    I'm in the process of brainstorming ideas for a jungle adventure story. One of them has a white male explorer get captured by angry natives after trespassing into their sacred ground, and they plan to execute him through some brutal means I haven't decided on yet. In the end a native huntress swings to the guy's rescue and fights off his would-be executioners.

    As much as I'd love to write a damsel-rescues-dude adventure, there's still the trick of writing the native antagonists in a way that doesn't carry unfortunate implications.

    If "embiggen" were a actual word, what would be its opposite? Ensmallen?
     
  3. What if the cake isn't a lie?

    I'd still rather have pie.

  10. I hate doing my taxes. There is no reason this should be so complicated!

    I'm of half the mind that the people who wrote these laws need to be executed in a very public way for being wantonly convoluted and confusing.

    I don't know about execute, but those types of people were put in stockades so the people could throw rotten veggies at their heads. All you need is a bad tomato and a clear shot at a tax collector. :p

  12. That could work too, if we can ensure they do not go out and reproduce and make little crazy babies who can't make things clear.

    Plato: Blah, blah, blah, blah.
    Descartes: Bing, bang, bing, a bing bang.
    Aristotle: bljlkalkjdf

    This was on an essay prompt for my philosophy class. Thank you, instructor, for summing up these ideas so succinctly :D.

    Your instructor forgot Socrates: "I drank what?"

    [I can't take credit for this line. It's from the movie Real Genius.]

    I swear the WYSIWYG post-editing tools have disappeared on my browser. I also have trouble with adding spaces between paragraphs.

    So I've been sick lately, and the weird thing about being sick is that it reminds me of childhood. Like, I find myself remembering childhood more vividly now that I'm sick. I even find myself enjoying cartoons more while being sick than I would otherwise, and am more receptive to fantastical powers in those cartoons.

    My family's been getting bad allergies now. I've just recovered, my kid brother and sister are bouncing off the walls and both parents are stuffed up. Even the dogs are acting weird. I think humans with stuffy, sneezy noses give them restless sleep. For the last three nights both dogs have had loud, active dreams. It's cute until they roll off the bed.
     
  19. I managed to do something bad to my back. I finally broke down and seen my doctor on Monday.
    She gave me some meds, one is the equivalent to a Disney themed band aid, the other however, is serious business.
    I took it and slept for 19hrs straight! :eek: A friend called me, during this sleeping time and I just barely recall having a conversation. I do clearly recall not being able to string thoughts together quickly or coherently. I ordered a pizza for husband at dinner time and apparently told them one thing when I wanted something other. That made for an interesting wrong order call.
    I've decided that I'll just have to suffer during the day, until husband gets home at night, because someone has to watch the puppy.
    He tends to get into all kinds of trouble if he is not watched like a hawk.
    I can say, however, that my insomnia is no longer an issue with this med.
    Not really a random thought, more like a random update. I suppose the thought would be "Holy crap Batman, don't take the pills unless you want to be knocked out like Alice as she fell down the rabbit hole!"

    To Indie publish, or not to Indie publish, that is the question. Seriously, in this day and age, traditional or something else?
