Space Thinker D: Part 11"See D, I told you I could get things my way"
"They put a collar on you Alex?"
"Yeah, to track my whereabouts for the duration of the punishment"
"On the Domicile they'd make us go into isolation chambers with nothing to do but lists of things to memorize for a punishment."
"Did they now?"
"...They said it was 'to make sure we learned something."
"Well, did you learn something? No, don't tell me what it is, just tell me if you did."
"Yes, I'd say he did" 32 piped in, somewhat disgruntledly as she had had to carry a heavy piece of luggage up the steps to the manor. "I administered it to him."
"Say, what's that thing on your arm?" Alex was actually looking past D at this point and really talking to 32 but meant the growth from part 9.
"That's what we thought we could ask you Mr. Alex. Do you have notes from your father or grandfather about biomachinery?"
"That statue gives me the creeps."
"D, that isn't a statue that's my grand... hey no don't"
Space Thinker D: Part 10"Mr. Alex, the board finds you guilty of withholding information from the Cor."
"Is there a way I could buy my way out of it?"
"We will decide that amongst ourselves. you are a rather valued client and a contributing member so that may work in your favor but your violations of the terms of service in your contract shall not go without punishment. Punishments tend to be severe."
The council of the board of directors huddled together and murmured as they worked at reaching a consensus.
"Ahem! Well Mr. Alex, in recognition of your family's years of loyalty to the cor, we have elected to minimize your punishment. You will not be kicked off the board."
"We are not finished yet."
"...You will not be kicked off the board. However, you will be placed under house arrest for a length of time."
"I won't be allowed to leave my estate?"
"Correct; provisions will be made to allow you to continue carrying out most of your affairs fr
Space thinker D: Part 9The Artifacts, D and 33-a were brought up to the Domicile.
She reported on the report of D's findings to 32.
"It seems to have information inside it which D is able to read. Sort of. Mr. Alex insisted that we should take it to his mansion and said it would be relevant to some of the things there."
32 thought for a moment about the implications of this.
"So then that doesn't follow with his earlier story of being just a wealthy con who lacks basic understanding of the technology his family made for us." Now it made sense why Alex wanted to make the request that he did.
"We don't know that yet. He is being detained at the moment and z is talking to him."
"Well how is D doing? The machine didn't make him sick or anything, did it?"
"Why do you always ask about him? Don't you think I did a good j..."
32 shot 33-a a look that said 'I am still in charge.'
"... Yes 32. Sorry. He had a bit of initial redness and
Space Thinker D: Part 833-a was not too happy.
"You guys are a bunch of dumbasses. If the artifact reads as bioactive and leaking microorganisms you could all be infected and you just infected us. I may need to call off the whole dig. This isn't going to look good to 32 or the supervisor."
"33-a, wait, before you do that,- we never assembled the three pieces. Also, our initial analysis reads that the bugs on the outside are nonpathogenic. We wanted to get some people to check the insides first before trying to reassemble the apparatus."
Alex wandered past the cordoned off area of the camp and stared at the artifacts intensely for a few moments then looked away from them. Much like there was something he may have recognized about them but was not saying.
"I could, if it isn't any trouble allow you to put this system back together on my estate D, 33-a."
"You know I can't allow you to do that because it is against Cor regulations."
"Ah, well, at least I tri
Space Thinker D: Part 7"Hey new guy, get your head in the game!"
"I'm the thinker, I'm supposed to help you guys"
"Pffft thinkers. 84_f you get a load of this guy?"
"Not yet 89_w. Hey man, you going to direct us here or what? Stop thinking about how much more important you probably think you are than us and get with the directing here. Oh, that isn't what you were thinking about? Look Mac (oh, D, that's your name), this is a cor company job. we've got to know what we're looking for. Start interpreting our data ok?"
The two diggers having said their peace, a chief hacker stepped forward.
"77_K reporting. Look man, do you have any idea what the people up top want us to find...? Cracking this old security won't be too tough, I've been practicing a lot."
D reflected for a moment. "They said this used to be a research hospital"
"Let me finish"
"alright 89_f, let the man finish."
"Continuing,... the records say that back i
Space Thinker D: Part 6"Okay D, I'm not exactly thrilled to be your field manager either, but just do what your job is from the file or whatever. I don't particularly care, if you mess up it isn't my problem." 33-a also grumbled a bit about having to mind the project, it not being fair because they were about the same age so what makes D special and how she'd rather be doing something else.
"So do I meet up with the team of workers now?"
"Okay, workers, we have an assignment today..."
"We know," said one of the archaeology diggers. "The cor gave us pamphlets already."
"Oh. Uh, this is my first time doing this."
"We kind of figured that."
"Look, are we going to work together as a team or not?"
At this point a hacker chimed in "Relax D, we know what we're supposed to do already, you just need to manage us a bit then turn in a report to her. The site is about 10-12 kilometers away from us. If you find something odd tell us but in the meantime just tr
What do Words Mean to You?Often times we think of listening as hearing what someone says. Sometimes when we listen, we hear the words and a voice, but we don't compute what the person is saying. Other times we do more than listen; we respond and interact, actually paying attention and understanding the conversation. However, rarely do we truly listen to someone else; truly hear what they have to say. We don't listen in an emotional sense, only in the physical. I'm guilty of this, as well as everyone else.
My reasoning of this result is because we idly use our words. Some of us have no purpose in talking other than just to talk. This causes us to start ignoring what is being said because we think the words being spoken have no meaning, often times forgetting that the person speaking is meaningful. Not to say that what they're saying isn't stupid or anything, but the way they feel is that the only way they can gain recognition is if the

Dear God, I hate religionIt has become apparent to me recently that our society is dictated by religious bigots. Most of our congressmen, namely republican, claim to have experienced some deity, usually one that they claim is beyond reasoning and logic, on a personal level. Religion often claims to be separate from the law; churches don't pay taxes, they get away with molesting children on a regular basis, and Muslim men are allowed to subjugate their women with burkas, beatings and imaginary laws. I would love to see a world without religion...Remember the dark ages?
