Would his being a "believer" disqualify him from performing surgery on you? No gotcha intended, just curious.

Ben Carson isn't touching me. "I saw the face of Jesus in his organs, so I sliced. Jesus told me to slice. And it didn't matter that John died since I blessed him as he departed on his way to heaven."

Nope he isn't touching me haha.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious : defined as follows-- super- "above", cali- "beauty", fragilistic- "delicate", expiali- "to atone", and -docious "educable", with the sum of these parts signifying roughly "Atoning for educability through delicate beauty." According to the film, it is defined as "something to say when you have nothing to say".

I'm sure this has been posted before, but hey it's a great word.

I agree, but he lost me when he pushed Zoe in front of that train crybaby

I know.....Zoe was amazing. I loved Zoe. I can understand your sentiments since Zoe was such an amazing young woman and well Claire is just a sexless bitch. But actually since when did killing people disqualify you from being President? I mean it seems good training for drone strikes on wedding parties, etc? And at least Frank had the guts to do it him self. Bush and Cheney got deferments and let other guys die in their place. Frank could have slipped and fallen in front of the train him self. Or Zoe could have swerved and and then pushed him into the train. Frank is still my guy. But damn I do miss Zoe. I would marry Zoe I think.

Yes let's play something sad for Zoe Boo hoo! Boo hoo!

I'm still going with Frank Underwood. A democrat with balls (i.e. who isn't Hillary?) and a guy who will take bold action. Oh and he could win the Nobel Peace Prize for a genuine reason when he moves in troops and creates the two state solution. Yup it's Frank for me. What? Who said he's a fictional character? What are you talking about? I mean I saw him on TV just last night.

Topic The WORST movie you ever saw
Posted 20 Sep 2015 10:14

Haha well all the beret wearing pseudo intellectuals can now attack me.

"My Dinner With Andre", the supposedly captivating and philosophical work by Louis Malle, was boring and full of pretentious bullshit from beginning to end. Roger Ebert loved this stupid film. The "Family Guy" parodied the film in a lovely way in the episode "My Dinner with Andre the Giant".

Can any of us truly be happy? Okay let's sit in a chair and fucking talk about it in a very pretentious manner and film it for 3 hours. WTF? Really? And I can't say anything? I just have to listen to your fucked up ramblings? No thanks.

Happiness is an entirely personal experience. This movie was empty of plot, direction and had no emotional arc to it. It was like very bad reality TV before the idea of really bad reality TV had even become a lightbulb moment for anyone in the media industry.

My vote goes to "My Dinner With Andre".

Topic Seriously, The B**** Ain't Loyal!

Well "Muse" is a funny thing and most probably particular to each person. I call her "Serendipity"? Many of my stories are just planned out and written from hard work. Maybe the story idea comes from an incident in real life, maybe from something I read that triggers a thought, and then I plan the story out and begin writing. This is NOT the muse.

Take the history competition as a recent example. I had almost finished my story to enter into the competition. It was a historical piece about the Nanban period circa 1800 Japan. No "MUSE" whatsoever was involved in this story. Just hard work. I was almost done. The story was almost finished. And then, out of nowhere, a new story idea came to me about the Cold War. This was Serendipity at work. My new story "Eighteen Hours of Rain" almost wrote itself. I mean it just came to me from I have no idea where? That's what I consider my "muse".

But the muse didn't come to me because I was sitting around watching TV waiting for it. NO it came because I was hard at work on a story. My creative juices were flowing. My fingers were typing, and lines were being written. I firmly believe the muse likes hard workers. It's the same in business. The harder you work the "luckier" you get. Luck? The muse? Same thing. Work hard on your stories and the muse will find you. Don't worry, she's like Cupid, you can't fucking hide.

Well looks like I'm with Bernie, Hillary and Joe....93%, 91% and 89%.

Good luck to Bernie. The world could use a new face I think. Hillary I don't trust. She wants it too bad. She'd do a deal with the devil if she had to.

Jeb Bush, Ted and Ben got 3% with me haha. Well 3% is not nothing right?

I still want Frank Underwood haha.

Oh damn Fox News have found my fucking birth certificate. Yup Cape Breton....can't even fucking vote. Well there were very few black people in Sydney, Nova Scotia, so it's unlikely Fox News will accuse me of being "black", but you never know. The mud flies in an election year. Good luck Americans.

Topic Ideas for future competitions
Posted 05 Sep 2015 10:48

Product Placement: well since "product placement" and "guerrilla advertising" are so in vogue now, how about a competition theme where we writers are required to include certain products in the story in a creative way?

Topic Ideas for future competitions
Posted 05 Sep 2015 10:46

Good idea.

This latest competition was a particularly challenging one, and we've had far fewer entries than usual.

