I like the idea that gordon freeman went to work fucking high out of his mind during the events of half life 1

· · Web · 6 · 8 · 23

all the other scientists ushering him along while he's just absolutely out of time

if you're really empathic I recommend not watching this because it is A Lot

also I do want to say that the resonant cascade actually does happen in this head canon which, as you can imagine, would be incredibly hard to deal with even when sober

@SuricrasiaOnline That explains why everyone always has to remind him to get the HEV suit at the start... And gets lost so often...

@SuricrasiaOnline that one scientist who is all "they're waiting for you Gordon. In the /TESSSSST CHAAMMBEERRRR/" is such a dick, he knew Gordon was wired as hell and did that to mess with him

@aoife @SuricrasiaOnline either that or literally a govt agent who's also in on it with the dickish scientist from earlier and they're both pranking poor Gordon

@SuricrasiaOnline "I never thought I'd live to see a resonance cascade, let ALONE create one"
Gordon, high as fuck and wishing he was MORE high because today has so far been A Whole Thing, now visibly relieved: "oh thank God that wasn't just/me/ seeing that then"

cannabis mention 

@Nine @SuricrasiaOnline

"Damn, I knew I should have taken an extra edible this morning."

@SuricrasiaOnline it's practically canon he was high as fuck on morphine the whole time

@SuricrasiaOnline @synthgal [h.e.v. voice] hey, hey, can you feel, like, the energy of everything connected?? beep boop

@SuricrasiaOnline So that's why he's so quiet? All the time he's thinking "am I maintaing? can they tell that I'm tripping balls right now? Oh no, someone said something and I totally spaced out, smile and not, that's the ticket..."

@SuricrasiaOnline all the events were actually just him tripping in a bathroom stall

@SuricrasiaOnline this is such a good interpretation, in that when people are on psychedelics they're not like "there's pink elephants everywhere" they're like "i was trying to keep it together but i just really felt like i was in a video game, i can't explain it, like, everything around me was very normal but somehow also everything looked and sounded and felt like i was in the tutorial level of a video game"

@jk watching the vice video where the dude dropped acid at a monster truck rally is so enlightening on how acid actually affects you when you're also trying to do a job

@SuricrasiaOnline @jk

I can only imagine how little fun that environment would be on acid. Wow.

@SuricrasiaOnline @Mainebot @jk

there was also that American Asian lad who recently got yeeted out of his own startup company by the rest of the board as he tried to "microdose" before a pitch to investors, but took a tad too much (which ofc didn't end well)

@vfrmedia @SuricrasiaOnline @Mainebot "how much?" "oh, only a couple hundred micro-grams. that's a micro-dose, right?" "dude. dude."

@jk @SuricrasiaOnline @Mainebot

TBH every time I have taken psychedelics, the last thing I've ever wanted to do is be anywhere near any tech/work environment nor any place which is predominantly popular with normies...

@vfrmedia @SuricrasiaOnline @Mainebot i usually also feel like this when i am not taking psychedelics

@SuricrasiaOnline That would explain how an untrained scientist can obliterate legions of soldiers and aliens.
