Not about fragging, but a lot fragging in it. If you're looking for a great book about the insanity happening in Vietnam, check out, Tiger Force. It's amazing. Pulitzer Prize winner as well. Saying it's a dark book would be an understatement.
> The last great secret of the Vietnam War is revealed in a gripping book that is the culmination of efforts for which the authors received a Pulitzer Prize for investigative
reporting. TIGER FORCE is the searing story of a group of elite army soldiers in Vietnam who spun dangerously out of control and went on a horrific seven-month rampage. It is also the story of how these crimes, buried by the army for decades, at last came to light through the heroic persistence of a few individuals who could not forget.
It was a CIA experiment.
Also, this was a great resource that explains the history of Catholic doctrines regarding abortion: A Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion.
Basically, abortion was forbidden not because it killed a fetus (the idea of "life begins at conception" is a corruption of original doctrine that placed ensoulment some time after conception because of the twinning threshold, and unborn babies often are considered to go to either Limbo or even Heaven) but because it allowed for the connection between sexual intercourse and reproduction to be severed, making it an "abomination". This is the root of the control of reproduction issue, not the life of the fetus/baby. You may not be able to steer the class to this factual foundation, but you can at least learn and know it better than most in the class will - while I personally disagree with it and the policy proposals that come from it, I believe that we become better citizens and people by understanding the background of those we disagree with better than they do. It shows respect while also using those ideas as tools to debate and discuss.
5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides)
"You sure bro?"
"Oh yeah, I got...plans...for it."
A parent has the clear legal responsibility to care for, protect, and reasonably discipline a child. The shooters illegally procured thousands of dollars of weaponry and stored them in their parents' homes. There is likely legal grounds to find them negligent and therefore partially liable for the outcome.
Also keep in mind there were 36 victims. Figures out to be about $70k/victim. For the families, it was covered entirely through their homeowners' policies, and they were reportedly "very happy" with the outcome.
And don't shed any tears for the Klebolds. Sue is apparently writing a fucking book.
Also realize some of the people that contributed to the $2.5M (like Manes and Durant) were the adults who actually purchased the weapons for the shooters.
I like this one All My Friends

Taggerung will always be my favorite, but all the other Redwalls were close behind.
Agh, the description of the FOOD! salivates By the way, there's totally a Redwall cookbook!
Barnes & Noble link. It's not the eighth book, it's the script to a stageplay, but it's still another Harry Potter book.
So ein fantastisches Buch.
/r/all: If you're looking for a fantastic book, especially if you liked The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, read The 13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear.
It's seriously amazing, great as a childrens book but adults will definitely enjoy it aswell. Here, check out the editorial reviews. It's great.
There's a book called "30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary". We had to read and get tested on it every day for 5 days (so the sped up version) when I was in AP English in high school. It's so well done in how it breaks down words, mostly in latin, to essentially teach you another language so that you can recognize the meanings of words. It has exercises and memory tests. I still consider it a huge help to my education and writing skills.
EDIT: Hey everyone, here's the version of the book I'm referring to. Dr. Wilfred Funk's 30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary It's only $8 but you may be able to download it for free or a small fee online.
Clearly the five books of 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' by George R. R. Martin.
If you've read them already, try Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey.
Narita Airport, Tokyo train stations, the actual trains themselves, and street signs all have romanized lettering on their signs, so navigating is easy. Ordering was interesting. Some places have English menus, some dont. Often it was pointing at the picture of what you wanted to eat.
What I would suggest you do before you go is read some books on the culture of Japan so that you can minimize as many mistakes as you can. Also, do some research on finding your way around Tokyo, and how to get from your hotel to where you want to visit. Tokyo City Atlas definitely helped. Also, this is another helpful site.
Note: Tokyo is easy to get around without speaking/reading Japanese. I have heard that if you head out to more rural cities, some knowledge of Japanese is a must.
The first one is called Wake Up Ron Burgundy, and might be available on Netflix or Amazon/iTunes/VUDU. It's definitely available as a bonus disc on the DVD.
The second one is available and bonus material here on Anchorman 2 Blu-ray for 6 bucks. It's not advertised as a different movie, but as the "763 New Jokes" version.

