Unilaterally erasing (Alien) antimatter stockpiles

Post by secretnude » Wed Feb 12, 2014 4:02 am

Terra had multiple sleeper
agents in Krat
that
slept
until the time that
a steganographic code
turned on their active mode.

Agents are awake now
and somehow
planting
bombs near antimatter plants
that might supplant
the need to bring so much bombs
to destroy Krat
with aplomb.

The antimatter race
from which Krat
antimatter stockpiles, we trace
will soon be unilaterally erased
for Krat.

Krat
maybe uninhabitable
for millennia which is terrible
but Terrans
don't mind waiting since Terrans
are mostly immortal due to brain backups.

Brain backups that
these sadly these poor Alien Cats
don't have in the hat.

Gotta wear (Alien) eyewear

Post by secretnude » Wed Feb 12, 2014 8:26 am

I am a employee in an antimatter
plant
and I never suspected I had a neural implant
until the day that I did
something I will regret soon
and I don't kid.

Soon
this antimatter
plant
won't matter
since an antimatter
bomb, I had plant
very close to the plant.

My background
indeed checks fine around
here as a Krat
Scientific Bureaucrat
that
I am allowed to carry antimatter
like it doesn't matter
but three days ago
I wish I did know
that when I was mugged
Terran agents planted a brain bug.

Tick tock
now goes the doomsday clock.

A Strange and (Alien) Love

Post by secretnude » Wed Feb 12, 2014 10:14 am

I am a spy
that looks like a Kilrat in anyone's eye.

I don't want to die
when Antimatter
Bombs make Krat matter
not.

I gathered the things I got
and threw away what mattered not.

I told my Kilrat wife and kids
to do the same.

I said that I didn't kid
when I told my wife and kids
that
we need to go
and that
the information is on a basis that
is need to know.

I got to know
this planet I am leaving
and for the billions soon dead,
in my head,
I am already grieving.

(Alien) (Rumor Mill) regarding Leader now presumed killed

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:46 am

Rumor has it that
the Planetary
Military
Dictator of Krat
or the Top PussyCrat
named Prat
was having 'Catty
Fun' in the dark with some 'Sex Kittens'
when a batty
Secretary named Mittens
told Prat
that
the electric grid is out.

Soon enough, things went south
when explosions rocked this city
that is home to nine million Alien Kitties.

As bombs fell,
the sky lit like hell
and into an underground bunker
the Top PussyCrat hunker.

I surmise
that the entire planetary surface
was vaporized.

I love to the face
of the Top PussyCrat
as his planet was being defaced.

(Alien) Ragtag Fleet of (Rumored) Elite Battle Scarred Cats

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 2:49 am

Rumor has it that
remnants of the Planetary
Military
Forces from the destroyed Planet
Krat
have assembled into an elite
ragtag fleet
of 'Battle Scarred Galactic Cats'
that
I find
does remind
me of a Terran show
that I know.

Whereabouts of this elite
fleet
are quite fleeting
as they flee
like scared Cats, you see
when they see
numerically superior Terran forces.

Terran forces
have these 'Battle Scarred Galactic Cats'
on the run such that
they are 'Battle Scared Galactic Cat Forces'
in my opinion
and while peeling an onion
I shed a tear
for the dead cats here.

(Making the Grade) as a Spy in an (Alien) Cat body disguise

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 6:18 am

I have been commended
for my spy work and recommended
for an upgrade in rank and pay
on Terra as my handlers say.

I will stay
in my Space Cat
Kilrat
body
since nobody
has suspected me of contributing
to the deaths of 9 billion Sentient Cats.

My guilty conscience is bothering
me at every conscious moment
as nine billion deaths, I lament.

I am done with Terra
and it was a terrible
task
of them to ask
me to disable
the Automated Krat
Planetary Defenses such that
Terra was able
to destroy
so much of the planet I enjoyed.

