I am seriously at a huge loss for words. I am so appreciative of all the nice things y'all have said about me but really feel undeserving. You all are being too kind. I love being here and love knowing all of you.

There are so many great members here and that is a huge factor in being such a wonderful place. It is the great vision, dedication and hard work that Nicola put into this place that attracts all of you awesome people.

All I can really say is a lot of great big hugs all around.

I really look forward to seeing who all will receive this 'Awesome' Badge. There are already a lot of great candidates.

I dunno about scientist as president. We had Carter who had a nuclear background and as much as the man is one of the most incredible human beings we've had as president, I think he was too smart for the role of president.

A big part of why Carter's presidency was not as successful as it should've been was his dedication to honesty and decency. He did not want to play the 'I only help you if you help me' game. That clashes with the principles of Washington, D.C. Also, it is seriously disappointing that some in his own party fought his efforts and opposed him just out of jealousy that a Washington outsider came in and obstructed their goal of becoming president. The Democrats had to recover from that and finally came in strong again when they brought in another southern governor (Washington outsider) in Bill Clinton. Clinton had more political savvy than Carter, but both were so very similar in their political ideals and goals.

Right now, is another time for some new thinking and innovative new leadership to take hold within the Democrat Party. Whoever takes those reigns doesn't seem to have stepped forward yet in any strength, but it is times like these that develops such new leadership. Much of the old guard has outlasted their usefulness and need to step aside.

The Republicans were in need of new leadership and got it but it's quite possible that is taking an even more destructive path and could lead to their eventual downfall and having to start anew.

One great thing I can say about Jimmy Carter is that he never retired. Once he stepped onto the world stage as a leader, he stayed. Carter has been the most outstanding ex-US President, possibly ever. He has been involved in so many humanitarian causes, promoting civil rights and fighting bigotry, promoting democracy, free elections, working for the poor and the needy. He is an amazing man.

Compared to other nations in the world, in fact, compared to the modern techno-industrialized world, Sweden has a very low crime rate, a high per capita income, and a high education rate. As far as I can tell, Sweden is doing very well.

Making stuff simpler is an excellent goal, but may not always reflect the complexities of life/society. A lot of bureaucracy emerges as a response to dealing with all kinds of nuances. And because that's often done in a band aid style on top of existing legislation it get's nasty very quickly. I'm not sure if that's because there are too many attorneys in government, or because the issues are all interconnected and as a whole too big to change at once. So instead they put a band aid here, and one there, and another one on top of that again, etc.

You're right about the band-aid theory. And once too much 'band-aid' legislation is applied it, like having too many band-aids on, it becomes cumbersome and less effective.

I know we do need attorneys involved government and of course as elected officials but we are way too top heavy/saturated with them. But we cannot force people to run for office. For some reason politics attracts attorneys. And from personally knowing a few of them, really well, maybe too many politicians are attorneys who were not cutting it working as attorneys (in other words, many of the least talented and effective ones decide to run for office.) Hmm... or Ugh!

Topic Fart Rape
Posted 23 Feb 2017 10:26

My momma taught me not to fart out loud in public. And to get away from people if it was going to be an SBD (silent but deadly) Eewwww!

Actually, my mom especially taught me that farting in front of women was taboo, uncool, and ungentlemanly. I guess some might say that is sexist. But I'll take what my mom taught me on face value. She can hold her own with anyone and probably tear them apart. I don't argue with her.

In my fraternity days we would like have 'who could fart the loudest contests'. But that was an all-male group. What does that ridiculous study say about that? Hmmm...

I know a guy that can clear any room with a fart. Hell, he can clear a coliseum with a fart. You never hear them coming, but then your nose twitches and you convulse. It's horrible!

Gee, I do not see a good future for this thread. Farts in the Think Tank? Well...

While government should be run with much more fiscal responsibility than it is or has been in a seriously long time, it is not a business. Business experience is good in some respects but the mindset of running government should be different.

I think we have too many attorneys in government. Attorneys like to continually bombard the legislative forums with complex bills which only enhance job security for attorneys. Things should be made simpler and easier to understand. State governors and mayors of large cities would be good experience, especially if they have other leadership experience on their resume. One can judge by their track record, the quality of job they could bring to the office.

