Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Intermittens #5
« on: December 18, 2008, 11:08:16 pm »
I like both ideas actually.  Can they be combined?

color me bland, but I'd prefer the issues to be numbered sequentially. It will be much less confusing down the line, especially when we have over 10 issues. Is it really much of a mindfuck to confuse ourselves by having randomly numbered issues or a bunch of issue 5s? Keep it Simple!

For the most part I agree, however:

Would it be amusing to skip an issue and yet pretend it actually existed?  We could make fake letters to the editor complaining about how offensive the issue was, etc.

This idea amuses me greatly. A "letters to the editor" section filled with damning criticisms of how horrible the (nonexistent) issue #4 was could be pretty funny.


Dear Editor,

While I was generally pleased with the content of Intermittens issues 1 through 3,
I'm afraid that issue number 4 was a shameful stain on this publication's young
reputation. Neither I nor any of my friends are easily offended, as we are all
fun-loving people, but the "humor" in that issue was simply atrocious and should
not have been made public. I don't know what other sick ideas you people have in
those twisted minds of yours, but please, keep them to yourselves and let's have
Intermittens be a generally enjoyable and thought-provoking magazine once again.

Sincerely,
Robert W.




Yo, magazine people!

All I have to say is: what the hell is WRONG with you?! I mean, I liked your
magazine up until now, but damn... At the very least, I think future issues
could do without any more content like that on page 6 of issue #4.

-Jerry




Dear editor,

Wow! Intermittens #4 was the best one yet! I got kicked out of class when I
burst out laughing at the centerfold (genius, by the way!) and my math teacher
saw it, but I still think it's great. More issues like that one, please!

YOU ARE GOING TO HELL.

If you try to strike a meme down, it will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

4 out of 5 here. I can't figure out what I haven't done already.

The only thing I haven't tried was drowning the kid.

edit: I tried drowning the kid, it didn't change the ending. Huh.


I can't get the last ending either :(

The context is that the Principia Discussion subforum is at the top, and therefore it is "The Roof." There's a pool there, or so we like to claim.

"Okay," I said into the cell phone, my voice just beginning to crack, "I'll see you later. Bye." I still had to go into the bookstore to get something, and I was suddenly very, very glad I was wearing sunglasses. The family cat of the past 17 years was gone, and when someone you've known your whole life suddenly dies the tears don't care who's watching.


Cainad,
Should maybe stop writing IRL stories

Yes. Very very yes.

Off the top of my head I can remember of two people whom I knew for three measly weeks that had the same effect on me. Both of them were teachers at "The Summer Institute for the Gifted" (pretentious name, yes, but one of the best and most fun things that ever happened to me), essentially a glorified summer camp where we slept in college dorms. In my case, I attended Vassar College campus.

The first guy was named Greg (no connection to RWHN's Greg, I think), and he was an Improv comedy coach. I think anyone who's done a serious amount of improv knows the kind of effect that can have on your life, especially if you started out as a timid and shy kid. The second guy was a physics teacher named Jonathan, a tall guy with iconic curly gray hair and full beard. He was the equivalent of a personal Carl Sagan or Jacob Bronowski: I'd always liked science, but he elevated the idea of the scientific mindset ("The more evidence, the better" and "Neither you nor your instruments are as accurate as you think," for example) to something awe-inspiring.

I knew each of these guys for three weeks. In fact, I calculate that I spent about 22.5 hours each in their company, total. They are probably the two most important people besides my parents who made me who I am today.

After taking another bite from my bagel, I asked the other one, "So this is mutual, right? You're not being forced into it?" She said it was a mutual agreement, and with that they were married. I cheerfully told them to fuck off, and suddenly realized that I had sealed a lesbian relationship between two non-lesbians.


^True story.
