Re: Modern Builders Practice Ancient Ritual With New Twist

Great story. A nice feel-good change of pace from mutant sea creatures and nose monsters.

Re: Drabblecast 160- Trifecta XII

Good stuff! This wasn't my favorite Trifecta ever but I thought all three stories was solid. Didn't quite see where the first story was going but loved the ending. A band of space monkeys in jet packs loaded up with 5 weapons a piece could do some major damage as an invasion force. The second story ...

Re: PIE VS CAKE!

Cake is great and pie can be great. Some pies are just bad news - like mincemeat - while others like french silk and pecan are fine. What the hell is going on with mincemeat pie anyway?

Re: Drabblecast 159- Intelligent Design by Ellen Klages

I cringed a bit when I saw the title, but I thought the story was a funny light-hearted romp. Reminded me of the stories I heard in catholic school.

Another strange sea beast

Pretty cool looking, although only 2.5 feet long. Still, I wouldn't want it crawling around on my bathroom floor.

Re: Drabble Reviews Blog

All scores out of 5. -- -- Shutter Island 4 I enjoyed Shutter Island . Not the best by Scorsese, but if he was forced to work to that standard he'd stop releasing movies. I think saying much more of the movie's merits opens me up to the licking flames of controversy. When recommending this to frien...

Re: Drabble Reviews Blog

But on the whole, I don't feel it's an unfaithful rendition of Job. I'm also fairly sure that our somewhat-more-agnostic-than-me DC forumites will probably get on with it just fine from a religious perspective. It's a Jewish movie, not a Christian movie, and it's not proselytizing at all. Whether o...

Re: Drabblecast 153- What Fluffy Knew by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Great show all around. Loved the creepy meow-meow Drabble. The feature had kind of a Cat Whisperer / World of the Worlds vibe going. Cutesy and horrifying all at the same time. Just excellent. Meow!

Re: Ghost Shark, Sexy Forehead

But that's the point. The public education system has managed to ensure that no one is aroused by anything they teach. This is the mentality that offers you ketchup as a vegetable! The only way people care about learning any subject is by being aroused by it. But they make science a vegetable. Why ...

Re: AMAZING STUPIDITY!!

It's funny how moronic people can be. Several times a week I get a steaming pile in my inbox, look it up on Snopes.com, and send the rebuttal. You would think that getting constantly rebutted would be a deterrent but the simpletons just keep the chain emails coming.

Re: Drabblecast 130- Trifecta IX

Yea! Another fantabulous tri-diddy. I liked each of the stories in the same order of magnitude as the order in which they were presented. Dinosaur was my favorite, loved the melancholy tone and the hopeless ending. Monster Talk was clever and I thought the narrator was a good match for it. The andro...

Re: Drabble Reviews Blog

IMHO : Dawkins is a pompous, self-righteous ass. Sagan was talented with an inflated ego. I like Brian Green so much more. And Hugh Ross (reasons.org). I agree that Dawkins is pompous but I like what he has to say. I read most of what Sagan wrote, he probably got me started on critical thinking and...

Re: What Rock God do you worship?

It's been a while since I worshiped any rock gods, but in my day, there was nothing better than the guys in Metallica. Then they sold out, hired Bob Rock as their producer, and turned to crap. They've been trying to get their stuff back together for the last two albums they've released, but it seem...
