John Wyndham - The Chrysalids ... since this place seems to be full of teenagers and very young adults with a lof of them SF-fans, there you go. Beautiful story about being different, misunderstood. The end is a bit disappointing but the setting is very interesting. I'd recommend it to serious SF fans and to teenagers who somehow feel they don't "belong." It's a classic too.

That guy from The Bible, Jesus something. People like this one for different reasons: Some because he was so cliché, others because they generally dislike hippies, even others because he took all their sins with them or something to that effect. Anyway, nice story.

Can't wait to check it out. Need to finish reading the Innkeeper story first though. (I'm about 1/3 through with it yet and enjoying it very much, hope there's a way to turn the barmaids into prostitutes, especially the youngest one)
A few years away from this place and when I come back, nice stuff awaits me. Thank you EndMaster!

Great! I've now read about 15 of his novels and two or three short story anthologies. At the moment I'm trying to get into his very late work, though I'm not sure whether I'm really ready for it. I think I like the entertaining novels that only hint at PKD's experiences more than the very heavy, openly autobiographic material.
My favourites are at the same time the ones I would first recommend to a new reader: Eye in the Sky, The World Jones Made, Flow my Tears the Policeman said (all early works).

Is Trolling a Sport? on 8/7/2012 3:48:34 PM
Is Trolling a sport? Good question. I would say it depends on the motives. If you do it to pursue a (more or less-) hidden agenda, for political or economical goals, then no, that's agitation. If you troll just for kicks, because you enjoy the fun of it, then no, that qualifies as a hobby.
But if you take an athlete's approach to it and do it all the time, train very hard to excell as much as you can, sacrifice everything for the cause, maybe even your social life! and really do it professionally in the strictest sense of the word (e.g., for a living, as your job or replacement for a job).... I mean if you're holding multiple world records it must be a sport, and trolling athletes deserve at least as much respect and pussy as say basket ball or boxing stars.

Ground Zero! Just don't pick the path where you lonesomly wander the badlands, it's not really family-friendly. Get yourself either shelter or go to the city, you won't regret it.
