotize people. On the other hand, it's a rather nice tune and I would like to see an extended version of it. Speaking of Mary Poppins, there was a song in the musical adaptation that made it in but was later replaced because it was too frightening for children. The song is called Temper, Temper and it was later replaced by Playing the Game. The Temper Temper song is really creepy but fun at the same time. Of course, I'm a brave adult and not a small child (Sees a spider and screams like a little girl).
- Thanks for the heads-up. I removed the comment. Things are going alright, I've just been busy lately so I haven't been as observant on this site as I should be. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 14:51, February 27, 2017 (UTC)
- Sorry to interfere, but I wanted to note that the guy is pretty fuckin' weird. He made a blog (since deleted) saying that he's back, though I'm pretty sure almost no one here knows who he is, and made a indirect threat to a mean commenter he didn't want to name "for his sake" (as if we couldn't see this blog) and saying "his fans won't be so forgiving".
- Res is a special thing. He's...a paradox. He's what happens when an unstoppable force hits an unmovable object. He's what appears if you say, "The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.". He's what happens when you're feeling bored despite watching JonTron.
- Also, I'm more of a shadow rollback. There's a high amount of salt necessary and I've only received a few pinches.
Reply to "Matilda Poppins" Message
So yesterday, I made a fuck ton of progress on the Sunny Hill Farms plot outline. Let's just say the plot is getting very interesting. I also plan on doing something shocking with the Lorenzo character. I also got some work done on episode three of Pokemon: Johto Quest.
I think there might've been a reason why Temper Temper was initially included in the Mary Poppins musical. You see, the Mary Poppins books were somewhat darker than the Disney film so I'm thinking this song was added in to match the tone of the books.

Yes! Not only that, but in the comments section of the Temper Temper video, I remember seeing a comment that said something along the lines of, "This is where Mary Poppins morphs into Matilda!" and that's how I came up with the title of the last message.
Right now, it's raining and thundering outside where I am so that's putting me in the mood to continue writing the Sunny Hill Farms plot outline. Speaking of that, I forgot to link you to the outline in the last message.
You might have the outline bookmarked already but just in case you don't, here's the link to it:
To be honest, I've never watched It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I don't know much about it other than my brother doesn't like it.
I also forgot to give you the latest version of the third Johto Quest episode. Here's the link: (http://pastebin.com/WRrgaGdG)
Mel Brooks was involved in The Fly remake? Huh... Cool.
Just wanted to check in since I hadn't talked to you for a while. Was curious how you and your mother were doing. Was also wondering if you managed to catch any of that show I brought up last time. I'm now addicted to American Pickers for some reason. Anyway, hope all is well.
What's Happen'en Captain?
Hey, Raidra! Long time no see~ How are things going? I've been busy with stuff so I haven't been on lately. Oh, I started watching Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable the other day, it's great, but Part 2 with Joseph Joestar is still my favorite! How far along is Toonami on the anime (I'm assuming it is still airing)? Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 01:05, March 3, 2017 (UTC)
- I saw that on her page after I replied to you (had to reply to her too) XD I see, I hope the health concerns stop and she stays in good health. Not good at all, he's back in the hospital again. He's been there for a week and they can't definitively answer what the cause is (same symptoms as last time). To be quite frank, I'm very pissed at them. The skin on his foot was pink (pretty much healed) when all this went down and he was admitted, but it's black now. It turns out that wound care is there every other day (3 times a week); his foot is supposed to be cleaned every single day. I went in there one day and it wasn't even wrapped up, just bare. I just wish people cared, it takes me 5 to 10 minutes to clean and wrap his foot, it isn't hard at all.
- That is really awesome. Way more original than the villains owning a casino and getting funding through that, in my opinion. I used to really love drawing floorplans/hideouts back in Middle School when I'd draw stick figures out of boredom. I'd just draw scenes of one trying to navigate through traps and stuff.
- I always hated that. I switched to Cartoon Network at around 7:30 or 8:30 yesterday and saw Dragon Ball Super was playing and I was like, "Isn't this supposed to air later, and for that matter, doesn't Toonami not start until 11 or so now?" Fun fact, I nearly bought Jojo's Bizarre Adventure on DVD because I saw it at my local WalMart and it had the first two seasons (Johnathan and Joseph). I went home and looked into it because I would rather have it on Blu Ray because those things are harder to destroy and it turns out it never got an Americanized Blu Ray release, but anyway, I found out the DVD release is of really terrible quality that could pass as being a bootleg :'( So yeah, I passed on it. Such a shame! Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 05:58, March 6, 2017 (UTC)
My my, some definite highlights there. Thanks very much for sharing! I especially love the little "'scuse me" in the beginning and the way those ladies play with him as he opens that letter in Annie. I personally believe that a human being cannot view Tim Curry's acting and feel an ounce of negativity in them. To repay you for linking to that carnal collection of Curry's classic cinema capers, here's some misspelled/misconstrued church bulletins that I found listed in a joke book about a week ago:
"This being Easter Sunday we will ask Mrs Fisher to come forward and lay an egg at the altar."
"Please place your donation in the envelope along with the deceased person you want remembered."
"The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind and they may be seen in the church basement on Friday afternoon."
"Low Self-Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday 7 to 8:30pm. Please use the back door."
"The Ladies Bible Study will be held Thursday morning at 10. All ladies are invited to lunch in the Fellowship Hall after the B.S. is done."
"Pastor is on vacation. Massages can be given to church secretary."
"Thanks to two special people who picked my wife up after a fall from her bike and broke her pelvis and severely damaged her back."
"Tonight's sermon: What is Hell? Come early and listen to our choir practice."
"Tuesday at 4 p.m. there will be an ice cream social. All ladies giving milk come early."
"Sermon tonight: it will be gin at 8."
"Scouts are saving aluminum cans, bottles and other items to be recycled. Proceeds will be used to cripple children."
"The church will host an evening of fine dining, superb entertainment, and gracious hostility."
"The choir invited any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir."
"Don't let worry kill you off - let the church help."
"The sermon this morning: Jesus Walks On The Water. The sermon tonight: Searching For Jesus."
"Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our church and community."
(Announcing the visit of an African missionary speaker named Bertha Belch to the Calvary Memorial Church, Racine, Wisconsin.) "Come tonight and hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa."

