    Counting needs some work, me thinks.


    Great Escape, POWs, tunnels + flashy yank
    Saving Private Ryan. Lost soldier, found!
    Do articles count?
    I bet it would be more fun to leave the titles out and then let everyone guess what movie that is.

    With word counts, I like exactness.

    (All my essays reach max exactly.)
    Do they really? That's pretty weird.

    In. Out. In. Out. In. Out.
    You're doing it wrong. It is:

    You put your left leg in, your left leg out, in out, in out shake it all about, you do the hokey cokey and you turn around, that's what it's all about! WOAHHHHHHHHH the hokey cokey, WOAHHHHHHH the hokey cokey, WOAHHHHHH the hokey cokey, knees bend, arms stretch rah rah rah! (I know that's not 6 words, but it's the damn hokey cokey!)

    How can six words constiture literature?
    How can you argue that it doesn't? :dontknow:

    I think the whole beauty of literature is in trying to determine the inspiration behind a work's conception, that fleeting spark of creativity which compelled the writer to construct a story, or a sentence in such a way as to best express a specific sentiment.

    I think Hemingway's six word short story is amazing, what it implies and the thoughts that it provokes. Don't you see how it's conciseness contributes to its affect? What's so good about it is that he doesn't explicitly reveal the details of the story, but instead allows us to question our own interpretations, and explore the possibilities for ourselves.

    Why are the shoes never worn?
    Why are they being sold, If the baby has died, then why are they not kept for sentimental reasons?
    Why is the advert so short? Is it painful for the person to provide a more detailed account?
    Who wrote the advert? A mother?
    What compelled the person to write the advert and sell the shoes, surely they will not make much money from them... Is it even worth advertising?

    Or the whole thing could just be a story about a shoe salesman, and ultimately a big mind **** that sends us down a road of unnecessary interpretation

    I quite like it.
