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...

(Wondering if you figured out who the girl is. Just yes or no, please. The clues are there but I'm hoping it isn't too obvious.)

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...

In SOuth Carolina there is (or was - it's been a long time since i was out that way) a stretch of US 29 where there's a mile difference in distance one the southbound and northbound lanes between Greenville and Spartanburg.

Any word on how long Paul's gonna have to take off? This is one of those things that takes however long it takes. And nobody knows how long that is until it's all over but the paperwork and ceremonies. I've seen similar situations that were expected to be just days, turn out to be months. And the o...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

I'm not quite sure, but I think the same is true with a d20. There's certain kinds of dice where that doesn't hold true, though. We used to have some six-sided dice where, if you picked the correct two of the four, you were guaranteed to always roll 7 or 11. On one of those two the opposite-sides t...

Nudge needs to see a farrier. She's starting to get ragged "snowshoe" hooves.
I would think Nudge can trim her own toenails.

Or maybe she and Phix trade off giving each other pedicures.

Re: Ubuntu Studio 18.04

I'd assumed reinstalling the OS would reset the menus to a 'fresh install config', but- nah. VLC & SMPlayer, et al are still there, but they used to live in a sub-menu all their own, and that menu has been deleted. Most likely, a portion of the menu is system-wide and a portion is user-specific. Th...
