My futuristic flash story 'Flipped' is up at http://www.weirdyear.com/ today.

Ages ago I saw a 'what if' on www.ideas4writers.co.uk about being unable to make decisions. It stuck in my mind, and when I had flu in November I thought about someone using coin flips to make decisions. Then I thought 'what if the coin snapped in half?' After that, the story almost wrote itself. It's nice when that happens.  smiley

Excellent story! Like the way that Kel's body gets sliced in half just like his coin.

Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]
