Strange how clear it becomes with the change in perspective.

The Flight 9 "Asshole Bomber" didn't bring the plane down, but the subsequent security checks almost killed aviation.

xD Reminds me of the Hangover:

"It's not illegal; it's frowned upon, like masturbating on an airplane."
"I'm pretty sure that's illegal too."
"Yeah, maybe after 9/11, where everybody got so sensitive. Thanks a lot, Bin Laden."


On an unrelated note:

She was all hip and bounce and his legs crossed quickly as she passed. Freezing, he recalled his injury. Damn ghost limb!

Her body laid broken and bloodied. As razor sharp claws came slicing down, she pondered "Why do I love porridge so much?"

ECO Friendly:

'click' Off went his final messages to the world. He laid down to wait. Nothing. He looked at the bottle. "Damn hippies."

He trusted his fate to its mechanisms. It gave no encouragement and volunteered no information. But there was dim hope.

In a spirit of helpfulness, and as a representative of an audience with "typical" brain density, I hereby issue an "over my head" alert on recent drabbles, and call those whose goal is general comprehension to adjust their trajectories accordingly. Fax Machine Crescendo and ECO Friendly are not enough hint for me. And is porridge the same thing as curds and whey?

Please keep in mind that we don't want to lose our Canadian audience.

Aw, sorry mate. It's not a intelligence thing, it's a "dreamrock failed to write well" thing. D: For this one, I'm just trying to convey the despair of trusting your fate to a fax machine that doesn't happen to tell you whether or not the fax went through.

Basically, crap like I posted is a lot like what a lot of modern poetry is like: trying to convey an emotion through text that is meaningful to the writer, but not so much to the reader. If it's done well (like mine usually isn't) and not done very often (huzzah, I don't use it frequently), it probably has a place, but otherwise it's just obnoxious.

I'll try to keep my bad poetry habits in check.

Mostly I thought the poor thread looked a trifle abandoned, and my experience with the fax machine today inspired me. Damn you, fax machine, and your non-responsive ways.

"Cyclostrophic motion is negligible in Coriolis acceleration," shouted the meteorologist. He smirked at Strawman.

Due to her job title, Meteorologist, he assumed that she studied meteors. But all she ever talked about was the weather.

Funny, and topically relevant to the recent discussion. Nominate this one as a weekly winner.

My 2secondGoldfish spouse will likely give me the evil eye for jumping in before she can explain but of course I'm at the computer now... :P
Nothing as frustraiting as trying to off yourself and discovering the cleaning products under the sink only kill stains.
Yeah, "porridge" took me awhile to get used to. Being a Yankie, I was always brought up with good ol' Oatmeal or Cream-of-wheat. But I guess that one covers most of your flavorless hot bowls of goopy morning cereal. Which of course, If I were Goldielocks,I think I'd go on to the next woodland creature's home and eat their bacon and eggs. But that's just me.

I had hoped everyones' love of Brine shrimp would make my Sea Monkey twit-fic a shoe -in, but I have to agree that is a finely crafted micro story.

"Nobody listens to me." The old scientist said. "Why do I have to keep repeating myself?" He wondered. His clone agreed.

The saw blades finally rested from their works. Perhaps now the phantom pain would finally drown out the emotional one.
