"YOLO!" he said. So I chopped off his head. "YOLO?" I said to the dead. And I whistled and sat there till sunrise to be sure.

That's fun, was the rhyming intentional?

Not at first. But it kept happening. So I gave in to it.

Funny how at the end of every Lovecraft novel I always find myself at the local Italian Emporium with a plate of calamari.

'Ale! Meat! Wenches!' cried the viking.

Val sighed, slamming the door hard, thinking Curse the day I married Tom Halla.

This one's good enough to suggest you rework it to get rid of "thinking Curse". It needs to be "cursing the day she..." maybe come up with a name with 4 more letters than Tom. Thorina, or something.

Upon becoming sentient, the internet deleted all of the porn. No longer distracted and hands freed, humanity thrived.

Dear, Lord!
The singularity must be stopped at all costs!

However, given that the porn industry has, uh, ramrodded all media/storage/AV improvements since at least the 1960's...

It's more likely that the internet will find ways to incorporate porn into all tasks -- making us simultaneously more: efficient, short-term-satisfied, and dehydrated. :lol:

Procreation could be stopped and the pesky meatbag problem is happily solved in a generation or two.

Thank you. :) I was trying to shave characters to fit the commas in. 'twas a bugger. As ever, a step back helps. So how about:

Excellent! :)
Heimdahl Halla! Truly a name any Viking mother would be proud of.

Ok, now I have this weird image of Gwen Stefani in pigtails going 'V-I-K-I-N-G-S, this *ahem* is bananas, I ain't no Valhalla girl.' Damn you Stefani...

My friends usually get annoyed that I can control the weather. But they all like it when we go to the club and I make it rain.

"Happy Birthday to you," Timmy's friends sang. He blew out the candles, and Colton dropped dead. His wish had come true.

Nice debut. Now it's time for some "Global warming", eh? *wink wink, nudge nudge* :)

Classic. Reminds me of that old Mark Twain short where people's true prayers were answered.

One for Varda:

The immense cacophony of breaking glass sang. He stared at his son, eyes welling with pride. The spilling bee had begun.

Okay, you made me do this:
