Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Making great first lines with the crap that falls around you.

Atomic Nerds, if you haven't gone to see, is an irreverent couple of science geeks (Labrat and Stingray) out west. They've got take on things worth checking out, including my favorite yearly contest, the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. The goal of the contest is to produce the best first line for the worst book never written. They break it up into categories. For the reader with a sense of humor, it's deliciously terrible. And even if you have a short attention span, it's worth the trip. Seriously-- they're literally one-liner jokes.

Well, our friend Stingray has found that this is the best way to make sense of really stupid search strings that refer people to their site.

Much obliged for the linky love, Matt, but you missed us on the map by a few miles. Last I checked, Los Alamos wasn't in California, and we've got a bit of a different flavor of science around here. ;)

...although LabRat did just remind me that for some reason our IP addys usually show up from oddball places that, broadly, Aren't Here. Normally it's Phoenix, but not always.
