Re: Memespace

A followup from an article I'm reading: " Memes are all attempting to self-replicate by exploiting inconsistencies or weaknesses in our cultural code. They are not attacking one another; they are attacking us humans. " http://www.iftf.org/fileadmin/user_upload/images/DigIntel/SR-2002_IFTF_...

Re: Still alive?

It would be so much better if this web forum software had a "thumbs up" button.

But thumbs up.

The Things in the Lake

Living in the country isn't like the city. Humanity invented cities. In nature things are shaped by other forces. When we bought our Texas ranch, rather than trying to reinvent things we tried to coexist with what was already there. The ranch has a lake and we think that there's things in the lake. ...

The End of Everything

Years ago I wrote in the drabblcast forums "It's just so difficult constantly trying to come up with new and innovative ways to destroy the world, or better yet, all of existance." It was true then and it's true now. Destroying the world is a hobby of mine. The challenge is to do so creati...

Re: Still alive?

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it's burnout. Norm and the DC crew put a tremendous amount of effort in and I'm sure it was a constant struggle to stay above water.

But the fact that there's been no official shutdown is a good thing. It leaves open the possibility of future stories.

Modern Problems

My mom's always nagging me. "Pick up your things." she says. "Take out the garbage. Clean up after yourself." I wish she'd just leave me alone. But do you know what really gets me? It's when gets into her whiny "You're grown up now. Your father was your age when we married. ...

The Blossom

A trillion tiny lightsails are carried off into the void. Within each is the DNA of a billion different species. It's a bit like a blossom's pollen being carried to the winds. When we were younger we arrogantly believed that the stars are our destiny. But the universe doesn't favor a single life for...

A once vibrant community is now quiet. I return to empty hallways and dusty rooms. Yet I must post, for I'm almost at 1000.

The Flying Dutchman

I said that I don't want to die ever!

I'm used to drifting in deep space. Circling a black hole makes me want to reconsider.

The Face of Evil (just in time for the political season)

I have seen the face of evil. We all have. He is short, muscular and dresses in a dark suit. The media tells us about dangers abroad.They show us his picture. The pundits and politicians all agree that he's a dictator and a threat. It's on all the channels. Once I found an video of him on YouTube. H...

Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

The news is full of stories about dangers abroad. To defend the world from evil I vote for the man willing to strike first.

(I think my drabble does a better job of telling the same story)

Pris

Pris is a Jacob's Sheep lamb. When her mother rejected her we took her indoors and bottle raised her. We named her after Pris from Bladerunner. I worried about our ranch dogs but they adopted her and even cleaned her. She ran with them and played doggie games. She became member of their pack. When P...
