Ok, so seriously: Was that really Thomas Pynchon posting those crazy TCoL49 explanations and Shakespeare conspiracy theories and Willy Wonka blueberry fetishism shit here?

>Had the error resulted in higher overall test scores rather than lower test scores, one has to wonder if the error would have ever been detected in the first place. Why does Word keep telling me a question mark belongs there? Is it bullshitting me or is it actually correct?

Hey /lit/ I don't normally read poems but I was watching an old episode of the simpsons and Grandpa reads an excerpt from the poem If by Rudyard Kipling. I decided to read the whole thing and I really enjoyed it, so I started looking at other random poems and I really like reading them. What are some of your favorite poem?

i'm reading john gardner's art of fiction at the moment and this is one of the writing exercises he mentions (http://english119.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/john-gardner-the-art-of-fiction.pdf page 46). i thought it would be fun to see what you guys come up with. i'm trying it myself now. describe a barn as seen by a man whose son has just been killed. do not mention the war, the son or the death or the man who does the seeing. it should be about 250 words.

P-p-p-post your work /lit/! Rate and get rated! Critique and get critiqued! Don't rate or critique, suck a dick nigga! Everyone, one and all, welcome! First came the customary, polite greeting, the one that indicated that everything was pleasant, they were doing their best, things-are-bad-right-now-but-they-won’t-be-if-you-put-your-nose-to-the-grind-and-get-on-with-it style of greeting. Alex had only just recently begun to dislike these type of greetings. They were what you expected, of course, but after a while of being on the dole, he’d grown tired of them. “Hello Mr. Redford, can you confirm your date of birth please?” What he’d rather have had was for the person behind the desk to say something along the lines of “this is a bit fucked up innit?” or “Why han’t you got a job yet, you lazy cunt?” At least that would have made him laugh. At least it would have been more to the point. “23rd of August, 1988.” He’d been signing on now for just over a year. A percentage of his life. Not even a decimal percentage. An entire, whole number percentage. The thought depressed him and he had to refocus his attention to catch the end of the sentence: “-you been looking for work?” “Sorry?” “And how have you been looking for work?” Slower this time, trained. He listed the ways he’d been looking for work. “And have you brought your job diary with you?” He said he had, and produced a scrappy piece of paper from his jeans. Handed CVs out, applied for jobs online, the usual stuff. The person behind the desk signed it and gave it back. “See you in a week.” It was a welcome relief at first. The news had come that the chain had gone bankrupt and the staff were to be laid off. Alex had pretended to be gutted at the news, as if the very prospect of no longer rolling up to work whenever they had called him in was going to be a bad thing. The manager, James, was very apologetic about the whole thing but Alex didn’t know why. It wasn’t James’ fault the chain had gone under. He was losing his job too. There were statements about “changes in consumption” and “market shifts” but none of it mattered. The fact was that nobody wanted to rent DVDs anymore. Plain as. Clear as crystal. Internet services were now paving the way for the consumers entertainment needs and it was hard to argue against them. “The customer always knows best”. If it meant a quick stint on the dole then so be it.

Guys, I need to talk Dune. I saw it recommended very often so I decided to read it. I really liked it but I'm not sure I really "got" it. It's the first sci-fi book I've read. I'm normally your average fantasy-guy and didn't mind any of the sci-fi elements at all, but I am unsure if I understand why this is "the Lord of the Rings of sci-fi". What do you think? Why exactly is it so good? I sometimes feel like I struggle to really "get" books like some people around here seem to do.

Okay, so I just finished Good Omens for the umpteenth time... and I wanted to know if you could give me suggestions on authors like Gaiman and Pratchett. I'm about to cracked into The Stand again, so it may be a while before I get to it, but I do so love new experiences. :) (The picture, in case anyone was confused, is Anne Frank Zappa.)

Am I the only one who thinks that alot of modern philosophers were strongly influenced by buddhism. I mean we know about the connection between Schopenhauer and Buddhism but even Kant sounds alot like Buddha to me. (his antimonies are exaclty the same answers Buddha gave his disciples) and there are also alot of similarities between Wittgensteins Tractatus and the Dharma Wittgenstein says his tractatus is a ladder that you discard once you used it, Buddha says his dharma is a boat that you discard once you used it. He says that there is no "I" and buddhism says the same. That all things are interconnected and his view of language and the world reminds me alot of karma.

The Shittiest Fantasy Authors

R.A.Salvatore Every book reads like its written by a highschooler, but with dwarves and elves and magic out of nowhere. Pacing is shit, its just a long ass journey, no matter what book, with romance and "how I feel" with some random encounters here and there. And don't start with the Mary Sue bullshit.

Anyone taking part in Stoic Week? It's been neat to hear modern scholars, neuroscientists and psychotherapists discuss the merits of the philosophy. Here's the Stoic Week blog if anyone's interested http://blogs.exeter.ac.uk/stoicismtoday/stoic-week-2013/
