Tribal Knowledge

Tribal Knowledge

a 100 word story

Jeff Hite


“I don’t understand what you mean. What is tribal knowledge?”
“It is a simple concept. One tribe of people, say in the jungle, learns something, but does not share it with the other tribes.”
“Why would they not share the information.”
“It does not matter, the point is they don’t. So say a flood happens and that tribe is wiped out. That information is gone forever. That is why we log everything, so that if something happens we have a record.”
“I believe I understand.”
“I am telling you HAL,” Dave said “tribal knowledge will kill us all some day.”

Separate Volume

Separate Volume

a 100 word story

by Jeff Hite


“It is with a heavy heart and and pitiful spirit that I bring you the news today. They have decided to split our work into two volumes.” The crowd gathered in front of him began to murmur, he knew he had to get it under control or there would be chaos.
“Please, everyone settle down. We already have dividers within the group, we will just need to further subdivide. We have to keep the separate volumes untied as one. Though they will be divided we must not be. Day and night must not be divided, we will not be twilight."

Count Dracula

Count Dracula

a 100 word story

by Jeffrey Hite


“That is not fair.”
“What?”
“Look at this, we all got the same thing again.”
“What’s wrong with that? Do you think you should get more just because you are wearing a suit or something?”
“Well no, but all you guys do is yell trick or treat, they always ask me to do something. I don’t think that is fair, if they are going to ask me to do something I should at least get something extra.”
“What are you talking about I have not heard them asking you to do anything.”
“They always say count, Dracula. 1, 2 ,3.”

LIkeness

Likeness

A 100 word story

by Jeff Hite


“Well sure it looks like her, that is the point of a portrait isn’t it?”
“I don’t know Jim, I just don’t know that this is a good idea.”
“To be honest Tom I don’t care if you think it is a good Idea or not. What I want to know is if it is a good likeness of her.”
“It is a good likeness alright, too good if you ask me. I mean really did you have to draw all the fangs?”
“Of course I did... Wait did her eyes just twitch? I think she is looking at you.”

The Turkey

A 100 word story

By Jeff Hite


“The Turkey is dead.”
“Yes it is.”
“That is the way we like it best.”
“Yes, it is.”
“We don’t like it alive.”
“No we don’t”
“The Turkey is dead because it’s head is cut off.”
“That is right.”
“The skin does not have any feathers.”
“No they were taken off.”
“We don’t like it with feathers.”
“No they are hard to chew.”
“I don’t like chewing feathers.”
“I hope not.”
“The turkey is dead, with no feathers and it’s head is cut off.”
“Yes. Look can we talk about this after dinner?”
“Ok. Dad, is the bacon dead too?”

A Hole in the Ground

A Hole in the Ground

A 100 word story

By Jeff Hite


“Tim you said this place was a hole in the wall, I didn’t really think you were serious. This place is a real hole.”
“Yeah, it is a bit, but man they serve the best fires here.”
“Excuse me miss.” A man in a apron said standing next to their table.
“Yes?”
“Well you said that this place was a hole in the wall. I am the owner and I take exception to that.”
“I didn’t mean insult you, I...”
“Since it is actually below ground, it is a hole in the ground. I would appreciate you getting it right.”

Update




I just wanted to give you an update and let you know that I have not dropped off the face of the earth. I have been a bit busy, but I am getting back into the swing of things and the stories will come back pretty soon here. Like I hope to have a few 100 word stories again this week. In the mean time, I do have an announcement. Late last week, I released a short story on SmashwWords. The story is called Cargo and it is in my Mars Colony universe. You can get a copy of it here for only $.99.

Thank you for sticking with us here, and thanks for your support.

Read Meat

Read Meat
By Jeff Hite



“Gary,” his doctor began, “you have to cut out some things from your diet. Not more kindles not more ipads or iphones, in general no more read meat.”
“You mean, red meat right doc?”
“No Gary, if I had meant red meat, I would have said red meat, I mean no more read meat. You’ve been consuming entirely too much technology of late.”
“But I can’t get over the stuff I love it.”
“Well you have got to stop.”
“But what harm is it doing? I mean isn’t tech good?”
“Yes, but too much and you can’t pay my bill.”

