  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    Speaking of the Mandela Effect. I like the Moon blowing up at 2:19. THE MANDELA EFFECT Trailer (2019) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfYw6hSTgE0 I collect images and movies with the shattered Moon like that. This one is from the Moon's viewpoint of a shattered...

    LAvery @61 said: Here's the Cohen indictment. Wow! That is scary. Truth is stranger than fiction. HA! That does help with the Rudy section. I knew that it should be transcript style rather than normal prose. Thanks... BTW, the business...

    Yes! That drives me nuts. I had the answer, but couldn't google the right question. Thanks......
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    I'm having trouble with the Rudy part of the story. I can remember when they released some of the indictments about Trump, but they wouldn't name the people under consideration. The would label them with person one, person two, etc..,...

  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    That's annoying. As soon as I posted the question, and shut down for bed, I realized that the books were not missing "pronouns" they were without the verb "to be". Once I understood that, google provided answers. (Ask the right...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I am going nuts trying to remember a series? of SF novels -- at least two books -- that did not use pronouns. I've googled but found nothing. The search keeps coming up with the current trend of not using...

    David L @56 A friend at work has no middle name, so she always puts an X in the blank. That satisfies most systems and is accurate since "X" is usually used to mark a form. My brother and I...

    The series name will probably stay, The Laundry Files, since they occur in the LaundryVerse. After a time, there will be more novels without Bob than with. That's because we want to read stories set in the LaundryVerse, Bob is...

    _Moz_ @1125 Ken Burns did an episode discussing the Shakers. Sister Mildred Barker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euPJzOjffps They sought perfection in all aspects of their life. They basically invented industrial farming in America. We would not have developed the vast power of farming...

    Thanks for all the links and comments about "soul". I've been generating notes the past couple of weeks after I realized that the movie, What Dreams May Come, is actually Horror. That fits perfectly with Frank's comment: Of course, I...

    Greg, thanks for the links. We'll know in a few years if they install the first system. Once it's up and running, and covered on The Nightly Business Report, I will lose interest. Once a technology is established, I move...

    That is a good example of how useful this stuff is for Story. I could never make this stuff up on my own. "There was that kind of negative spin"? See what you did there. You pulled part of a...

    Thanks, the wiki is a good start. I was not aware that there was that kind of negative spin being generated. That comes in handy for Story. As I've said above I have "mad Google skills" but unless I'm in...

    BTW, try growing onions and garlic mixed in among all your plants. The big bulb onions, I forget the variety. The flowers that come up from the onion especially seem to control the aphids. My mom would plant them everywhere,...

    I googled "peeling a pumpkin" and now understand. HA! Never knew that was possible. For decades I would roast, then scoop everything out. So pumpkin has always been mashed, never solid enough for chips, etc... That's why I usually keep...
