Scientists fine galaxy that shouldn't exist
I somehow imagine this as the most amazing episode of Cops ever.

"Ma'am, are you aware that a spiral galaxy of your proportions shouldn't exist?"

"I AM.

"Oh shit, it's self aware!"

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

I threw my anti-psychotic meds in the trash. Turns out the doctor who gave me the prescription was just a hallucination.

A variant of this already made it onto my Facebook account, so it might not be suitable for the 'cast. :)

Hmm, I think "Iron Rod" is going to be my new wrestling nickname. If I ever have a wrestling career of course.

Dutch Man Makes Helicopter out of Cat Corpse

Pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Dutch artist Bart Jansen lost his cat, Orville, when the little critter was hit by a car. After a period of mourning (and leaving Orvilla in the freezer) he did what any responsible person would do: go to a taxidermist, get his beloved pet preserved and outf...

Day nine. I eat old peanuts and cracker jacks under the bleachers. I meant it when I said "I don't care if I never get back."

Re: Drabblecast 186 - Garkain

I'm re listening to a few old episodes and gave this one aother run through yesterday and it still hits the spot. It did not help that I had to go out the back of my in laws property last night with a flashlight looking for a few planks of wood and something big takes flight from a group of trees. ...

Re: Drabblecast 241 - The Dead

On the one hand I like the idea of zombies effectively creating an economic apocalypse, but my one trouble with this idea is thus: after these brilliant industrialists fire all of their workers, who the hell is going to be left to spend their paychecks on anything? It feels tremendously shortsighted...

Weird. I just flashed a thought about some Norm Sherman Elder god in R’lyeh singing this anguished love song about some girl who is turning into Snooki.

Spain.

Wag the Finger

After many furtive years spent perfecting my formula in the garden shed, my work had finally born fruit: every last person on earth now thought that they were some sort of machine. “Well well well,” my wife said, standing in the middle of our front yard and looking to where I stood staring at her fr...

There was an episode of the show Sliders with basically this as the plot. Something like an appetite suppressant gone terribly, horribly wrong, IIRC.
