Uh oh, an extra inning! During Powernaut Halloween 2014, I realized the 
world needed to see the true story of Powernaut Halloween 2005. And it 
needs to see it now, before Occulator Compuplex finally gets rolling.


This true story is brought to you by real people:
•  The Banana:  Jerome
•  The Gorilla:  Max
•  Minnie Mouse:  Maotze
•  The U.S. Army:  Shui
•  The Creature from Dr. Moreau's Island:  Srini
•  The Powernaut:  Suresh!
•  World Domination:  Scott!

It was originally published alongside The Dark Maneuvers, on the 
Halloween weekend of 2005, on the Powernaut's letters page.  So it goes 
alongside that story here too.  In 2014 it'll have to be published for 
Thanksgiving, though.  Oh well.

As for the Dark Maneuvers, the Powernaut had his own version of events 
even then.  And he's not afraid of making himself look good.  That has 
of course been reflected here...  At the actual party, World Domination 
came a lot closer to winning.  Heh heh.  But if nothing else, this story 
illustrates the difference between the Powernaut and other heroes of his 
ilk:  the Powernaut is lots more fun at parties.

Our history is full of attempts to mystically change it.  But 2005 is 
special because the Space Jellyfish really did.  And then they announced 
it.  (ref: "Humans of the Earth!",  2005/humans.htm)

After that, trying to wish reality changes became fashionable.  The most 
nearly successful attempt by mankind in 2005 was the "Party 'til the 
World Obeys". (ref:  Powernaut 2005 Episode 2)  But there were many 
copycat attempts.  The Powernaut himself investigated one of those.
