    Maybe this is a sign that humanity is taking the plot of Idiocracy a little too seriously...

    God I love that movie! I tell everybody I know to watch it. It's sadly very true.

    I keep telling people to watch it. No one listens. It is a sobering warning... If things get to that point, the lizard overlords are welcome to the planet.

    Idiocracy is a future documentary. The only thing Mike Judge got wrong was "500 years in the future", it's more like 50 years in the future.....

    That and in 500 years there won't be any more people with blond hair and blue eyes. In fact, most white genetic traits will have been bred out.

    Reworked it a little this morning and hope to get a little more done this afternoon.
    I started editing and rewrites without my ending getting done. It was the only way that I could bring myself to work on it bc I was stuck on the last few chapters. Maybe it'll come to me easier the second time through it. Good Luck!!

    You know, I heard something similar when I was in my early twenties, that within fifty years of then there would be no more redheads.

    My house has three, two new to the equation since that prediction.

    You're going to want that when they shear you bald and the scales start to develop from their implanted DNA.

    I intend to ask the lizard overseers for a job extracting certain people and using my skills to get information out of them. I have my resume all ready to send out, too.

    If I get to scale walls and regenerate limbs, I'm completely good with that.

    No, thank goodness, I have left all that silliness behind me.


    And traded it in for the silliness here.

    Well, I did that a few times already. I'm at the point now where I kind have to put up or shut up and write a solid ending. Getting there, though. Hopefully this week. *crosses fingers*

    Does GB have lactic acid in it? or...urea? I find that the two are KEY for scaly skin.

    I missed you guys. I'm so behind in my stuff I can't believe it. I'm just now catching up. Which is good because I get to work all day tomorrow.

    I always get soap in my eyes when I was my hair. Every morning I have red eyes when I get out of the shower.

    When did this happen? Is this like a "one time, at band camp" thing? Like, "one time, when I was my hair"?