It's not just americans. Italians know about Goldman Sachs.
Romano Prodi, prime minister of Italy from 1996 to 1998 was caught accepting "consulting fees" (WINK WINK) from Goldman Sachs through a hidden company he jointly owned with his wife. An Italian prosecutor said in 1996 – when Prodi was Italian prime minister – that there was sufficient evidence to press criminal charges for bribery, but she told the Telegraph that her superiors retaliated against her and she was exiled to Sardinia.
The President of the European Central Bank comes from Goldman Sachs.
So does the Chairman of the British Central Bank.
Since the Reagan/Thatcher neoliberal movement in the 70s, Central Banks have become independant from elected governement because according to the business press, "populists" can have "dangerous" policies. When they say dangerous, it's not dangerous for the homeless, it's dangerous for the major capital owners... Since then, Central Bankers have remained independant and ruthlessly defend their political independance from elected governements.
Goldman Sachs makes sure to hire every major central bankers and politicians, giving them huge bonuses. I wouldn't be surprised if Marc Carney or Mario Draghi join the board in 10 years for millions of dollars.

Alas, they only gave me a handful of ARCs or I'd totally be down with that. Though if randomactsofkindness wants me to donate a couple copies, I'd happily do so. I might offer to do so anyway, but I'm scared they'd think I was tooting my own horn.
As for buying it - it can be preordered here, here, or here. I'm sure it can be picked up elsewhere but those are the easiest places to preorder.

Found this excerpt from his book.
> This scene was billed by my producers as the "world's most dangerous stunt." They were probably telling the truth--although just about any stunt is dangerous, if you do it wrong. (The stunt that nearly killed me took place less than fifteen feet off the ground, after all.) Luckily, I did it right. Eventually. Even though one of my stuntmen proved it could be done (from a lower level, of course), it took me two weeks to get up the nerve to try it myself. The sequence begins with me fighting it out with some thugs on the top of a very tall building in Rotterdam, Holland. After battling with them around the roof, and nearly falling off once or twice, I finally take the quickest possible trip to the sidewalk below--sliding down the side of the building, which is slanted nearly forty-five degrees, all the way to the ground. Twenty-one stories. If I ever have an amusement park, I'll be sure to turn this stunt into a ride.
Your experience may have been this way, but there is a lot of research that shows women have a very high degree of sexual fluidity throughout there lifetimes, is malleable, and can be shaped through life experiences.
I'm always at a loss when people mention 'that type of guy', who is this fellow? Do they believe that there are specifically evil people who go around with mustaches and capes or something? Do they have IDs and punch cards for evil deeds? Ridiculous.
Yeah I would hope most Americans could name 5 or so people, at the very least, who they know were alive in 1765.
Any signor of the Declaration of Independence would have been alive by that year, naturally.
There was quite a lot going on in the latter half of the 18th century. Voltaire, Catherine the Great, Louis XIV, Benjamin Franklin, etc.
Anyone curious about what was going on in the world 250 years ago should read this book:
If you're interested in learning more there is a fantastic history on the subject called <em>Autumn in the Heavenly Kingdom</em>. It's especially fascinating as an American because the Taiping Rebellion lasted long enough to overlap with the American Civil War and the British essentially had to decide whether to throw their military support behind the Qing Dynasty or the Confederates. Great read.
Here's her book. It's not much, but at least she gets some royalties off of it I'm guessing.
I found a good in a Barnes and Nobel dumpster. It had a weird cover. Turns out it was a pre-release. Sold it online for $400.00. The real book was released about 6 months later.
Edit: In case anyone who ends up seeing this cares: This was the book.
I found that Cooking for Geeks was a brilliantly helpful resource. (Barnes&Noble link)
It explains about different balances of different tastes (bitter, salty, sour, sweet, umami, 'other'), examples of each type of taste and some examples of foods that exhibit each, and the effect it has on other flavours. There are also examples of different tastes together and examples of them.
It also goes on about how smell affects taste and some of the different compounds that give certain foods their characteristic smell.
It also has all kinds of useful scientific information on cooking processes.What temperature changes happen at, why and how they happen, and recipes that actually explain why you're doing each step; some molecular gastronomy; and an awesome part called "fun with hardware".
That book really improved my cooking and baking abilities, and it also gave me much more courage to experiment with flavour combinations.
hey, thanks for posting this! my name's jeff, i'm the guy who helped the band put this together. we've been working on it since 2010 (!!) and are super stoked that it's finally hitting the shelves!
the reactions thus far have been really flattering... we got advance quotes from Billie Joe, Joan Jett, Amanda Palmer, Jane Wiedlin, Fletcher, Brian Baker, and John Cameron Mitchell for the back cover, but more recently we've gotten some amazing responses from Matt Skiba, Jay Bentley, and Noodles from the Offspring on social media.
if you search for #hepatitisbathtub on facebook, twitter, and instagram you'll see what everyone's been saying...it's been really overwhelming seeing how many people are enjoying it!

