Kinship?
Nah, man, it's 'cause I offered you free booze. Good free booze at that.

A) Dennis, I may have been a bit drunk at the time of posting. This you will excuse.

B) DD, I think then it may have been Halen. I'm not sure. Also, see A. Was it you that recommended Freakonomics? Thank you, if it was.

C) Have either of you, Dennis and Dave, considered that perhaps it was you that was drunk at the time of posting, and has since forgotten? I certainly admit my own potential faults, but neither would it exactly be a statistical anomaly on your part.

D) EVERYONE, you'll notice my initial focus on tangible things. We've had varying forms of "thank you" threads before - I was aiming for something a little new. As nice as it is to say "TAYLORBELLE WITH AN E, I LOVE YOUR QUAINT ENGLISH HUMOUR WITH A U, AND MOST ESPECIALLY WHEN IT INVOLVES VARYING HUMAN EXCRETIONS AND EXPULSIONS IN SHINY LONDON BARS," however this can go on indefinitely and will typically find itself winding back to where it started, both in participants and topic.

I know y'all got shit from each other - like music and movies and a new-found obsession with stained-glass sculptures.

Aim in that general direction with your posts and you will get not only a cookie, but also a very eloquent and sincere apology for never sending you that cookie. You may think of it as a bonus, if you like.

I didnt recommend freakonomics either. And I would be surprised if, even at my drunkest, Id recommended things Id never seen/heard.

I, on the other hand, am renowned for enthusiastically demanding people read/see/listen to things I have no idea what they are when I've been drinking.

Wasn't it Kara that recommended Freakonomics? I remember I said I was about to read it and Kara said omgitrocks or something.

I reccomend freakonomics.

Seriously. Search for it on the old forum -- there's a lot of me talking about it.

There's seriously a chapter about how Superman fucking ended the KKK. No joke. Superman totally hosed them.

THESE ARE HORRIBLE FALSE LIES.


You know, the longer this shit goes on the more I'm starting to wonder whether I've really spent the last few years slowly attributing all of Sam's references and recommendations to other people. How sad for you all. Really, DD, you need to see the machinist AND read freakonomics. Or at the very least, start telling me you did.

And thank you, Kara, for not only a freakonomics recommendation but also for everything ever written by Albert Camus, with which I have since become a bit twitchily obsessed.

I'm going to assume that you will also read or have read The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, by Oliver Sacks.

That's been sitting on my shelf for about a year now. I need to take a stab at actually picking it up one day.

That book made me ponder more deeply what it means to be a thinking, conscious human more than any philosophy tract.

I'm guessing it had something to do with the fact that a reporter infiltrated the Klan in Atlanta all undercover-like and gave away their secrets to the writers of a Superman radio show for kicks.
