Batman was on his usual night patrol. He made the roof top of a tall building as his operating point, from where he could have a clear view of the street, especially the museum, which, according to his sources, is the site of action for the night. He was alone. He insisted Robin to stay out of these chilly night patrols and concentrate on his studies. His grades were beginning to worry him. He had not faced such problem with Dick, he perfectly balanced between his studies and his work. Tim, on the other hand was so obsessed with his newly acquired Robin persona that he dreamt of flying the streets of Gotham all day. No wonder there was a protest from him to Bruce's decision, but the big man had the final word.
The night was colder than usual. Why could't Joker choose a better day to bother him? There was no reason why he should rob a museum, except to attract Batman's attention. "Crime is no fun withou

“A noiseless, patient spider,
I mark’d, where, on a little promontory, it stood, isolated;
Mark’d how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,
It launch’d forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;
Ever unreeling them—ever tirelessly speeding them.
And you, O my Soul, where you stand,
Surrounded, surrounded, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing,—seeking the spheres, to connect them;
Till the bridge you will need, be form’d—till the ductile anchor hold;
Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch somewhere, O my Soul.”
I smiled to myself as I read the beautiful poem by Walt Whitman. I simply loved poetry…I would write it myself, but then feel downcast when I read the work of an even better poet. I flipped through the pages to find another poem by Whitman while my other hand reached out for a pen and paper. I took a swig of my tea and sighed, leaning back against the wall of the l
Women of the Bible: EstherMany of you may already know about the story of Esther. But we need to look a little more deeper to find out what is really means, and what we as Christians can learn from it.Women of the Bible: Esther7 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
As most of us know, Esther was a Jew from the tribe of Benjamin. The name Esther in question means 'star'. This is a derivation of the root name of the goddess Ishtar. Esther was also known as Hadassah (her birth name for that matter) which means 'Myrtle'. Myrtle branches signify peace and thanksgiving. She first appears in Book of Esther Chapter 2. She is an orphaned Jew brought up by her cousin Mordecai. (Esther 2:5-7).
The book of Esther teaches much more than the life of one lady. In fact, there are five main characters in this story; King Xerxes (or otherwise known as King Ahasuerus), Queen Vashti, Mordecai, Esther and Haman. As you read the story in Esther chapters 1-10, make sure you understand the roles of these five characters.

The Illuminati: ExposedThe Illuminati: ExposedThe Illuminati: Exposed9 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
The Illuminati are suspected of having an influence on practically every part of our lives from politics to religion and economy, technology, and even major world events. The Illuminati are a secret society closely linked to Freemasonry. Founded on the first of May, 1776 with only five initial members, the group discussed and philosophized about things that were generally thought of as taboo at that time period in France. Among the things that they looked at were the teachings of Voltaire, an anti-Christian who questioned politics and current philosophies. Under the leadership of Adam Weishaupt, codenamed Spartacus, the order never made progress. After a few years, however, much more prominent members joined such as Baron Adolph Knigge, Duke Ferdinand of Brunswick, and Duke Ernest of Gotha. This gained the Illuminati much popularity. However, on June 22, 1784, the French government issued a decree banning all secret societies from o

The Bostonian already regretted not killing the supposedly cursed BLU Spy. Despite his out of character notion to NOT kill him, the little crab repaid the RED mercenary by talking non-stop throughout the night.
"I understand your insecurities about kissing a man, but at the moment I am not a man; I am a crab," he began. "Kissing a crab isn't as you so colorfully described it gay." Scout didn't respond. With his back turned to the aquarium, he tried to ignore the heavily-accented voice and focused on getting some sleep. "Then again, when you think about it...kissing a crab would be unethical, but you do have to agree, it's not gay, oui?"
"I'm tryin' to sleep!" Scout snapped.
"And I am trying to become human again," retorted the Spycrab, using the same tone the Scout used against him. "As long as I believe you are the only who can lift zhis curse, I will haunt you like a ghost. This I promise."

We entered this particular store, it was rather large. Popular music played all around, and as expected there were clothes everywhere. There were also plastic mannequins, three kinds. There were the mannequins with no heads, mannequins with faces painted on them, and a single mannequin without a face.

The BLU Scout didn't know how to react as the RED Scout explained to him everything the Spycrab had told him about his cursed. Although he left out a few details, like him being a virgin. Both of the Scouts sat down next to each other and leaned against the door as the BLU Scout tried to comprehend everything that happened. It was hard to believe, but then again, the intelligent crab he held in his hands was evident enough.
"So..." Began the BLU Scout as he held the crab close to him. "...The Spy was turned into a crab by the ghost of Zepheniah Mann at the Harvest?"
"That's what he said." The RED Scout nodded.
The BLU Scout looked at his RED counterpart. "But why? What did he do that was s-so-so wrong?"
"Well don't ask me!" The RED Scout snapped. "I don' know and nor does he! He just went over to Harvest one day to find a way a new way to f*ck me up on the field and then BAM!" The BLU Scout jumped slightly.

Once you turned the corner, a man with dark blue hair and a slightly lighter blue scarf ran up to you, causing you to stop walking. You assumed he was going to ask you for something, but instead he just shoved the ice cream cone he was holding in your face, it was the new flavor that you had seen advertised on t.v. the other day.

But Chimchar and its evolutions always got evaded. This time... I was using Chimchar.
