I know a lot about Urban Legends, or rather which have a ring of truth to them and which are falsehoods. Yes, I am talking about the ever popular show, Mythbusters. They make science fun by blowing stuff up and creating a big mess while getting to the bottom of some of the biggest and most popular myths around.

Watching the show "Face Off" on the Sci Fi, or rather "SyFy", channel. Its one of those competition shows where the contestants are special effects make-up artists competing to win money and a chance to work on a big budget movie or something, I don't really remember. Anyways, I am liking it. Its much more to my taste than other competition shows.

IKR, I would love to blow things up for a living. Of course, its for scientific purposes, and not just a blatant desire to see things explode into a million pieces.

*whistles innocently*

Test in urban legends tomorrow lol . Folklore is such an interesting degree (again, basically useless- which I why I am doing double minor in Folklore AND English)

Ahh, sounds super interesting actually!

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Kinetic, Sometimes I feel like it ends up that way. :D

EDIT: Crabby, I'd so love to be a Mythbuster (they're so close, right in San Francisco!) but I suck at math and science. No one would trust me with explosives.

Haven't watched the Sci-Fi Channel since they unjustly cancelled Farscape.

Kinetic and Sakura, is there some sort of inside joke about writing that I am missing here? Or perhaps its just one of those accursed "Blonde" moments I have been known to have (being half blonde though, I only have them half of the time; I am strawberry-blonde so I am half redhead and half blonde ).

Bwahaha! I mentioned earlier that I'd have better success at writing if it didn't take me a year between chapters. I tend to forget what I'm doing when it takes that long. But I get distracted easily and go off and start another story and well . . . yeah.

Oh. Now I get it. The ending of one chapter doesn't have a very continuous flow into the following chapter, if any flow at all.

Sometimes I am so dense. >_<

Hahah, that's okay.

This one novel. Started it in 2002. Still only up to Chapter Twelve. *sigh* I like this one, too. When I can remember what it's about. *tries to make sense of scribbled hand-written notes*

Who's your fav Mythbuster?
