    I'm not sure why it would be doing that. Anyway, just make it two separate posts within the same thread for now.

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Gah, is it too late to enter? I know it's past the deadline, but would you consider accepting a late entry? I finished my short story about a day before my computer crashed, and it's only just back up & running.

    20 exactly?

    Dear Lpspider,

    What happens when there is exactly 20?

    Just curious to know how you're handling that.

    A paradox. Resulting in the implosion of the internet, and the collapse of modern civilization :) Why do you ask?

    I prefer my idea, chocolate bear. You oversimplify things.

    Well, they'll both lead to the same outcome, so I don't see the problem.

    Yeah... but it was just too hard to even imagine life without the internet. How am I supposed to complete lessons without Wikipedia?!

    Because twenty is how many were submitted, by my count. It kinda leaves both possibilities open, so I was curious if we were going to be "culled".

    It's not a big deal. Please feel free to carry on as if nothing happened.

    -Ken

    PS. Really like your story, Banzai. That good - that young? I think I hate you.

    Awww, shucks :redface:

    Thanks, that really means a lot, and I'm glad you liked it.


    And basically, we haven't a clue what Daniel will do, so we're reduced to making daft predictions.

    Actually, there are 23 entries. You missed the second page.

    Ah, there's a second page...

    You know, I'd been keeping count, and I was sure we'd broken the 20 mark.

    Forgive my oversight :redface:

    Gah...I won't be liking being eliminated without a vote :p. But if there are more than 20, then at least one matter is resolved.

    But-but I wanted the universe to explode. That would be pretty.

    It would, but I flatly refuse to clean up the mess.

    Just remember things like that are somebody else's problems. We're just bystanders so we just have to stand by and laugh.

    Hmmm. Even that, though, is harder when your atoms are scattered across the cosmos...
