Two fantasy rekated ideas:

*Urban fantasy world where the masquerade of keeping magic hidden actually makes sense because magic has a strong conceptual observer effect and the more people can trace a spell of effect to you the weaker it will be. Thus it is mostly done in secret even from other magic users except during training

*Fantasy world wherein the gods are real but shaped by belief (like the Planescape campaign setting from D&D) and frequently grant people magical powers (again, like D&D). As a direct result of this, unlike D&D, the priesthoods of all deities are overwhelmingly dominated by the least wise members of the population; people with maniacal and unsupported levels of faith in their deity's power, as these are the best able to draw on that power and in turn their mania helps increase that power. (seriously, religion in a world where belief is power would logically be even more dominated by madmen than a world where the gods don't actually exist or a world where the gods are lovecraftian abominations)

Why?  I'll only die tired.

The most horrible thing about Howl is that I might not kill you.  Maybe you just wish for death, but death doesn't answer. 

I mean, seriously, LMNO...There's work to be done.

Seems like a fun book.

China announces plans to institute the survaillance system from 1984 and Paranoia by 2020

EDIT:
I think that the rap and metal music industries ought to co-opt this and reach out to the people in China with the absolute lowest scores and turn them into stars

Fuck Roger, thatís rough. Iím sorry.

Worse things have happened at sea.  I'll be fine for at least another 10 years, and during that ten years I will be a walking mass of altered chemistry and horrible glee.  I have decided to stop worrying about the future because it has sort of arrived.

I am in fact the face of the 21st century, and if you see me coming, you should run.

Time for those damn transhumanists to follow through on their promises to give all of us biomech bodies.

It's hard to describe how much I hate transhumanists.  They are the libertarians of science, only dumber.  For every geek thinking up new extreme body modifications that serve no actual purpose, there are five Rachel Haywires bilking the gullible.  Most of them have a hard core belief that they will benefit from this sort of shit because they support it, the same way libertarians think if they just believe hard enough, they will one day be admitted to The Club.

They are all worthless, and we will one day march on their stupid, entitled bones.  Well, you will march.  I will ride my Captain Pike wheelchair thing, blinking "YES" every time I get a wheel on one of their pelvises.
