Andrew North Blows Up The World

Andrew “Danger” North is no ordinary third-grader. He, his brother Jack and his father are spies. At least, that’s what Jack’s always told Andrew, and everything Andrew’s learned from his dad's favorite spy movies tells him it must be true. So when Andrew finds Jack's graphing calculator he's 100% sure it's a communication device that will put him in touch with the secret spy headquarters. When he tries to make contact with headquarters through the calculator he accidently punches in a code that might blow up the world. As if that’s not bad enough, his math teacher confiscates the top-secret communication device. Now Andrew’s on a mission to find his brother's communicator and save the world from mass destruction.

Alright, I need to vent about something. In this one role-play called Logan: The Beast Unleashed, I have this one character named Aiden who is a former mercenary assassin. (I know, pretty dark. But just hear me out here.) Aiden went to try and convince Logan to come back, and pretty much failed. Going to Logan, Aiden killed 5 thugs that he came across that were going to do something pretty bad if he didn't do something first. At the middle of the time he had there, he killed a guy that was going to inform people about him which would be awful. A month later, Aiden received a letter. The day after, a guy entered the side street that Aiden lived in, giving Aiden the right to kill him. Then the leader said, "Can you please tone it down with Aiden's killing?" I kill 5 guys, then 1 more, and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. First, he killed 6 people in one day. Then one month and a day later, I kill someone and then told to tone it down. How does he know whether or not Aiden had been keeping away from killing people? Meanwhile, his character Carl kills whoever crosses his path, just to get to a girl. Carl goes and kill countless people and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. Carl doesn't seem to be much different than Aiden! If anything,  he should tone it down! I just can't believe it. 1 month and 1 day later, kill a 7th guy and then, "Can you please tone it down?" HOW ABOUT YOU TONE IT DOWN?! It isn't very logical to tell me to tone it down when he has so much more going on! Sure, a lot has to change so Aiden can work with the others, but I don't want to be told to tone it down when Carl can't tone it down! Why can't Aiden just continue on with his usual act and make it more fun and challenging for when the time comes for Aiden to cooperate with others? *sarcastically* IT ISN'T LIKE ANYONE IS BEING PRO-FAVORED HERE! Seriously, the leader makes it so much harder for me to really do anything and makes it easier for everyone else. I'M NOT EVEN THE VILLAIN! I feel incredibly disrespected when he constantly makes it so much harder for me. Sure, the challenge is fun sometimes. But if I feel like as if I can't do anything and make no progress, then how in the world am I supposed to have fun? Role-playing is for having fun. I don't want to leave, I just don't to participate in a role-play where I can't have fun.

Now you believe that Trump is basically Hitler reincarnated which is legit so let's say 'Trump is Hitler' which has a letter total of.... Yes. 13 letters. Now if Hitler was a fascist and Trump is basically Hitler then wouldn't that make Trump also a fascist. Of course this breakthrough of Trump a Fascist couldn't be made public so it was subliminally confirmed through the numbering of letters. Smart. Also, Donald has six letters, so does Hitler. Cohencidence? I think not.