So you mentioned high winds. Well guess what? Today was extremely windy where I was. In fact, it was so windy that I thought my state was going to steal that "The Windy City" monicker from Chicago! I think the winds might've scared my cat too because he was quiet all day long.
I did a bit more work on the Sunny Hill Farms plot outline and episode three of Pokemon Johto Quest (http://pastebin.com/mmrjCguU). I've been trying to get some inspiration to continue writing the Cape Cod pasta but I've been too occupied with the other stories recently.
Speaking of bad or questionable advice, look at what I found: (http://diply.net/terrifying-vintage-parenting-advice?publisher=being#!)
So Caddicarus recently made a two part review on a movie called The Classic Nursery Rhymes Collection and not only was it hilarious, but it also taught me a few things such as how Old McDonald, This is The Way The Ladies Ride, Akin Drum, and Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush don't rhyme despite being called "Nursery Rhymes". Not only that but I also found out Caddy hates Old McDonald and The Twelve Days of Christmas.
Here's a link to Part 1: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boNVtcSyrqQ)
Here's a link to Part 2: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8acnf6tqFCk)
If I were to write a nursery rhyme, I'd write one about a girl who does bad things like riding her bike indoors and scoffing at someone when they call her out of scuffing the floors with her bike.
So sometimes in media, a person will swallow a pill without food or water and every time it happens, it shocks me because for me, I can never take a pill without anything to make it go down easier (I have a fear of choking) so I wonder how they were able to pull it off.
On the brink of extinction
I'll leave this here in case you'd like an update regarding my delightful fanbase.
- Give me a minute to finish up this review and I'll respond to you, please don't antagonize them until I have some time to fully read over everything and get the gist. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 21:19, March 3, 2017 (UTC)
While it would be entertaining for you to take apart everything piece by piece (and it seems like you really have after reading your message), it would also result in a lot of unnecessary drama. Accusing them about lying about their parent's, friend's, boyfriend's, dog's, cat's, mice's, etc. death only tends to trigger a defensive response and I really rather not have to mediate on an internet slap fight (as I'm aware of). No matter how riddled with errors and inconsistencies their story is, sometimes it's best to just walk away from a situation without sinking down to their level. This feels like one of those situations where you end up losing even if you completely go beast mode on them (see any of my hulk out moments).

