It’s been a long long time since I read the,.. was it a short story or a book,... I just remember Ice-9 as an ice substance that was stable at warm temperatures that turned all water into it’s self and everything containing water froze,..... funny I don't remember thinking about it as an allegory for hate and fear, but I guess it was.

I don't remember much either. It was an allegory for the post-nuclear world, but there was some way that ants survived as a colony but that killed individual ants...

Ice nine is from a Kurt Vonnegut book. I believe it was Cat's Cradle. Originally invented to keep marines from having to walk in the mud, it destroyed the world in the end.

Good morning.

So, what is it about me that makes some people want to punch me? It happened out on the playa this year when I put on my bunny suit. Weird.

Coffee time.

What a great expression. I find that, when viewing a naked-or-partially-naked woman I always look at the face first - it's now I learn if there's any point to looking at the rest of her. She looks like an interesting time.

I'm practical that way.

hmmm...let's check all the positives:

1) Totally hot
2) drinking Jack straight and from the bottle
3) already drunk

I wonder what she'd think of a strap on glock?

*pokes through a pile of rubble*

I was sure it was here somewhere. I know I saw it. How did it get buried so deep? A massive duststorm?

Oh good, here it is.

*pulls the bar out of a pile of other threads and enters*

Well this place needs a good cleaning. I'll start with a pitcher of Pago Pago.
