UW: Timeline

0000: The recognized beginning of time. Over a ten day period, Amen creates the known universe, including the four dimensions.

0070: Twin sister and brother Yin and Yang are granted near-infinite power and guardianship over the Universe. Amen enters a million-year slumber, after which time he would awake and pass judgment on the Universe. 

0110: Yin and Yang begin an experiment of free will on the third planet from the sun in the Solar System.  Male and Female mortals are created and sent to live in a garden paradise, safe from the Thunder Lizards and their King, the tyrannical Ra'kash. During this time, several cro-magnum begin to evolve into forms similar to those of the Male and Female.

0115: The Female disappears. To maintain the balance, Yang creates a suitable mate for the male, Adam. This woman is named Eve.

0130: Adam and Eve defeat Ra'kash, bringing an end to the reign of the thunder lizards. Yin and Yang respond to mortal prayers and send a meteor shower that drive the remaining thunder lizards to extinction. This marks the beginning of the Age of Man.

0400: Yang sacrifices himself as a mortal to bring about peace between Eastern and Western Pangaea. This brings about an end to conflict that has raged for two centuries and unites the human race. 
Yang returns to Heaven to find his vengeful sister ready to declare war on the Third Planet, a host of Angels behind her. Yang refuses to let her advance on the grounds that humans must not be conquered, and free to choose their own fate. Yin relents, but dissension over how the universe is to be ruled brews in Heaven.

0415: Yin and Yang agree to meet in the frozen north to engage in one-on-one combat. The winner will determine the course of the universe. Before the fight can commence, a splinter faction attempts to assassinate Yang. Although she vehemently denies any knowledge of the plot, Yin is arrested for treason and attempted murder.

0416: Yin is found guilty of all charges by a tribunal that includes Heaven's highest powers, including Yang, Odin, and Zeus. Yin is sentenced to eternal exile in the volcanic, uncharted southern lands for her crimes. In a show of support, more than one hundred thousand Angels leave Heaven and join Yin in exile.

0416-0421: The Great Divide. Yang commissions a subversive unit dubbed the Heimdall to ferret out those suspected of aiding Yin. This controversial unit exiles almost fifty thousand Angels and ultimately results in the partial destruction of Asgard. Heimdall himself is driven mad by All-Knowledge and confined by Odin. The Heimdall is quietly dispersed at the end of this period.

0523: On the Third Planet, Eden is burned to the ground by Promethean Fire. Adam and Eve are among the homo sapiens that perish in the fire. The murder remains unsolved.

0524:The Battle of Naridia. Angels and merpeople join forces to wage war against Vepar, a member of the Fallen Angels who first seduced and then overthrew Poseidon, the king of merpeople and ruler of Naridia. The battle is bloody, with scores of Angels and Merpeople wounded or killed. The battle is won, the murpeople are routed, and Vepar is killed.

0525: Red Morning. Atherean Defenders. This siege is the official first conflict between Heaven and the Southern Lands.

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

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

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
