How is Ann Coulter able to buttfuck Richard Nixon?


What, you never heard of a strap-on? Or is it the fact that Nixon's dead?

Actually not an orphaned work, but you need to figure out why on your own.

Man I wish you all could be here with me. Its 77:degrees at almost 9:20 in the evening. They finally got the WI-FI working in Union Square so I got my music, and am sharing a happy with people I like.

If my life could be like this a bit more often, I wouldn't have to bother you with depressive shit the little I do. Just wanted to share a positive for a change. :-D :-)

I'm glad you're having a good day. It's a good idea to savor such moments as you are doing. Me? I'm savoring the fact that I'm now home from work and I have the weekend to look forward to. I hope your good days stretch out before you.

Exactly.
All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

I meant to post this on the Pavilion, and I probably will at some point. Heck, it probably deserves its own thread here:

I've been reading SF for the last 40 years, pretty much since age 11. And for some reason, because someone somewhere told me the book either wasn't 'an exciting read,' or it was 'dense and nearly unreadable,' I never picked up Frank Herbert's DUNE. Until last month.

If you haven't read it (and I'm sure most of you have) it's an absolute delight. And perhaps if I had picked it up and read it back when I was a teenager, I wouldn't have liked it as much as I do now. Here's how much I liked it: I read 2/3 of it over Labor Day weekend, then read the final third (it's around 800 pages long) on a four day backpacking trip I took a few weeks back.

I can't imagine how I would feel if someone said they'd read SF for decades but had never tackled Asimov's FOUNDATION series. Or perhaps I can...

(edited to add): In fact, I think it may have been something Harlan wrote that led me to believe that he found the book difficult to get through, but it's been a few decades, and I'll probably leave that little detail out if I tell the story "up there," unless I can find a definitive source. Truth be told, it could have been any one of the writers/columnists" I've read over the years who said it.

What do you writers think about Amazon's payment for books? Writers get something like 35 percent?

No, they don't. There are a lot of extra fees they charge the writer that chews that all up pretty fast. Like almost everything else Amazon does, they never tell you up front what's actually going on.

Copyright laws will not stop Amazon. See, there is a bigger meme going on.

The one has almost nothing to do with the other.
