Reduction in size, reduction in swank? Yet to be seen by eyes of man. Shall we ever know? ummm.. be.

For eons the computer programs toiled away at their lives, never knowing the memory was almost full.

Alas, these are all disqualified as twabbles. A twabble is exactly 100 characters, not counting spaces.

Interesting. The one I was using must have been counting something it shouldnt. I'll just have to fix them when I get up tonight.
EDIT: or now, that's good too.

When life gives you atoms, use them to construct elaborate molecules. Ones that explode, destroying all life on earth.

This would go well in tandem with 'When life gives you lemons...'
Actually, could be a whole new twabble genre: "When life gives you..."
Anyone up for a go?

That was my initial thought on it. How about this one?

When life gives you a bare knuckle sandwich, invest in dental work, and then a big bruiser to pound life into submission.

You might also have said:
Goes well with 'When life gives you lemons...'
May be a brand new twabble genre? 'When life gives you...'
Anyone for a go?

passes the twitfic test... :wink:

When life gives you lemons, you're pretty much screwed unless life ALSO gives you sugar, water, a container, et cetera.

When life gives you a pet, you really should begin to look out for unias. Guess I need to work on this concept a bit further.

When Life gives you anything it's probably best to run screaming. Death will doubtless be following with his own gifts.

----------------------------------------------

When Life gives you the abstract made physical, ponder a moment what Terror and Pain will do, when they become manifest.

----------------------------------------------

When life gives you something, be sure to check the terms and conditions. Sometimes the cost is more than you can afford.

-----------------------------------------------

Life sneered at the joyful people below. Soon his true nature would be revealed, and they would learn to quake with fear.

------------------------------------------------

And edit a 3rd time for one more:

When Life smiles at you, be sure to keep your eyes on his hands, for it is there that his dagger will appear, keen and cruel.

When life gives you a beautiful wife, a beautiful house and puts you behind the wheel of a large automobile, it's the 80s.