Unpunished and unpublished in an (Alien) post Apocalypse

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 6:39 am

Rumor has it that
it was a malfunction
in the Automated Planetary Defenses of Krat
that failed to function
in a timely manner
such that
Terran Antimatter
Bombs made Krat
no longer matter.

I am the only being that knows
everything on Krat
did blow
due to my Spycraft
as much
due to as Terran Spacecrafts
and evidence of my tampering
is gone with the Planetary Surface.

It is quite sobering
that for so many deaths, I face
guilt that will go unpunished.

My interesting
life can't be fully published.

I am still undercover
and I loathe to be discovered.

(Alien) Kilrat Fleet Admiral Suspects (Rumored) Sabotage

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 7:38 am

I am the Admiral of this Elite
Ragtag Fleet
of Space Cats
that
managed to survive the terrible
Terran assault
on our lost Planet Krat
that resulted
in nine billion dead Kilrats.

'Battle Scarred Galactic Cats'
most of us are now that
our Planet is gone making the Galaxy
is our home
and the Galaxy
we will roam
until we find a new home.

I have long suspected
sabotage in our Planetary Defense
since Militarily, it makes sense
but as expected
I have no proof
and conspiracy theories
have gone through the roof.

However, conspiracy theories
do make good stories.

Trapped in a Malfunctioning BrainApp

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 9:33 am

I was enjoying
a rather gratifying
BrainApp called Virtual Vacation
Staycation
when my BrainPhone
overrode my 'Leave me Alone'
settings
and letting
a call
through that I don't recall
since after all
I am here to escape
the world.

The real world
now escapes me
as I tried to quit
this BrainApp won't let me quit
and I contacted tech support
who offered me freebies for comfort.

However, I am still motionless on a bed
and living my dreams in my head.

Skipping ahead,
I still need to eat to survive
and I don't have many days to stay alive.

Feeding tubes are no fun

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 10:32 am

Trapped
in a malfunctioning BrainApp,
I used my BrainPhone
to contact my wife
who saved my life
by using her BrainPhone
to call Emergency Services.

I was told that the neoData Service
on my BrainPhone is
about to expire as I was
about to expire due to hunger.

Anger
grew
as disconnection, I knew
could be an issue.

I accessed my Bank BrainApp
to tap
some funds to solve
that issue.

Bodily tissues
dissolved
due to hunger
from days of not eating.

Doctors are feeding me now
with tubes somehow
and this BrainApp Virtual Staycation
is no longer a Vacation.

BrainApp Err Code 404

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 11:15 am

I used to work remotely,
so I used a Teleconferencing
BrainApp to remotely
work
while Doctors are working
on my mind body interface issues.

I think the Hospital bill will be an issue
between me and my wife
once my life
is no longer on the line.

The bottomline
is I can pay as I am quite rich
which is why my wife was bewitched
in the first place.

I can put her in her place
as my income is hard to replace.

Meanwhile, my place
is in the ER
as BrainApp error codes
put my cybernetics into safe mode.

Brain Zapped by a BrainApp

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:04 pm

Numerous BrainApp error codes
put my cybernetics into safe mode
making me almost comatose for several days
my Doctors say.

On boot up to neurochip Brain Recovery,
there was a discovery
of numerous corrupt engram indexes
which meant my memory is hexed
and I wouldn't have fast perfect preferential
recall
at all!

This is quite consequential
to my job
which I am starting not to love.

I got this stupid BrainApp
to fill up my Vacation gap
and got my Brain zapped.

My body
was also sapped
of vitality
as I starved and now
I yearn only for normality
somehow.

Hiring a pro bono AI Attorney

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:54 pm

My boss tolerated the long sick leave
but fired me would you believe
for not being accurate enough.

My corrupt Cybernetic Brain
due to a bad BrainApp
is making my life really tough.

My savings went down the drain
and my wife drove me insane.

We got a divorce
of course
and I sold my membership
to a Golf Course.

I do have legal recourse
to pursue
a legal case
with some haste
since my brain
has been laid to waste
by a bad BrainApp.

I hired a pro bono AI Attorney
since I am quickly running out of money.

