7 reasons

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

7 reasons

Post by 4000islandsguy » Tue Jul 22, 2014 12:40 am

So I am going to go into writing articles. I can't write have no special education. I can however afford substandard cheese and wine specials at the Intercontinental. So here are seven reasons to not buy a random website in a country you probably know very little about.

1. You will suck at it

2. You have to be at least semi-literate.

3. It won't get you chicks, in fact quite the opposite is true. Unless you are Naughty Nigel and can work it like that it, it just simply isn't worth the aggravation. Unless as one very astute poster said you can use it as a vehicle to drive sales to one's own business.

4. It won't make you richer and this goes back to the original problem with landing chicks.

5. All of your former friends you used to hang out with will complain incessantly and make absurd insinuations that you somehow stabbed them in the back.

6. Every idiot is doing it.

7. You could wind up with members like me. Or worse yet some random, waitress. plucking wannabe, that writes from time to time on your front page for free meals.

The "7 Reasons why..." franchise has been trademarked by another Cambodia-related website. Cease and desist with this and all further "7 Reasons why..." posts, or expect to hear from their lawyers. This is an outrage !!!

Admins please lock this thread, delete all posts and ban everyone and everything. Especially everyone with an "IP address". Thank you.

Could a mod change the title to the seven seasons to avoid any copyright infringement issues that may be lodged by adjacent retards in their parallel websites?

i mean after all the last thing we need is to get a bunch of snitches involved in this.

That would make a good sci-fi novel - Adjacent Retards in Parallel Universes.

Good thinking Stroppy. Seriously, if the 3 active threads on this page were to put together will be an awesome and seller in Hollywood movies. The heroines vs the villains on the interweb bitch fights.

I am going to write the first chapter of "adjacent retards in parallel universes" This isn't as easy as just layin down some rhymes so give me a little time to work on it. I am also not a great writer, so it could just be good enough to be passable on Cambodian websites. Time will tell. LOL

Write the opening paragraph, I'll write the second one, and then we'll throw it to a nominated person for the third, and so on...

Edit: Ground rules. Subsequent paragraphs must follow the established storyline, and can be no longer than 200 words.

I am game for it but stupid posts need to be pruned and no other threads can be merged into it. A separate thread people copy and past content into to discuss it would be ideal if people have comments. What I mean is if you write in the thread it is your line and time to do so. I will write the first chapter because paragraph is a bit too short to lay the ground work.

The plot is that aliens have found earth. They are technologically more advanced than humans in every sense. \when they discover the planet they come with intention of colonizing it. Although a few key events make them sympathize with humans. So the idea is to take a storyline that follows humans in everyday life. One is a monster like Dahmer, some everyday Joe that is a good father, and somebody else I can't think of right now. So they see the good and the bad and debate the merits of allowing the species to continue or make them extinct.

Meanwhile in another universe they x are doing this to y. It is a very basic storyline so far and if it sucks just say so but instead of paragraphs or lines we write individually if you can relate with a character perhaps jump in and add what you can with that. If my idea is completely stupid or my storyline has no entertainment value whatsoever then just tell me.

I am thinking anybody interested in writing anything could be either human or alien but the alien part is easier to write. So a space ship lands in Asia meets GM at Pontoon, abducts him, does the whole medical anal probe thing and then artificially inseminates him, leaving a baby that is neither man nor beast. The baby is almost human in appearance and wouldn't be shunned at GSM by any means but is very unique. That baby becomes the link between the aliens and what they refer to as sub-gonks. Will the war ignite, can Cambod's miracle baby negotiate in time, is the pizza adequate for normal gonks? We hope so because the fate of humanity could be at stake.

So pick your character.

So far I should be a human I think that helped smuggle and conceal GM"S baby from being exposed.

Formerly an adamant heterosexual who is now embarrassed about his previous sexual forays with women.

Decorated war veteran who served in a most diligent manner for 20 odd distinguished years for the Republic of North Korea.

In later life he accelerated his drinking and becomes a mormon. Convinced that his new found nonsensical religion trumps the aliens sophisticated technology he smuggled cambod's baby down to earth.In a desperate attempt to harbor and foster the child because this simple little baby could be the next messiah who can save man kind. Which sets off a chain events and the house of cards falling with his own set of idiosyncrasies and contradictions.

To sum it up the scariest "normal" man the aliens could meet.

Meanwhile what is stroppychops doing?

What is Cambod's artificial test tube butt baby like? What kind of kid can we envision him to be?

Nobody who is only a 440 member exists in this story as it is set a bit in the future so nobody would know who they are anyway.

It is late and I am a tad stoned but pick your character. Your Mother always told you that you could be a pilot or astronaut or whatever your heart desired. Up until this day she was lying to you so describe who you are and we can all have a bit of fun writing it into a story once the characters are established.

Give this a rewrite for clarity when you're a little less baked and you might be onto something entertaining there.

Yeah it was just to get some ideas down before I pass out and forget them. I think people just developing their own characters and some nuetral narrator between it could make for a more smooth and congruent piece.
