Re: Stalker

Julia Roberts? Is Julia undead? I had more of a vision of this being in the silent film era with a Jean Harlow like actress. I don't really care for the vampire genre as I feel that vampires have been way overdone in recent years. But a vampire-like creature seems to work here. Why go chasing your ...

Stalker

Willowy and pale, she calls to me from the silver screen. I steal a car and head west. Wherever she goes, I follow. Hidden, just out of sight, I study her. I watch her house at night. The opportunity that I awaited has come. Her servants and bodyguards are gone, she is alone in her mansion. In my ba...

When Norm said Mikal lives in a small town outside of Austin I got curious and did a google. Evidently he lives in Lockhart, same as me.

Swan Lake

Police Lieutenant Briansky peered through the mirrored glass at the old man in the interview room. He asked “So this Mr. Von Rothbart has admitted to holding the thirteen missing girls captive?” “Yes sir” said Sergeant Sadova. “And you say that we can not press charges?” Briansky queried. “We have s...

Re: Einstein's Greatest Blunder

I didn't want this to be about the Creator, other than implying that it is the Creator described in Genesis. I wanted it to be about Forfax and his task of trying to patch up the crappy rushed job that the Creator did. I came up with the name Forfax doing a google for angel names. According to one w...

Re: Einstein's Greatest Blunder

Yea, I like for tweaking better. It's tough to fit things into 100 words. If you're not familiar with the back story, when Einstein put a cosmological constant into his Theory of Relativity he later called it his greatest blunder. Years later it turned out that the cosmological constant should have ...

Einstein's Greatest Blunder

Forfax scanned the list of defects. The Creator had hacked His creation together in a week. The rules were simple - dimensions had been created, then seas and land. A light source was set in motion and entities formed to inhabit the Earth. On a whim the Creator had put a spark of Himself into an ent...

Re: Meta-Brain

I'm glad you like. That one came from a group activity where we were supposed to do an impromptu sales presentation for anything we liked, the more manic the better. Meta-Brain just came to me - from where, I don't know. But I've thought that it would be fun to do a Youtube Meta-Brain parody commerc...

Re: GUT instinct

Thanks for the suggestions. I had not considered the "as always" to be a problem though I can see how it can be overused. It seems to me that it's not a bad shorthand. I could probably make another pass over this one and tweak it some more but I think it's basically pretty good. Perhaps I'll take an...

GUT instinct

As is our tradition on Tuesdays, I sit in on a discussion between Professor Hardy and his graduate students. The topic is, as always, the most recent advances in physics. You see, the esteemed professor is the world's premier authority on the subject of the Grand Unified Theory of Physics. I listen ...

How's this?

Oscar Myer foods had purchased the majority of private funeral homes. That was sufficient to introduce the new product.
