Trying to work up the courage to start Knife of Dreams, but that 90+ page prologue looks incredibly uninteresting...  ???

Go for it! Knife of Dreams has some really great scenes. Some of my favorite points in the story, actually.

Donald Trump still leads in polls for the Republican Party's Presidential candidate, so we're not in too great a shape over here in U.S.land.

[politics]This scares me, and I don't scare easy. I really can't comprehend how he has gathered so much support after the things he says.[/politics]

Just took the dogs for a walk, and @Saurus noticed some people have christmas trees in their windows. With the christmas lights on. It's September.

So they found running water on the surface of Mars! Really cool discovery, especially because it makes manned missions to Mars a hell of a lot more viable. Can't wait until they learn more.

Very exciting.

Also, if you haven't read this Wait But Why post about SpaceX and Mars colonization, I highly recommend it!

temp range of -50 to 130 degrees centigrade. I would suggest they leave it well alone. Any microbe that can live in those conditions making its way back to earth would be a bit more troublesome than Japanese bindweed or cane toads.
Oh we have plenty of those on Eartyh too, called extremophiles :)
They live in the volcanic vents under the ocean, for example.

I love science.  8)

I hope I am still alive when we colonize mars. I'll do what I must to secure a ticket to the New New World.

Oh, but if all the students went armed, this would never happen.  :P

Instead, we'd have inter-class/clique warfare and frat houses would become armed camps. Oh goody.

Concealed carry just went into affect today on Texas public  colleges.

I just don't understand the need for concealed carry (let alone open carry).   Earlier this summer I saw a guy carrying at the park I took my daughter to and left immediately after I saw it.   What kind of person needs to bring a gun to a children's park?   Does an ordinary person really have that many enemies?

I would rather have a gun and not need it then need it and not have it.

Even with home protection are you really going to wake up, realize it's an intruder and not your kid/significant other wandering around, get the key to your gun safe, and get your gun out in any amount of time that would make a difference?   

I would say yes. I keep a gun in the house for protection. I live in a rural area and have had my home broken into before.

I would rather have the ability to protect my family instead of having no chance to defend them. Just like Chill said. I'd rather have it than not.
