    A Cure for Hubris [Welcome to Innsmouth]

    You are a SCIENTIST.

    You and your lab assistant have been tasked to find a CURE FOR HUBRIS.



    After months of backbreaking SCIENCE MONTAGES, you think you have finally done it!



    You cured HUBRIS ITSELF. You are quite proud. You fail to see the irony in this.



    Like any reasonable man of science, you forego all testing and drink it yourself.



    You are now the lab assistant, you have to call the president.

    "Mr. President, we're fucked. Its-"

    Re: Cure for Hubris

    The cure turned the scientist into a perfection nut. Bereft of the emotion of pride, he has honed his mind, body, and spirit to the limits of human capability, and has turned his sights on becoming even better by converting other human beings into biological data storage such that he might become as smart and powerful as the whole of the human race combined.
    I hereby acknowledge that any of the preceeding words might possibly be nonsensical, insane, illogical, or just plain weird.

    Mr. President. . . It's terrible. . . Too terrible. . . The Cure, sir. Yes, it works, let me finish sir. It works. . . But *gasp* it tastes like old milk sir! I'm so sorry.

    Yes. . . We had to put him down. It tasted that badly.

    "ZOMBIES! THE CURE IS ZOMBIES!"



    President: My god, what have we done?!
    Assistant: No, Mr. President, God is dead. We killed him.

    You are promptly eaten by the ZOMBIE SCIENTIST.



    You are now the SUAVE ACTION PRESIDENT. You hang up your science emergency hotline.
    Its time to take action, you reach for the PRESIDENTIAL SHOTGUN you keep under your desk.



    You pump the shotgun in a badass manner, ejecting an unspent round!

    Pick up that unspent shell. That's your Emergency Shell To be saved for the worst of zombies - or heaven forbid, offing yourself when the End Is Nigh.

    The world outside is explosions. Good, that means everything is under control, and the 'Just Blow it Up' protocols have been enacted.

    "Its time to give these zombies the worst case of indigestion they've ever had."

    Pick up that unspent shell. That's your Emergency Shell To be saved for the worst of zombies - or heaven forbid, offing yourself when the End Is Nigh.

    You pick the shell up off the desk and stow it safely in your pocket. Never know when you might need to off yourself!
    You hear screaming, YOUR FAMILY!

    Suave Action President ==> Ensure the safety of your Loving Wife & Child.


    You run down the halls of the Whitehouse until you reach the last door between you and the screaming.
    You kick it down and shoot the first thing you see moving right in the chest.
    OH MY GOD!-
