10:00:49 PM ColDougMcKnight: Evening.

10:01:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Heya.

10:01:15 PM ColDougMcKnight: Rachel should be along in a minute.  You may commence the face palm whenever you like.

10:02:23 PM Jusstin Case: Ahh, I remember this place.

10:02:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hi you two

10:02:30 PM Charity Suite: ::fixes her hair::

10:02:38 PM Charity Suite: Hey all y'all!

10:02:54 PM ColDougMcKnight: Evening!

10:03:02 PM Jusstin Case: ::straightens his collar::

10:03:04 PM Jusstin Case: Greetings!

10:05:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: Hello!

10:05:12 PM Jusstin Case: ... Was it something I said?

10:05:22 PM Charity Suite: I do that.

10:05:27 PM Charity Suite: /r DO what?

10:05:33 PM Jusstin Case: ...

10:05:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::twitch::

10:05:38 PM Jusstin Case: You are all weirdos.

10:05:40 PM Charity Suite: /g You know, use EQ slashies to talk.

10:05:53 PM Jusstin Case: /e cries.

10:06:00 PM ColDougMcKnight: *cries*

10:06:10 PM Charity Suite: /em Charity grins at Jusstin

10:06:41 PM Jusstin Case: /em Jusstin plays the world's smallest violin.

10:06:49 PM Jusstin Case: Crap, I hit the wrong macro.

10:06:51 PM Charity Suite: /say I like that one

10:07:48 PM Charity Suite: Was there a party that someone forgot to tell me about?

10:08:16 PM Jusstin Case: I get used to that.

10:08:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr's gonna be late, Glenn's usually late, and AIM isn't letting Carre in the room.

10:09:00 PM Jusstin Case: Hmph.

10:09:26 PM Charity Suite: We can leave the room and have her make it.

10:09:32 PM ColDougMcKnight: Or eat her.

10:09:35 PM ColDougMcKnight: We could do that.

10:09:38 PM Charity Suite: ::blinks::

10:09:49 PM Charity Suite: I just had dinner.

10:09:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Well, yes, we could do that... but why.

10:10:00 PM ColDougMcKnight: Vulcans...taste...like...chicken.

10:10:03 PM ColDougMcKnight: It's true!

10:10:09 PM ColDougMcKnight: Some wise person said it.

10:10:09 PM Jusstin Case: ::raises an eyebrow::

10:10:16 PM ColDougMcKnight: Oh.

10:10:19 PM Jusstin Case: I don't want to know how you know what T'Kirr tastes like.

10:10:27 PM ColDougMcKnight: Wait, Carre's not a Vulcan.

10:10:40 PM ColDougMcKnight: Human ALSO tastes like chicken.

10:10:47 PM Jusstin Case: Still creepy.

10:10:51 PM ColDougMcKnight: Of course it is.

10:10:53 PM ColDougMcKnight: :-D

10:10:55 PM Charity Suite: Actually, they taste like pork.

10:11:00 PM ColDougMcKnight: Oh...right.

10:11:02 PM ColDougMcKnight: Except for babies.

10:11:04 PM Jusstin Case: ... Pork?

10:11:07 PM ColDougMcKnight: THEY taste like veal.

10:11:11 PM Charity Suite: ::laughs::

10:12:07 PM ColDougMcKnight: Creepy enough yet for you, Case?

10:12:16 PM Charity Suite: Yes, Rob.  Of all the flavors of meat, humans (reportedly) taste most like pork.

10:12:44 PM Charity Suite: So, that's why you call police officers Pigs.

10:12:47 PM Jusstin Case: So ... Admiral, about that transfer I requested ...

10:12:54 PM ColDougMcKnight: Because you eat them? I should have known!

10:13:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: DENIED FOR IT IS DINNER TIME

10:13:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: THAT'S what all those donuts are for. We fatten them up for the slaughter!

10:13:38 PM ColDougMcKnight: Although...following that logic, why do we give them guns? Seems like a silly thing to do.

10:13:51 PM Jusstin Case: For the sport?

10:14:22 PM Charity Suite: Well ... we do outnumber them.  It's a sporting chance.

10:14:37 PM ColDougMcKnight: I dunno. When's the last time YOU saw a cow and thought "Hmm..maybe I should give it a KATANA. You know, for sport."

10:14:51 PM Jusstin Case: Yesterday?

10:14:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Still wouldn't be very sporting.

10:15:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: They don't even have thumbs.