I wrote a research paper on Corporations and the use of force in law school. I broke the incidences down into three categories.
1) Corporations using force (generally with wilfully blind governments)
2) States employing Corporations to use force (Blackwater, etc.)
3) States using force at the behest or to benefit Corporations (generally overthrowing unfriendly governments, IE: Iran for BP)

> It makes sense that he was at least Muslim as a child.
From an interview with author Edward Klein, using a quote from an interview that he had with Obama's pastor Jeremiah Wright:
> CP: Readers of The Christian Post are curious about the religious background of our elected leaders. How would you describe the Obamas' faith?
> Klein: In my three-hour interview with Rev. Jeremiah Wright in November of 2011, he said Barack Obama knew a great deal about Islam, was steeped in Islam and understood Islam from his childhood. But, in fact, he knew little of Christianity and that Wright taught Obama how to accept Jesus without denouncing his family and friends in the Muslim community. But when I asked Wright if he converted Obama to Christianity, he said "I don't think so."

Here's the book they were promoting, good read: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-amateur-edward-klein/1105869861
There are plenty of guys who want to be with you no matter what you think of your size or looks. Trust me. My husband and I temporarily tried poly -- we realized it wasn't for us and quit -- and during that time it was not a problem for me to find partners.
I'm no longer the skinny, lithe girl I was pre-marriage, either -- I'm a good 55 lbs heavier than when I met my husband, and I have a jiggly belly with a flap-over (pannus) that covers my c-section scar. I have stretch marks up my inner thighs, across my belly, under my breasts, and behind my knees. My breasts are no longer quite as perky, and in general I'm not tight, sexy, and young, or even a MILF. I look (to me) like a mom, with a mom body and mom jeans and just not-sexy.
But apparently, I still look pretty good, because I was able to find numerous partners, to the point where I could be picky about who I slept with and I rejected a few guys.
If you were willing to look for partners, if you were willing to make this truly an open marriage, believe me -- your weight will not be an issue.
Now, that's all if you'd like to try making this truly open. I'd recommend you read The Ethical Slut (I have a copy, if you want, let me know your address and I can mail it to you). It's all about healthy communication and respectful, honest open relationships. Right now, what you're describing is not an "open" relationship. It is coercion and manipulation. Your husband is being unfair and not addressing your feelings, needs or concerns in this situation. Did he even posit other solutions, like investing in a RealDoll, or occasionally getting someone to watch the kids so you could travel with him, or having virtual sex with you via Skype? Was his first and only solution: I travel, therefore non-monogamous sex?
Boogie Board. Good for grocery lists, notes, or just random doodles.
You can replace it from Barnes and Noble apparently. If that's the right version - guess there's a GOTY edition too. Hope you're doing alright though!
>They can take up to three tests a day regardless of passing or failing.
That means they can take 1095 tests per year.
Searching just architecture books yielded 31248 results
That means our hero would have to successfully read, comprehend, and test for about 28.5 years just to get through that. Not all of these books likely exist in the store but even still I see no way.
Also, as the hero reads the books, new books will be written and brought in.
I politely let them know there may be a discriminatory customer service problem at one of their branches in Plano that potential and formerly loyal costumers were becoming aware of. I feel they should know how it might reflect on them as a corporation.
It probably will not do anything but I felt better.
Well, it's slightly more complex than that - it's that no system is guaranteed to always give you a community-wide ranking, no matter what. There's always the chance that voter preferences won't be able to produce a collective preference. If you are interested in this I cannot recommend the book Gaming the Vote highly enough. Really excellent stuff about voting theory and game theory and completely understandable if you don't have ny background in it.

