The Pharaoh

As my father and my grandfather before him I spent my life preparing for the afterlife. Thousands of workers and artisans prepared a tomb fit for a king.

The robots, programmed to serve humanity's every whim, made them perfect, much more so than any woman. For wo...

What better way to spread my DNA than to clone myself and kill everyone else?

Now I just need to make my clones submit to me.

As with the best laid plans of mice and men, we spent billions watching the skies yet no one ever saw the black hole coming.

You should have tested it before you put her in the thing

So what happened to the teleporter? The guy looks a bit like an alien to me. Maybe he was just trying to go home. Might have worked in motion pictures too. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/WoLdXMnAsP8/hqdefault.jpg https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/star-trek-fan-who-claimed-wife-died-during-teleportation-exper...

Merry Christmas

School bored me as a kid. While sitting in class one day I had a thought. I wondered if I might really be connected to machines, experiencing a synthetic reality. But for what purpose? Could it be, I wondered, that this life experience is a just class? In some distant future could the real me be exp...

Re: Peace and Quiet

This might make a good opera

Why would anyone have a meat hook in their living room?

It's said the Necronomicon is a book of dark secrets that drives men to madness. I've studied the Necronomicon. It's a design document. Earth was once dark, fiery and radioactive. That was the age of the Elder Gods. After dark millenia passed new life evolved. The Earth was transformed and the Old G...
