Hey, if you'll pay, they'll probably do both.  I love that they have LLC on their sign.  Someone may need to tell them that their sign does not have to say their entire legal name.

Monstrous Wondrous Inspiration - RL for your RPG

Location - Pura Tanah Lot (translation: Temple atop Tanah Lot) in Tabanan, Indonesia

This is a Hindu temple atop a rock in the ocean which is said to be guarded by, I kid you not, sea snakes.

The sea snakes live in the caves at the base of the rock that were formed by the constant crashing of the surf. There is also, supposedly, one giant snake that lives in the deep water around the island as kind of a super guardian.
These snakes defend the temple from evil spirits.

The temple itself is one of seven off the coast of Bali, all within eye-shot of each other. Together they act as both appeasement to the ocean gods and as a spiritual defense network for the shore.

This location is almost unbelievably scenic, and is so ripe for stories to be told, I don't know if you can, in good conscience, not use this as a story setting.

For more, go to http://goo.gl/Sdvf0E and thanks again to Atlas Obscura for letting us know about the wondrous places this world has to offer.

Great space explorers who lack opposable thumbs.

Inhuman Invaders of Spaaaaaace
An honorary mention should be given to Space Bat [http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/space-bat] who blast off into the history books on March 15, 2009. Known affectionately (by me) as Caesar, this little fella is possibly the only non-hominid to blast off without being coerced or forced to do so in any way (unless you want to get technical and count the 5.3 million foot-pounds of thrust the solid rocket boosters provided as coercion.)

As a final thought, check out this video of Mir's 1990 quail chicks in microgravity. [http://youtu.be/X7-hm3A7ayI]

Beat Sheets for Compelling Stories TL;DR at bottom
Found this at http://jamigold.com/for-writers/worksheets-for-writers/ and thought it was interesting. I was reading an article about "Save the Cat" ( _http://amzn.com/B00340ESIS_ and _http://www.savethecat.com/_ ) and an hour later I found myself on a completely different site looking at some cool writing worksheets. This was the simplest, and I thought it may interest you guys who are taking part in NaNoWriMo ( _http://nanowrimo.org/_ )
Other, more complex sheets, for specific story types or increased plot granularity, can be found at http://jamigold.com/for-writers/worksheets-for-writers/ as well.

Cleaned, converted, and updated
I fixed and cleaned up all the formulas, made a tweak or two to make it even more user friendly (you can choose your word count per page now, and the formatting makes more sense to me now.)
Then recreated it all again in Google Sheets because Sheets didn't want to port over the formulas and formatting, only the values.

TL;DR
Beat-Sheets story pacing guide worksheet in Google Sheets for anyone to use.
Credit to +Jami Gold  @ http://jamigold.com/for-writers/worksheets-for-writers/ for creating the initial sheet and giving a great explanation on how to use Beat Sheets.
Act Two, The protagonist reacts to the new goal/stakes/obstacle, but suffers from one step forward and two steps back, 1, 0, 0, 0. 13. Pinch Point #1, What events add more conflict? 0, 0. 14. Midpoint, What event can reinforce the story's goals and stakes?

Another Not Really A Fortune Cookie
For those who can't make it out, the unfortune is as follows:

Leaders are like eagles, they don't flock... you find them one at a time.

There was supposed to be a photo here, but it looks like it was removed when I added the location. I'll see about adding it back when I get home.

Also, I would like to point out that eagles (and leaders) are frequently found in pairs or groups if you manage to find them at all.

For eagles, this may have something to do with the fact that many (if not all) eagles mate for life, and mating is an important part of species propagation
.
For leaders, it may have to do with the fact that effective leadership needs lieutenants to carry out directives rather than just followers to carry out commands.

So not only is this not a fortune, it is also inaccurate.

"Why bother, it won't make a differnce..."
China will still pollute, so why should we stop?
 or
They will not be affected in the slightest from you not shopping there, so you may as well just get the deals.

If I take a stand, it is on a principal. Principals are not something that exist only when shared by majority. And if taking a stand was easy, we'd call it "taking a seat".

It is never a question of "will someone notice" or "will it make a difference", because I will notice, and it makes a difference to me.

Sometimes, when I am fortunate, others stand with me. And whether they stand for the same cause, or merely to support me in having a cause, I am grateful.

Bet even if alone, I will still stand.

Quoting my favorite movie / play of all time is definitely cheating:

"And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star"

Monstrous Inspiration - RL for your RPG
Here's one that is a bit more benign, but very otherworldly.
The Forest Ghost (officially called an _Albino Redwood__ )_ is so rare, that only about 50 of them are known to exist. [http://redwoods.info/showrecord.asp?id=3257]
Since they have no chlorophyll they cannot survive on their own. So they become parasitic and extract nutrients from the roots of an adjacent tree. They also will sometimes bond with the host tree so much that they become the even rarer Cimeric Albino Hermaphroditic Redwood Tree which can grow much taller and has already led to an adventure for one California botanist. [http://goo.gl/GwTjPb]
What will you do with the idea of a parasitic Forest Ghost ?

That is awesome - especially since it's easily embellished with actual spirits - Mushi Shi style.
