Picture a country. A country that is the envy of the world. It is new and strong, expanding across a whole continent. Everyone seems happy and prosperous. It has a small and efficient government running it. It is led by certain religious values. It has a strong political system. It has a powerful military and seems to win every war it fights. It has an expanding social program to help people.
However, not everything is how it seems. The religious values are in decline, and no longer do people follow them. That strong political system has been damaged by corrupt politicians. The military is indeed powerful, but its high and rising spending is crushing the country. So to is that social program. It gives welfare to the unemployed, but the unemployed have become incredibly lazy and unemployment is rising. Unemployment is rising due to the arrival of slavery. With slaves working for nothing, businessmen no longer need actual workers of their country and thus they become unemployed. Eventual

Situational Dialogue ExerciseThe intent of this exercise is for the character to react to each situation in a manner unique to who they are, or at least to who you have created them to be. Some of these situations are similar, I will admit, but they should prove different enough to help understand the thoughts and actions of characters in their dialogue from their perspective.Situational Dialogue Exercise3 years ago in Sketches More Like This
Some things to avoid:
Yelling "You B#####d!" any time a disadvantageous situation appears.
The plain-face "Well s##t" remark gets old very, very quickly, and says almost nothing about the character.
Use of "Tch" or "Heh" to represent a tough guy should be sparing, at best. Watch Eastwood. The man hardly says anything at all.
Monologues are almost always unnatural. When was the last time you received a full lecture about how life works and how views are emotionally charged from someone who can't possibly have more of a hold on it all than you? Never. And yet, it happens in OC d

In the Year of Our Lord 2039, in a galaxy much like our own, whole cities and entire nations were wiped out in what came to be called the Thirteen Day War. No one knows who fired first, but aftermath of the nuclear dark ages that followed would have far-reaching consequences. By the year 2129 AD, the United Earth Government was established in Brisbane, Australia, bringing together the shattered remnants of civilization. For the first time in history, all humanity was unified as one species, especially as people sallied forth into the Solar System and beyond. The oneness of mankind however could only go so far before human nature and history once more came into the picture. In due time, the burgeoning space colonists grew restless with United Earth.

Regarding Gun Control and Concealed CarryRegarding Gun Control and Concealed Carry2 years ago in Settings More Like This
Time to start a new battlefield for the gun debate.
The shooting in Newport, Conneticut was tragedy. The number of deaths from this shooting and shootings in other states has led the Democrats to start beating the gun control drums and taking some kind of federal legislative action to tighten regulations. This would be a mistake and I am about to explain to you how it is. My essay on gun control and concealed carry laws will have no distractions. What I am about to bring to you are cold hard facts. Nothing can refute logic.
I am a proponent of concealed carry laws. I have always supported it and I feel the need to defend concealed carry laws (CCW for short) in order to prevent a dramatic blunder from happening. CCW laws have strongly benefited the United States. Speaking the U.S., there are only two places that have completely tried to ban guns (eventually stuck down by the Supreme Court). Those two places were the state of Illinois (and more specifically Chicago) and the Di
The Presidents: Calvin CoolidgeThe Presidents: Calvin Coolidge2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
With Warren Harding's death came John Calvin Coolidge. Coolidge is in many ways reviled and criticized by liberals for being a bad president, but looking at his presidency shows that he was a very popular and actually a formidable opponent to the progressive movement. Coolidge would continue many of the prosperous policies that Harding created and made the country very wealthy. He was born in rural Vermont on the Fourth of July in 1872. In the small farming town he held many responsibilities and jobs at an early age. He never wrote later that he has any childhood friends. He graduated from Amherst College in Massachusetts and became a lawyer. The quiet young man received a classical American education. Ever since he was thirteen, he had a major interest in the Constitution and held views similar of those of the Founding Fathers. Like several Founders, Coolidge studied Greek and Latin. He read writings by different philosophers and by several major Ame

