Anyone here familiar with Cowboy Bebop should know of episode 11, titled "Toys in the Attic." Well, if you're not - or if you've never heard of Bebop for that matter, here's a linky. I recently had an experience that was, well - intriguing to say the least. Mainly because what happened in that episode happened to me.

It all started two or three days ago (it's the summer, I lose track of days) when I woke up and found myself itching all over. Mainly on the areas of skin that were exposed from the sheets and covers during the night. I thought nothing of it, after all - I hadn't been taking my Claritin D for my allergies. Maybe they were just spiking up? Who knew. I went on with my daily activities, ate lunch, dinner, then went back to sleep.

I awoke the next day with similar symptoms, only this time the itching was worse, my nose was stuffy, and my throat was scratchy. Not cool. Not cool at all. I took some allergy pills and once again, thought nothing of it. What struck me as odd was that I was the only one in the house that was effected by these strange symptoms. My mom told me it was finally time to clean my room, after ordering me to do it for about 4 days now. I had nothing else to do...so I went at it. She came up to help for a little bit, and as she was cleaning off my dresser, she found a Chick-Fil-A coupon.

"Hey, here's a Chick-Fil-A coupon for 1 free sandwich. You might wanna keep this," she said.

"Oh really?" I started, "I can't remember the last time I went th-"

And that was when it hit me. That was when I remembered everything.

I have a hobby desk, where I paint and draw stuff (used to do DbF sketches there, too). I don't go paint every day but I pass by it every day, and I can't believe I didn't notice it sooner. It must have been 4 or more months ago...

My soda cans and paints must have covered it up, and before I knew it I had totally forgotten it was even there. Yes, I referring to the white Chick-Fil-A cup behind everything. It...couldn't be that bad, right? I mean, it was only a drink...concealed in a styrofoam container...

...incubating...

...with a straw for a wind pipe...

...to release it's spores.

I picked it up and took it to my bathroom. I had to see what was inside. What the damage was. I reached for the lid...just a peek. All I need is a peek...
Posted Image
I took a big gulp of uncertainty and slowly pried open the lid...

(WARNING! This is some graphic shit. Viewer discretion is fucking advised.)

Posted Image
OMFG!

The lid was only open for what seemed to be a few seconds, but the stench permeated my entire bathroom and it was so disgusting and nasty that I threw up a little in my mouth. The smell was like rotten eggs, with a hint of shit, with a hint of puke, with a hint of some more shit. Shit, I think I saw something fucking swimming around in there. I didn't get lemonade either, and what seemed to once be a liquid was now a gelatinous monstrosity. Those little shits floating around, the stench...God, I don't know what it was. All I knew was what had to be done. I made sure the lid was sealed, and went to my garage.

My dad has a bad back, and can't bend over to pick stuff up all the time. So he's got a nifty grabber arm that I like to fuck around with sometimes. I grabbed it, went back upstairs, and carefully grabbed the Chick-Fil-A cup which seemed to be teeming with life. Life I didn't fucking want growing in my room.
Posted Image
I grabbed it, very carefully - and proceeded downstairs until I was outside and tossed that fucker in two old plastic bags, tied them shut, and threw the fucker away.

What's the real lesson here?

Don't leave drinks on your desk.

That's an awesome session. I did the same thing with a plastic milk jug on campus last semester. You know of course that I'm at least as obsessed with bebop as you are, if not moreso. :) That picture with the hazard rod is quite risible. Rock on, man. I'm proud to call you friend.

Damn, thats good. Complete with pictures... awesome. Now stop spending your time on writing articles about what happens when you leave stuff on your desk and go draw more DBF. They're hilarious! Is there a reason you stopped drawing them?

Same thing happened with milk to me... Oh man, that was disgusting.. except mine was in a thermos (don't ask why), so when I opened it the whole thing was SOLID... The thing never smelled the same.

Yup, mine was a plastic cup. Wasn't even my milk. I don't drink milk.

Yeah well at least your milk didn't fuck around with your allergies and evolve to fucking swimming organisms in a sealed container. That was some scary shit.

I didn't get to blow it out of an airlock, or anything cool like that - but I thought hey, what the hell. Might as well document it.

