Let us not dwell on details like “have the forum activity really been lower lately” or “maybe it’s just a coincidence that will pass quickly”

I am forced to resolve this the only way I know how; with violence, confusion (mainly my own), loud sulking, social awkwardness and random, possibly misplaced pictures.

*Prepares landmine that shoots Grenades filled with Nunchucks with Shuriken tips and 55 Gallon Drum of Whoop-Ass*

-Chk chk- (that’s the sound of my four machine guns loading)

By now I realize that killing may or may not be the best way to increase population

well, I am not infinite nor did i actually ever claim to be. It is just that after 3500 posts, I have pretty much said everything I think I can offer - at least once and maybe many, many times. i kind of get tired of being 'flamed' by Newbies over and over again - it seems like the same old crap over and over again with just different avatars attached. i will usually give a Newbie a chance - but then i just start ignoring their posts after a while...
I suppose if anyone would start asking me sincere questions or say something thought provoking as it once was, i would be more active. But then I believe that the majority of the forum members would just as soon see me inactive or even disappear - despite my contributions to the community over the past 21 months...

Oh, blob quite that self-loathing: your posts definitely add color to the waste land of analytical thought. However, to say that you have said everything that you can say is probably wrongheaded. Novel issues crop up every day, you just have to look for them.

By killing off a large portion of the population, would this inspire the remaining members to spawn at a higher rate than before, therefore increasing the population exponentially (until overpopulation and lack of sanitary measures lead to plagues and death) ...?

*steps out of the gloom clad in kick ass leather and begins clapping*

Bravo Minuend. Bravo. Though I admit I am a tad bit disappointed. I thought you'd have figured out my plan a little earlier than this. Oh well, that's what I get for overestimating you.

Now, it's just you and me. You knew it would come down to this someday...

*raises arms in a wide arc and grins*

Let the games begin!

Arrogant whelps!
Everyone knows the final battle will be up against the very Mistress of Carnage and Harbinger of the Apocalypse!

*Adaire failed to realize she electrocuted a very realistic Minuend doll*

*The real Minuend lashes out from her hiding in the bushes and clicks the remote control which starts a bullet rain from the four machine guns*

*Takes ten grenades from shoulder bag and attempts to throw them at Cava*

*Is blinded by Cava's daily polished leather outfit, the grenades hit the big maple tree behind Adaire, making it fall on her tesla and it explodes like in the movies*

*In the ruckus, Minuend manages to shoot Cava's arm with her needle gun*

Alice, you passed the IQ test, that means you'll be assigned to the strategic department. Which means you'll use this

*Throws rocket launcher to Alice*

to obliterate any opposition and destroy anything you see fit to ensure our future dominance of the Pistol Star (we have evolved to live there). You'll also have tank privileges. Speaking of which

*Waves arm which reveals an army of tanks with force fields*

Don't think you can outweapon me, Cava!

And no petty teslas of Adaire will take this down!

Pity it slipped your mind Minuend, but I have friends in high places.

*Adaire inputs a command into her phone and beams of red light rain down from the sky atomizing all of Minuend's precious tanks. *

Grenades? Machine Guns? Tanks? The forcefields were a nice touch, but everything else is archaic child's play. Get with the 30th century already. :rolleyes:

Nope. Sorry. I had my entire body replicated through the use of nanotubes years ago. What you see before you is my duplicate.

*scoops up handful of mercury leaking from the crushed Tesla gun and superheats it over the coals of Minuends recent failure. When it starts to boil Cav pours it into a small glass vial and caps it*

Now, if you'll be so kind as to hurry up and die a horrible burning death I can get on with obliterating Minuend here.

*throws the vial down at Adaire's feet where it shatters and covers her in liquid flames and poisonous fumes*

Here Mini Mini Mini! I've got a present for you!

The reasons for using old machinery is threefold:

1. It gives you measly nuclear tolerant cockroaches a chance to actually defeat me, easy win is an unsatisfying win.

2. I prefer seeing my targets get blown to very gory pieces, and we all know the older the weapons the bigger the chunks.

3. When I win and you are dead you will feel most inadequate being beat by such simple tools.

Are you hearing me over your flesh burning?

*Walks dramatically through flames as she has evolved to be immune to such tiny things living on the Pistol Star*

*Also has scary look in her eyes*

*Walks towards Cava while loading her shotgun, her favorite piece of museum weaponry*

I believe you called me, young one. I did not know you were that eager to get your atoms split.

*Looks around*

Where are all the men? Did Cava finish them off already? I was looking foreward to finally finding my true love and have him stuffed and displayed in my living room.

I suggest we lure in the men by appealing to their frail masculinity.

Posts like this are the solution to inactivity.

I browse this forum regularly but because there are few new posts, I have little to respond to.

What is needed, I think, are more new posts created by those who use the forum. I usually only make a new post when I have a problem I need advice on, but a while back I made a funny one just for the fun of it.

Next thing I knew, there were 10 replies to it. People are browsing this forum quite a bit, but we're all silently lurking, instead of making the first move and posting.

Hm...I fear this repetition. Discussion has always been attracting[to me] because of the "growth" and the "process" of information production. It seems tiring to provide an idea you have already endlessly provided.

Also

*Wins easily*

*Stuffs Razare and Words and put them in living room*

Wait, are you supposed to kill them before or after?