The tale of the brothers Elric is as enigmatic and surprising as their rise and fall in he history of popular culture. It is a history filled with as many rumors as there are facts. Although their births and origins in Germany are accepted as common knowledge, including the death of their mother sometime in their childhood, some still claim that the records prior to the early 1920s were either fabricated or nonexistent. This could simply be the result of their habit of keeping mum about their private lives, though more fanciful conspiracists from thinking otherwise. That this other world would in part define the brothers’ subsequent work can only be described as a coincidence.
Their first appearance in the public eye, so to speak was in Munich, where the elder if somewhat short brother Edward studied under Dr. Karl Haushoffer. It’s also known that he lived with his father

Taking Back France
In August 1944, Allied troops arrived in Paris. They had successfully invaded France and were now marching on the capital. Even as Hitler ordered the German commanders in charge of occupying the city to destroy the capital's monuments and burn all the buildings, the German troops surrendered. Paris celebrated tremendously. After years of brutal occupation, the Germans had finally been kicked out. French commander Charles de Gaulle, leader of the free French forces, declared its liberation. Meanwhile, the Allies continued fighting and moved east towards Germany. As they did so, the Germans were retreating in confusion. One of the reasons the Germans were doing so poorly on the western front was because the vast majority of their troops were in the east trying to take on the impossible task of defending Germany from the Soviet Union. Now Germany was fighting on three fronts. The Allies were moving east from France and north from Italy while the Soviet Union moved west

The last place one would expect to find an example of mental illness in the movies is a Disney movie, much less one about video games. But part of what makes the main antagonist of Disney's newest feature, Wreck-It Ralph, so intimidating is the fact he's shown to be quite clearly not all there throughout the film's run time. He's introduced as a seemingly jovial chap who rules a cutesy racing game called Sugar Rush, in which he regularly competes for the prize of a gold coin that allows him to compete in future races. What seems to be cooky personality tics turns into something far more sinister when his rule is challenged by a young girl known to the Sugar Rush racers as "the Glitch", who he has forbidden to race for fear that the game will reset itself and he will be removed as king.
An official diagnosis is never given in the film; he's simply depicted as a vaudevi

The Rage virus was discovered as a side effect of the human genome project.
The virus had hid within the genetic code of humanity and its ancestors for eons, and might well have not been discovered for generations: luck and chance played a major role in its discovery.
Human stupidity played the dominant role in its study, though.
The discovery that this ancient genetic intruder played a major role in the biochemical roots of aggression led some people to think wow, we may have found the key to ending hatred, others to think wow, we’d better not mess with this sucker, and still others to think wow, bet the military would fork out a lot of cash for research into this.
Guess which groups got the funding?
Who the bright boy was that managed to convert the virus into a free-living form remains unknown. However, it was apparently in May of 2002 that it mutated in one of the test animals into a far faster reproducing virus, creating Virus ZR-17, or, as it became popul
The Presidents: Ronald ReaganThe Presidents: Ronald Reagan2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
Ronald Wilson Reagan would start and leave his presidency incredibly popular. He would become known as the "Great Communicator" with the American people, largely due to his years as an actor. He was the oldest man to ever be elected and he would have one of the most revolutionary presidencies in history. Reagan was born in 1911 in Tampico, Illinois and lived through his early years in a family of modest means. When he was a teenager, he first got interested in politics. President Calvin Coolidge was in the White House and his economic policies of cutting taxes and reducing government spending inspired Reagan. Nevertheless, after graduating from Eureka College in 1932, he voted for Democrat Franklin Roosevelt. He worked as a radio sports announcer before being offered a contract from Warner Brothers in 1940. In the 1950s, Reagan worked for the Sunday television show "General Electric Theater" and eventually entered politics. He married Nancy Davis whil

The staff sergeant was prepping his M4A1 carbine before he looked up at the rest of us.
"Get some!" He shouted. "Move, move! Get out of this fuckin' bird! GO, GO!"
The ramp hit the deck and we ran off. The rotor-wash whipped dust and small flyers around; looking back at the Osprey I could see sparks from incoming rounds. The bird was taking a lot of fire from the building across the street from the DPRK Korean People's Army Ground Forces. Probably just NKorea Type-68 AKM-copies.
