I am a Science Fiction author and lover of most things with 'star' in the title.

I love writing, reading, and movies. I've always dreamed of writing novels. My dream is to travel this great wet dust ball meeting those with an equal passion for reading and writing stories.

I also grew up at the arcade. (What eighties kid didn't?) I grew a fondness for video games. My favorite genres include racing and Scifi games.

I do like to get out of the house on occasion. Sometimes, it clears the clutter living produces. Outdoorsy stuff I like camping, walking on the beach, and most of all stargazing. I also enjoy the rain, sunsets, and sunrises.

Dogs, cats, horses, etc. they seem to like me and I like them too.

What made you wake up?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
She blinded me with Science!
What are you here for?
Gohan comments on Feb 13, 2018:
I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And I'm all out of bubblegum. With all kidding aside, I'm here to find people with similar views of the world. Also, it wouldn't hurt to find someone to give my heart to.
Standards
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
No. I have too much respect for women. I have to be attracted to or develop an attraction in order to have sex with someone.
What do you know that most others don’t?
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
I don't know. I know a great many things. Others may know and are pretending to not know, you know. These days, at least in my experience, knowledge makes you an outcast. I thirst for knowledge, because I've been taught that knowing is half the battle.
MST3K If you're not familiar with Mystery Science 3000 watch a few episodes...biting, running ...
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
I think that the worst movies each year should get the MST3K treatment.
Do you feel guilty when you kill insects, rats, or any other lower animals in/around your house?
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
Every time.
Night owl
Gohan comments on Feb 12, 2018:
I hate going to bed before 2am, my day isn't properly concluded. When it's late in my little part of the world is finally quiet and I can get some work done. My best writing happens between midnight and 7am.
Anyone out there with Borderline Personality Disorder?
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
My ex-S.O. was diagnosed with BPD. I loved her so. Her BPD tore us apart. I wish her well and wish for her happiness.
About Yourself
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
I love to wear black clothes, preferably tailored suits.
If anyone was looking for the perfect Valentine's gift.
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
The perfect gift is always love.
My love or their love?
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Though unreciprocated love is hell. If you're loved by someone you have little if any love for, you can learn to love them. It may take time and a whole lot of frustration, but it's better than the alternative.
How many will be attending the 'Trump-Giving Day Militany Parade?'
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
I absolutely will not attend a third-world regime show of strength. This is the United States of America, we don't do that nonsense.
I switched the television on tonight and caught most of "The Fifth Element" on Syfy. I'll watch that...
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Robocop, Avengers, Starship Troopers, Children of Men, Office Space, Blade Runner, etc.
Anyone make any close connections yet?
Gohan comments on Feb 11, 2018:
Not yet, still working on it though.
Coffee or tea?
Gohan comments on Feb 10, 2018:
Coffee.
Reasons for attending church or mass
Gohan comments on Feb 10, 2018:
Brain damage.
Am I still single because my face is that hideous?
Gohan comments on Feb 10, 2018:
At first sight of your picture "ugly" was not the word that came to mind. Beauty is not just the layers of skin we show to the world, it is what fires in our minds and breathe through our mouths and lands in the ears of others.
What makes people read.
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
A genetic predisposition for stories.
Why do I hate it when a man sexualize my insights/intelligence/etc?
