I'm with Mr. Tweedy on this; I totally saw the implications of a time traveling "robot" causing the Babel linguistic rot, but the demon angle made me almost cream my pants in joy and entertainment. The premise is also reminiscent of Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash , but with a bit more edge in terms of...

Ahh, this is why I want to have kids - so I can eventually be infected with a psychotropic disease by my spouse and eat them. I don't find the logical consistencies too glaring: the duration of infection and loss of control was unspecified - the wife had been walking for an unknown amount of time (t...

(Given my low post count, let's just write this post off as the idle ramblings of an Internet-assimilated geek. Oh, wait, that describes every forum poster here. :wink:) Being relatively new to the Drabblecast, with the Round 1 voting for Mega-Beasts already underway, I was under the mistaken impres...

Today, on a very special episode of the Drabblecast, Norm learns that putting your heart and soul into audio production can turn cheap saccharine junk into an ironic comedy-fest worthy of the Drabblecast. Okay, I would like to apologize to the author, Jeff Soesbe. Jeff, your story was well-intention...

It seems to come down to not so much to a battle of brains vs. brawn as focus vs. balance. We've seen that a stupid, but burly contender does not a winner make (sorry Skully and Chrono). We have also seen that the "intelligentsia" are fairing no better (Sanitee being the most obvious example, but I'...

All of this assumes that they will immediately start trying to kill each other on sight. <imafag>I think that they will see that each of them is unique in their own special way. They will recognize and respect their differences and accept the others' existences. Then they will have a tea party with ...

Quick one: how long is a "prolonged stare" for Sanitee? If he can literally stare-down Night Owl before Night Owl is in range then that definitely takes care of the dark horse. Owl. Whatever. That doesn't mean that he isn't torn to shreds by Sackoon fire in the mean time. However, if he happens to t...

Would Skully be cryogenically frozen (a la zombies in Canada in World War Z ) by ISM? If so (and assuming they were the final contestants), the yeti would little problem with crushing the remaining corpse if he didn't pass out from "blood" loss. I assume that all competitors would be set equidistant...
