  11. We Are is all right but not great: never trust a Guardian review of an Eggers book, as he writes for the paper. The best story is “Your Mother and I” and a lot of reviewers seem to agree that “Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly” is the best though to me it seemed like just another travel-story among many others. If only bothered to review it on Palimpsest, you could have saved your pennies…

  12. Dragon Age Origins has the best story of this generation, now it is obvious that you guys clearly have no clue about awards. Stick to the jokes please

  13. Nurul Syazwani says:

    In my opinion, I would say that the best story is The Alien Corpse at Rosewell. I like it so much compared to other story because the words used in the passage are easy to understand and i know what the author trying to deliver. The film about UFO and alien are going to be an interesting one eventhough we never have a chance to see them in our life. as for me, alien is an imagination and imagination is one of an illustration that allow us to think beyond our self ability.

  14. blasak mazurin says:

    At least one gunman opened fire Thursday afternoon at a psychiatric clinic outside Pittsburgh, injuring several people, including a police officer who was grazed by a bullet.

  15. I agree with you. Sam and Carl are wonderful guys. I am friends with both them, and I do enjoy their company. It was a funny story, and it so happens to be literally the story of my life. If anything, I was poking fun of myself. There was no intention to or belittle anyone in the blog, just to poke fun at the situation. No hard feelings, just a funny story.

  16. They did that at my old high school in Birmingham but they did it with the football team for the whole season. It was actually pretty fair and all that, but from what the parents and coaches said they were looking for the best story lines–even if they were minor in comparison to what really was going on. But it left the school in a good light.

  17. I believe that the truth will come out. Right now, we are all going on speculation of what happened. If information comes out that the Police Officer acted unjustified, then he should pay the price. If it turnes out that the Professor was not showing proper respect to an Officer who was just doing his job, then hopefully people will see him for what he is (or would be if this is the case).

  18. Yes Mr. Obamma should appologize. He had no business getting involved!
    Dr. Gates acted inappropriatly with a police officer, the officer did what his procedures said to do.
    Why is this so hard for Dr. Gates and Mr. Obamma to understand???

  19. mart ken says:

    “This is like an episode of New Girl” – oh, it’s been far too long since I’ve come to work with a funny story to share

  20. It says “identified” peace officer. Being that the police officer identified themselves as being a police officer, and was probably telling them to drop the weapon….at which point they did not and they made the very conscious decision to shoot and kill the police officer. To me that is cut and dry first degree. It is not saying that a police life is more valuable than anyone elses. Not sure where you got that from. Not sure I would want to walk in a police shoes and have to have the real possibility of having a gun pointed toward me on a daily basis….

  21. pezzo vima says:

    Gaiman is utterly brilliant, a mythologizer who really be matched. His novels go a little wobbly, but his stories are astounding, and say his “Murder Mystery” is the best story ever read, probably breaking about a dozen copyright rules with this, though. I am, by the way, thinking about skipping the Baltics. Surely enough is enough for the first of the year.

  22. Kind of a Funny Story is an excellent book, it is not just another novel about a depressed teen, it is about a journey through life, and a journey through a mental institution. You can really get into the characters, and I think it gets people into perspective about what life in a mental institution is like, and gives you more respect for those people. Kind of a Funny Story is also, well, a funny story, there are a few laugh-out-loud moments (including my favorite about a German Shepherd-Chihuahua mix)! I recommend it for young children though, because it does contain things such as drug use etc…

  23. Funny story from a 4 year old! Not so funny story of todays churches. You hit the nail on the head Mike, even in 06. Its not a fun thing to come out, of what you have discovered, is the harlot churches. And when you tell them WHY you come out, that really makes us unpopular it?!?! Oh well, we choose to please God and not man who is church.

  24. It seems that Councilman Greenwell was confrontational towards the police officer from the beginning. In addition, he stupidly attempted to get out of his vehicle to talk to the police officer. Mr. Greenwell definitely was asking for trouble when he did this. learned to politely follow any instructions given by a police officer. It is not trouble to argue with these individuals.

  26. Bonnie in Texas says:

    Jack, we put kids in time out for using the word stupid. Come on, the man in the world have a bigger vocabulary and he find a better word? Personally, I think the police officer followed procedure and should be commended for doing so in the face of an obviously bigoted homeowner. Caucasian American and would never consider being disrespectful to a police officer of any race. It is NEVER called for and can only exacerbate any already tense situation. I think Gates has a chip on his shoulder – more like a redwood! As for the president, well, maybe he the man in the world.