Behold, my (shitty) attempt at writing a nursery rhyme:
Little Lucy rode her bike straight into Gluttonous Dyke He called out, "I'll get you ya little twit!" And she said, "Try me you big old' shit!" "But enough of that!" Said you and me, along with little Matt
Little Lucy wrote on the hides of various hogs she stole She set them free around the school where they were happy to stroll "But enough of that!" Said you and me, along with little Matt
Little Lucy kicked a goosey straight into the belly The goose did peck and Little Lucy wrung it by its neck She tied a rope around its throat and gloated gleefully "But enough of that!" Said you and me, along with little Matt)
I couldn't fit in the whole "riding a bike indoors" thing but I did manage to fit in a bike related event in there. I think I also made Lucy the biggest troublemaker ever! The rhyme is quite dark, but a lot of nursery rhymes are, aren't they?
Speaking of troublemakers, there was once an incident where a little kid destroyed an entire dollar store (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2891412/Mayhem-Dollar-Store-10-year-old-boy-goes-rampage-destroying-aisles-attacking-customers-dragged-collar.html). I think he might've either been abused or had a mental disorder.
Here's couple of videos about children misbehaving:
Video 1: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YA7dXG-Exxk)
Video 2: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jgzv6VVd1qU)
That poor poor pizza! I hope that pizza was covered. If not, (hug) #PizzaProblems
So I recently discovered this book called Struwwelpeter and it's basically a compilation of short stories (complete with illustrations) about children misbehaving. Two stories however really stuck out to me. The first story is called "The Story of Bad Frederick" and its about a boy who is, according to Wikipedia, "a violent boy terrorizes animals and people. Eventually he is bitten by a dog, who goes on to eat the boy's sausage while he is bedridden." This synopsis made me burst out laughing because I thought the dog was eating his (User Banned From Talk Page).
The second story is called "The Story of the Black Boys" and it's about "Nikolas (referred to in some translations as "Agrippa") catches three boys teasing a dark-skinned boy. To teach them a lesson, he dips the three boys in black ink." This story is interesting because the book was published in 1845 and the story has a sort of anti-racism message. In other words, this story was ahead of its time.

So I made a few changes to the Sunny Hill Farms outline, including giving the protagonist as pocket knife and having them use it a couple of times. Not only that but I also had Becky read the chores to the protagonist seeing as how she seems to be the one who's interested in farm work and whatnot. I also had the protagonist be very adamant about finishing their work, as they now only came back to drop off Lorenzo's clothes.
Whenever I see instances of children being flat out spoiled or throwing tantrums, I think of the song Temper Temper and... That's pretty much it. I get really upset at seeing spoiled children. When I watch a video that features a spoiled child, I growl and rub my temples. Oh and if it's a video where the kid complains about an item they didn't want, I'll say, "Hey kid. Don't want it? Throw it to me!"
I have seen a few episodes of Garfield and Friends when I was a kid but I don't recall seeing that particular episode, though it does sound friggin hilarious. If you know the name of it, feel free to tell me.
For the Cape Cod pasta, What I think I want to happen next is that Kristy will playfully deny being jumpy and her mom will ask her if she found anything and then cut to the next scene. However, I need to work up the motivation to work on the story.
In a new part of Sunny Hill Farms, I added the following part:
(51. Roy says to the protagonist, “Are you hanging in there, kid?” The protagonist looks at Roy and stares at him in silence. Roy notices this and calls them out on it. The protagonist snaps back to reality and responds with, “Sorry Roy. It’s just been a hell of a day for me.” Roy chuckles a bit and says, “You know, kid. Before I met Becky, I wasn't much of a farmer either and that hasn't really changed much over the years. In fact, I don't particularly care for the work Becky makes Lorenzo and I do.”
52. The protagonist asks why he stays with her. Roy says, “Don't mean to be rude but the answer to that is a bit too personal for me to share with you.”)
So when Roy says that the answer is too personal, I'm not sure how the protagonist should react. I have three possible reactions planned out. One, the protagonist could be suspicious but calmly say, "It's okay, Roy. You can tell me." Two, I could have the protagonist respect Roy's wishes and talk about something else. Three, the protagonist could space out when Roy gives his answer.
Redundancy against the foolish
I appreciate the effort of messaging my fanbase, but something tells me she may simply ignore you and go on with her brain-fried ideology. She may even go one step further and call you an 'internalized misogynist'.
That's a good way to go about it. I wonder if I'll ever have my own personal saltmine, like Emps...a man can dream. On the theme of creepy episodes, have you seen this?
- Heh, I wouldn't worry 'bout it. Adult Swim isn't known for screwing up.
Reply to "Saturday Morning Fun Pit: Now With Garfield" Message
With the Sunny Hill Farms outline, I decided to go with you suggestion and combine the first and second option. I also added another part to the outline. Here's what I got:
(52. The protagonist asks why he stays with her. Roy says, “Don't mean to be rude but the answer to that is a bit too personal for me to share with you.” The protagonist says, “It’s okay, Roy. You can tell me.” However, Roy still refuses to talk about it and tries to move onto another subject. However, they can't really think of anything else to talk about and as a result, Roy and the protagonist sit there in silence for about thirty minutes.
53. After thirty minutes pass, the vet comes out with Zack who is all patched up but still startled from the attack. The vet says that they had to cut the shirt up to get it off quicker and asks the protagonist if they want it back, to which the protagonist refuses.
54. After this point, they load Zack onto the truck and the protagonist asks Roy if he has any spare shirts in there. Roy says no but he tells the protagonist that there is a second hand store that's just up the road from the vet. He says that he'd be happy to bring the protagonist there and they accept.)
"By the way, did you name Roy after the rooster in U.S.Acres?" Actually no. In fact, I got the name from Roy Disney. I haven't heard of U.S Acres until now. What is that anyway?
"You know what else bugs me? Bugs me a lot? Parents letting their brats bang on the glass at zoos, pet stores, etc. despite there being numerous signs not to. They'll get what's coming to them someday..." Yes! The children will be taken and put into enclosed spaces where they will endure an army of intelligent woodpeckers pecking at the glass of their enclosures! Oh um... Sorry. My mind went to dark places there.

