I love that book.

Welcome back to the Philly neighborhood. =)

Bluegrass Poet

A passage worthy of Pratchett himself. Well written, Lance.

"Sheer terror is a great motivator for maintaining focus"

You're twisting my melon, man...


You wouldn't think the direction matters, but it does. My issue is with telephones and ear choice. If I listen with my left ear, I happily converse and follow the interchange easily. But if I try to listen with my right, suddenly it's as if I took off my glasses and can't properly "see" the person on the other end of the phone. (And, yes, it does feel like blindness, rather than deafness - conversely, when I am not wearing my glasses, I find it hard to listen to people properly.)

The wiring of the human mind is a strange, strange thing.
