  • Sat, 10:15: I wonder sometimes if I didn’t read too much Robert E. Howard early on. All my fantasy comes out “fighty mcfight fight fight.” :P #AmWriting
  • Sat, 10:17: Where are my wondrous vistas? My grand ideas? My moments of beauty? Action is cool, but it should be just one piece. #AmWriting
  • Sat, 10:20: Ah well. On we go. I’ll keep the thought in the back of my mind. #AmWriting
  • Sat, 10:38: From the good news dept: large chunks of hate-related incidents that immediately came out after election are being revealed as urban legend.
  • Sat, 10:39: Not all, by a long stretch, which is the bad news.
  • Sat, 10:39: But the real incidents are being responded to by community rally, which is good news.
  • Sat, 10:41: Point is, as always, verify and check context.
  • Sat, 10:43: Yes. It is still a problem. The worst of it seems to be happening in schools.
  • Sat, 10:44: The thing with school violence especially is that bullies will use whatever is handy as a cudgel.
  • Sat, 10:44: “Ah ha! It’s okay to beat up on ______ now, because they’re the bottom of the hierarchy!"
  • Sat, 10:47: It’s “slur of the day” for bullies. This week it’s race. Next week it’ll be orientation. The week after, gender ide…
  • Sat, 10:49: There are still far too many real incidents and I’m not saying “everything’s fine” by any stretch. We must carry on.
  • Sat, 10:51: My point is that for whatever reasons that drives people to do these things, there are hoaxes and distortions painting things darker.
  • Sat, 10:51: Stay clear, stay focused, and concentrate on what’s real.
  • Sat, 10:52: This is advice for myself as much as it is for anyone else.
  • Sat, 11:04: Yeah, that’s the thing. Kids always push boundaries. It’s part of what they do. Teachers are right at the front of…
  • Sat, 11:12: Random Thought: What effect does Wonder Woman’s golden lasso have on pathological liars?
  • Sat, 11:13: For that matter, does the golden lasso distinguish between deception and false information?
  • Sat, 11:14: I suspect these things have probably been addressed in the comics. It’s just one of those “is the elevator worthy of Thor’s hammer” things.
  • Sat, 11:20: Clearly the golden lasso must be able to result in an answer of “I don’t know.”
  • Sat, 11:20: Otherwise you could just wrap it around someone and ask, “Is there a God?"
  • Sat, 11:21: “The golden lasso compels you to answer truthfully: who put the bomp in the bomp-ba-bomp-ba-bomp?"
  • Sat, 11:21: I’m pretty sure “compulsion to answer” is part of the lasso’s power.
  • Sat, 11:23: I expect it would have to be. Or at least what they believe. If they think the dress is blue and gold, that’s what…
  • Sat, 11:29: “The golden lasso compels you to answer: does this outfit make my butt look too big?"
  • Sat, 11:32: Who DID put the bomp in the bomp-ba-bomp-ba-bomp, anyway? Is it the same person who put the ram in the rama-lama-ding-dong?
  • Sat, 11:32: That’s basically what I’ve been getting at. I think to not break the world, it has to be “What the person believes…
  • Sat, 11:33: Which leaves a lot of room for things like simply being wrong, or having mental blocks or what-not.
