Writer's Block: Capital offense
synthianewton
What is your opinion of the death penalty? How important is this issue in deciding which political candidates you support?


I looked at this for my degree, looking at many different cases. I felt rage when it was clearly circumstantial evidence and a media circus, and more rage when the Manson family slipped through a death sentance hiatus in california. I've come to the conclusion that I can't get to a conclusion. There will alaways be, for me, doubts in alot of cases whether they really did it or are being set up.

In England we don't have it any more but many, many times I feel that it should be there. But I feel fear that a political party will come along pro-death penalty and the public will be swept away due to many problems with the structure of society and see it as a quick-fix. Its cost efficient and keeps us safe, right? I guess Germans in the 1930s felt that way, for a while.

If you could have any fictional creature from a book, film, or TV show as your pet, which one would you choose, and why?



The squirrel-foxes out of Nausicaa and Laputa =)

Writer's Block: Holiday blues

What is the most emotionally challenging aspect of the holidays for you? Do you enjoy this season more or less than you did as a child?


I suppose the most challenging aspect is the fact that I'm expected to get up EVERY DAY and work instead of hibernating 'til the middle of March. As a child I slept more, so I guess I had a chance to enjoy it.

What three items would you place in a time capsule to help future generations understand you?


1) a packet of noodles
2) an autobiographical comic of myself
3) a frozen body/head (my own) with the words 'TO UNDERSTAND MORE MAKE ME LIVE AGAIN' on my forehead.

Writer's Block: Super-human

If you could choose one super-power, what would it be and why?



The mood I'm in today, I think it will be along the lines of Captain Atom's power.. lots of sciency things to manipulate, and if someone stabs me up, you better do it from a distance....

KABABOOM!

Friday the Thirteenth

Huh.


Chaos ensues. There are so many pieces of stories floating in my mind, but it is almost like I can't tell if I have pieced them from cultural and media influences- or if I have truly plucked them from my imagination. How can you tell? Is it purely the confidence in which you tell your story?

Evolution
synthianewton

Today I have been looking at a page about how 'life on Earth is one big extended family'.  The diagram looks really neat, but also scary as it showed 5 mass extinctions (over several hundred millions of years mind you). 

The way it portrayed these extinctions in the familty tree makes humans literally hanging on the precipice, but visually made us look like a growth of mould.   So I suppose we will hang on regardless, like a stubborn bit of mould.

how did I make friends with myself in Livejournal? 


( T 3 T )



more importantly, how do I unfriend myself without putting the fate of my livejournal into question?  I don't wanna re-do it!

Hello and good morning
synthianewton
Hello!


I am starting my new journal to work hard at being creative!  I have chickened out of the Na No Wri (?) Mo until I can get my confidence up
( + 3 + );   so expect crazy journal entries talking about nothing in particular!