If you're tired of something, take a break. I've more or less stopped browsing the religion threads, they have no value to me at this point. What's the point of discussing what you do or do not believe in? We're all going to die and everything we think and believe will be worthless anyways. Point is, you don't need to leave forever, just do something else for while. This was to all you who are weary. /end semi- serious

Well I'm here now and where the feck are all of you?

Logged in, supposedly here, but nay! 'tis all an illusion. Who's online tells me I'm all alone here. No one to kill! No posts to plunder of sense, nothing to derail, defile, defenestrate, de... umm... whatever.

I see you there Oblivious! You're active. Come out and post something! Push me out of a train! Post a link to another anime that will eat my mind for weeks! Impersonate Lelouche and make the forum weak at the knees from the sound of maniacal laughter!

What about muzza? Who the hell's muzza? Shipwrecksilence?

Vegard! Come out and say something charmingly uncouth to our imaginary audience.

Sheesh.

At this rate I'll be forced to start my own threads.

*walks past Adaire without acknowledgement, over to stand right in front of lor*

You're right, I'm screaming.

*stabs lor in the heart with a switchblade, twisting it to ensure she bleeds out*

The sick thing is, you're enjoying it.

*leaving lor to collapse to the floor, Cog continues over to Minuend, attracting the attention of her automated turrets, so he flicks the still warm/wet blade away (distracting their sensors temporarily) and takes one long stride into Minuend's personal space, forcing her to crane her neck back to make eye contact*

Heat signatures don’t work well at close range, as far as your turrets can tell we’re one person with one IFF signature, so by all means switch them to aggressive mode, it’ll give us a little privacy.

*Cog raises his arm but Minuend is quicker, her hand reaches into his jacket first to snatch whatever alternate weapons concealed in there, only there isn’t any, in fact Cog’s wasn’t reaching for his jacket, instead he has reached around and is now holding Minuend tightly against him with one arm, pinning her arm between them. Reflexively Minuend grabs his throat with her other, but isn’t nearly strong enough to effectively choke him, meanwhile Cog’s other hand is holding her chin up as he leans forward, having shaken the initial panic Minuend goes for the combat knife concealed in the small of her back with a murderous intention. Then Cog kisses her and everything stops, the tip of the combat knife draws a drop of blood from his neck, poised to sink fatally deep without a moment’s notice, yet they remain posed in this embrace for a moment… then it’s over, and Cog leans back slowly so as to push the knife back without deepening its wound too much*

Y’know given the context, I can’t help but wonder how far is too far…

I have been overkilled o_o

*Releases Cerberus from the Underworld to feed on the living soulless ones*

*Open the gates and unleashes dead souls*

*Minuend has been kicked from #Underworld by @Hades*

*Shoots cupid arrows into Cog and Lor*

*Cog and Minuend are interrupted by a bright flash of light, turning to see Adaire mumbling to herself and looking over their photo*

'Blackmail... Personal collection, blackmail or personal collection....?'
*after a moment Adaire smiles slightly, tucking the picture in a coat pocket, settling on personal collection. Now adopting a fierce scowl and narrowed eyes, she goes to confront Cog*

You know, that was incredibly rude Cog. Clearly I was hitting on Minuend first! :mad: Although impudent breach in social protocol aside, you really should know better than to kiss someone to whom I've lent my special lip gloss.

*Cog sways a little, before falling to the ground, out cold.*

Adaire turns to Minuend with a twisted smile, 'I think he should awaken taut on the rack as punishment don't you?' :twisteddevil:

'Although I am just dying to know' Adaire said, brushing a stray hair from Minuend face, 'out of Cog and I, who has the better kiss?'

The question would rather be: What would I prefer more; Being rolled over by robot tracks or eaten inside-out by mutated tomatoes.

I see that Cog has already determined my fate to be dissociation by genetic altered grapes.

I hereby rename INTPforum to Minnuendia!

And thus forth the land was filled with robot unicorns that rode the hills elegantly whilst butterflies were being meticulously slain by the odor coming from Alisa's old cave.

Bathe in my glory, measly underlings. Thus thou shall finally feel the pleasure of being ruled by a pure being! A new era has come forth!

Maybe I should've told him the fishies contained tiny bolts and that we're in the process of moving our U-shaped neodymium back up from the basement.

*zwiing*

Ah, back already, ey?

Hold up... how many arms do you have?
Only one hand is required if your remote control is advanced enough!

Some are the unicorns' master, some are their slaves....

'sup, minuend. are you a coffee drinker?
On the contrary! In fact, I'm a well established, highly valued member of the Anti- coffee and -Melkor Club. There we gather every Wednesday to contemplate our sadden fate twisted by gruesome drinks and Melkor's presence! We rue the day our ancestors, weary and ignorant, did not prevent Satan from giving birth to this weakly and seething creature called Melkor!. We shall forever be cursed by such sin.

Also, sup, kiddie?

I approve, but only if the robot unicorns have frickken laser beams on their heads.
It's all in the horn. I've attached blueprints.

Now, now, let us not exaggerate. I think few are personally insulted by you presence. In fact, some even seem to enjoy it! I'm baffled by the illogical structure of your posts, but going from that to unwant you is a bit drastic.
