Modern Day Slavery"Willingly, no one chooses the yoke of slavery." -AeschylusModern Day Slavery4 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Some would say modern day slavery is parents forcing their children into chores. I'm not talking about the normal pick-up-your-clothes or clean-your-room chores. I'm talking about the help-re-tile-the-roof and clean-the-basement-even-though-you-haven't-gone-down-there-in-months ones. Whether or not those who say so are right is not of my concern.
That is to say, I can't touch that.
Most people would talk about the sweatshops in China and other places of that sort and about the fact that those 200 dollar shoes that you bought last Christmas with your babysitting money could be made by kids making maybe $2 a week. But, as you can see, I'm not most people. I don't know much about sweatshops. I have a general idea but that's all it is, a general idea. The impossible has happened: I'm afraid of information. I'm afraid that I won't be able to go to the mall and not break down crying once I see a box of Nike gym shoes. Crying

Slowly, I finger
The perfect, pink
That twine around
The white wrought iron
Of my bed.
Plants, ripple in the breeze
Over the portal,
Daffodils trail, glowing
And sparkling, gauzy dragonflies
Flutter in invisible line
Beside a purple-pink orchid
Birds peck by mountains
The size of keys
And a golden angel hovers,
Over purple sea pearls
And white oyster seeds
Above them, turquoise coral
Hangs, in a hoop
The painted phoenix soars
While the jade chi'lin
Prowls, amongst peacock quills
Under arcing, trembling starlight
Then the silk scarf second sky
Unfurls, throwing songbirds
Into the ether.
And it is complete
The whole world
Within these four white walls.

L’âme de l’Europe, comme nos cœurs, brille avec bonheur
En rappelant la grande heure révolutionnaire
Et vous, soldats! Vous rappeliez votre Empereur?
Grande Armée! Vous pourriez chanter son nom en chœur?
La perle de la France est contente de son grand avant-garde
Chaque homme sait chanter son nom; Napoléon Bonaparte!
La lumière de son âme illumine la belle gloire
Pas celle des guerres ou de l’Empire; il nous fait croire
En cet idéal méritoire, en cette victoire
Qui transcende les luttes de pouvoir ou territoire
Voilà le soleil immortel, tout le monde lui regarde
Chaque âme chante son nom au ciel; Napoléon Bonaparte!
Trois mots sacrés étaient le credo d’un héros
Qui nous unissait autour d'un nouveau drapeau
Ses couleurs flottent au vent d’Iéna à Marengo
Tout l’Europe se rappellera toujours ces mots!

Forever there to bring a stop to the cold
Scent mesmerizing, warmth intoxicating
Always wanted, always wished for
Always wished away
Tries to hold on, tries to steal the warmth
Always whisked away by the warmth of Spring

Grasping what can't be reached
A weapon in the night
A shield in the light
Always so near

10 Rules of Internet Safety I have found that this needs to be addressed. There was a recent hacking incident. The culprit is still unknown. Three accounts were hacked, and all were shut down in a matter of two hours.10 Rules of Internet Safety4 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
One of the problems was that one person gave another their password, and then the other was tricked by someone pretending to be an administrator.
Ten rules of password safety:
1: deviantART, its administrators, and its sponsors, as well as all other internet businesses and groups, are required by law to never ask you for your password.
Never, ever fall for someone asking you for your password, for they are not an administrator. If you find someone asking you for yours, go to the Help&FAQs desk immediately. Do not fall for Internet criminals or pranksters.
2: Do not ever give anyone your passwords.
PilgrimI'd been alone in the wastes for near ten days when they found me. The building I'd holed-up in might have been a bank, might have been a church; I wasn't going to call it. But its walls were stone-built, and most of them were still standing.Pilgrim1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Meals of tinned mystery-meat, and only-slightly irradiated water had kept me alive as I picked through the detritus. I found little more than empty, rusted tins, and kid's toys that had survived the fallout. That is, until I turned up the device; some relic that still had power. It came alive in my hands, splashing blue light across pitted grey stone and orange rust.
Of course, I was far from the only one interested in that trinket. My first warning was the quake; stones shifted beneath my feet and rusting I-beams groaned overhead. Still, that was more warning than most got, and I wasn't about to waste it. I grabbed my pack and ran.
I burst out of the shaking building, arriving at a cratered street. I didn't stop; the quake was hot on my heels. An
