    The definition of dork according to wiktionary:

    A *****.

    So what will you do when they call your name and you're not ready to go?
    Everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know
    That you're in too deep and you can't quite keep your secrets, one and all
    We might just make it after all, on our own

    1. (US, pejorative, slang) A quirky, silly and/or stupid, socially inept person, or one who is out of touch with contemporary trends. Often confused with nerd and geek, but does not imply the same level of intelligence.

    2. (archaic, vulgar, slang) A *****.



    Nest is a *****?
    Yeah, Nest is a *****.

    I agree that "Nest is a *****?"

    You agree that you ask yourself if Nest is a *****?

    Or you agree that you believe Nest is a *****?

    I agree with the asking of the question. I don't particularly care enough to agree with the answer.

    I kind of view Nesterus as our equivalent of a cylon hybrid when he makes these posts. But I like what he writes. It has poetry and meaning and value. Sorry for being a dissenter. *shrugs*

    You see children almost eleven thousand years ago this planet was covered in ice sheets but the little planet was being watched. As the glaciation retreated the watchers realized that this little ball would be the perfect planet to get rid of their "risky" cargo.

    This cargo just happened to be 1200 people, part of a colony ship that was hijacked. These 1200 were unable to preserve their society in the normal way due to a cataclysmic event brought on by a small faction of the marooned colonists, the survivors of this event intermingled with the native population and even though they were somewhat less evolved they still were able to mate the females, causing genetic variations.
    Now as time passed and the generations went on, all the technological ideas and practices quickly fell to the wayside due to the fact that there was no way to recreate most of the advanced mechanisms on this undeveloped planet, but a few of them had a secret, their brains were somewhat smaller but they could effectively use almost 90% of their brain with proper training and channeling. This allowed them not to foretell the future but to glimpse ahead at all the possible divergences your soul can take, they actually could glimpse the weaves, using the weaves a beacon they were able to bring their people together and prosper. Unfortunately as time wore on the bloodlines became thinner and thinner and the ability to actually watch and view the weaves became almost impossible, eventually those who were trained in the most rudimentary way were barely able to catch a glimpse of the weaves, but were still able to make efficient decisions.

    Many great Kings of the ancient world claimed heritage from this group, they used it as proof of their "divine right to rule".The last proven holder of the bloodline was Jesus of Nazareth, he used his ability to glimpse to weaves to form a web so strong that it endures mightily two thousand years later. The only problem now is that around 70 years ago the even more so advanced members of the race that jump started the genetic alteration of humans has returned, the benevolent leader of that voyage crew gave mankind something as powerful as fire from Prometheus, and that angered the homeworlds, and now the stage has been set, what many people never knew is that Jesus of Nazarath had children, many children in fact, his bloodline was the most carefully guarded secret in history. In a little over a year eight of these descendants will begin a journey that most of them will have no clue they started, they must succeed if the 42 are to stay alive, and if the 42 dont stay alive, then life as we know it is over and humanities tomb stone will be a barren planet bereft of all life.


    We were born into interesting times my friends.
