But, when that quality carbide ball touched the surface of the paper, it was not ink that came out. From a distance I heard the screams of men and the cackling of innumerable ravens. I stopped, cold and sweating profusely. I looked down at the Bic Crystal black medium ballpoint pen which I held in my hand, only to see darkness. I dashed it against the wall, recoiling in horror....

The greatest review for a Bic pen in the history of mankind, by Matthew Balousek. Read all of it

No, seriously. Read this.

Um. I also take back the thing about fandom being boring recently. Apparently, I must only say (jokingly!) of our less-than-stellar-comparisons to snark and boom, two in a day, two different fandoms, neither one of them mine (though a third, OTW, might be considered a fandom y/y?)

I'm going to go pretend to be productive now.

That spn wank was hilarious. And OTW needs it's own wank category- it's becoming wankier than Deathly Hallows ended up being! :D

God I know.

I just wish they'd meta on what OTW was actually *doing* sometimes; there are so many actual problems and possible solutions and things that need to be clarified, but you can't get to them wading through all the completely not-true or half-true stuff or the stuff that's already been addressed. It's--gah, so discouraging.

Yeah, I'm wading through a lot of that now (trying to get background as my own OTW post ferments).

There's a lot of background noise- which I have to admit I appreciate on its own wanky merits, but it makes it tough to figure out what's going on.

Very true! *snort* And it made me crave one of these Bic Crystal black medium ballpoint pens :-D

Gotta bookmark this!

This bic thing is epic. It's been going on for months (I assume you did click on the product link and read all the rest of them too? If not, doooo! starting with oldest first). There's a similar thing going on with other random household products on Amazon too - worth Googling for, as some are pretty funny.

is there NEW otw trouble or the same ole same ole? I hadn't noticed anything.

New? Not--exactly. Just an overenthusiastic supporter. It's up on fandom_wank.

I'm going to ask a stupid question, but what's OTW?

Organization of Transformative Works.

otw_news - everything about it is there. It's--a lot of things, but also going to be a multifandom archive.

Of course. *slaps self on forehead* Thanks for the reminder.
