    Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

    The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.

    -33 with windchill factored in

    class was canceled tomorrow because if we go outside our skin will literally freeze within 15 minutes without proper gear.

      Bruh. And I thought suddenly 20 degrees when it's been 40 was bad.

  5. this gives me e!mat vibes and idk why i am historically bad at reading mat though that would make more sense yeah. i don’t think you’d need to volunteer yourself, like, we’re obv gonna exe somebody. volunteering yourself would be rather suspicious actually.
  6. no clue and probably we could just exe him again tomorrow and see what happens but that feels like a waste
  7. idk why everyone’s so surprised that striker can still talk, like, ofc he can. this isn’t a game, it’s an investigation. kas isn’t gonna send a hitman to strikers house or anything
  8. i did a thing

    what it is about beauty that makes us need to share it? 

     

    what is it about a silent 4am snowfall in a crowded parking lot?

     

    the way the snowflakes delicately glide in front of the streetlight’s beam

     

    the tree next to it, shocked with frost, standing motionless in the wind like some violent monolith

     

    this light snowfall isn’t enough to remove all the previous days tracks and evidences 

     

    but it softens them all

    rounding out edges

    filling in spaces

     

    like it’s healing a wound, but not forgetting it

    an impression still remains

    a scar perhaps

     

     

    what is it about that flickering light in the window across the lot? why is it so alluring?

     

    is it the idea that someone else is sharing this beautifully meaningless moment with me?

     

    for this is an uncapturable scene

    i have not the technology nor ability to package it in any shareable way

    (i’m not sure anyone does really. not to capture the moment in its entirety)

     

    the idea that someone else is appreciating it as well…perhaps it lessens the feeling of burden

     

    the idea that this beauty lives and dies with me

     

    maybe that’s why we feel the need to share beauty

     

    perhaps we are all simply archivists, deeply aware of the temporal nature of it all

     

    perhaps that is why i started writing this

    i can’t save this moment visually, but perhaps i can linguistically 

     

    is this a poem?

    perhaps 

    i’m certainly writing it with a sense of formality

     

    why shouldn’t it be a poem?

    a beautiful moment deserves beautiful prose

     

    the parking lot is coming alive now 
    a few choice cars ferrying their owners off to some early morning shift 

     

    why does it feel like the moment is over?

     

    i was just anguishing over the lack of a partner to hold this experience with me

     

    and now I have evidence that it, at least it part, was viewed by a few others

     

    how can i simultaneously need to share this moment, and feel that it is ruined by the presence of others?

     

    am i simply narcissistic?

    did i merely want the credit for sharing this moment? do i just want to play god? to act like i was the creator of this incredible moment rather than a mere passerby?

     

    maybe all creatives are just playing god, taking what they are given and repackaging it into something else. 

     

    maybe the real creatives deserve to.

     

    who am I to share this moment? it is not mine to share

     

    as if i could accurately describe its beauty in the first place

     

    i’m not an archivist, i’m a thief, taking this natural beauty and making it my own.

     

    the fact that i have every intention of sharing this not-poem is proof of that.

     

    do i really care about the sharing itself? if i truly ask myself, am i trying to enrich others by sharing this moment, or raise myself up as some collector of beauty?

     

    perhaps i could prove it to myself by not sharing this writing. let the beauty be mine and mine alone.

     

    of course, that feels selfish.

    this beautifully dark frosty morning isn’t mine, thats what i’ve just been saying.

     

    by not sharing it, im claiming it as my own even more than I would otherwise. taking this god-given scene and refusing to let others in on its early morning secrets. 

     

    so im either a clout-chasing narcissist or a selfish blasphemer.

     

    hmm.

     

    i haven’t even done a good job of describing the scene. the musings on motive are more than half of this document.

     

    so best-case scenario, i’m not a narcissist or a blasphemer,

     

    i’m just a failure.

     

    this is quite the situation i’ve written myself into.

     

    i haven’t even mentioned how the snow-covered roofs of the opposing buildings blend into the grey colored sky, creating an illusion of infinitesimal proportions

     

    or how the snow covers each car in the lot in the same way, creating a beautiful tessellation that removes all personality but adds something much greater

     

    or how there’s one single streetlamp that stands unlit, casting one area of the lot into false shadow

     

    or how the light diffuses off of the snow, lighting things up in angles that would otherwise be impossible, providing an otherworldly atmosphere to the entire scene

     

    or how the early morning haze cuts off any other buildings from view, seeming to leave us stranded, floating in a void of gray. 

     

    ha, look at me, trying to correct for my errors while pointing them out

     

    how arrogant of me

     

    what a cliched methodology 

     

    i am yet again a thief 

     

     

    perhaps i should simply stop writing

     

    perhaps creating art is inherently selfish 

     

    perhaps sharing it is intrinsically narcissistic 

     

    perhaps attempting to create is always doomed to end in failure

     

    I do want to tie this experience to myself by transcribing it

     

    I do want to gain clout for sharing it 

     

    I definitely haven’t captured the beauty effectively, no matter how much flowery prose i sprinkle on top.

     

    so i truely am a narcissist, a thief, and a failure. 

    but maybe we all are

    maybe that’s why we share beauty

    maybe thats the real goal

    to scream out to each other, silently, under all the other layers of subtext:

    “i’m just like you.”

      I don't know what to say, other than, 

      "I like it!"

      You are quite the poet, Dannex.

  9. i'm really not so sure of how sound this plan is kas like what if the people with compromised accounts just don't sign up for this 'game'? and what happens if we lose the game??? do we just have to hand our accounts over to these hackers? i didn't agree to that
  10. nah i regretted this even while i was making it cat dannnex is too cursed
  11. thinking of changing the vowels in my name

    dont really like the way dannex sounds in my head anymore

    and people always just shorten it to dan and i dislike that

    possible options:

    dannax
    dennax
    dinnax
    donnax
    dunnax
    dynnax

    dennex
    dinnex
    donnex
    dunnex
    dynnex

    dannix
    dennix
    dinnix
    donnix
    dunnix
    dynnix

    dannox
    dennox
    dinnox
    donnox
    dunnox
    dynnox

    dannux
    dennux
    dinnux
    donnux
    dunnux
    dynnux

    dannyx
    dennyx
    dinnyx
    donnyx
    dunnyx
    dynnyx

     

    i dislike anything with vowel #1 as ‘A’ since then we have the same problem of people shortening it to dan

    and i dislike the way the second vowel looks as a ‘Y’, so those bottom 6 are out too. 

    i kinda like the first vowel as a ‘Y’, but that is definitely the most radically different from what it currently is

    idk

      What will your equation be :thinking:

      Cause it can't stay da[n=x]ex

      uhh

      import random
      
      vowels = ['a','e','i','o','u','y']
      print('d',end = '')
      print(random.choice(vowels), end = '')
      for i in range(random.randint(1,28)):
        print('n', end = '')
      print(random.choice(vowels), end = '')
      print('x')

      or maybe

      import random
      
      def internet_username():
          vowels = ['a','e','i','o','u','y']
          danex_variation = 'd'
          danex_variation += random.choice(vowels)
          for i in range(random.randint(1,28)):
              danex_variation += 'n'
          danex_variation += random.choice(vowels)
          danex_variation += 'x'
          return danex_variation
          
      print(internet_username())

      that second one is cleaner i think.
