Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl.
There are only fake geek boys.
Science fiction was invented by a woman.

Specifically a teenage girl. You know, someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these boys are violently rejecting.

Isaac Asimov.

yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you kinda get my point

being a pizza delivery driver is great because literally no one is disappointed to see you

image

except when you have to pay your own gas, it’s raining, and very few people tip you, and the ones that do take a $19.35 pizza and hand you a $20 and say “keep the change.” 63 CENTS IS NOT A TIP! A DELIVERY FEE IS NOT A TIP! Thats when it sucks to be a pizza delivery driver.

I’m convinced my father occasionally uses my Netflix profile to watch disney movies, because every few weeks in the “Watch Again” scroll a disney movie I haven’t watched in years pops up.

Carlos is in the invisible and constantly moving cock tower. He is unfindable, because Nightvale showed him the clock tower, and how to get in, now he’s inside, gathering forces, and making plans to take back the town. Old woman Josie and her angels are inside. Big Rico, is definitely supplying the clock tower with food (probably 100% frozen pizza, as he had like 1 gavial lion imperial tonnes of the stuff, and now it’s ‘outlawed’) the pack of roving ‘carrier bags’ are causing mischief for strex all over the town. Like they’ll damage something minor, and then immediately move on. The billboards have started popping up again, always in the right place to get directly in the way of strex, and to help the clock tower crew escape from some such mission. The library definitely steals strex employees, and dumps them into the dark reference sections of the library’s basement floor, that still has a few twisted and feral librarians wandering about. The glow cloud is actually helping the clock tower crew find the clock tower.

Just I hate strex. I want them gone. I want to wade straight into Nightvale with weapons flashing and put Strex through a blender. And feed them all to sharks.

You cannot make me believe StrexCorp is anything else but this:

Look around you: Strex.
Look inside you: Strex.
Go to sleep: Strex.
Believe in a smiling god.
StrexCorp. It is everything.

They’re watching.
