    Wasn't there a museum Goosebumps CYOA that taught you to always check for electricity with the back of your hand and not your palm and like, double killed you with a fakeout option to escape a T-Rex with an item that wasn't in the book? It also had some gimmick of like, multiple pages per actual book page.

    Yes

    It also had the possibility of getting abducted by aliens

    Technically everything you do has that possibility.

    I mean in your specific case they're not wrong but that's because of your ever growing army of demonic horrors.

    I once as a kid took a look at an anthology of short horror stories (relatively tame, now I think about it, but still they got to me).

    One story involved a bunch of asshole kids who mocked and pissed off a girl who turned out to be some sort of witch, who cursed them to have everything they say be true. Which they laughed off initially, as asshole horror story protagonists tend to do.

    I got as far as one of the kids saying “man, these mosquitos are eating me alive.” before closing the book and returning it to the library.

    I don't think about this because I think I was older than the Goosebumps target audience when they came out.
    But I do think about the fact that CYOA works better as 'Cover Your Own Ass'

    If I remember correctly, that was the first thing to happen after the curse started. It was a hot day and the bugs were out in force.

    It's surprisingly hard to reprogram your language quickly/at will. There's a whole class of party games and improv setups built around that fact. In a scenario where one poorly phrased idiom could kill you I doubt any of us would survive

    Those Goosebump CYA books were way spookier and more fucked up then any of the main series.

    Except for the one where it was a messed up summer camp and the kid tried to escape and in the end it was all a training program to prepare him for a trip to a mysterious planet called Earth

    Especially a high stress situation

    Like, if you just saw your friend murdered by thousands of mosquitoes, I don't think you're gonna be thinking rationally about your language

    That statement does nothing because it's a conditional.

    Stomach full of money (deliberately misreading for as an exchange)

    Either dies quickly, due to the large amounts of mass suddenly rupturing his digestive system

    Or slightly slower, due to the poison of accumulated chemicals and residue

    Trying to get ahead with a curse is asking for it to backfire, imo.
