I hope I'm putting this in the right place...
I'm not sure where exactly I found this. It might have been just when I was looking random stuff up on google, but if someone has posted this already, I'm sorry.

Anyway, even though I had to stop and reread a couple sentences every so often, it really helped me. (Well, not really, because I don't write those kinds of stories. But it would if I did.) I hope it helps.

I probably laughed out most of my intestines. YOu get a thanks point from me, Princess. Not only was this really good help for sci-fi writers like me, it was also a brilliant source of comic relief. Needless to say, I stayed up till two trying to read them all!

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.

^ Agree with all of the above. That was funny and has potential to make a seriously evil villain.
