As such, I stole this online quiz from Senior Chief Janiece at HotChicks, because it's just that damned cool.
I'm tickled by the results, I am.
Arthur C. ClarkeWell known for nonfiction science writing and for early promotion of the effort toward space travel, his fiction was often grand and visionary.
Arthur C. Clarke is one of my all time favorite writers. The scope and vision, the utter grandeur, of his work has always captivated me. When I finished 2001, Childhood's End, or The City and the Stars, I'd put the book down feeling as if my brain was sore, the way little used muscles are the day after a workout. Clarke is one of the few writers who can see a billion years into the future - and make you believe that he's been there.
Janiece, of course, is RAH - also a stellar (heh heh) choice. What about the rest of you?
I've got to go run some errands, but I was sitting here watching GWB on CNN talking about the economy. I think he's missing the causal effect of the economic downturn, in a major way - energy, and lack thereof of a practical and sustainable domestic energy policy - but that's not what got to me, it was GWB himself. He looks, hmmm, unwell. Pale, distracted, sickly - I mean significantly more than usual. He's always had an odd disjointed speech pattern, but today it's almost aphasic (or more properly, dysphasic), the way you'd see in post-stroke victims. It's strange, or stranger than usual. It may be that the interview wasn't scripted, but I think it's more than that. Yeah, just something else to worry about.
Off to the store, back in a bit.