Going on the OffensiveI have an idea.
While trying to get DA to change their policies we can also go on the attack against those who have attacked us. This :iconcoopermate: person needs to be brought down a couple of notches. They've set up an account specifically to use to report other artists' deviations. There are a number of people who have made comments supporting his actions. We can use the same tactics that have been use against us. DA have very specific rules regarding posting pictures of people, releases are required. below is FAQ #252. What it means is that any photo of a person posted by these hypocrites needs to have a release and probably doesn't. If we report their photos for violating this policy they will feel some of the same pain they've inflicted on others.
If anyone knows "coopermate's" other identity, I want it.
Model release forms? Do I need it? What is it? A model release is essentially an agreement between the photographer and model whi
An Ill Wind (Turbine) is BlowingWind2050: A Dystopian Society? (Vestas, et al. go Orwellian against anti-windpower grassroots) by Mark DuchampMarch 4, 2014
“From Ireland to New Zealand and Massachusetts to Wisconsin, there is growing outrage among rural and semi-rural homeowners about the encroachment of massive wind projects. The European Platform Against Windfarms now lists some 600 signatory organizations from 24 countries. In the U.K. — where fights are raging against industrial wind projects in Wales, Scotland, and elsewhere — some 300 anti-wind groups have been formed. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., about 150 anti-wind groups are active.”
- Robert Bryce, Smaller Faster Lighter Denser: How Innovation Keeps Proving the Catastrophists Wrong (Public Affairs, 2014)
The World Council for Nature (WCFN) was founded September 20, 2011, to defend Nature against aggression–and perhaps none more egregious than the dilute energy sprawl of wind turbines enabled by government-qua-man.
Untitled 4“Best Friends Forever” is a pretty little lie.
I spent my whole life looking for that best friend that would last forever; all throughout grade school and highschool. I did find said person, and we were always the best of friends, promising to always be there for each other no matter what; promising to be there forever. Forever is a very long time for grade schoolers and teenagers, though, and life is always changing at that age. The person you were at 14 is not the same person you will be at 18, and so, inevitably, your best friend today will not always be your best friend tomorrow. I said goodbye to more best friends than I can count in those 12 years, and each one seemed to be more difficult than the next.
I grew distant from the world in college; desperately joined the Internet in the hopes that, maybe, just maybe, my best friend was out there. I found three, actually, and naively, perhaps, we promised to always be there for each other; promised to be there forever. For
Rape Culture, or Something More?I have heard arguments before on the subject of "teach men not to rape". One side, predominately feminists, claim that we live in a society that supports "rape culture", and our sons (and even daughters) are learning that it's okay to treat other people as property if it means taking advantage of them sexually. On the other hand, people claim that we already teach our boys not to rape: so trying to drill the lesson into the heads of men who already wouldn't rape won't help lower rape and other sexual assault rates.
I feel that both sides are looking at the issue wrong. Speaking as a first wave, pro-life feminist, I think both sides of the argument are missing key points on the issue of rape and the society we live in that deals with it.
Firstly, rape is a problem. We have all heard too many stories of students not getting the justice deserved when sexually assaulted by their peers, where the school they attend either ignores their calls for help or does l
On this day in 1912, Oreo Cookies were sold for the first time. Describe to someone how you like to eat your oreos.
You take a cookie, you put it in your mouth and take a bite. Once it is in your mouth, you move your jaw up and down while keeping your mouth closed. Then, once it is crushed and moist in your mouth, you swallow it. As it goes down your throat, you should enjoy the sweet flavor and sensation of that once crunchy, chocolate cookie with sweet, delicious cream in the middle going down your throat and into your stomach. Afterward, you pick up a cup of fresh, cold milk and chug it. And in the end you think,
Let's Talk about HappinessWhat does it mean to be happy?
The word "happy" is denoted as being: characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy. So, what does this definition mean? Is it one shared by every person? How can this mental state be transformed into one that is physical?
The majority of people are aware of the phrase, "the pursuit of happiness". Being happy is what every person strives for and works towards, yet most people go their entire lives without ever feeling that they achieved true happiness. It's unfortunate, but nonetheless true. And then, there are those that give up on pursuing happiness because it seems like a goal that is impossible to reach; as well as others who consider happiness to be a foreign concept. Why is this so?
In my opinion, happiness is not an unattainable state. Happiness comes in many forms and each person experiences it in multiple ways. The trick is to stop believing that happiness is a tangible product that m
Un roti de Cupidon"Patron.. je suis pas sûr que ça soit une si bonne idée..."
Un bruissement d'ailes presque froufroutant sur sa gauche le fit se retourner d'un bond, mais il ne put percevoir qu'un bref mouvement du coin de l'oeil. Ils étaient rapides, bien trop rapides. Jamais le vieux ne réussirait. De nouveau ce bruit soyeux, semblable à des ailes de tourterelles, mais bien plus proche. Dans son esprit il pouvait les voir, tournant au dessus de sa tête comme autant de vautours prêts à la curée.
Le bruit assourdi des détonations résonna et tout autour d'Emmanuel une pluie de plumes commença à virevolter tandis que cinq bruits sourds accompagnaient la chute d'autant de corps autour de lui.
"Ramasse les, petit. On a encore du boulot."
Avec une grimace mi admirative, mi dégoûtée, le jeune homme se mit au travail, enfilant des lourds gants de cuir pour se protéger. Son sup
