Why is the penis shaped like that? ... and other reflections on being human, by someone by the name of Jesse Bering.

You don't want to start an argument with me about this type of writing. You seriously don't.

I have found that the likes of Snow and Anthony Powell make great escapist reading.

EDIT: Where did you find the picture in your sig? I believe it's from a Flemish Television show (Man Bijt Hond), no?

Bah, I've got you guys beat. The book I'm reading right now is quite literally the epitome of escapism/wish fulfillment. I don't even know why I'm reading it.

Been aware of his work for a while, but got the idea of sigging him from... uh... some noob (now who was that? Red avatar IIRC) ... having another one of his in their sig.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Dear god why? Argentinean politics in the 1950s is probably the least accessible subject ever.

in an attempt to simultaneously display the best and worst of tastes, I'm approaching 50% done with War & Peace (P/V translation) and poking around a pdf of Fifty Shades of Grey.

That's what makes it fascinating! I don't understand Peronism even a little bit.