I'm not sure how good my last attempt at writing a nursery rhyme went so I'll have to really think about writing another one.
"They need to have some spare clothes at Sunny Hills since these incidents seem to happen so often. Then again, could that be why Becky wanted to get into farming? The chance of hired hands needing to take off their clothes? Hmm... " Considering how Becky treats the main protagonist, that doesn't sound too farfetched. Maybe when the protagonist gets back to the farm, there could be a scene where she says, "Hi there, sweetheart!" and hugs them and tries to kiss them.
You mean I've been spelling "Just Desserts!" wrong this whole time?! Though that does beg the question. Where did the phrase come from and why would you put a karma-deprived person in a desert? Why not a tundra or a forest or tub of molten lava? It just seems too random to me.
I have this idea for a story in my head. I don't want to flesh it out more just yet but I do want to write it down so I don't forget it. (So the story is about a person who goes to one of those stores that sells Wiccan or Witchcraft supplies to search for a gift for their girlfriend's birthday, which impies that the girlfriend is into this stuff. They browse through the wares until they come across a silver necklace with Pentacle (not a cross between a tentacle and a penis) on the end of it. They think it's a great looking gift and decide to get it. However, when they see the price tag, they think to themselves "All that for one necklace?" This forces them into a dilema. On the one hand, they really like the item and think their girlfriend would really like it. On the other hand, they don't want to spend a lot money. They eventually make their decision and hide behind a shelf so that the shopkeep doesn't see them. They open their jacket slightly, put the necklace on, and zip the jacket up just enough so that the necklace won't be seen.
They leave the store and start walking back home. All of a sudden, the shopkeeper runs after them and the protagonist, thinking the shopkeep knows about the stolen item, tries to sprint away as fast as they can. However, they eventually run into a lightpole and fall to the ground. The shopkeep soon discovers them and rushes to their aid. The shopkeep asks them if they're okay. However, the protagonist just moans in pain and thus, the shopkeep picks them up and carries them back to the shop. On the way there, the protagonist blacks out. When they wake up, they find themselves laying in a bed with the shopkeep by their side. The protagonist notices that their jacket is missing and tries to look for it. However, they can't seem to find it and once they realizes this, the shopkeep asks them if they're looking for something, which makes them jump and scream.
The shopkeep apologizes for scaring them and tells them to relax, as they say it will make their pain go away faster. Once the protagonist lays down, the shopkeep notices something shiny around their neck and goes to examine it. The shopkeep quietly gasps and takes the necklace off. Once they do so, the protagonist asks why they were running after them. The shopkeep says that they were going to give them back the wallet that they left behind. The protagonist says, "Really?" to which the shopkeep says no. The protagonist says that isn't their wallet and the shopkeep says, "And this isn't your necklace" while holding up the necklace. The protagonist says it's their necklace and that it was under their jacket the whole time, which is why the shopkeep may not have noticed it. The shopkeep says that a necklace just like the one they were holding went missing at the time the protagonist was in the store. At this point, the protagonist looks at the clock on the wall and claims that they have to be somewhere in five minutes and tries to flee. However, the shopkeep grabs their arm and giggles, "No you don't." The shopkeep then whispers into the protagonist's ear and says with a big grin on their face, "You're with me now.")

"I don't know everything, but I am well-read enough to know that a pentacle is not what you assumed I might assume. ;-) So is that the whole story or just part of it?" No, that's just like a little proof of concept sort of thing. When I finish writing some of my other stories, then I'll consider working on it some more. Good news, I posted my my story on Writer's Workshop. Now I just need to wait for feedback. Hopefully, this story should be better since it's not based off of an overdone topic like Pokemon.

Speaking of notifications, I haven't gotten any responses to my post about my story in Writer's Workshop yet. Is there something I have to do to get reviews or do I just have to wait a bit longer?
