bravo! i enjoyed this weeks as well. wanted a bit of an encour since it was so brief, but as cammo and rich said, the concisety is an appreciated factor, not a detriment. i think the feature, and that aspect of it speak well for the idea of "drabblecast" in the sense of the definition. drabbles, as ...

i feel like when it comes to logistical matters of how a cyborg actually works, we just have to take for granted the fact that they do, being that the technology doesn't really exist. i mean to explain how he operates internally with above-average capacity would mean we'd have to actually invent cyb...

what the heck is going on here??? i go out of town for a week, and get a little preoccupied with school starting back up, and scraptor drops from a triumphant (and merited ) lead to a distant third? this, i cannot stand for. because i have a dream. a dream where brothers and sisters of all nationali...

New voting process for round 3?

[reposted from previous thread for different subject matter] hate that i havent been able to access the forums to take part in all the amazing debate going on up to this point. i have mixed feelings about the current voting system/policy, and certainly about the other easier, definitely illegal voti...

oh, and ive got pom poko in my miyazake collection at home. it's great. pretty long, and i guess sortof slow, but the hilarious novelty of the little racoons balls swingin around whenever they run carries your attention through it. it's part of his many environmentalist themed movies- hardcore. i ca...

man, i've been mia for so long from these forums. moving, transferring schools and stuff really put a damper on my troll time. as far as this story goes, it made a couple impressions on me- the aforementioned good theme about apologies being important, hard to do, and cathartic, and in that sense it...

but if they authorized the sunrise retroactively then there is no "until then," in a retroactive sense it's only "since then." and since then, todays authorization coming from yesterday has been based on the assumption that today would be their then tomorrow, making the present the future. if tomorr...

i tend to be the other way around. i dont love depression or anything, but stories with really unfortunate endings, lacking resolution are special in that they ring true with real life. like the movie "Blow," if any of you have seen it. it's not in my list of favorite movies ever, but you can't say ...

i saw a discovery thing on this fungus once- it's incredible. how the heck does a fungus use mind control? but even more impressive to me, is that the ants have a quarantine protocol. when an infected ant latches onto a limb to let the fungus do its work, other ants will pry him off and run him as f...

Re: My choices

gorilla, squid, boar, wasp, raptor, turtle 1.

I like the folk guitar style, but I never know what the hell Bob Dylan is saying. I'd hate for Norm to write 88 lines and no one be able to understand any of them. did you mean his lyrics or his voice? i think if you picked 80(ish) lines from our drabbles and put them together it would come out exa...

i liked it too. a vampire life insurance claim fits in nicely with the zombie voting discussion we recently had. i didn't pick the reveal per se, but it crossed my mind with a few other possibilities- like him turning Cheryl into a vamp so she'd have to be on his side to file her own claim, or maybe...

Well, I was sure to specify ‘microevolution’ because my understanding was that even those wacky, insane creationists (of which I am one) bought into the relatively short-term, observable stuff. So not to kick a dead horse here by revisiting this subject- just wanted to clarify that we’re probably on...

i hate to get into discussion of the story prematurely, as lots of people are still working out how to actually listen to the story, but i've got a question- most of the way through the story i thought it was a kid, obviously. then somewhere in the last quarter i started to think it was probably a m...

For evolution to push life forward in any sense, it would have to employ systems that select by criteria of objective fitness, yet almost all mate selection systems we observe use superficial decoration as criteria. What gives? Interesting discussion. Seems like the factor that makes microevolution...
