SpongeBob is real and Bikini Bottom exists!

You heard it right. Spongebob is actually filmed through a crystal ball and exists in an alternate universe where the laws of physics are a bit different. The makers of the show found an alternate universe at a seance and were so fascinated by it that they decided to film it as a documentary. After filming several episodes they decided that no one ever watches documentaries so they should just make it look like a cartoon show instead. While the actor who plays the pirate is actually one of us, the visits to Bikini Bottom are all documentary footage of the alternate universe and yes squirrels can actually live at the bottom of the ocean there despite the head crushing pressure that humans would face.

The inhabitants of this alternate reality actually do speak English so the show's creators were able to understand everything they say.

Why does Mister Krabs have a whale for a daughter? Turns out he adopted her to get a welfare check from the Bikini Bottom Department of Marine Affairs.

Why did Sandy Cheeks move to Bikini Bottom? In reality, she left Texas to escape a stalker who likes to rape squirrels and chickens. She went into the witness protection program and they figured he would never find her in Bikini Bottom.

Is Patrick really that dumb? Yes. Yes he is.

Why do the fish drown at the beach and how does it rain underwater? There are still things about this alternate universe we do not quite get.

Why are the fish so humanish?  In their reality nuclear radiation altered the fish in that area and changed them from regular aquatic life in other areas of the world. The residents were warned by King Neptune never to go into the forbidden zone where they would be eaten by sharks and die.

Where is Bikini Bottom located in the alternate universe?
Bikini Bottom is located in the Pacific Ocean at the bottom of the sea, below its signature island, Bikini Atoll, a part of the Marshall Islands in the alternate reality they have labelled Bikini Bottom Land for scientific reference.

Brand U

its all about the branding baby. your profiles need the same name if at all possible.
there are a few other ray nichols online so i cant always get @raynichols for a username, but if you can nail the same ids down for all your accounts they will blend well with your website and make it easier for people to find you. if you cant get the same id for each profile at least put all your social media on your home page so fans can check them against posers. while i will probably never have to discredit a poser for my accounts, its just more logical to use the same handle for each site when possible. also, the same profile pic, you cant even get verified most of the time if you change your pic so get a really good one and use it well and forever. updated pics can be put elsewhere, but a social media profile pic is just like a logo for a business. use it well.

A New Bond

M introduced herself and invited him to sit down. 
"Here's your new id, Nick." she handed him a wallet with id inside. 
He opened it up and looked at it. "Bond? James Bond," he read the name on the id, then he eyed the credit cards inside. 
"All double 0 sevens use that name. We change the picture of course. From now on you will operate as James Bond, 007." The new director sat in her chair and smiled, lifting her glass to her lips. 
"Wouldn't it be better to use a different name for each new agent?" he asked. 
"No, of course not, Mister Bond. The legends of your exploits are greatly intimidating to your opponents. They cant figure out why they cant kill you, you see." M smiled and took a sip from her wine glass. 
"I would just as soon they didn't." he said. 
"Relax, James. The last one who tried is dead." M put her glass down and turned on her laptop, brushing her long red hair out of her eyes. "And you graduated top of your class. Your instructors will see to it no one lays a hand on you. The double 0's are legend in their field. Oh, you have a meeting with Q in an hour. Don't be late." 
"Q? Who's that?" James looks at his new watch and checks the time... 
"New girl, very inventive, like her father before her... She has some gifts for you." M turns to her laptop and begins to read documents on it. "Don't be late." 
"Right, I'll just see myself out." James rises from his chair and exits to the outer office where a lovely secretary with long legs is typing a letter. "Oh hello. Bond. James Bond here." He introduces himself mostly to get in the practice. He nods and holds out his hand. 
The young girl at the computer keeps typing without looking up. "So you're the new 007. Shame. I rather liked the last one. Name's Moneypenny. Just started about a month ago. Nice to meet you. Don't be late for your meeting with Q." 
"They never told me what happened to the last 007. I don't suppose he retired..." James smiled slightly, hoping for a favourable answer. 
Miss Moneypenny looked sadly at her screen for a moment then sighed and went back to typing again. 
"Right, well. Mustn't be late for miss Q." James headed out the door. Preferring to not think about the future, or James Bond's past. He hoped that miss Q would be more of a talker some how, but he doubted it....