I wonder if they have the book Fix-It and Forget-It Cooking with Kids: 50 Favorite Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker
My old counselor when I was a kid had a few kids books on different family members being in jail (I remember this one specifically bc I loved bunnies as a kid but I'm sure there's more out there). There's also videos (Sesame Street did a segment) and online materials. Basically, be honest with the kid, but give her age appropriate materials to cope and understand
My parents got me this book around her age and I loved it! It allows her to read age appropriate material and understand her body and he changes it will go through. I really can't recommend it enough.
I apologize in advance for filming vertically like a scrub. I was too excited and giddy to think properly.

I'll kindly disagree. Because you and your wife hadn't heard of her isn't really indicative of whether or not she was popular. She's written somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 novels (several of them bestsellers and highly influential in the genre) and short story compilations since the 70's. You don't get that many books published without being popular.
In case you begin to speculate that she could have had that many books published as trashy pulp fiction, she's won four Hugos in addition to other awards for her writing.
She's famous enough that other writers have written about her: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-essential-writers-guide-michael-williamson/1117070502?ean=9781286831137
And highlighted by Kirkus: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/features/worlds-cj-cherryh/
She was ranked 19th on the ISFDB Top 100 Authors list.
Of course, her popularity was at its peak before the internet (though she is still actively writing books)--you could easily sell a couple million books and still be a relative unknown to the billions that had never read them. Also, many of her most popular books were labeled Sci-Fi, not Fantasy. So, it doesn't surprise me that you or your wife missed out. But trust me, she's a Big Name in the SF/F world.

Ok hunty, if you apparently have the tools and animation know-how to get something like this done you better start with putting together a damn fine demo reel for your animation. However, just being able to draw something isn't enough to animate it. You can't just have a growing interest, you need to actually animate, so I'd start by buying the Animator's Survival Kit and making it your new bible because from what it sounds like you are decades away from being as talented as Ted Kierscey or any Disney key animator/animator.
I have the book Tales from the New Jersey Devils Locker Room and there's a few interesting stories from behind the scenes. It's nothing serious, but there's a Chico story that's pretty funny. He was driving along route 80 and a cop pulls him over. As he's getting lectured, the cop says he recognizes Chico.
Cop: Don't you play hockey
Cop: You're a goalie right?
Cop: Chico Resch? Goalie for the New Jersey Devils?
Chico: Yup that's me.
Cop: I've seen you play goal, and you more than anyone else knows what a red light looks like.
That cop was a Rangers fan.

Currently I'm wrapping up the sequel to Steal the Sky (which comes out Jan 5th!) and getting ready to start in on the third and final book in that series. My agent and I have also been plotting another project that's currently secret, but I'm really excited about. :D
Hands down, my favorite experience as an author has been the Drinks With Authors party. As a fan the first time, and a bona fide penmonkey the second.
Edited to add: the ebook version of Steal the Sky appears to be on sale for $2.99 at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

The quote that WT attributes to Richard Dawkins isn't even from him.
>“The filament of DNA is information, a message written in a code of chemicals, one chemical for each letter,” wrote evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. “It is almost too good to be true, but the code turns out to be written in a way that we can understand.
It's from Genome: The Autobiography of a Species in 23 Chapters by Matt Ridley. You can read the chapter it was taken from in excerpt here
Richard Dawkins was merely quoting Matt Ridley in The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing
Not only are WT now misquoting authors, they are getting the source authors altogether wrong.