Certainly, a president filling out their cabinet should go with people who are very strong in the area they'd be leading in.

A president should be someone who knows how to appoint people that are the best and are strong where the president is weak.

People need to know though, that the Senate, Congress, and Supreme Court wield much power. Presidents often get blamed or credited with things and power that were really beyond their scope. They are not all powerful. And most economic downturns, but not all, are the result of problems and policies that probably started a long time before their administration.

I feel that co-written stories are inappropriate for these competitions unless it is a specific co-writers competition.

Proofing and light editing I like. Heavy editing should not be done for a comp story.

Topic Your favourite story title?
Posted 21 Feb 2017 19:45

There are lots of great story titles and I can't even remember all the ones that have impressed me.

But here are just a few titles I really like:

Hard Candy by Dancing Doll. It is the perfect Hardcore category title

Oh Christmas Goat, Oh Christmas Goat by Sprite. I love quirky off the wall and funny. Great title for a Humor story

Renaissance Of The Hear t by DanielleX. A 5 part series in the Love Story category. Perfectly named for that.

Time Assassin by JessicaX. Outstanding name for a Fantasy & Sci-Fi story

Cum Compulsion by Kee. Great name for a Fetish story

The titles of my own stories I like best:

Run! Dammit! Run!

The Devil’s Harem: She Played The Rusty Trombone

In The Land Of Salvation And Sin

I Love Your Funky Fucking Sloppy Snatch

I would vote for locking this thread since it no longer serves a useful purpose and has become a bane of negativity.

I won't, though. That would be up to the Forum mods. But it is my opinion.

I'd like to see everyone move on and try and take a more positive attitude toward things.

I'm going to make an attempt at a comp story, though at this late date I may not make it, especially with my excruciating proofing process. That I guarantee you, is harder than 90% of yours.

Rules are rules. It is what it is.

But if you all think no second proofer for you is difficult, imagine being very dyslexic. If I only depend upon myself, I'll have to do several read-throughs, including reading the entire story backward. That's just something I have to do.

Anyone who is dyslexic knows there is a misfire between what your eyes see as you type or what you read on a written page. While I 100% know the difference between your and you're - are or or, etc., I often don't actually see that difference. Proofing backward is the best way I catch things but it also takes a lot of extra time and effort.

I can do an adequate job of proofing someone else's text. I have my tricks to beat dyslexia but it takes me more time and effort than most of you. But once I've written or typed it and read my own work, that is much more difficult for me to see what I've done wrong.

I actually heavily proof my Forum posts before clicking post. And even then I often see mistakes when I later look at an older post.

Thank God for Grammarly.

Just do your best.

If this competition was a sprint or a bicycle race? I might kick everyone's ass on here. But despite having a disadvantage I have grown to love writing and it is well worth the effort.

Topic Thread locked for no apparent reason
Posted 20 Feb 2017 18:26

but we don't know that at all. we still don't know who closed it or why. sprite unlocked it cause she could not find the reason why. and for all we know, the person who locked it in the first place could come back and lock it again, or as sprite said (and yes I know it was in jest) she was just gonna randomly lock and unlock it.

I am happy it is unlocked. I still think the transparency was sadly lacking on this issue, and that lack led to a lot of unnecessary posting as well as rudeness on the part of some people that should know better. let's hope next time, any similar situation is handled better by those supposedly in charge.

If it was a glitch, Gav will figure it out. If it was an accident, the person who did it does not know they did it. Transparency?

We unlocked it as soon as we deduced that it wasn't locked on purpose. It is a minor problem that was addressed.

I hope in the future people will show some patience. The mods are member volunteers on duty as we are able.

And frankly, there are many more important issues that we deal with. A simple inquiry message to the Forum mods is all that is necessary if you see a thread has been locked. If it is something inadvertent then as soon as that is determined the thread will be unlocked. If it has been locked you will eventually get an explanation but do show patience as we are not a 24/7 tech help service.

In the meantime please show some lighthearted humor.
