Paperback Paradise

quote [ The world's #1 used book store. Come visit us at the edge of eternity. ]

I know it's just a twitter link, but I enjoyed it.

Personality and its Transformations

quote [ Collection of lectures by Professor Jordan B. Peterson of the University of Toronto. ]

Found via Reddit, but I am finding this series of lectures absolutely fascinating. Peterson is engaging and interesting and so far each lecture is quite accessible, even for laypeople. Looks like these are 200 level psychology lectures. I've only watched the first three, but as I said, just fascinating.

They're all free and this is the 2015 version. I suppose you could watch the 2014 version as well. There's a host of other lectures, talks and discussions with Peterson on his Youtube page as well.

Star Wars Ring Theory

quote [ How George Lucas used ring composition to reach a level of storytelling sophistication in his six-part saga that is unprecedented in cinema history. ]

I guess this one is only for Star Wars fans and/or movie buffs. If you outright hate the prequels, you may think this is just jibber jabber. But if you have even one midichlorian in your heart, you might find it interesting.

Maybe it gives Lucas too much credit... maybe he doesn't get enough?

RCMP and the truth about safe injection sites

quote [ The Mounties were set to publicly acknowledge the benefits of projects like the Insite facility. Then they backed away. ]

Another attempt at RPGin'!

So... we've had a few failed attempts, but I'd be willing to GM a game of either Rifts or the new Star Wars RPG, as those are the books I have. (Well, I still also have the TMNT RPG, which uses the same system as Rifts, so that's in play too, if anyone is desperate for some mutant animal RPGing)

A Letter From Jesus

quote [ Your children (and mine) were created for friendship with Christ. They were brought into this world by God the Father because He desired that His Son, Jesus, should have them as His friends. It?s not the other way around. God did not put your children here for themselves or for other people. He put them here, first and foremost, for His Son. ]

Creepy as fuck.

Serial Podcast

quote [ The physical evidence against Adnan Syed was scant - a few underwhelming fingerprints. So aside from cell records, what did the prosecutors bring to the jury, to shore up Jay's testimony? Sarah weighs all the other circumstantial evidence they had against Adnan, including curious behavior, a disconcerting note, and an unexplained mid-afternoon phone call. ]

I heard about this podcast via another podcast a couple weeks ago and listened to the first four episodes within a day or two. It's now up to episode six and I'm completely hooked. It's pretty fascinating.

The Whiteness Project

quote [ The Whiteness Project is a multiplatform investigation into how Americans who identify as ?white? experience their ethnicity. ]

Based on that sentence, you might think this has merit. Watch a few of the vids and change your mind. This is fucking embarrassing.

Mount Ontake erupts

quote [ An eruption of Japan's Mount Ontake volcano killed at least 36 people over the weekend, sending a cloud of ash and rocks toward unsuspecting hikers who had no warning of the tragedy about to occur. ]
