Cocaine Hippopotomi threaten Columbian villagers

BBC News A herd of hippopotamuses once owned by the late Colombian drug baron Pablo Escobar has been taking over the countryside near his former ranch - and no-one quite knows what to do with them. It was in 2007, 14 years after Escobar's death, that people in rural Antioquia, 200 miles north-west ...

unreliable narrator wrote:"I wouldn't sleep with you if you were the last guy on Earth!" she screamed.
He smiled cooly, "Who'd be around to stop me?"

Welcome to Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale

A Drabbly podcast about a very strange town. Strangely hypnotic, like Twin Peaks as an audio drama. But quite a bit different. Hard to explain. Give it a listen.

Re: Recalculating Route

I'm just playing the hand I've been dealt. Let's just say that every time a form says "initial here", I feel the need to explain myself. I'm the good kind of NSA. RIght? Is there any other kind? The United States of America would never give an undisclosed and unaccountable amount of money to an org...

Monkey selfie photo Wikipedia legal battle

Ars Technica United States copyright regulators are agreeing with Wikipedia's conclusion that a monkey's selfie cannot be copyrighted by a nature photographer whose camera was swiped by the ape in the jungle. The animal's selfie went viral. The US Copyright Office, in a 1,222-page report discussing...

Re: What's Your Drink?

My drink- the Godfather: half amaretto, half whiskey. It doesn't have the overwhelming sweetness of amaretto, and it doesn't have the "Oh my god, I'm drinking fire!" of undiluted whiskey. It smooths out the whiskey and it gives the amaretto a kick and a tang. Be warned: this drink, like its namesake...

Tattoo

I had traveled across continents for my research. The once-great monastery had fallen into decrepitude; its remaining caretakers a few elderly monks. One of whom, flattered by my attention, beckoned me into a nearby cell where he lowered his robe and exposed his back to me. Samsara; the endless cycl...

Re: More Happy Thoughts, Dammit!

I like this one. Nice setup, good conclusion and pretty tight form. The only criticism I would make is I don't know what a "play want we want" station is. It seems to be a bit of a distracting line.
