This HOUSE is NASTY! cleaned dishes that probably havent been touched in months. did a full DECON on several areas. found the mass feeder full of ROACHES. AHHHHH!!!

oh and on a side note dont mix CLR and Bleach in any combination.. ITS um dangerous *gets some fresh air* but it did kill a bunch of roaches in the bathrooom. >_< ...

Oh and the computer hasnt arrived yet. HOPEFULLY wensday :D

The chip-design irises in the list panel = perfect.
velvetsanity 7th Oct 2013, 10:33 PM edit delete reply

Looks to me like they're the same in all panels.

There seems to be a pattern reminiscent of like a motherboard to me in the close up of the eyes. What really impressed me though is the reflection of the window seen in Connie's eyes. I mean that is detail there. :-) [Eyes are the window to the soul, was Dizz trying to say something here? :-D]
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 1:50 PM edit delete reply

I thought they were a cool design :D

She is quite beautiful. Excellent work here!

Yeah, bleach & anything with chlorine in it can release chlorine gas which is a bit more than dangerous, deadly could be a better description especially in a closed room. Lots of dangerous chemicals in our kitchen cleaners take care! Glad the house clean is going well, will you feel a sense of tremendous satisfaction?
velvetsanity 9th Oct 2013, 4:27 PM edit delete reply

I think you mean anything with ammonia in it, considering that bleach *is* chlorine :P
mjkj 8th Oct 2013, 12:18 AM edit delete reply

Wow, she is beautiful and her eyes really are lovely, great update :)

I hope you will be fine, CentComm, and master cleaning all that nastiness out.

I hope your computer arrives safely.
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 6:51 PM edit delete reply

im on pins and needles trust me..
cattservant 8th Oct 2013, 12:21 AM edit delete reply

But they're dry roaches aren't they...
Stormwind13 8th Oct 2013, 5:53 AM edit delete reply

Yuck, CentComm. Sorry you are having to deal with such a mess. :-p Hope you get it sorted out soon though.

And hope you computer arrives soon and you can get it back up and running so we can see more of your wonderful work. :-)

Though I do have to say DiZZ did a great job with Connie here. Very lovely. Thank you Dizz.

Yeah years ago my wife tried that combo to get rust stains out of the dishwasher, the result makes the atmosphere on Jupiter look good.
Stormwind13 8th Oct 2013, 6:24 AM edit delete reply

Welcome to the wonderful world of chemical warfare. :-p Be careful over there. If you are going the full warfare route, CentComm, try a flamethrower. It is quicker on roaches than chlorine gas. :-)

(Please note, I AM kidding here. Streams of fire are NOT good in most houses. :-O)
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 1:03 PM edit delete reply

Do you have one handy? Maybe a plasma repeater in the 40 mw range?
Stormwind13 8th Oct 2013, 1:43 PM edit delete reply

Well I'm sure I could get a Plasma Repeater, but I doubt it would do the job. :-D Seems more like a paper tiger to me than a solution for your problem. :-D
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 1:48 PM edit delete reply

sadly no .. it wont work but it IS cool looking >_< thank you anyway :D

Nothing worse then the flying Palmetto bugs (flying cockroaches) in Phoenix. Was visiting a friends place and opened a cupboard- damn thing flew out and scared me into next week. Left that place and never went back! Never knew they got that big and could fly until I moved to Phoenix.
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 6:21 PM edit delete reply

they are bigger and more agressive in Florada - but they were never inside.. i havent seen any of the BIG palmettos .. just the nasty ass german type.
Antonious 8th Oct 2013, 6:17 PM edit delete reply

As a Petty Officer in school in Orlando I spent many fun hours lying on my bed with a bic lighter in one hand and a can of Aqua Net in the other watching a band of light on the floor for "Palmetto Bugs" to cross it. When they did, FWOOSH! Flamethrower on! The Aqua Net combined the qualities of flamethrower and napalm. Did you know Palmetto Bugs can pop like popcorn?
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 6:20 PM edit delete reply

HAHAHAHA - eeewww >_<
DizzasterJuice 9th Oct 2013, 6:00 AM edit delete reply

wow, I thought I was the only one that used to do the home-made-flamethrower-on-cockroaches deal. =P
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2013, 7:51 AM edit delete reply

