Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I just burned through all of Trudi Canavan's work not long ago. She's got some interesting ideas in regards to world building and magic systems.

Weather is pretty nice here today. Maybe I'll sneak out later for a quick ride or run...

I need to read more fantasy stuff. I mostly do space sci-fi stuff, and so much of it is ruined lately by me know a lot more about orbital mechanics than the authors. Like, I couldn't stand Seveneves by Stephenson, like, at all. Yet everyone else loves it (well, most like the first two parts, I think the dolphin people part three is mostly panned).

I haven't read much sci-fi. Always leaned toward the fantasy. I grew up on Piers Anthony books. I'd mow through his series until they started getting so repetitive that I could predict what was going to happen.

Not sure if this post is really real or not.

Prof lets students choose own grades for 'stress reduction'

University is a joke.

I learned everything I needed at a 2 year tech college, and then I blew 10s of thousands of dollars to get a piece of paper that says I have a 4 year degree.

Maybe if you applied yourself more you would have learned more in the last two years.
