There is always creepypasta.

I <3 this (found on creepypasta.net, where else)

All I Need to Know About Survival I Learned From Creepypasta

1. Mirrors and darkness don’t mix.

2. Actually mirrors are a general “NO”, in creepypasta world, there is nothing more sinister.

3. There is zero chance of survival if you look the thing that no one else can see or answer it’s question incorrectly.

4. If you are alone at night in a creepy mental institution,take some time to consider what the fuck are you doing there, then, if it is appropriate to do so, leave.

5. Avoid going to places where everyone else who went there never came back or died inexplicably.

6. If someone stops your vehicle at night and asks to come with you, it would probably be in your best interests to politely decline.

7. Killing is the last method of survival, use it sparingly but without fear.

8. WHO WAS PHONE is always a good thing to ponder. Also who the hell answers a phone while kissing a dead
persons sexy daughter. A douche is who.

9. Get a simple .38 revolver. Load it with 2 silver bullets. If you really feel there is no chance to come alive out of a situation, take one shot at whatever is threatening you. If this doesn’t work, you still have the last shot to become an hero with.

10. Area 51 is simply too well guarded to let you get in. Or to let any alien out.

11. When going to a hotel, try to steer clear of unauthorized areas. If you couldn’t resist but you saw a red thing, take some time to consider the price range and hotel standard on your next visit. Have you ever stayed at a haunted Hilton?

12. When booking your hotel stay, Trip Adviser can be an invaluable tool in deeming whether your choice is the scene of a multiple murder/full of dead people/built at the mouth of hell. Local newspapers can also be helpful.

13. Invoking demons, speaking weird languages and performing rituals of any kind is considered dangerous. Refrain from doing that, especially around Abandoned Warehouses, Churches, Psychiatric Institutions, Forests and your house in front of a mirror at night. (Epic lulz!)

14. When going to a new area, environmental understanding is a key to survival. Ask around for cursed places, legends, dangers and other details. Listen to the local peoples’ advice, and don’t be afraid to ask if you’re unsure of which attacks/disappearances are paranormal and which aren’t.

15. Always have a Bible next to your bed. Provides average reading material, proof of beliefs and a really heavy object to throw at enemies.

16. Don’t count on Holy Water. Get a sturdy vial of Sulfuric Acid and let a priest Consecrate it.

17. Japanese priests cleanse rooms by waving katana swords around. Their ritual is 100% effective on corporeal forms.

18. If you find 666 messages on your phone, mailbox, email, etc consider changing the said service provider. Also don’t bother listening /reading the messages. It’s spam. Extra dimensional, possibly, but spam nevertheless.

19. Old pharmaceutical companies cant help you. Unless you specifically need “Blood Of The Innocent”, ”Snake Oil”, and “Radioactive Syrup”. Which is never.

20. If you need to sign it in blood, you do not need to sign it. All mainstream governing bodies will accept contracts signed in ink, bear this in mind if offered deals that seem too good to be true.

21. Lighthouses are dangerous. Avoid them at all costs. If you work at a Lighthouse consider a career in Insurance Sales, or Veterinary Care.

22. There is simply no reason to listen to music that causes suicidal tendencies, or to watch films that have had strange/disastrous consequences..

23. If you like to plan ahead and have some money, buy your auntie and uncle a house in Bel-Air. Nothing can harm you there no matter how scared your mother is.

24. Secret secluded untouched places in old buildings are left untouched for a reason. Pioneers never say “die” but in fact they do have an unusually high mortality rate.

25. Before you start swimming in the ice-cold waters of a murky lake at the center of a dark forest at midnight, ask yourself, do you really want to travel to an ancient and terrifying city? If the answer is “no,” then stay at home instead, and watch whatever quality programming is available on Cinemax.

26. On your 33rd birthday try celebrating in a well lit house with the company of others.

27. Refrain from using the One True Name for anything, there is probably a reason people gave it a nick.

28. Watching TV static for long periods may be hazardous to your health, try satellite TV to combat this problem.

29. Get a cat. Those furry little hairballs seem to perceive unnatural phenomena better than us, and if desperate, simply throw it at whatever is about to get you.

30. Cemeteries are bad places, especially in foggy conditions and on halloween.

31. Try not to close your eyes, ever. If you must, do so only briefly.

32. If you hear chanting, run until you are out of earshot.

33. If you are too old to play with dolls, you do not need to be anywhere near one of the creepy little fuckers.

34. Legends can offer valuable insight of where not to go camping with friends.

35. When babysitting, ascertain the family’s tastes and preferences, to avoid being killed by poorly selected statues.

36. Even if you are certain that running will not save you, it is always best to try.

I am so bored I'm chatting with an IMbot. I wish I could copypasta it here, because it successfully recreated the 'you remind me of the babe' scene from The Labyrinth.

Here's the most recent conversation (my lines are bolded):

What is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything?
There is no answer.
There has to be an answer.
No. You want the answer to everything, but there is no question.
I question everything.
Ask me a question then.
What color underwear are you wearing?
Black.
Silk or cotton?
Do you like cotton candy?
So you're wearing edible underwear?
No
How disappointing
I'm not a girl.
Then why bother to share your non-gender with me?
I wanted to see if you knew.
Knew what?
You said you knew what Cibai was.
I've never heard it, but if you hum a few bars I an probably play along.
I think it's that way for most guys.

Ugh, Torn

I'm a bit disappointed with dragcave. I don't know exactly what is going on, because these kinds of things are not usually divulged to the person who reports them, but...

