Full speed ahead, my good man.

Need to make sure you reach escape velocity by the time it's taken TO THE WALL.

Oh, okay, and seems responsible for both Kikaider and Super Sentai (the footage from which eventually became Power Rangers).

Looks like Power Rangers cinematography and matches the way they would typically introduce baddies.

Eighteenth Moon, Third Quarter of the Snows, the Year of December three thousand two hundred and Fifty two

I rise from bed and dress.

Before I leave my quarters, I kneel on the hard sandstone floor and praise the Eighth Sigil adorning my door, offering my morning repetitions.

"Many days hath December,
No other can we remember.
Still we recall the fifty-third day,
our failure then, and why we pray.
Kneeling and reverential,
We forgot the eggs, they were essential."

It'll refresh every time you load the page! I'm thinking I might make it possible to save funny ones.

These are excellent and inspired me to put some time this evening into making a horoscope generator. At the moment it only has legitimate horoscopes as a source text, but I think I'll gradually teach it to say terrible things. Initial attempts to incorporate complete works of Lovecraft only generated nonsense so it may need more finesse.

Edit: It just told me 'Your professional trajectory may not convey the intensity of your nose.' and I don't know what to do with that.

A legal drama in which the first 3D printed human struggles to interpret legislation to determine who his birth parents are.

I catch the flicker of a frown cross my face before I school it away. She must have caught it. I should have known better but I need more data and it's taking longer than I expected.

As I study her face for acknowledgement of my error, the information starts scrolling in, mocking my impatience. Reviews and star ratings, recommendations of similar partners. I begin to approach, skimming the content of the reviews as I cross the room. I freeze, sensing a similar increase in tension among others sharing the room.

They've got the same notification I do. An anomalously favourable partner-competitor ratio coupled with fairly dramatic promiscuity estimates at a nearby venue. It's a sensitive situation to navigate, as even those not subscribed to the somewhat exclusive feeds I (and evidently some others) have access to can sense that something is happening. I need to bail on this place and figure out my approach to the other without disclosing too much information through my behaviour.

Dad is in hospital with HA-MRSA and cellulitis after a hip replacement, so that's not great.
