    Soon to be perusing the Encyclopedia Britannica 9th. edition 1879-1888, a full 25 volume set with tan leather covered boards. I SCORED FUCKING BIGTIME with this. I had an incomplete set of 12 vols. back in 1999 taht I sold in a moment of financial distress and weakness and have regretted it ever since. So I jumped on this like a nigger onto a bucket of KFC. Full set 24 vols. and the guide vol. also. All in pretty good condition, a few weak hinges and scuffed up covers but no missing pages, no scribbling inside, no missing covers or other stupid shit. This is a treasure. The 9th is known as the scholars edition and is considered to be literature. Written by a small army of true experts in the golden age of the white man before the PC police and communists fucked everything up. The 11th is OK. It's plenty popular but it was issued after the Univ. of Chicago Rockefeller operation got a hold of it in the 1890's. Anything after the 11th is better used as a doorstop or fire starters. I should get it in about a week. I'm stoked.

    Read them all except I think Cryptonomicon but maybe I've read it. I don't know if I could read Vonnegut again -- altho I think I've read everything he ever wrote, including a book by Kilgore Trout - who was actually Jose Francis Farmer I think.

    Yeah, pretty much. Whatever catches my interest. I'm interested in the history of money so I tend to read stuff in that area. Reading Ezra Pound got me interested in that. Or if I need to look something up rather than go to Kikeapedia I'll go to this instead.

    I have been reading Aryan Extra Terrestrial on the Phora.

    An excellent writer and deep thinker who is possessed by demonic entities (white).

    I disagree with his take on the Large Hadron Collider though.

    CERN in regard to the Norway Spiral? It's true, it was amped up at the time. But so was the EISCAT in Norway (reaching almost 1 billion watts!). I did summarily dismiss CERN as a red herring though and by association your contribution to the discussion at the time and for that I am sorry.
