UW: Heaven

Heaven is the sole planet located in the first dimension. The world is home to approximately 1.2 billion Angels and approximately three hundred thousand transcended mortals.

The planet was among the last of Amen's creations at the beginning of time, and the Angelic Host took residence there in the last half of 0071. It became recognized as the "afterlife" in 0116, when the thunder lizards began killing homo sapiens.

Heaven was originally measured at just over fourteen thousand miles at its equator, making it double the size of the Third Planet in the solar system. However, after the fall of so many Angels during the Great Divide, the planet's composition has become skewed, as though the southeastern part of the planet is literally trying to tear itself free.

More than two thirds of the planet is covered by a single body of water known as the Atherean. It is this body of water that separates the two primary continents. The World Capital, Yevon, is also the largest city on the planet. The other two major capitals are Yethra and Yevah. Of these three, only Yethra resides on the Eastern continent.

Heaven boasts a gentle atmospheric composition that is seventeen percent oxygen and eighty-seven percent aethir. The stratosphere is known as the Lux Magna, which resembles a magnificent rainbow when approached. However, traveling through the Lux Magna signifies a desire to leave Heaven, resulting in reincarnation.

Homo Angelis, or Native Angels, are the dominant life form on the planet, although Ascended Angels and Transcended Mortals are beginning to grow in numbers. Other famous species that roam the lands are the unicorn, tengu, and fairy clans. Before Naridia was overthrown, the merpeople also boasted significant numbers, but they have since been driven to the brink of extinction.

Most of Heaven's land is lush forestry and pasture, while the major metropolises sport tall, ivory skyscrapers.

Because the high concentration of Aethir continuously replenishes Heaven's natural resources, the world exists on a forgiving barter system and has no need for currency.

America: A True Story About Hatred and Unity

I wanted fast food tonight. That was all. I found myself at Burger King to pick up my wife's order. I was a few cars deep when I spotted the Confederate flag. I surreptitiously snapped a few photos. This was going to be a very different story. When I pull out of Burger King, it turns out there's more than one. In fact, there are four trucks, each flying variations of the flag. I have to go around the front of them to avoid an accident. They're parked right in the middle of the road. As I drive around them, each person in the vehicle makes it a point to ensure I see them. I do. They see me too. When I get to McDonald's (which is in the same lot), I learn that they're not taking debit cards at the moment. Terrific. I wanted chicken nuggets and instead, I get a run-in with the new Confederacy. So I make my way back to Burger King, again appearing in full view of the trucks. I place my order, get it, pay, and pull out. Then one of the

The Long Road Home

I will end you tonight. No, wait. That's not where the story starts. The story starts two and a half years before this, when Michelle (referred to as Michelle for legal reasons because SATAN was too heavily trademarked) reached out to me by Facebook. She mentioned that we played the same Facebook game and she wanted to say hi. I had never, in fact, even heard of the Facebook game. But I was freshly broken out of a relationship and she was pretty with a good body so I said "Hurr, okay." Conversation ensues. She tells me we came up in the same place. We did not come up in the same place. We spent one night in San Francisco talking. But I really wanted to sleep with her. So, "Hurr, okay." Fast forward a few months. I've left Missouri for the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I've settled into the ass end of Lynnwood, a suburb of Seattle. The apartment was so bad that the landlord wrote the mold on the wall off as "crayon coloring

Wave Rocketbook Reviewed

I love writing by hand, and I love notebooks. I'll often devote entire budgets to them and when Officemax has one of their twenty-five cent sales, I'll buy them out. I often draft by hand, finding that the scene comes together more purely when it flows from a pen rather than a keyboard. So when DailyDot advertised a durable new type of notebook that you could use over and over again for the cheap price of twenty-five (thirty after shipping) US Dollars? I'm down. The Wave Rocketbook is meant to be elegant in its design and simple in its execution. The instructions come on the bag itself, and only the pen and notebook are included. The pen feels like any other, so you have to be careful not to mix it into your collection or you will end up marking your notebook with the wrong pen (like I did). The ink is erasable, which is a bonus. A place to put the pen would've been nice, but it clips easily, if not securely, into the ringed binding. The paper is thick and
