I designed and created the cover myself. I used construction paper and cardboard placed directly on the glass of my scanner. Amped up the yellow and added text in Picasa. Spared no expense.

I probably shouldn't comment on the fact that my story also includes a character called "Doc". However, as was commented on above, no flying cars. I think those two cancel each other out.

Would you want to read a book by an actuary?

So, I have written and (self-)published a book, and I am curious if people would be interested in (buying &) reading it. The book is science fiction intended for middle-school aged kids, but all the...

I don't think I've ever used the word "because" or implied causality between being a believer and being moral (whatever those terms might mean). I think it is impossible to be a "believer" and...

There seems to be some confusion, perhaps even by the OP himself, about the logic being used in this thread. A religious person might think,

"I believe in God, therefore I should be a good...

I'm amazed that they got the "almost 700% more likely" part right. 211650/26833 = 7.888, and in my experience most innumerates will say (if anything) "almost 800% more".

Why would it be fake? They've been discussing Bill and Ted for a while, and do you think the Wachowskis are doing anything other than sitting around writing Matrix treatments?
