DADDY DOES SIGN LANGUAGE
By Rachel Alysson Hart
One day as My Dad went into the Store,
For a Man he Held Open the Door
The Man was on His Cell Phone
So Daddy went On
And the Man said, "What the Hell was That For?!"
Daddy Touched His Chin, His Chest,
And His Palm
And the Man's Expression then Became Calm
"I'm Sorry," He said, "I Didn't Know...You..."
"Don't be Such a Jerk," Daddy said,
"You Never Know Who you Might Run Into."

Everyone makes me want to die
I think I'm obsessed with suicide
Everyday I watch the rain
And stab myself, I love the pain
I lie to them and say "I'm okay"
Everyday I see my friends
They say they care and I say "When?"
This cycle never seems to end
Everyday I say hi
And you just walk on by
PLease just stop with the lies
Today I look outside
And I realize I have already died
Now I can see the light

" AGH!!!!! Honestly I am not a child I can take care of myself you bloody git!" yells (name) slamming the door leaving Ian's house. " Good gosh its as like I'm taking care of a idiot, and he tells me that I cant go out in the woods after 6pm is beyond me," you sigh and walks down the worn down path into the woods to clear your mind.

Youve committed no crimes
And youve saved no lives
You didnt pull the trigger
But you didnt take the bullet either
And you didnt push her into the water
But you didnt dive in to save her
Youve done nothing villainous
Youve done nothing heroic
When it comes to emotion
Youve stayed at a distance
And your attitude,
Its always indifference
When there is need for urgency
All you give out is apathy
So now you can never say youve killed a man
So now you can never say youve saved a man
You can never speak of your sins
You can never speak of your virtues
You are simply there
Idly observing the world pass by
Lack of opinion, lack of reaction
Lack of reaction, lack of any action
I wonder if you feel left behind.
Youve never felt pain
Youve never felt pleasure
Youve only felt the glass of the window
Pressed against your nose
As you watch the world
Move faster and faster

The Order of Sublime SimulacraKamon woke to the sound of bells and saws. The ceremony must have started hours ago; there was invigorating yellow sunlight outside the gauzy curtains. Kamon's Self was intoning eight o'clock, eight o'clock with all the insistence of a song looping in his head.The Order of Sublime Simulacra4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Flesh brain, he thought, you should have caught that alarm. Sometimes the flesh was louder than the devices supposed to make it properly quiet. The flesh insisted on the persistence of the Real. This was exactly the type of lesson that the brothers were supposed to learn, and Kamon hoped that relaying to the abbot how thoroughly he had learned it might lighten the inevitable punishment that came from reminding himself of himself. (Of course, that punishment would still be severe. He was going to arrive at the ceremony so late--)
On the orders of his Self, Kamon moved blearily out of bed and into the shower. (Rules For The Sanctum Three and Four, said his Self. Wear a clean robe. Wear a clean body.) Li

Arya was the first to recover, and quickly performed the bow in the correct way. "Atra du evínya ono varda," she replied, continuing the elvish greeting. Eragon and Saphira recovered at this, and also continued the elvish greeting.
Heavyn smiled at this, and finished with, "Un atra mor'ranr lífa unin hjarta onr," the optional third and final line of the greeting.
As she did this, her friends looked at the four of them with confusion.
"Um, Heavyn what did you just do?" asked Sora.
Heavyn looked back at her friends. "I just greeted them the traditional elvish way," she replied, shrugging her shoulders.
"Yes, but how do you know so much about our customs?" asked Arya politely. As Heavyn looked at her, however, she could still see the suspicion lurking just below the surface.
Heavyn closed her eyes in thought, then opened them as answered honestly, "Because I come from a world that documents some of the tales of Alagaësia, an

Logical Fallacies And You. A Resource PT. 2My original post was mostly well received, which is nice. In part two, we go into the world of informal logical fallacies. Informal fallacies are arguments that are fallacious for reasons not pertaining to the basic structure of the argument, but rather the content of said argument. This is where things get complicated and also really interesting.Logical Fallacies And You. A Resource PT. 21 year ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Let's dive in.
1. Ad Hoc
" No more excuses." ~ Tony Evans
Ad Hoc is latin for 'thrown together' or 'to this' depending on who you ask. An Ad Hoc argument is one that is hastily put together to support or explain a claim without any real substance or logical framework. Because of its rush-job nature and lack of a good logical frame-work, the Ad Hoc is likely to contradict existing knowledge. Usually, an Ad Hoc is born when someone is put on the spot to explain something. They can either deal with it in a consistent manner (meaning that their arguments are consistent for all eventualities so far), change their consistent beliefs

