> But I don't think dipping him in honey would make him more attractive...
> To ants.
> I thought you liked Mamoru-san, Rei-chan
> There are days I do, and then there I days I want to teach him a lesson for being useless to women
[07:20] * IrnChef_Jovian shudders a bit
> did you realize today was Friday the 13th?
[07:21] * [gTV]C'est_la_V misses that TV show
> That TV show was ridiculous, it was just a weak attempt at horror
> Ah, Triskaidekaphobia, how quaint.
> A.. Ami-chan! Hi!
> Triscuit what??
[07:22] * [gTV]C'est_la_V is getting hungry
> Triskaidekaphobia. An odd psychological problem manifested by certain individuals wherein they exhibit an innate or unnatural fear of the number 13.
> Ami-chan do you have something against monosyllables?
> Yes, for I am not a drooling neanderthal lacking in sufficient mental agility.
[07:25] * flame_SNIPER rolls her eyes
> You know, ever since Crystal Tokyo you've been like this
> Rei-chan don't pick on Ami-chan :P
> It was in Crystal Tokyo, where I first got my hands upon the first sweet, delectable morsels of advanced technology that I realized the difference between myself and the ordinary man
> The difference being you eat dictionaries for breakfast?
> Really, rei-chan, I fail to understand the antagonism.
> Because you went insane?
> Ami-chan is not insane!!
> "Insane" is such a loose epithet. I prefer the word "driven."
> Ami-chan, you used to be so quiet back in the day...
> Quiet, reserved, shy and cute.... I remember those times...
> Modern society likes it when its giants are quiet.
> "Don't be the nail that sticks out" "Don't make waves"
> How many of us HERE were subjected to that kind of pressure?
> Minako-chan, shunned because she didn't take part in group activities due to her time as Sailor V
> Rei-chan, ostracized for her psychic powers
> Mako-chan, feared for her strength
> Myself, simultaneously feared, respected and hated for her intelligence
> People are idiots. I learned to ignore their ignorance.
> I put up with it, I was the typical meek, blushing Japanese woman, accepting my role, doing what everyone wanted
> Mother was a doctor, so I followed her footsteps as she wished
> I went to three cram schools at once
> I got into the best of everything.
> But then Crystal Tokyo came, and medical science was run by computer.
> And injuries could be healed with the application of a magical rock.
[07:42] * [gTV]C'est_la_V remembers you getting pissed off when Usagi-chan would start healing wounds on "Renewal Day" just to hear the happy people cry her name
> It was sickening
> I had wasted my life studying medical science only to be trumped by the equivalent of C-3P0 and David Blaine
> David Blaine is cool...
> The "coolness" of that prestadigitator is hardly the point, Mako-chan.
> I, with the IQ of 300, had NOTHING to do.
> And as they say, "an Idle Hans is the Devil's Workman"
> "They" never said that, you did
> So of COURSE my formidable intellect, yearning for release, would turn its savage energies elsewhere, to the realm of mechanical science
> Yeah, you built the Mercury Mechanized Brigade which was basically 300 40-foot tall gundams with überweapons
> God those were so cool
> Ami-chan was overcompensating for her days of being picked on :P
> Hah, the words of the lesser in fear of the ascendancy of the genius nerd.
> See and you starting talking like THAT.
> And why not, Rei-chan.
> Why not.
> After being picked on, and bent to the will of bureaucrats, parents, salarymen, bullies, and a conformist society that values homogenity above creativity, where the only sparks of brilliant outsidership are locked in the recessses of Akhibara, expressed in obsessive deviancy
> Where hentai floats in the streets as a lingering escape valve for the repressed national id
> After being put through the insane pressure cooker of daily 20th / 21st century Japanese school society
> Why WOULDN'T I talk like that when I found myself finally free and clear, able to give vent to my frustration, to make life spring forth from my hands in the form of super mecha?
> That is why now, no one tells me what to do. Using the remnants of Tomoe Research Labs as a base, I have founded Mizunomics Corporation in the 21st century.
> I lunch with Sir William of Gates. Richard Branson taps me for Materials science knowledge.
> I hope that's all he taps ><
> Eh, Mako-chan??
[07:52] * flame_SNIPER is away: crap work at the shrine
> I am feared. I am a force that sets policy, not a passive victim of it.
> But Fear isn't respect, Ami-chan
> I do not need "respect".
> Respect is a platitude.
> Platitudes get you nothing at the end of life. Many a "respected" person has gone on to die hungry, alone.
> Japan "respects" the quiet, the meek, the subservient.
> I was those things. All those things, the reification of them.
> For the love of good look it up ><
> what does rei-chan have to do with--
> REIFICATION. The treatment of an analytic or abstract relationship as though it were a concrete entity. ><
> It's like it was back when we were studying for entrance exams ><
> Hoe can I possibly make you appreciate the subtle nuances of my catharsis when you constantly badger me for definitions ><
> What do cats and badgers have to do with--
[07:58] *** Mizunomics01 [firstname.lastname@example.org] has quit IRC (GRAHHH)
> ...Minako-chan that was cruel :P
> "Cats and Badgers", I love it XD
> You don't know what she said, do you :P
[07:59] * [gTV]C'est_la_V knows what "badgers" means, baka, is not stupid.
> What about "catharsis"
> Obviously the sister of a Cathar, historically an adherent to Catharism, a belief-system which was based on an extremely heretical form of Christianity.
> .... :O
> I don't know whether to be impressed at how WRONG that is or at how SMART you are for memorizing that definition
> :P the Cathars were an enemy in a video game I fought called "Hellsing: Iscariot's Revenge"
[08:01] *** [gTV]C'est_la_V [GldnGoddess@upperdeck.ginga.tv] has left #suburbansenshi (breakfast)
> Minako-chan scares me somtimes
