The Next Best 20 Minutes Of Your Life.I'm not real big on fiction these days, Terry Pratchett notwithstanding, and with a pile of books steadily growing, sometimes it can be difficult getting enthused about things.
My immediate reading matter is The Forsaken: An American Tragedy In Stalin's Russia. It is heartrending, and has reduced me to tears several times, and I'm still only 2/3 of the way through.
For those who think that communism, or any other sort of collectivism is a Good Thing, this is a good place to start your re-education.
Those with a bit of power or authority start exercising that because they know better than you, then that bit sort of gets bigger and bigger.
It can be seen here in a small way every day on my drive home.
I drive on the Eastlink, a toll road that is between 3 and 4 lanes across, and is beautiful to drive on.
The speed limit is 100, but a few too many years of draconian speeding laws and fines have left the driving public often a bit too timid to actually reach that level, and most days I am lucky if I get to 95.
I'll stop now, as that rant is for another day, and I leave you with the 1812 Overture.
I grew up exposed to a broad range of music, including both country and western, and this was an especial favourite.
I did find the complete video on what looks to be the Russian version of youtube, but I don't read Russian and couldn't find any way to embed this.
