Re: Beware of low flying...yeah, you guessed it

You demanded an explanation. I explained. You made misstatements. I corrected. And seeing as it was not anything you posted that inspired the "geez," I don't see why you feel you've been talked down to or singled out, or why you are taking any offense at all. If ROU or Mikes feel like I'm doing wron...

Re: Beware of low flying...yeah, you guessed it

Actually, no, that is not correct. There is no age gate on this forum, and there have been a few younger members here from time to time. And I don't think that jokes about strippers shooting dildos out of their vaginas would make it into either a PG-13 movie or your local newspaper. And, frankly, I ...

Sigh... Is there a line here? Is the moderator supposed to decide where it is?

Re: Drabblecast 195- A Matter of Size by Robert Jeschonek

I object.

Re: ...where nothing ever happens.

People need external input. To experience only things that you made up yourself will become unbearable, given time. We need the unexpected.

I have long speculated that Hell is simply being alone, truly alone, your own output as the only input.

Re: Drabblecast 197 - Death Comes But Twice

I love this story because it is so unpretentiously oldschool. I am bored by this story because it is so unpretentiously oldschool. I dig the epistolary style precisely because it is so dated. In the days of Verne, Wells and Stoker, almost all sf/f was written that way. It's almost never done now, an...

Nice! It's refreshing to see a sweet, sentimental drabble.

Most of them are about things like aliens indifferent to man destroying the Earth. (Who writes crap like that?)

Re: Eye--Heart--You

I keep wanting to "like" posts. Where's the "like" button?

I enjoy this because of how it mimic's Poe's style. It means nothing on its own, but it's a fun sequel.

Re: Precautionary

Makes me wonder what the virus does. Obviously it doesn't merely kill people, otherwise the government would not be so concerned.

The virus must give people superpowers. Can't let that spread.

The Invasion

The invaders appeared without warning or announcement. They descended from the sky silently, on a Tuesday. They did not greet us, and they did not attack. If we were in their way, they plowed through us. If we were not, they passed us by. When it became evident why they had come, we tried to fight, ...

Re: Cute CG Bunnies in Modern Combat

The characters in my daydreams were generally anthropomorphized animals all the way up through high school. My fantasies started having human characters when I was around 18.

But they always had guns.
