Just a dumb game idea I stole and modified.

I'll start off with a prompt. The next person has to start a story off with thirty words, and the next continue it with the same, and so on and so on, for thirty rounds. The idea is to make a coherent 900 word story, with whoever gets the last round getting to create the prompt for the next one, assuming we haven't all gotten bored and wandered off by then.

You can't add a new entry unless two other people have gone after your last post.

Every person who participates should copy the previously written bits into their post and tack their own segment on in bold underneath it. This isn't complicated at all but I know someone will fail to do it right anyway; when that happens I'll delete their post and someone else can go.

Same goes for poor grammar etc. It's not that hard to proofread thirty words.

Your prompt, borrowed from a robot:

A story about a jumpy dog who must win a race while on Mars.

Jimmy the dog jumped up again, trying to see out the window. Sure, it's the moon, but the lunar base had windows, and he wanted to see what was happening. Nathan, his owner, reached down and ruffled his ears. "Ready to go?" he asked with a chuckle. His mom thought he was crazy for bringing the big English Setter to Seraphim 5, but the truth was that the boys were inseparable ever since Jimmy saved his owner during the harrowing camping incident at Shadow Mountain. It was only reasonable that the two would become the best of friends because of that.

Jimmy barked, happy that his owner wanted to go out with him. He began to scratch at the door, then barked when he heard someone knocking on the other side. "Calm down," Nathan said, opening the door. He tried to shut it again when he saw their visitor was his ex, Victoria, but she quickly blocked the door with her foot.

“Come now, is that any way to treat a lady?” she asked, as she pushed her way into the door.

Nathan gulped nervously. He hated that bitch, but another part of him (literally) told him he didn't. Jimmy the dog barked excitedly at this intruder, his tail wagging.

Before either could react, Victoria jammed a needle in Nathan's neck. When he awoke, he was on a ship arriving at Mars, minus his wallet. He groaned. Jimmy barked happily. Nathan tried to clear his head and realized that he could not feel his legs. He looked down to see that they had been hacked off just below the knees.

“Ugh,” Nathan groaned, and dropped his head back down against the floor. That bitch is evil. My wallet? Sure. My legs though? Come on. Those fucking prosthetics cost a fortune. Using what little strength his noodle arms had, Nathan dragged himself into a little red wagon nearby. Hitching Jimmy's leash to the handle, Nathan was mobile again.

Nathan scanned the room for anything that could get back to Seraphim 5. Jimmy saw a mouse scamper by and rushed towards it, taking Nathan with him. The mouse was biomechanical, augmented to derive nutrients from cleaning filth. The animal cruelty folks got up in arms about it, but low-budget freighters always had these. It would likely lead them to a garbage chute.

"Jimmy, stop!" he yelled, frantic.

"Whoa!" a crewmember exclaimed, managing to halt the wagon. "That dog can really run! You should enter him in the race."

"Race?" Nathan asked, confused. "What race?"

"The 142nd Semi-Annual Dog Race," the crewmember explained. "It's 3 kilometers long." The crewmember then added, "Which is about 2 miles long."

Nathan glanced at his stumps.

"That won't stop you from racing. Assuming Turbowagon doesn't bump you off the track."

The crewmember tears up, looking down at his feet, which have numerous ingrown toenails. "Don't miss this opportunity to win prize money you can use to buy yourself wonderful new feet!"

"We're leaving right now!" Nathan decided.

"All contestants to the starting line!" came the announcement.

Sorry to interrupt the story, but if anyone else can see the links in Corgi's posts, that's adware I'm pretty sure so uh, don't click on them.

I thought it was on my end but he's seeing them too and they are only in his posts, so it is Corgi, he's got the AIDS.

No, it's not adware (as far as I can tell), I just checked. It leads to replying to the post right before Corgi213's.

If you'll Google the weird bits in the link you'll discover that it's adware. And either way he's got something on his phone or computer inserting links for him and this is bad.

Well then, your probably right, mizal. I believe that it's not sending me to the adware because my device won't let me view it, so that's a relief.

I don't know that much why I posted this. I suppose it's because I'm trying harder to accept it when I'm wrong, so I said this.

It's okay. It's Corgi. We pretty much already know he's diseased...

For me it also shows up in everyone else's little story posts, but yes, I'm pretty sure my computer has contracted aids.

Exactly. It's you. It's a horrible disease. And it likely showed up in your post simply because you copied someone else's work from your screen that was already infected. You might read this.

It's okay, Corgi, I'm sure there's a way to get around it. If not, then try to take it to the computer store (if it's a laptop) or call some Tech Support guy. Maybe deleting the cookies, or clearing the page cache, or something?

Nah, it's a horrible, annoying infection. It will take a program that's trained to remove infections, nothing simple will fix it. It is beyond annoying, though, when you have it. Literally every single web page you load suddenly has words all over the page, usually dozens and dozens of them, that become links to advertisements. It used to be pretty hard to get rid of, but today's tools should clean it up pretty quickly if you use them.

Oh, crap! Sp that's what my friend's computer had!

Explanation: When I was in school, there was a computer lab. Next to me, a former friend was using a computer with the same virus.

To Corgi: So, I just Googled some stiff. If you Google "My computer has aids" you will see a Wikipedia thing, two videos, and at the bottom, a link to a site on how to clear AIDS from your computer (I think it's the computer virus version type). I hope that it works.
