I'll aswer my own question first.
How would your character/s react if a pack of Sentret with flamethrowers ran towards this/these said character/s at a ridiculous speed?

Radeem: "Trying to beat me with flamethrowers? Oh, come on!" and then she'd use one humongous fire blast (that would miss, intentionally of course) and watch the critters flee.
Ivysaur: "They're not going to fry me. They're Sentret, for crying out loud!" Soon after, he'd be suffering from several burns.
Cimi: She is often very sensible, but sometimes her curiousity takes the better of her. She would stall completely, stare at the pack of Sentret advancing towards her and mumble: "How in this world did they get those things? What are they?"
April: As I love Jack's mom, I'm going to include her reaction here. She'd go "Oh my gosh, how adorable sentrems!" and watch them go with a fascinated look on her face. Of course, she would not have the slightest idea about what the flamethrowers are, so you can't really blame her for that. Her son, however, the sensible little ten-year-old he is, would first out his attention into frowning at his mother mispronouncing Sentret and only after that he'd start running away.

Your character just won a Darwin Award. How did the stupid eff manage to do it?
I think the most likely to get the award would be Ivysaur, as he is insanely stubborn. He might get himself killed when trying to prove something he is absolutely sure about. Like, for example, that grass type Pokémon can, even when soaked in flammable liquids, beat fire type Pokémon (with all fire-powering gadgets availabl) any time. He is highly provokeable, so he'd probably even try to prove he can fly. He's a bit stupid like that. But hey, at least he has his pride.

Another character I can imagine getting the price is Cimi. She might even get one for the incident with the Sentret, described above. She wouldn't really deserve it, though, because she is stupid only occasionally and if she kets herself killed in some idiotic act, it's mostly an accident. She doesn't know what flamthrowers are, for example. Oh, well.


I look at this section several times a day, but that's for a reason: I always have my laptop on when I'm at home and I often do my school assignments with my laptop or by my laptop (not to mention all the other stuff I do with my laptop, and I read and play DS on my bed, which happens to also be the place my laptop is on...). So, whenever I get distracted, I take a peek.

Well, I set PC as a home tab in my browser, so whenever I open my browser, PC is opened automatically. I usually open my browser once every other hour if I'm home because of problems my computer seems to have, so that's why I'm here so often.

I broke my computer trying to play god.

=(

As for how often I check PC, a lot when I have the day off from work. Not a lot when I do work. But you people set the curtains on fire when I'm not here, and my tax money is not going to keep paying for those firefighters.

Preposterous. We would never do such a thing. *hides matches*

Anyway, how were you trying to play god, exactly? And why did it involve your computer? And do I want to know?

I was trying to extract some college-aged kid to move him to the Giant Ball o' Dirt because he looks like someone that I enjoy very very much.

No cookies for guessing. It should be obvious, depending on how well you know me. =P

I think I'll just go torture sims people. :)

My hamster just tried to commit suicide.

And you don't just need matches to set things on fire. I burned my thumb playing with a lighter and a leaf.

I'm randomly writing fanfiction as well. Oh-ho.

I actually had a breech of cover situation about a week ago when my younger brother spotted me on this site (my laptop's out of commission.) Fortunately, I managed to convince him that I was only here as a troll. :D

Now I'm reminded of all the times I would be in college with my laptop, hanging around this site. And I would be using a skin that had big giant Pokemon banner at the top and everyone on this site had their Pokemon avatars.

It was all right though, because I had no friends at college anyhow. Whoo.

And then there were the times that I played FireRed/Pearl in class. ;>>

Meh. I'm in college, and I'm on here all the time. If anyone has the audacity to care, I have a fine array of hardcover books to my right and a pair of rather sharp scissors in a drawer to my left that would be happy to take their complaints.

And about suicidal hamsters...somehow that isn't surprising. I've heard that they're rather fragile creatures when it comes to their minds. They literally can develop this condition called "wet tail" in which they are freaked out by so much stuff that they constantly pee themselves. It's life-threatening. Enough said.

