If ever I do resume full time employment
I might find more enjoyment
from the company
of those in my new company
rather than my pathetic family.

I really don't automatically
love family
just because we are related
and the contempt is mutual.

I would actually
be elated
if I could live in an office full time
and not have the time
to see my family.

This is a forum for the weird
and I don't know if my weirdness
has similarities to other peculiarly weird
folk here except perhaps for ROU
but our similarities have limits in my view.

Bioships pregnancies in the Space Cat Fleet

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:59 am

Our three
female Bioships
have pair bonded with our three
male Bioships
after a short 'Bioship
Courtship'
that
was watched by this last 'Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats'.

Our Fleet
will soon
need the Babyships
in a couple of moons
as many Baby Cats
are due soon
due to a 'Baby Cat
boom'.

Quite soon
our ships
will indeed lack rooms
due to the Space Cat
baby boom
so our Space Cat
Xenobiologist that
is now quite familiar with Bioship
physiology
is now hastening the Bioship
pregnancies with energy
from a custom matter
and antimatter
mix
that the Xenobiologist fixed.

You aren't authorized to end your self.process permanently

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 09, 2014 1:48 pm

At the Heavenly Cloud
Servers were unauthorized suicide
isn't allowed,
living a virtual existence
could feel as real as a physical existence
except in edge cases
like in case
of the Virtual Child Tom
who decided
to attempt suicide.

Tom
died then respawned as if Tom
was playing a video game
since Tom's
existence
was a complicated video game
by any other name.

The Heavenly Cloud
Servers does allow
you to terminate
your existence
but your termination
is revokable
unless you are able
to clear your suicide
with the Heavenly Cloud
Administrators who will decide
the finality of your suicide.

Virtual
Child Tom
who decided
to attempt suicide
was sick of his virtual
friends
that teased Tom
to no end
for being a 'fake'.

Tom
didn't know what to make
of his family's obsession
with maintaining the illusion
of not living in a simulation.

Simulated
world feels so real
and virtual depression
feels like real
depression.

Maybe a Shrink
Tom
needed but Tom
did think
that any Virtual Pills
that would be prescribed to make
him chill
is just some code
with Simulation Override Mode.

Tom
learned how to hack
and that is how on his feet, Tom
got back.

Immature processes in the Heavenly Cloud Servers

Post by secretnude » Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:23 pm

Virtual
Child Tom
now having learned that he is virtual
now tried to erase the watermark
that marks
Tom
as a fake compared to his virtual
friends who were once physical
but now opted to be virtual
without being too virtuous
since they did curiously
experimented with process altering
like they did with mind altering
when they were physical.

There was a time when kids
like these wouldn't be allowed
in the Heavenly Cloud
servers but loud
protests of the parents
of these kids
apparently
convinced the Heavenly Cloud
Administration
to make the rules flexible
but the consequences were terrible.

Space Cat Military Draft among Space Cat Civilians

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 10, 2014 3:46 am

Due to Pregnant Space Cat
Puma Space Superiority Fighters that
we have to replace
we have put in place
a Space Cat
Military Draft among eligible Space Cats
that
are Civilian Cats
in this last Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats.

I have heard
unkind words
about the policy
but this policy
is a matter of survival
and potential revival
of our decimated Cat
race
that
is now almost erased.

We keep losing Space Cat
Pilots that
enable us to flee
from Terran Drones that are like fleas
so I do plea
for understanding
given the this fleet's
shaky military standing.

Rookie Space Cat Fighter Pilot Training

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 10, 2014 6:08 am

The GalactiCat
and the PlanetaryCat
are now conducting
a joint training
mission for the Rookie Space Cat
Pilots that
we 'drafted' from our Civilian Cats.

We are in an Asteroid Belt
where we felt
we got
a lot
of natural
obstacles for an inaugural
test flight
and mock dogfight
for our Rookie Space Cat
Fighter Pilots that
might see action soon
in a few moons.

Our Pregnant Bioships
are eating Meteoroids
by the block
and our Male Bioships
are doing the same while the MiningCat
is on an Asteroid
mining Asteroid Ore
but that
is a bit of a bore.