No Squid Left behind

No Squid Left Behind
By Jeff Hite


Water world was a terrible movie. I don’t think anyone will argue that. But I think I have thought of a way that it could be a lot better. What if you introduced giant sea creatures to it. I mean if the entire planet was covered with water, there would be more oceans for them to grow in. Little things could get bigger and big things could be gianormous. Can you imagine a ten foot Maryland blue crab? And what about the epic battles between the Super blue whale and and ultimate giant squid. Can you imagine the ticket prices?

Hansel and Regrettel

Hansel and Regrettel
By Jeff Hite


“I really think we should go back now.” Grettel said to her brother.
“But if we go back now, you know mother is just going to throw us out again.”
“I really wish we had not broken the milk jar.”
“Well if you hadn’t started swinging the broom around.”
“I know I know.”
“Do you think we should have let the geese out when we left? I mean that did seem like a little bit over over kill, and besides they caused us to be lost.”
“Look quit complaining Regrettel, and help me find a way out of this cook pot.”

Exoplanet

Exoplanet
By Jeff Hite

“The Idea of exoplanets is so cool don’t you think?”
“I don’t know Betty, I mean it is neat that there are other planets out there, but what good are they going to do us?”
“Come on Jed use your imagination. What kind of life could be out there?”
“I’m using my imagination, and I can see some pretty strange life right here. I mean have you ever been to L.A. or what about West Mineral Kansas, those folks are weird with that giant digging machine.”
“It is called Big Brutus and I think it is kind of cool.”


Big Brutus is a real attraction in West Mineral Kansas, I have been there more times than I care to admit.

The Fix

The Fix
By Jeff Hite



John looked at his watch.
“20 minutes.” He could not believe that it had only been 20 minutes. “What is this stuff, that it only lasts 20 minutes.”
He looked at the packaging.
“Quick fix, for when you just can’t wait for the real stuff. Warning this product is not meant for long term use and may only resolve your problems for a short amount of time.”
He could hear the announcer's voice in his head as he read it. He sighed, “Well I guess you get what you pay for.” He picked up the other pill and took it.

Detention

Detention
By Jeff Hite



“The big house, jail, the slammer, detention, whatever you want to call it, yeah I spend some time there, why?”
“Well I don’t know if Joe is read for a girl that has spent time behind bars.”
“Why what’s he got against us jail birds?”
“Well nothing, but you see he just lost his wife and well he is kind of on the rebound, I don’t know if he is really ready for anyone.”
“What are you his mother?”
“No, but I am his friend, and I don’t want to see Joe get hurt ok?”
“Only if he wants it.”

Mine

Mine
By Jeff Hite



“Mine!” The demon in the parking garage screamed.
“But this is my spot.” Steve whined.
“Mine.” The demon screamed again this time advancing on his car.
“But, really I have the parking tag and everything.”
“Mine, mine, mine!”
“Look I understand you are upset but I paid for this spot.”
“Mine.”
“I don’t know what I want you to do?”
The demon looked at him for a moment, tilting its head to one side. “You have to go down to the parking office and tell them they gave you someone else’s spot, this is mine and you can’t have it.”

Skipping stones

Skipping Stones
By Jeff Hite

Skipping Stones Audio

“Well Sam there are a couple of things that you could do. The first, you could cut out most of the fatty foods, including the red meat and then you need to cut out things like milk and citrus at the same meal. They tend to calcify and that what causes these stones in the first place. However, you are going to have to pass these. We can try to break these up using ultra sound but it will not be much fun I’m afraid. Any questions?” The doctor finally took a breath.
“Well yeah, how do I skip these stones.”

The Speed of Pie and Ice Cream

The Speed of Pie and Ice Cream
By Jeff Hite



I once had someone one ask me what the speed of light was, the answer is one. It is always one. One foot per nanosecond. It is not exact, but at that kind of measurement who is really counting. Besides, if you were going to do any real calculations with it you would need to convert everything else from meters to feet and nanoseconds. And since there are 3.28 feet per meter, it makes the other numbers kind of messy. But if you want to bet your friends for some pie and ice cream, one is a good number.
