Ok, if we can get at least 3 other people to play, I'm launching a THIRTY minute hub challenge at 8:40 my time.
Rules: Write a hub in thirty minutes. Hit publish. (edit later)
Other rules: None
OMG I'm finally here when you're doing one of these...oh sh*t...What am I going to write about...How long from now are you planning on starting? I think I want in...but I gotta make a drink first...LOL
umm...maybe you should have a rule where you list the number of words or something. i mean in theory ANYONE here could just easily write a couple of paragraphs and slap on a bunch of pics on the hub, then be done in less than five minutes. lol no offense, but just trying to help
I'm down, lol this is a great idea. Gotta think of something to write about...
All right. You got me...and I got a screwdriver and a subject.
ETA: That would be the drink, not the tool. lol
Cagsil is annoying me right now. I know he is lurking around here.
What's wrong Shadesbreath?
There is plenty of time. Are you in a rush to go nowhere?
Sure, I'll play along. Not sure I can do it with my topic, but I'll try.
I'll even give you an extra five minutes to collect your thoughts.
Game starts at quarter till, my clock. That's EIGHT minutes from now.
((( hugs Cags))) in a not presumptuous way. Well, mostly.
Yep, still here I think I got my topic... not sure if 30 minutes will do it though, lol. But I can fix it up later, so no biggie.
Yep. Get the heart of it.
Ok, quick sum up:
Get it down.
Hit enter before time is up (9:15 on my clock, Pacific time)
Paste your link in here
Starting in THREEEEEE minutes
Oooh, this is exciting...like revving my writing engine...vroom....
Okay everyone, they are too busy to reply to any post now so lets dog them out! Yes, that's right, 30 minutes of guaranteed no responses to any mud you care to sling about these folks.
Yes I know, all good folks but when has that ever stopped anyone from causing good folks strife. Listen to me, I am a serpent and I know these things. Trust me!
you're too funny! don't have any mud to toss around....
http://hubpages.com/hub/My-Top-10-Disne … Films?done
Might be a bit late lol
Also I didn't finish, it's only a rough work. Ah well, worth a shot
Dude, this is a great hub, what are you talking about? A tiny bit of polish and some Amazon capsules and you're going to be buying beer after the next 3o minute challenge.
Plus, you have great taste in movies. Seriously, nice work.
Yeah, I thought it was a great one, too! I loved his picks!
MrPopo, you should be proud of this Hub!
Lol, thanks Shades and TGS I hope that isn't the beer talking though
Although if it happens that I'm able to buy beer, what would you recommend? I think I've only had Molson Canadian, or well it's the only one I remember drinking.
Not sure if that's a good thing XD
I'm not much of a beer drinker, myself...I prefer vodka, frankly. However, there IS a wheat ale that I love called Blue Moon; try it out if you get a chance.
And once again, great job on the hub!
Ah, great job on yours too TGS!
Wow I just realized I didn't comment on yours! I could have sworn I did. My bad check it now.
I will try that Blue Moon, I think I've heard of it before. The name alone works for me, haha. I actually prefer beer to vodka though, I just haven't tried many of them LOL. Vodka's not bad, though.
One thing I will be staying away from is spiced rum though... memories of a poor Halloween come to mind. The irony is that I was dressed like a pirate.
Hahaha...I have fond memories of spiced rum. Once upon a time when I was in college, it was a tradition in our drama club that after your first show one was initiated by allowing another, elder, member of the club pour Cap'n Morgan's shots down your throat....Ah...college days. LOL
No worries on the comment! Although I do look forward to anything you might have to say!
Hahahaha, that sounds awesome
I'm still in college, so maybe I'll go through some of these traditions as well, lol. Should be in for a treat
Well, if you do, make sure you drink water IN BETWEEN the drinks! That way, you won't get dehydrated and you'll offset most of the worst hangover symptoms.
And don't do it...you know, regularly.
Damn. I'm a bad influence.
Or, if you don't mind risking blowing out your stomach lining or liver, you can skip drinking water between drinks and just pound about 40 ounces before bed with 600 or 800mgs of Advil. You'll feel fine in the morning if it doesn't burn in a hole in your intestines, which I guess it does on some people. Works fine for me though.
