More About Us

The attack of the flying Book Memes

We were passed this survey by Phin of Phin's Blog.

We here at Eyes On The Ball do not like to post about who we really may be, since there are crazy wackos out there, like Risa Brye (not her real name), the girl this post and this post were both based on, who we are physically afraid of and we might need a restraining order against. Think Mara from the Shield (but with x3 weight, x10 sense of entitlement, x100 insanity), and is part of the Chicago improv community.

However, we will take a chance on you, our gentle readers.

You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
The Book Of Flame Retardant Samples.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional Character?
Minmae from Robotech, and Princess from Battle of the Planets. Not books I know but I don't have an active enough imagination. I can barely stand fiction, I prefer non-fiction and get my fiction fix from faster media.

The last book you bought is?
I bought a bunch from Amazon at once, they are:
The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. I read Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors which turned me on to this book. Pretty amazing how closely much animal behavior parallels humans, like xenophobia and even homophobia!
When I say No, I feel guilty
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Positive Dog Training I read this stuff but I still let Pluto stay in charge.
Stealing Elections by John Fund. Details the election fraud we have caught so far, such as recently in Milwaukee and Seattle. Surprise, most outright fraud is committed by Democrats.
Anti-Americanism by John Francois Revell. He has many examples of how the French press and government (as well as most of western europe) has hated America for 50 years, and it has nothing to do with any particular administration.
A Brief History of Time: the updated 10th anniversary edition I am into cosmology and astronomy.

The last book you read?
Rogue Warrior By Richard Marcinko. It is amazing how many stupid people put fears of negative press ahead of the lives of US men in uniform.

What are you currently reading?
Runelords book one by David Farland. Not the greatest fantasy, but it is pretty interesting. Your "magic power" is donated to you by vassals, for instance, people donate their strength, eyesight, voice, etc. They lose it and you gain it. You then have to protect these people because if they die you lose your power. Good people will take less enhancements since it's bad for the giver. Bad guys take more and extort them from people. What's even better? There's only three books, not 19.

Next book is The Lance Thrower, book eight of The Camulod Chronicles which is an awesome series on King Arthur as a real person, plus loads of history on the fall of the Roman Empire.

Five books I would take to a deserted island.
These are pretty self explanatory, I am totally serious. Screw that enlightenment crap, I want to live and get off the damn island.
The SAS Survival Handbook
The SAS Mental Endurance Handbook
Tom Brown's Guide to Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants
The Science And Art of Tracking
The Bible with both Protestant and Catholic books plus annotations, just to cover my butt.

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and Why?
Mars because I know him in real life and it would be interesting to get perspective on something from someone who is not a conservative-home-protection-device-lover, and figured well I don't know I would bug him.

I'll think of someone else soon I gotta get some work done around here!