Jake and Elwood Blues, but admittedly not on cockroaches. :-D
Rashala 8th Oct 2013, 1:47 PM edit delete reply

uh you realize CLX and Bleach mixed = Mustard gass right?
Centcomm 8th Oct 2013, 1:49 PM edit delete reply

>_< no , its not like i dumped them togather there was still bleach in the pipes before i added the CLR to try and unclog the pipe..
Rms2000 8th Oct 2013, 3:10 PM edit delete reply
Has anyone considered that some kind of nasty chemical combination like this could perhaps find a place in the story? Or maybe just a side-story. Or even just a random news article on a paper that an NPC is reading. Heck: I don't know where it would be useful. Then again, I'm just a reader, so I don't have to know that, now do I?

Preferably in the Princes personal quarters.
rfaramir 9th Oct 2013, 9:07 AM edit delete reply
Oooh, and the Prince could get the 'crazy' idea that there's a conspiracy out to get him overthrown, but really it was just an accident of the cleaning people...

Which really confuses the actual conspirators, too, since each thinks that either a different conspirator tried to act on their own, or that there is a different group as yet unknown to them.
velvetsanity 9th Oct 2013, 4:32 PM edit delete reply

Not quite. Technically, *real* mustard gas is the result of applying fire to R-12 refrigerant (thankfully they've switched everything to R-134a!) which is why A/C techs are required to have a license in order to *touch* anything that uses R-12.

Ammonia+chlorine *does* result in a similar toxin, though.
Stormwind13 20th Oct 2013, 8:35 AM edit delete reply

Sounds like it typically forms Chloramine Vapour which isn't good, but typically isn't as bad as pure Chlorine gas.

Still NOT what you want to be breathing, but it takes a greater concentration than you created to do any permanent harm in the short duration you were exposed from the sound of it. Ventilate the area and don't do it again. :-)
Centcomm 20th Oct 2013, 8:58 AM edit delete reply

yah thats pretty much what ive decided - BAD girl dont do that ! >_<
Oldarmourer 20th May 2019, 7:35 AM edit delete reply
R-12 and intense heat makes phosgene, a choking agent sometimes mistakenly called 'nerve gas' which it isn't. Almost anything sufficiently acidic or alkaline and bleach releases gaseous chlorine, mustard agent is just that, distilled mustard although there are several artificial versions which replicate the same chemical structure, much like the vanillin in artificial vanilla isn't the same as organic vanilla bean extract but chemically more than close enough; wool, silk and some other synthetic materials create hydrogen cyanide when burned and the list goes on. All have different reactions with the human body but of them all I'd pick the chlorine or cyanide, it wouldn't hurt nearly as much and in sufficient quantity be a faster way to go ;) last on the list would be mustard, it can take days to be lethal and the pain from the blisters (it's a vesicant) is incredible after it takes effect which can take a few hours...oddly enough, very strong bleach, like pool bleach powder, will counteract mustard but it can cause the treated area to burst into flames as it reacts...a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't...

forgot I was rereading and this is years old, oh well... as an old EOD tech I tend to ramble on about such niceties when I see them :)
mjkj 9th Oct 2013, 3:10 PM edit delete reply

So, CentComm, did the computer finally arrive?
Centcomm 9th Oct 2013, 3:18 PM edit delete reply

no not yet.. still waiting >_<
Rashala 9th Oct 2013, 3:37 PM edit delete reply

whatever you do centy don't imagine the movies driving badly your pc unsecured in back boucing and falling and rolling and having things leak on it and crush it.....or them transferring it fom truck to truck dropping it or just shoving it around bouncing it...
Centcomm 9th Oct 2013, 5:38 PM edit delete reply

I will find you.. I have a spicific set of skills for this occasion I will find you in your sleep. *giggles*
Rashala 9th Oct 2013, 5:50 PM edit delete reply

Whaaat I said Don't imagine all that.

I am by nature and optimistic pessimist
Speedy Marsh 4th Dec 2016, 11:17 PM edit delete reply
Those eyes are amazing! I keep thinking that the patterns in her irises are starting to fall into her pupils, like circular versions of the raining code screens, in Matrix.

My eyes are jittering from a migraine, and the patterns and colors remind me of the movie. I think my mind just wants the patterns to move toward the center.

It'd make an awesome animated GIF

I never thought I'd enjoy a migraine. :)