Hunter, it was not my decision to "stop" doing DbF, Cxwq has had a busy last 10 months in his life and simply has not had the time to update the upload system. It's not like I quit or anything...it's simply that the upload system is gone.

As in...I can't do it. Not at the moment, at least. Hopefully Cx will fix it for us and we'll be back to normal status sometime soon.

Now what you SHOULD have done is stick several firecrackers in there, and throw it in your neighbor's yard after you light the fuse. Now THAT is what you should have done.

Or, you should have left it in your garage and let the little things evolve and see what came out.

Nice Land Raider Crusader.

Personally, I prefer the old paint pot designs that were impossible to open. The new ones keep drying up on me.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Chick-Fil-A cup breaks free at the landfill and constructs a rudimentary body from the very living trash to stalk the night and seek it's revenge on the living. Just not on Sundays.

Look, it's MY FAULT, ALRIGHT?!

I'll fix the goddamn site or kill myself from the shame of it all!

Or, go to that meeting I have to be at in 20 minutes... yeah, think I'll do that instead.

New DbF will be up Very Soon. Groove has made it quite clear to me that I am the only thing standing between him and further comic greatness. But don't stop bitching just because you're afraid of me or anything. Go on whining just like you all have when you thought it was Groove's fault.

Friend of mine just dumped about $700+ on Cowboy BeBop shit, most of it on a new dog (Looks like Ein, one of them Welsh Corgies). The dog is freaking awesome, and has already become attracted to the large recliners we sit on at his house as we play video games. He likes Red Faction a lot, I think. I'll have to snag a pic when we get back home.

I have enough cans of Dew laying around to bring in and refund enough for one of those dogs, methinks. I'm afraid to sniff some of them.

Oh, atleast he didn't do all the stuff Spike did in preparation...I mean, Flamethrower, handgun, grenades, rapier...just for the damned thing.

In closing, if you can, try to find the Music Video of the session, played to Wierd Al's "Livin' in the Fridge". After watching the real version, we ended up watching the video a few times....mostly to see Ein with the bandage around his middle. Very comical looking.

(cXwq why teh fuck rnt u dong DBf n e more? i want funy butt i cum 2 NH and tere is no funy wat teh fuck d00d?)

I love photostories. :)
I love Cowboy Bebop too.
Beautimus, that should be archived on the site. In fact, there should be like a photostory section. Those are always masterpieces.

Oh yeah, Corgies are my favorite dogs! They got those fucking small legs! Its great!

I did play Deathwing, until GW announced they were releasing new Termie models early next year. So my Deathwing army is on hold until then.

In the mean time, I am making a White Scars army.

That's awesome, Ray. The best episodes are probably the first 5, and the last 2. Keep on watching them in order! That's the only way you can watch Bebop, and I'm glad you're doing it the right way. Rock on.

Yeah, for some odd reason I liked FLCL too. I didn't understand it until I wated it a second time. And were their really only 4 episodes? Or were they too lazy to make them in english?

Yeah, I saw the entire series from beginning to end. I was only able to do that cause my library has all the DVDs available to be taken out. Same with Neon Genesis Evangelion. Anyway, awesome reference to Bebop and funny story. Kinda reminds me of a science fair project I once did where I put a nail in different liquids to see the effects one month would take on the nail submerged in the liquids. The one in vinegar was the worst and when I opened the lid the final time, a white cricket-like thing hopped out. I then proceeded to stomp the shit outta that thing. I kinda wish I didn't now so I coulda raised it and used it to destroy small cities or something...

I take it you guys have never done the dairy challenge. Milk chugging is a tradition on my cross country team. This June, at our beach house, everyone purchased gallon-containers of 2% milk (except for 2 girls, who shared a gallon of whole milk). I believe it was $65 of milk altogether. Anyways, the challenge is who can drink a gallon of milk in an hour WITHOUT puking. No one on the team has ever done it. Anyhoo, I chugged immediately, and puked first after 10 minutes, after drinking 2/3 of the container. It is impossible because the milk curdalizes(sp?) inside your stomach, which feels grody. We were out on a dock in a canal, and when we all puked into the canal, and moved to one side of the dock, the dock would go under, and the milk would come back up all over our feet. The entire back of the house smelled like rotten milk for a day afterwards, anf the whole canal was white. Quite grody, and highly recommended ;)