10:15:19 PM ColDougMcKnight: Neither did Raiden in MGS4. He still managed.

10:15:28 PM ColDougMcKnight: And he had TWO of them.

10:15:45 PM Charity Suite: Katanas are overrated.

10:15:55 PM ColDougMcKnight: It's all about the claymore?

10:16:07 PM Charity Suite: That does have more cowbell.

10:16:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ignoring the implausibility of a katana in modern combat, there's still the silliness of using two of them, which is basically impossible.

10:16:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (and I'm still trying to get Carre in here)

10:16:35 PM Charity Suite: Yeah, if you're going to use two hands anyway, you might as well swing a claymore.

10:16:40 PM ColDougMcKnight: Yes, Jason, but see, in video games there is this thing called "suspension of disbelief". It lets us think these things are cool.

10:16:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You might as well use an AR-15.

10:16:45 PM ColDougMcKnight: Also, I own a claymore!

10:16:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Because using a sword is dumb when guns exist.

10:16:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: :-(

10:17:00 PM ColDougMcKnight: I will kill you.

10:17:04 PM Charity Suite: It's just like a Klingon ...

10:17:08 PM ColDougMcKnight: I will come to you in the night, and kill you.

10:17:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: With my claymore.

10:17:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: To bring a knife to a gunfight!

10:17:24 PM Charity Suite: Where is your better half, Mike?

10:17:30 PM ColDougMcKnight: ...

10:17:30 PM Jusstin Case: So ... Glenn.

10:17:35 PM ColDougMcKnight: Um...this IS his better half.

10:17:35 PM EnsRyanCarter: So Robertito

10:17:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: o hay  Glenn

10:17:39 PM Charity Suite: ::grinning::

10:17:41 PM ColDougMcKnight: Mike's in the bathroom :-P

10:17:47 PM ColDougMcKnight: And has been for a while.

10:17:47 PM Jusstin Case: Ew.

10:17:50 PM Jusstin Case: Ew!

10:17:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: I saw talk of MGS4

10:17:53 PM ColDougMcKnight: :-D

10:17:55 PM Charity Suite: You're typing for him AGAIN?!?!?!

10:17:58 PM EnsRyanCarter: a game...which I haven't played.

10:17:59 PM ColDougMcKnight: I am!

10:18:02 PM Charity Suite: No!

10:18:05 PM Charity Suite: Stop!

10:18:05 PM ColDougMcKnight: Mwahahaha!

10:18:07 PM Jusstin Case: I've played music from it.

10:18:17 PM Charity Suite: Put an end to the tyranny!

10:18:20 PM ColDougMcKnight: NEVER!

10:18:27 PM EnsRyanCarter: Hideo Kojima's a brilliant guy, but he's also...insane.

10:18:30 PM Charity Suite: Don't let the man keep you down!

10:18:47 PM ColDougMcKnight: Mike says if you'd prefer, he could always just not play tonight :-P

10:18:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah, he's rather absorbed with his own convoluted story.

10:19:00 PM Charity Suite: Alexis was just saying how clever Mike was being ... I must tell her that it was Rachel.

10:19:10 PM ColDougMcKnight: Hah!

10:19:13 PM ColDougMcKnight: I'm CLEVER!

10:19:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: He's what would have happened if the writer of FF7 had forced three direct sequ- oh wait crappy movies.

10:19:34 PM Jusstin Case: I've got news for you, Glenn.

10:19:39 PM EnsRyanCarter: let's here it.

10:19:41 PM Jusstin Case: Most of the people here are also.

10:19:51 PM EnsRyanCarter: I'm not.

10:19:57 PM Charity Suite: Yes, yes you are.

10:19:57 PM Jusstin Case: Denial.

10:19:57 PM EnsRyanCarter: there I said it

10:20:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: what're you gonna do about it??

10:20:19 PM Jusstin Case: Pretend you didnt.

10:20:20 PM ColDougMcKnight: Kick ya in the nuts?

10:20:22 PM ColDougMcKnight: Repeatedly?

10:20:28 PM ColDougMcKnight: With steel-toed boots?

10:20:31 PM Charity Suite: There's NO way on thie earth that we would have been friends this long, Glenn, unless you were insane.

10:20:35 PM Charity Suite: *this

10:20:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: She has a point.

10:21:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: yeah, well... I stand by what I said. :)

10:21:25 PM Charity Suite: In your world, you're sane.

10:21:30 PM Charity Suite: That works for me.

