It burns

A transcript of the first half of Fahrenheit 9/11 has been posted on the Internet. While Michael Moore is more of rhetoricist than documentarian, I feel that everyone should go and see the side of America's story that no-one in the US Administration or media will tell.

UPDATE: Part two can be found here.

Love Story

"Every adult life could be said to be defined by two great love stories. The first - the story of our quest for sexual love - is well known and well-charted. The second - the story of our quest for love from the world - is a more secret and shameful tale. And yet this second love story is no less intense than the first."

The Real Adrian Mole

Slushkiller is an enormous essay about writers' reactions to rejection letters from publishing houses. As someone who has received quite a few rejection letters when jobhunting, I'm shocked as to how personally some of these people take it.

I submit for your approval:
What bothered you the most about this letter?
She looked forward to seeing it in print?! Yeah, well, me too, baby! And if it’s such a wonderful #!#@#! novel, then why did you reject it? Hey, I’ve been dumped before — I can handle it.

I would hate to be in a relationship with this stable individual.

Shuffling forward

Twenty-eight years on the planet today, though some would say that I'm really from Mars.

Perfect excuse for a curry I'd say.

Ohio? Ohio? I'm a city in Ohio? There's nothing in Ohio.

Take the quiz:
"Which American City Are You?"

You are blue collar and Rock n Roll. You Work hard and party harder.


Why doesn't it look as tasty as the menu?

Ever wonder why photographs of food on packaging never looks as good as the finished product? This post on the Motley Fool goes some way to answering that question.
