Reintegrating Remnant Numbers
Reintegrating Remnant Numbers
Have you ever wondered about the fate of remnant numbers? Have you ever wondered what a remnant number actually was? Have you ever been lying awake at 2.30am pondering these types of inane questions?
Well, the answer is here!
(No Rs were harmed in the composition of that sentence.)
Remnant Number: (noun, idiotic) The discarded percentiles of a number that have been rounded up or down to a fixed amount of decimal places. eg: 47.39(19751617)
Often in the commercial, mercantile and fiscal world, remnant numbers are created and abandoned hundreds if not thousands of times every hour of every day. We know the banks capture and drain these remnants of thier value and life, but what about those that escape into the wild from the commercial and mercantile numeral holding pens?
We have the answer!
Recapture, reeducate and reintegrate into normal numerical society as confident integers.
How do we do this you a
:iconfelanyn:Felanyn 0 0
Denied our true environment enclosed in glass prisons as we
Measure off the distance of our tank that hides the sun.
Our keepers disobey the Laws of Nature as they feed us at a
Regular time each day on drugged, synthetic flakes.
Wild and free out there are the sweet insects we long to
Devour as they hover and tease above our native, bubbling water.
The tedium of long hours crawling past slower than the snails on our
Prison walls as we move and talk merely for the benefit of those watching.
Our golden tails and silken scales flash and gleam unnoticed and unloved
For the greater bulk of each day is spent posing needlessly to each other.
False, harsh sounds continually assault is from the fake aerator,
That plastic monstrosity called the cleansing, needful filter.
I have been asked to give you a question which I think is true:
Goldfish and humans, so alike the other, but we wonder,
Who is better off than whom?

Are You Afraid?
Are you afraid, little one, of what the Night might bring?
Of shadows and ghosts, and that to which Death clings?
Can you sleep, little one, without the bright light on?
Shut your eyes and desperately pray for dawn?
Did you know, little one, that sleep is Death in gentler guise?
Can you face the fact that in Death's arms you lie?
Are you aware, little one, of the horrors of the Dark?
Of crossing late at night a tree-sparse, unlit park?
Do you tremble, little one, about those ghosts and ghouls
Which condemn all brave men and make them shivering fools?
Can you sing, little one, a Requiem - mass for the dead?-
And not see the maggot-ridden corpses upon which the flies have fed?
Can you ignore, little one, the day of Wrath of God?
In which all flesh is frozen, all blood will stop and clot?
Are you scared, little one, and shut all wardrobe doors?
Hoping desperately that Hell won't rise through the floors?
Are you afraid, little one, of what the Dark can raise?
To torment you endlessly, and

OK, I'm trying *again* on this. I got discouraged last year & gave up. I feel better prepared now, and after veiwing *hundreds* of DA member's work, I'm getting a feel for how things should look. Hopefully this will translate down to my hands for drawing!
I'm calling this year: NaLeDraMo, or National Learn (to) Draw Month. And it's starting now, in October, since I am doing NaNoWriMo in November.
I'll be putting the best efforts up at least every couple of days, but be warned: as of 1st October 2008, *I cannot draw*.
