    I found Small Gods curiously unfunny. Decent enough story but weird lack of humour.

    Remembrance

    All across Europe today people are commemorating the start of the great tragedy known as World War I. I thought it fitting to take a moment to commemorate it here, on The Offspring BBS. Why, you may...

    Sorry, I lost the thread slightly, what have you heard many times about White Hispanics?

    I'm trying to find statistics about White Hispanics because it's a group I know nothing about but I'm...

    I'm certainly not aware of any. I think there was a time when Irish immigrants were held in rather low regard ( sorry! :P ) but still nothing like what you're describing, as far as I know....

    Of course, and that supports my assertion that it's primarily an economic issue. However, if you look at percentages you will find a disproportionate amount of black and hispanic people live in...

    I think the concept really only works well in the US. Like WebDudette said, it is a very real thing there. Various factors have conspired throughout the history of the nation in order to make it so....

    How was it? I generally adore anything described as Machiavellian but I haven't been able to make myself actually read any of Machiavelli's work yet.

    I agree the clues were there that something wasn't right but I just could never have expected what was to come. Largely because, from a storytelling perspective, it was kind of an insane choice....

    That's quite interesting because for me the opposite is true. As a kid I had no problem with scary films or games or really images of any kind. But when reading, when creating the vision as you put...

    I love how King used the Bachman pseudonym to really try out some different stuff to his usual fare. I mean, I guess that's always the point of writing under an assumed name, and in reality King...

    I may give Facebook another go

    But since social media creeps me the fuck out I'm not using anything close to my real name.

    Hi, I'm Horatio Gnarr, pleased to meet you. If anyone wants to add me on Facebook, feel free.
