Alex sat silently on his cot, carefully watching the spectacle before him. He didn't know why they gave him a cot... He never needed to sleep. Although just agreeing to everything was much easier than explaining to the crew of the Normandy why he did not need sleeping accommodations. After he and Commander Shepard toured the brand new ship (because it was just as unfamiliar to her as it was to him) Alex decided to take up residence in the cargo bay. He picked the corner that was to the right when he exited the elevator. The crew gave him a cot, a foot locker, a table that hooked to the wall, a personal computer and his own omni-tool. He enjoyed the quiet, open, emptiness of the cargo bay. It made him feel less like he was stuck in a spaceship and more like he was back in New York Zero when he was the only living thing for miles, save for a hunter or two.
The peace and quiet did not last, however, becaus

I hear everything too loudly
I am falling apart
I grew up too fast
I am still a child
I cannot stand still
I see every detail
I cannot remember what I'm doing
I talk about dinosaurs and doctors and darkrooms
I cry for no reason
I do not have the ability to cry now
I see the world differently
I wish you saw it like me
I have a puzzle to put together
I wonder if you'll help me
I hear a song and must sing it
I see a picture and must take it
I see a world, a broken world
I want to fix that, too
I want to play
I need to work
I close my eyes and fall asleep
I remember everything
I forget my head
I stand in blue light
I see the world in shades of blue
I am lost
I have been waiting for you
I am the empty child
Are you my mommy?

"I'm respecting your privacy by knocking, but asserting my authority as your boyfriend by coming in anyway!"
Cue Alfred storming into your room with a battering ram.

You knitted your brows. How many more things was he going to destroy in your house? Seriously, your car, your table, your printer what more was he planning to destroy? Your computer?! A malicious glare appeared on your face. No way was he destroying your precious!

Giganotosaurus was hopping around
South Patagonia like a big playground
When Spinosaurus charged with his jaws open wide
and took a chunk from Giganoto's hide
Giganoto shot a roar that blew all the mikes
But didn't expect that ol' set of spikes
that belonged to Stegosaurus's mighty tail
When Utahraptor, a blur of feathers and scales,
started mauling the shit out of Stegosaurus
when they both got chomped by the Spinosaurus
But before he could take his kill back to his shade
Dilophosaurus popped out from his glade
And threw his venomous spittle and then just like that,
he nailed Spino's eyes with a rat-a-tat-tat
But he ran out of loogies and he ran away
Because Argentinosaurus came to save the day
This is The Dinosaur Showdown of Dinosaur Destiny

THE COLD AIR in Baron Rorke's study did little to calm his nerves. He was expecting visitors this night and they were not the best of company. A shiver of dread ran down his spine and he spent most of the twilight hours staring out of a large window which stood behind his writing desk. It was amazing, he felt, how quickly a man could become attached to a life of luxury; only to be made painfully aware of how easy it was to lose it. War was always a frightening thing, even more so when one had the knowledge and sense to realise that it was no longer an exercise of glory, but a simple festival of bloodshed and cold murder. In war it did not matter if you impaled a stranger on the edge of your sword, such a thing would be punishable in any city or country, but in times of war it became an accepted norm. If the man in front of you wore a different colour, then it was alright to kill him, it was alright to rip him apart fo

In the religious capital of the continent, all was pleasant and all was quiet...until a bloodcurdling shriek rang through the air. The source of that was a young woman who had just turned a corner and beheld a gruesome sight. A barely-human-resembling..."thing" was the only word she could use to describe it, was burying its face into the stomach of a now-dead child, feasting on its bowels.
The creature looked up with a snarl, revealing inhuman, yellow eyes, a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth, and a face that she was just barely able to recognize. Her husband...he was the Yoma that plagued the town these last few days.
The Yoma advanced, the woman both too scared and too shocked to move. She tried to find strength, yet all she could do was fall to her knees, petrified with despair and terro

We pretend to have interviewed some eminent minds in order to answer this question.
If the Dunmer walks five miles in one hour it will take him precisely two seconds and a third of a second to cross the road.
The road is one-way only and I await at the end of it.
Hmm, I like nasty Dunmers...
We all have to cross the road to open our mind to more knowledge but shall not step away from the path of wisdom.
The Dunmer goes where the wind blows and no road will tell him where to walk.
He must be looking for some fertile grounds to plant some seeds...
Luck may be found at every crossroad... or not!
Surely this is one more questing Dunmer adventurer, may his courage be rewarding.
Roads were made to be followed or crossed, the Dunmer deals the road his own way.
Wondrous plains of green grass, and may the moths pass.

Groaning, you flipped through the channels on your television. There had to be something on. Sighing, you decided to go with some random movie you found. It said it was a 'psycho drama' so you assumed it had to be either entertaining or interesting. Pushing yourself off the couch, you walked into the kitchen to make some popcorn.
You found yourself covering your eyes, wincing, and nearly vomiting up your popcorn throughout the whole movie. Psycho drama? It was just gory death, gory death, slightly less gory death, screams, fighting, blood, and terror. Isn't that more of a horror movie?
Sighing in relief as the movie ended, you took your bowl that had once contained popcorn into the kitchen. Flopping back on the couch, you looked up at the ceiling aimlessly. Now you needed to find something to entertain you again. You probably wouldn't sleep tonight, you had the movie to thank for that, so you needed something that would keep you entertained for awhile.

Chicken Banana TheoryChicken Banana Theory9 years ago in Humor More Like This
Chicken Banana Theory
A man walks down the street and encounters another man. This other man believes he is a chicken, and promptly approaches the first man to inform him of this amid a series of chicken-noises. The first man acknowledges this, and hurries past.
Later, the first man is walking back along this same path and encounters the same man, though this time, the other man no longer believes that he is a chicken, but rather a banana.
This is an illogical transition– one cannot logically explain it by tracking the events that led to this mental transfiguration from chicken to banana. You cannot, for example, say that the man woke up thinking he was a chicken, had coffee, went to work, stood by the copier, and suddenly decided at that moment to become a banana. It does not follow any course of logic– it is the realm of insanity.
Consider then the deeper reasons for transition from chicken to banana. Did the man first believe he was a chicken to fulfill some need, then change his st

He growled as the first few drops plopped onto his scaly head, signaling the real storm was not too far away. His shredded clothing wasn't going to keep him safe from the elements much longer; he required a new set if he wished to face the approaching storm.

Far under the fiery mountain bold
To dungeons deep, and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the heart of our god
Dwarves of Resdayn made migthy spells,
Blade and hammer ringing like bells,
In places deep, where the dead sleep,
In the darkness of sixteen hells.
For peace with the Chimeri lords,
They gave two gleaming golden hoards,
They smithed with sound, and souls they bound
To wed lovers wielding twin swords.
But when the dwarves found a new faith,
They laughed in the Moon-and-Star's face.
With brass and songs in twisted tongues,
Built a golem and their own death.
Far under the fiery mountain bold
To dungeons deep, and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To claim our long-regretted god.
Then came the Devil of Dagoth
He spoke and said "Hear news I brought,
That in the dark, glimmers a spark,
By Dwemer hands, soon to be caught."
