Essay: Why Creating Jobs is the Wrong GoalEssay: Why Creating Jobs is the Wrong Goal4 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
Draygon, Terror of MaridiaThe darkness wrapped the whole room in a deep, unrelenting gloom as I jumped off the ledge to the floor below. My Gravity Suit assisting me, I fell through the surprisingly clear waters, and I fell even further than I thought I would. I dropped to the sandy ground, sinking such a distance that even with the Gravity Suit I wouldn't be able to reach the ledge I had taken the leap from.Draygon, Terror of Maridia4 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Looking for an alternate exit, I surveyed the room again. If I had failed to notice the exact depth on my first look, maybe I hadn't noticed something else. I swept the submerged chamber full circle, Arm Cannon ready for anything wanting to catch me off guard.
Instantly my mind went into combat mode. Where did that come from? I couldn't find what had made that roar, or knew if it was coming for me.
That one was definitely closer. Unlike the last one, I could actually tell the direction this one came from. I turned in that direction, waiting for whatever ha

Keeping the Balance Part 1 - SMBThere wasn't much to occupy the wooden toy as it made its way through the overgrown foliage. The whisperings of wishes were replaced by the hooting of owls, peace was abandoned instead for the scritching and scratching of the creatures that lived in the woods, and the glittering lights of the stars were blocked out by the dense canopy. Long before this point, any sane person would have abandoned the hidden paths, creaking branches, and suspicious trees of the forest and opted to go home, perhaps even make some hot cocoa. But this was not the determination of a person, but rather a spirit. Not born of decay, he hailed from above, following the orders of a higher authority.Keeping the Balance Part 1 - SMB4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Crocomire, Scourge of NorfairThe tunnel had been dug under the surface of the planet Zebes, deep within the crust of the region they called Norfair. It seemed like your run-of-the-mill mining tunnel, it was perfectly cylindrical and plenty wide its entire run, and had tool marks etched in all the surfaces. The soft red rock that made up the majority of the crust here enclosed the entire space, leaving only three exits. The first two of those were the ends of the tunnel, wherever past they lie. The third was my entrance, embedded in the ceiling leading to another cavern.Crocomire, Scourge of Norfair4 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
I walked down one of the paths the tunnel offered me, and soon I came across a strange creature. It seemed to be asleep, oblivious to my very presence. All I could see of it in the tunnel's poor lighting was a thick, red hide and eight beady eyeballs behind closed lids. Not looking for a fight, I snuck past it and went on.
A bit further down the cave, I found that part of the floor was submerged. But it wasn't water, no, it was something else entir

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

She had a wonderful home, and many happy servants, but she did not know the meaning of true love.

Have you ever tried to talk to an artists you admire on DA and s/he ignores you?
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.

"I don't know," Peach said troubled,"you only want to do that 'cause you have someone to slow dance with!"
Daisy gave a big grin and giggled, "Soooo, what's your point?"
Peach sighed and wrote down her suggestion with a question mark after it.
"Maybe I shouldn't even throw a party for Valentine's day..." Peach still had that uneasy tone in her voice, "I mean, people are gonna want to be alone. Not surrounded by people and...stuff!"

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.

"But, it was MY idea to get a ring," Luigi whined.
Mario had given the ring he found earlier to the princess, and out of joy she rushed to the party to show Daisy.
Peach just sighed and gazed lovingly at her jewelery, ignoring Luigi. Mario was proud that he had been the source of her joy.
"Is that what you got me?" Daisy asked with innocence. Luigi nodded and gave a big grin.
"Oh," Daisy said looking at the floor, "I wanted chocolate."
Luigi gave her a look of hatred, and just warned her: "I'm NOT talking to you anymore."
Daisy gave him a hug, but his anger stayed written on his face.
As the princess, Peach was greeting all her guests and discussing world affairs. Every person who she shook her hand noticed her ring, and gave compliments. When Peach returned to her friends, she whispered to Mario:
"If this was for Valentine's day," she was pointing to the ring,"does this mean you're my Valentine?

Mario and Luigi had just entered, and were looking for a familar face. Daisy was walking towards them, waving to get their attention. It was a formal party; Daisy had ordered for a designer dress to be sewn, just for the party. Each step she took was dainty, with no sign of her tomboyish attitude. Her dress was sleeveless and a bright yellow with an orange trim that curved to outline her chest. It had her trademark flower gem in the center. The cloth came to a halt just above her knees. After that, only red shoes were covering her feet!
"Hey, I think half her dress is missing," Mario teased, "I think she's implying something."

It was finally Valentine's day eve! Everyone was sleeping soundly knowing that soon it would be their time to shine and have fun with those they cared about. Well, almost everyone. It was about midnight and Mario was still brainstorming for the perfect gift. He knew this was the year, but he was running out of time. It technically wasn't the eve, but the actual day! What could he think up in the hours he only had left?
He headed to the front yard of the his house, outside to get some need fresh air. It was pitch black, and the only light available was that from the moon. This made it almost imposable for Mario to spot the shadowy figure in the distance. It gave a sinster, mind shattering laugh!

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
