Re: Haruki Murakami

However, of late, I feel he has become too commercial. I mean, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman ? Most authors don't have their "unfinished drafts"/"only half-good fragments" published until after they die. Also, I recently read a story that he'd written for Harper's magazine, Chanc...

Re: Degrees of Normality

The last two posts appear to be missing the point that has been made, which is that while an objective standard of normality is a meaningless concept, it is still possible to measure normality relative to any given group of people - and that is in fact what the OP appears to be asking about. I agre...

Re: Degrees of Normality

In fact, which facts about a person's life would skew the index farther one way ore the other? That might be one problem if using a unidimensional scale. Another problem is that, to a certain extent, everyone is "normal" in their own subculture. For example, a high school student who play...

If you don't mind getting up early, you can try jogging before starting your day. It's a good way to integrate exercise into your schedual.

Good, but cannot compare to MORTAL KOMBAT. I couldn't watch Braveheart after that.

Musical Phones (Merged : Interesting Ringtones)

What's the best music you've heard come out of a phone? Well, not necessarily best, but most suited?

I would have to say hearing the old school Zelda theme on a hold line for EB Games made my day.

Re: Zombiepocalypse preparedness scale

Weight as a measure of fitness is tricky since muscle weighs more than fat. So after weeks of exercise, you might not weigh less, you might even weigh more, which happened to a friend of mine. (Assuming eating habbits are constant) In preparation for the zombie appocalyspe, I would suggest martial a...

Re: Haruki Murakami

I've read Kafka by the Shore, The Wind Up Bird Chronicles and Sputnik Sweetheart. I thing I love most about Murikami is that reading him feels like a dream. It starts out realistically (at least, in the books I've read), and then this seperate reality is insinuated. The inexplicable happens, and nev...

Life is wierd

So I was sitting in my Organic Chem lecture a few weeks ago, doing the student thing, when someone in the back stands up and asks the prof a question: "This is might not be entirely relevant, but what do you know about the chemistry of love?" "Not a lot, I'm afraid." Then, the st...
