D - A Terrorist Freedom Fighter
We watched as the corporations slowly took over every facet of our lives, monetizing our most intimate information, grinding down every right given to us and spitting out whoever wasn't profitable enough.
Unlike the others we didn't keep our head down, we picked up a gun, downloaded the anarchist cookbook and went to fight.
After a stint in corporate prison we are now back home, ready to take the fight to the mega corps again.

A/DReligion is a balm in times of trouble, and we've been a lifelong believer. But while religion might be the opiate of the masses our background in 'security' let us find ecclesiastical information the church would rather be kept hidden. Already on the fence we created a new persona and joined the cloth. The plan: take it down from inside.

They're probably watching our home, but check it out anyway, see if we can scavenge anything.

Then maybe bribe some dipshit to go ask for the windows, see if he get's black bagged.

Do NOT identify ourselves as the previous tenant at this stage. There is nothing to be gained and probably much to be lost by sharing that information for no reason.

Might be better option to see what general theme the thread wants if we go the upgrade route. I think our set up is great, but we need more boom. Personally I want an arm that fires emp grenades or a leg mounted rocket launcher or a dick gun. Something classy.

First off, you can call me Bojangles, Mr Bojangles.

Secondly, A, you can scan and examine my augs, give me a readout, adjustment options and keep a copy for your records. But all under the assumption that you understand my employer has the wherewithal to outfit me with all of this, and so you realise they have a very focused interest in hanging onto their intelectual property and it would be inadvisable to take advantage of either myself or that information.

Thirdly, I need an integrated dick gun, neuro linked and independent of my current system.

I remember going back to college and being busy busy busy for the first few weeks of the semester, ahhhh good times.

And then apathy sets in when you realize there's no functional difference between getting 90% and 50% on any given course until third year?

CourValant posted:

Don't you need at least a 70% to pass?

Also, I can related. For all of 1st year and most of 2nd year, I was rather focused on getting that 90%.

Then I realized I was actually missing out on much of the college experience, so I traded my quest for 90% for a solid 70% and a life outside of books.

I don't regret it.

For us we needed a 50% to pass each class. I was a solid ~55% student until third year and pulled it up to ~65% which is what I needed to enter the honors program where I got 1st class honors.

There's a difference between 'good' work, and work that's 'good enough'. If you're doing anything more than 'good enough' you're wasting your time.

It might be that you want to impress a professor to get into their grad program or whatever, and then you need a higher grade but again, working any harder than is needed to achieve that goal is just wasted effort.

That said, I waste way too much time getting things perfect when they don't need to be, so eh.