10:21:46 PM EnsRyanCarter: In my world of gem dolls and megabinos

10:22:21 PM Charity Suite: That is a scary rabbit.

10:22:47 PM Jusstin Case: When do we get to the terabino?

10:22:51 PM Jusstin Case: Or the petabino?

10:23:07 PM Charity Suite: Gigabino!

10:23:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: as long as we don't ever get to the pedobino

10:23:17 PM EnsRyanCarter: I'm down with it.

10:23:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Still working on getting the wayward doctor over the technical hurdle of joining the chatroom

10:23:31 PM Charity Suite: The girls he likes are all legal age?

10:23:34 PM EnsRyanCarter: Doctor Who?

10:24:18 PM Charity Suite: I'm pretty sure that Alice wasn't of legal age when Albino started stalking her.

10:24:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: nope.

10:25:15 PM Charity Suite: There you go.  Pedobino.  Like Pedobear, but smaller.

10:25:21 PM Charity Suite: And no nouf

10:25:21 PM Jusstin Case: Collosobino.

10:25:25 PM Charity Suite: mouf

10:25:27 PM Jusstin Case: Quesobino.

10:25:31 PM EnsRyanCarter: Shadow of the Collosobino

10:25:40 PM EnsRyanCarter: now that would make a good video game.

10:25:44 PM Jusstin Case: I'd buy it.

10:25:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: I don't know if I would buy a PS3 for it.

10:26:20 PM Charity Suite: Do you have any idea how many independent crreators have made Albino-like toys for Sims 2?

10:26:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: hahaha, I bet there's a lot.

10:26:31 PM Charity Suite: I saw another site today with one.

10:26:38 PM EnsRyanCarter: there's also the Freezer Bunny that's in the fridge.

10:26:57 PM EnsRyanCarter: if you look in the freezer of the fridge, apart of the texture is a freezer bunny, I believe.

10:27:09 PM Charity Suite: I didn't know it opened.

10:27:09 PM EnsRyanCarter: I know cause some of the girls in our division have a freezer bunny stuffed animal.

10:27:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: you'll have to pause in mid animation when a sim is opening it

10:27:25 PM Charity Suite: Ahh.

10:27:32 PM Jusstin Case: That's awesome. :-)

10:27:42 PM EnsRyanCarter: there's a lot of other little injokes.

10:28:04 PM Charity Suite: I usually play with a custom fridge, so I'll have to put in a Maxis one.

10:28:33 PM Charity Suite: Steph just reloaded everything for her Sims 2 game.  :-)

10:28:48 PM EnsRyanCarter: how many gigs is that?

10:29:02 PM Charity Suite: I loaned her all the 'stuff' packs that someone sent to me.  :-)

10:29:08 PM EnsRyanCarter: hahaha

10:29:11 PM Charity Suite: Wow, I dunno.  Lemme look.

10:29:21 PM EnsRyanCarter: at least they're getting good use.

10:30:09 PM Charity Suite: The folder in My Documents is 2.54 gig

10:30:37 PM EnsRyanCarter: how big is the folder in your Program Files/EA/Sims2?

10:30:46 PM Charity Suite: Looking now

10:31:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: I finally started watching the DS9 I missed

10:31:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: a decade ago.

10:31:20 PM Charity Suite: 8.19 gig

10:31:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I've still yet to finish that series, Glenn.

10:31:39 PM Jusstin Case: Some of it's good.

10:31:40 PM Charity Suite: But that's without the Stuff packs installed.

10:32:08 PM Charity Suite: Just the game and the expansions up to Bon Voyage.

10:32:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: oh wow

10:32:17 PM Charity Suite: Steph has the rest of my stuff.

10:33:23 PM EnsRyanCarter: I haven't installed anything past Seasons

10:33:27 PM EnsRyanCarter: but I haven't played too much

10:33:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: and with Sims 3 looming

10:33:33 PM EnsRyanCarter: I might as well wait.

10:33:48 PM Charity Suite: Looming ... hasn't it been pushed back until November?

10:33:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: oh it has.

10:34:06 PM EnsRyanCarter: hmm...

10:34:10 PM EnsRyanCarter: well, then I guess I have longer to wait.

10:34:51 PM Charity Suite: Jason, do you want us to leave the chatroom and have Roxy make a new one?

10:35:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: She couldn't make a new one.

10:35:20 PM Charity Suite: Or have her make a random chatroom and we'll join her in that.

