He had just finished, and had put the packet in his pocket, when in the court below resounded the cry:…Crime and PunishmentFyodor Dostoevsky.
I’ve been reading this book for a while now, and it is depressing. I don’t think I’m going to finish it. How did it all start? Well, one day I told myself, “I shall no longer be ignorant of English literature, I shall read The Classics”. Well here I am, with a Classic, and it’s goddamn depressing.

Saw this on the blog of Jono Bacon of Jokosher fame. Because it’s so cool, I’m going to share:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Pick the closest book, not your favourite. C. & P. was nearly edged out by my cousin’s Engineering Mathematics. Close one.

As revenge for previous acts, and just because I want to hate on some people, I demand that everyone do this.

I just noticed that Iran just lost another line. So two lines were taken offline for maintenance reasons and then suddenly 3 other lines go down just then? I’m willing to bet that the crew that went in to fix the first broke line broke the second and third through incompetence :D

But seriously, it makes you wonder. Fine, the first two lines were taken offline intentionally, but then within a few weeks they lose 3 other lines. I’m no conspiracy theorist but it looks really weird to me.
