But in all seriousness, get well soon. I find that carrying a small voodoo doll wards away bad luck and illness. I haven’t been sick since I found mine last year.

Get well soon! Being sick genuinely sucks, I should know in my current situation. It feels like the seven dwarves are mining for jewels in my skull, but my horrible teachers dumped a bunch of homework on me. I have to suffer before I get to rest.

I have a small piece of paper that I wrote the number seven on 49 times (that’s seven times seven) in seven different colours. I keep it in my pencil case near exam times to give me extra luck. It didn’t work for maths last year though, my whole class failed.
Whovian, that’s pretty nifty… although, I am confused as to how you turned it into a doomsday device…

Haha, I don’t know how either. Maybe it had something to do with my mental energy. I wanted to pass my other three exams (and did) but when it came to maths, I thought “Bleh, whatever”. Maybe that’s why everybody failed.
Okay, I sound so bonkers right now. Haha. Next thing I know I’ll be reading The Secret and asking the universe for a bicycle.
Comics are a visual medium, and that can be an advantage over prose when it comes to storytelling. The motion and force in Wonder Woman’s punch, the adorkable grin on Ms. Marvel’s face, that gorgeous two-page spread of Gotham City: these are images that can be harder to get across in writing. But don’t get […]
My expectations were modest — e.g. “What if they made a watchable version of Green Lantern?” The movie is better than I think anyone could have reasonably anticipated. It’s more like an exceptionally funny version of Star Wars. 5 stars. PS: I’d suggest against bringing most kids younger than 13. The violence level is […]
In my opinion, it was the best superhero movie this year (Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America 2 so far). UPDATE: Not as good as Guardians of the Galaxy. The action scene with the speedster (Quicksilver) was amazing, but I think it indicates how ridiculously hard it would be to use a speedster as anything […]
Often with works of fiction that involve superpowers, writers look for ways to effectively limit or check those powers. This is done to keep characters vulnerable to challenges while maintaining dramatic effect within the story. After all, if a character can consistently deal with situations by using their unrestricted abilities, how invested will a reader [
One of my coworkers (who asked to remain anonymous) received this business proposal from Ghana. Dear Maccabee My name is Barrister Agams Enoch Mifetu, the personal attorney of late Mrs.Eunice Maccabee based here in Accra republic of Ghana I did a lot of web search before choosing your contact from the skype. It is […]
My expectations were far too high — with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of ~90% at the time I saw it, I was expecting a really excellent movie. There were a lot of competent moments but personally I wouldn’t recommend rushing out to theaters to see it. In Scott Pilgrim, there’s a scene where Chris Evans […]
