Random Chat

One of the two most kick ass places on the Mara forums (the other being SPAM Chat). Known as RC by its inhabitants, it's so awesome that members of other forums such as Restricted Chat copy things in it and overuse them long after they've gotten old.
Surprisingly enough, about 90% of the general population of RC is made up of complete idiots. However, these idiots aren't shunned. The members of RC have discovered that idiots provide small amounts of entertainment, and quite gladly let them hang around and make fools of themselves.
Trolls also provide a fair bit of entertainment, as they play out the stupidity of these hapless morons.

RC's biggest downside would be the people that believe they belong there, when in fact, they would be better off under the care of Restricted Chat's 18 year old grannie Jade who will open her arms and shove a dildo up the child's behind at the first welcome. This is how they get accepted.
These tend to be whiny brats that make tags, use lots of emotes or use all caps (or all three) to draw attention to their topic where they complain how unfair there life is because their mom makes them do the dishes.
Not uncommon in this sort of topic is the handing out of cookies, other various foods and drinks, virtual "dancing" and searching for the perfect bf/gf. Thinking they're so rAnDuM!!11! and kewl, they'll bash anyone with a lower post count and suck up to anyone with a higher one in order to gain an imaginary "experienced" status while talking about how they *hits you with a cookie and jumps on llama and rides away*. Yes, they're that stupid.
Otherwise, RC is a great place. Whether you like to actually chat instead of getting fat on imaginary food, or just sit back and laugh at the sheer stupidity of some people, it's a good place to do it

An RC is a Research Chemical. Some research Chemicals get you high, or help you study at low doses (4F-MPH, a-PVP, Methcathinone). Some are milder and help you study with energy (Prolintane,

Methiopropamine, Ethiopropamine, Cathinone). Some research chemicals help you study (Phenylpiracetam Hydrazide, N-Acetyl-Selank, Selank, Semax). Some can cure depression permanently (NSI-189, 9-Me-BC). Some RCs can help you stay awake and remember stuff (Hydrafinil, Adrafinil, Fladrafinil, Flodafinil). Some RCs raise your mood by preventing breakdown of Dopamine and Norepinephrine (D,L-Deprenyl; Pheniprazine). Some are NDRIs (Thiopropamine, PhenylPropylAminoPentane). Some are histaminergic to help you wake up (Wakix, Sunosi, Modafini, Armodafinil, Flmodafinil, Fluorenol). Some RCs became medicine and can help with trauma to help you forget (Propranolol, Klonopin). Some are replacements for alcohol/ethanol (2-methyl-2-butanol, Bretazenyl). Some are empathogen-entatcogens (IndanylAminoPropane (IAP), IndanylMethylAminoPropane (IMAP)).

Warning /!\: The long term effects of research chemicals have not been studied.
Tony: I took 100mg of Flodafinil and stayed up for 12 hours straight. I was studying.

The next day, I took 30mg Ethiopropamine (EPA) and 100mg Phenylpiracetam Hydrazide and studied and cleaned my room for 6 hours. Thanks RC!