10:35:23 PM Charity Suite: Ahh.

10:35:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Still trying a few things.

10:36:08 PM EnsRyanCarter: well I'm playing a lot of Street Fighter 4

10:36:09 PM EnsRyanCarter: :)

10:36:16 PM EnsRyanCarter: so I do have something to play.

10:36:19 PM Charity Suite: Better than having Glenn make a randomly named chatroom.

10:36:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Oh god.

10:36:29 PM EnsRyanCarter: did you try Spore yet?

10:36:59 PM Charity Suite: No, I honestly forgot about it until I went to get my address book yesterday.  /sheepish

10:38:54 PM Jusstin Case: We forgive you.

10:39:08 PM ColDougMcKnight: Um...are we actually doing game tonight?

10:39:12 PM ColDougMcKnight: Just curious.

10:39:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, looks like we need to go ahead and get started. Roxy's still trying to get in.

10:39:55 PM ColDougMcKnight: Crap, and I just noticed the chatroom talk at the top of the screen. Now I feel like a jerk.

10:40:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We have just recovered Evaz's briefcase from the Ferengi.

10:40:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: He's quite glad to see the encryption intact and is on his way to sickbay to hopefully make use of the information.

10:40:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shore leave is over and everyone should be back aboard Atlantis.

10:40:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

10:42:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Alrighty then.

10:42:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:42:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:42:05 PM ColDougMcKnight: Mike: Yeah. Aren't you a little short for a storm trooper?

10:42:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:42:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: (Aw damn)

10:42:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (We're also not running for 90 minutes tonight because of the delay in getting started, shooting for an 11:30 stop.)

10:42:46 PM Jusstin Case: [Everyone must speak exactly 1.5 times faster than normal.]

10:42:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::to Case:: Would it be possible to make use of some of your medical equipment?

10:43:10 PM Jusstin Case: ::blinks::  Well, yes, but I don't have any medical equipment.

10:43:15 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::notices the mess of beads everywhere on the bridge::

10:43:15 PM Jusstin Case: We'd have to talk to the doctors about that.

10:43:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> It was a figurative "You."

10:44:01 PM Jusstin Case: Well ... I figure that we should go to sick bay.

10:44:04 PM EnsRyanCarter: Random Ensign> ::walks into the bridge and slips on the beads, makes the Wilhelm Scream::

10:44:06 PM Charity Suite: ::back down in SickBay, more than a little steamed about losing her Mardis Gras beads to some stupid Ferengi::

10:44:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::holding the briefcase quite tightly:: Shall we, then?

10:44:48 PM Jusstin Case: Coming with, Ryan?

10:45:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::in a shuttle inspecting the repairs to the hull::

10:45:06 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::thinks, someone should clean that up:: Yup, let's go. ::enters the TL::

10:45:41 PM EnsRyanCarter: Random Ensign> Oh god, my leg... I think...I think I pulled a muscle. ::lays down, sprawled on the bridge floor::

10:45:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::follows along::

10:46:02 PM Charity Suite: ::venting to a cute male nurse::  ... an' then Ah tripped ... no, no, Ah really did!  Ah knows what it looked like ...

10:46:35 PM ColDougMcKnight: M> ::Since McKnight was on the bridge last time I checked, he's probably manning the tactical console now, and clears his throat as the trio make to go::  Case, Ryan, I assume you'll be keeping both eyes open, and a security escort won't be necessary for non-Star Fleet access to ship's equipment?

10:46:39 PM Jusstin Case: [Hehehe.]

10:46:58 PM Jusstin Case: Hm?

10:47:08 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, certainly.  You can count on us, Colonel.

10:47:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::looks up, worried for a moment::

10:47:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Blackthorne to Busard.

10:47:40 PM Jusstin Case: Now that we're all here, what could possibly go wrong

10:47:41 PM Jusstin Case: ?

10:47:53 PM Charity Suite: (You didn't just ask that question ... )

10:48:03 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods, almost uncharacteristically acquiescent on the point.::  Good.  Well, see that my faith isn't mis-placed.  On your way then.

10:48:21 PM Jusstin Case: [:-D]

10:48:32 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::whispers to Case:: Now that we're all here what could possibly go wrong?

10:48:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Hiya T'Kirr)

10:48:46 PM TKirr: ((Whew, hi))

10:48:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: ( Hey T'Kirr)

10:48:59 PM Charity Suite: ::looks at the viewer, laughing at the Mardis Gras videos that someone brought back from vaycay::

10:49:06 PM Jusstin Case: ::whispers back:: No idea, but I'm sure it'll be a doosie!

