(??:??)pwnz1ng: uh, eugene...
(01:51)Admiral Pancake: I need a moment.
(??:??)pwnz1ng: alright
(01:56)Admiral Pancake: Right. Revenge.
(??:??)pwnz1ng: yes
(??:??)pwnz1ng: this is a good idea
(01:56)Admiral Pancake: Options. What do we have?
(??:??)pwnz1ng: the core...
(??:??)pwnz1ng: a [censored] ton of money
(??:??)pwnz1ng: (asusming yuou dont get arrested for crashing a space station)
(??:??)pwnz1ng: 2 time travellers
(??:??)pwnz1ng: uhm
(??:??)pwnz1ng: any planet side assets idk about
(01:57)zygoteconspirator: A mole within Theo's ranks.
(??:??)pwnz1ng: right
(01:57)Admiral Pancake: I'm not sure how much longer that will last. If Duckbot ceases to see me as a strategic asset...
(??:??)pwnz1ng: hmm
(01:57)Admiral Pancake: What is my power? What is the straightest route from what I have to what I want?
(??:??)pwnz1ng: uhm, boss
(??:??)pwnz1ng: i think right now "what u want" is not gettong [censored]ed up
(01:58)Admiral Pancake: No, that's a fool's plan. I will not be reduced to scurrying under a metaphorical rock by an insolent schoolgirl while my enemies play the game without me. Not after so long... nor what it's cost me.
(01:59)Admiral Pancake: What is my power?
(02:00)System: User pwnz2much is joining #griddle-lifepod-2.
(??:??)pwnz2much: time travel
(??:??)pwnz2much: obviously
(??:??)pwnz2much: anything can happen if you're willing to off a bunch of your other selves
(??:??)pwnz1ng: sup
(??:??)pwnz2much: casually exploiting a parallel self to speed-read the chat log
(??:??)pwnz1ng: cool
(02:02)Admiral Pancake: How does that work?
(??:??)pwnz2much: i flipped a coin
(??:??)pwnz2much: heads, i wait 10 minutes after the connection comes back to start reading, then tell a robot to shoot me
(??:??)pwnz2much: tails, i don't
(02:03)Admiral Pancake: ...how does that help with speed-reading?
(??:??)pwnz1ng: cause a dead pwnz2 means alot of missed shatterpnoits
(??:??)pwnz1ng: missed shatnerpoints means more work for giai
(??:??)pwnz1ng: so to avoid the missed shatter ponies it merges the timelines
(??:??)pwnz2much: exactly
(??:??)pwnz2much: and technically neither of myselves ever died, tho a willingness to go through with it was important
(??:??)pwnz2much: thats where the robot comes in
(??:??)pwnz1ng: so u c???
(??:??)pwnz1ng: if you can get passed your fear of deaf u can totally recvover form all this
(??:??)pwnz1ng: death*
(02:05)Admiral Pancake: What did you have in mind?
(??:??)pwnz2much: i'm not sure
(??:??)pwnz2much: you're more familiar with the timeline than i am
(??:??)pwnz2much: what's one small event that would radically change things for the worst... in a way that [censored]s up a shatterpoint...
(??:??)pwnz2much: ...but which you can turn to ur advantage after a merge?
(02:07)Admiral Pancake: I'm not sure.
(02:09)Admiral Pancake: Oh my atheism. That is my power.
(??:??)pwnz1ng: athiesm???
(02:10)Admiral Pancake: No. Someone from my past...
(02:10)Admiral Pancake: Someone who I tried to kill. If things had gone just slightly differently...
(??:??)pwnz2much: whatever you're planning, remember
(??:??)pwnz2much: you're not going to see it
(??:??)pwnz2much: it has to matter after a merge, and has to have a well-defined merge condition
(??:??)pwnz2much: otherwise you just piss off gaia for no reason
(02:13)Admiral Pancake: I understand. Your little stunt with the coin...
(02:13)Admiral Pancake: That's what you intended, isn't it? To wake up my ruthlessness and let me see what I had to to. I understand now.
(02:13)Admiral Pancake: Get me an outgoing connection.
(??:??)pwnz1ng: when?
(02:14)Admiral Pancake: August 3rd of this year. Midmorning EST.

Xenocartographer (Official Note): An on-time update? In my Cthulhu-fhtagning chat log? Haha, but pwnz2 really did fork a timeline for the specific purpose of forcing a merge so some of the information would leak back to his original self, and if you think that's confusing, just wait for page 150.
Xenocartographer (Official Note): (Because that page is intended to clarify some of the time mechanics. I promise, I'm not that big of a jerk.)
Seabiscuit: Oh gosh, killing off Bloodshoes sooner or not killing him? I wonder how that'll affect things actually...
Guess it depends on whatever Bloodshoes was doing for him edit delete reply
Turquoise: We passed 150 though. Or is that the joke? You said that a LOT of logs ago. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: This is page 145. 150 is five to go. edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: "I'm not gonna murder Arbiter! That'd require going to England, if I go to England I have better things to do!" ~Xenomap
(We were talking about your PM to Gaia, I told her I was sure it'd end in murders) edit delete reply
Arbiter: I live in Canada, you boob! We've been not-England for only slightly less time than you have! :P edit delete reply
Guest: "I thought he mentioned
being from across the pond
! Also, "Boob"? What is this, Drake and Josh?" edit delete reply
Guest: Woops that was me biscuit
Apparently quote tags break the comment kinda too edit delete reply
Arbiter: Nah, that must've been someone else. I'm the one who referred to Los Angeles as "rip-off Vancouver."
Has Xeno been reading all of my angry, sweary comments in a British accent this whole time? Because we've already established that I sound like Gordon Ramsay on the inside, so I might as well sound like him on the outside as well. edit delete reply
Arbiter: Sorry, is that not a common expression in the US? Mid-2000's-era sitcoms provided me with most of my interaction with American culture. My first impulse was of course to use "hoser". edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: -snerk- Haha the only time I've ever heard it used was in old sitcoms, but like, 90s ones edit delete reply
Pyre Light: Ok, I just spent far too much of my sleep cycle reading all the archives, and now I fear I have to go back and read the comments too... Bravo! edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Welcome aboard :) Haha, I'm very flattered, but you should have an easy enough time following without reading the comments, at least if I did my job properly... edit delete reply
Pyre Light: I was wondering what color I would be, pretty happy with this ... Tealish? Thing. edit delete reply
SansTheComic: wow. this is basically Coil's superpower from Worm. edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Haha, I haven't read it D: Can you elaborate, or would that be too much of a spoiler? edit delete reply
Steve the Mew hunter: Well this is terrifying. edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: I'm curious, how do some of y'all find Unichat? Like, I figure at least some of you find it from CF, but then most of you don't have accounts there. Accountless lurking? edit delete reply
Arbiter: I found it through TVTropes. I didn't end up creating my CF account until I was already a dedicated reader. edit delete reply
CONNECT 1200: Top Web Comics. Just don't ask how I ended up there in the first place. edit delete reply
Pyre Light: TWC for me too ... I decided to search for sci-fi webcomics on basically a whim and chose unichat and Demon Archives for closer examination. edit delete reply
Pyre Light: Do you think the shoot-me robot runs on the same API as the coffee delivery robot? edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Quite possibly. JSON is a pretty standard, uh, standard. I guess the real question is whether pwnz2 would bother (or know how to bother). edit delete reply
Little Guy: I don’t know why, but when I tapped the adress on my ipad, it comes up with “Pancake”.
