    Well, that sucks. Want to rebound together? :winky:

    Can we talk about A Song of Ice and Fire all the time? We could discuss Yeats as well, if you're up for it.

    Have you read and did you greatly enjoy any Zelazny? I'm trying to determine if I can trust your opinion of ASoIaF before I decide to start reading it.

    If I may
    I read the giant Amber book, and I thought it was amazing. If that therefore disqualifies my opinion on fantasy, so be it.

    No, see Zelazny was one of my favorite authors. Shame he died before completing the Amber series but I would highly recommend you pick up some of his short story anthologies. He really has a gift for short story telling. I highly recommend the book, "The Doors of His Face, The Lamp of His Mouth" Some great short stories in there including one of my all time favorite short stories, A Rose For Ecclesiastes.
    We don't have that at work (just checked the store inventory) but I will order it. I wasn't sure how much I would like Amber when I picked up that giant volume, but I couldn't put it down. I hadn't read Martin's stuff at that point, but I would still consider Zelazny to be one of the best. There was another book of his that I picked up, but it was kind of more modern fantasy, which doesn't get me going as much.

    Not all of his stuff is good though, Zelazny published some stuff that was remarkably forgettable considering what he was capable of but I suspect they were written before he hit his stride. If it's not in current publication, it's probably not worth reading.

    On my way home from the University campus today, I was blaring the 300 soundtrack from my shitty Tempo, windows down.

    There was a group of chatty sophist bitches; you know the type. Fluffy boots, oranged make-up skin, slightly teased hair, cellphones, bubble gum, and enough lip gloss to glaze a holiday ham.

    Returns a King (track 4, for those who are curious) began to play, heralding my approach. These snooty bitches were congregated right in the centre of the parking lot, proving a hindrance to my leaving. The clouds seemed to part, and Zeus himself shone light upon a massive puddle, directly adjacent to said bitches. Time slowed. My wheels seemed to spin in place as I brought my mighty Ford chariot around the bend, as the chorus reached full timbre. A crescendo of sound and screams mingled into one shining moment as a tidal wave of dirty water was brought down upon their ranks. They were bested and shamed, reduced to the true filth that they were beneath their lacquered appearances. Heads turned; onlookers gawked.

    My mighty Spartan laughter echoed from within my vehicle as I sped away, roaring in amusement.

    so you are a douchebag is the lesson here?

    Well, I think there would be a surge in the number of people attending religious services; most would buy new Sunday clothes so that they look good for Judgement Day.

    Gotta look snazzy in the Lord's house.

    Well clothing and clothing accessories would take a dive, along with lip gloss. Cosmetics would likely see a slight decrease in demand.

    However money spent on gifts demanded by these girls from boys and their parents would be redirected to other commodities and savings.

    An increase in savings causes an increase in capital available to businesses. Increased capital means increased output.

    Therefore if TFS was to run over all those girls, select parts of the economy would see a decrease. However the economy as a whole would see either no change or a slight increase.