I believe that /u/vortican is referring to me.
My boyfriend and I (31 and 30, together 1.5 years) just found out that I'm pregnant a couple of weeks ago (my post is linked to this account if you're interested in the details of our quandary). After talking about it for a week or so, we both mutually decided to go through with the pregnancy. We love each other very much, had planned to get married and have children in a couple of years, and ultimately decided that an abortion would be really difficult to cope with. The idea of being parents is terrifying, but people do it all the time in far worse circumstances. And honestly, with every day that passes, we are getting more and more excited. We just booked a fun vacation (during my 2nd trimester) and are talking a lot about how we want to approach parenthood. We want to have date nights, and be sure to continue to build our relationship.
All I can say is that you guys should keep talking about it, A LOT, and decide what feels right for both of you. It's such a personal decision. Either way, it's going to change your life.
EDIT: Also, your feelings sound very similar to my boyfriend's. He wanted to be more prepared, and it took him a couple of days to wrap his head around things. After thinking it through, he decided we should keep the baby (which is what I was leaning towards). He went to Barnes and Noble the next day and bought a couple of awesome books. One is called "Dude, you're going to be a dad", and it has been really helpful for him. The fact that you want to be prepared and understand that being prepared takes work already makes you a better father than many.
Please feel free to PM me if you want to. Best of luck to you two!
In addition to the big life changes you mentioned, there is a natural defiance/pushing borders development that happens at this age. We went through in second grade too.
We went to a therapist and she gave us this book - this is taught in Master of Social Work programs, so it's a legit resource.

The Lost World by Crichton. I was a big dinosaur kid (and still am, as an adult) and Jurassic Park came out the day after my eigth birthday. My mom took me on Saturday, for a belated birthday treat. When we got home I really had to pee, but I was scared a raptor was in the shower. The film was awesome, and scary, and I fell in love with it.
My mother had always stressed reading, and I was a voracious reader by that point. My mom and I read the novel together. I fell in love with that as well.
When The Lost World came out in '95 I got it that day. I read it alone this time, as a ten year old (or nearly ten I suppose, I'm not sure what month it came out.) It had everything I loved about the first novel, but somehow, more. Maybe it was simply because I read this one myself, but I simply adored it, just a smidgen more than I adored the first one eve.
I read both of them, back to back, every year. Currently nearing the end of JP in fact. I just picked this up from Barnes and Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/barnes-noble-leatherbound-classics-jurassic-park-the-lost-world-michael-crichton/1106658832
I gotta mention Jamie Oliver's 30-minute meals as a good example: not only does it list necessary ingredients and tell you how to prepare it, it actually guides you through the timing of the whole process like "start this in the pan, then we'll switch over to this side dish step, which will take about as long as the pan needs to sear the first side before flipping" etc. Also they're delicious.
Not saying online videos or written recipes aren't also handy, but sometimes you can't beat a quality physical cookbook there on the counter with you.

Are you, as a poo fancier, aware of the children's book "The Story of the Little Mole in Search of Whodunnit"? Mole pokes his head out of his hole one day and something lands on his head. He walks around to all the animals, points up at the warm hat he's still wearing and demands, "Did you do this?" They all answer. "No, I do mine is like this..." and demonstrate an example of 'theirs'. By the end of the book the mystery is finally solved with the help of some flies (of course).
I'm not religious, but I minored in religious studies in college anyway. Most religious texts are fascinating, the Old Testament in particular; in my opinion, people who claim that religious texts are "boring" are either just trying to be edgy or have failed to understand the text (especially the OT works, which are anything but boring).
I recommend picking up the Oxford study bible or a similar version, which has footnotes that explain the metaphors and stuff like that. It's good for someone who doesn't have a lot of background in reading religious texts and would need some analysis alongside them.
I absolutely love this review and in case you need to suffer again, there's another book that I haven't even touched becuase the first one gave me double autism
If anyone wants to see what that would have looked like, they found a way to capitalize on it: The Star Wars
I don’t want to be a negative nelly, but I'm a bit skeptical to claims like this. From what i learned in introductory medicine – sleep needs to be one continuous processes for all the chemistry not to get fucked up. For instance, Growth hormone takes a while to start releasing once you start sleeping, and if you don’t sleep for many hours you are not going to get the hormonal induced regrowth og body.
That's not even touching on the topic of REM sleep, winch we are putty sure is needed for memory, creativity and integration of experience. REM sleep doesn’t really ramp up until very late in a 8 hours sleep cycle. And the claim that lack of long, continuous, sleep cycles are detrimental to mental acuity are confirmed by many studies.
The overall impression I have from reading about sleep is as following: Sleep is a carefully orchestrated sequence of MANY processes that needs to unfold in a particular pattern for everything to be done correctly. There are many studies that find ANY kind of interruption to a normal daily sleep-cycle to be detrimental.
That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if something come along and overturned all of this, that is the nature of science. But given the amount of evidence for the opposite, I'm gonna stand back and wait for more evidence before i change my mind. For instance, one study that says evolution doesn’t exists wont convince me, but a 1000 such studies would.
My claims can be are based on the following books:
TL;DR: This studies is contrary to alot of studies that show we need the whole uninterrupted night of sleep, or suffer the consequences of reduced cognitive ability. I'm still open to new finding, but one completely out-of-sync-with-the-rest studies is suspicious. Cool if true tho.
Since everyone else is being a dick I'd recommend starting with These Are the Voyages or one of the autobiographies of the cast like Takei's or one of Shatner's books.
Full disclosure: I did not read these, but I just saw them today on Barnes and Noble, so I linked the synopsis from the site.
<strong>The Ballad of Black Tom</strong> by Victor LaValle

