  •  Cyclotron (none)
    Is this for real?  I just finished reading The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell and there was a cyclotron in that book.  

    I'll definitely hotlist this diary, so that the next time some post their GBCW diary and doesn't follow the format, I can send this to them.  In triplicate.

    •  I stole that one from Harlan Ellison (none)
      In his book "The Glass Teat" he describes his experience as a bachelor on The Dating Game back in the late sixties, between a couple of his marriages. He only got about halfway through the show when the inanity of it all got to him, he told everyone there (in the words he used in his column) to go take a sunbath in a cyclotron, and stormed off the stage.

      The book is a great read if you can find it. He tells about how and why Spiro Agnew supressed his book, and the scary part of it is, I believe the explanation. It's the sort of thing you think of happening today, not almost forty years ago. Geez, has it been that long???

      •  I'll read that (none)
        We only have 2 Harlan Ellison books, but they were both great.  I'll check it out.