  27. Special occasions my eye! it a bottle of vodka one evening? all done it – I did two pints of gin once (in the first year – does anyone else remember that night? Oh, we had a laugh we!) and that was pretty messy. Not the worst, I grant you, but fairly bad.

  28. Kelly Kane says:

    We have worked with and cured thousands of children and infused their parents with hope at the Enuresis Treatment Center in Farmington, MI. Besides being a deep sleep disorder, research shows that bedwetting is also genetic. If both parents have a history of bedwetting there is a 77% chance the child will also wet the bed. The average length of treatment is 6 months, and we are we can correct the sleep disorder and end bedwetting. Go to http://www.freebedwettingguide.com for more info.

  32. I know exactly what you mean! Another good one for me is when doing the dishes – no one in the whole house will come near me then. come not to mind though, I have some of my best story ideas either in the shower or while doing the dishes. I thought for a while it might be some magical in the water – but far more likely to be the fact of being left alone!

  33. In some ways Stephanie is doing what the Stratfordians try to do with their guy: take the scraps available and make the best story you can with them.

    With DeVere, there are a lot of scraps, so she is able to make a super story. And she can use some of the great insights that the Stratfordians have come up with over the centuries.

    Funny, the Stratfordians are loath to borrow from the Oxfordians because they claim their research is so speculative.

    Okay, enough from me for a while!

  34. That was a very funny story, and thats what it should remain as… a funny story.

    But to use it to justify their right to the land is illogical.

    The same story could be used by the American Indians in relation to the Eurpeon conquest of the Americas. They were here before we ever arrived. But for us our forefathers came up with “manifest destiny” to justify our actions of expansion!

    This is for blind-item junkies, gossip addicts and anyone just fascinated by a “too good to be true” story. This is celebrity urban mythology at its finest.

    I hope Aaron Sorkin and Sofia Coppola fight over who gets to turn this into a movie.

  36. I want to know if the security officer was an off duty cop and if so are thet authorized to use the taser? Was the weapon supplied by the stadium?
    A off duty police officer is not suppose to use their equipment in this way.
    I really dont approve because it will just lead to more and eventually someone is going to have a stoppage or something else from being tasered before this nonsence and misuse of this weapon, yes non leathal weapon,is put back into the context it was meant for.

    My teenage daughter would never do that, as a pretty basic value in our family is to comply with all officer demands/requests; physical resistance is simply a vehicle to a felony. For assaulting a police officer, lucky that she get worse than a punch.

    This police officer is far outnumbered, and having all involved control the situation. It is well within the police rights to do necessary to gain control of the situation. She have been hit if she (violently) take action against the LEO.

When I was a Nitmiluk, the guide we had told us a funny story about how the town of Katherine flooded very badly years ago, some locals grabbed a tinny and went in to rob the liquor store, since all was abandoned due to the water. They got cornered by a saltie at the door and escape, in the end having to call the cops to come and rescue them (and, of course, arrested them on the spot).

  99. I thought this was a funny story about not paying attention while eating a muffin. So I showed it to my wife. And she told me that it was not such a story and I should reading the New York Times so I would know what you are talking about, as from the clue in the title of this post.

    I am glad to have married someone who can explain your posts to me.

    I finally catch up with the story… 🙂
    OK Melissa, I think this is your best story so far (from what I’ve read). Lia is such a well developed character and I loved how the story was mainly character driven- it was great to see a character overcoming a ghost from her past and decided to let go, move on and the rain at the end, cleansing and promising a fresh it was the perfect ending.
    Well done my friend! 🙂

    It is a funny story. The caterpillar was the enemy of the yucca tree but the of history is the respect for life that shows your cousin.

  126. today my boyfriend and i got into a huge fight. it was over the craziest thing to, it was over a cat fight i had with the school tramp. Her friend was hit by my truck and now there are all these kids after him. They came to my house surprisingly, now there is a HUGE mess. Middle School never prepared you for this in high school, weird to think that when you are all grown up, your own kids will want to know your craziest stories, scared to think that this might either scare them or it could end up being the best story they ever hear. Impressions are a big deal in high school and in life, thats a big lesson.

    I finally saw No Country For Old Men this weekend. a must-see. There is so much tension in the movie, created through flawless editing and storytelling. realizations (questions left unanswered) about evil and its motivations and sources are unnerving. Everything about this movie was great.Also recommending is “Once” – the best story about love seen put on film in a long time. The simplicity of it is its greatest strength – plus great music.
