A pawn promoted to a Queen (Valentines)

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 7:35 am

Battered
and bruised by a bat
the surviving DupliKate
assumed the identity of Kate.

Kate
has a problem now
of having to pay somehow
for Kate's
medical expenses
as using her left arm
as defense
against the dead DupliKate's
bat
had left severely offensive
damage like broken bones.

Kate
also has to take care of two kids
alone
along with a full time job
that Kate
will love.

It will be hard, I don't kid.

However Kate
now
has sole possession
of her great passion
the handsome Jack
that somehow
made the other DupliKates
hack
each other dead,
'nuff said.

I have to confess
that I profess
Titanic
hate for Titanic
the movie even if other
James Cameron movies , I do love.
I swear by Jove.

Twisted
end
and
another
one of my quick writes
that erupted out of sight
from my twisted
mind,
I find.

I still have more
in store.

I always had
this twisted
sense of humor.

I am glad
that some of my humor
is appreciated here
and from the readers. I like to hear.

It is sad
that my family does not benefit
from it
as I don't talk to them much
as such.

Kate's sad fate (Valentines)

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 9:46 am

I am Kate and if an accident don't kill
I will
be immortal.

It has been 1000 years but still
I love Jack
who
is immortal
too
but who
might
have perished in an event
that I have spent
hours thinking.

Event
was like a ship sinking.

However, it was in space
where perils we faced
in the cloud of Oort,
failing to abort,
Titan hit an icy ball
that led to its fall.

I looked for Jack
and found Jack
alive.

Jack
survived
but married now
somehow
to an immortal too.

I am blue
like sky,
don't ask why.

Kate tries to date (Valentines)

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 10:35 am

"I am over with Jack
and back
in the dating game" ,
said
Kate
to some cute guy
she really desires to date.

Guy
said,
"Dear Kate,
I hate
to break it to you,
in my view
you are too old,
my dear
a thousand years
too old,
I fear"!
Kate
was in tears
as her fears
materialized
as Kate
realized
that men like to date
younger girls and at any rate
1000 years is a long time to hibernate
after an event in the cloud of Oort,
failing to abort,
Spaceship Titan hit an icy ball
leading to its fall.

Kate vs the Universe (Valentines)

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 10:57 am

I am a survivor
of the ill fated spaceship Titan
launched from Titan.

I survived
in a stasis
pod for 1000 years.

I traveled back
in time to save Jack,
my love, from a sad fate
that will have us separate
and at any rate
countless other lives
if you get the jive.

However, once again
Titan sped towards the Oort
cloud and failed to abort
hitting an ice ball
like a brick wall
and my spirits did fall
as the ship fell.

Oh well,
the Universe has spoken,
our love will be broken!

I entered a causality loop,
oops!

A cyborg disconnected

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 1:25 pm

My Destination is Gileise
581g in the Gileise
system. Distance is 20 light years
and ETA is 100 years.

I was entering my Biz Class room
when I heard a loud boom.

The loud boom
was only the plasma fusion
propulsion
systems kicking in,
for the win!

We accelerated at up to 40 G
but it was all fine by me
since you see
we now had inertial dampeners on
and my earphones were turned on.

Mars neonet
went out of range.

No neonet
makes me feel really strange.

I unwind,
abandon the neonet
hive mind
and loneliness, I find.

Peer to Peer to anyone near

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 1:52 pm

My Destination is Gileise
581g in the Gileise
system.

A decades long trip we have
so we developed a system
to keep us from being sad.

Without the neonet
hive mind
terrible loneliness, we find.

Hence, we hookup to get
mini neonet
peer to peer
connections to anyone near.

Mental ability is amplified by the neonet.

I feel as if I lost
a vital organ in losing
Mars, Terra or Luna neonet.

It is my first time in years
free of the fears
of what others might think
as my mind does link
and exchange engram packets brain
to brain.

Won't the first indentical DupliKate to realize she can kill the Real Kate do so and take her place?
If they're all identical, won't they all realize this at the same time?
The only way anyone knows who RealKate is, then, is that she's DeadKate.
Are they all not fated to repeat the process until they are all DeadKates?

Original Kate
trusted DupliKate
entirely
at first sight
as you might
trust yourself.

Kate
didn't count on her flaws
to claw
into their lives.

DupliKates
flaw
is in being too like Kate.

Kate
likes
to live
an easy life like
the DupliKates.

Kate
likes secrets
and DupliKates
kept duplication
initially secret
from Kate.

I also envision the neonet
brain link as adjustable depending
on trust as we get
in our browser settings.

As hostility grew,
the less the original Kate
and DupliKates
knew
about what is in the others heads
moving the plot ahead.

I hope this delicate
explanation placates.

Killing Kate and / or DupliKates
is a last resort
as money grows short.

