Another fine ACME produce comes through, more or less, again!

Silly Wiggle, of course ACME products work. You just have to take into account what really should be expected.

Or as General Tacticus said, "Let us grab history by the scrotum."

Rather: expect the outcome to follow Narrative Causality. (It's not always the opposite per se.)

This should pose no challenge to our feathered friends, as animals are well known to be smarter than humans.

Actually, I think ACME products work perfectly but will work against you in the worst way if you make the slightest mistake when following the instructions. There is absolutely no margin for error.

Wrong. According to the rules of Narrative Causality, the instructions do not exist unless you don't look at them.

"Following the instructions", oh please. That would be a darn sight easier if they could ever be found beforehand.

poohbear, it's a lie. A vicious, nasty, sneaky, lowdown LIE!!!

The Rule of Narrative Causality might cause people to be unable to see the instructions, but the author is the one to guides the actions. However, in this thread we are the authors, so each of us can decide whether or not the instructions are visible. However, it might be that, subconsciously, some of us don't want to see the instructions for some reason (such as a kinship with Wile E. Coyote).

Poohbear, just decide to see the instructions and you will.

Narrative Causality is known to be far more powerful than mere authors.

The only protection is to bend Narrative Causality in your favor; for example animals are known to be favored.

And naturally, if Narrative Causality favors you, well, it's very helpful if events always work out both in your favor and against the designs of your enemies. It also requires less work.

So, there is an uberauthor who controls the Rule of Narrative Causality? An author who is above all other authors? One who's so awesome that we are not fit to even refer to him/her?

At this point I shall stop since this is going into Deep Thought territory and I'm not sure if the true nature of existence which resulted in the creation of the Rule Of Narrative Causality means that there are 42 authors to control the destiny of the everything.

Wise move.
