Superscientific girl-on-girl action!

A couple of George Griffith’s books are posted on the Ebook page. Griffith’s works are, in a word, RIPPING YARNS.

I’m especially recommending THE WORLD MASTERS because the female characters are what really drive the plot. It’s effectively one long catfight culminating in an all-girl shootout at the Magnetic North Pole.

THE WORLD MASTERS at Project Gutenberg.

THE WORLD MASTERS free for Kindle™.

Standard old book warning: THE WORLD MASTERS contains racist and sexist ideas and language.

"She hated Chrysie Vandel with the whole-hearted hatred of her impetuous and masterful Bourbon spirit; she looked upon her as one of her ancestors would have looked upon an usurper or an invader—something to be abolished or suppressed, at any price and by any means."

WOTY!

The American Dialect Society has announced its word of the year for 2011.

The word of the year is "occupy".

occupy: verb, noun, and combining form referring to the Occupy protest movement.

The word voted most likely to succeed is "cloud".

cloud: online space for the large-scale processing and storage of data.

So here’s the pepper spraying cop that’s been making its way through the occupied cloud.

Is the pepper spray cop still funny? My cable’s out.

Is it warm on this planet or is it just me?

Perihelion! Wear loose, light-colored clothing, and a hat. Sunscreen wouldn’t hurt, either.
