There are lots of ultra marathons. Ultras are longer than standard 42 km (around 26 mi) marathons. I know there are longer than 300 km ultra marathons that last for 5 days :)

Feigðarflótti has now been printed, and will be shipped tomorrow. I will pick the copies up on Thursday morning.

I will then deliver them to the local bookstore and supermarkets, and start the process of sending reward copies to my backers.
I'll notify your next of kin... that you sucked!

Well, hopefully more than I hope for, because I'm not known for my optimism.  :)

I have the copies, and they should already be up for sale in some places. I'm heading out to get them in the supermarket, the schools, and then I'll have to spend the rest of the day signing and arranging copies for those who funded the startup campaign.

I love the font you used :D

Here, it almost looks like I'll need a boat to get home, not a car :o
It hasn't stopped raining since last night, really heavy, and it's only getting worse. They're setting up the flood defenses at work, although I think it's more to use them at least once, justify the money ;D

I've got the day off.
Yay for waking up (a bit) later, mooching around in pyjamas and lunch with a friend ;D

Satisfying story of the day. Around last month I was scammed of about $80 by a tuition institution, who send me to a mother who didn't actually have time for her son to take tuition classes. I gave up trying to go after my cash back then, depressed and defeated.

Now, a month later, I've just started to garner an interest in the subject of law (getting interested to maybe join law school) and went to read some thai laws regarding acts of fraudulence. I messaged this institution, quoting this clause of the law and telling them that I've consulted with my friend who was a lawyer and that in this case I could sue them for fraudulence. I told them that if they didn't refund my $80 they can be prepared to go to the court.

The institution try to refuse it at first, and tried to come up with excuses (I did try to minimize my losses by doing somethings against the institutions law, albeit very minor ones). In the end, however, they are afraid enough to agree to refund back half of my payment.

That is story of how I've gotten my $40 back and a feel of righteous revenge that felt so damnnn good!  :D *dances around while beating my chest like King Kong to a merry tune*
