A: I know right? I get like that sometimes too.

B: ….What are you talking about?

C: Oh please you’re a computer simulation, you don’t have feelings. Here, I can say whatever I want and it won’t matter. Bomb the president! See? No NSA swooping down on me.

B selected

Player: “….What are you talking about?”

Shaleen: “I know. I know. It’s weird, and I don’t fully understand it, but there have been things that I just can’t explain. Like you know the insanely high crime rate? We’ve got 10 times the murder per capita rate of any city in the country and people still decide to live here.”

A: Aww, you look so cute when you use big phrases like ‘per capita’

B: I know right? Like sometimes I feel like I’m not controlling myself. You know what I did the other day?

C: Well, this is an exotic location. We’ve got mountain lions, orcas, loads of beach front property. I think if you know the risks it isn’t that bad.

C selected.

A: I saw this guy driving down the street in this nice car, and something just came over me. I felt the uncontrollable urge to just throw him out of the car, and I did it. It was like I couldn’t control my own arms and legs. He got hit by a car after I threw him out and drove off. It still scares me to think about it.

B: I totally punched this orca in the face.

C: Got a date with the cutest girl in the city 😉

Shaleen: “Oh my gosh, that’s horrible. My friend told me just the other day something similar happened to him. We need to do something about it.”

A: I know just what to do.

B: You didn’t think I’d figure it out player?

C:I’m done
