Essay: Why Creating Jobs is the Wrong GoalEssay: Why Creating Jobs is the Wrong Goal3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
We're all job creators
I recently saw a clip of Peter Schiff interviewing an Occupy Wall Street protester. Schiff asked him how many jobs he creates, and unfortunately, the protester wasn't prepared for this question. (Although it was being filmed by Drew Carey's libertarian group called Reason TV, so if anybody did raise good points against him, we'd never see it anyway.)
Contrary to Schiff's shortsighted view of the economy, common people do create jobs. We hire orthodontists, doctors, lawyers, mechanics, plumbers, electricians, HVAC technicians, exterminators, and many other professionals. Their careers directly depend on enough working class people being able to afford to hire them.
Less directly but just as importantly, we hire businesses (and the factories and transportation companies which supply those businesses) whenever we patronize them. If they lose consumer demand (like they would if their

My ship underway to the coordinates I leaned back in my chair, my suit dematerializing around me revealing the blue zero suit beneath. Like that I took in a deep breath and relaxed.
As I did I thought of the Metroids, the parasitic life form from SR338 that seemed to have dominated my life ever since my first great battle with the Space Pirates upon the planet Zebes. I remembered how the Space Pirates had tried to use the Metroids as a bio-weapon and energy source. I had stopped them then, but it had only been the beginning
Tallon IV, Aether, the entire Phazon Crisis I had fought the Space Pirates, thwarting their experiments to use the Metroids as weapons and energy sources. It had not always been the main goal of my missions, but I had done it in the firm belief that it was better to eradicate the Metroids than to allow them to become a weapon for the Space Pirates. That had been my conviction as I descended to the surface of SR338 to eradicate the Metroid

I yawned and stretched, surprised to be on a bed. My eyelids fluttered open and I realized I wasn't on a bed. I was still in Wonderland, on one of the giant mushrooms. Apparently, I had dozed off.
"Hey there, sleepy," Hatter said from across the clearing, smiling at me. His hat and tail coat were off and his sleeves were rolled up. "You fell asleep yesterday afternoon, and we didn't feel like waking you. You slept for nearly 11 hours."
"Did I really?" I pulled myself up, sitting on the mushroom. We stared at each other. I didn't know what he thought and I hoped that he didn't know what I thought. He loved me, yes. I... I could almost see it in his eyes. Not almost; could. And I was warming to the idea. Easily. He was kind and funny and good looking. Hatter was better than I could ever have hoped for.
He nodded and stood up. "Cat? Could you give Alice something

Such Bitter Hatred...Anger.Such Bitter Hatred...5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
A steady beat of rising anger.
It was almost as though the primal beat of Zebes' molten heart had fractured, had split, and was slowly but surely making its way up. Devouring all within its path and leaving nothing but fiery caves and volcanic vents; sulphur laden air and a wavering miasma of pure hatred.
Norfair was angry.
And the Hunter did not blame it. She had often wondered if a planet could have emotion. If a compacted ball of rock and mineral floating in its predetermined course around a central star in the dark reaches of space could develop a sort of sentience of its own. Norfair had never been this active, she knew. Not until the Chozo had left. Not until the Pirates had come. Not until the once peaceful twisting maze of alien architecture had been twisted into a technological hotbed of experimentation and abuse. Just as Maridia encompassed Zebes' sadness and Brinstar its abundance of life, still scrabbling for purchase; just as Crateria showcased its desolation and th

His Spin shockwave can also reflect projectiles as well as cause a wall-bounce upon contact.

Say it to all that are near
We will always remember it's name

And I like you that way.
But you're so bad for me.
You've always been so sweet,
Always telling me that I could
Take as much of you as I want,
All the while killing me slowly.
But your kiss is delicious,
And my mouth screams more.
You taste better than I remember.
But you're going to hurt me
If I keep this up.
Don't get me wrong,
I tried to take the good with the bad at first.
But I started again,
Taking all of you, and relishing the flavor.
I've missed you but I didn't know it.
I forgot how good your taste was,
The salty and the sweet all in one.
I forgot what I was missing out on.
So, maybe I'll fall again sometime soon.
But for right now...
I think I'll have one more bite.
After all, Cake is delicious!