10:49:10 PM Charity Suite: (whoops)

10:49:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: so where are we going again?

10:49:36 PM EnsRyanCarter: I wasn't paying attention earlier... ::was watching the ensign fall over::

10:49:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> To your doctors, I assume?

10:49:53 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Busard here. What do you need?

10:50:06 PM Charity Suite: Wow, lookit that one!  Ah bet *she* got lotsa beads!  ::laughing::

10:50:31 PM EnsRyanCarter: Random Ensign> ::sitting in the corner of the bridge, holding his knee and making some hissing noises::

10:51:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ These repairs look great, good as new. Are we ready to depart?

10:51:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: Computer, sickbay.

10:51:44 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Sure are! (provided that you don't notice that it's ACTUALLY JUST ALUMINUM SIDING)

10:52:02 PM EnsRyanCarter: Hmm... you know what... I don't know if I should go to sickbay with you guys...

10:52:28 PM EnsRyanCarter: since we didn't get Charity new shoes...and we lost all her beads... and I still have to get a physical.

10:52:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::eyes Carter::

10:52:58 PM TKirr: ((Don't ask.))

10:53:10 PM EnsRyanCarter: ((wb))

10:53:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Excellent , Commander. ::would totally notice the side of his ship looking like a house instead of a ship::

10:53:48 PM Jusstin Case: Fair point.

10:53:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: ...maybe she'll forget the last part.

10:54:02 PM Jusstin Case: I suppose we can call you if we need anything.

10:54:18 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Thank you sir. Anything else?

10:54:29 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::TL stops on sickbay's floor:: I'll take my chances. What could possibly go wrong?

10:54:37 PM Jusstin Case: Also true.

10:54:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Negative, Commander. Prepare for departure.

10:54:52 PM Jusstin Case: Doors to sickbay> ::go "fwoosh," with a southern accent::

10:55:11 PM Charity Suite: ::jumps and turns around at the 'fwoosh' (w) Turn that off!

10:55:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: Someone's going to have to fix those doors.

10:55:30 PM Jusstin Case: ::winning smile:: Hello, Charity!

10:55:49 PM Charity Suite: ::brilliant smile::  Jusstin!

10:55:54 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glances over:: Hello, Charity

10:55:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Aye, sir. ::Goes back to recalibrating old circuits, humming and being generally chipper as she does so.::

10:56:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Hello again.

10:56:03 PM Charity Suite: An' Ryan ... ::a little less enthusiastically::

10:56:34 PM Charity Suite: An' Mistah 'Shoot-Me-It-Don't-Matter'?

10:57:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Doctor. I would like to request treatment using the genetic sequencing I've outlined on this PADD.

10:57:42 PM Charity Suite: Treatment?

10:57:53 PM Charity Suite: ::blinks a few times and takes the PADD::

10:58:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::has conveniently decrypted it::

10:58:25 PM Charity Suite: Y'all are immortal, so y'say.  What treatment could y'all possibly need?

10:59:04 PM Charity Suite: An' Ah don' know 'bout doin' genetic treatment on human beans.

10:59:12 PM EnsRyanCarter: human beans?

10:59:29 PM Charity Suite: ::looks up::  You makin' fun o' mah accent?

10:59:37 PM EnsRyanCarter: Nope.

10:59:42 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::shakes head::

10:59:42 PM Jusstin Case: ::coughs::

10:59:48 PM Charity Suite: Didn't think so.  ::glare::

10:59:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Perhaps it's time to come clean.

11:00:03 PM Jusstin Case: Uh ... Ryan and I will be in the office, if you need us ...

11:00:11 PM Jusstin Case: ::backing away slowly::

11:00:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::pilots the shuttle back into the bay::

11:00:24 PM TKirr: ::sits on the Bridge, reviewing incoming reports from departments and spacedock::

11:00:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::still standing there looking at Evaz, can't wait to hear this::

11:00:55 PM Charity Suite: Come ... clean.  Is that a perverted kinda joke?

11:01:43 PM Jusstin Case: ::grabs Ryan's arm and whispers:: We can always pipe it through the comm system!

11:01:45 PM Charity Suite: Like ... y'all wawna git a vasectomy, so there ain't enny ...

11:02:13 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::getting pulled, whispers:: He's just getting to the good part

11:02:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> The genetic resequencing on that PADD should unravel my immortality.

