"The Meg Statham?" The barkeep shook his head.  "He's still doing a press tour. You might convince him to head home early, for the right price."
"Money is no option," JayMack said confidently.
"I think his fee is 35 million."
"On second thought, what's your cheapest option?"
"10 dollars."
"We'll take that one!"
The barkeep pulled out a lanky, acney-faced smiling youth in a maroon sweatervest.  His metal braces glittered in the candlelight. "I present you: High School Thespian Statham!"


"Hey my shoe!"
Henry fired the footwear at the beast's uvula, and another violent shudder rocked the boat. Henry was finding it increasingly difficult to find rocks on his boat inside the mouth of a giant fish.  He eyes wandered, searching.
"Perhaps i could be of assistance..." Olfred the Officious offered.
"Could I borrow your shoe Olfred?"
Olfred crossed his arms frowning.  "To fire at the beast's uvula? It seems to be working! What about a maltov cocktail?"
Henry was aghast.  "Why would someone waste a perfectly good cocktail?"

Not here that I know of, there is a tacit agreement to keep 'violent' stuff separate and behind closed doors

Probably different views and different settings in various countries, ahah. As Bradley said, every single gym in Malaysia had at least a sandbag, and even in the gym back in Czech Republic that I used to go they had a boxing sandbag. 

Also for the question, I do muaythai, somewhat.

@S. K. Inkslinger I did a mix of Mauy Thai and boxing for a while, and Kung Fu too!

You folks remember that whole Romania business? A Romanian fantasy magazine published the first chapter in my first space opera novel, which stands on its own as a short story.

That very wonderful Romanian dude contacted me with the news that a French magazine is now considering that same story.

I'm going to stay cautiously optimistic here, but maybe, just MAYBE getting the short published in France will be the first step in getting the rest published there as well.

This is really exciting Eli!!!! and super random.  How did you come across that Romanian guy again?

Maybe Paolo Freire
Proudhoun would be interesting to meet, as would Emma Goldman and Bakunin.
Maybe Rasputin. Nikola Tesla.
Man I can't pick one.  There are others but I'm worried they might kill me on sight.

haha, @Rostum some gyms do have sand bags, even if they're not boxing gyms or dojos ;)

I didn't hate it.  i was frustrated that it didn't get as far as i wanted it to, but I definitely didn't feel the same as most people do.

Oh Australia you really don't get irony do you.

This is like double or triple irony. I feel like if I keep rereading I'll find more and more layers. Like an onion, tears and all

The country that started as a prison colony deports an Aboriginal man (who's people they displaced in founding the country) to another country who's language he doesn't speak... because of a criminal conviction

From the author of Divergent and Insurgent comes...

The YA dystopian future smash hit where the future is... Annoying

I tried rewriting my agent pitch yesterday... Which is funny because it's taking me months and months to revise chapter 1 at this speed it will take me 70-105 months (9 years?) to revise the whole book and even being submitting

I've been very slowly watching the first season of The Expanse. It's solid and definitely well-made, but there's nothing about it that grips me very much. I feel that I could just leave it and not really mind.

I felt that way too. Oddly it took almost a full season to grab me. Season 2 and onward I have been straight up hooked. I don't know why it took awhile to really hook me, but it is definitely worth watching.

Yeah Ive heard that from a lot of people that it started out slow for them. You people are aliens to me. I found it riveting from the very beginning to the point where I felt it was the best show on television at the beginning of this last season. Then they did something that pissed me off and I completely stopped watching.

Randomly, with as little logic and as much meandering as possible

Good job everybody! You kept me up late last night reading way past my bedtime.

@Slaykomimi I think it's because you all are a talented bunch of writers (and our fickle Muse decided to show herself slowly but surely) :)
