The Autopian

I really wish the Autopian would take the editorial interludes down a notch. Make them comments or something. They may have good information, but the constant interruptions is very distracting.


Keep your dreams, but don’t hold them tightly. Hold them in open hands.

Drizzt Do’Urden

I read the first of the Drizzt books.

They are Twilight.

Things in Twilight are easier to spell. There’s about the same amount of sex.

I really have no idea what trash the kids are reading these days. But my generation made some crap.


Seriously, the one class the physics department offers I’d love to take exactly conflicts with the one class I need from the engineering program.
