Dear God, is it NaNoWriMo already? Good heavens, I better take my Ghostbusting equipment along with my silver bullets, wooden stakes, and my Aegis shield the next time I go out! Writers, dangerous creatures. Great tale, Robin. :)

"It's tough to be a god" - Poor Thor. Perhaps he'll be more careful of Loki's cat next time so he won't be sentenced to teach summer school for wannabe gods. Well done, Kelly. :)
@LupusAnthroposThis story had me giggling. What, you didn't see that? But what I really liked was it stemmed from them "playing God" and God taking care of the matter. Bwahahahaha! Great tale.

Jeff, I laughed so hard with the thought of a huge star and a tiny quantum particles arguing over who was most important in the universe, only to have a boson blow away all their delusions of grandeur. It reminded me of The Big Brag by Dr. Seuss. Nicely done..
A collection of quarks, who had decided to explore the universe as a proton, stopped one day to talk with the star Sol. As usually happens when cosmic entities of immense ego set to talking a great argument broke out about their relative importance. And here it should be noted that ego is a very special quantum phenomena: its size bears no correlation to the size of the entity that generates it; the quark collective was certainly equal to the star in that respect.
Sol felt its importance could be shown by its accomplishments. “For,” it said, “ I know of no other of my family who sustains a planet brimming with biological life.”
The quarks scoffed, guffawed and showed a great disdain for Sol’s argument. Their case came down, as it always does with quark collectives in a way most other cosmic entities found both aggravatingly predictable, and a tad unfair, to their vital role as universal building blocks. “Indeed, there is nothing without us,” they said. “We band together to make everything. You may be like a god to your puny planet home of biological life, but we are so much more.”
“In fact,” one quark said. “As far as I’m concerned, we are God.”
At that very moment however, a tiny boson popped into existence and chirped, “Sorry, that job’s taken.” And the it flew off leaving behind a spluttering star and a stammering quark collective who truly had nothing they could say to that.
Congratulations Two Time Winner Jeff, Robin, Kelly, and Lupus! Claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :)
