enjoyed this story all round.

something that caught my attention: at one point the narrator says that Johnny's unnatural sensitivity to people's motivations was 'enough to make me believe in physics.' was that actually the line? i could see this character saying something like that.

sorry my responses are slow, i try to wait until i can express myself properly. Deflective: I agree with you 100% about irrational acts being bad.

So, I wonder what, exactly, you atheist guys mean when you say "religion" and what you mean when you say you haven't got any. Here's what I mean by "religion": Ask the question "Does the universe have a purpose?" If you answer anything other than "no," that's religion. To be truly non-religious, yo...

But, "life" with a little "l" was still somehow precious, particularly to the individual that was living it. Regardless of whether it was a 70 year-old human who was choosing to die, or a multi-million year old organic computer, it was life, with a little "l," that was precious. It may have been si...

Where do syllables come into it? What's with the arbitrary return to the final five line inverted sequence? i wasn't able to actually write something that restricts both word & syllable count, this is a bastardization that only works with the word count. close to a drabble, close to a fib, not real...

the fibble

mix the drabble and the fib and you get a fibble. which is damn hard to write. working with restrictions on both the word and syllable count gets really tough. i fooled around with the idea a bit and wound up working with a fibonacci word count in order to write something and still wasn't able to ma...

To say 'the fantastic nature of reality' is to assert that the nature of reality is fantasy. If anthropomorphization is a fantasy, then, aren't you asserting it is reality? not even a little. congrats on a self-aware choice of name though =) I think that its precisely because we do see meaning in c...

this piece worked for me. it teetered at the edge of the over-sentimental but kept it together. i was left thinking of a Gaiman paraphrase, 'you get the same thing that everyone gets: a death.' How can one hear about string theory or quantum mechanics, how can one contemplate the vast wonders of spa...

Re: The List

looks like this battle might be all about terrain so we'll need a good spectrum across land, sea & air.

squid, sloth, owl, polar bear, hornet (tunneling type), walrus

i'm disappointed that neither penguins or beavers are represented. beaver built remote turrets!
