    That's awesome!

    I actually liked what Gary had to say. Rebecca can't write...

    :rofl:

    Thanks for posting this.

    Men! :rolleyes:

    :rofl:

    While I enjoyed the tea-sipping, neurotic Laura getting blasted away by space aliens, I'm guessing that if the assignment were real, they'd have both failed. They weren't really building a story together, but trying to push their own independent stories in spite of what the other was writing.

    Instead of jane and john they could do a new line of rebecca and gary stories for children of dysfuctional families.

    "The news simultaneously excited her and bored her. She stared out the window, dreaming of her youth, when the days had passed unhurriedly and carefree, with no newspapers to read, no television to distract her from her sense of innocent wonder at all the beautiful things around her."

    This is exactly the "I don't care about politics, history, the state of the world or society, so let's focus on my own feelings now!" attitude in alot of women of my age that is seriously getting on my nerves lately... :grumpy:

    Which differs from the men of the same age who have the "I don't care about politics, history, the state of the world or society, so let's focus on sports" attitude. :biggrin:

    It's hard to say. Snopes seems to pass judgement without really knowing.

    Heh, I was all but hooked by one, but only because it made the evening news before being debunked.

    Well there is another story like this, where plastic products have accumulated in a quiet, calm area of square miles of ocean, somewhere in the eastern Pacific. Apprently there are places in the Atlantic (Sargasso Sea) where stuff collects:

    The “Eastern Garbage Patch”

    How did she expect things to progress after she killed off her partner's character? Not only that, she killed him off with no effort what so ever. "He bumped his head...". What kind of thought went into that act? She could have at least put a little thought and consideration into how she offed him!

    Not only did she kill off his character in a casual manner, she wiped out war and space travel, virtually closing off any avenue of communication between her and Gary.


    I agree with Gary. He was stuck with a real lemon of a partner that absolutely refused any chance of cooperation and compromise.