suspended for what? et tu, twitter?

much like nazi germany, social media is silencing anyone who doesnt like the bad things they do. facebook and twitter will suspend your account without notice or reason or delete a post you shared or retweeted without even telling you what it was or why they think they have the right.
make no mistake if censorship rises and freedom of speech is lost we all lose. these nazis have no right to say no you cant tell on us for being against the constitution or freedom of speech or freedom of expression. everyone has the right to their opinion and no social media tyrants should be free to silence them.
my twitter was suspended recently for no reason or explanation and i cannot even write to the nazi in charge to ask why. #bs.
i suspect it is because they did not like something that was retweeted by my newsletter which i did not personally tweet out but that should not ban me from existing on twitter.
these nazis are too powerful for our own good and i shall have to look for a better alternative to twitter now.
my account at raytopian is dead. fu twitter.

Google plus is gone.

googles attempt at overthrowing facebook is dead. not popular enough to merit the time and cost i suppose and like all such fails, it was closed.
the sad thing is plus was a good site with a lot of potential. but money talks.
and now all the blogger blogs will have to settle for a blogger profile instead of the more interesting and colorful google plus profile it had before.
peace.

the fall of the mcu

spoilers ahead..... 

killing off steve rogers after only a couple movies is no smarter than the countless times they tried to replace him in the books. it didnt work then and it wont work now. the fans dont love him because he wears red white and blue and stands for justice even when the government dont. they love him because they watched him grow up and evolve into the true hero he has come to represent. you dont just throw a character out and replace him with someone new. its the story that fans love.

 silly marvel cinema, comics are for fans.

myspace yourspace ourspace theirspace

remember the early years when you could write a note on fb. you had the option to write a note, k? so you go on the home page and make a note. you know, like milk cheese butter eggs and what else? oh yeah chicken.... 
yeah the newbies just didnt get it with fb, k? right?
they would forget they werent on google and start posting search terms by accident, right? 
posts would be like "supplements for circulation" k?
friends would be like "what you talking about grampa? this aint google"
next post. "what is google?"
right?
youre smacking your face. i dont know who that is? somebody hacked gramps account....  

no one pay attention to the old mans posts he has dementia. 
k?
remember myspace??? no you bunch of millenials... anyway we had this site called myspace. it was kind of like fb but better. you know? cause you had a music system. yeah imagine that. a music player on every page. and you could just add all your favorite songs to it. k? 
yeah you go to somebodys page... i mean space. cause we all had our own space... right and the first friend we made was that guy who owned it.... whats his name? yeah he had like millions of friends on his space... or his myspace. yeah his myspace was different from my myspace but we were friends so it was our myspace. k? right?  
then he sold it to some asshole and myspace was gone. i was in a vacuum in the universe. i had no myspace anymore... damn it guys. my music player and my blogs were gone and my fake profiles... you know you really cant roleplay any where like myspace.... or your myspace... or whatever.... 
tried to get back in later, cause i missed myspace, but it just wasnt the same anymore... 
you know... its like first everybody was on web tv and then that went away and they all went to myspace and then that was gone and they all went to fb... right? 
and we could write books and blogs on myspace... i mean i could at least... you could too if you wanted to... but then it was gone.... and then we started writing stories on fb... k????
we could make notes and keep them in a folder... cant hardly find that folder now... but that was the old days... back when facebook was cool... you know? it put peanuts in its coke... no not that kind of coke you weirdo... 
but fb used to be cool... you could hang out and chat and write on peoples walls... we liked to write on peoples walls or draw or hang pictures on walls... it was the happening place... 
back when i was a boy facebook was cool... 
thanks for coming out tonight.... 
peace.
