Commenting on There is no intelligent life out there

i'm sorry. i buried the headline. Hawking's book has a chapter on time travel. But read it all. Both books wouldn't take an entire weekend, including "coffee" breaks.

i would like to recommend "Get a Grip on Physics" by John Gribbin, copyright 1999, Ivy Press, ISBN 0-7807-3748-7. It's accessible as all git out and has lots of pics. It gets a little intellectual when it arrives to the Quantum section and beyond, but if you paid attention to the first two chapters you should be fine.
i would also like to recommend, (who doesn't? for crying out loud?) "A Brief History of Time. The Updated And Expanded Tenth Anniversary Edition" by Stephen Hawking. Stephen's book is a lot more famous and you shouldn't need ISBN or anything.
VERY fucking accessible.
for that matter though, i'd also like to recommend "The Big Lebowski" by the Coen Brothers.
it's so fucking accessible you'll be wiping the caucasian off your upper ip.


Commenting on DEA warns FedEx not to ship illegal drugs for nearly a decade

I remember the police coming to my dad's house once with a warrant for me. It was only 6 months old and the county had dropped the charges 5 months earlier.

The hand of justice is mighty and swift.

The nice thing about stories like this is that I can admire his anti-materialistic views, may be take a piece or two for my own personal life, may not take out that car loan because my 1990 truck is running just fine.

I'll need to put In to Thin Air on my reading list, I've watched several documentaries on Mt. Everest and the joy/horrors it holds.

As a note, I had nothing to do with the original email and the lack security best practices. I was merely CC'ed on the one from today.

Really intriguing story. I tend to lean more towards the "he's an idiot" side. It does bring up the romantic side of man's nature to explore and live off the land but my practical brain takes hold. Maybe because of my surroundings.

I do admire that he shunned the materialistic side of life, he said, while reclined in his arm chair, staring at his big screen TV and PS3. I'm also torn by his statements about conformity, peace of mind and adventure. Having lived a life trying to "do the right thing" I have passed on too many opportunities for adventure. This was made all too clear once I'd done "all the wrong things" to be with my then girlfriend, now wife.

I read Krakauer's "In to Thin Air" many years ago and couldn't put it down. Looks like I'll have to line this one up.

The book and movie based on his life are both worthy.
