LPT: Turn your lock down into a story. I've been pretending that I'm in an off world colony with a hostile environment so leaving the hab is dangerous. It's helped my mental health quite a bit.

Leaving the hab (house) requires your pressure suit (mask) and getting food from the farms (stores) is always a dangerous enterprise. I can talk to people back on Earth with my terminal, but it's too dangerous to make the trek to go visit even other colonists. We have green zones (yards) around the hab where we don't have to wear protective gear.

I know. It sounds dumb, but it's helping me cope with the isolation.

TIFU by eating half a colony of ants

Before anyone goes ahead and calls me a dumbass at least know that this entire situation happened in the dark.

Yesterday night I found myself a bag of plain corn chips and thought I'd help myself to them, they were pretty good. Didn't get to finish them so I wrapped them up and put them in my little munchie drawer all snug and safe. Keep in mind I've never had ants in my room before as I keep it cleaned to a pretty good standard. Only water etc no sugary drinks left about and such.

This room was spotless except that small bag of chips. Tonight, just about 2 hours ago I jump in bed and load up Netflix and continue to watch Peaky Blinders (Absolutely amazing show, season 3 finale btw) and think, why not finish the chips, I grab the packet and leave it on my lap in the darkness. Little did I know that this bag was ABSOLUTELY PACKED with ants. Like I mean PACKED. More ants than chips type shit you know.

I start munching away mistaking the ants for salt or something idk how I didn't pick up on them earlier but I was very suspicious of my fingers smelling weird. Apparently a % of the human population can't smell ants. I'm not sure the ratio but I can definitely smell them, they stained my fingers and the chips were smelling and tasting funny. Like they were expired which they most definitely weren't.

Fast forward maybe 40 minutes and I'm starting to feel sick and I get bitten on my neck, "wtf was that"
I turn on the light and that's where the shock horror hit and I see them all running across my bedsheets, in my pillows, on my clothes and then I looked into the bag and almost threw up.

Immediately ran to the bathroom and just aggressively washed my mouth out. I feel sick and have that anxious feeling of small movements on my skin. Did some research, eating hundreds of ants won't kill me but my scared memory might.

TLDR; Grabbed a chip packet full of ants and ate at them for 40 odd minutes in the darkness while watching Peaky Blinders on Netflix.

My Muse Flat Apartments Review (290 COLONY ST)

This is my first post on reddit. I never felt the need to make a post or review on something negative but tonight I have the time and if you somehow came across this I hope you read this too..

I moved into 290 Colony St. (Muse Flat Apartments) as soon as they opened to the public and I have nothing good to say about this place. The vents are all connected in a way I've never seen before. I came to my "moving in" day with multiple notes from a neighbour who soon apologized about the complaints she left at my front door... as there was no one living in my suite while she made these complaints. I can not blame HER whatsoever because now that I live here I understand.. you can hear everything through your vents and its hard to tell where exactly it is coming from. If your neighbours are fighting that just makes things even worse. Secondly, my heater was not working September through December and I was told its not urgent and I have to wait until my neighbours turn theres on so it works...No big deal right, I'm paying $1,000 for a bachelor with no heat using the stove until I got a portable heater...

Now recently people have broke into the building (I'm not joking here...) defecating in the main lobby so you have to use a KEY FOB to get in to the entrance where the buzzer is, which might not seem like a bad idea if the fobs worked properly. Today I was out there for at least a minute waving my fob infront of the sensor, which doesn't sound long, but to wait to get into your own building lobby it definitely is... especially in this weather. Now for the cherry on top... the staff here are the most rude, non-understanding people I have come across. I've lived in several cheaper places throughout my life downtown and other areas and nothing can compare to this place. Stay far and stay warm!

Just lost my first colony after 50 hours of playtime

I bought this game about a week ago and in that time I’ve logged 50 hours all in my first colony, but tonight as of 4:23 AM, it’s all over. The damn bugs took everything from me.

I’d fought off several infestations before using nothing but my colonists and I had no reason to believe this time would be any different. I saw the notification alert, positioned my heavily armed colonists behind their sandbags, and prepared to open fire. I liked to keep my animals away from the line of fire when I didn’t think they’d be necessary, but here that proved to be a mistake.

Rather than the usual 3-6 bugs that emerged in the past few infestations, I was greeted with an entire swarm of 12+ of the spidery little buggers. My colonists were completely overwhelmed, but someone still managed to fight them off just barely. At this point nobody was unscathed. My main artist DaVinci, was also a backup doctor and picked up our main surgeon to carry him to the medical bay. The rest of my remaining colonists jumped into action, grabbing their fallen brethren and rushing them to the operating table.

I was almost completely out of medicine from an altercation just a few in game days earlier, so I knew I had to make it count. I prioritized my surgeon using the last of the medicine stash, but it was in vain. Paul the Surgeon bled out on the table, and 5/8 of my remaining colonists followed suit.

In the end I was left with Jynx, the agricultural specialist missing a leg, an arm, and an eye, Butterfly, the researcher missing a leg and several toes, and finally Artimis, my handler who was missing both eyes, a foot, had dementia, was frail, and finally loved starting fires.

After stowing their fallen comrades away in frozen sarcophagi, the remaining colonists gave up hope and ceremoniously entered their Cryopods. May they Rest In Peace.

I learned a valuable lesson from all of this, next time bring a MUCH bigger flyswatter.
