My Bio
Remember: Just because you say something, doesn't make it true.

If you think I'm being mean, chances are I'm not...it just seems that way.

I'm a libertarian, atheist and skeptic, and I was not offended by Feeling Pinkie Keen.

I'm biased against emoticons because any said emotion can easily be described with words. Anything else is lazy.

One thing I don't like about "ask" blogs. They tend to be simply a request blog. Questions are leading and are basically just things the asker wants to see. The hardest part of any joke is the set-up and having the audience provide it (in my mind) makes you lazy, or an improv performer.


Also, stop thanking me for adding something to my favourites. It's getting annoying, and you're flooding the comment page!

Once again, I must put out a call for editors.  Particularly this week, I'm gonna need some real a-holes to look for any and all errors in my work. The reason I'm putting out this call once again, is that so far, I've failed to find any usable assistance.  A problem which I detailed here. I'm asking anyone out there who's able, to contact me with an offer to act as editor.  I'm looking for real feedback here, not just confirmation that my work is fine.  Detailed nitpicking, if you can.  Anything else is useless to me. I'd be very grateful for your assistance.

Everyone's got their knickers in a twist over the latest news regarding my favourite not-cancelled TV show, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The news that Twilight Sparkle is going to grow wings and become a Princess during the season finale. What's odd is that my particular perspective on this seems to be unique in the pony-fan community.  I was not expecting that. http://theblackwidower.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/royal-pains/ Any thoughts? Please comment on the blog and not here.

As everyone is already well aware, a little over two weeks ago, I had a very serious hand injury caused by some broken glass.  I got eight stitches and a severed nerve that needed to be reattached.  A tall order to say the least. My surgery was booked for Friday, which is where we shall begin this latest tale. I arrived at the hospital at noon, having fasted since midnight the night before.  Since I had time to kill, I decided to pay attention to my fellow patients.  One of whom caught my eye.  He was wearing an orange jumpsuit, and was accompanied by two police officers.  Obviously a prisoner currently serving time. In the waiting room we

Happy Birthday! Birthday cake  icon 

Hey, you didn't send me a birthday message this year. LOL.


Anyway, thank you for all those messages you sent. You probably do it to everyone without thinking. But still, I appreciate it.

I didn't think you were even still around! Last time I looked at my following list it didn't show me how long you'd been gone for, and I generally assume people have just kinda left. And given that your 'newest' deviation was six years ago... 
Well, happy belated! ^^;
