    Some people think I'm Gamma, so I'm going to take that as permission to post stupid shit.

    I recommend turning your room into a fort. Make it really pimped out with different sections (entertaining section, lounging section, etc.). Put a TV with old gaming equipment in there and relive your childhood. Put signs in front about who may and may not enter.

    I also recommend taking a really hot bath and enjoying a frozen mixed drink at the same time.

    Next time you're sad, take some scented body lotion and rub it into your skin. Give yourself a pedicure. Nothing makes me feel better than pampering myself. Also, do a Google or Youtube search for "cute things" or "baby animals."

    I recommend this album: Dogs ? Nina Nastasia ? Listen and discover music at Last.fm

    Write letters to strangers and put them where anybody can find them. They can contain secrets or whatever you like. I like writing something that I think will make somebody happy.

    Aaaaand, that's all I have for now.

    Yeah, I didn't know that would happen. I just wanted to give some fun recommendations.

    idk if you like scifi dyslexic, but this is one of my favorite books... it's a post-human "romp" through the future solar system set against a backdrop of us (as a species) going through the next phase of evolution (through genetics vs. technology) on to the stage past that. Has some very interesting ideas in it, like a woman who adds body parts to herself until her "body" becomes the an entire mined out asteroid inhabited by clones of herself (in original human form) and a man she once used as a puppet (in the literal sense) to get the power to accomplish this. I highly recommend it.

    I like modern country music. I'm sorta out of date, but I like Shania Twain, Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley, etc. Seems more "real" to me, and I identify with it a whole lot more than any other type of music.

    Ditto for

    Walter E Williams: website, townhall column, cato page, .


    Milton Friedman: .

    Thomas Sowell: townhall column,



    Also the book Genes, Peoples, and Languages by Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza.

    Also the old classic Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbott.


    Since you've repeatedly expressed affinity for Scandinavia, scandinavian music may be of interest, like these guys:



    Gasolin', Danish

    Shu bi dua, Danish




    Oystein Sunde, Norwegian

    Vommol Spelemannslag, Norwegian

    Ivar Medaas, Norwegian




    Harry Brandelius, Swedish - exceptionally precise Swedish enunciation

    Lapp-Lisa, Swedish, religious
