Generally, you want to be around animals smaller than you. It reduces the chance of them mistaking you for prey. Also, cleaning up after them is easier. :D

Not really. I have a tortoise and she makes quite a mess. It's pretty amazing.

Then I'm glad that I don't have to clean up after the fluffy turtles. :)

I made it in. How did you know that I'm short or shorter than most of the members?

Rats aren't bad. Maybe spell casting rats. Giant Intelligent friendly (well maybe not so friendly) talking rats are bad. Maybe they can meet up with the GIFTS and eliminate each other.

We can't have Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Rats! That would make them GIFTR and that acronym has already been used. :P

Dikiyoba hadn't actually intended to imply that, but it seems that Dikiyoba did, so lucky guess. :P

Well, I usually don't get intrigued and certainly don't wonder what some weird machines do. They do something. It's none of my business to find out what.

Insert game, the display read. Smoo happened to have his BoA scenarios with him, so he dropped one in.
At least I didn't drop in Backwater Calls. The horrible plot (holes) would have surely destroyed the script.

quote:
Behind them, the summoning machine created an exceptionally gigantic and ugly rat. Smoo gulped.
But is it a gigantic, ugly, brown rat or a gigantic, ugly, black rat? Oh, the cliffhangers!

These are my scenarios. I may have too much free time but I really don't care.

The solution IS NOT cats, it is:

Of course, vampires are messy to deal with once the rats are gone. Perhaps a cat is the solution, especially one with a rat flail:

I would have been more worried if you had put in Magus of Cattalon. Battling oneveans would be terrible; we'd have casualties left and right.

Sadly, I don't think Smoo will survive to tell of your (wrecked) evil plans. Unless help shows up soon.

By the way, what's that countdown in your signature for? In the Twist or No Twist thread, it was T -6. Now it's T -5. Is this some sort of tie-in with Dikiyoba's story, or is there something else going on? Are you planning on sending your Deth Ray into orbit?

It means he will soon be out of Evil Overlord quotes. Who knows what wonders and terrors he will choose to reveal after that.

Or it just means I have to stop posting from the CompSci Windows labs and do more posting at home (Uncle John's Bathroom Reader), the generic University labs (Larry Wall Usenet quotes), and the CompSci UNIX labs (make 'em up). I'm going to have to find something soon... I can't always be original with my signature; I'd be indistiguishable from Alorael! I guess I could always go back to movie quotes, or find some time to do more DikiStats.

That bat/rat scared me a lot. I feel bad for the rat.

I saw a bat sleeping on the wall of the building I work in. It pretty much kept that spot for three days. Apparently few other people had noticed it as no one (at least the people on that floor) did anything about it.

Meh. This is very common. "Hey, is not my job hunting animals here!".

No one did anything because then they would be accused of keeping a pet. The bat might be the oly interesting thing they see all day.

Dintiradan looked at the copy of Homeland in his hand. "I guess this really is evil. If I would have known that I could kill people with it directly

Just then, Rakshasi ran into the forum. "Zephyr Tempest! He's dead!" he said.
"Dead? How? What happened to him?" Student of Trinity asked.
"I don't know exactly. There's not a mark on him, but he's dead."

Why do I suddenly get the feeling that reviving Zephyr Tempest is not a good idea?

I'm not sure that was actually connected to this script, Lenar.

But on the subject of cats, rats, and such... I saw a hawk yesterday. It swooped past me (about 3 feet from my face), and landed in a tree. Specifically, it landed in a squirrel nest, dislodging a suddenly-terrified squirrel.

The scripts that other people wrote don't effect the main episodes. But it's good to see that someone remembered them.

That sounds awesome. And so does having a bat sleeping on a wall.
