Re: Medusa's Story (Formerly Patreon Only) 2019-08-13

Then there's the Texan visiting a farm in Massachusetts...

"How much land y'all workin'?"

"Forty acres."

"That all? My ranch, I can get in my truck and drive all day, and still not get to the other side of it."

"Yeah, I had a truck like that once."

Re: Recent on-line ad

Well, if I were designing a car specifically for seniors... * the seats would be higher than in a typical sedan, but not as high as in a typical SUV * the seats would be more bench-like, less bucket-like * the floor in front of the seats would be low * the door openings would be bigger, particularly...

Re: More Stuff

The current rash (heh) of bed bug infestations is driven largely by the fact that bed bugs have adapted/evolved resistance to a lot of insecticides. I have no reason to believe that the same thing wouldn't have happened, if exterminators had continued using DDT. I once read (can't find it again, or...

My only question is - what was the original Lion Tamer Incident? Monica and Kevin's Halloween costume?
My personnal guess would be Neil vs. Phix...

Re: More Stuff

Do your neighborhood recyclers a favor: take a broad tip felt pen and write "BEDBUGS" in large letters on both sides of the bags you put the mattress and box spring in.

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

If they manage to convince (or panic) even 1 in 1000 of the people whose email addresses they have harvested (and pretend to have hacked) they can probably make enough Bitcoin to pay for the address lists and software tools they purchased, and make a profit. ... As is so often the case, it's the na...

Re: The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

we crank out a lot of these but few of them make it here. Somebody gets a silly idea and throws up a rough draft of the first two-thirds of the story, then other people pitch in ideas for the other two-thirds (yeah, the math is a bit weird), and some scenes get written up and then re-written up and...

Re: The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

The task force, assembled in the conference room, finished watching the only video that covered the end of the incident. Neil - an extra in the group - chuckled. "Good job, Dixie. And you didn't break form once. Phix will be so proud." "I'm sure," Brandi agreed. "But where do we stand?" "I'm actuall...

Re: The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

A few minutes later the girl shooed the large cat into the pen, just as John got a call on his radio. "John, we don't have another free pen in there for Nessa and her cubs, do we?" "Negative, boss." "Damn. Sedate the big guy. We'll be back in five minutes and sort it out then." "Sedate Caruso. Pleas...

Re: The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

"OFF. HIM." The lion roared his displeasure at the intrusion. The child roared back, straight in the lion's face. The lion abruptly flopped on its side, tail thumping on the ground. "That's better. Now roll over." The girl grabbed one of the lion's front paws and forced the cat to roll away from th...

Re: The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

Roger, working crowd control in the Nocturnal House, heard a lot of screaming from outside. And it wasn't the usual screaming of kids playing. He stepped to the exit door and looked out. To his left, he saw a male lion calmly strolling across the lawn. To his right, a little girl in a blue dress, wa...

Re: The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

A second-grade field trip to the zoo occasionally results in interesting stories that will be retold in teachers' lounges and continuing-education workshops for decades. When the second graders are from Gryphon Elementary, the conversation decreases somewhat but the interesting reaches an entirely d...

The (Other) Lion Tamer Incident

The phone on Brandi's desk rang, a tone indicating an internal call. She set aside a wad of paperwork and picked up the receiver. "Director Oduya." "Director, this is Andrew in social-media screening. We have a weird one. Either we can ignore it completely, or it's big. Over a hundred eyewitnesses, ...

Re: June 4th - Quick Update

Yeah, but apparently "chonky" isn't necessarily fat, flabby, or chunky. Someone told me that muscles can contribute to chonk. It's a cute look, kind of like the big paws on a lynx or a snow leopard. Take a look at a real ballet dancer's legs... My daughter at 18 (after dancing since she was 5, typi...
