But...Wikipedia, ASID.
Wikifrakkinpedia!

Also, your picture omits Google holding Jesus in its hands. At least, Jesus' glasses should be Google glasses.

Nevertheless, thanks for the link.

Those are Google Glass -- the super high Def, mega bandwidth model. See how much bigger the "screen" is?

Sadly, the NSA now collects more info than he does, though.

No need to ask. Makes perfect sense:

It looked somewhat like a cat
and gave a "meow" most crabby.
But between the horn and tentacles
it damn-sure was no tabby.

Lily screamed. Her baby boy snuggled into her lap, giggling - 8 tentacles where his arms should be. "Look, Ma, no hands!"

The Google Glass "From Beyond" plugin was popular at first but the coder forgot that if we can see them they can see us too.

Writing a Google Glass hypnotizing plugin is easy. That's why a nerd succeeded where so many mad scientists had failed.

Ok, Varda...you inspired me. :mrgreen:

Susie looked at her squid-lettes. Casual space sex hadn't been a good idea. At least she could keep them in the aquarium.

Fun fact about space sex: The fluids expended, on one "money shot" cost upwards of $400 to $1000 to put into orbit (tax payer funded). That doesn't count the booze, or certain water-works, either.

It seems we are all agreed: you gotta watch out for those slippery aliens. There are, however, always some who have been around the asteroid belt:

The mirror said "lethal," but this was a casual date. Galaxina dialed her thigh-high mutant-tamer 5000's back to stun.

Fact is, many twabbles are not self-contained. They are single frames from a scene. That's the sense I have from this one, DireCari. It made me wonder if anyone could write a short story consisting of 100-character sentences. Then I thought it wouldn't be a very good short story because of pacing issues.

But what might be fun is trying it with a drabble. Call it double trouble, or twabble drabble.

I can't decide if I should give a thumb's up for the Galaxina reference, or if I should sue for making me remember that movie. :? :)

There have been attempts to do this; several on this very forum. Occasionally, a twabble and a sequel succeed. In fact, two such pairs have "won" the twabble contest. But the twabble-drabble attempts have not been anything to sneeze at. (I include my own)