Kevin and Dave's mothers had signed them up for a private school. They were fed up with the constant irritation of everyday life of school. However, Kevin and Dave didn't mind it; school didn't pose a problem to either one of them. Their moms thought that they were exposed to fights, drug use and any other problem that would typically happen at school. And they were. They usually stayed out of the way of those things, too. But it was too much for their mothers to absorb that that was life. However, they also thought that Kevin and Dave were growing a bit of an attitude towards either parent. So, they signed both of them up for a private school, in which, they will both attend together as friends. The boys were confused; how were they, in anyway, 'have an attitude'? They were obediant children! They did their homework, listened to their parents and played games like any other boy would. They assumed it was probably something to do with the whole school problem.

Well, there's a few tips on how to talk to them and get more comments back...
I don't say this will always work, because some artists are just too busy, or too shy to talk back, but it will work better than if you just bluntly ask a question.
There are nice artists who will answer your question, so make them feel a bit special for doing you a favor.

A nightmare recedes, the last haze of trauma evaporating into reality. I try to remember what I dreamt about. It was probably you, but I don't remember. My head feels empty. I feel empty.
A bluish light glows through the thin curtain, pervading the room with an ominous lantern. I glance at the headboard. Your initials are still carved into the cherry wood, and the glassy oval mirror reflects a blemished complexion, sagging eyes and tousled brown hair. I exhale.
Absorbing the faint blue of the dawn, my sleepiness ebbs and something awakens in me, an impulse, the feeling that I need to be somewhere. My eyes pan to the calendar. March 23rd.

My personal challenge with this project of mine is to create an original and fully playable tabletop game using collectible cards with characters, items and elements of the Mario universe. This Mario universe covers everything seen in every Mario, Yoshi and Wario game in existence.
The initial idea and inspiration of this was to create a gameplay mechanic similar to a Paper Mario game's battle system. Characters of team A attack the characters of team B a turn, then viceversa the next turn, and so on, with low numbered and easy to count stats which are HP, Attack and Defense. Also, add the option of multiplayer matches, which lets more than two players play at the same time in a single game. Just as Paper Mario, all teams have the option to use items and character abilities by the use of Players' FP.

Hylia gazed down on her incarnation's sleeping form. A soft smile on her lips. She had done well, as the boy. Her plan had been successful. Demise would not break free of his new seal in many centuries. Her dream had finally been realized.
It had not come without sacrifice though.
She herself was merely a spirit now. A ghostly reflection of her former self. Her divine soul and power now slept permanently in the girl. She had detached herself temporarily to reminisce.
She was preparing to put her consciousness - Hylia's consciousness- to a rest. She had been fully awakened by the girl's trips to the Sacred Springs. Now finally, she would rest. She would live her own life, not as a venerated Goddess but as Zelda. She would still have the memories of Hylia but would not be burdened by them so clearly.
In fact, Hylia herself embraced the idea of such rest. Something an immortal

All is one.
Light is too discriminating. Light is fleeting. Light glorifies a thing for but a moment, and then it is gone. We are darkness. We are encompassing, eternal. We welcome all; we envelope what the light abandons. We wish that all would join us, unified in darkness. We are Dark Matter.
Unity is peace. Unity is joy. Is this not so? Why do so many resist us? Do they not wish their own happiness?
I drift among the stars, pondering. One of our scouts returns from a small planet called Pop Star, bringing troubling news. The inhabitants, the "Dream-Landers," live in perpetual chaos. They lack unity and stability. They are happy, and then unhappy, and lack control over these states of being. They follow their passions independently, forsaking unity in favor of their own selfish pleasures. Their emotions flow as the solar winds, uncontrolled and disorderly. They
The Tale of Love: A Super Paper AnalysisAhem! Today I'll tell you the story of the lost book of prophecies.The Tale of Love: A Super Paper Analysis3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
It is a tale of love...
Chapter 1: An Introduction
In the English language, "love" can mean a lot of things. "I love chocolate!" "I love you, mommy." "I I think I'm in love with you."
Love is hard to define and is often downright illogical. What love really means to us can run the gamut from claiming to love a movie, to claiming to love the child you have raised. And moreover, love doesn't even always have to be a good thing. While love is perhaps the most beautiful thing in human experience, it can also be extremely dangerous, and when directed at certain things, quite unhealthy.
Super Paper Mario claims to be a tale of love. But it's just a game, right? What could a game teach us about love? Well, nothing in itself, really. No game, book, or movie can teach a person how to love. What these stories can do, however, is show us a reflection, however refracted, of ourselves and the people around
