Getting away

...The automated doors were closing with that sound characteristic of pneumatic machinery when, through the walls and the windows, a man's voice still managed to make its way to the passengers' ears. It was some announcement, carried by that gray-ish air you usually find in old photographs, but the voice was too faint to make out the message. He managed to catch some o's with strange dots hovering over them, as well as some u's wearing the same hat and some beta's. The flash of a chill passed through his spine, but just for a second. He then decided to leave the voice where it was --in the past, one minute; two minutes ago--, and continue reading there where he was. In that seat on the train, in that gray, washed-out atmosphere with that strange smell of metal.

Sometimes

Sometimes, I go to a dark place and I linger there for a while. When I'm in there, I don't like myself —in fact, I don't like anything at all; I awake at night, not knowing who I am, or why.

I don't like the dark place.

This post is not sarcastic

Not at all. I think, in fact, that the sarcasm punctuation mark is an extremely good idea. How often have we been victims of that terrible terrible weapon of evil minded people who, just for kicks, take advantage of our gullibility. The sarcmark (how they call it) is the perfect solution to that problem. What's more, on top of it being such a good idea, it's cheap too! 

Writer aficionado, this is for you! No more complex writing skills needed to express your sarcasm, no more creativity needed to it. Just say it, followed by a sarcmark, and your readers will know that you're actually being sarcastic.

Clearly, a good deal. So go on people! Buy your very own sarcasm punctuation mark*! This will not only help avoid misunderstandings, it will also take away all the fun to being sarcastic!

Note. This post was, in case you didn't notice, very sarcastic.
