Luki's Avatar is supposed to be an Androsynth Guardian.

Which is in and of itself a pun, since the Avatar is a Chmmr Ship and thus the act of saying that Luki's Avatar is an Androsynth Guardian and not an Umgah could lead to further confusion.

Or, HAR HAR HAR.

Forgive me if my humor seems a bit sarcastic and dry tonight. My progesterone levels are up.

Actually, I always thought *enjoy the sauce* meant something more like "Be happy with life" or "Enjoy happiness".

Yeah, as cute as the Orz are, their language isn't so much abstract as it is just a perfectly understandable foreign language. Replace their phrases with specific equivalents and you have a perfectly comprehensible race.

Dancing being 'ship to ship combat'
Frumple being 'pissing us off'
Happy campers being 'friendly aliens'
Happy fun slide being 'Quasi Space Portal'

Then again, if the Orz language truly WERE utterly abstract and incomprehensible, you wouldn't have as much fun or have the slightest idea how to deal with them.

I mean if you encountered them and instead of saying, "Do Happy Campers want to come to our House to make Alliance Parties?" they said something like, "Blue bubbles shout now people fast! Doors laugh other time scratch delicious??  Dry circle so cold bird sponges fingertips!!!!" you wouldn't so much smile (or in my case squeal appreciatively) as you would just stare at the screen with an irritated expression.

I meant at the FF PR3 level--but then, writing is funny, it triggers things whether people intend it or not.  I just thought of the song is all--they didn't come out similar times did they?  Or did the song maybe predate the game?  

And yes, the Orz language is very cute, by the nicknames and quotes people use in this forum I'd say you werent' the only one to enjoy it.

Not being a medical student, I'm somewhat confused by the term progesterone. I know testosterone which makes you agressive, and pheromones that make my head spin, but what's that one?

Do Umgah have twisted humour though? I mean, to me they seem more like clumsy, heavy handed practical jokers. Their practical jokes are on another scale, sure, but HAR HAR BIG WAVES and the like sem a bit blunt and unsophisticated to me. I imagine that the Ilwrath humour is probably a lot more twisted, like slipping acid into your broodpartners  gestation sacs and laughing while praising D&K.

So, no, I din't consider myself Umgah. I'm an Androsynth on the Edge, driven insane by the fate of my race

Despite all of your reasoning, I still see you as a blobbie.

Progesterone tends to peak on a monthly basis for females.
I take supplements because I produce less than normal.
Without supplements, my behavior at certain times is much less severe than most females.
With supplements, my behavior is twice as...pronounced...as most females.

Good enough?

Yeah, now that just does wonders for a guys self-esteem doesn't it. It's right up on par with "I like you as a friend"... I think of you as a blobbie...

I get parts of that, but define less severe... In what ways?

Less severe as in, I am only slightly irritable?

More severe as in, absolutely everything anyone says comes off as an insult, even something as harmless as 'Good morning!' and I want to eviscerate anything male, I guess.

Hmm. A Kohr-Ah on her monthly cycle. The ZotFotPik don't stand a chance.

Nor does anyone else... Why would you want to be more severe?

I don't *want* it to be more severe, you know. It's just a side effect of the corrective medication I take to supplement my substandard levels of female hormones.

No worries, I'm finished for this month.
