Weight Loss PlanA man calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program.
The next day, there's a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck.
She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company.
The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me."
Without a second thought, he takes off after her.
A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up.
The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens.
On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs. as promised.
He calls the company and orders their 5-day/20 pound program.
The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning and beautiful woman he has ever seen in his life.
She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, "If you catch me you can have me."
Well, he's out the d
Protesting SOPA ~ January 18th Internet BlackoutDo you like DeviantART? How about YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, and much more?Protesting SOPA ~ January 18th Internet Blackout3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then SOPA and PIPA have the power to effect you drastically. These bills will take away your freedom to use the internet and go to the websites you love.
As a protest of #SOPA and #PIPA (The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act) two pieces of legislation that are up for debate once again on January 18, 2012, I will not be online.
This applies to everyone! Share this message as much as you can and don't allow your freedoms to be stolen away.
These bills are not dead. Even gigantic websites like Wikipedia and Tumblr are taking part. However, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't take part; this movement needs you.

"A number of people are asking why this is important. It is first off important to remember that one of the reasons I am sharing this on deviantART is dA is one of the websites that SOPA could seriously hurt. As is YouTube. Facebook. Wikipedia.

Irege Ch. 1A crackling sound echoes around me. They sound a bit familiar, but I am not aware of why I hear them. I slowly open my eyes to meet flames. All around me, roaring flames danced about. Taking oxygen away and burning whatever was in its path. Fire, such a beautiful and yet destructive thing.Irege Ch. 11 year ago in Profiles More Like This
I then slowly rose to my knees, hoping I wouldn't get caught in the blaze. The entire castle where I grew up in was slowly burning.
I could hear soft, agonizing mumbling. Sounds of someone being slowly burnt to death. I held my stomach with my left hand and covered my mouth with my right, trying not to throw up from hearing the awful sounds.
How did all of this happen? I only remember so little... Some of these memories aren't even mine.
I guess the only way for me to find out... is to go back all the way to the beginning.
I remember a large forest, lush in plant life and an amazing scenery. It was tropical, like visiting a famous tourist spot. All around where famous animals, mostly bi

September 11th poemSeptember 11th poem6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One day, a few terrorists gathered,
they had a plan, that's what mattered.
This plan was evil and bad,
they knew it would make every American sad.
On that day, they high-jacked a plane,
no one knew it would happen, this was insane!
The plane had hit the first tower,
everyone in New York begun to run and cower.
30 minutes later, the second plane hit,
the ambulence arrived and took out their kits.
Many people died, and tears started to pour,
that's when George Bush had declared war.
The terrorists will eventually regret,
and September 11th is a day we'll never forget.
GrayIm sorry!Gray4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
i didn't mean it!
Please don't use that fist to hit!
Im just a girl!
Please im begging you!
Don't do what your about to!
Im sorry daddy!
These are the last words
That i ever heard
Escape my sisters lips
Before that monster punched and ripped
He took his fist and smashed it hard
Her screams he would disregard
And my pleads he ignored
Then He grabbed a metal cord
wrapped it twice around her face
He squeezed and blood escaped from Grace
I cried and hit his back
It earned me a nice hard smack
when he was finally done
I left the house and started to run
And for the first time i asked for help
He was arrested that night
The cop told me everything would be alright
I shook my head and told him he lied
My little sister has dyed
Things will never be okay
Because of him my days will always be gray
I Reach Out to YouI gasp as I feel the impact of the bullet enter my abdomen.I Reach Out to You3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I reach out to you to catch me, but I stumble and fall to the ground with a crash.
I hear very few sounds as I lay flat on the ground. Running footsteps, a gasp, police sirens, and the crash of garbage cans as cats dash across and knock them over.
You rush to me, and whisper in my ear it will be ok, as you pull me into your arms.
I try to keep my eyes open, but I feel my control start to seep out of my body.
You tell me to keep my eyes open, to keep fighting, to hold on.
I open my eyes, and fight to keep them open.
I reach out to you, my hand softly touching your face, feeling the warmth radiate from it.
Suddenly you're being pulled away from me. I don't see who, but you're struggling.
I hear you yelling, you won't leave me, you can't watch the person you love die.
There are other voices, but I can't tell what they're saying.
You're crying now. I don't see it, but I can tell. Tears are cascading do

The loading bar blinked at me. It had been stuck on that number for a good minute or so and I was getting sick to death of watching it, but what else could I do? It locked down my whole computer to do this, and my computer was my life. I'm a software technician for the government, you see. I'm working on this new top-secret project and they keep forcing security checks and updates on our systems every few hours. I can't stand it. There's nothing else to do here and with the computer locked down it's almost like being in purgatory.
We were recruited straight out of university, my fellow colleagues and I. Lured with promises of a big fat paycheck and free room and board. All the health benefits you could possibly think of. They forgot to mention that the 'free room and board' is provided in an underground facility. That's a secret too; even I don't know where I am. They blindfolded me to bring me here.
The paycheck was everything

Dad have one too.
There's something I need to say,
but it's really hard to do.
Mom you hate gays.
Dad, you don't like them.
You always pushed them away,
even if they were your best friend.
Mom, you say they're sinners.
And that they're going to burn.
But why do you say that?
You know that they're hurt.
Alright,Alright let me try again.
You both don't want gay kids.
But...I'm not really yours.
The DNA doesn't fit.
I know I'm adopted,
but this confession still scares me.
If I tell you the truth,
am I out the family?
Mom,Dad I'm so sorry.
But this I have to say.
it turns out ever since I was 12,
I was actually gay.
