Let's see how creative we can be. Let's write a story one sentence at a time per post to see what direction it takes us.
The topic can go anywhere, but please let's keep it clean : )
I will start it:
The day started out like any other.
When the postman asked me to sign for the dummy I fumbled inside my jacket for a pen and to my astonishment the shop dummy held out a pen to me.
and found to be amazed at a 'android' temporary offer for review so I ...
dropped down and gave the android ten because I believed that it was really my drill sergeant from the army.
The android quickly pocketed the ten, looking at me in complete disbelief, scratched himself and with a metallic voice said ;"you cool , dude"
The android said, "I am here for review. What do you need me to do?"
I led the android into the living room and told it to go ahead and start the review without me while I made myself a nice cup of tea.
It began to move rather slowly and its speech slurred, sadly I could see its power was quickly leaving and I knew I needed to plug it into some sort of power source.
Once plugged in, it finally followed my instructions and made its way to the living room, only to snag on the charger lead, which just wasn't long enough to reach from the garage
It was then I knew I had to make a rash decision or forever find this android shut down with in the confines of my living room so I picked up his massive metal body, placing him in my car, as I knew I had to get to Best Buy before it closed, becasue they know everything about high tech things such as this.
I hastily packed some spare underwear into a bag, knowing that the nearest 'Best Buy' must be a very, very long drive from London.
... and also some swimming gear because the Atlantic ocean is VERY wet.
As I waved goodbye to the good captain and his crew, the android and I were rudely wrestled to the ground by several burly US immigration officers
I was greatefuI for the perfect timing and as I had never been to Stanton Island before, I was looking forward to this new experience in life.
This innocent notion didn't wash on the immigration officers though, as they demanded to see our passports and visas
The excitement of being on Stanton Island quickly left as I tried to explain my situation to the immigration officers, who only giggled and made fun of my me and tin man.
just as I feared the worst, the android was able to secretly print the documentation from inside it's processor and hand the paperwork to the immigration officers, with skeptical looks we were allowed to go
We were going to need money, I realised, as I wondered what else my new friend could print...
As I took a quick look at the android, I noticed that his steel body was starting to rust in places and I got worried, as I was growing fond of the stupid thing.
It took a whole minute or so for the processor inside him to come up with an answer, but after coughing out a couple of badly rusted nuts and bolts he said : "Yes, but hurry, I'm not feeling so great, make sure there is enough paper in my printer, it will contol the amount you can get out of me, so don't be shy!".
Just as we were about to set off I suddenly remembered that all we had come to the US for was to find help with getting the Android's power supply fixed, but he seems to have been doing pretty well with no real explanation as to why...
being his father, and his mother of course being
Suddenly the android started yelling :"Come on, you morons, you're sticking the wrong size batteries in me, don't they teach you anything on this planet of yours?"
Just to be clear, the intent for this forum thread was not to write erotica. It was to be a fun and light-hearted writing exercise to bring hubbers together.
I'm not sure HubPages stance on the erotica writing genre, but I do not want to be flagged for adult content, so please keep that in mind as we write this story.
On that note, let's keep the fun going. Thanks!
The android repeated slowly :"E-ro-ti-ca", then a red lit message appeared on his chest :" unknown word, please program into built-in vocabulary "
Now that we knew the android's power supply was based on batteries, we decided to find the nearest Radio Shack and stock up.
But the android was troubled with the picture that had been handed to him, he couldn't think of nothing else but the fine shape and curves of the female android he just saw : "Forget about Radio Shack, I will regenerate myself or get that beautiful friend here to power me from her own supply".
Since the android continues to display inappropriate thoughts and behaviors, I decided to take him to the scrap yard and reduce him to a 1 cubic foot square of scrap metal, only receiving $20 for my troubles.
Suddenly, I couldn't believe the android wasn't around anymore, and I was thinking of any possible way to bring him back, I mean, I was getting to really like the guy, despite our differences
but hey, this was the first time I'd ever had $20 and I intended to enjoy it...
So, I looked on Ebay and found a second hand android, looking just like the one I got destroyed, for 19.95 and free shipping
fast forward 3 days and once again I found myself gazing into his freshly charged dreamy quartz eyes
I was still financially ahead of the game by .05 and had my android back, the sky was the limit again and I was certainly going to take advantage of that.
In this crazy dystopian future where $19.95 could buy you a multi-purpose military android, 5 cents should easily buy me something to rejuvenate this floundering storyline..
Also maybe a subtext, maybe I could be a luchador from parts unknown and my android can be my tag team partner and we could fight for the downtrodden and the oppressed.
So, I purchased for that amount a piece of gum for the android, as his breath could easily be confused with the one of an overflowing toilet bowl, and suddenly, I was broke again so it was time for my man made friend here to hit his own creative button and make me some serious dough..
so we sneaked around the back of a restaurant kitchen, and nicked some flour yeast and warm water and started making our bread.
And there we had it : an exclusive new idea for a business, so we started manufacturing android shaped pastries and breads
After the big win, Luchador insisted that everyone stop by his place for gin and tonics, and with his head hung low, sheepishly asked who could stop by the store to buy a bottle on the way.
but the very thought of waiting for the Americans concerned the luchador because he subconsciously could sense the presence of David Bowie reminding him that he should be afraid of Americans.
As the strains of "Change" ran through his mind, Luchador reminded himself that it was only "Young Americans" that he was warned of, but he was sick of waiting for the old Americans anyway, so he headed to a better spot to panhandle up some change for a bottle of Mad Dog.
Darling, that man just conned you off a thousand dollars, but then again what do i know about investing, I'm just a housewife, right?
We got the Mad Dog, but before I could take a swig, the luchador snatched the bottle from my hand and chugged the whole thing. Then he looked at me with a crazed look in his eye, leapt to his feet and began to sing....
"If you're happy and you know it clap your hands..."
As our fallen hero's lifeless body lied on the ground his rusted Android friend look down upon him and for the first time of his life he felt an uncomfortable sense of humanity.
Then from out of nowhere came a huge Black cloud, with a smiley face. It had a cool green looking thing that it dropped from 30,000 feet from high up above the sky, and as it fell so rapidly to the ground it struck! "I am the new Adroid that been dropped from the heaven!"
The old rusty android said, "Holy moley, a newbie just dropped out of the sky and the wanna-be is after my freaking job!"

Once upon a time there lived a wise old man named Yaris who lived in the very deepest, darkest place in the woods, on a hillside in a place known as Whispering Winds Valley.

I've been on here for 9 months and followed all the advice from the learning centre, forums and hubs from the best hubbers. I earned the first $24.00 in the first month and I'm only $1.00 ahead for the next eight. What am I doing wrong? All help will be greatfully received.

My traffic's reached an all time HIGH. I'm pretty sure it's from the new mobile algorithm update which has just been released today. I got a boost by 300 views today, and my best hub has seen a 60% increase in traffic!What about you? Are you celebrating?

Hi everyone, I was just curious and wanted to know how many hubbers actually visit the forums. If you see this post - leave a reply just once no matter how big it is but don't post a second reply as it will be easy to count then.

I thought it might be useful to leverage the collective knowledge of hubbers with English and Journalism degrees (or unspoken expertise)- for those obscure questions regarding grammar and style that are difficult to find answers to on Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.- in one post. (EDIT_UPDATE: Or, for...
