"...region of older rocks called the arc basement, or frontal arc, which should not be confused with the forearc region. In island arcs, the arc basement is a shallow marine platform or an emergent region of older rocks. In continental arcs, it is a continental platform of older rocks that stands 1 to 5 km above sea level. Most island arcs consist of volcanos that have a relatively consistent elevation of 1 to 2 km above sea level, regardless of the elevation of the arc basement. In contrast, the elevation of volcanoes in continental arcs depends on the elevation of the basement; in this setting, volcanoes consistently rise above 3 km above the basement."

Cut the meat into 2 cm cubes, peel and dice the onions. Heat oil in a sauce-pan and fry the onions and meat. Peel and chop the tomatoes and add to the meat. Peel the garlic and crush with a little salt. Add to the meat. Halve the chilli, slice it very thinly and add to the pan."

I had two books right next to each other the same distance from me. So I just did one of each.

I lie smoldering in my bag for the next couple of hours, really thinking that if I can get out of this tree, I won't have the least problem taking out my new neighbor. My instinct had been to flee, not fight. But obviously this person's a hazard. Stupid people are dangerous. And this one probably doesn't have much in the way of weapons while I've got this excellent knife.

The Sensualist. What marks these types is not their love of pleasure but their overactive senses. Sometimes they show this quality in their appearance–their interest in fashion, color, style. But sometimes it is more subtle: because they are so sensitive, they are often quite shy, and will shrink from standing out or being flamboyant. You will recognize them by how responsive they are to their environment, how they cannot stand a room without sunlight, are depressed by certain colors, or excited by certain smells. They happen to live in a culture that deemphasizes sensual experience (except perhaps for the sense of sight). And so what the Sensualist lacks is precisely enough sensual experiences to appreciate and relish.

–The Art of Seduction: Page 159; 1pp, Robert Greene


Well. I guess there is some sort of truth to this game.

"In this city, gentlemen," said Mr. Slant. "the facts are never what they seem. Take care of the dog, and...others will look after you. There are plans afoot. Who can say what really happened? People are easily confused, and here I speak as one who has spent countless centuries in courtrooms. Apparently, they say, a lie can run around the world before the truth has got its boots on. What an obnoxious little phrase, don't you think? So...do not panic, all will be well. And do not be stupid either. My...clients have long memories and deep pockets. Other killers can e hired. Do you understand me?" He snapped the catches on his case. "Good day to you."

-The Truth, Sir Terry Pratchett

I am apparently a calculating, manipulative, rich piece of evil.

"Relatively few injuries occur in Judo given that it is a contact sport. Most of them are not particularly serious and nearly all of them could be avoided with care. The real cause of injury is often something other than Judo itself. Lack of experience, for example. leads to knocks and abrasions among beginners; their natural clumsiness gets the better of them unless Dojo discipline is strictly maintained. Likewise lack of fitness takes its toll in terms of sprains and muscular discomfort among players who insist on competing beyond their present level of fitness. Perhaps the most common cause of all is insufficient time spent loosening up before practice. Judo possesses a range of stretching exercises that is the envy of other sports; these should be performed religiously before practice so that pain can be saved for when it really is unavoidable."

-The Judo Manual: Page 159; Tony Reay and Geoffrey Hobbs

Well I guess I neglect my stretches a bit

Nothing Feels Good: Punk Rock, Teenagers, and Emo by Andy Greenwald


"I know it," Geoff says. "Sometimes I feel like they're making reparations or something. Look, I'm not really concerned about the cred aspect of it. But I am concerned about what I see as an important cultural shift ---when a major company steps in and takes the power away from the kids in a scene, when they co-opt an established movement. I think you have to be pragmatic about things. I know for a fact that what we did more for the DIY scene after signing with Victory than before. We've always tried to avoid Clear Channel and stick with indie promoters. Sometimes I feel weird about the fact that it's hard for us to play basements now, but the truth is we can't anymore because we'd shut them down. This band has exceeded any expectations I ever had for it and did so awhile ago. So at this point all I can do is try and figure out the best decision I can make for us in the moment. Do things in a way that seems right. Not limit anything, but always try to be honest and positive." He pauses. "Who knows where this can go from here?"


hmm, don't think that describes me at all beyond having outgrown my roots

MFW only book not holding speakers up that's on my desk is the FLCL omnibus, and there is no dialogue on page 159.

Although there is a cool picture~
