Best That You Can Do

People visit Luna City all the time.

I arrived, did my business.  Then took the shuttle headed back to New York.

The shuttle dematerialized into tachyons, and was shot at the Earth.

The End of the World, As We Know It, part 2

This is another sequel to an early story of mine from back in july 2009:

The day after Google went down, civilization collapsed.  Even people who’d never heard of Google were affected.

Information stopped flowing.

People lost things and got lost themselves.

Finding things by yourself was just too big a chore.

In the end, people only needed to learn to find one thing:

Themselves.

Postcards from Hell I

Hi Mom,

I’m having a lot of fun on my trip.  The weather’s been uniformly hot, and the people here are lots of fun.

Everybody’s who’s anybody is here.

Don’t worry about me, I’m wearing clean underwear, and I’m brushing my teeth after every meal.

Hell is fun!

Your Son

Racism

“I had to fire half my staff.”

“You only had four employees!”

“So?  I still had to fire two people.”

“Why?”

“When my best floor technician, Harry White, left, I hired two asian techs to replace him.”

“But, didn’t you just fire two asians?”

“Two Wongs don’t make a White.”