I think the last competition we had close to 100 entries (from memory), so we're getting good numbers entering usually.

It's a consideration for future competitions.

Well Gil is onto a good idea....but why random prizes? I think perhaps if a particular writer has "peppered the top 10" a few times, perhaps missed out on the BIG KAHUNA like every time....such a writer might get a case of 1982 Krug from Lush as a "thank you" giftEmbarassed Embarassed ? Okay maybe not a case....maybe half a case? Okay a single bottle? Okay how about a digital image of the fucking Champagne? Okay about a bottle of pepper?

I'm pretty sure you can write about historical figures in the historical category. Rachel and Steph are just being like cranky old men who tell you to turn your garshdanged music down!

Shit is that how you spell "garshdanged"? I always wondered. J.D. Salinger would be fucking proud. I'm sure Holden would have used that word if JD knew how to fucking spell it.

Topic Onto vs. on to
Posted 11 Jul 2015 07:02

Rule 1: In general, use onto as one word to mean “on top of,” “to a position on,” “upon.”

He climbed onto the roof.
Let’s step onto the dance floor.

Rule 2: Use onto when you mean “fully aware of,” “informed about.”

I’m onto your scheme.
We canceled Julia’s surprise party when we realized she was onto our plan.

Rule 3: Use on to, two words, when on is part of the verb.

We canceled Julia’s surprise party when we realized she caught on to our plan. (caught on is a verb phrase)
I’m going to log on to the computer. (log on is a verb phrase)

Topic The Quality of Stories and Poems
Posted 26 May 2015 23:51

Well yes public taste is indeed a fickle thing. As for artistic judgment? Well who is qualified to ride that beast with any level of authority? I adore David Hockney....others write scathing reviews? Damien Hirst is built up into a cult by some influential monied collectors (who shall remain unnamed) and yet I find his work hollow and devoid of value although it sells for millions.

I find most of the "McSex stories" on Lush entirely uninteresting. Yet many of these stories with caricatures for characters get a ton of views and comments that sound like raving endorsements. What can I say? Art is not science.

I cannot tell you scientifically WHY Van Gogh is a genius. I just know that when I go to the National Gallery and stand in front of "Wheat Fields" it is just like an out-of-body experience. Can't articulate it. Can't explain it. Art sometimes acts like a form of "magic" capturing a moment, a time, the essence of something.

As a final point not all members on Lush are "scoring" for altruistic "artistic" reasons. My last comp entry garnered a "2" from some person? Really? Haha I claim no special insight into writing skill, but I do have enough discernment to know that on Lush this story is not a "2". Anyways interesting post. But like others have said, some of my favourite stories are not "popular" so I wouldn't want to see them gone.

Topic Tomorrowland
Posted 25 May 2015 22:30

The girl who played Athena (Raffey Cassidy) was a great actress. Difficult role for her. Like Hopkin's role in "Meet Joe Black" it required a subtle approach and I thought she was great. The movie itself was transparent crap. I have no idea how this shit gets a green light? All that money spent for absolutely zip. Anyways Clooney makes bad choices. Descendants was good, but Gravity was crap and this one is crap. So boring I wanted to leave, but I was with a group and had to stay.

I tend to support humans. Someone told me women are fuck I'm a feminist. I also know children are I'm a child advocate. Oh shit someone just slipped me a note. Gay people are (drum roll please) wow....human? Fuck really? I guess I'm for gay rights then. Wow who knew. Oh....crap....I'm getting a signal from my people are what? No way. Really? Human? Shit okay so I'm for racial equality. Asian women are hot. So YUP I'm totally in support of Asian people.....especially the hot female kind. What....just wait.....crap another note.....what OLD PEOPLE are human? (John turns to confirm if this is actually true? Can it be true? Old people?) Okay I guess John is against discrimination against old people and thinks there should be health care and pensions.

Damn now do I come across as fucking George Clooney or what?

Topic Should kids in the untied states have to say the pledge of alligence in school
Posted 19 May 2015 21:51

They should not be required to say the pledge, and they are not, legally. They may opt out. I suggest they do. But it is free speech. Mouth the words if you wish. Just do not reprimand those who would rather not make a pagan pledge to an inanimate object.

"Pagan pledge to an inanimate object" a whoosh 3-pointer from mid-court. No net. Damn one of those phrases I wish I had saidEmbarassed . John....a jealous author....admires Green Man's amazing phraseology!!!!!!!!

As the USA supports Saudi Arabia (a brutal tribal kingdom) in Yemen (tribal war) and the wacko Zionists (tribal war) and destroys Iraq and Afghanistan (more tribal conflict)......a pagan rallying cry is a useful tool to gather the masses. Now repeat after me kiddies.....

Also NICE reference to the actual constitution and law. Well done Green Man.
