Re: Winners and Losers

I read the last line figuratively and upon rereading see that you might have meant a literal pile of dead bodies. I personally prefer the tale of a man who leaves ruined lives in his pursuit of "winning" at life.

Which bent did you have in mind writing this?

Re: Life is a Joke

The Universe is God's evil twin. "And so, make peace with your God, whatever you conceive Him to be; hairy thunderer; or cosmic muffin. For all it's hopes, dreams, promises, and urban renewal the world continues to deteriorate. Give up." (Apparently the author of Desirata loved the parody and consi...

Phineas, I think you have a good case for suing Seth Mcfarlane in an temporal court of law.

Blind date

The lime green cylinder drifted over to our table. “Good evening,” it pulsed, “would either of you be interested in a cocktail?” I strained my ears to catch my date’s response, but the quickly shifting textures made it difficult. Uncertain how to respond, I nodded my head. The noxious odor that resu...

Re: Voyage: A Macroscopic View

This reminds me of a set of three short stories I read decades ago. They all revolved around people voluntarily going into suspended animation as a means to escape problems in their present. All ended with a heaping scoop of irony.

Re: Drabblecast 284 – Turning Point

I loved this episode, though I was hoping for a different ending ... In which the Earthlings discussing genocide all realize they've been poisoned by the alien race who saw it all coming a little faster. I was waiting for the humans to wipe out the alien civilization. And they did so without spilli...

Re: Drabblecast 283 – The Man Who Drew Cats

That was an enjoyable listen even though the ending was telegraphed from ten miles away. I think that was the whole point of Norm's outro. The ending was obviously heading toward sweet, sweet justice, but everything up to that point is what held me. Both the writing and the narration was wonderfull...
