  2. High School Hero by Cole Parker

    You guys are too kind. C
  3. High School Hero by Cole Parker

    Gaah! Who will it be for Whit ? When will it be ? The waiting is excruciating. Mike could make big bucks for the site if he would sell Preview Peeks at the whole package of one of Cole's serialized stories when its first chapter goes up.
  4. High School Hero by Cole Parker

    Can't say this latest development is a huge surprise, but we still don't know the reason for this trip down memory lane. R

  6. AwesomeDude Twice-weekly Posts Return!

    I for one deeply appreciate this move that has to make your job harder, Mike. But I also think it's very good for the site, very good for readers, and that's what we all want. Thanks for this. C
  7. After having posted on a once-weekly (Saturday) schedule from January 1st of this year, AwesomeDude will return to twice-weekly posting (Wednesdays & Saturdays) from April 2018. Although we still have lots of catching up to do -updating AD Author Pages and other 'housekeeping duties'- we've worked out a new schedule to try to catch up most of these by mid-year. This will give AD Authors and Readers more flexibility in posting and reading stories here at AD. Mike
  8. Stephen Hawking died today

    I was one the way to Dublin when news of this broke in the early hours of Wednesday morning. I actually heard it on the car radio of the taxi taking me to the airport. When I got to security there was a whisper going through the crowd waiting for clearance. All you could make out was the repetition of the name Hawking. He was a great thinker and his intellect will be missed.
  9. I can't believe Trump said this!

    Much as I despair with what I see in the political thinking in the Western World, there are times I come across something that gives hope. Finding this video was one of those times:
  10. Support System by Merkin

    Creak. Clump, clump, clump. Thanks, ChrisR! Clump, clump, clump. SLAM
  11. Congress: an Urban Dictionary definition

    Graeme, that's funny! Colin
  12. Congress: an Urban Dictionary definition

    Unix has a program called fortune that spits out random sayings, such as you may find in a fortune cookie. I still remember one from the 80s when I was at university: Pro is to Con as Progress is to Congress
  13. Stephen Hawking died today

    Stephen Hawking died today at the age of 76. Read more here. Colin
  14. Urban Dictionary listed this definition this morning. It's absolutely perfect! Congress: Where lobbyists go to buy their laws. Colin
  15. High School Hero by Cole Parker

    That shoe is hovering like one of those alien attack ships in "Independence Day." R
  16. High School Hero ~ Chapter 10 of a Novel by Cole Parker. High school is part wonderful, part wrenching for most everyone. Along the way, for the lucky ones, personal growth occurs. Terminus ~ A Short Story by William King. Love, denial, pain, and forgiveness in the end. Memory ~ A Flash Fiction Story by ColumbusGuy. My fondest memory. Featured stories are from our archive and we think you'll enjoy reading them again — or for the first time. Every Canadian Boy's Dream ~ A Short Story by Grant Bentley. This is one side of an online conversation between two boys, one a Canadian and one not. The question has been asked, "What does a 'normal' Canadian boy dream of?"

  17. Support System by Merkin

    A fascinating short story with a rather frightening ending. Complete with great sound effects!
  18. Searching for Him

    This is thus far a fascinating period piece with the advantage of things being seen from an international perspective. Very nicely done. Looking forward to more adventures with a "proper" charming group!

  20. Here's the link to an interesting and maybe even frightening view of how test audiences are being measured to provide movie makers with information about how we react to different kinds of scenes while watching a film. From The Verge. Colin
  21. Russian Roulette

    That makes it a very sad story. What a f-ing way to go. I've never understood things like that. I don't think I ever will. Colin
  22. Russian Roulette

    Yes, a very different story. I should have dedicated it to David F, but of course, he'll never get to read it! It's another tiny cameo from life. Terrible, sometimes things just go the hell wrong. I still think about him, he was twenty something.
  23. February Surprise by Altimexis

    Those two are the ones. Thanks. R
  24. Russian Roulette

    Wow! A definitely different flash fiction story. Russian roulette using heroin. Colin
  25. Site lag on forum.

    Given that the lag plus a reflex-driven second post occurs regularly, if not predictably, we should all use our initial post of the day to say something nice that bears repeating.
  26. Site lag on forum.

    It happened today when I posted. Lag then error message. So it's not fixed. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you pay for this forum? If you pay they should fix it. Someone should raise a ticket to flag the problem. This being my second post today, I confirm that it only happens on the first post. This posted instantly.
  27. Site lag on forum.

    I haven't. I also haven't had the problem at all lately. C
  28. I can't believe Trump said this!

    Rather than giving himself a medal, which would be farcical and so expected of him, I'm afraid he'll give himself a pardon. Then what do we do? C
