Walking Walking Walking-
WATCH WHERE YOU’RE GOING!
Oh yeah you’re in the middle of the street,
on the way to Nick&Todd’s Coffee shop.
Note to self-
Look both ways when crossing the street.
You pull to open the door dumb ass.
Note to self-
Pull and Forget.
Clip Clop Clip Clop.
You sit down in the corner of the run down cafe,
ordering your regular rainbows-are-falling-sprinkled doughnut with Canadian-Made-Maple flavored latte,
muttering a grouph thanks to the old lady who must have survived the meteorite from thousands of years ago..
Note to self-
Ask for less sprinkles next time.
You look up finding some tall chocolate haired guy sitting at your table,
staring at you with the rabbits playful grin.
“it’s been like what- 10 years?”
“Let’s go stargaze bro, we can make up while we watch.”
How to Change Someone's OpinionI've heard a couple of philosophies where it's impossible to change someone else's opinion on something. The best you can hope to do is give people more knowledge, or a new way at looking things, or help people who are undecided on an issue. I can attest, that yes, changing someone else's opinion can be a very difficult thing. But it's not impossible. Why is it so hard? Because when someone's opinion changes, they admit implicitly that they were once wrong, whether it's about the latest movie or some political movement or religion. And being "in the wrong" can lead to once innocuous things being seen as mistakes. Those mistakes, depending on the issue, can have human consequences.More Like This
I want you to meet Bob. Bob hates fuzzy dice. He wants fuzzy dice to be illegal. I want Bob to be more accepting of fuzzy dice.
Step 1: See Where Bob is coming from
This is probably the most important step in changing someone's opinion. You need to see the other side of the issue, and if fail to
Writing Tips: Satire, You're Doing It WrongLet's be totally honest here. I think we can all agree that satire is one of the most misused and wrongly-attributed genre of anything ever. Why is this? Because stupid people use the banner of "satire" as a shield when they get called out for being a dick and mindlessly insulting people, philosophies, or events. That's not satire. Blindly causing controversy for the sake of it is not satire. Parody is not satire, although they are closely related. Satire is parody with a point. And if that point is just to insult someone/something, that's not satire. That's more akin to tabloid journalism, which is generally frowned upon by people mature enough to have moved on from shitting in their pants.More Like This
We're going to be talking about satirizing philosophies/attitudes and we're going to be talking about satirizing people. It's very different on how you do each, and that is one of the many, many misconceptions about satire. For one—satire is closer to criticism than it is to trolling. Satire
Dragonball Xenoverse chapter 1The time patrol…More Like This
They exist between two ticks of the clock, ever watchful over the ever-expanding tree of time and all its branches. They are the keepers of the order of time, keeping sure that every timeline flows as it should. As important a job it was, it was mostly peaceful, as the time patrol were one of the only keepers of the secrets of time travel. But a dark, foreboding feeling has overwhelmed the supreme kai of time, thus the order has been sent to find and recruit more capable patrolmen.
And this, is where the story truly begins…
Shenron’s eyes flared red, and a bright yellow light erupted in front of Trunks. The mirai saiyan watched as the light grew and grew, to the point where he had to shield his eyes. Finally, the light dissipated, and Shenron bid Trunks farewell. Trunks looked up to see whom Shenron had summoned. Standing in the spot where the light once shined was a Freezan, light blue and dark green in color, with a black and yellow suit of armor an
Predicting the FutureYou know what it's fun for everyone to do? Try and predict the future. For some reason everyone likes to predict mass apocalypse, whether it's the Y2k Bug that was going to destroy us all in the year 2000, or the Mayan Calendar that was going to destroy us all in the year 2012, or the Earth being engulfed by the sun in billions of years. That last one will probably happen, it's just that I don't predict it killing the human race because that would assume that human beings would know about a problem for billions of years, never develop technology, and never attempt to deal with that problem. I'm not going to try to predict the apocalypse. I'm going to try to predict problems that we may face in the next 10-50 years, problems which are going to take some thought process to get around or solve. I may be totally wrong, but the future is always a fun thing to predict. I mean, hoverboards are supposed to be invented this month.More Like This
