I picked up tipzntrix when I was 10 playing Ragnarok Online's Beta.  I made it with the intention of becoming good and having all the newbies come to me for tips and tricks.  However, the name max was 10 characters, so I shortened it.  I fixed up all the capitalization and punctuation when I started MUS (now The Bards), and added DJ to the front.

Some time after I started going by Hamster Mk 4, a friend sent me this image. I think it epitomizes what it means to be a weaponized hamster.



I don't know if that is brilliant or exceedingly cruel. I am leaning towards the latter.

Schwalbe is a german word for "Swallow".

There are three explanations:

- Monthy Python's Holy Grail - "What do you mean, an African or European swallow?"
- Zirael - those who read books about the Witcher probably knows what I'm referring to.
- Well...



Pick your favorite.

Remember that hamsters are cannibalistic little bastards who would sooner rip the tendons out of your hand than accept a treat from it. They have no sense of scale and very little sense of fear. There is a reason responsible pet owners don't feed hamsters to snakes. Sure the snake would get a meal 90% of the time but there is that 10% chance it would loose an eye or be severely wounded  in the process. Mice are a much safer option, they are not fueled by hatred like their hamster peers.

Weaponizing a hamster is only a logical extension of its natural viciousness. You are doing the hamster a favor by giving it the tools to act upon its evil and sadistic tendencies. However do not expect gratitude for this act, a hamster's heart is only capable of rage and scorn. There is no room for loyalty in the hamster's tiny heart, so once you have weaponized your hamster set it free in an area you don't plan to visit for a while. That way the life it takes will not be your own.

Uhh I've had three hamsters. None were evil. Escape artists yes, devoid of fear very much so. But not evil.

"Evil" is a term humans assign to things they fear. You were foolish enough to invite three hamsters into your home, so I suspect your sense of fear is malfunctioning at some level. I have never allowed a hamster into my home and prefer several layers of bullet proof glass between me and the hamster when I go to study one in the wild (pet store).

It was the parents idea actually. But they never gave me reason to fear them.

Just be thankful they weren't the miniature giant space hamster variety. They go for the eyes.

Eh, I had teddy bear hamsters. By far the cuddliest breed. I don't want anything to do with robo-hamsters. Those things are vicious. And yes, that's an actual breed, smaller than dwarf hamsters.

Usually hamsters aren't liquid...

It's kinda common sense that they don't flow easily.

:P

Originally, my name was Palatheio, which is still my name for almost everything. That name started back in the good old days of Spore: Galactic Adventures. I random clicked the name generator, and thus; Palatheio was born. My current name: George Coutts, is the name of my roleplay character, which, since I roleplay a lot (not just in Guns of Icarus) I decided to change my name to it to avoid confusion.