I think goldenpath is working on marketing a cereal that will come with a colostomy, Shades, check it out on week two of my Wacky Advice hubs...if that's how you're combating hangovers, you might need to get on board with him!!
Chicks dig guys with colostomies. Lets them fall into their Florence Nightingale persona.
Yes, unfortunately, many of us women are indeed cursed with a Florence Nightingale persona. It gets us into so much trouble.
I'm attempting to kill the bitch. I'm tired of her interference in my personal life.
So your internal Lizzy Borden is at odds with your internal Florence Nightingale. Interesting. What does your internal Ann Landers have to say about that? And what is your internal Megan Fox wearing during all of this?
Maybe this image can help your imagination?
Just trying to be helpful.
Was it the "thumbs up" button...or the "something else up button"?
Just the thumbs up, k@ri will kill me even for that. If you need me, I'll be hiding in my secret underground lair...
Goodness...can't blame a guy for looking as long as he comes to the right home to roost, now...C'mon.
HEY! Where did you get that picture of me?! How dare you spy on me when I'm hanging out in just my lingerie!
But, you're just so HOT! It's a force of habit to snatch pictures, as much as possible. I love my collection of pictures of all sorts of women.
There is no reason for anyone to be this hawt. It's like looking at the sun; starts to hurt after a while.
My internal Lizzy is having a field day today. Ms. Landers is passed out on the couch with too much vodka, and the Fox in me is a die-hard nudist. But be careful, because there's also some chick in here going by the name of Circe...
Hey! We don't need any more pigs, dammit!
Yes, Shades, you've stumbled across my deep, dark, barely hidden secret: I'm a little bit crazy. Okay...strike the little bit. There's a veritable Macy's Thought Parade going on in here complete with floats, announcers, flowers, and tons of garbage. LOL
http://hubpages.com/hub/how-does-equali … capitalism
Yeah, yeah, I know. A little late. And, I'm not sure if I am actually finished. But, did try to cap it off.
They're all in close enough. Good work all.
Let's go read em.
Thanks for playing too.
Gonna read all of them in order.
Damn, Cags? Are you always going to tackle deep ass subjects during these 30 minute things? I write little consumer rants about Lowe's or a movie review... you take on capitalism, socio-cultural imperatives, motivation, human nature... and other big words.
This is supposed to be light stuff. You'll make us look simple if you don't at least sometimes write something silly. Sheesh. Turn down your brain!
If I know anything about Cags at all...it's that his brain is always on full throttle...at least that's what it looks like
*models her tin foil lingerie...* It's kinda crinkly...but I like it! What do you think??
Oh no you don't! Silliness and light stuff is MY area of expertise! You stay right where you are Cags...I like you and your big words just fine.
Have no worry. I published one hub with relation to comedic type stuff. If you are interested- I tackles some questions, meaningless questions some posted to a forum. The questions are nonsensical but in the end it was funny. Even the comments on it were too.
It was called interesting-questions-in-need-of-answering-set-a-task
Calling for the mythic Jesus are we now Shades?
Turn down my brain? To what level do you suppose I do that, unconscious? Like 4 billion others?
I like tackling larger issues, it requires a little more focus than I use normally.
WOW! I am so impressed with all you guys! You've created a collection of great hubs this evening, and you should all be proud of yourselves! I've left more in-depth comments for all of you.
I am SO glad I was around to participate in this tonight!
Awwwwww...I missed it by this much! Seriously! What a great idea...maybe next time.
I did that for, like, three weeks in a row...BUT I FINALLY GOT ONE IN! Woot! You'll catch one! And we look forward to it
Spider, yours is awesome... and you couldn't have picked a better book. I confess to being prejudiced in your favor when I saw your topic, but you wrote an actual good hub on it too, so.. hopefullly you make bank. Will make some sort of Karma balance to have a great real writer like you get paid for a commercial piece because it was just, well, true.
Off to read Mrpopo's.
Awww, Thank you, Shades! I'm really glad you enjoyed it, and I LOVED this challenge!
Like I said, I'm going to have to watch the 13th Warrior, not only does it have Mr. Banderas *drool* but you did a great job selling it, too!
Maybe we'll BOTH make some bank!
You lost me...what does Jesus have to do with this?
Well, see, Jesus went away for a long time (some say he died and then came back), but others say that even after that, he went away again, and then, someday, he is supposed to come back. People really like him. Very popular.
