37. Doorways in the Sand
by Roger Zelazny. Neat sci-fi story about a perpetual college student who unwittingly merges with an alien sentient "computer". Oh hell, I gave away the ending! Well, not really...

24. To continue the non-sequitur nature of this thread
Have you heard about the temporary paint you can apply to your car? I think I read about it in Autoweek; the idea is that you can do something outrageous (like flames on your commuter car) and wash it off come Monday morning.

and wash them off on the weekend.

35. I've been thinking about a bookarts project
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 01:50 PM by Book Lover
I'd love to make a non-flammable edition of a controversial book, and set up an exhibit where flames are licking the bottom of it, but it won't burn...

Also, I think it was Minsky who burned a copy of The Satanic Verses and created a reliquary art piece. I recall something about it being stolen...

44. Do you really want to hear about IpCo and other paper companies
Actually, I'd bore you to death.... Just come to the show when I get this idea off the ground :-)

You remind me of the end of Fahrenheit 451; people simply memorized their books, and were known by the book's title. For some like me, that would be a utopia :-)

46. There are 'isms'
communism, socialism, Darwinism, alcoholism......That just don't go away no matter how hard folks try to pretend. Kind of a cryptic joke on my part.
