Because You Were Confident

June 8, 2013

Because you were confident,
They were at least kind-hearted.
They were beside you?
For something between deaths,
What name.
And ultimately?
My mind.

Then, you admire her spirits.
Nothing more.
Nothing of good fortune by my nature.

    I love you, edde addad. Did you know that IM’s n-gram algorithm functions very similarly to Civilization’s battle algorithm?

    Thanks Jynx, I love you too. You’ve always been there with a Mimic for me, and sometimes your Lick was good for a KO.

    I’m surprised to hear about the Civ/IM algorithm similarity, but it makes sense now that I think on it…
