Makes me think of that one question, about whether you'd rather have the pleasure of an experience, or the anticipation of the pleasure.



But isn't that quit obvious?

Where a pleasure of an experience is a reward in it's own the anticipation of a pleasure is a whole other reward.

Savor the duality in it and embrace both circumstances to the maximum.
For as an experience is fleeting so is the road towards it diminishing.

I could only answer your question if I had the notion of linear time flow which I have lost since long ago for higher purposes.
I'll tell you though, that fitting my mind set, when I antecipate the pleasure I'm already having the pleasure and anticipating it again until there is only pleasure to pleasure the anticiaption and there we go through all the logic of it.

I don't like much the art or science of choosing Miss Shintoko. When several options pleases me I tend to claim all of them.

Not a bad philosophy, but not always possible. There are always paths in front of us, always alternatives. Some of them lead to the best of things, while others to the best we can get. The trick, of course, is to perceive which is which.

Being who I am it's obvious that I'm gifted with the perception of the best of all, all times in every possible situation.
The Universe blesses its geniuses with traits which naturally leads us to nothing else but the absolute best.
Human beings like me and a very few others are cursed with succeeding no matter the path we take. I attract success like a natural magnet so choosing isn't much of a thrill at all to me as I always know that the outcome will be perfect in every way possible.

The last spot... it's mine! To the other contestants: don't even think about it!

Special Offer!
I know you're all desperate, and I'm such a generous and loving person, I'm going to offer you all a once-in-a-lifetime offer.

For 799,000,000 ISK, you can buy me to opt out of the contest altogether. It's the only way you can get in. That's right, pay me now, before it's too late!

My god, some of those finalists look more likely to frighten little children or bite through a 720mm round with their bare teeth than win a contest of beauty and style. There must've been a lot of inner beauty discovered during the past few days or a lot of bad dancing the other night on the part of everyone else for them to have made it this far.
Either that or we've all been played and the whole thing is some ironic commentary on the vanity of our times ?

Can you imagine them on the cover of Essence Fashion or even the 3rd page of the Lonely Miner ? And miners get very very lonely ...

On the plus side, as a child i've heared all the horror stories about the blood cults (most of which i'm sure are slander and exaggeration), but my naive and impressionable, and i'm forced to admit prettier, younger cousin has always feared what might happen to her innocence should she catch their eye.
I'll be happy to assure her she's quite safe. On the other hand my other distant cousin, Ironjaw "One Hand" Rhei, relatively successful suicide ganker by trade and the black sheep of the family might be in trouble. It seems some people would find him quite the beauty.

But nevermind my opinion, good luck to everyone, including the mysterious 5th finalist *coughs*Jetena*coughs*.

Wait, what. It's not even announced yet, unless you're saying it's a rigged game, which isn't very nice.

Oh no, it was just a personal guess. I've just been following the event on this channel, i'm sure you must know a lot more about what others scandalous things happened at that private resort than me honey.

It's been quite a ride. It seemed like a beauty contest but it turns out it's a survival game, in a way. It seemed to me the game's designed to filter out those who are weak minded and whose character are less competitive. And there were indeed stories but I cannot think of one straight out of my head right now. *sniff* I'm guessing at the end there will be a compilation of highlights of some sort so I'll leave it to that.

After Istvaan's apparent suicide caused the House some headaches regarding verification and what to do with the betting pool in case no winning bets were placed -- apparently nobody expected you to die, you sly old fox -- word has reached the House of an unfortunate pod breach incident involving contestant #48, Ms. Velarra, not fifteen hours ago.

The New Eden's Next Top Model Deadpool now stands to pay out all bets on her; the limit of top twenty-five bets on a contestant has not been reached on her, or on any other contestant so far.

As a general reminder and explanation, further bets on Ms. Velarra will only be paid out if she manages become last in line to kick the bucket again. There are a scant few hours left to bet on (and/or bump off) anyone you do not expect to end up in the final five. Although competition among those five is expected to be intense, many of them appear to be experts at games of death and power, so nothing has been decided yet!

Absolutely.
And those who were naive enough to think that any event of mine in praise to Sani Sabik would be based on simple definitions... glad to shock your senses straight.

Beauty is a blend of traits including and by no means restricted to an aesthetically pleasing clone only.

As above, as bellow. I'm seeking the reflection of the beauty of the Universe on my Winner. I seek Suns & black holes incarnated.
My champion shall have Power expressed by a gifted Body used by an intelligent mind, one which is not tainted by the sin of restriction and a heart that beats for more than ordinary survival.

This is what I seek. And this is what I'll find here.
Anything less than my absolute level of expectancy is of no interest to me.

I commit suicide a couple times a week. Saves on travel time.

Oh, if only there were one more gentleman worthy of the final 5. I can see the Essence Fashion cover now... Nude with all the scandalous bits hidden, the gentle curves of flesh against flesh in the stunning cover photograph. The feature article could be titled "Beauty and the Beastly". Yes, Ms. Rhea, I can easily imagine us on the cover. You must have a limited mind, if you cannot.

Congratulations Jonas! I am thrilled to see you in the final 5 with me - I knew Lady Neferis had impeccable taste from the start, so it is no surprise to me that you'll be joining us for the final.

That helps me conclude my thoughts on something that's been nagging at me - although suicide is explicitly allowed under the rules, I wouldn't want to make that sort of shenanigans too easy. Pod self-destructs and suicides while connected to any kind of brain scanning or back-up devices shall no longer be considered. You'll have to put in a little effort, hold the gun to your heads yourself, and suffer at least a little loss, dears.

The little addendum was merely intended to prevent boringly degenerate situations, and in no way to cast doubt on the legitimacy of any of Mr. Shogaatsu's actions, or this demise. Strangely, I trust him to be on the up-and-up regarding this.

My events are non political. I'm sure that there are plenty of threads and events on this Universe based on the narrow view of politics alone. Gladly, as a Sani Sabik, I can spit on such definitions and appreciate the beauty of individuals alone when I wish to.


This said. I'd like to announce the 5th spot:

Looking at the company in the finals I must say I am going to enjoy myself a lot.

On a sidenote to Darveses: No not that kind of enjoyment *grins*