Edited also because I typed a bunch of crap wrong
great question. for NEW stuff, i primarily use three sources --
1: is B&N speculative fiction blog (daily updates)
2: is the io9 monthly round up (posted near the start of each month)
3: is the amazon.com feature where they email you their featured \ best seller \ new release list periodically
hope this helps! anyone else have similar links? thanks
Hi there! I work on the BN ebook team. We're limited by publisher agreements on what we are and are not allowed to discount, which is part of the reason why discount codes are not available.
I know it's not exactly what you want, but most weekends there is an ebook sale of some kind. And even though this often full romance books (which, I'm going to guess as Angry Caveman Lawyer you're not that into, but hey, I don't know anything), this list gets refreshed regularly and sometimes there are decent bestsellers that are discounted:
*Quick edit: Just to clarify, there are other reasons (business and contractual) why we don't discount, but I can't get into the details.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here has a protagonist with anxiety, and his sister deals with an eating disorder. It is an utterly beautiful book (and a kickass fantasy).
Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom has a cast of characters, virtually all dealing with mental health issues (sensitively). For an ostensibly light-hearted heist series, it does a great job with representation and not shying away from the dark places...
There are a lot of great books in YA. Probably more than fantasy, to be honest. Listicle and another listicle.
I have this book, a very interesting (and funny) read!
Book: "What If" by Randall Monroe
A friend of mine started with A Feast for Crows and didn't have much of an issue, but I would DEFINITELY recommend starting with book one.
Game of Thrones will very much feel like a retread, as season one was incredibly faithful, but there's much more depth to be found in the novels with the books' second person perspective. I was a huge fan of the show only until three months ago when I finally picked up this great collection and I've had a fantastic time catching up. There are many secondary characters that aren't vital to the plot and don't appear in the show, but just being familiar with them by the time the books really part from the show will make it a much more enjoyable read.
Appreciate this. Would love it if I could actually find things on the website. Picked up MoM 2e last time. Any highlights?
Edit: qualifying games
Of particular note, fury of dracula.
Edit 2: apparently fury only counts towards the 30%. 20% coupon doesn't work with it.
This is your best bet. Barnes & Noble's H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction.
One of my professors at Rutgers wrote a really good book about the disenfranchisement issues in regard to the 2000 election. Link is here if anyone is interested, it's really messed up.
Here are the smaller ones.
Each story has a different artist as well.
The Rogue Prince (reign of Viserys I) -> The Princess and the Queen (Targ civil war after Viserys' death) -> Dunk and Egg (starts during reign of Aerys I, should end with death of Aegon V, most hasn't been written) -> A Song of Ice and Fire (starts during reign of Robert I, ends with reign of ???)
The World of Ice and Fire contains no spoilers besides Joffrey being dead. If you're coming in from the show, you should have no worries about major spoilers in any of the works.
In fact, I recommend you start with The World of Ice and Fire. You'll appreciate the context when you start reading the main works. Also, you should buy <em>The Lands of Ice and Fire</em> and follow along with the maps as you read (it makes everything a lot less confusing).
You're going to have a good time. Welcome to the books, and have fun! :)
I had a pop-up edition of Wizard of Oz when I was a kid. I remember my favorite part was when you got to the Emerald City page and had to pull out these little paper glasses and put them on. There was green cellophane in the lenses, so it made everything look green, which to a little kid is (understandably) the most amazing thing ever.
The Emerald City was a big pop-out castle with a few outlying buildings. If I remember right, it was silver-grey without the glasses.
There are interesting studies about how decreasing crosswalk markings and other signs can actually lead to a safer environment. People are forced to be more aware of their surroundings and to coordinate with others. The book Traffic has a lot of great discussion of topics like this.
FDR was tied to this ring largely as a political stunt by the Republican controlled Congress. There was never any evidence that he had any direct connection with scandal other than having signed an order to "Clean up" perversion in the Navy. There is no evidence he had an knowledge of the details of this rather strange sting operation but Congressional Republicans thought they could end his political career if they could tie him directly to the scandal.
An interesting side note to this story was the fact that FDR was on vacation in New England when he heard the news of this accusation. He immediately ended his vacation to head to Washington to clear his name of this scandal. Along the way, he contracted polio. As a result, his political career was postponed for about a decade.