My hamster isn't scared by anything, nor is she a fragile creature. I once held my terrier dog up to her cage, and my hamster just punched my dog in the nose. That was the last time my dog went near the hamster.

My cat's just afraid of the rodent under general principle.

Hell, I'm afraid of the hamster. For the first few days of her life, she was kept in a cage with a hamster that bit every human hand that entered the cage. I think my hamster caught that attitude.

Which is why I call her "Grumpy". :D

Not to mention the time that she fell from the top shelf of my desk onto my desk, landed on her back, and then bit me when I went to check on her. Same with the time she fell off my dresser, a lawn chair, and a table. She's a bizarre little beast.

Quick question for everyone: Was it ever stated the exact amount of years that passed between Ho-Oh's creation of the Legendary Trio and present anime!-day? Or at least when Ash was wandering through Johto? My copy of that episode is buried so far in the closet, Andy's watching it. (Ba dum pish!)

From memory, I think it was only stated as being a few hundred years ago.

Recursive topic answerment tyme!

Have you been bitten by anything before? If so, what?

I was bitten by a hamster once. It was running across my hands and then it suddenly decided to make a meal out of my finger. I almost dropped it four feet, the little jerk.

I've also been bitten by a dog and a lizard. Good times.

Insects want to eat me. Mosquitoes and ants, mostly. The latter hurts like a mother.

Also, my goldfish have bitten me. Occasionally, I like to let them nip at me, but there was one time when I was leaning over (with my hand gripping the side of the tank) trying to siphon water out of a certain corner. All of a sudden, there's this dull pain in one of my fingers. I think it's just the cold water because it really did feel like the sensation you'd get if you stuck your hand in ice water for more than a minute. But then I look over towards my hand, and my goldfish zooms away from my finger, looking only vaguely guilty.

Goldfish are secretly evil. Those cute looks they get in their big, black eyes are mere covers for plots to enslave humanity.

Hamsters, cats, dogs, and co-workers. Though I bit the co-workers first.

Dogs, cats, spiders, bugs... My current cat, Mayling, enjoys biting my feet and hands a lot.

Got hit with a golf ball once and was almost hit again recently. I've given and received golf ball wounds-- not fun, at all.

Cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, hippos. You know, the usual.

Anyway, I have decided to write yet another parody *gasp*. However, unlike my Sir Aaron parody of awesomeness, this one is going to focus on (drumroll) mod sticks/hammers/bazookas! There is one twist, however. I have decided that the best way to go about this is to use examples from this forum in my parody. The way I have chosen to go about this is to use pseudonyms for members here and incorporate them into the parody. Yes, that means that many of you will appear in my parody. However, some of you may not.

The reason I am posting this here is so that, should you wish to be excluded from this parody for any reason whatsoever, then you have the right to do so. So, if you do not want to be featured, then send me a PM saying so and I'll avoid using you in the parody. Before deciding, keep in mind that I am using pseudonyms, so no one will be directly named. Maybe an anagram or two, but no actual member names.

Note: I am not taking requests to add you to the parody. If I receive a PM that says "please add me in parody", then your chances of appearing will only become lower.

Also note: Astinus is exempt from either of these conditions.

I has a question.
Have you ever been injured in a sport?

Hey, so long as we're speaking of things biting us...

Aww. *hugs* I know how that feels.

Although I think my fish just see me as "the hand that feeds us," "our slave who will bend to our every whim," or "shiny object."

Lol, nice Astinus. Well, you really have no choice anyway. I doubt it will be hard for anyone to guess which character you are. Hmm, lets make a game of this. Once I post this parody, I think people should, in their reviews, try to guess which character portrays them/other members. I'm going to warn you, some will be easy and some will be hard. The better writers will probably be harder, and the weaker ones I pick on for subject matter will be easier.

Note: If you catch me stalking conversations, then it is more than likely for this parody. I want to capture personalities as best I can in this.
