Cat of Many Deaths

To begin this post, I might explain that there's a game called 'Untold Tales', based on the 'Warriors' series by Erin Hunter. In the game, you can play as a Clan cat, a rogue, or become a kittypet.
That being said, it's story time. Recently, I had a dream in which I was playing this game. Along with hunting about a billion mice at one point, I got into a fight with some enemy cats. They proved too strong for me, and I had to flee. They chased me across two or three squares of the map (which they wouldn't do in the actual game) before I finally lost them. From there, I tried to get a safe place where no enemies would appear. I planned to wait for nightfall there, when I could sleep and thus regain some of my health.

Things We Never Accomplish

Throughout our lives, we come across things that make us think, "That's so awesome, I'd like to do that." But how often do we actually go through with these things? Today, I've decided to explore some of those things we say we're going to do, but often don't. (And no, I don't mean the load of laundry I haven't folded and put away yet. We're pretending that doesn't exist.)

Dangers of 'Hot' Food

One day during a sermon at my old church, the pastor told a rather amusing story. When he first came to the United States as an exchange student and was learning English, one day there was an event at which tacos were being served.

Naturally, he had to try these, and was putting lots of sauce on his tacos. The others kept warning him, "It's hot, it's hot," but he dismissed the warnings, thinking they meant high-temperature, not spice.
He didn't elaborate much on the outcome, but I can imagine he found out the truth quickly when he took a bite. I have a cartoonish mental image of him breathing fire, eyes bugging out.

The Problem With Dystopian Fiction

I've read a few books or book series that involve a dystopian society. It occurred to me one day that of these books, I've pretty much been dissatisfied with every one. Sure, sometimes they can be really interesting, but at the end of the story, I'm not happy.
After thinking about this awhile, I finally came to the reasons why dystopian fiction stories so often fail to impress me. This blog post will be describing a few well-known stories, so beware of spoilers ahead.
