[07:19] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> But I don't think dipping him in honey would make him more attractive...
[07:19] <flame_SNIPER> To ants.
[07:19] <IrnChef_Jovian> I thought you liked Mamoru-san, Rei-chan
[07:20] <flame_SNIPER> 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
[07:20] <IrnChef_Jovian> did you realize today was Friday the 13th?
[07:21] * [gTV]C'est_la_V misses that TV show
[07:21] <flame_SNIPER> That TV show was ridiculous, it was just a weak attempt at horror
[07:21] <Mizunomics01> Ah, Triskaidekaphobia, how quaint.
[07:22] <IrnChef_Jovian> A.. Ami-chan! Hi!
[07:22] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Triscuit what??
[07:22] * [gTV]C'est_la_V is getting hungry
[07:24] <Mizunomics01> Triskaidekaphobia. An odd psychological problem manifested by certain individuals wherein they exhibit an innate or unnatural fear of the number 13.
[07:24] <flame_SNIPER> Ami-chan do you have something against monosyllables?
[07:25] <Mizunomics01> Yes, for I am not a drooling neanderthal lacking in sufficient mental agility.
[07:25] * flame_SNIPER rolls her eyes
[07:26] <flame_SNIPER> You know, ever since Crystal Tokyo you've been like this
[07:26] <IrnChef_Jovian> Rei-chan don't pick on Ami-chan :P
[07:26] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> kekeke
[07:27] <Mizunomics01> 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
[07:27] <flame_SNIPER> The difference being you eat dictionaries for breakfast?
[07:27] <Mizunomics01> Really, rei-chan, I fail to understand the antagonism.
[07:28] <flame_SNIPER> Because you went insane?
[07:29] <IrnChef_Jovian> Ami-chan is not insane!!
[07:29] <Mizunomics01> "Insane" is such a loose epithet. I prefer the word "driven."
[07:31] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Ami-chan, you used to be so quiet back in the day...
[07:31] <IrnChef_Jovian> Quiet, reserved, shy and cute.... I remember those times...
[07:31] <Mizunomics01> Meh.
[07:32] <Mizunomics01> Modern society likes it when its giants are quiet.
[07:32] <Mizunomics01> "Don't be the nail that sticks out" "Don't make waves"
[07:32] <Mizunomics01> "conform"
[07:33] <Mizunomics01> How many of us HERE were subjected to that kind of pressure?
[07:33] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> <_<
[07:33] <flame_SNIPER> >_>
[07:33] <IrnChef_Jovian> :(
[07:34] <Mizunomics01> Minako-chan, shunned because she didn't take part in group activities due to her time as Sailor V
[07:35] <Mizunomics01> Rei-chan, ostracized for her psychic powers
[07:38] <Mizunomics01> Mako-chan, feared for her strength
[07:39] <Mizunomics01> Myself, simultaneously feared, respected and hated for her intelligence
[07:40] <flame_SNIPER> People are idiots. I learned to ignore their ignorance.
[07:40] <Mizunomics01> I put up with it, I was the typical meek, blushing Japanese woman, accepting my role, doing what everyone wanted
[07:41] <Mizunomics01> Mother was a doctor, so I followed her footsteps as she wished
[07:41] <Mizunomics01> I went to three cram schools at once
[07:41] <Mizunomics01> I got into the best of everything.
[07:41] <Mizunomics01> But then Crystal Tokyo came, and medical science was run by computer.
[07:42] <Mizunomics01> 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
[07:43] <Mizunomics01> It was sickening
[07:43] <Mizunomics01> I had wasted my life studying medical science only to be trumped by the equivalent of C-3P0 and David Blaine
[07:43] <IrnChef_Jovian> David Blaine is cool...
[07:44] <Mizunomics01> The "coolness" of that prestadigitator is hardly the point, Mako-chan.
[07:44] <Mizunomics01> I, with the IQ of 300, had NOTHING to do.