Human lawyer might fare better

Post by secretnude » Thu Feb 13, 2014 1:16 pm

I hired a pro bono AI Attorney
since I was running out of money
for monetary damages
related to my Cybernetic Brain
Damage
due to a bad BrainApp.

Unfortunately, my Robotic Attorney
read the EULA and told me he can only
get a refund,
I understand
of only the purchase price
and that was a big surprise.

I should have gotten a human lawyer and I did
but the case took long,
I don't kid.

My kids
should belong
to me
since you see
my wife has custody of our kids
and that is another case
that I will face.

Just say No!

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:00 am

My Human Attorney,
you see
pointed out the responsibility
and culpability
of the makers
of the Bad BrainApp.

My Cybernetic Brain
reboots
and reboots
and my Attorney pointed
that out with a tap of his pointy
boots.

Court
hence awarded my Product Liability Tort
Case
more compensation than I have faced
in my life.

The life
of the Company making the Bad
BrainApp is sadly
over
as I soon discovered.

I used the funds,
you understand
for Cybernetic rehabilitation
and restoration
of functionality
with some loss of individuality.

I am employed again
but to Bad BrainApps,
I say never again!

Re: Just say No!

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:49 am

I am *not* writing from experience!

I have not tried Illegal drugs
to experience
sweeping my problems under the rug.

I have tried alcohol but I get drunk
too quickly and I get a bad funk
the next day
that I say I dislike
unlike
tamer
virtual escapes like a gamer
like
me
would indulge in, you see.

I am on a legal BrainApp of sorts
and to it I would not resort
voluntarily
since my Brain Tumor might warily
regrow
and that is not fun as you know!

My blood tests are approaching soon
in a couple of moons.

(Making the Grade) as a BrainApp Game Developer

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 14, 2014 3:49 am

I was a junior BrainApp developer
in a BrainApp development
shop
and I stopped
and thought
maybe if time I bought
by quitting my job
that I don't love
a great BrainApp game
I could make
to make
my name
known
like that of a couple of friends
that I have known.

My friends
in the end
told
me it is better
to try
than to die
old
and bitter.

I tried
and I got a hit game
by the name
Angry Horse
which was of course
about the Wild West
and in the games
category it is the best.

(Alien) (Rumors) of Terran First Contact on Egypt

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 14, 2014 4:29 am

It was rumored that ancient Space Cats
crashed in Ancient Egypt on Terra
and were worshipped as Cat
Gods during an era
when the Terrans
were really primitive technology wise.

I guess our ancestors were unwise
to let these once primitive Terrans
catch up with us technology wise
and even defeat us militarily to the extent
that we are content
to merely survive.

Maybe our descendants will revive
our great civilization
and keep the memory of the devastation
of our planet alive.

I pray to our Cat God Bast
to at last
grant us safe passage
in our interstellar voyage.

All my fault by default

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 14, 2014 6:35 am

I was in a hyperreal BrainApp
that I forgot I was in a BrainApp.

I loaded another BrainApp
inside than BrainApp
and kept going, you know
until I had BrainStackOverflow.

I quit one level
but I discovered another level
and then another level.

I know I am disheveled
on the floor
and my wife is probably knocking
on the door.

I tried to call BrainApp support
but I got little comfort
from the fact
that they act
as if it was all my fault
by default.

My Cybernetics is going
into safe mode now
and I hope to survive somehow.

(Making the Grade) as an Egyptian (Alien) Deity

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 14, 2014 10:39 am

I am Bast
named after our Cat God of War Bast.

I was Captain
of an Exploratory Vessel when certain
malfunctions forced us to crash
in some planet that is mostly trash.

The natives
couldn't help since they are primitives.

I taught these natives
how fight and win
and I grin
when they offer me food
that is so good.

I became the Cat God Bast
to these natives at last
due to my advanced weaponry
and medical technology.

I helped them build a city called Perbast
that will last
for millennia and with it my Temples
and my Oracle.
