"We found weapons of mass destruction." :twisted:

"Boy meets girl. Girl dies. Damn." (Shakespeare, anyone?)

"Spring break. Boys meet girls. Orgy." (good old times)

"Minor argument. War. Death. More death."

"Ate lots. Slept. Rinsed and repeated."

"Messiah born. Messiah nailed to tree."

"Big Bang. Shit Happens. Big Crunch."
"There is, for some unfathomed reason, something almost unbearably sexy about having huge fire-breathing magical dragons flying low about the sky on moonlit nights which [are] already dangerously on the sweet and fragrant side."
-Douglas Adams

Run from spiders. They'll kill everyone.

( Swap spiders for anything else; i.e. snakes, flies, dinosaurs, zombies; and you'll get half of the SciFi channel's B-movies )

Hammer and Stern? They love crap.

(I'm still mad at them for canceling SG-1. If I knew about them when Farscape was canceled, I'd probably hate them for that too.)

Arkohn wrote:My personaly favorite short short story:

"machine. I accidentally created a time"

It was written by someone famous but for the life of me I can't remember. It was in Wired last month


That reminds me of a really short story about a professor who creates a machine that makes time run backwards. Its in the book 'Impossibility' by John D Barrow.
