Re: New Zealand woman sells ghosts to highest bidder

There have been some memorable sells on eBay since the website first launched. A kid once sold his virginity on eBay, and someone else sold their soul.

Re: Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland"

It was good. the 3D was managed very tastefully. I only had a few issues with the movie. The Doormouse, changing from woods, to teaparty, to castle seemed confusing. According to Wikipedia, this was the same character, and not The Mouse, but this wasn't very coherent in the movie. Secondly, the Knav...

Re: Chemicals that provide an immediate strength boost.

Hmm, so let me see if I got all the relevant information. This character has a power that gives him great strength, while allowing him to function normally, as in turn this power has also caused his muscles to atrophy... correct? Part of this "power" results in him giving pain to anyone wh...

Re: Is fantasy easier to write than science fiction?

I think fantasy is much, much easier to write than science fiction. People expect a certain level of truth with the science portion of science fiction, while in fantasy nothing has to be proven to still make sense. Dragons can persist in fantasy, but the author does not have to explain them. Warp dr...

Re: Need help with writing a part...

Many writers end the scene, begin writing a new scene elsewhere, end that new scene, and return to the previous scene with the characters already reaching their destination. One way to remove the need to write transition, while also presenting to the reader additional story progression elsewhere in ...

Re: Good day,bad day...

Well, in the "Justice is harsh" category... A bit less than a year ago, I signed the bond of an acquaintance who skipped out on his court date, putting me on the hook for the 11,500.00 bond. Today, I got word that he had been killed in a car wreck on the evening of the 26th. The thing is,...

Re: *Knock knock*

I still occasionally visit the old forums. Some really, really good threads about magic, types of magic, creation of magic, mechanics of magic, etc. were started and debated upon. Good reason, good references.

Good to see that, you too, are still around Neurolanis.
