Re: Happy Walspurgisnacht 2024

May the Fourth be with you!

And tomorrow is "Revenge of the Fifth" and Cinco de mayo.

I don't really observe those holidays, but I respect why some people would.

Next month I consider to be "Sonic month" since Sonic first debuted in June back in 1991. June 23rd is Sonic day. :D

Re: Catching up

Perhaps some mysterious energy is attached to it. Or perhaps a ghostly specter tied with the writing! Maybe it's the ghost of the author himself, or some other connected entity.

Or it could just be a coincidence but that's no fun. :lol:

Re: Gardening

I found that I really like Arby's crispy chicken sandwiches. Made with lettuce and tomato like they should be, and not pickles. Yuck! Don't get me wrong, I like pickles. Just not on fried chicken. :lol: I don't know, there's nothing like McDonald's fries to me, their chicken nuggets, their McDoubles...

Re: Catching up

Oh no worries you guys, I'm not offended in the slightest about anything said here. :) I make exceptions for defending yourself, your loved ones, your household, your family and even your pets, etc. If our country was being attacked, you bet I'm going to defend my loved ones to the best of my abilit...

Re: Civic rules about Trick or Treating

Just happened to notice this thread and thought I'd give my two cents. You'd think Friday or Saturday night would actually be the ideal nights to go trick or treating on. Think about it, you trick or treat at night and then you don't have to worry about getting up early the next day. Well, at least ...

Re: Catching up

Honestly, it's sad of me to think that so many innovations come about because of the loss of human life. But the truth is still the truth, even if it's not a pleasant truth. If only more innovations came about for the betterment of humankind, and perhaps by extension, all life on Earth as well. But ...

Re: Gardening

One of the nice thing about potatoes is how much you can do with them. Admittedly one of my favorite incarnations of potatoes is none other than the french fry. I especially love McDonald's fries. :lol: I also enjoy a good chili cheese fry. Anyone getting hungry? :lol: I really wish the good tasting...

Re: Catching up

I wouldn't say I'm a fan of socialism either. I've come to see "utopia" as simply a perfect world. But most stories about alleged utopias typically involve a problem hidden from society's view in some way. The Giver comes to mind. The existential problem in The Giver is that when people ou...

I've never thought of the "poor man's copyright." If all else fails, maybe I'll try that.

Close, I was thinking Veteran's Day.

But I think "talk like a pirate day" is a fun holiday too.

I wonder if any one celebrates Star Wars Day? May the 4th be with you.

Re: Promoting my book: Sky Kingdom

Right now I think I'd rather just make it a novelization than a comic at this point. But depending on the success of the story, I might consider a comic adaptation. Drawing out panels and putting in word bubbles (which the word bubbles part I'm just not that great at. I might need the right programs...

Re: Catching up

If war is so commonplace and a necessary to keep society afloat, then what of peace? Why doesn't society value peace more? I suppose the obvious answer is money. War generates profit, but at what expense? It seems money is more valuable than human life. Sad but true. I feel like a good utopian socie...

Re: Gardening

Yeah I agree on the sour cream thing. It's much better on a regular ol' potato than a sweet potato or a yam. I'd rather have butter, maybe some brown sugar on it since it lends itself to a sweet taste. Regular potatoes are more savory. My step dad was a big fan of yukon gold potatoes. They're kind o...

Re: Catching up

Good genes and large families make for great histories. Definitely agree there. I enjoy learning about family histories. :) Well, as I've said, my maternal grandfather was born in 1875, and that's pretty mind-blowing for me, too, even though I know I'm older than you. But in the South, we still thi...
