Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Here's a better question:

What books/comics/magazines will someone buy for me? Weeping

Many verses are like silver threads
tied on the chimes of the stars-
if you pull them,
a silver peal makes the horizon vibrate.

RE: What Books/Comics/Magazines Have You Bought Lately?
I've always wanted to write a children's book. Before with college I couldn't find the time to write one but now that I have the time I don't know what the hell to write or how to even go about it. So I got the following for a little inspiration:

The House At Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
The Giver by Lois Lowry
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'engle
Pooh I got cuz I read the first book and loved it. The other two I juts grabbed. Figured they'd be good examples since they got awards and they were cheaper than the other hardback ones.

RE: What Books/Comics/Magazines Have You Bought Lately?
II'm a very slow reader (but have over 90% comprehension, so fuck you skimmers), and can't remember the last book I bought...

I tend to borrow more than buy.

Last comic book I bought was the Beano... way back in 1998. It cost 50p then, costs a whole £1.50 now... Robbin' bastards.

Last book I read was 'iRobot' by Isaac Asimov. Before that the whole 'Lord of the Rings/Hobbit' series, and Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time'.

Now I'm reading a few... Neil Young's and Stephen Hawking's autobiographies, Carl Sagan's 'Cosmos', and Charles Darwin's 'The Origin Of Species'.

I won't slave for beggar's pay, likewise gold and jewels,
But I would slave to learn the way to sink your ship of fools

All magazines I tend to read are health/fitness related or having to do with earth science. I'm boring I guess/10.

March to the beat of your own drum, even if you're marching alone.

That is a very narrow way of looking at things. Culture is as important as science to a well rounded person.