Then there is you, on HubPages. I'll leave it to you to weed out the magnifications that don't work in the metaphor, factor in some enthusiam on my part, divided by 11 beers, and, well, crap, I lost the math I was doing...
... uh, what?
In my current frame of mind...I really would like to be able to turn one cheetoh into an entire bag...but unfortunately I can't. Same goes for that whole water into....hmm...
Then again, I'm not really a wine drinker and I do have a really nice coffee maker so I guess technically I can turn water into coffee.
Ohhhhh wait...I get it. You thought I'd been nailed right?
LOL second coming, Shades is right!
Welcome back to the forums Spryte, we missed you dearly
Misha!! How good to see you as well *big hugs*!
I'm just slightly miffed at missing such a great game though. Is there a schedule or is it always subject to whim?
*big hugs back*
You never know when Shades feels like that - unless you count his drinks. I think 11th does trigger the rush - but with tin foil lingerie it may happen on 9th.
I was hoping...
Or.. wait, are we mixing metaphors now?
Well, this was fun. Thanks everyone for playing.
Spryte... come back and write stuff. This place needs you really bad. Reilly actually kicked down a hub the other day. Speaking of resurections.
Summer is here. Be fun to ... etc.
Anyway, I'm several beers in, so I'm going to go wake up my wife and see if she's in the mood.
Good night, y'all.
LOL Shades, good luck! And good night.
Shades - I'll try to sneak in here ,more often and write...but not being able to chain smoke while I write anymore is still difficult. Maybe if I write really, really...really...short hubs.
Spoke via email with Chris today...he didn't mention any damn hub!!! I'll have to go and check it out.
And yeah..it is summer I catch your drift....missed you too!
TAKES ME 30MIN TO GET ALL KNOTS OUTS OF MY HAIR EACH MORNING....
Oh my goodness well done guys
I have to say, you guys type incredibly fast lol.
Great job with all of your Hubs! I look forward to whenever there's another 30 minute challenge, this was fun.
Well, you did a wonderful job. The whole point was simply to publish. All the editing or adding could be done after. Getting the meat of the hub and hopefully, most of what you want to convey to your reader/viewer is placed.
And, by the looks of your hub. You did a great job for your first time doing.
Thanks Cagsil great job on yours too. I'm not nearly enough informed on Capitalism and the politics going on in America, but your Hub did bring to light a bunch of things I wasn't even aware of, so for that, thanks
You have a good night Mrpopo.
@Spider, you too.
Sleep well and be safe everyone. It was fun and a pleasure.
Oh my you guys are corrupting me with all this colostomy, adult talk
Umm.....can I point out that we have four people chatting in a forum thread designed for INSTANT Hub Challenge...
So, are we playing or what?
Otherwise, we are all guilty of hi-jacking this thread.
I am going to hijack the Hijackers.
Hi there, Ohma! I'll have to hop out for a little while...but didn't want to leave without returning your salutations! I hope you are well.
Guilty as charged. Not really up for playing today though, or at least right now...Ought to go take a nap, but am killing time before I have to do something for my disabled fellow's dinner. *sigh*
Good and you? oh wait I saw your earlier post I know how you are today
Considering the day I have had, anything still working is a bonus!!
Where are you?
You up for it????
Hah, Cags! Dammit.
I'm tempted. See how many we can get. If we can get three or four more pretty quick might be worth it. I have to get up early though, let's see who you can drum up. Has to be your energy tonight to make it happen. See who's out there. (start a new thread... you won't drum up peeps with a used thread.)

Ok, so I have this idea. It may flop horribly, but that's fine too, I'm bored so, whatever. So, I've seen the 30 day challenge before, 1 hub every day for 30 days. I have not the attention span for that. However, as a drinker, a bored person, and a fast typist, I might go for 1...

Ok, so a few weeks ago I was drinking on a Friday night (like every other night) and decided to have a 30 minute hub writing contest. U know, they have 30 hubs in 30 days, so I figured why not 1 hub in 30 minutes?We got like four hubs done, and another that didn't make it in a half hour, but...

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...

Take one of your old hubs, update it with new content, better photos, improved titles and add some additional modules (make it a stellar hub effectively) and then post it here for critique!