[07:44] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> And as they say, "an Idle Hans is the Devil's Workman"
[07:45] <flame_SNIPER> "They" never said that, you did
[07:45] <Mizunomics01> So of COURSE my formidable intellect, yearning for release, would turn its savage energies elsewhere, to the realm of mechanical science
[07:46] <flame_SNIPER> Yeah, you built the Mercury Mechanized Brigade which was basically 300 40-foot tall gundams with überweapons
[07:46] <IrnChef_Jovian> God those were so cool
[07:47] <flame_SNIPER> Ami-chan was overcompensating for her days of being picked on :P
[07:47] <Mizunomics01> Hah, the words of the lesser in fear of the ascendancy of the genius nerd.
[07:47] <flame_SNIPER> See and you starting talking like THAT.
[07:47] <Mizunomics01> And why not, Rei-chan.
[07:48] <Mizunomics01> Why not.
[07:49] <Mizunomics01> 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
[07:49] <Mizunomics01> Where hentai floats in the streets as a lingering escape valve for the repressed national id
[07:50] <Mizunomics01> After being put through the insane pressure cooker of daily 20th / 21st century Japanese school society
[07:51] <Mizunomics01> 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?
[07:51] <Mizunomics01> 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.
[07:52] <Mizunomics01> I lunch with Sir William of Gates. Richard Branson taps me for Materials science knowledge.
[07:52] <IrnChef_Jovian> I hope that's all he taps ><
[07:52] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Eh, Mako-chan??
[07:52] * flame_SNIPER is away: crap work at the shrine
[07:53] <Mizunomics01> I am feared. I am a force that sets policy, not a passive victim of it.
[07:53] <IrnChef_Jovian> But Fear isn't respect, Ami-chan
[07:54] <Mizunomics01> I do not need "respect".
[07:54] <Mizunomics01> Respect is a platitude.
[07:54] <Mizunomics01> Platitudes get you nothing at the end of life. Many a "respected" person has gone on to die hungry, alone.
[07:55] <Mizunomics01> Japan "respects" the quiet, the meek, the subservient.
[07:55] <Mizunomics01> I was those things. All those things, the reification of them.
[07:55] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Rei--???
[07:55] <Mizunomics01> For the love of good look it up ><
[07:56] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> what does rei-chan have to do with--
[07:56] <Mizunomics01> REIFICATION. The treatment of an analytic or abstract relationship as though it were a concrete entity. ><
[07:56] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> ? ? ?
[07:56] <IrnChef_Jovian> ^_^;;
[07:57] <Mizunomics01> ARRRGH
[07:57] <Mizunomics01> It's like it was back when we were studying for entrance exams ><
[07:57] <Mizunomics01> Hoe can I possibly make you appreciate the subtle nuances of my catharsis when you constantly badger me for definitions ><
[07:58] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> What do cats and badgers have to do with--
[07:58] *** Mizunomics01 [] has quit IRC (GRAHHH)
[07:58] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> AHAHAHAHA
[07:58] <IrnChef_Jovian> ...Minako-chan that was cruel :P
[07:58] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> "Cats and Badgers", I love it XD
[07:59] <IrnChef_Jovian> 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.
[07:59] <IrnChef_Jovian> What about "catharsis"
[08:00] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Obviously the sister of a Cathar, historically an adherent to Catharism, a belief-system which was based on an extremely heretical form of Christianity.
[08:00] <IrnChef_Jovian> .... :O
[08:00] <IrnChef_Jovian> I don't know whether to be impressed at how WRONG that is or at how SMART you are for memorizing that definition
[08:01] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> :P the Cathars were an enemy in a video game I fought called "Hellsing: Iscariot's Revenge"
[08:01] *** [gTV]C'est_la_V [] has left #suburbansenshi (breakfast)
[08:02] <IrnChef_Jovian> Minako-chan scares me somtimes
