    Starts with basically a parallel of brexit too which is amusing in its own way.

    My problem is that the cultures abilities are just so mind-boggling different to what most people can imagine, I dread how they will address this. The culture is capable to change a body any way they want.

    But I'll definitely watch it.

    I'm worried about how their portray Minds. It was always about the Minds, fuck the humans.

    Currently reading «The Fall» by Birger Amundsen. He lived and worked closely with Store Norske coal mining company in Spitsbergen as a journalist for most of his career life. Probably of little interest to most people here, but it gives a very detailed (and in some cases grotesque, with depictions of the many accidents) insight into coal mining life. Fascinating stuff.

    Just finished The Passage by Justin Cronin - kept me entertained throughout and I even finished it.

    Lately I've found that my patience with books get shorter and shorter, to the point where I start skimming, jumping or even stopping completely.
    Refreshing to find a book that held all these urges at bay.

    Now I've started Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky, a recommendation I actually picked up from Pewdiepie, believe it or not...

    The worrying thing here is how you were exposed to pewdiepie to pick up a recommendation.
