It's interesting to see how huxley and orwell's idea of a dystopia differs.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

The weird part is Huxley's is more plausible at this point.

I'm sure it'll be the way in all the world in a few more decades.

Erskine better get a Shanahammer.

Probably.

Can't comment on that, I assume he's the guy that just threw the elbow stuff was mentioning on fb

Gervais is another defenseman that Tampa almost killed and the Flyers are resurrecting(see Carle and Mez).

I'm surprised rinaldo beat erskine decisively, allegedly. I just remember gervais playing like crap on the islanders

He beat Hendricks, Gervais was a solid top 4 guy until that last year on Long Island and Tampa.

It feels weird to see these book recommendations, 'cause a few of them (mostly the ones Tuor's mentioned) are books that were required reading in my high school classes--especially for that one AP class I was in. o-o Same for some of the books Whatis mentioned reading.

Makes me a little nostalgic, I suppose.

Yeah, I skipped out on AP English and I went to a city school so the reading list was a little more leaned into some African American writings.

Of the books I suggested I only read one of them in highschool. The rest were on my time or in college

Most of what I read, I've read on my own either through buying books, borrowing from friends or my sister's high school readings.

@Whatis: Huh, I see. o3o What sort of books were they?

@Tuor: Really? It's kinda funny, though it makes sense, given that AP classes were supposed to prep you for college and all. I dunno if I'll end up having to re-read certain books, lol.

Well thinking about it and talking with a few friends Black Like Me, Native Son, Black Boy, Raisin in the Sun, Their Eyes Were Watching God. The more traditional stuff was Animal Farm, The Pearl, A Separate Peace, The Time Machine, The Metamorphosis. And I'm sure there was another half dozen individual books, a few dozen short stories, a few dozen poems and 3 or 4 Shakespeare plays.

Haha, didn't read any of those either. Geez, what the hell. I can barely remember what books we did read. I remember The Chrysalids, and Brave New World. Other than that I can't recall. Oh, read The Outsiders.
