5:40am: Answer for question 4499.
How much of a "planner" are you? Do you like to have everything mapped out in detail in advance, or do you just wing it most of the time? Tell us about a time you had something all planned out but it ended up going completely off the rails.
Sorry, no time.

I have an hour free the second week in November if you want.

Saying you hate Christians is like saying you hate plants. (Here I refer not to the disturbing similarity some Christians actually have to plants, but to how very many different franchises there are.)

The "diverse" kinds of Moslem, on the other hand, are as different as the various forms of tapeworm: the only difference it makes to anybody but another tapeworm is when and how they kill you.

According to the most recent report from Amazon, my best bet is to attract Kindle customers in India.

Perhaps there is some way to notify them that one of my other works included a nanobot that caused bullies to suffer terminal craniovascular events.

Terrorists and those who support them, for instance.

One day recently I awoke with the sudden realization that the dirtiest advertising slogan in history is "Taste the Rainbow."

This is by no means to be taken as a criticism.

Except insofar as Skittles contain corn syrup and may kill you with compulsive eating or kidney stones.

My idea for a true superhero is someone who crumples the private automobiles of primary-school teachers into compact wads, then attaches a note that says:

8:39am: Answer for question 4496.
What is your favorite word? Why is it so significant to you? How often do you use it?

It's kind of hard to explain.

and Rashful.

I do not have a story for this. Feel free to use it.

Now it's your problem.

As Valerie was taking her socks off at the end of another long day, they resisted, and I suddenly thought of something (which I did not tell her until they were off):

What if socks are members of an alien race that sends us its perverts? Not all of them, just the ones who have a terrible need to have something huge inserted into their entire bodies.

It occurs to me that the guy who invented the mammography machine may have seen or heard one too many examples of specious sophistry about how a condom will easily fit over a cucumber*.

It's revenge.

(*Which of course has no circulation to cut off nor pubic hair to rip out.)

I herewith propose the adoption of a Constitutional Amendment requiring all uses of the word "Agency" by government offices to be replaced with the word "Racket".

The National Security Racket would be given much less leeway. (Still too much, but... baby steps.)

The National Air and Space Racket would have to come up with something besides television programs to show for its budget.

The Transportation Safety Racket would have to account to the FBI for why all the billions of dollars it spends harassing citizens and conducting searches without any warrants have failed to catch one terrorist.

Mind you, the Environmental Protection Racket would, in all likelihood, be utterly unaffected.

It's not like they've ever made any bones about it.

It has struck me that the outfits worn by castle staff in England are not merely outdated, but actually the formal wear of an entirely previous dynasty.

This is as if servants at the court of Henry VIII wore nothing but woad.

(Of course, Henry would probably have gone along with that.)

Ultimate Washington Post headline:

Another realization about House:

Who is the neighbor of Dennis the Menace?

Given that the Democrats are doing anything they can think of to support and defend the Islamic slave trade and reboot of the Shoah, I gather that "right-wing" means whatever our current National crop of Socialists wants to belittle at a given moment.

I get why people don't like being called "cis". It means "not yet". People have every reason to be terrified of being relegated to a status equated with children.

I don't find it offensive to be called "cis", though as a writer I do find it kind of annoying; I think "iso" is a more accurate word, and it carries less baggage for trans and iso alike.

A friend of mine here has recently been bitterly disappointed once again.

Some people are forced to go through life with a heart that's half empty.

Between the serial rapists and the defenders of the "religious freedoms" of Moslems, I have to say that, over the last 39 years, it has been thoroughly established that women who vote for Democrats are like fetuses who vote for abortion.

6:54am: Answer for question 4489.
Do you ever have problems sleeping? What do you do in order to fall back to sleep? What sleep aid products do you find most helpful, if any?
I'm posting this at eight minutes to midnight, and I hate you.

Anybody who asks if you "have trouble sleeping" gets enough sleep to consider the issue unusual.

When I was a kid, Smokey the Bear used to say, "Only you can prevent forest fires."

Every time I hear of one I'm racked with guilt.

(How did he know?)

"Did anyone come by when I was asleep, dear?"

"A lady said she was collecting for the Mothers of the Republic, but I made her go away."

"How did you get someone obsessed with increasing the population of the City to go away?"

"I told her you were tired and that my name was Vigintimus. She gave me a sestertius for you, here."

"...Keep it. You're a good son, Gaius."

6:15am: Answer for question 4487.
Which song do you hate the most (whether new or old), and wish you never had to hear again? Why do you despise it so much?
Hmm, I think I'll try to remember every piece of garbage I was ever earwormed by. Oh wait, I'm not an idiot.

Whatever hellspawn thought this one up should have a full-body wax.

"So what other benefits does the Precision Killers' Union have?"

"Reliable supplies, regular proficiency testing and training, half price for any job one of us wants done, and two insurance policies."

"Why not one big one?"

"They're not the same. The first is that if you die on the job, the underwriter pays the beneficiary with no questions asked. The second is that the rest of us immediately drop everything and go after the sonofabitch who did it."

"The benefits in the Precision Killers' Union are pretty good. Full medical coverage, and we have doctors who actually listen, and don't jump to conclusions and interrupt with a hasty diagnosis."

"That's a neat trick."

"Not when you consider they all know you can kill a man with your thumb."


16th August 2015

12:01am: What? 778
"You the who what now?"

"I'm inviting you to join the Precision Killers' Union."

"You mean an Assassins' Guild?"

"Actually it's one of our bylaws that we're not changing the name to that unless a member can prove that he or she is, in fact, an elf."

Q: Assuming there's a God and a Heaven, and that you go to Heaven when you die and meet God, what would you want God to say to you?

A: "Who are you?"
