#WriteRoom is an English chatroom only. We know that a lot of people speak different languages, but we don't. If you need help with your English send a note to the moderators and they will get back to you with translation tools.
The following are more considered guidelines than rules

The End of the Twinkie?http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2012/11/16/hostess-twinkies-ding-dongs-wonder-bread-going-out-of-business/1708409/The End of the Twinkie?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a

Tolkien was, undeniably, a genius, but, for the love of creativity and dynamism; read another f**king book, people.
There's a world of culture, history and myth out there to seek inspiration from! Fantasy should be an exciting, twisted reflection of the world around us, not an endless stream of pirated Lord of the Rings DVDs.

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.

Party PoopersRussian politicians really like trying to associate cultural elements that they personally don’t like with things that are universally frowned upon, in the hope that the latter poisons the former in the public's view.Party Poopers1 year ago in Personal More Like This
During the lead up to the Winter Olympics in February, for example, while large gentlemen with flails were beating the sh*t out of small, female protesters, Putin seemed to make a great effort to always mention homosexuals and paedophiles in the same sentence, as though the two were somehow linked.
I’m not suggesting that politicians elsewhere in the world don’t pull the same trick in order to rally a hysterical mob in their favour, but the Russians do it with all the subtlety of a brick.
In what I’m assuming is less an effort to protect the fragile psyche of Russia’s youth and more an attempt to thwart another dastardly Western concept (namely f

Ever since "Lorcraft" cropped up in Sequential Art, I've been working on an RPG system for an actual, pen-and-paper Lorcraft game and have a few really good ideas that should (in theory) work.
It's a ways off yet, though. It's the kind of thing that'll need some serious playtesting, and I have a zillion other projects to conclude first (LITTLEVICTORYLITTLEVICTORYLITTLEVICTORY!)
Last chicken in Sainsbury's“Dirty Bird”, a fried chicken vendor in Wales, has been forced to defend its choice in logo:Last chicken in Sainsbury's1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.
Seeing one of Dirty Bird’s recent promotional images, however; one might be given cause to doubt their professed innocence.
And people ask why I like living on this spiteful little island

I do look a bit....rumpled, there. I didn't realise it was going to be filmed!
The other chap in the clip is Ryan Stevenson, who did most of the character concept work in the game.
Top notch artist. He still works at Rare so most of the content he produces is under wraps, but try to find some if you can! It's well worth keeping an eye out for!

Something that be horrible and wretched. An IDF war crime. Something that keyboard warriors would go to en masse on the internet. Cries of stop the genocide would come down. All of it would be horrible... if it was real. This photo was not form Gaza, it isn;t even from the Middle East nor is it bloody real. It's taken from a horror movie Final Destination 4.
This was pointed out to me by my Israeli-Arab friend :iconDelahkel:. Searching further into this I even found the clip form the mentioned movie.

Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

Lex Luthor: A manipulative mastermind. A hugely successful industrialist. A brilliant businessman apparently born to be both the brains and figurehead of a multinational mega corporation. A man whose actions got him all the way to the White House. A man who is as charming and commanding as he is evil and power-hungry.
A man being played by Jesse Eisenberg, the weedy guy that played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network……and whose voice sounds like a duck being raped by a chipmunk.

First, buy a couple of novelty cocktail cups that look like bean tins.
Then, throw together some basic meat and gravy (or just buy a separate tin of the stuff. Stewed beef in gravy is a good one. Has the right look about it)
Serve in aforementioned cocktail cup.

SJW (Social Justice Warrior) and how to crush themOne of the clear signs of a ProgSheep (aka “Zero sum game kind of Leftist”) being pushed into a corner, knowing that it’s at the end of its rope, is that its mental faculties will start to melt down completely and it will start to lash out in ever more angry and insane ways.SJW (Social Justice Warrior) and how to crush them11 months ago in Personal More Like This
A perfect example would be the Social Justice Warrior variant of the ProgSheepspecies and their antics as of late.
Beset by an overwhelming (and sadly, often unjustified) sense of lack of worth, they’ve devoted their lives to making sure that nobody else is enjoying themselves either.
Like any other ProgSheep subculture, they simply cannot stand anybody doing something they enjoy, because their happiness is a constant reminder of how utterly bereft of joy their own lives are, just as they cannot bear the thought of anybody being successful as that serves as a painful reminder of just how spectacularly they have failed to achieve anything of value themselves.
Thus they constantly strive

Ah, Social Justice Warriors. SJWs, hypocritical assholes, the cancer of the internet. Whatever you choose to refer to them as, we all know they're the ones who claim to be all for a certain thing, or are trying waaaay too hard to stand up for what they believe in when all they're really doing is being cruel to others and probably don't have a clue about the cause they're 'fighting' for nor care about it when the shit hits the fan.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with social justice. Not at all. We need someone to keep the peace, but then again, we're always going to have idiots and less-than-civil people who are going to cause trouble. To be honest, I didn't know what a SJW was until now. I saw how much people hated them and figured it may be a decent topic to rant about, so I looked it up. It's pretty much what I suspected but never cared ab
