I actually liked what Gary had to say. Rebecca can't write...
Thanks for posting this.
Yeah, I'm with Gary on that one.
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.
And Rebecca and Gary lived happily ever after. :rofl:
:rofl: It wouldn't surprise me.
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.
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: That was great.
Sorry, but no. Wrong side of the Atlantic
So what do Russian (Lithuanian, Estonian or whatever) men care about?
It's a funny piece, but I am not sure this was really the product of a collaborative class project.
It's hard to say. Snopes seems to pass judgement without really knowing.
I've been skeptical of everything passed around the Net since Snopes revealed the truth about my beloved Smithsonian Barbie story:
Heh, I was all but hooked by one, but only because it made the evening news before being debunked.
I believed it, too!
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”
Plastics in Pacific: Activists survey the mess
Swirling plastic vortex menaces sea life
Damn you, Snopes.
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.
They don't actually say it isn't, more that nobody really knows. It may have started as part of a project and been embellished as it was passed around too. It's still pretty funny.
Of course, if you want to see a good example of collaborative story writing...https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=56910
Don't expect an ending though...like most great authors, we must have an unfinished work when we die so everyone can ponder and speculate how we might have concluded it.
