Re: Clerk; The Zombie Killer

I am happy to see this story rolling again. The characters seem to have a lot of potential.

Re: How do you kill an ear infection...in the PAW?

I was talking about this subject with my father, and he endorses the 'onion juice' remedy described by Turbolax. He tried it, and it worked quickly and effectively. In his version of the remedy, the juice was heated to body temperature before pouring it in his ear. (This post sounds horribly anecdot...

Re: Does anyone believe in this New World Order?

Oh yes, the Pentaverate . The Queen, the Vatican, the Ghetty's, the Rothchilds, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits-up. Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Re: Attempted break in at my place. Help me beef up security!

I have a Mossberg 500 Persuader, and I like it. It has a seven round magazine, handles 2 3/4" and 3" rounds, puts holes in the things I point it at, and makes me feel giggly when I pump it. I bought mine new for about $300, and it seems to be good quality. I am not super-tacticool, but, to me, it is...

Re: Chainsaws!!!

I recently bought a Stihl 064AV, it is an 1988 commercial model (85cc), but I have only tested it on one tree. The tree fell down before I could get any load on the engine :twisted: , so I will have to give a better review when there is less snow and I can drop more trees. However, most of my cuttin...

Re: What should I do about "abandoned" motorcycle?

You could even try calling the bank and bitching about the state that the place is in and claim that it is ruining your resale value.

Okay. Now I definitely get the slot machine part and appreciate it much more.

Sorry, but his death just seems like ...

Thanks MJS8725. I get such a kick out the way he talks. I don't know how many people watch TPB, so I wondered if anyone would recognize him, or if everyone would just think that it was a picture of me.

Re: Elevator

Thanks for the feedback. I added extra carriage returns like you suggested and it does look a lot better. I do have a question for anyone who reads the story: is the main character's attitude towards his elevator-mate too bitter/acidic (as in making him sound like a misogynist)?

I like it. The photography concept is cool enough on its own. The use of HDR just makes it that much cooler. I would like to see more abandoned industrial-type imagery and some rural action too.
