Amusing Google queries of the day

Here’s some of the queries that have brought readers to SN recently.

  • Can I exorcise myself with boiling water? Umm, I’d recommend running that past a priest.  Or anybody else that’s not completely nuts.
  • what are two common mistakes a writer make that could cause his writing to be ineffective fo readers?r. Punctuation and spelling errors.
  • is the scenario of superheroes getting powers from an explosion copyrighted–no, copyrights don’t work that way.  The main problem with using a cliche is less that you’ll be sued for ripping off a particular story than that editors (and/or eventually readers) will feel like your stuff isn’t fresh enough.  Plus, I don’t think that it’s all that cliche.   (The only remotely prominent competitors that come to mind are Daredevil and Static Shock, and the explosion itself only plays a major role for SS).
  • hawt edward cullen pix–YOU ARE RUINING THE INTERWEBZ
  • wereterrier–yes!

    *snort* If someone asked me about using boiling hot water to exorcise themselves, I’d be tempted to say yes to see if they’d do it. Only then they would… and they might sue me… somehow. *sigh*

    There’s only one way to find out…

    *takes a pot of boiling water and dumps it on her head*

    A few second degree burns later… *concentrates* Nope, the demons are still here. Sigh.
