Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    He looks like a 12 year old wearing his father’s uniform for Halloween.

    Is this book about the Andorian Saint Teresa? Because that might make sense.

  4. B. Chiclitz Says:

    That guy in the back is actually a young Neil Young

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Given the tilt of her head, the title should be Foreshortening or Bad Foreshortening.

    …something … something … Snapchat … something …

    The guy in the background looks like he’s had to impatiently deal with this woman’s rather odd reactions to seeing pictures of herself before. And he’s rather done with it.

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    He’s upset that she always crops him out of her selfies.

    Frankly, I find myself liking this, mossy ruins, Bruce Lee lookalike, glowing phablet and all. What is wrong with me…

    Mom, I know how hard it is to sell your collectibles, but we really need to fix this hole in the floor.

    @Tor M— 😉

    Is the guy in back holding a rusty pipe as a weapon?

    The white eyelashes definitely look better in the large size version of the picture: in the smallest resolution, it looks like she’s wearing some sort of glasses or has Muppet eyes. Or white circles, reverse-raccoon style.

    I’m a bit puzzled by what the red glow around the rockets is: it seems to be in front of them as well, so it’s not the dawn coming up like thunder, and given their highly decrepit condition, it seems unlikely that they’re warming up the engines. Perhaps there some sort of party going on under the rockets? Bonfires, jugglers, spit roasted giant bugs, that sort of thing?

    The picture is actually of her nemesis.

    @Tor: perfect.

    @Bruce: great link.

  14. Ray P Says:

    If it were BAEN, the title would be Forebummer.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Ray P: and she wouldn’t have her cleavage covered by her selfie.
