I'm Only Going to Say this Once, The Deadline Has Been Moved

I want you all to pay attention. I have your 'friend' immobilized. I hold the cards here. I want to be entertained. If I get bored, I'll finish up my 'business' and leave. So, when I say something, I want an actual answer. No BS, no tricks, and certainly no deals. If I say 'dance,' you had better dance. Or else we'll find out how successful a 'Runner' is when he has no legs. Give me an answer, or he'll lose both legs, and one of his arms. I'd decide quickly if I were you, I'm not very patient.

And 'scientist', I want to know how much trauma you think the human body can take. We'll compare it to my 'patient.' And if you don't know, I'll be glad to pass along my data. Don't be afraid to ask.

  2. And so, she made a choice! He will lose an arm. I haven't had this much fun for some time now.

  3. And now the moment you've all been waiting for! Operation begins in 10 minutes. Here's some soothing operation music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vr0amOKCHo

  4. I'd rather you didn't remove an arm. They're so hard to replace.

    How much trauma can a person take? Mentally or physically? What type are you referring to?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Both. Mainly the physical. I have...other plans for after the operation.

    1. Operation postponed. For a little while. I want to hear this.

  6. Hmm. Well, physical. This is tricky since people are a strange mix of fragile and tough as hell. One tap in the right place and they're down, or fill them full of lead and they can still walk. It varies depending on the individual too.

    In the broad sense, a person can survive 6 minutes without air before their brain starts to die. Cold temperatures increase this time; there is the case of a woman who fell into an iced over river and was found 40 minutes later, frozen solid. They thought she was dead until they thawed her and they began to breathe again.

    Speaking of cold, in freezing water 20 minutes is generally the longest you can go before you are unable to swim anymore.

    1. Speaking of water, it generally takes 8 to 14 days to die of thirst, not the generally accepted three. After three it may feel like you're dying, though. This also depends on the heat. At noon in the midst of a desert, survival times can drop to a few hours.

    2. On to blood loss. A person can remain functional with up to 33 per cent of his blood missing. 40 per cent is the amount that the body can no longer compensate for.

    3. Poisons. Ohhhh, there are so many of these. They're the maxim 'everything in moderation' in action; anything can be poisonous at a high enough dose. They work via various mechanisms; snake venoms, for example often contain enzymes which degrade tissue, causing the effected flesh to begin to dissolve. Carbon monoxide attaches to haemoglobin irreversibly, rendering it useless and causing the victim to suffocate.

    4. Sarin, now, sarin's been in the news, lately. That fluorine group covalently binds to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine esterase, preventing it from deactivating acetylcholine. Without this deactivation, it builds up, and the nerve goes from recieving pulses of the stuff to being always on. Hence the muscle spasms caused by it. Interestingly, it also ramps up saliva production, resulting in frothing at the mouth.

      Delete
    5. Mustard gas is one of my favourites, because of how it works. Each chlorine group disassociates, and the resulting sticky ends bind to each side of a replication fork in the cell's DNA, preventing it from replicating further. Since the cell is 'stuck', it dies, and can't be replaced as that would require replication of another. Naturally, cells that divide the most are going to be the most effected, so hair, skin and the gut lining.
      This property is actually used in the less toxic cyclophosphamide, an anticancer drug, since cancer cells are fast replicating and so preferentially affected.

    6. Going back outside of poisons a little, because otherwise I would be up here all day with a whiteboard and laser pointer and you'd probably get a full course of how enzymes work.

      Blunt force trauma is tricky. It can kill years after the injury was sustained. If the spleen, basically the body's spare blood store, is ruptured that will be fatal if not treated. A strike to the head causes damage to the brain as it impacts with the skull, sometimes fatal damage. No numbers for the precise forces of these exist, due to the variation of survivability being too wide.

    7. Well, excuse you! This stuff is interesting!

      If you want answers, to another question, ask.

      Delete
    8. No by all means go on. I'm sure my patient finds it interesting. Or at least he will. if he survives. Plus, it's distracting you from another crisis.

      Delete
    9. You have the most impeccable timing, Douchenozzle. Seriously, how long have you been planning this?

      Besides, the whole point was for something to entertain you. No point if it's not doing that.

      Delete
    10. Oh, I'm entertained. There are his screams, and fear. Mixed with the reactions from all of you. Plus the choice that was made earlier. And I've planned this since I first came across him.

      Delete
    11. nlh.jkg,hvfkvbmhbghvvbnbcgmhvg,

      Oh yes. I'll just bet we're entertaining. Holding all the cards is always fun, isn't it? Having power over people... now that's a heady sensation.

      ...it's surprisingly hard to have a threatening voice over text. Oh, well. I'll spell it out.

      Take care you don't end up in a similar position. Even vicariously, I'll enjoy every minute of you getting tit for tat. I'm always looking for new test subjects.

      Delete
  7. And so, more ideas are formed!

    1. I feel like you're stalling for time.

    2. I'm trying to answer your question to the best of my ability. You wanted a comprehensive answer, you're getting a comprehensive answer. I can't type at instant speeds.

      Delete
    3. Tell me then: are you planning on a certain "fairy's" intervention? Because if so, know this: he's currently dealing with a situation in Egypt.