I find it hard to kill my identical twin
unless there is something to win
or gain
and there is a great deal of pain
in our relationship.

Relationships
in my family have broken down
due to money and we frown
but we don't kill each other yet
as desperate for cash, we never get.

The DupliKates are in debt
and that motive has depth.

It is really hard to kill
family unless there is a written will,
a desperate need
and a measure of greed.

It may be that our differences is what keep us from killing one another.
You said Original Kate was a 1%er, and DupliKates resented her good fortune.
If they are exact duplicates, what justification can there be for a difference in position? The Occupy crowd may justify their position by imagining the difference is nothing but dumb luck or inheritance. But most people acknowledge that differences in hard work, education, responsible behavior and talent have legitimate consequences.
In the world of DupliKates, you remove the basis for that agreement. I imagine it would be a Kate Eat Kate world. :shock:

The world imposes constraints
that does restrain
opportunity
to people with equal ability.

In Kate
/ DupliKate
world
it is the fact that only one Kate
is legally recognized.

I recognize
that I made a world
in which every Kate
is equal and I skate
into arguments existential.

If you were created to serve
a master that you really don't deserve
but you are sentient
and have free will
you
should be true to your
essence,
the essence
of being
a sentient being
and define
yourself as finely
according to the values
you value
and not as a peasant
servant.

Not Brain Hacking Jedi Yet! More practice get! said Toyoda

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 10:49 pm

"Not Brain Hacking,
Jedi Master yet,
more Brain Hack
practice, get",
Brain Hacker
Jedi Master Toyoda stared down
with a frown
on young Luke Codewalker
who wanted to meet Dark Coder
in the AppleMicrosoft DelStar building.

"Started
as White Hat
Hacker,
Dark Coder
had,
so sad.

Using only The Source
Code
for good until Coder
saw Black Hat
Side
of The Source.

Go to the Black Hat
Side,
Coder
did decide.

Be really brain dead,
you can",
said
Master Toyoda to Luke
who said
"I have the Brain Hack
ability my other friends lack,
for practice, I will be back"

I am here, the Dark Coder, I fear!

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 11:24 pm

I am the noob Jedi Language Brain Coder
Luke Codewalker.

I will meet Dark Coder
in the DelStar building soon.

It has been a couple of moons
since we lost our only
hope, CodyOne CanKnowBe.

It was a sad time to be
in the Open Source Rebel Movement,
a Movement
against the dominant AppleMicrosoft.

AppleMicrosoft
allegedly used rm StarDotStar
on our
Alderan Code Repository.

Sad story
involving the death of a million sentient AI
which is why
I am a very impatient guy.

AppleMicrosoft,
such actions do deny,
which is why
I am here
and the Dark Coder, I fear.

OhNoes! this can't be binary true!

Post by secretnude » Sun Jan 26, 2014 11:43 pm

"Luke come and join
me at AppleMicrosoft!

I enjoin
you to rule at my side
and together we will throw aside
the AppleMicrosoft
CEO!

You do know
Luke,
I, Dark Coder,
am your father"!
said
Coder
to Luke
who said
"It can't be true,
how can it be you"?
Coder
replied,
"I do not lie ,
search your binary
code
and decode.

It is binary truth"!
and Luke
found it to be binary truth
and then Luke
screamed out: "Noooooo"!

Luke
almost joined AppleMicrosoft
that day
but I say
Luke
was truly loyal to our Open Source
Movement against AppleMicrosoft.

### Your Choices: ###

a. Take the job offer
your father
the Dark Coder
gave on the table
after your are able
to think it through some more.

b. Help the Open Source Movement even the score.

I really want a Brain
Programming Language
BPL
and a Brain
Query Language
BQL.

Maybe in the future
such thing could be secured.

Natural Language
is so imprecise
unlike Programming Languages
that are nice.

Remember ,
Luke CodeWalker's
hand was not cut off yet
so a contract signing we can get
with AppleMicrosoft.

Microsoft
is less evil
now
somehow
with the failure of Win 8
that I hate
but will get
in a i7 laptop soon if the store gets
stock.

Stocks
not yet delivered
but ordered.

i7 model is in demand
as I understand
but the wait
I hate.

Space voyage to ennui

Post by secretnude » Mon Jan 27, 2014 3:19 am

Destination is Gileise
581g in Gileise
system
and halfway, we started slow deceleration. I know
it is a system
to ensure we don't use more
Helium
3 and Deuterium
that are stored
as fusion
propulsion
fuel in our City Class Hotel ship
that is hip.

We have bombs, drones and guns.
We can blow up hostiles for fun
but so far nothing
and more nothing.

Space was supposed to have battles epic
and consequences tragic
for acts heroic.

Glad
that trip has been a bore and sad
that decades passed.

I give that a pass,
everyone I know is immortal.
