I've been adding stories to ShortNews lately.
It's pretty fun. I think I had second or third highest points
last month. There's a guy there that has like 1000 stories so
he gets points from what he writes that month and also from when
people go to his old stuff, so he's always in 1st place, so there's
no real point in trying too hard, but I still have fun writing one
here and there. But anyways what you do is go to a news paper
article online, take everything they say and truncate it down to 3
paragraphs. Each paragraph can only contain 250 characters, so
it can be a challenge trying to paraphrase all the details.
But it's also really fun and a great brain exercise. It's easy
to create and add news, and the person with the most points each
month gets like a $50 gift certificate to Amazon each month.
A lot of people with a good sense of humor go
there and comment on stories. Some of them are the wittiest
people I've seen in the last few years. Not like most idiots
who think dick and fart jokes are the only kind of humor. That
shit really aggravates me sometimes. I could care less about
profanity, or even extreme in bad taste kinds of jokes about dicks
and shit, it doesn't offend me. What offends me is that people
think I'm too fucking retarded to get any other kind of humor.
Like we're a nation of 3 year olds. Sometimes I wonder if we
are when I meet some abercrombie-clad douchebag, but every now and
again I meet somebody with a speck of intelligence and it's just
nice to talk with them and not have to talk about how much they love
Obama or the newest dick joke to come off of South Park.
Seriously, if it has to do with masturbation or diarrhea, then I
don't want to fucking hear your dumb fucking mouth form the words.
Update 2012: I haven't done
ShortNews in a long, long time. Kind of fell out of it, maybe
one day I will go back, but not today.