Awwww. That happened to me, too. Except without the Lady in Black part. I'm to wimpy to go to those things. All it takes are a few trailers, and I'm already fearing the dark again. As, perhaps, it should be. I *DO* believe in some large amount of superstitious things, because some of them aren't that fake. I've dealt with some...things. And this one story I heard from my closest friend: there had been a bunch of missing persons (i dunno where), so authorities went out looking for people. They found this giant metal ring, with mutilated, nearly unrecognizable bodies all over it. On the inside, there was a giant pool of blood, from victims not in the missing case. Someone threw a rock in there, probably to test the depth. Somehow, the blood exploded, covering some people. They were rushed to the hospital to be examined. After a short while, they started screaming, and speaking gibberish about something coming, and then speaking in different languages, then they all died. It's scary stuff

I wish he had the same feelings for me... But he only sees me as a little brother. I ask him often if there something going on with him and Denmark, he always says that he doesn't like him or that i'm being crazy for saying such a thing. He just says that so i won't get hurt... He knows my feelings.
"Aren't you getting cold standing there Iceland?"
I blushed, I was surprised... Norway stood there with his beautiful smile and his blonde hair glowed in the dark.
"Ah... No... Not really... Nor..."
I smiled back embarrassed, trying to hide my pink cheeks...Maybe the dark hid them... I hope so. Norway got closer to me and stroke my cheek with his left hand.
"You're so cute when you blush like that."
I couldn't reply that, i was so embarrassed.

"Run faster Italy! What is your problem?!!" Germany shouted, glaring at the whining Italian behind him.
You smiled softly as you watched the scene before you; the Axis powers training. But you weren't watching Germany or Italy. Sure they were your friends but honestly you didn't care about them right now. No .you were watching your friend Japan.
You had been friends with Japan for a long time now and in all honesty, you had fallen for him. You had pretty much fallen in love with him from day one. Those beautiful brown eyes and his silky black hair and perfect skin and his absolutely adorable accent everything about him made your heart pound.
There was only one thing that bothered you though. The day you met Japan, you tried to hug him. You were absolutely unaware that he felt very uncomfortable with that sort of thing. His face had filled with panic and he hadn't even let you touch him.
It had been a whole year of you two being friends and you still hadn'

De alguna manera... lograste lo que siempre quisiste
durante mucho tiempo me negué a olvidarte
y ahora me doy cuenta, que lo desperdicie
mi vida te jure, mi alma te entregue
durante los días te soñé, y en mi futuro te imagine
ahora solo queda una sombra marcada en mi vida
solo queda un pedazo de cielo oscuro
un pedazo de cielo gris en un mundo a colores
pero que más da, mira hacia el frente
sigue caminando mientras el mundo gira
gira y gira y el color aparece
no voltees para atrás nunca jamás
hiciste un juramente de olvido de un pasado
olvida, duerme, guarda y cierra
es la única opción para vivir
continua, vive, disfruta y ríe
si, lo sé, estas cerrado y olvidaste lo que era amar
pero tu vida de igual manera podrás continuar
nunca dejes de andar en un mundo que te da la oportunidad
de seguir a diario para encontrar la felicidad...

Ryan rolled over his mattress, letting one arm snake to the other side of the bed. Sensing the absence of a familiar form, he opened his eyes to find that Rylie was not lying next to him. He lifted his head to see if she was anywhere in their bedroom, but there was no sign of her. The cat-shaped clock on their wall read 10a.m. Ryan woke up with a start when he saw the time; he rarely slept in.
"Ryle?" He groaned her name. Ryan could feel the muscles in his body ached from just pulling himself to sit on the bed. Missions rarely left him unscathed. Even if he came home injury-free, his tired body strained from the rigorous work he had undergone. It was pleasant to watch his wife being overwhelmed with joy that he did not need any bandages, but it did not deter her from giving him a physical check-up. Rylie sighed knowingly when she found the two bruises; one on his left shoulder, the other on his knee. Not wanting to hear her doleful concern, Ryan caressed her cheek and told her that he

"There's a kind of notion that everyone's opinion is equally valid. My arse! A bloke who's been a professor of dentistry for 40 years doesn't have a debate with some eejit who removes his teeth with string and a door!" ~Dara Ó Briain
The balance fallacy happens when two sides of an argument are assumed to have equal value regardless of their respective merits.
It's pretty much the Yin to bias's Yang. whereas bias lends too much support to one view at the detriment of another legitimate, well-supported view to give the impression of one being the only right choice, false balance gives too much leeway to a minority or unsupported view to the detriment of a well-supported view to give the impression than neither is favored.
For example: A balance fallacy is when the opinion of a man who thinks autism is caused by demons is treated with the same respect as that of an actual doctor.
Not only can this fallacy le
