(10:10)metampsychotic: the first thing you need to know about my dad is he tried to take over the world
(10:14)metampsychotic: no, really! he had like... four shadow companies active in a bunch of countries
(10:14)metampsychotic: all completely legal, i promise :P
(10:14)pwnz0rz: u've alluded to that before...
(10:14)metampsychotic: yeah, it's not something i make much of a secret of
(10:15)metampsychotic: i mean, if you google our name, articles about it come right up
(10:15)metampsychotic: not IMMEDIATELY, but it's not exactly hard to find
(10:15)pwnz0rz: that sure does seem like a flaw in world domination plans
(10:16)pwnz0rz: "ok general i think i've got a handle on who this supervillain is" "how?" "internet"
(10:18)metampsychotic: my dad's not a villain
(10:18)pwnz0rz: well ok
(10:19)pwnz0rz: but uhm
(10:20)pwnz0rz: i guess i got a little carried away with the joke there
(10:20)metampsychotic: he wanted to make the world a better place
(10:20)metampsychotic: how does that make him a bad guy?
(10:21)metampsychotic: there's so much terrible [censored] out there...
(10:22)metampsychotic: he had money and a conscience. what other choice was there?
(10:23)pwnz0rz: hang on
(10:24)pwnz0rz: didnt you say he tried to take over the world?
(10:24)metampsychotic: i guess that's a kind of silly way of putting it
(10:24)metampsychotic: he tried to use his business connections to fight corruption from the inside, if that makes sense
(10:25)pwnz0rz: im not sure i follow
(10:26)metampsychotic: oh, well
(10:26)metampsychotic: corrupt politicians do things if you pay them
(10:27)pwnz0rz: did he pay the corrupt politician to be less corrupt?
(10:27)metampsychotic: sort of! he'd fund anti-corruption initiatives, and then pay off moderately corrupt people to sell out the really corrupt ones
(10:27)metampsychotic: stuff like that
(10:28)pwnz0rz: no jugement or whatever, but this is the first i've ever heard about this
(10:28)pwnz0rz: actually idk if thats right but
(10:30)metampsychotic: i mean
(10:30)metampsychotic: the information's out there, but it's not like we want to draw attention to it
(10:31)metampsychotic: but i guess death threats aren't so much of a concern now :/
(10:32)metampsychotic: ineed am omemement
(10:32)pwnz0rz: go for it
(10:40)metampsychotic: when i was a little girl
(10:40)metampsychotic: ...i mean it was 15 years ago, i was in elementary school
(10:41)metampsychotic: him and mom had a fight
(10:41)metampsychotic: they don't know i heard
(10:42)metampsychotic: i had a fever and i was supposed to be asleep
(10:42)metampsychotic: but sleep is hard and they were yelling and i was sick and how was i supposed to sleep through that?!
(10:43)metampsychotic: i just wanted it to stop
(10:44)metampsychotic: so i came downstairs to... idk
(10:45)metampsychotic: i wanted to know what they were fighting about
(10:47)metampsychotic: there were guns
(10:48)metampsychotic: yes, guns
(10:48)pwnz0rz: as in pew pew murder
(10:49)metampsychotic: :/ yes, guns as in the handheld weapons that project bullets at high velocities into other people's bodies to turn them into corpses and are humorously depicted as making noises like "pew pew"
(10:50)pwnz0rz: your parents pulled guns on each other?
(10:51)metampsychotic: omg no D:
(10:52)metampsychotic: okay i see what you were confused about
(10:52)metampsychotic: but you're jumping the gun a little bit
(10:53)pwnz0rz: ive trained you well
(10:53)metampsychotic: i've never not liked puns
(10:53)metampsychotic: but i've never liked guns and... you know eugene panak?
(10:54)pwnz0rz: the admiral pancake guy? yeah
(10:55)pwnz0rz: he messages me weird things sometimes, about time travel and other wtf
(10:58)metampsychotic: he had a gun
(11:00)pwnz0rz: wtf was pancaek in ur horse for
(11:01)pwnz0rz: not horse
(11:01)pwnz0rz: being isnide a horse is a very diffferent kind of thing
(11:02)pwnz0rz: but like
(11:04)metampsychotic: i'm not sure...
(11:04)metampsychotic: he was pointing a gun at someone though
(11:04)metampsychotic: i couldn't really make them out
(11:04)metampsychotic: they were dressed like old-school korean, but were definitely white, and had an eyepatch
(11:05)metampsychotic: very distinctive
(11:05)metampsychotic: and they had a gun pointed at panak
(11:06)metampsychotic: tbh i almost wrote it off as a fever dream
(11:07)metampsychotic: but you know how i was home from school that day?
(11:08)metampsychotic: just an hour later, a teacher was arrested on terrorism charges
(11:09)pwnz0rz: ...terrosism like gaia???
(11:10)metampsychotic: i don't know
(11:10)metampsychotic: i was very young
(11:11)metampsychotic: and no one told us kids what was going on
(11:12)metampsychotic: by the time i was old enough to investigate myself, all the details had been covered up
(11:13)metampsychotic: but it's... i dunno
(11:14)metampsychotic: i'm not saying panak made me sick to keep me safe or whatever
(11:14)metampsychotic: but it feels like a lot of a coincidence, all that stuff happening on the same day!
(11:14)pwnz0rz: what even is with random people and being terrorist
(11:14)pwnz0rz: im sure you remember will
(11:14)metampsychotic: gosh, i think my friend's roommate being unum relicum is pretty easy to remember!
(11:15)pwnz0rz: thats why i asked if it was gaia stuff
(11:17)metampsychotic: yeah, maybe, and it certainly sounds plausible, but as i said, it was years before i knew enough to look into it more
(11:18)metampsychotic: but, luke
(11:18)metampsychotic: i'm not hiding because i'm sad
(11:19)metampsychotic: i mean... that's part of it
(11:19)metampsychotic: but i'm also hiding because...
(11:25)metampsychotic: what if i'm next?
