For this Halloween, I’m going dressed as the scariest monster in the roughly half-billion year history of multicellular life on this planet. I’m not including a picture of the costume. I’ll leave that to the imagination of the reader.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
This creature has caused untold death and destruction and even caused the extinction of many more peaceful creatures. The widespread wholesale destruction caused by this monster is immeasurable. This creature is a global catastrophe of epic proportions.
If this creature doesn’t scare the living shit out of you, you’re not paying attention.
I’ve thought about augmenting my outfit with my megadeath machine of semi-random killing. In the U.S. alone, similar devices in a variety of shapes and sizes directly kill about 30,000 people a year and contribute to less direct deaths totaling between 70,000 and 130,000 people per year. I’m probably going to skip taking my megadeath machine out of its special closet since I have no need of help getting where I’m going this evening.
I call my megadeath machine my “Toyota Prius”.
IMHO, the usual Halloween costumes people wear just don’t scare me more than the costumes we wear the other days of the year.
