Rachel and her boyfriend, Firingwall, were sitting down on the couch, watching a little TV. She was resting her head on his right shoulder and leaning against him, happy as can be. He, on the other hand, was focusing more on the TV than her. She sighed contently and said, "Isn't it nice to have a day off?"
"Definitely," he said staring ahead, "Especially now that my summer class on Friday finally ended."
She frowned and inched closer, pressing her chest against his arm, "You know why don't we turn on Netflix and find ourselves a romantic movie? Something sweet."
"I am happy watching this," he said flatly.
'Ugh,' she thought, 'Of all the guys in America to be in love with, it had to be the guy who isn't affected with boobs are pressed against his arm.'
At that moment, the show they were watching cut to the commercials. The first commercial popped on and it showed an anthro horse cowgirl riding on top of a glass bottle of green juice
Halo 3 GuideConcerning SnipingHalo 3 Guide7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
In any case of sniping, the easiest way to actually snipe is to set the controller sensitivity down on default (3) and learn to aim explicitly for the head. When you aim for someones head, you want to see their head disappear behind the little pinpoint crosshair. For beginners, the easiest thing to aim for is a shoulder or the chest area. Either can kill a player and if youre lucky, youll get a headshot regardless. If you zoom out by accident, dont fear. Chances are, unless theres another sniper nearby from the other team, you have the chance to get the second shot. Repeat the process or go for a no scope if you havent jerked the sniper rifle from where you were aiming. You only have the chance for two shots on any good game before you might be sniped out of your hiding spot or before you have to move to a new one.
Dont panic, secondly, if you panic, youll start moving too fast for the sensitivity and youll

I loathe the undead.
They're always whining about "brains" and "guarrrgh" all the time and they're clawing at you with their nasty clammy maggoty-infested hands and biting your wife with their rotten yellow teeth and trudging along in a big stupid horde, losing their limbs all over the place and blocking traffic like they owned the world. Would you believe there was a zombie stampede on the I-41 this morning? Yeah, they held up traffic for like an hour. It was a huge stampede. They made me late to work and I think they almost cost me my job. Never mind that the boss has been later for less important reasons than a zombie stampede.
Some day I'm going to stick him in a room with a zombie in it and see how he likes it.
Anyway. I would have been later to work this morning ('cause I think that stampede's still going on, I mean they just said on the news half an hour ago that the last body count was like sixty, and that's way too many for just an hour-long stampede) if I hadn't gone and inst

The opening image depicts a city square fallen into decay and ruin, ravaged by the tides of nuclear war. In the midst of the city square, a man stands with his back to the camera, draped in a grey trench coat and an officer's cap on his skull. As the narrator speaks, the camera slowly zooms in on the back of his head.
Narrator: In the midst of a ruined city, forgotten by time, stands a lone figure. His real name is known to none but him, and even he may not remember it... To the men under his command, he is known simply as 'The Captain'.
The Captain turns, revealing the custom designed respirator and goggles on his face, and looks just above and behind the camera.

"Umbrellas up!" My mother said.
"The stars are coming down!
They're slipping from the heaven's sky
and landing on the ground."
"Watch your head, now, Rosie,"
My mother warned, alert.
"If one should tumble on your head,
I'd think that it will hurt."
"But mother," whined I to my mom,
"The stars should stay up there.
The angels will be stopping this
as soon as they're aware."
"Oh, Rosie," Mother sighed aloud.
"The angels want this done.
They stand behind each beam of light
and push them, one by one."
"What for?" I asked then, soft and sweet.
"I'm feeling so confused.
Do the angels want their friends on earth
to be black and blue and bruised?"
"Not you, Rosie," Mother said.
"You've done nothing wrong.
But evil deeds occur on earth
and most folks just go along.
"For everytime a child's hit,
or killed in bed at night;
Everytime you wrong someone
a star will lose its light."

We fix emotions like a crooked horse race.
We tinker with the past 'til it blinks out

We assure ourselves it's all for the best -

- A cautionary tale about Battenburg Cake - </i>
The grunting, straining taxi driver gave one last heave. Mr Travis Enderby shot from the back seat of the black Honda like the cork from a bottle of well-shaken Babycham. He landed splat on the pavement, his fall broken by the not-well-tipped-enough taxi driver. Nonetheless, the impact shook the privet three houses along and caused Travis Enderby's flesh to spread across the ground in ripples, like a large jellyfish poked with a stick. By the time the tremors in Mr Enderby's outlying regions had subsided the cab had roared away. It left behind a morbidly obese middle-aged man, an improbably small suitcase and a whiff of partially combusted diesel.

For those of you who have never been inside a vegetable, it's hard to tell. You must be feeling whatever I had written till now, is plain nonsense. Nonsense. Now, that could be a very misleading term. Nonsense is a genre in itself. A man called Lewis Carroll had played with it in "Alice in Wonderland". From this I'd like to draw the following conclusions:
1. Fools can't write nonsense.
2. Not all nonsense is true
3. Not all things true is good
4. Not everything that's good qualify as creative.
5. Therefore, fools may or may not be creative.
6. Fools may be creative
7. Fools can write nonsense.
Now I'd prove the virtue of nonsense by your reactions. You may have five reactions to this.
1. You are awestruck by the argument: Because the argument is nonsense itself, yo
