I thought you might like that one. At some point we relabeled healthy skepticism as paranoia. In doing so we did a disservice to all homo sapiens and their works.

Conclusion: Some people who play Oolite have lead rather racy lives.
Fortunately we all seem to have calmed down before it ended in a coffin or a clinic.

Who says anything has calmed down or ended? The trick is to not get involved with people afflicted by jealousy.. :wink:

(It has nothing to do with the conversation, I could just really do with a bacon sandwich right about now).

Envy? What? Me? No! Banged two hot chicks at the same time hundreds of times, me! Of course.

That's why I hang around all the time on a fan site dedicated to a fan remake of a computer game that had massive geek cred back when I was 25.

LOL! I thought that in my stories, sex WAS the action scene! };] But see, you guys should speak up and say when too much is too much.

From what I've read of your work so far, I'd say your character's find it on a regular basis :wink:

Sounds deep at first, but the more I ponder it, the less sense it makes. Does that mean that anything else that makes you happy is the key? Is pleasure then to be considered "sinful"? What else is on the list? What about chocolate? };] To me, it's just another very vague generalization that people would use to try and impress others.

I think the value in little one liners like that is that they be considered rather than taken literally. As you say, close, literal scrutiny often throws up exceptions or flaws. Did the writer consider chocolate? Was 'sin' implied? I don't know. What is meant by 'heaven' anyway? etc. etc.
It made me think, it made me consider and, in part, it helped crystalise some experiences I'd had.
Pleasure, happiness, what's the difference? We could be here all day, so a simple statement like the above gets us thinking to 'fill in the gaps'. Or something like that...

As for impressing others, I need all the help I can get :-P

Getting back to your writing, I haven't read much yet but I have enjoyed it. Thanks :-)

Well, it did provide a good 10 minutes worth of thought and diversion, so job well done. }:]

Sorry! }:[

Post by Paradox » Sat Oct 18, 2014 1:45 am

I just wanted to apologize for the lack of updates lately. I have been working a new job, while also working to get into yet another newer job at the same time. On top of that, I simply hit the burn out point. After writing fifty seven chapters non-stop, I just felt it was time for a break. However, I should have said something sooner, so I am sorry for that. I promise I will continue the story again soon.

Today was my first day on the new job, so once I get settled in, I hope to be able to start concentrating on the story again.

That's fine. Job first, fleshy wibbling second. Unless of course your job happens to involve fleshy wibbling in which case. Happy the person who is paid for their hobbies.

I was slightly concermed that you'd run dry. Your pencil had used up all its lead and the whole endevour had left you warn out and flacid. It's good to see you standing to full attention, once again, raring to get stuck in. Someones got to give this thread the right royal seeing too it's been begging for, and quite frankly I think your the only one with the stamina to get the job done. I wish you many happy and productive hours of bashing away vigourously........ at your keyboard.

Too much?
