- True Cyberpunks can prepare a duck sous-vide ... but they stick to Lucky Charms because they're practical. - True Cyberpunks ALWAYS order steak well done, because they've seen the fucked up shit that goes down in slaughterhouses first-hand. - True Cyberpunks know that FAME is more filling than FOOD, but they're hungry for BOTH ... and a Pepsi to go. - True Cyberpunks ALWAYS tuck their napkins into their shirt collars, because they've seen the fucked up shit that happens when you don't. - True Cyberpunks think Pinot Noir is for lame IDIOTS who probably still wet the bed. - True Cyberpunks RARELY cry if they get lost at the food store.

===== THE BOLSTER - ACT 11 ===== By this point you should already have "the girding" rounded out. Now you just need to complete The Bolster before you can move on to the outer hull segments. Here are the locations where you can find The Bolster Sky Keys.

DANGEROUS WAREHOUSE

When you're walking down the fang corridor (see Section 3.1, Fang Corridors) turn left before the final statue. Now walk back and forth repeatedly until you have a random encounter with a single Creep Shard. 1 in 255 times it will drop the first Bolster Sky Key. Careful: Creep Shards will often run away unless you are equipped with a NORUN bangle or cast TAR on the field.

Decoding Your Dreams

Tabula-Glimme, Dr. X. / 1992
0234.3670 TA

Chapter 9: Dreams About Sandwiches We've all had one. Dreams about sandwiches may make you feel confused or overwhelmed. But just like dreams about arms, they have a natural explanation. Holding a hoagie and opening your mouth? In the waking world, you're probably a repressed singer, yearning for a microphone. Caressing a Bánh mì before noon? You're destined for high finance and heartbreak. Juggling burders with an insouciant smile? It's time for a new relationship.



Bodyslam Scorned: The Lost Writings of the Gnostic Philosophers

Glorious IX, Maestro del Lavoro, S. / 1978
0237.6761 GL

Chapter XVII: D'Angelo the Canny Even among the middle-period middleweights, D'Angelo the Canny was respected as a clever tactician. His stirring entrance theme was notorious for arousing crowds to the point of hystarical fervor. We learn much of D'Angelo's theatrics from the First Fragment: I strode onto the stone stage ... ... ... blazing[?] ... organ music is heard. A shattering and rapping[3] is heard. ... ... ... I jape and jest to tell the Body-Story of the "grandfathers"[?]. ... We know not to curse the true "puncher"[4]. Do not bring laptops or cameras to the stone stage. Do not bring outside drinks to the stone stage, or you shall compete on it as an equal, and wail.



North American Flowers in Bloom

Muira, J. / 1899
0242.6883 MU

The fragile White Rose (Rose candidus) blooms once every 33 years. It was a prized talisman among early peoples. Di Datos relates a humorous anecdote about the candidus in his Flores del Nuevo Mundo en la floración (trans. H. Dixon): Then I saw the savages in rows and columns! The visiting Priest presented the blind Arch-Chieftain with the white flower, which I knew to be a rare rose. Through my interpreter, I understood the savages believed the flower to be a curative for blindness. To my shock and that of the Priest, the Arch-Chieftain declined the gift. I later learned this tribe considered blindness a solution, not a problem.

05 REGULATORY ARTS Edit

Los Angeles Municipal Landlord Guidelines

Los Angeles Solicitors Office, F-Branch / 207 0504.8098 LO If your tenant can't speak a language you understand, you've got trouble. Violence and voodoo are never acceptable alternatives to clear, open dialog. Try a bilingual dictionary, or flashcards with pictures of common problems. Still can't surmount the language barrier? Try simple gestures. Everyone knows a wave means "hello" a wink means "maybe" and a welcome pose means "Howdy, pard'ner!"

06 LITERATURE Edit

The Wilting Web

di Pietro, J.X. / 1838
0600.4549 DI

O! A spider wakes at dawn. Its door barr'd shut, its curtains drawn. A quiet breakfast in a pious home: This is why all spiders live alone.


The Wrestler's Wife

Valerire-Ruggler, V. / 2003
0601.7455 VA

His rippling chest hesitated as she ran her hands athwart his rock-hard thighs. Did he know? Certainly, her bowling had suffered. But this was more than just strikes and spares. "MANDY," he said. "YOU PREGNANT?"



Dangers Of The Beach

THIS BOOK WAS PUBLISH-ON-DEMAND BY WIGGLEBOOKS

submarines. So I told him, if he was going to hang out with the sand and the sun, he'd have to be on the look out for the problems that plague our beaches. Every true Cop knows the following three dangers by heart:


HARD DRUGS
There's nothing a Cop hates more than hard drugs, but on the beach, double. Call'em what you want, but in my book they're bad news. If you see any junkies, look out and tell me, or another Cop.

WAVES
Surf's Up? Waves are OK to look at. But when you're in and around them, things can get dangerous FAST. Best to just not try.

MALNUTRITION
Make sure to get enough food in your mouth. Don't spill it or I'll put you in Jail, myself.


A Treasury of Egyptian Laments

Stele, D. / 1922
0648.6847 ST

But foremost among pyramid funeral shouts is the Demotic Burial Wail. A classic in its own time, this fan favorite lets bystanders know you're truly agitated. And it's not just for funerals. Modern Copts have taken to using the Wail far away from any pyramid - the boardroom, the dinner table, and the bathroom are all fair game.

17-year-old Marie yelled as the car went fast! "Look at 'em" yelled 18-year-old Richard. You frown as the other teens yell. Something is bothering you about this whole mess. How could 14-year-old Benry have gone around the loop so many more times than the others already? You know The Snake Charmers' car can go 55 km/h. You know Benry's car can go 45 km/h, that's for sure. The difference must be in the rates of acceleration. Give the Snake Charmers a speed boost by writing their rate of acceleration in the space below.

____________ km/h²

"Wow! She's really letting loose now!" yelled 19-year-old Vince, a member of the Snake Charmers. "We're really cooking now!"