11:02:28 PM Jusstin Case: (w) What the heck is so good about a vasectomy?

11:02:49 PM Charity Suite: ::looks at the PADD, then looks at Evaz::

11:03:17 PM EnsRyanCarter: Wait, so you want to die?

11:03:38 PM Charity Suite: Yer sayin' that if we do these here procedures, you's gonna die?

11:03:49 PM TKirr: ::adds a PADD to a stack and picks up another one, sighing softly::

11:04:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Not immediately, perhaps. But should they be successful, I will no longer be immortal and can die.

11:04:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::parks the shuttle and heads to the bridge::

11:04:53 PM Charity Suite: You sure about that?  Ah mean, you done tested these?

11:05:18 PM EnsRyanCarter: So if you know how to unravel immortality, then you also know how to become immortal?

11:05:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> What you see there is the result of research spanning the entire history of genetics. I'm rather sure.

11:05:37 PM Jusstin Case: All of genetics condensed onto one PADD?

11:06:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> I have intentionally omitted that line of thinking from my notes, Ensign. But I fear that it could be extrapolated.

11:06:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Not all of genetics, just research that has spanned the entire known history of it.

11:06:45 PM Jusstin Case: And that's why you were so worried when your case was stolen.

11:06:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> I have been at this task for some time.

11:07:18 PM Charity Suite: 'Fer some time' ... time don't mean ennythin' to y'all.

11:07:26 PM Charity Suite: Pardon mah thinkin'.

11:07:43 PM Charity Suite: So ... how do we test this here list?

11:07:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Though genetics has only been known to us for a few hundred years, I've been trying to find a way to become mortal for ... perhaps twenty five hundred.

11:08:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> That druidic ritual in Brittania didn't work either. ::smirks::

11:08:24 PM Charity Suite: Ah don't think mah boss is gonna say, 'Why shore, Charity, go ahead and wreak havoc on the known genetic existence on the Atlantis'.

11:08:44 PM Jusstin Case: [Well, I don't *see* her objecting. :-D]

11:08:52 PM Charity Suite: (This is true!)

11:09:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> The consequences of this will be limited to me.

11:09:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::arrives on the bridge, looking chipper:: Report.

11:09:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::eyes the beads everywhere:::

11:10:36 PM EnsRyanCarter: Random Ensign> ::still sitting on the bridge, holding his knee::

11:10:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Did Mardi Gras explode?

11:10:53 PM Charity Suite: ::scratches her head::  Ah don't know.

11:10:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: Random Ensign> ::wincing in pain::

11:11:18 PM Charity Suite: (Hey, why are my beads on the bridge if the Ferengi took them?)

11:11:35 PM EnsRyanCarter: (some of them got spilled when you caught the one I was holding)

11:11:41 PM Charity Suite: (Ahhh)

11:12:09 PM Charity Suite: This looks ... complicated.  An' messy.

11:12:24 PM TKirr: ::looks up from her PADD before adding it to the pile:: Repairs are coming along. We should be ready to leave soon.

11:12:30 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glances at the PADD in Charity's hand::

11:12:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Immortality is a system that doesn't want to be tampered with, I've found.

11:12:38 PM Charity Suite: 'Specially that part about where Ah take a chunk outta yer temporal lobe and throw in a banana peel ...

11:12:47 PM Jusstin Case: ::has since moved to the office, trying to scrounge up a boxful of beads to replace the ones given to the Ferengi::

11:13:19 PM EnsRyanCarter: I don't think that's what that... oh wait... it actually does say that... or am I just reading this wrong?

11:13:30 PM Charity Suite: ::winks at Ryan::

11:13:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::smirks::

11:14:18 PM TKirr: I'm awaiting Mr. Case's report on the guest scientist's situation.

11:14:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Have we recovered his stolen data?

11:14:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: Justin's the science guy.. ::looks around:: I wonder where he went. He should take a look at this too. I bet he could lend a hand.

11:15:13 PM TKirr: ::nods:: I've gathered that much. They should be in Sickbay right now.

11:15:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Have someone clean these beads up, someone could get hurt.

11:16:23 PM Charity Suite: Is there a room we can make perfectly, like, sealed fer this kinda procedure?

11:16:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The last thing the bridge needs is to turn into Bourbon Street.

11:16:37 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks up briefly::  I've already paged the janitor, sir.

11:16:37 PM TKirr: ::frowns down at them:: Aye, sir.

