Neil, I am curious how you found your way to the internet. Your responses to queries here always read as though you put far too much thought into them for this crazy, click-baity place. Do you think you lost your way on a sojourn to some idyllic place where people speak without ALL-CAPS and merely resigned yourself to this, or was it a conscious choice?

neil-gaiman:

I was here when all this was fields.

I remember the first few bulletin boards springing up, down by the pond, then there was Compuserve and Genie, they were up and they were down, and then there was blogs on websites, and now it’s wall to wall internet as far as the eye can see…

People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

  • Romeo:

    I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing

  • Juliet:

    I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself

  • Romeo:

    We should kiss right now at this party

  • Juliet:

    No that is a super dumb idea

  • Romeo:

    *kisses her anyway*

  • Juliet:

    That was dumb of you

  • --

  • Romeo:

    We should get married right now

  • Juliet:

    We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?

  • Romeo:

    Like tomorrow?

  • Juliet:

    Sure, fine.

  • --

  • Juliet:

    We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.

  • Romeo:

    Right.

  • Romeo:

    It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.

  • --

  • Juliet:

    Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.

  • Romeo:

    *immediately kills himself*

  • Juliet:

    For fucks sake.
