Hacking MorningStar

They literally asked for this. I shall give it to them.

Bear in mind that you guys are used to me by now, these poor fuckers live in a world of order where information flow is tightly controlled. They've probably never heard of me like most average people, and why would they?

I'm such a nerd... XD

In my experience most suffer disbelief when confronted by me in my lair, where I can prove my claims at the touch of a button, flick of a string, stroke of a brush, scratch of a whiteboard, demonstration of any of my skills, the list has grown extensive and impressive enough even I fear my capabilities.

One day I will write about this properly, I promise.

But for now I have our social care system literally in the coil of a tentacle [and its lord and master, Social Services, in a double armlock with the rest].

I even have one spare to rifle their pocketses with. I'm getting my Moolah back, all of it, and compensation. And Bea some, and proper one-one care without me doing it or having to micromanage it on benefits.

Which frankly is just insulting of course, never mind who I am and what I can do.

Speaking of which, anyone with mortal tendencies might want to pay attention to the Safety Radius of which my friends are aware and my neighbours are finding out about.

Its not like I dont wear warning colours.

I havent changed much in the last 20 years. Superficially or internally come to that. Same person wanders around in my skull today as was born here, I've just picked up a lot of experience not many get the opportunity to ever witness. Thats a privilege.

I've also been given the opportunity to effect change in our geopolitical systems. Thats a duty. My whole life has been leading up to something big, and it looks like my destiny has caught up with me at last.

Social Services, County and District Councils... SoH Hutlh batlh.

You have disgraced yourselves. Stand before your masters and be judged.


I had to pop out for supplies, and found this on my doorstep.

I hate to disappoint, but thats clearly not made for a Leviathon. There's no-where near enough tentacle holes...

But thanks all the same. XD

Wish you could stream live on Wednesday ;-)  Yes, the far future is a concern to be hacked out as well.

Oh my. How very modern XD

You know, if the water gets any choppier I might have to resort to such tactics. I'm really struggling to get physical support.

I mean its great that so many people are now vocal about this, and every person I speak to becomes a convert, but the unspoken part of this agreement is that [seeing as I now punch wayyy above my weight] that I'm the one with the Stick so its me who goes into battle. [Go get em son, the bastards deserve every splintery gouge...]

I'm not feeling the love however, I'm not a fighter and certainly no killer, so this goes against the grain. I'm wondering whats going to be left of me when I'm done, will there be repatriation for the super-soldier? I'm dubious, and therefore hesitant.

Despite their best efforts I still have a soul, and I wish to keep it if I can.

Rest assured though, I've come this far... ;-)

From what I've heard from people who had gone through their divorces, having a soul is exactly why normal people need solicitors. Anyway, if you are having doubts, we are not the pushers.

It is your call in the end.

None can predict what will come out of this. These are the extremes:

If you lose your innocence to your cruelty, that will hurt your soul, but if you get conned by crooks pretending to be victims of circumstances, and you find out later that you've been conned, that might ruin your pride and give you a lasting remorse because of humiliation and of missed opportunity.

Either way, there is a possibility that you may hate yourself afterwards. Be prepared to forgive yourself for not being clairvoyant and having had to decide despite so many unknowns.

I tend to lean a bit more to choosing the empowered outcome. If you get well ahead enough, you will (hopefully, probably, depending on the ratio between your gains and their losses) be able to be merciful afterwards and right any, or some, wrongs you might do in the process. Weakness is not a virtue, the weak have no choice but to be peace-loving. Self-control and fairness of the strong is.

On the other hand, if you are sacrificing your gains (well, restorations) for elevation of your spirit and for gaining self-enlightenment, make it clear and embrace your decision. If that defines you, if you are choosing a path of sainthood, then nothing you endured really is any loss of yours, or it all just makes sense in context of who you really are.

Just make sure, make decision, that whatever you do, you will stand behind it forever, no regrets.

Now they have gone and done it. They asked for it and now they will get it.... or is that give it...

Well Hench apparently has 'done his back in.' and wont be available until later this week. However it is of such urgency that Igor and 'an associate' are coming out Wednesday to go through my concerns.

He called me personally, while I was entertaining Alexa in a nice bubble bath assisted by a beer. So much for relaxing...

I informed him that he was welcome but I wouldnt be negotiating without a solicitor present, and furthermore things had gone so far out of whack that there was nothing in his power to fix it - therefore I'd have a judge make a ruling, but I was non-threatening about it. It isnt about the compensation he was so anxious to mention again... Meaning that my own paltry 14 grand is but a drop in the ocean compared to what I'm likely to be awarded for uncovering such a scam and thats what they are more worried about than anything.

Quarter of a million isnt uncommon where there has been clear systemic failure leading to abuses of rights, that I do know. But it isnt the end goal, because I'll only have to live on it and care for Bea on it until its gone, and after a successful prosecution against the service I think I can safely say they wont be offering me any more assistance.

I'll be pointing that out to the lawyer as part of my case...

Maximum damage, maximum return, full mitigation. Well I did warn Igor, perhaps he thought I was bluffing. He's been wrong before about that.