11:16:41 PM Jusstin Case: ::in the sickbay office, tapping away at the console::

11:16:59 PM EnsRyanCarter: like a clean room?

11:17:12 PM Jusstin Case: Aha! Excellent!

11:17:46 PM Jusstin Case: ::makes a few requisitions and returns to the rest of the group::

11:18:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Scruffy> ::shows up and cleans the beads:: Mmmmmhmmmm.

11:19:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> ::eyes Case::

11:20:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Sickbay+ Blackthorne to sickbay.

11:20:36 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::glances over at Case::

11:20:59 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, sorry.

11:21:05 PM Jusstin Case: ::coughs::

11:21:13 PM Jusstin Case: So, did I hear something about a clean room?

11:21:28 PM Charity Suite: Well ... clean is one thang.

11:21:40 PM EnsRyanCarter: yeah, need a sterilized room.

11:22:08 PM Charity Suite: But we's lookin' at some major genetic reconstrukshun on more'n half th' crew if this ain't contained.

11:22:33 PM TKirr: ((Ring, ring, Sickbay))

11:22:47 PM Charity Suite: 'Scuze me.  Phone

11:22:56 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Yeah?

11:23:04 PM Charity Suite: Er ...

11:23:12 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Yes?

11:23:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ Doctor, how is our guest?

11:23:34 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Thanks fer callin' SickBay

11:23:53 PM Charity Suite: ::looks behind her at the smug so-n-so::

11:23:53 PM Jusstin Case: ::pondering::

11:24:12 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Obnoxshus, why d'y' ask?

11:24:26 PM EnsRyanCarter: wait... genetic reconstruction for half the crew?

11:24:28 PM Jusstin Case: ::to Ryan:: Well, why don't we outfit a shuttle?

11:24:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ I was inquiring more about the status of his research than his personality.

11:24:49 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Ohhh.

11:25:08 PM Charity Suite: +T+ He's got a pow'rful lot o' ideas.

11:25:11 PM TKirr: ::sits listening, perking an eyebrow::

11:25:25 PM EnsRyanCarter: Well... most of those are sitting room only, not much space if you need to do some operating

11:25:34 PM EnsRyanCarter: if we had one of the runabouts, maybe.

11:25:46 PM EnsRyanCarter: This ship has a captain's yacht too...

11:25:47 PM Jusstin Case: Hm.

11:25:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ Please elaborate.

11:25:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: doesn't it...

11:25:59 PM Jusstin Case: You're right, it does!

11:26:01 PM Charity Suite: ::glares at the comm::

11:26:04 PM Jusstin Case: Brilliant idea, Ryan!

11:26:18 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Ah'd be happy to!

11:26:57 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Ah b'lieve he b'lieves that he kin cure hisself o' his curse o' immorality.

11:27:05 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Ah mean, immirtality.

11:27:14 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Y'know what Ah mean.

11:27:17 PM Jusstin Case: [::laughs::]

11:27:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ You mean he wants to die? (or wants to be come moral?)

11:28:02 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Maybe his retirement benefits are run out?

11:28:05 PM Jusstin Case: ::still to Ryan:: We could pull out the plush seats and cut-pile carpeting to give us some room and help make the environment more suitable for us.

11:28:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: Yeah that's totally doable. Could use the master bedroom as a recovery room too.

11:29:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> I assure you, this resequencing isn't contagious. This can only affect me. You lack the necessary genes.

11:29:26 PM EnsRyanCarter: I thought you were human though?

11:29:27 PM Charity Suite: ::rolls her eyes at Ryan and Jusstin as Evaz's lofty tone::

11:29:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ What do you make of his mental state?

11:30:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ensign, were I human, I would have died thousands of years ago.

11:30:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I am obviously something else.

11:30:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: *Evaz>

11:30:32 PM Jusstin Case: (m) Well, they say only the good die young.

11:30:32 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Oh, there's enough ego there fer three or four people, Suh.

11:31:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ I'm asking more about his mental capacity to make such a decision, not his ego.

11:31:58 PM Charity Suite: ::wonders why Blackthorne's asking her all the hard questions::

11:32:28 PM TKirr: ::frowns::

11:33:08 PM TKirr: ::shares a look with Blackthorne::

11:33:08 PM Charity Suite: +T+ Suh, AH don't really know him well enough to assess if he's sane.  Offhand, Ah'd say that he was a blithering idjit not ta wawna use his powers fer good rather than wawna die.

