I agree with that guy's shirt.

melydia reminisces about a strange movement at her old college to convert people to Christianity through the use of...t-shirts.

See, non-Christians in midwestern America aren't generally non-Christians because they're unaware of Christian tenets. Information about Christ's message isn't exactly inaccessible, after all. They're non-Christians because they're apathetic or even antithetic to it as a belief system, much less a social group. A change in a person's religious beliefs during college is far more likely to be attributable to immediate friends or personal introspection than strangers in brightly colored t-shirts.

Context isn't asking you to put her on a shirt.

Who are we kidding?

30toseoul expresses some disbelief about characterization in fanfic:

from sgastoryfinders: "...at the end, John declares his love in front of the command staff and asks Rodney to marry him??"

*rolling*

I can see centaur!fic, tentacle!porn, and John Sheppard gnawing off his own arm all happening before that would. But hey, that's just me. ;-)



ethrosdemon responds:

Wait, are you attempting to insert PLAUSIBILITY into fic? What a freak!


QWP, locked post. Context has trouble talking about, you know... feelings.

Metaquotes wants you back!

jenni_the_odd and her friend neonid add on to Bowling For Soup's list of things in Texas that want an Ohio girl back:

Allrighty, folks!

If you've ever heard the Bowling for Soup song "Ohio (Come Back to Texas)" - Lyrics are here, you know that the basic premise is that this guy's girlfriend ran off to Ohio and he wants her to come back. And part of the song is listing the parts of Texas that want her to come back as well.
Troy Aikmen wants you back
Willie Nelson wants you back
NASA wants you back
And the Bush twins want you back
And Pantera wants you back
And Blue Bell wants you back

Etc.
Well, Michael and I are adding our own.

neonid: MY TACO WANTS YOU BACK
neonid: THE ALAMO WANTS YOU BACK
neonid: ENRON WANTS YOU BACK
jenni_the_odd: ALPINE JUST WANTS SOMEONE TO REALIZE IT'S THERE. HELLO? CAN ANYONE HEAR ME?

American expat and Aussie resident (soon to be citizen) morriganslayde finds something useful in the automated menus:
    While on the phone with the American Consulate I got the following recording:

    "To leave a message on your opinion of the United States Government, Press 4"

    It took all my energy to keep from pressing four.
F-locked post, QWP, i's dotted, t's crossed, hoops jumped through.
