    Default Alpha Insanity Appreciation Thread

    Alpha has went insane and 90% of the forum agrees with me.

    It's difficult to say when it began but I think it arose out the "debates" between Phaedrus and Alphans such as Carla and Logos. Dolphin was somehow involved as well. All of it led to the creation of the "Alpha Study Chamber," which by itself seemed perfectly harmless...

    The thing that is out of place here is Phaedrus, a non-Alphan. It's like the "butterfly effect."

    The study chamber seemed to be a brilliant Ne invention... sort of like the Alpha refrigerator. But it can also be seen as the first signs of the rising insanity.

    <insert slippery slope>

    Then there was the flurry of poll creation by Kamangir... this was innocent enough except that he asked the Gammas to vote for the leader of Delta. The poll listed members of Gamma except for Dee (who is a member of every quadra) and Logos. Why this stray Alpha among so many Gammas we are forced to ask?

    Logos was exiled from Alpha, stranded in Gamma, and sang woeful songs, songs of an seeker in a land devoid of .

    But what has occurred? Is it a family feud within the Alpha quadra? A strange plague? A civil war? The work of a single engineer (Kamangir) with a master plan? The Alpha quadra seems to either be prospering in ways it never has before (perhaps due to the increasing presence of SEIs), or it is tearing itself apart at the seams... Not only this, but Dolphin has been using a greater variety of emoticons as of late. What can it mean?

    Certain factions within the Alpha quadra, perhaps led by Carla, have been working to bring Logos back from exile and seal this apparent rift within the quadra... These factions have suggested that Logos wasn't ever really exiled, but is actually in need of a new palace... we wonder if it will ever be finished though when the SEIs are being crazy and the Alpha NTs have a "work? what's that? no, I don't do work" attitude. Logos himself expressed bafflement that the building of his new palace would require work. What is clear here is that no one is quite sure what has happened with Logos, and the role the Kamangir plays in it. Muddled information is all that can be gathered.

    Most recently various "appreciation" threads have been propping up throughout Alpha-land. We don't know what this means, but we have noticed that Alphans feel that all must be appreciated equally, some more than once. This seemed mostly contained to Alpha at first until LokiVanguard launched his vehement objection of "stop this," or something of the like. It was then that Chopin opened up an appreciation thread in Delta! This is a shocking development... for the "plague of Alpha" is no longer contained... it now has whispers in Gamma where the rift began in a noticeable way, as well as "whispers" in Delta. The Alpha insanity is spreading.

    Suggestions have been made, and have hopefully been tossed out, to replace Logos with a non-Alphan, like Glamourama. The Alphans have suggested using sponge bob torture, the horror. This would spread the insanity to Beta, so hopefully Cracka's van has a flat tire, a burnt out carborator (why can't I spell... is that even a part in a car?), a dead battery, and has been recently stolen. It's settled. The kidnapping operation if attempted will fail.

    Then there are the cries everywhere that the forum is going to shit. And the frequent mentions of "you just now noticed" wherever this is proclaimed. Is it the butterfly effect again? Caused by the dynamic with the People Without Quadras such as Phaedrus and Dee? We seem to be coming out of the age of the "anti-Ti/Fe" but where is it going now? "Ask not where it is but to where it will lead." (bastardization of something Tcaudilllg said)

    I accidentally hit return and it posted before I wanted it to. Now I can never take it back! Ever! Oops, I almost did it again.

    Ok, ok I'll admit it. I sorta did. Well, not really, I was a week past 16 when it happened, but it was Nick, so...errr...I guess that counts for something? Probably not, it was purely circumstantial after all

    Oh and it was in a park!

    I did real early in life... (actually I was molested earlier than that but I don't count that). but so I did it before I even hit puberty with a girl who was like 4 years older than me. It was pretty confusing, and I didn't really understand what was going on. That, along with other stuff, screwed me up pretty bad and it didn't happen again until my mid 20s.

    like anyone cares about this...

    sorry...

    point is, I can respect and understand the wait for marriage thing. But I don't think it's very realistic... and can cause problems of it's own in the modern world. I also think its cool the other way, as long as you're ready for it and can cope.

    That too.
    And because of you SEIs.
    If it wasn't for you guys, this quadra would be sort of normal.
    If it wasn't for you guys, I wouldn't have anyone to kidnap.
    Cause and effect, my friends.
    If I had no one to kidnap, there would be no crime in this neighborhood.
    No crime, no passion.
    This would be a boring and safe place to live.
    Gamma or Delta would want to move here.
    Then I would be all like "Fuck this..." and leave.
    I would probably end up in Beta.
    And God knows how I would end up in there...
