*looks at poll results*
*frowns*

Guess I should explain those, then.

Chá-mehameha < kamehameha: Goku's signature move
Tea blast thrust < ki blast thrust (don't know the user)
Shin tea ko ho < Shin ki ko ho: Tien Shinhan's "tri-beam blast"
Continuous Chai Chai Missile < Continuous die die missile (again, don't know the user)
Love and Teas < Love and peace!: Vash the Stampede, Trigun
...

That was a waste of a perfectly good explanation.

Yeah, Elliot would have a hard time intimidating anyone outside of his work environment.

I intimidate plenty of people just existing in public and Being Tall. He doesn't need to do anything for it to be happening.

Is it cold in here?

I believe Morituri has reported the same experience.

Yay <totally not Desire of the Endless for copyright reasons> and Elliot bonding is so cute.

I believe it to be banter. Weirdly, a lot of folks have trouble parsing the two.

Yeah, Elliot would have a hard time intimidating anyone outside of his work environment.

I intimidate plenty of people just existing in public and Being Tall. He doesn't need to do anything for it to be happening.

Whereas I have to where a labcoat or something else with fitted shoulders to show just how broad I am in order to intimidate. Granted, I usually have to cuff or roll up the sleeves so my hands aren't covered by them[1]. But still.

[1] I'm 5'5" (165cm) and I usually need a 2XL for anything with fitted shoulders if I want to move my arms more than 15° forward without ripping out said shoulders.

Yay reminds me of one of those villains who has decided 'You know what, evil is boring, I We need a challenge. Let's try being nice." and he's discovered that it's more fun when people like you being around. And you get to pet more animals.

You know, I'm really glad Yay's not telepathic, or I'd worry about them being a side-reference to Seanan McGuire's Cuckoos from the Incryptid series.

Oh, wait, they're telepathic TO OTHER AIS.

Well, at least they have ethics!

Egg metaphors are weird at the best of times, because they hark back to different times. A bad  egg was one that had been fertilised, almost unknown in retail in the west, so I suppose could be said to represent murder and a destroyed life.
So of course a good egg is one that hasn't, apparently at least, been fertilised, so does it represent lost opportunities and vanished hopes? Disappointed ambitions perhaps, or what?
And let's not start on rotten eggs...
But modern egg retail is so sanitised that maybe all the nuances are lost?
But I do like the wasp egg metaphor.
