Creepy Story

No shit, there I was...

I once had a Magic 8 Ball that never lied. It was correct 100% of the time, over scores of queries about the past, present, and future. It was the creepiest thing I have ever encountered. I slowly became afraid of the horrible thing at war in Iraq, but it had become a tradition to consult it before every mission. I wouldn’t let the children touch it after I got back home. Thank goodness it eventually bled out, so I could finally dispose of it safely.  The blue ichor permanently stained the shelf, of course.


  1. A new twist on:
    'Cassandra' - hated for being right.

    1. I have a much better understanding of that story now. Cassandra was rightfully hated. I also got out of the intelligence business for much the same reason. (It especially sucks when you keep telling people what's coming, and they do nothing about it. Again and again and again...)


I reserve the right to remove egregiously profane or abusive comments, spam, and anything else that really annoys me. Feel free to agree or disagree, but let's keep this reasonably civil.
