  •  I commented in your fine diary (4.00)
    about the weakening of interdimensional walls and our Kings Pester the Union Address. My theory is that the universes expansion is stretching the plaster.

    Top howevermany I list
    Stephenson
    Tom Robbins
    Robert Anton Wilson (Robbins mentor and a huge influence on my lack of a way of thinking. His books don't do his lifework full credit)
    Arthur Conan Doyle
    Deng Ming Dao
    Nick and Penny Slinger

    •  Ah, the Illuminati Trilogy! (4.00)
      I knew there was a reason besides your uncoventional dialect that I liked you - you have excellent taste in literature!  Good list, though I'm afraid I'm not familiar with Stephenson (I'll defintitely check him out), and I think I'd add Hemingway to the list.  Curse the man for chronic misogyny if you must, but he could say more in one paragraph than Steven King can say in five pages.

      Regarding the plaster, I'm reminded of something Steven Wright said: "It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it."

      See! There is Jackson, standing there like a stone wall!

      •  Oh my god, you're a Steven Wright fan! (4.00)
        Damn. Love that man.  Nobody ever seems to know who he is...

          "Ouch!"

          Progressives encourage dissent to improve society through constructive engagement. Conservatives encourage dissent to identify and silence the traitors.

            Do you know why there are so many people in the world?

            When people are making love, the union of their two souls, male and female coming together into one creates a magical field, where you can ask for whatever you want.

            99% per cent of people when making love cry out BABY BABY

            Next time try JEEP CHEROKEE, JEEP CHEROKEE

            [paraphrased of course}

            I refuse to tell any more jokes until you stop throwing things at me!
