  1. No, I got to the one with the Hivemaster. I thought the GIFTS said there'd be spells there once I rescued the prisoners. Maybe I got it wrong.
  2. I've killed everything in the Aranea Lair but couldn't find any spells. Did I miss a switch or something?
  3. The Glass Bead Game is one of my favorite books - up there with anything by Hesse. If I'd read it as a youth I may have been inspired to apply myself more to learning. If only...

  5. The Glass Bead Game by Herman Hesse. Excellence as usual from big Hermie.

  8. Hang on. Yes I do. You're talking about scientific method rather than what it may or may not prove, right?

  10. heh. Sounds like it'd be right up your alley Big D. If what can't be explained by science falls into the category of pseudoscience then that would be the larger part of everything. Wasn't it Einstein who said that what we know is insignificant to what we don't know?
  11. Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson. One of the most brilliant books I've read.
  12. and Doug Stanhope is more crass than witty.

The other day, I had a librarian tell me "I used to call it 1000 years of solitude, it was so long." A librarian showing you his/her witty side - you must be a favoured borrower.
