[Error: unknown template qotd]I've been running for almost 19 years. I'm not going to Carousel, and damned if the Sandmen are going to catch me.

Someone who is clean, witty, good sense of humour, tolerant, thoughtful, and who doesn't start a conversation with "Let's fuck" or similar crudity.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Normally? Judge Dredd.

But right now, in the thick of the Day of Chaos storyline? Maybe not so much.

I don't. People like me never take a holiday, because our Duty never ends.

"Learn hypnosis. Soon as possible. It's easy. Here's a book. No, it hasn't been written. You haven't written it yet.

"Also, fuck more once you're legal, smoke less, get comfy going naked and - hey, why are you running towards those coppers? Oh, shit ..."

[Error: unknown template qotd]I feel inspired to write erotica again, based on the overwhelmingly positive surge in page views in my Hypnotic Erotic blog based on the excerpts of existing erotica I've posted there.

Please don't misunderstand me when I tell you I shan't post pictures. Sorry to disappoint you.

[Error: unknown template qotd]My comfy chair back home, under the window, with the view out. I read old books there too.

Other people enjoy comfort eating. I enjoy comfort reading, when life hands me disappointments. I do a lot of comfort reading. I haven't put on that much weight on my body, but my head resembles the Mekon.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I had a massive Time/Life Periodic Table of the Elements, same as the one in the chem lab in school. The magazine sent it to me gratis.

Now I want another big Periodic Elements poster for the bedroom of my flat, and a big world map for the living room wall.

If you hate something, it's the same as loving it - a love tinged with aversion, certainly, but nonetheless love. Hating something consumes the soul as much as love for the thing does.

No, far worse than love or hate is true hatred - utter indifference.

I am indifferent to this day.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Tories. Christianity and other mainstream religions. Unquestioning acceptance of nonsense. Uncritical thinking in the media, politics etc.

The media. Politics. Economics. I hold them in as much contempt as organised religion.

1. Bankers getting away with huge bonuses; virtually robbing their own banks.

2. People insisting on the death penalty, and deliberately blinding themselves to the knowledge that the "deterrent" of capital punishment is nothing of the sort - merely encouraging the escalation of crime to deadly proportions because the criminals have nothing to lose.

3. TV talent shows, and people's obsession with all this nonsense.

4. The Tea Party in the States, and their equivalent over here - mad, frothing numbnuts bigots deliberately blinding themselves to reason because they believe that their minds are too weak to apply it properly themselves. Or maybe because what other people are saying makes them feel too good to want to think.

5. Politicians who have turned their backs on space. They're like people who, fearing the world, refuse to go out of their homes and spend their remaining days conserving what little resources they have in the house, knowing that when the resources run out, they will die.

6. Societies which, in general, worship the insane and the sociopathic.

7. Christina Hendricks' boobs becoming more famous than she is.

8. Overpaid professional athletes.

That'll do for me.

Oh, most emphatically a vampire - preferably of the Vampire: the Requiem sort. If I could choose my Clan and Covenant, it'd be Mekhet and Ordo Dracul respectively. I'd go for Obfuscate and Auspex, and reach beyond my Clan to learn a bit of Protean, Nightmare, Resilience and Dominate. Possibly Animalism. No more than about the second dot in each. Maybe the third dot in Dominate, to muck about with my victims' memories.

Otherwise, yeah, yer modern Western vampire type would do me nicely, especially if it came with mesmeric eyes as part of the package.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Imagine if I could go anywhere, either by some power such as flight or super speed, or through teleportation. I often imagine myself with the power of teleportation.

I would hide my power. Not for the huge tactical advantage that the power would give me, but rather to keep the people of the world from wanting to take me to some lab somewhere and dissecting me to find out what makes that power tick, and whether they could give that power to their soldiers and police forces to use against the civilians of their countries - most especially this country.

Alfred Bester, in "The Stars, My Destination" accurately described the consequences of one superpower, teleportation or Jaunting, becoming commonplace. Imagine if I could teleport, and even to teach other people how to do the same. what would the transport and oil cartels of the world do to stop me from trying to teach the world to teleport?

What armies of assassins would they send after me and mine, to stop me teaching the people of the world how to come and go as they please, to visit any country they want without having to worry about customs (Ooh, smuggling contraband from the factory direct to the distributor), to do without air fares, rail fares, cars, oil, petrol, car taxes, MOT, insurance?

What armies could I end up raising, that could just Jaunt into Tripoli, Myanmar, Beijing, Tokyo, the West Wing of the White House, Number 10 Downing Street or the Kremlin, make mincemeat of whomsoever we see when we arrive, and then Jaunt back out again before the security knows we were ever there?

What locked bedroom doors could keep out the young lovers of the world? Indeed, horrifyingly, what locked doors (or distance) could keep a stalked woman or child from his or her abuser if that abuser could Jaunt?

So yes ... I'd keep it a secret.

Though clearly people would still end up getting the crap scared out of them by my seeming ubiquity. Teleportation. The ultimate stalker's trick.

[Error: unknown template qotd]The power to always have enough money in my pocket to pay for whatever is in front of me, no matter how small or large, no matter what that purchase is - bus fare to town, coffee and croissant breakfast in a cafe, council tax bill, water or electricity bill, DVD, new laptop. Anything, as long as it was for something I'm buying ostensibly for myself - though nothing says I can't just buy something and immediately hand it over to the person who wanted it.

Nothing in my pocket save lint - until I need to pay for something, and there'd suddenly be a wodge of cash sitting right there.

If I had that power to pay off bills at the snap of my fingers, I'd want for nothing.
