Six word stories
The tradition of six word stories reportedly goes back to Hemingway who was challenged to write an emotionally engaging story with a beginning, middle and end in only six words. His famous text is "For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn."

A thread popped up on Facebook seeking original six word science fiction stories. I thought I'd open up the opportunity for posters here to hammer out a few.

My contributions included:
- Immortality beckoned. Now we cannot die.
- Insanity brought them and sent them back.
- Arrogance undone by bloody first contact.

and my atheist epic: Space. Adrift. Saved by dying.

What do you say? Can you write a story in six words or less?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Made drinks. Got drunk. Fell down.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Was born. Now have to live.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin.
