|I just approached my wife, in the kitchen. She has been playing Nethack for most of the day. As I approached, she jumped nervously. Reading her sheepish look, I inquired "what, did you think I was a kobold?" She explained herself, "no, I thought you were invisible Asmodeus." Nethack appears to have an uncanny ability to insinuate into people's psyches, as further demonstrated by this and this.

|Insinuating into real kitchens is rather more uncanny than mere dreams, though. I wouldn't have thought the real world was comparable enough to actually trigger anything (cf. reacting nervously to blue and yellow litter-bins after three hours of System Shock 2, noting and sticking to shadows after heavy Thiefing). Impressive.|

|Nethack invades rl.|
I had been feeling as though I had eaten a ring of aggravation a while ago :(
How do you get rid of intrinsics in rl?
|You could always install Nethack - Falcon's Eye. http://falconseye.sourceforge.net/ It's astounding how non-addictive this version makes Nethack.|
