And the winner is...

Since Vidad presented the challenge, he gets first crack at picking the winner. Vidad writes:
Boy... some good stuff here. Not quite as black as I expected, though.

A-Town Andy: Funny. Reminds me of the old sci-fi movies where Venus is populated with scantily clad babes.

Henry: Brilliantly philosophical.

Tom: Very nihilistic. Women are property and the main character is disgustingly amoral.

Jamsco: Meticulously done. Ecclesiastes is a personal favorite read. Good way to illustrate Nihilism.

Arisia: Nice work. You should read some of Larry Niven's "Known Space" stories, if you haven't already.

Ben-El: Wonderful! Suicide is good. I like suicide. It's my favorite.

KTown: Great start, thanks for jumping in last-minute. Now... what happens next?

WaterBoy: Ah! Revenge! Sweet, sweet revenge to wash down the bitterness of betrayal!

James T. Kirk: Come on. Picard was twice the nihilist you'll ever be.

But... who to pick? If I was really going to judge, I think I'm torn between Ben-El, Henry and WaterBoy.

However, in the spirit of this challenge, my choice is:
"Why did anyone bother? You're all going to die before too long, and no one will remember the words you spew into cyberspace. What do you win? Nothing. No one wins this week."

After which Vidad went on to add:
"From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish. Silence! In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half-hour. Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check. Furthermore, all children under 16 years old are now... 16 years old!"

Given this stunning proof of the painful truth that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely—and in Vidad's case, with astonishing rapidity—we felt it necessary to step in and overrule him. WaterBoy, you're hereby declared this week's winner! Come on down and collect...

Er, ah, oops, we forgot. The contents of the Door #2 storage locker were eaten by an enormous mutant star goat at roughly the same time as we switched web hosts, and the Door #3 storage locker has not been brought online yet. Give us another day or two to take care of that, would you? Thanks.