      Delete
    4. While it would have been nice, no I'm not counting on it. I see you got the email, then.
      Is said situation your doing, or did you simply take the opportunity?

      Delete
    5. Email? I don't have the password to that. I wish I did, it would make all this more interesting. And yes, the situation is my doing.

      Delete
    6. I have to wonder. Are you a Proxy? Do you have a grudge against Carter or is he simply another target?

      Delete
    7. Proxy: not answering. Grudge: yes. And before you ask: I already have another target. Two in fact.

      Delete
    8. What's your name? Or at least a suitable moniker to be known by.

      Delete
    9. Tell you what: I'll let you choose.

      Delete
    10. >: D That's kind of a dangerous thing to say to someone. You could end up being forever known as Douchenozzle. http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=001902

      How about Incitatus? I'm not good with names.

      Delete
    11. Then pleasure to meet you, Incitatus. Or not, as the case may be.

      Delete
    12. I think I'm gonna just take your suggestion and call him douchenozzle :)

      Delete
    13. Honestly, it doesn't bother me. I've left the need for a name long ago. Besides, you have other things to do, like worrying about a scared little girl. Now, off to operate.

      Delete
    14. What equipment are you using to do so?

      Delete
    15. A camera, tape recorder, scissors, baseball bat, kitchen knife, azoth, lemon juice, and tweezers.

      Delete
    16. Hmm. Since I apparently can't stop you.

      Make the first cut through the skin between the shoulder and elbow. You'll then want to slice through the brachial artery in one clean cut. That will cause it to spasm, reducing the risk of death via blood loss. In fact, a tourquinet applied beforehand would also help in this regard. If you have thread, tie the artery shut while you work.

      Getting through the bone will be tricky without a bonesaw. Is the knife serrated? Once through, another clean cut should remove the muscle on the other side. Sand down any sharp edges of the bone, and cauterise the wound. Disinfect it and leave it to drain of fluids before sewing it shut.

      Delete
    17. Thanks for the advice, but I have my own plan. This day has been long in its coming.

      Delete
  8. Well, the attention seekers are always hardest to deal with. Do what they say and they walk all over you. Ignore them, and they'll start hacking off body parts until /someone/ pays attention.

    So how about upping some stakes? I'll play. And believe me, you want me to play. But right now there are only sticks. You're going to have to throw in a carrot or two.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Oh, I'm going to remove an arm. Believe me. He deserves it.

      What stakes are we talking about?

      Delete
    2. Oh, we can start simple and go from there. Must be so boring holding all the cards.

      Let's start with a question for a question, hm?

      Although fair enough warning, I'm going to start playing for kept body parts soon enough. Though naturally I'll make it worth your time.

      Delete
    3. Shoot away. But be warned, I'll only spare 20 minutes, I do have a schedule to keep!

      Delete
    4. Well, that brings about the first question.

      Are you being facetious, or do you seriously have something you need to do in twenty minutes?

      Delete
    5. I obviously have an operation to perform. You're not very bright, are you?

      Delete
    6. Taking that as a question. I have been told I'm very low on common sense. Of course there are some things I do know. Like how to perform an amputation without having the person bleed out. I guess we'll see if you have such knowledge.

      Delete
    7. If he bleeds out, it's his problem. Not mine.

      Delete
    8. Oh, if I had to deal with you back in my old days I would have taken you head off. No respect for the art of torture.

      But hey, it will be better for him that way.

      Time for another question I think.

      Who are your other targets?

      Delete
    9. Oh, I'll spare the time for this. The two are people who my 'patient' has talked to. One of them I have talked to. The two know each other well, which will be a lot of fun!

      Delete
    10. Vague answers beget vague answers. You'll gain nothing if you skirt around things like that.

      And I know what you're going to say to that of course. That you don't need anything. You already have him after all.

      But if that was all you wanted, you wouldn't have posted it on this blog. Wouldn't have been so pushy about getting answers.

      So have some guts. Give me names.

      Delete
    11. Nope, I'll wait for her to realize it herself. When she does: she'll probably post something.

      Delete
    12. Oh you poor thing.

      This is going to turn out very badly for you.

      Delete
    13. Oh, have we realized the targets?

      Delete
    14. Let's be realistic. Without you telling, the odds of me knowing are slim.

      But I've got a hunch. And if it's right...

      Well, then that brings up a whole lot of questions.

      Such as: What are you trying to get out of this?

      Delete
    15. Well, that changes things.

      Congratulations, you've made me want to help you. And I don't mean I'm going to help with the torture.

      Justice and revenge are two very different concepts. And either one can backfire terribly.

      Are you certain this is the path you want to take? There is never just one option.

      Delete
  9. Well, I've wasted enough time. Check one of the blogs under his 'other blog' page I'll leave a post on one of the target's blogs. The other will hopefully realize, that she's the second one.

    3. He's annoying, but I don't think he's that annoying.

  10. Aw...the poor little tormentor has grown bored? That's why it's referred to as "15 minutes of fame". You're just so...predictable.

    Attention seekers like you are so boring, because you act based on your narcissism.

    Also, if you kill Carter, I will make sure to kill you slowly.