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Intelligence is sexy and is subjective to sexual orientation. There's a word for someone who has a fondness for intelligence, sapiophile. To those who aren't sexually oriented to one another the fondness is still present, but the sexual component is not present. I'm sorry if you hate the adulation. Attractiveness and understanding, love, and respect aren't always mutually exclusive.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know. -- Ernest Hemmingway.(author) Have ...
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Intelligence can be a mixed blessing. It grants those who possess it an insight to the world and this has an impact on overall happiness. Those with it could see the paths that governmental representatives are taking, and this can have an adverse effect on happiness. Those of higher intelligence have a greater capacity for creativity, this could have a positive effect on happiness. Therefore happiness is subjective.
Does anyone remain confident in Trump
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Unfortunately he has a cult following. For them, he can do no wrong. There's a perfect word to describe Trump and that word is trumpery.
Favorite Anything?
Gohan comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Driving a Pontiac Fiero GT.
POF - Plenty of Fish. Anyone familiar with it or use it? What are your thoughts on pof?
Gohan comments on Feb 8, 2018:
I have a POF account and I've had some dates. It used to be good, but since ownership of the site has changed hands it has become nothing but porn ad after porn ad. You have to pay to see your matches on the meet me section. I think it needs to go back to being the great site it once was. It needs to be 100% free again. Now, I shall step down from my soapbox.
I want to thank @Affinis for giving me this idea (after reading your thread on Lorraine Hansberry)....
Gohan comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Dogma (1999)
What does American greatness mean to you?
Gohan comments on Feb 7, 2018:
The United States of America has never been great. It has always been a work in progress. Some members of our government like to see progress halted at all cost. Some have a different view and wish to push us into the future with a sense of dignity. We've seen democracy work. Some individuals seek to tear down all that has been built because of their personal beliefs. We need to make our representatives represent the people not the corporations.
Is it easy for you to adapt to change?
Gohan comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Change is inevitable and necessary. Without it life would be uninteresting.
Do yoy find yourself still saying'bless you' when some one sneeze
Gohan comments on Feb 6, 2018:
I say nothing. But if someone does say 'bless you' to me, I politely thank them.
So if your standing there talking to god and he sneezes.........what do you say??????
Gohan comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Whatever does a god need with a sneeze reflex?
What is your favorite Star Wars movie?
Gohan comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
What do men want in a woman?
Gohan comments on Feb 4, 2018:
I cannot speak for all men, but what I look for in a woman is someone who is a friend, confidant, and lover. Someone I can spend time with me and never tire of my company. Someone who understands even when I don't.
If you won the lottery,,,
Gohan comments on Feb 4, 2018:
My first purchase would be a cup of coffee. Then it would be all spent. The most I've ever won on the lottery was about $3.
Who are you reading?
Gohan comments on Feb 4, 2018:
Redemption Ark by Alistair Reynolds I lean toward Science Fiction, but I've been known to read some of the classics too.
Does Your Ego Serve You, Or Do You Serve Your Ego?
Gohan comments on Feb 4, 2018:
Yes. I think that's what it's there for.
Southern region question- Is it true that Dunkin Donuts builds near a Publix?
Gohan comments on Feb 3, 2018:
This might be a rarity, there's a Wal-Mart across the street from our Dunkin Donuts and the nearest Publix is about four or maybe five miles away.
What's a good romantic gift someone could give you?
Gohan comments on Feb 3, 2018:

