Electronics are fucking dangerous....

Just... you know. F-Y-I.


Ahem!
Now... ahh... I guess I should send an apology to Raggedy here... I... don't know that my "plan" is actually going to work out. Or perhaps rather, I'm afraid of how effective it could be and I don't want to drop the tech in the wrong hands on accident...

I... <.<;

I had to test it first.

Umm... it.... sort of works. I think...

And I reeeeeeeeeeeeally don't want to talk about it now. My head is still fucking spinning and I feel like I'm going to be absolutely fucking sick.

But I guess I need to explain... uugghhh... I could just not be posting this! Whhhhhhhyyyyyy am I stupid and doing it anyways?? Stupid scientific need to report findings! >.<;;;


Ugh... so I went into like, a radio shack, okay? It wasn't really a radio shack, it wasn't a chain store at all, but if I gave you the regular name you wouldn't know what the fuck I'm talking about, so lets pretend it was a radio shack. Okay? Okay. So I go in there and pick up some cheap electronics supplies and this little junior practice kit type dealie... just bottom barrel tech, but good enough for me to work with... Engineer remember? Pretty sure I mentioned that at some point....

Anyways, when I haven't been on the move lately I've been fiddling around with this junk trying to put together a small mobile device for personal use. I don't have a proper name for it.... so I'm just gonna make one up on the fly I guess.... it's a.... ahhh.... Filter.... Jammer.... yeah, how about that? Filter Jammer. Basically just a handheld device running off a double-A battery that emits an extremely high pitch alternating frequency designed to disrupt local wavelengths and frequencies. It's got a range of... barely a fucking meter probably... I've no way of knowing for sure without testing it on the public and that reeeeeeeeally doesn't seem like a good idea... especially now that I know it- .....uuuggghhh....

Okay...
So...
I finally gave this thing a little trial run.... Nothing special. I just went about my business as usual, keeping to the crowds and knowing damn well that he'd show up somewhere eventually. Because that's what he does. He just pops up places. He's the Starbucks of the monster world. He's on every gods damned corner. So whatever, I finally notice him as I'm passing through a crowd. So I duck into a corner outside of major traffic, pull out the device, and flick the On switch. Again, I wasn't sure the range, so I just held it up to my ear like I was on a cellphone or something... try to look natural. Then I just kind of kept staring at it.

Three minutes of this... and he started to blur. About five minutes and I started to see shit flailing about that I don't remember seeing a minute ago. By thereabouts the seven minute mark, I don't know what I was looking at anymore and I have no means of accurately describing it to you. All I know is that my mind was SCREAMING AT ME and

...I might have blacked out for a while.

I'm not sure. All I really know is that by the time my vision blinked me back to awareness I was sitting on the ground and it was gone. I used a nearby trash can to pry myself off the ground and promptly threw up in it. I haven't exactly felt well since then.

So... yeah... I may have created a short range device that can override Perception Filters. I thought that would be a good thing.... now I'm not so sure.... It's... going to require more testing... but... I think I'm afraid to use it again. Not... not like that anyways.

  2. -keels over laughing-

    Okay, so let me get this straight. You put some wires and pieces of techy shit together, basically wound it all up in duct tape, and you get something that HURTS you? Who did NOT see this one coming? Fucking idiot.

    You have something maybe possibly useful, that's more dangerous than it is practical. Good job, Gargoyle. What are you going to do next time, stick metal in an electrical socket and wonder if you're going to get shocked?!

    1. I've done that before actually.... Waking up on the wrong side of the room is an interesting experience.

    2. I'd like to at least point out I was under the age of ten during that "experiment."

      Oh... and fun fact! Sticking a key in an electrical socket is actually perfectly harmless. TWO keys on the other hand....

    3. Why on earth are you still breathing? Are you appointing yourself to be the //Test Dummy// of the Fearverse? I mean, fuck, where's whitelight when you need him..

  3. My advice, make another one and give it to someone you don't like. See where they go when you pass out.

    1. I hate you less for this suggestion.

    2. It's educational and spiteful.

  4. You know, the Perception Filter might not be for his convenience, but for ours. It might be that, you know, seeing what the Slender Man actually looks like would be bad. Really bad.

    Just sayin'.

    1. In this particular case, I'd say you're probably absolutely right.

  5. Gargoyle I think you're one of the few people on this thing that gets in more trouble than me, damn you. :)

    1. Yes... and thank you for helping me along with that. I am totally blaming my current headache on you.

  6. Three items of advice to consider:

    1: Never look DIRECTLY at the monster. It opens up a pathway to your brain it can follow and mess up your perceptions with. You want to always try to look a little bit away from the thing, and learn to watch it with your peripheral vision. This tactic will lead to less insanity and head pain.

    2: As you have just discovered, looking at something that exists on at least seven dimensions attempting to fit into a three dimensional shape is like hitting yourself on the head with a crowbar: BAD IDEA. This is not to say that having something that disrupts perception filters isn't useful. It IS however to say that you have to find a way to make it useful. Lord knows that this will let you see things that IT ordinarily can hide.

    3: Stop being logical. The scientific method is a wonderful thing, but going up against something as supremely illogical as this using a logical mindset is like walking into a charging bull. Unless your logic is dictated by a combination of String Theory and Scooby Doo, you will NOT survive. Adjust your logic with the following fact: Page theory dictates that the only rules it follows are the ones you create for it to follow, and even then, it will adapt to your rules and destroy them as the creature's feeding process moves forward. It's fairly likely that your jammer might just plain stop working someday soon...and then start working when you put a tiny American Flag on it. Logical? Not at all. Likely? Oh yes.

    1. Just wanted to note I'm taking all of this into consideration. Thank you.

      though so people would probably argue with you that I stopped being "logical" a long time ago... XP I was hoping to counter that argument with this, but I believe I fucked that up somewhere...

  7. ... Aren't you the interesting one.

    A bit of advice? If it's not your place to see something, then you're simply not mean to see it. After all, it would be an awful shame if you died doing something like this, hm?

    Who knows? Maybe you'll even prove useful. Even the Mongrel had his uses.

    1. I'm stumbling over that last bit... There's a reference being made there that my mind refuses to piece together. Damnit Free, why did I let you convince me to turn on anonymous commenting? This is all David's fault. Ugh!

      Whatever. I'll try not to die being that stupid again so I can keep being interesting... happy? XP

    2. ....isn't that a blog title?

      Delete
    3. Hm. Ironically I believe it is. But I never read that one, so I've no idea if it actually relates to the same David or if that's just funny coincidence.

  8. Was it your intention when you started this experiment to override that particular filter?

    I can't imagine why you'd want to take a gander at his 'true form'...

    1. It wasn't really.
      I just had this notion that there was probably a filter of some kinda around him... after all, nobody else in the street could see him at all, so there had to be Something. I just didn't really take the time to consider what I was doing I guess...

      I suppose it would have been easier to just drop it at his feet and wait to see if people walking nearby started screaming or not. But that didn't seem like a very bright idea either...

  9. Heh, you are just trying so hard to be productive. I can appreciate that, but trying to look beyond his projected form: not a good idea under the best of all possible circunstances. Of course, you aren't even in the best of all possible circumstances, are you. Maybe put a little more effort to actually staying alive.

    See you around

    1. Hey. I'll have you know, I am very much actually alive. So clearly I am doing an excellent job of staying that way.

      Keeping myself healthy and undamaged however... That seems to be a difficulty I'm having.
