Thought it would be funny to take both Heaven and Hell BTLs and pooped herself to death.  Apparently, that's a thing now.  Who wouldn't want to go out pooping?  There should be a contest or something.

HELP WANTED

The small SURGE research lab NuYuResearch has been experimenting with subjecting subjects to artificial SURGE related 'energies' to see if they can get a volunteer (in this case, Dave, human) to turn into, well, something else.  It's just an eight-hour third shift over a period of three days and all you really gotta do is sit around and make sure all of the recording equipment is running (free knowledgesoft included so you actually know what you're doing) and, more importantly, maintain a steady conversation to see if there's any change in his mental state.  There's also plenty of terrible movies to riff, conventional and computer boardgames, although Monopoly is his favorite.  Now, there is a dangerous catch: The whole experiment is taking place in what is basically a huge man cave in a scraper.  And you are locked in.  There is a team ready to subdue good ole Dave should he go Super Mario monkey shit, but you got at least 15 seconds before the team pops in.  You are not allowed to have any weapons and must not harm the subject in any way.  Any injury, even issued in defense, will result in forfeiture of that night's pay.  The pay is only 1,500¥ a night, but considering the experiment has been running for over a year without SURGE expression, odds are you're getting paid just to hang out.

Got a wage slave who got himself into a weird ass contract with Mackin’ Media involving details I'm not privileged to nor really care about.  But apparently there's a clause that can get him out of it if he gets married, even if it's just effective for 5 minutes and is almost immediately dissolved.  So the guy, sigh, Director Of Mackin’ Media Exposure Clifton Oseni,  has been setting this whole wedding up for a couple a months to make it look genuine, invited about 200 guests, booked a church, all the while keeping the identity of his fiancée a secret.  So, for a big ole 10,000¥ all you have to do is marry him and then immediately punch him in the face after the 'I now pronounce you husband and husband' part, and a kiss.  Oh, yeah, he's gay.  Also, it's a Refined Universal Catholic ceremony, a branch that has gotten rid of pretty much everything but their long ass weddings. 

PARTICIPANT ENTERTAINMENT
