What happened to the bus stop thread?

    I thought this was a pretty interesting story with a unique structure - switching between first and third person in what amounted to a straight news story. But after I clicked the link to read it, i couldn't find the thread again. It seems to have disapeared even though it was posted today. So I am reposting the story.


    What do you guys think of how it is structured?

    It reminds me, and not in a wholly unpleasant way, of the kind of writing I did when I smoked a lot of weed.


    I did enjoy it, but you can only do that kind of thing once.

    no, boots deleted the original.
  4. I posted it because I liked it, but no one responded to it after 120 something reads... so I smited it.

    It was a simple premise that no doubt took a lot of effort.

    admit it, boots held a gun to your head.

    shit, even my 8-year-old has self respect, though.

    you mean He-Who-Gleefully-Wrote-About-Ass-Sex-For-A-Year-Guy, who suddenly, overnight actually, became worried about the board's dignity? Seems as though moddy's would be able to see right through that ruse.

    Wow, boots managed to throw a thread into nonsense without even posting on it. That's quite an accomplishment.
