From: skroo yoo Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2000 01:01:42 -0700 >Skroo what did you call this type of wanker? A pokemon or some such? It was a three-tiered evolutionary stage. In rough form, from least as to greatest, we had: - Pokemon. Initial stage. With the ability to grasp simple concepts and interact in a rational manner with fully-eveolved Humans, it may bypass the next and rather dangerous stage of evolution, Tamagotchi. Pokemon are usually self-cannibalising (or, more accurately, self- asphyxiating, since their heads are usually firmly entrenched in their arses), but are capable of furthering their development - provided that they shut the fuck up, listen, and react with intelligence to their intended peers. - Tamagotchi. Constantly whining and bleeping for attention, it is usually ignored by fully-eveolved Humans (the state of peerage it normally wishes to attain), resulting in its ultimate starvation. This is an exceptionally tenuous stage of evolution for the Pokemon as its intended peers are less tolerant of its hare-brained spewings. The vast majority of Tamagotchi end up boxed in to their own little corner, apathetically observed by their intended peer group, bleeping unto themselves until their batteries die. Interestingly, if you give a Tamagotchi enough rope, there is a 99.9738% chance that it *will* hang itself. - Fully-evolved human. This is a person (note the use of the direct reference to humanity itself) who is capable of entering into an argument, and rationally responding to others' points of view without the need for petty and puerile insults. Occasionally, the odd freak may slip by on the evolutionary ladder, and, almost inevitably, it is berated back to Tamagotchi status by the Humans. And that's my Pokemon/Tamagotchi/Human evolution assignment. - By skrooyoo, age 26.
