NEW YORK, NY – US Airways flight 1549 made an emergency water landing in the Hudson River just after 3:30pm yesterday afternoon. Initial reports suggesting the plane struck a flock of geese have been dismissed with the discovery of new evidence confirming that the plane struck and killed the religious icon Flying Spaghetti Monster.
I’m actually not a very good book reviewer, mostly because I… I have no idea why, actually. I’m just not. You don’t hear very many people matter-of-factly answer Because I just suck at it to that particular question, which is a shame. There’d be less time wasted if more people did.
Well, despite my sucking at book reviewing, I recommend that you pick up Harry Turtledove’s The Man with the Iron Heart if you were or are at all relieved at the way that the Surge turned out. Or if you have a Lefty friend whose perception you want to test.
#1 on the list is The String Quartet Tribute to Limp Bizkit.
This is the one. This is the album that should really just signal the end of music. Someone with a real background in music had to arrange these songs. A classically trained cellist had to read sheet music titled “N 2 Gether Now.” At one point in rehearsals, a real-live conductor probably had to say “Okay, gang, let’s take it from ‘Now I know y’all be lovin’ this shit right here.'” Where does music go from here? Where do any of us go from here? How can anyone go on in life knowing that this album exists? Anyone? Hello?!
Update: Professor Caleb from comments is disputing my argument on the teleportation thing, and he’s even got a diagram, so it must be Science!;
I personally think that the entire thing can be explained away mathematically if you assume that the thing being teleported is defined as being one-dimensional. Yes, yes, yes: “assume the cow is a sphere.” Clearly I need to read Fear of Physics.
