Re: "Crossbows" Discussion

Zombies is the cleanest fit for a crossbow and arcane experimentation. Guns attract more of them and close combat is needlessly risky/accomplishable with improvised or common gear. A crossbow would be a clear leg up in terms of surviving a zombie apocalypse. Likewise bolts are recoverable or craftab...

Re: "Egg Drop Failure" Discussion

Ah, egg drops bring out the geek nostalgia big time. My favorite was an egg carefully taped to the center of a small cardboard panel. The look on everyones' face as I set that next to their varied contraptions was priceless. But not as priceless as their faces when it spun to safety from any height ...

Re: "Theft of the Magi" Discussion

Argh, [i]nobody's explained what a dueling harness is for a Roomba yet![i] Despite quite a few requests. Is it some inside joke? Think of it as cockfighting spurs for robotic vacuum cleaners. Roombas are round and would have a very hard time damaging each other. Whereas if you strap spikes to them ...

Re: "House of Pancakes" Discussion

WelI I didn't find the book particullarly terrifying. Certionly engrossing and fun to decivher though. Like one of thos " Spot X things wrong with this picture" in book form. Ekcept subtler in origin and less acessable. Nothing at all like my heavy hand attempt. Velociraptor Vloci raptor V...

Re: "Math Paper" Discussion

I like this one. the last frame is very good. 'I'm sorry, We're Revoking Your Math License.'. would someone be ultimately doomed without their math license?? Esp. day to day life. imaging the trouble in adding a bill, working out a tip and calculating the distanced saved using a good short cut with...

Re: (Post Your) Incredible Poems (Here!)

My timing is a little off season-wise, but I got a definite autumn feeling from today's weather. This is a first draft so any polishing advice would be appreciated: St. George of Days The light of autumn falls wounded on my porch, Throttled with haze and stillness. Netted and nestled in a hammock I ...

Re: "Journal 3" discussion

My best explanation of why the sub is necessary: Effort. The more effort he spent to find her, the more gratifying it is for her. She predicted he would become obsessed with her. Him chasing her down with a sub would have been a complete victory to BHW, whether he directly challenged her or professe...

Re: "Nightmares" Discussion

I'm surprised more attention hasn't been paid to the "the" part. As in the regular nightmares.

Re: "Anti-Mindvirus" Discussion

You don't fight The Game with logic. Disdain is your greatest tool. Face to face works best. It's also good to bring a fellow hater along with you to give greater social weight to your treatment. Steer the conversation with the suspected game player towards subject in which the word 'game' features ...
