I like this because you know that would be damn good fanfiction.

Someone posts a thread called "News stories that alter their own narrative structure", containing a story about a Florida Man doing something. This story is a memetic infovore: it eats information out of the brains of the readers, then shits out new information, and because it is capital-N news it is absolutely true (of course), and so it modifies reality. A group of quants working for an obscure mutual fund firm decide to study it, in order to make money off it. David Silver, while analyzing patterns in vowel frequency of twitter traffic, determines that there is an 85% chance that this will totally modify reality in the general vicinity and social network of everyone currently actively or passively involved with the stock market, and so he must team up with Vladmir Putin and Emeritus Pope Karl Ratzinger to break the administrator password of PD in order to delete the thread before reality breaks.


I am not “full of hate” as if I were some passive container. I am a generator of hate, and my rage is a renewable resource, like sunshine.

Not too weird, but an idea I'm going to explore a bit more in depth:

An alternate historical novel in which Norway's communists turn violent in reaction to state repression and King Haakon's refusal to cooperate with them (he famously said "I am also King of the communists," in this story he does not). With bases deep in the thick forests of Eastern Norway, the communists wage guerrilla war against the central government. The story follows some young communists, torn between youthful idealism and disillusionment in the face of the brutality of war.

I had a dream last night, half remembered, which has this premise:

The universe, at a sub-quantum level, behaves in accordance with semantic rules.

So in addition to cheating, Universe like playing word games.  Which means Cunning Linguists rule the earth.
