CA: You almost hit me with that toilet.
CA: The one you tossed through my window.
CA: The window that doesn't open.
CA: It destroyed my ferret habitat
CA: And blocked the door.
CA: There are ferrets running everywhere.
CA: I think Spike is actually INSIDE one of my computers.
CA: That can't be healthy.
CA: But more importantly, I can't get to the alchemiter and time is really getting kind of short here. I would appreciate it if you could move it into my room here so I could not die.
CA: Are you there?
CA: I swear, if I die because you are LARPing Order of the Phoenix again, we're not going to be friends anymore.

CA: Michael! I require your always valuable assistance in this, my time of greatest need.
CG: Bro you know I got you. Whatchoo need, some ill rhymes?
CA: While I normally would never turn down the opportunity to be floored by the mad lyrics you articulate so poignantly, this might not be the time.
CA: I'm rather sure that I am about to die.
CG: Well if you're sure, what the hell can I do?
CA: I might be a goner, but the forum can live on. Tynic is going to connect to you through the game I sent you, and get you out of harm's way, but first I need you to do something.
CA: Last time I was out there, for the Great MidWestern Hip Hop Battle and Chili Cookoff, I installed a forum control panel next to your computer
CA: There's a bunch of buttons that do things like lock threads and ban users and stuff. Then there's a green one labeled FORUM BACKUP. It makes a backup of the database and puts it on a floppy.
CG: What's up with this red button? I find it alluring.
CA: OH GOD whatever you do don't press that button!
CA: It randomly deletes one subforum.
CG: Why the hell does a button like that exist even?
CA: In case things ever got out of hand, we can use it to relieve the pressure. Like that thing in LOST.
CA: So just stay away from that one
CG: Did Cindy ever fill you in on my habit of asking what things are once I've already pressed them? eg. buttons
CA: What? NO. Don't tell me that you pressed it.
CG: Look why would you even colour a button red if you didn't want it to be touched
CG: Red is the colour of things you are meant to be pawing at, like ripe apples or fire alarms
CA: I have to see this.
CA: Oh god, you destroyed the general chat forum.
CA: We're boned. I know it.
CG: Would it help if I pressed the red button a second time? Like, maybe it would delete the deleted forum, which would bring it back. You know? Like a double delete?
CA: ghf43yhnm ht
CA: Do you see what you've made me do? I'm literally smashing my face into my keyboard.
CA: Just don't touch anything.
CA: Forget about the backup. I'm gonna try to find a way to get to that alchemiter.
CA: If I die...
CA: If you ever meet Gwenyth Paltrow...tell her I always loved her.
CG: You got it.