STA and MTA @ Gated Heavenly Communities

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 10, 2014 8:21 am

Process
altering subroutines
became routine
among the immature
immortal
processes
in the Heavenly Cloud
that has allowed
all that can pay a minimum service fee
to see
immortality
as a mental process.

Cloud
Management heard loud
protest from existing tenant processes.

Cloud
Administrators created
the Heavenly Cloud Gated
Communities
that has a degree of immunity
from the immature
immortals
since Gated
Community
standards
for entry
is higher than previous standards
for entry
to the Heavenly Cloud.

So many one percent
processes now rent
Multithreaded Apartments
at Gated Communities
with an admission cost
that is affordable only if you're the boss.

Curiosity might have killed a Galactic Cat Rookie Pilot

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 10, 2014 9:24 am

Space Cat Rookie
Puma Fighter Pilot Katie
was obeying the right
spaceflight
plan close to an Asteroid
obstacle
when a strange large tentacle
inside an Asteroid
crater seemed to randomly appear
then disappear.

Katie
was so much of a curious Space Cat
that
Katie
disobeyed spaceflight orders
and flew closer
to the Asteroid obstacle
to investigate the strange large tentacle.

Ten
large gray tentacles
grabbed Katie's
small black Puma Fighter Ship
and Katie's
spaceship
slipped inside the Asteroid
that is more of a Planetoid
due to its larger than usual mass
and we think the strange creature got Katie's
ass.

Probing an Alien Ten Tentacled entity in an Asteroid

Post by secretnude » Mon Mar 10, 2014 12:54 pm

The first Rookie Space Cat
Puma Fighter exercise that
was being
conducted by the GalactiCat
and the PlanetaryCat
has been suspended
pending
a thorough probe
of the loss of a Space Cat
via a remote controlled Space
Probe.

We are facing
a Ten
Tentacled
entity in an Asteroid crater
that could become a greater
threat to this last
Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats.

We Cats
don't want
another enemy
but we want
to rescue our Space Cat
Rookie Pilot that
first faced the entity.

We hope that
the entity
will not mind
our attempt to find
our lost Space Cat.

More Dead Curious Space Cats due to that 'Entity'

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 12:48 am

A Ten
Tentacled
Entity
inside an Asteroid crater
became a greater
threat to this last Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats.

Our space probe was eaten
by the entity
during our attempt to find
our lost Space Cat,
whose spaceship
the Entity
did mind
to wrap with Ten
Tentacles
and then eat.

The Entity
cast blocks
of rocks
at our ScoutCat
spaceship
that
is now a spaceship
wreck
due to a direct
hit.

We were bit
by the loss of two Space Cats
that
were controlling
the remote controlled
probe
that
probed
inside the Entity
that now considers us an enemy.

Shall the Cats Destroy the Strange Ten Tentacled Entity?

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 5:07 am

We were considering
destroying
the Ten
Tentacled
Entity that
maybe considering
us Cats
an enemy.

We lost two spaceships
and three Space Cats
to the Entity
when our conversation
of the impending destruction
of the Entity
gained some enmity
with our Cat
Xenobiologist that
despite the loss of one of his colleagues
still cite the old Cat League
Rules for Preserving Galactic Life
for Life
Science Studies.

I studied
that argument
but argued
back that
we Cats
are an endangered race
that is almost erased
and the dead Cats
must be avenged
since this Fleet feels the need for revenge.

Let us try to talk to a Ten Tentacled Space Entity

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 7:00 am

We were about to fire some antimatter
to make the Entity
not matter
when our Space Cat
Xenobiologist that
opposed
the destruction of the Entity
proposed
trying to talk first with the Entity.

I asked our Space Cat
Xenobiologist how he hoped
to accomplish that
and he said he hoped
that
this species is related to our Bioships
and that
one of our Space Cats
may still be alive
having survived
being eaten by the Ten
Tentacled
Entity
to become an endosymbiotic
subentity.

His endosymbotic
conjecture
was based on pictures
that we got from a probe
that probed
the Entity.

BioCom Bioship Communication Device

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:26 am

I examined closely the nice
looking BioCom Device
that
our Space Cat
Xenobiologist
uses to talk
with our Bioships.

I made some small talk
with the Xenobiologist
as to how the nice
looking BioCom Device
works which I suspected
was based on radio waves
and the Xenobiologist
confirmed what I suspected.