How do ya’ll cope with an office job?
Gohan comments on Feb 3, 2018:
I began writing due to the office environment. Whenever I had a chance I would write a paragraph or if I was lucky to have the time a whole page.
Favorite quotes.
Gohan comments on Feb 3, 2018:
"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment... because they'll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we lived. After all, Number One, we're only mortal." -Jean-Luc Picard Star Trek: Generations

Gohan comments on Feb 2, 2018:

Do you belive in Ufos?Aliens? I do lol????Were not alone in This Enormes Universe.There must be life...
Gohan comments on Feb 1, 2018:
I believe that there's a high probability of the existence of aliens. As for UFOs they're real until they've been identified.
Do you find learning new things exhilarating or do you feel like learning is a tedious chore?
Gohan comments on Jan 31, 2018:
I find learning new things to be exhilarating. Words are fun, but I have found using proper English makes some feel vacuous, so I refrain. In my writing I will not succumb to others' unwillingness to pick up a dictionary.
Have you ever burned a bible?
Gohan comments on Jan 31, 2018:
I have a love for books, so to burn one is a sacrilege in and of itself. This is of course my opinion. To each their own. I don't judge. I see a bible or any other religious text as a work of fiction designed to manipulate.

Joker (The Dark Knight) Loki (Avengers) Gul Dukat (Star Trek Deep Space Nine) Captain Gabriel Lorca (Star Trek Discovery)
Would you raise your children religious just to fit in?
Gohan comments on Jan 30, 2018:
No. I would teach them to think critically and question everything. They may be ridiculed by those who don't follow their religious morals, but they will live happier lives.
Is it wrong to use child soldiers?
Gohan comments on Jan 30, 2018:
Even if the children survive a war they will be casualties even if their bodies are unharmed. It's morally reprehensible. Anyone pushing a child into war should be tried for crimes against humanity.
State of the Union Address, anyone?
Gohan comments on Jan 30, 2018:

Sex. And, then what?
Gohan comments on Jan 28, 2018:
Cuddle while engaging in conversation.
Liberals
Gohan comments on Jan 28, 2018:
How about we dispense with the labeling and have true representatives who care about what their constituents want. This is called democracy. What the "patriot" conservatives what is more money and are willing to create policies that grant them this. And to have some morals is "liberal" and is taboo. I was born in this country and was taught the ideals of our forefathers and they are not being lived up to.

Gohan comments on Jan 28, 2018:

1988 Pontiac Fiero GT.
What if?
Gohan comments on Jan 25, 2018:
The Pope said there's room in Heaven for moral atheists. I guess he's supposed to have God at his ear. So, don't sweat it.
Do you like to play brainy games or enjoy puzzles of any sort?
Gohan comments on Jan 24, 2018:
I enjoy playing video games, puzzles, and Sudoku. Making my brain work makes real work better and easier.
Send Betsy DeVos a message: let her know how she has failed to make the grade. – NEA
Gohan comments on Jan 24, 2018:
Trump said it himself, "I love the uneducated." He has a track record of appointing people in positions they staunchly disagree with. In DeVos' case, she hates education with a passion. She wants to destroy the population by making our children into mindless slaves only capable of pulling levers and digging coal. That is something that should not stand and it has for the past year. Don't just impeach Trump, that won't solve the problem. Invalidate the entire administration and remove them from office. We can no longer tolerate a government that only works for corporations with little to no regard for the people. Return democracy.
Excluding sex or bathing, what activities have you done naked?

What is your favorite movie of all time and why?
Gohan comments on Jan 24, 2018:
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. When I was eight the thought of space travel fascinated me. I was learning about space in school and the evolution of technologies for that purpose. And I liked whales too.
Was I wrong to laugh in her face?
Gohan comments on Jan 24, 2018:
It's natural to laugh at the ridiculous. It seems that those who place faith in a shared delusion can't seem to get that though they have faith does not mean everyone has to have faith in it.
You heathens eat pineapple on pizza?
Gohan comments on Jan 24, 2018:
Absolutely. I'm going to have some tonight. To each their own.
What would be the definition of hell to you?
Gohan comments on Jan 24, 2018:
Hell, in my opinion, is not some astral plane where your greatest fears are inflicted upon you because you sinned. I feel that Hell is a state of mind, whether it is caused by your environment or it is self-inflicted depends on the individual. Hell could be living with roommates that won't clean or pay their bills. Or, it could be meeting your significant other's parents and they hate you because you don't meet their standards. As for some place your soul goes to suffer endlessly, that may be a work of fiction to strike fear into people.
Are Immigrants Ruining America?
Gohan comments on Jan 23, 2018:
Immigrants have made this country strong. It's corporate owned lackeys with purchased titles who are actively and willfully destroying this country for their greed.

Gohan comments on Jan 22, 2018:
I'm currently editing my third novel, Where the Stars Hang (wtshnovel.weebly.com). My two published novels are available on Amazon (Veiled Stars and Measured Land.)
How Many Writers In This Group?
Gohan comments on Jan 22, 2018:
I'm a Science Fiction writer. Veiled Stars and Measured Land both available on Amazon. One, Where the Stars Hang, is in the editing phase. One day I was bored at work and pulled out a notebook and began writing a novel (I might go back and rewrite it,) ever since I've been writing and getting better at it as time progresses.
Are there any creative writers in the group? I like to write short stories, and I struggle to keep ...
Gohan comments on Jan 22, 2018:
Your point of view is what brings truth to your scribblings. Without it, the work will feel flat and without substance. Pour yourself into the work.
