Consulting Detective

Consulting Detective (8/8)



  1. Do we need flamethrower? It's a cabbage field, but are we going to take the chance?
  2. I agree with you, it's not a good idea. We don't have ideal habitat and weather for them. And that sounds like ridiculous reason; bringing back an extinct species of animal so they can tear down trees? Trees? The very thing we destroy rapidly? We don't need the help of mammoths!
  3. The Last of Us, anyone? I don't know and am not familiar with the game, actually didn't know the series is based on a game, which really intrigues me about gaming nowadays. Too bad I can't be part of that anymore since modern games are too nauseating to play with as they are mostly first-person views. The first four episodes have been awesome so far. It has a complex main character and not the usual undead story. I have no complaints yet about the accuracy of the biology. This topic always fascinates me, but I maintained something I said somewhere else
  4. That is exactly why it becomes clickbait, an interesting headline. From my experience, if you have to click more than once, then abort it. Most likely it would be nothing they advertise anyway. What annoys me more is they also do this with the news. They post something like "Because of this, (something happens to someone/some company/insert object)" or "This is the reason why (something that affects you) is going to (something bad). And you have to click the bloody article to find out what is 'this'. However, there is a positive in that, most likely, you will find the answer + there is more chance that people will read the whole article and therefore understand the situation better, and not freaking out and spread it like hot fire from just the headlines, which is way too common now. Still, I think it's an annoying tactic. Another way to spot clickbaits, they like to play with emotion. They are dramatic and sensational. This would turn me absolutely monstrous!
  5. To be fair, I don't have experience playing with adult lions and tigers. My kittens (small ones) were affectionate enough, but I needed to persuade them to sit on my lap. While these big babies willingly cuddled and climbed into my arms. It was great, but maybe the unpleasant truth was they should be out there with their moms doing things babies do. My kittens had their mommy. Precisely, unless you are talking about real-life monsters aka serial killers, then they are less likely to be culture-specific. I read somewhere that we are advised to limit it before 1930, which still provides plenty of choices, including the one who shares the last name with our favorite detective. However, I am wary that the discussion would be limited to unpleasant gruesome or the act itself. As the information is scarce and may be unreliable, we don't have many things to discuss in terms of forensics and investigation, for example. But I do understand the concern.
  6. Yes I heard that version too. I got some chances to cuddle with baby Tigers and Lions, I would say they are more affectionate than cats sometimes. I realize I know almost nothing about monsters outside my culture, so I can't contribute more on that. For popular culture monsters, but not from the monster side, I believe there is a relation of Freddie Kruger with Nightmare Disorder.
  7. Elizabeth Bathory is a terrifying example. Her story sent a shiver down my spine when I first read it, I believe 15 years ago. I hid the book about her (and others) on the far-left-top corner of my shelf. Is there a possibility that her case is repeated in the modern day? Although we certainly have much better laws (?) and technology to solve crimes? Is it still 'difficult' to catch a noble? Is it still 'easy' to do mass killing if you have the power and resources? It might not appear in the shape of one blood-thirsty Countess, but unfortunately, imHo, yes to all above.u On the other side, is it possible that her case was/is exaggerated and there was much more to it? The lack of technology of that time and the abundance of it at this current time, the answers are still yes.
  8. I am not sure if these matches are fitting or if your question includes Greek mythology, but Narcissus is the first name in my head for narcissism. And here is an interesting one, Dionysus for split personality. The God of ecstasy, art, and wine. 'Born' twice from his mother's womb and his father's tigh. He showed sides of joy and rage, pleasantry and brutality. And here is folklore; if you are familiar with the Chinese Zodiac, cat is not one of them. According to folklore, there was a race to determine which twelve animals to be included. However, being arrogant, cat decided to sleep in, thinking that by being agile and arboreal, they should be able to claim a spot easily, but eventually missed the chance. Arrogance is one of the recurring traits in serial killers and most criminals.
  9. That is awesome, Carol! Thanks for all the effort. (I suppose this is not the right time to ask for cake section, then? Maybe next year)
  10. I'm looking forward Mindcage starring John Malkovich. It has a strong Hannibal vibe, which is my favorite TV series (Mad Mikkelsen). Maybe my expectation is too high, but at least the casts are strong. I will also watch John Wick, because Keanu! And anyone who kicks dog abusers' asses is my hero. Just watch Knives Out 1 and I like it a lot, the setting, the cast, and even though it's predictable, still a great twist!
  11. Exactly I agree with you. The thing is, it affects me; it falsely represents me, although it does not necessarily put me in a bad light (but false representation bothers me as much as that). I don't know how to describe it better. Maybe something like this person tries to give a testimony about how I do here. She has never seen this site before, but ten seconds later, she is able to produce this: VBS has significant contributions to the forum with her general posts and a twist of many erotic romance rants. Have I ever talked about my romance life or ranted about anything erotic??? I am barely able to differentiate thumbs and carrots! Wait that is probably not a good example. It's so obvious she is faking it from the timing and her very wrong analysis. That tells me how not credible she is, but the fact that her 'resume,' which she must have obtained in a very short time by doing all these quickie nonsenses, is rewarded. No one would say anything because she could easily change her testimony with something like VBS sucks and her posts are all stupid nonsense about erotic carrots and carrots only. Anyway, yes, it's too obvious and dumb, I wouldn't be at peace for not pointing it out. I felt lied to and used. So we went back and forth, I asked her to explain without actually accusing her (her responses are everywhere and even more ridiculous) for a while (private communications), and my responses to her were as polite as possible, with sarcasm up to the neck. Tbh, it ruined my day and could discourage my target audience, so I was actually holding it back instead of screaming at her virtually. At the very least, I hope she would be more careful in throwing her very misleading words around, and I actually felt better once I did that. I hate the digital world and how easily it could be manipulated. P.S. I just want to clarify there was nothing erotic about the actual incident. I just want to emphasize how dire the situation felt for me that time. 😁