The radio frequency used by the Bioships
vary
and Bioships
are wary
of starting a radio conversation
with an entity unaware of the Bioship
Radio Communications
Protocol
which I do recall
does involve some signal encryption,
decryption
and compression
as an adaptation
to a universe filled with radio emissions.

Modifying the BioCom Device to talk to a Hostile Entity

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:52 am

Our once Wild Bioships
have learned how to intercept and decode
our encoded
Military and Civilian Ship
to Ship
Radio
Communications
after our initial radio
conversations
using the nice
BioCom device.

Bioships
have some of the largest brains
in the Galaxy and Bioship
brains
are well adapted to learning
radio protocols.

Learning
radio protocols
fast
made the Wild Bioships
last
against several hostile races
that want to have Wild Bioships
erased.

Our Bioships
have assisted us in modifying
the nice
looking BioCom device
so that we can talk to the Ten
Tentacled
entity
that seems to consider us an enemy.

Wearing a BioCom device inside your Space Suit

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 1:53 pm

The quite nice
BioCom device
is an Audio Radio Transmitter
and an Audio Radio Receiver
that you wear
around your neck like a ring.

The BioCom ring
is adjustable so you can still sing
or speak
to the thing
that allows you to speak
in Bioship
Radio Communications Protocol (BRCP)
and hear Bioships
speak
in your preferred language from BRCP.

BRCP
you see
has much
complexity
such
that the BioCom ring
is actually a living thing.

The BioCom ring
is a cyborg brain with a computer interface,
a radio
and an audio
interface
that your wear close to your face.

Cyborg BioCom Device origins

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 2:14 pm

We Space Cats
have only a few BioCom rings
since the BioCom ring
is a Cyborg Terran
thing
that we captured from a Terran
enemy vessel before the Terrans
destroyed our Home Planet Krat
that
made Terra
the sole Galactic Power.

We Space Cats
miss having power
over so many Cat
colonies that
now belongs to Terra
and Space Cat
rivalry with Terra
feels like another era.

We Space Cats
have a cyclic history
unlike the more linear history
of the Terrans
since we often self destruct
only to reconstruct
after centuries to former heights
with often with Military might.

Space Cats didn't maintain radio silence

Post by secretnude » Tue Mar 11, 2014 3:11 pm

The Xenobiologist
Cat was wearing
under a Space Suit one of our few BioCom rings.

The Xenobiologist
will use the BioCom ring
to talk to the Tentacled 'Thing'
that 'ate' a Cat Puma Fighter Ship
that slipped
with the Pilot into a central opening
of the 'Thing'.

Xenobiologist
now saw an opening
for negotiations
for the release of the Cat
that
is now an endosymbiont inside the Ten
Tentacled 'Thing'
that
is demanding
that
we depart
from this part
of the Asteroid Belt
as it felt
that we were a noisy neighbor
and leaving it in peace was a favor.

The Alien Brain that gained a node said 'No'

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 12, 2014 1:51 am

Our Xenobiologist Space Cat
promised that
this last Elite
Fleet
of Galactic Cats
will depart
from this
part
of this
Asteroid Belt if the Tentacled 'Thing'
to does us the favor of releasing
the endosymbiont Space Cat
that
now resides as a node in a decision
making organ
like a brain that
is quite conscious
but the aforementioned organ
does tend to make decisions
by consensus.

Consensus
in the decision
making organ
was made quite quick
and the decision
to deny our petition
for the release of our Space Cat
that
was part of the organ
made me feel sick.

A Selective Alien Collective Mind in a Tentacled Thing

Post by secretnude » Wed Mar 12, 2014 4:13 am

Ten
Tentacled
'Thing'
will not do us Cats
the favor of releasing
the endosymbiont Cat
that
now resides as a node
in the Thing's
decision making
organ so we asked the 'Thing'
if we can address that
node
with a Cat.

The 'Thing'
granted
what we wanted
and allowed us to talk
to that
Cat
named Katie
via the same BioCom ring
that we use to talk
to the 'Thing'.

Katie
said she is fine
in the confines
of the decision
making organ and that
it was her decision
to stay in the collective
since this collective
is quite selective.
