UnNews talk:Nerds take to the skies

I wrote an UnNews story on a redshirt from Star Trek, rewrote Dune...now a Star Wars tale. I'm such a nerd. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:09, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

I have two things to say. 1) I'm to the point now where I can spot a Modus article at two hundred paces. (That's a compliment, I think.) 2) How come the date is perpetually in the future?
Actually, three things. 3) I wanna nom this. When'll it be ready? Or should I just look back at number 2 and see if it answers number 3? User:Wehpudicabok/sig 04:18, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
To answer your questions:
1) Thanks. I'm the same way. I just look at a page and I'm all, "Whoah. I wrote this."
2) The date is from the future because I'm from the future. I release a maximum of one UnNews story per week to prevent me from clogging it up when the muse visits. This also gives me weeks and weeks to tweak an article to a state of delicious. Why Tuesday? Early on I wrote a story that had to appear on the day after Christmas. December 26 fell on a Tuesday last year. After that I stuck with the Tuesday rule for no good reason whatsoever.
Only on the rare occasions where I write something topical do I break this rule. Topical stories, with only a couple of exceptions, end up as my weakest ones (as they have only a day or two to tweak). This is why I try to avoid being too current.
3) While I can't see this page changing all that much between now and Tuesday, see #2.
I hope this explains what may come across at first as mad craziness. It may appear like forty minutes into every single episode of the A-Team (they're locked in a garage with only a pile of parts, a tractor, some sheetmetal, an air compressor, some big pipe, and a bunch of cabbages), but it's actually forty-eight minutes into the episode (after a montage, the mess turns out to be an armoured tractor with a cabbage cannon).

Of course.  :-) User:Wehpudicabok/sig 04:50, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
