A round of carbonated beverages for the planet, my good man

Pandemonium erupted the day the lights went out, but we are nothing if not adaptable. Humanity learned to shift their perceptions. It was the Age of Awakening. As we became conscious of senses beyond our usual five, the universe took on added dimensions while our world appeared that much smaller. Di...

Poor choice of words, take one

Long after the sun had exhausted itself and our planet reduced to a smoldering ash we watched as the last of the stars twinkled out of existence Oblivious to the cold you took my hands into your own and though I could not hear your voice in the vacuum of space nor look upon your face in the absolute...

Random nonsense

All beings on the planet Kilgore are named Jim. Additionally, all Jimmy (plural) share identical genetic code. One might assume there would be difficulties communicating. Citizens on other worlds have faced similar situations, and each has developed their own unique solution. Inhabitants of Belsar 5...

Re: Trying to find book by content

Nevermind. The Google Advanced Book Search is frickin' amazing. I limited the variables as much as I could and searched for words drugs, dolls and planet.

The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch was written by Philip K Dick. I guess I read more PKD than I thought.

Really helpful engines

Nobody can say why the small island community constructed their thinking engines, but they did just the same. Flesh was pulled from the recently deceased and grafted onto steel in ways that skin usually isn’t. Dogs were the natural choice when it came time to harvest neural cells. These were planted...

Trying to find book by content

I don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but as readers of weird, I have to ask. I remember reading a book that involves people going off planet. As a whole, they're not happy, but they cope through playing with dolls and taking a drug that makes it feel as though they become the dolls...

Re: Drabblecast 275 – A Riddle In Nine Syllables

A very powerful story about motherhood. This one hit me hard.

The production was professionally done and polished to degree N. The best I've heard on DC to date.

Everything you know about cheese is wrong

The meatloaf sits alone. Of the denizens residing inside the refrigerator, it alone has the ability to see into the frigid darkness. Perhaps the term “see” is not quite correct. The loaf cannot detect light; it has not the sensory organs capable of doing so. It might be more accurate to describe the...

Fake clapping, commented out! You don't like DC at all do you? :shock: :)
The correct code is:

Code: Select all

while (true) {
    System.out.claponce (2); // Or use 3, for a 3-hand clap.
}
Shows my fantastic programming skills. Thanks.

Re: Drabblecast 274 – Amid The Words Of War

Cat, you have managed to make me feel sympathy for this creature and make me not want to be in the same room with it at the same time. The alien aspects of "it" and it's "brothers" were convincing enough to make me squirm with fascinated revulsion. I especially loved the idea of an invisible graffit...

Re: Drabblecast 273 - The Electric Ant

I've not read much from Phillip K. Dick, and as you said, I do tend to associate his name with some of my favorite movies first. Thanks for expanding my PKD repertoire. Putting aside the obvious criticisms to the sheer dated-ness of the piece and how reality could be simulated by such an arcane tech...

Nobody else commenting? This one had me from the first line. I remember having to trudge my way through Moby Dick in my senior year. It was like receiving a heaping plate full of brussel sprouts. In small quantities, they're really not that bad, but after a while it's a mechanical shovel 'em in, gri...
