    Expose yourself, bare it all. Everything you are is there for the taking. Learn a valuable lesson, pull up the drawbridge, fill the moat with alligators, and stay safe and sane.

    Three Really Strange Dudes.

    Hurzog. That was his name. I worked as a Nurse Assistant at a Facility in northern Calfornia for a few years once. That was where I met two of the craziest people I have ever even heard of. The first was, (once again) named Hurzog. He was a short...

    Baptisms For The Dead

    5 years ago

    The Mormon practice of using a living person as proxy for baptising dead people into the Mormon church is baptisms for the dead. It was a very strange and creepy experience for me at 12 years old. From the Bishop's freaky questions to the actual dunking itself, this is my little story.

    The Battle Against Writer's Block

    This is no article on how to get over writer's block. In fact, it is a short story of sorts about losing to it. This is a little window into my mind when I would think of battling writer's block.

    Heart break. Abusive partners. We have all been in a relationship we should have bailed out of immediately. There is always that person you wish you never met.

    I Would Be Adolf Hitler.

    5 years ago

    In answering the Hubpages question asked by Angie Jardine: If you could be anyone in history, who would you be. . .and why? I chose Adolf Hitler because I would like to change the atrocities he caused such as the Holocaust and WWII, and try to make the world a better place instead.

    Best Served Cold.

    Some people do not take being humbled with humility. Some people swallow their pride and anger only to serve it back many years later, ice cold. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

    Everyone knows something which scares them. Sometimes it is something that elicits only a small stab of fear in the belly. Sometimes it is someting which terrifies them such as death.

    What happens when you die? I have been dead and seen what life should not be about. Not a story about the afterlife, but a story about life.
