Really then? Show me where I said that. And what do you mean there are no doubting facts? You should doubt any "fact" you're confronted with.

Very well. Tis very old though.

NFN is a great writer, but AVPs was far more entertaining with that bit with the security camera. I love setups told from an interesting point of view, and so I'm voting for AvP on this one.


Eh. Point taken about facts.

And Force_Echo is now confronted by his past, that one not smarter-than-everyone-better-than-everyone person that people here actually liked. Let's see how this plays out!

And force_echo lets us down again! Will his streak let us down another year or can he break out of his "i'm a real piece of shit person" slump soon?

I don't know, I've been asking the same question to Silversurfer since I came here. Tell you what, you stop being an idiot troll, and then I'll stop being a dick. As far as years go though, you're 0 for 3, so I wouldn't count on shit changing.  ;)

Well I think he would be more than 0 for 3, considering he's been here longer than that. Tis math. Also, is this taking place in PMs or what? Never seen you ask that.

Yeah, but I haven't. I can't judge him farther than what I've actually observed. Before you call math, try basic logic.

Challenge accepted. I will stop being a troll if you stop being a dick. You've changed a lot in 3 years. Not saying that's a good thing, just saying you have.

For the religious person angle you may want to define what causes them to question their faith. One way is to have them contract a disease or something. Or simply move to a different environment such as a previously home schooled person entering a secular school for the first time. Also think about the character is it an adult questioning their faith, a teenager, mayby a kid whose grama died and for the first time is thinking spiritually.

 

If you go the disillusioned patriot approach I wouldn't know much about soldiers but alternativly you could make it a westener going out to work in the east and being suprised by what they have in common and don't have in common with their hosts. And this new environment causes them to think about their own country, its ways and its impact on the world. This would not nessasarily have to be negative. It could be a guy in Saudi Arabia observing their joke of a human rights record and wondering where their feeling of superiority to Americans coming from. Or going to Japan and being shocked by the institutional racism and the fact that their hosptals operate on standard business hours.

This could also be applied to a country like Britain or Ireland. In that sence it would less be a blow to his own patriotism and more a change in preconcieved notions about other countries. Hell it could be used for comedic purposes more easily if it set in Europe. i.e. Chad goes to Britain expecting to find friendly, classy people with cool accents. And instead finds well Britain.

Alright. Deal. When I see you being trollish, I'll call you out. And whenever I'm attacked, I'll just point it out and not retaliate.

Sweet, but we...well, the admins/mods should probably fix force's member title, since that is an attack? Just to start off properly.

 

Tis cool regardless.

What, I'm not apart of any challenge. My actions and comments haven't sunken so low that I need a challenge.