11:33:13 PM Jusstin Case: ::to Ryan:: I mean, once we're finished, the yacht would pretty much be unusable.

11:33:24 PM Charity Suite: +T+ But that's jus' mah opinion.  ::big smile::

11:33:25 PM Jusstin Case: But no matter!  It's all in the name of science, right?

11:33:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: oh yeah. For science.

11:34:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> Quarantine won't be necessary, as I said, these changes can only affect me, and with correct administration, would be confined to me.

11:34:34 PM EnsRyanCarter: You know, I hate to say it... but I think you'll have to prove it to the Captain.

11:34:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ ::raises eyebrows at T'Kirr:: I need to meet this man.

11:34:46 PM Jusstin Case: ::not ignoring Evaz, just so enthralled with the plans for the yacht that he's not entirely listening::

11:35:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: it's his ship after all and ::shrugs:: he does have to protect the crew.

11:35:16 PM Charity Suite: ::over her shoulder::  Yer shore a trustin' soul ... you shore y'all wawnt us ta help cure ya?

11:35:29 PM TKirr: ::cocks her head in an affirmative and stands, obviously planning to join him::

11:35:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evaz> I lack the medical equipment that's necessary.

11:36:42 PM Charity Suite: ::thinks that if there are three people in the universe who shouldn't be within a parsect of this procedure, it's the three clowns currently in SickBay::

11:37:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Suite+ Continue studying how we can assist him, and have him report to the Flag Office. Blackthorne out.

11:37:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:37:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:37:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:37:36 PM TKirr: ::pauses::

11:37:43 PM Jusstin Case: :pauses::

11:37:48 PM Charity Suite: ::paused::

11:38:47 PM Charity Suite: (I think we lost Mike and Rachel)

11:38:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: First off, congrats to McKnight and Busard for winning February's log of the month!

11:39:07 PM Charity Suite: Gratz!

11:39:26 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::paused::

11:39:33 PM EnsRyanCarter: congrats

11:39:34 PM ColDougMcKnight: Woo!  See, totally not completely out of it on account of the sick!

11:39:35 PM TKirr: Congrats!

11:39:35 PM Jusstin Case: Woo!

11:40:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'll have it up on the website shortly, though I'm moving apartments this week, so we'll see how long shortly is.

11:40:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Or I'll use one of those southern indicators of time, "Directly."

11:40:52 PM ColDougMcKnight: Still around Virginia though?

11:41:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah, just going to my own place.

11:41:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Five minutes from here.

11:41:09 PM ColDougMcKnight: Ah, nice.  Good for you.

11:41:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Internets should be installed on Thursday, so I'll be here next week.

11:42:17 PM EnsRyanCarter: cool beans.

11:42:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's all for this week, hopefully we have less technical difficult next time!

11:42:49 PM Jusstin Case: FYI, I'll be missing next week, 'cause of some school obligations. :-\

11:43:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Alright.

11:45:27 PM Jusstin Case: So ...

11:45:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Pie.

11:45:40 PM EnsRyanCarter: 3.14159

11:46:22 PM EnsRyanCarter: how's everyone been doing?

11:46:52 PM Charity Suite: I just lost some unknown amount of virtual money in a fast paced game or online poker

11:47:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Well as long as it's just internet money.

11:47:20 PM Jusstin Case: Woo?

11:47:23 PM TKirr: Trying to find a house, was out house hunting 14hrs today

11:47:35 PM TKirr: Well, not all that time, but was out... yeah.

11:48:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Got covered in snow and had to work 13 hours yesterday, since we were on generator due to a downed power line. Roads were too bad for half the staff to make it in.

11:48:45 PM Jusstin Case: I'm gonna head out, guys.  I have to be at work earlier than usual tomorrow.

11:48:49 PM TKirr: That's rough >_<

11:48:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And I lost my damn keys in the snow.

11:49:02 PM TKirr: Yeah I'm gonna crash, very tired. See you all next week, except for Case.

11:49:11 PM Charity Suite: We got about 14" of snow, but it's just really cold, now.

11:49:14 PM TKirr: Well snow melts... it'll turn up! =P

11:49:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's the idea, supposed to be 60 on Friday.

11:49:35 PM Charity Suite: Okay, good night guys.  Time for some sleeping.

11:49:39 PM Charity Suite: That would be nice.

11:49:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: G'night folks!

11:49:47 PM Jusstin Case: Ta ta!

11:49:52 PM TKirr: Night all!
