i had a story write. i just didn't do anythimg about it.
it goes under the premise, that wishing something bad to happen to someone else, that you hate (well, obviously) , will only bring about trouble for the wisher.
the guy in the story is filled with loathing for those around him. neighbors, workmates, etc. he keeps wishing terrible things to happen to them. only his fare of misery keeps groing.
at last he meets a nemesis charachter. there is hostility on both sides and our guy goes to sleep wishing truly terrible things to happen to the other guy. all he gets is even worse things happening to him.
in the end he catches on to this. he does not /unable to let go of his haterd, but forces hinself to avoid those terrible fanatsies . he becomes more secure and good things happen to him. he will never have a positive relationship with his nemesis. but on the day to day, he avoids internalizing his hatred with these ritualuzed wishes.
Ok. here are a few..
1) you buy inspiration dies. they have pictures on tbem and as you roll them you get ideas for stories. but why the results keep leading you to distressing realizations and horrible ends?
2) you own a waffle iron, you experimrnt, inserting strange things inside. when you put in paper, a disturbing message appears..

4) people cheered when the rain returned..but not for long...
5) write about a family heirloom. its a loom that weaves heirs...
6) terrible ideas for games to play with toddlers
7) the funnel shape of dried ginkgo leaves are the perfect alibi..

Stupid questions II
1) hercules was given impossible missions. the aim was to discourage him/get him killed. wouldn't it be easier to ask him something 'easier', like curing cancer, or acheiving world peace?
2) why would the lepercheon keep his gold in a pot? wouldnt it be easier to hide it in a better way?
3) is the song 'octopus's garden an attempt by ringo to show his hate of the way paul and john were writing lyrics?
4) richard scarry's books seem ro be very limited as far as animals. mostly rabbits, cats, mice ,pigs, foxes and worms. while he occasionally adds a bear or a lion, they are far rarer. could this be a racial statment?
5) if there are remakes, could there be demakes? movies devoted to expunging the experience of another movie.
6) where i live, i have no access to facebook. what is the purpose of facebook?
7) could there be something useful/cool to do with bubblewrap, other than popping?
8) would soft-shelled turtles feel superior in some way to hard shelled ones? would they be jerks about it?

7) two rats fell into a vat of cream. one drowned , the other survived by floating on the butter the first rat churned. write a dialogue of how it went down.
8) describe in great enthusiasm a very mundane moment (let's say, waiting for the copt machine to warm up).
9) write about your normal day as an odessey.
