atlanta is terrifying

Post by Toxius » Sun Nov 02, 2014 6:09 pm

welp

i NOPED so hard i put an ID door between me and somebody.

Just got back to the school after going home for halloween and happen to see two guys in the bike rack area

k cool whatever

one guy turns around and he’s wearing a fucking mask and carrying a baseball bat

ok maybe they aren’t just getting their bikes.

I see him, he sees me. My brain goes “you shouldn’t be here right now” and I look away to beeline for the security door into the campus. Look slightly to my left and baseball bat guy is walking my way.

NOPE

NOPENOPENOPE

Scanned my card and got in there quick, shutting the door behind me in case they weren’t students. Immediately walked to the other side of the pass-through to get to the buses and called security after trying to figure out if I just almost saw a bike get jacked or if it was just someone messing around.

this was at like 3 in the afternoon too, like, what the hell...

Good thing nothing happened to you though.

If only you were carrying your CC'd Desert Eagle, this would've never happened. They would've cowered in it's presence.

In all seriousness, I'm not sure how strict your school is on carrying firearms, but maybe some pepper spray on your keys or something couldn't hurt.

Most schools offer free or reduced cost self defense classes, especially for women. The confidence in knowing you're able to provide your own defense, without weaponry, is invaluable.

Been contemplating ordering one of these fellas, though. Keep it on my ID chain.

I missed that window since the classes happened during a heavy project week for me. The next time they'll get offered is next quarter maybe.

Reminds me that some dudes robbed a weed dealer with AK47s just across the street from my college.

That was intense.

"OK, try to imagine yourself in the J2 Server... You get your first look at this "Pinkle" as you enter a clearing. She moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing her flamethrower. And you keep still because you think that maybe her visual acuity is based on movement like Johnny5 - She'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Pinkle. You stare at her, and she just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the Hippie and Wolsky you didn't even know were there. Because Pinkle's a pack hunter, you see, she uses coordinated attack patterns and she is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this... A barbed-wired-wrapped fire axe, The Axetinguisher, in her left hand. She doesn't bother to headshot you like a Porkbun, say... no no. She lights you and slashes at you here, or here... Or maybe across the belly, critting your intestines. The point is, you are alive when she starts to rape you. So you know, try to show a little respect..." -- 3Ducks

^groawssss

Crazy people are why, no matter where I go, I've got a short wooden baseball bat hidden somewhere near me. It's like one of those aluminum bat you used as a kid, but ya know, it's not, and it's dangerous. One time, I hid it in my jacket, (this jacket is fucking HUGE mind you.) and was walking home from school, as the bus broke down, and it took 2 hours for them to get people to fix it, and it would've taken 3 to fix it. Lets just say, I am glad that I walked, because of how late the bus was, and I'm glad I brought my bat, because of a few adults who thought teens were sexy.

I'm just imagining a 13 year old kid with a giant bat shaped lump under their coat and wondering why you didn't get profiled.
