Challenge #02763-G206: Makes Sense?

A: Why everyone is releasing stress hormones?

B: oh, it's just turbulence -- Anon Guest

Humans are unfathomable. Sil had been seated near this one since Faranaway Station, a process involving a lot of stops and hazards, and at least two journeys through Hyperspace. Now that they were on their destination planet, the Human Qin was exhibiting high levels of stress.

Sil checked. They still had the same destination area in their itinerary. "What is the matter? Why are you exuding stress hormones now?"

"I hate flying," said Human Qin. "I feel so unsafe up there." This of course was a typical display of Human illogic that Sil had previously believed to be a hypothetical example of such.

Sil had to ask. "You were much further from safe ground and in a more dangerous means of transit mere hours ago. Why is this method feeling more dangerous for you?"

Good Morning! It's Day Zero!

...for the fourth freaking time in a row.

It's been one case a day for four days after the initial three were discovered. We're watching the numbers and Chaos returns to school if, by the end of the week, there have been less than three cases in three days. If there have been more than three cases in three days during the week, Chaos stays at home.

Frikkin covidiots...

Victoria has entered into severe quarantine and the exact people who've caused this

"OW! [Fornication] [excrement]! What the [undesirable afterlife] did I just step on?!" -- Anon Guest

Some toys were made to be weaponised into anti-personnel measures. One has, by logic and design, a set of small, modular, interlocking bricks designed to be parts of a creativity toy for children. Children are renowned for not putting away their toys, or not being very vigilant at doing so. There are, to children, much better things to do than looking for tiny building blocks.

Most adults

Three Day Zero's

Three of them. In a row. Three days of new plague cases, two of which were actually caused by the lying criminal plague-vectors who decided it would be fun to go to Melbourne, shoplift, and then lie about being there. One such case was found in a nursing home and by now we all know what that means. Huge outbreak because nursing homes are universally underfunded and neglected by anyone with a four-figure retirement payment in their wages.

But hey, as long

"Imagine that this experience happened to you. You're a small artist in the 21st century that no one cares or gives a second thought about. Everyone says that your art is complete garbage and will never be remembered or cherished. then, in your darkest of days, a man in a suit takes you in his time machine and takes you to a popular museum which holds your work, work that people thought was trash

An Milestone!

It's taken me literal ages, but I finally accomplished 108K in KOSBOB. Were this my normal output, I would have four weeks to go in the writing thereof. But these are not normal weeks and I should not feel guilty about that.

This entire clusterfuck of a year has done things to my brain. I swear I have trauma exhaustion. Worrying about the plague, worrying about people I love stuck in the middle of it. Worrying about (seemingly) Round 2398654 of the

Challenge #02760-G203: Biological Hazard

"Attention, intruders. Your attention, please. This is the ship's human. I am sincerely sorry to inform you that my Aunt Flow has come to visit me for Shark Week. You have ten minutes to get out of here before I come over there, rip you open with my bare hands, and feast on your internal organs to replenish the vital materials that my body has decided to purge via my reproductive system. I haven't been able to find any pain relief that

It's a Clusterfuck Morning!

The LAN is down so I'm using precious phone data to do my thing, so I shall be not present online until such time as the household interwebs is back to fully operational status.

Which means working solely on my laptop again, whee!

In the news this morning, Victoria has finally made mask-wearing mandatory. A move they should have done when the alleged "second wave" hit certain select suburbs. At least this has a passing chance of stopping the Karen Squad before

Challenge #02759-G202: Empirically Tested

I would love to see Mythbusters in Space! You know, where some humans have seen the original old videos of it and decides to do a new mythbuster series based for their era? It'd be cool! -- DaniAndShali

[AN: In light of recent losses, I have debated having a Human Grant in this one and... honestly... I didn't want to risk disrespect to his memory]

Of all the fucking dipshits...

Two teens in plague-riddled Melbourne decided they could skate around the rules no problem. They did this by flying to Sydney, staying inside the airport terminal, lying about where they were from, and then subsequently flying to Brisbane and repeating their Great Lie Schtick.

They've now been whacked on the head by a $4K fine, but that's small comfort. Why? Because they were rattling around loose for eight days. Unaware that they were spreading plague everywhere they went. Including the private school

Challenge #02758-G201: Organic Pest Control

A shipment of fruits and plants that had gone through a DeRegger station was opened in a very large Alliance station. The plants were bound for a new section that had been added to the botanical garden there. Unfortunately, an unwanted guest came along with it. Within a month or so, that dreaded high-pitched sound that all humans from Earth knew all too well was starting to be heard. An invasive pest that bred rapidly anywhere there were pools for it to

Oh boy

I have PLNs to go for the throat in today's Wordpress Wednesday. The throats of every entitled so-and-so who thinks that protecting everyone else by wearing a mask is too firkin much bother. Or a violation of their rights. Or too huge an inconvenience.

Fuck their nebulous "breathing condition". I'm coming for their arses.

How, you might ask?

By scripting a bunch of PSA's that I wish I could make if I had the money. If the government wants to use the

Challenge #02757-G200: Say it With... ????

A xenobiologist decided to study the mating behaviors of many other races from the the weakest havenworlders to the strongest deathworlders. However, when it came to ... ah... HUMAN mating behaviors, well, things just got weird! -- DaniAndShali

It was the study of centuries, greatly aided by just hanging out in various public zones of crossroads stations and people-watching. Of course, the more invasive aspects of the study were a matter for each species individual fictions and documentaries. This study was about the

Three days plague free! Yippee!

Let's recap this year:

  • Australia was on lots of fire
  • A heinous plague emerged from China
  • Probes were spotted orbiting the moon [they weren't aliens, boo]

  • The Muppet bought it
  • New Zealand did not
  • Australia tried to straddle the middle
  • Protests erupted in the USA that have bordered on a civil war
  • Fascists gonna fasc
  • Australia nearly beat the plague
  • The Muppet's astroturf

Challenge #02756-G199: Oh Marvelous Me

I'm sorry to add to your already heavy workload that is your Prompts. But I would really like to see Unununium Jones on her stellar yacht get her just deserts. (From Prompt #02605-G048: Atomic Element Number Six) -- Anon Guest

[AN: Link thanks to DaniAndShali <3 Bless you for being helpful]

Life, the saying goes, is like a shit sandwich. The more bread you have, the less shit you have to eat. That saying was certainly true of Uni Jones. She