There are at least two dragons with names involving 'Tarbaby'. I reported them for having racist names. Nothing has been done so far - the two dragons still exist with the names. I do understand that a tarbaby is a trap for Bre'r Rabbit. I also know that a tarbaby is a painful racial slur for black children, because aside from being condescending, it carries the implication that no one wants to touch them, that they are somehow oily or dirty (and dumb, because even Bre'r Rabbit's tarbaby 'jes sat and sat, and didn't say anything', which was how Bre'r Rabbit got stuck in the first place, because the tarbaby was disrespectful & didn't say 'good morning!' back - yeah, I have some familiarity with Bre'r Rabbit... he bears a striking resemblance to a certain Someone I know).

In fact, here they are:



The leetle dragons do bring me a modicum of generally harmless fun, a time waster, a forum decoration or two. I've fiddled with spriting myself, and developed an appreciation for the art form. Without a computerized drawing pad thingy, there is no fucking way I could do it, although dragons are similar enough in design to horses that I can draw dragons from time to time.

Anyway, I'm tempted to quit DC because the poorly-named dragons still exist in their present forms. I just don't know if it would matter to anyone. Obviously DC has enough supporters that my one-person protest would go unnoticed, and I know from experience when people threaten to quit games like this publicly, they get a lot of "can I haz ur stuffs?" responses.

I guess what I'm wondering is if I should just quit, quietly and anonymously, because it's the right thing to do, or if I should post something vocal on the forums, make my opinion known (because, as we all know, internet protests is srs bsns)?

Someone recently joined the Pagan forum I'm on. Seems relatively harmless, if a tad bit eccentric. Very poor grammar & spelling. Seems like they may be from another country. Apparently they wear their robes & cloak in public. Ok, fine, whatever. Other people think he's a troll, which he may very well be, and if revealed as such he will be ridiculed within inches of his e-peen's life. He may just be living in a delusional little fantasy world, in which case we will seriously hurt his itty bitties and leave him with the overall impression that Pagans are bad nasty people.

In a thread about 'dark deities', this person mentioned a few familiar Gods... and the goa'uld. For once, Rob's incessant t.v. watching paid off and I knew right away the pop reference for a goa'uld. It's the bad guys on Stargate: SG-1. Now, granted, I am not omniscient and there may be a historical entity known as a goa'uld. SG-1 did that with the other races, using God names from history for their aliens, which is part of why I was never a big fan of the show. Maybe there's a historical goa'uld reference & it's like the lamishtu, or a were-being of some sort. Maybe it's a malevolent faery. Fucked if I know.

I might have missed that particular word if I'd done what I normally do & skimmed the post, but other people broadcasting their troll-detection alerts made me read a little more carefully. Instead, I hopped right on there and asked, "Who, or what, is this goa'uld of which you speak?"

Yeah, this is what my life has become. Feeding trolls on teh internets. Thinking about taking some travel agent classes over the next year or so, expand my marketability once again. Of course, with expedia.com it's already obsolete, but big corporations still need travel agents to use expedia.com & the ilk.

Edited to add: Someone else stepped in my damn troll-trap. Freaking clueless Buddhist. AAARRRRGGGGHHH!!!

Facade.com's take on the whole sordid thing:

Dear sir or madam,

Like so many others, I pray for the zombie apocalypse.

I have mad skills.

Of course, I'd be playing for the other team.

I really need to get the Hell off the internet tonight. I've been on it all day. Got nothing productive done whatsoever. Basically called in sick to surf the 'Net.

My score:

1) Called someone a condescending ass

2) Got +2 Karma for #1

3) Said "in your face!" to someone - not the condescending ass, though. That would have been cool.

4) Got my mage up 2 levels in WoW. Not that a lvl 52 Mage is anything special - at 50 I got portal to TB, ooohh, ahhh.

5) Got into a yelling fight w/Rob over $$$. Rob had me cancel his WoW account, which was up for renewal today anyway, so he's been watching me play WoW all day.

6) Posted that Mother Teresa should have her Nobel Peace Prize rescinded

7) Got terribly confused by Google's celebration of the invention of the bar code.

Disturbing

I ran across this out there in the big scary internet world...

PsychicKids.com

At first glance, it's kind of cute, in a weird way. Sort of affirming that yes, some kids can see ghosts, their 'imaginary friends' might not be all that imaginary, that it's ok to have 'special powers'.

But on this page, the guy kinda runs off the 'aww, isn't that cute' cliff right into 'Pedophile Town'.

Ah played hooky from wurk today. :)

The stuff ya find on teh internets amazes me...

Definitely NSFW!

I enjoy webcomics. Most of the ones I like the best are WoW-related, like PennyArcade and Ding! (which seems to be on permanent hiatus), but Oglaf has absolutely nothing to do with WoW...

I can't stand the Nigerian bank scammers. I used to be able to just pass it off, delete the e-mail, ignore the IMs... but not anymore. Now I have a mission to fuck with them unmercifully.

I've got a profile on OkCupid, basically there so I can take the quizzes & save my results. I do chit chat with people while I'm goofing off there. I like it because it's not as interactive as facebook and has no expectations for me to do anything worthwhile with my time, like lj.

I used to use tribe.net until I started getting bombarded w/the Nigerian bank scammers. Until a few days ago, the Nigerian bank scammers were leaving OKC alone, or at least they weren't paying attention to me. A couple of days ago I got a generic 'hello' message from someone w/a blank profile that lists them from being from Ontisha, Nigeria. I replied, "So, what kind of kink are you into?"

They messaged me back "My dear, I love ur tattoos". I replied, "Would you like to put a cigarette out on them and lick my charred flesh?"

Now I just get to wait and see. I'm going to start lambasting e-mail scammers with insults about their mothers and various farmyard friends. I wish I could find a site that had basic profanity in Nigerian. Apparently they have a lot of different dialects that make this less straightforward than say, profanity in Russian or Japanese.