It's not exactly 50%, but here's the first thing to come to mind.
$46.11, after sale drops to $23.05
When the sale starts, you'll save almost $7.
What scares me is that the other day at the library I found an actual "Farmville for Dummies" book. (I think it was this one, but I ~~ran away screaming~~ walked away quietly and left it on the shelf without investigating too deeply.)

Work out a code with your roommate for private time. Not just sex, but alone time, too.
The real hack to college apartment living is to get out of your room as much as possible! Do not study in your room. Hang out at the gym, the library, and the student life center.
Buy higher quality items for things you'll use regularly, and buy two sets of almost everything (sheets, towels, dishes). This way you can use one while you wash the other, and you'll have items for guests. Plus, significant others like high quality items. No one wants to sleep on scratchy sheets, or use a stinky towel.
Get a small set of tools. It makes a world of difference.
I don't think you'll like the whiteboard desk. No one I know liked theirs. Most teachers require you to turn in your work, and you'll want to look at how you solved the problems when you are studying.
HIRE A MAID. Look, you're busy, you're changing your routine, but this doesn't mean you need to be a slob. You can typically hire a maid for around $40/month. Either hire a maid or actually do your chores.
I've read Siddhartha, and it's a fantastic read. Your teacher made an excellent choice, you'll enjoy it. Incidentally, the book isn't about Gautama Buddha. In the narrative, Siddhartha will actually meet Buddha, but it is merely incidental.
>What should I do about infoming my mom about this? On one hand, I'd like her to pray with me. On the other hand, she has a habit of being extremely protective with me, and I know that she'll freak out the moment I tell her. I don't know what to do. I know that if I tell her, I'll never hear the end of it at home or at school
Ew. You're in 12th grade, you are either an adult or about to become one. Why do you have to tell her anyways? You aren't obligated to tell your mother exactly what you're reading in English if she doesn't ask. If you don't want to deal with her freaking out (which is totally understandable), don't mention it.
>I know I'll face trials like this all through my life, I feel confident that God is all I need to get me through these pages, and I'm worried that telling my mom could lead to her trying to dominate the situation and make it worse. The last thing I need right now is chaos. I just want to get through this quickly and peacefully. Prayers for that too would be awesome. Thanks again!
I think you're making this into way more than it actually is. Siddhartha is a pretty damn good novel that focuses on the titular character's spiritual journey through life. It's not going to obliterate your faith or be terrible. In fact, I'd actually happily recommend <em>Siddhartha</em> to anyone looking for a book recommendation.
You should probably check out /r/polyamory; I've noticed /r/relationships tends to trend somewhat more traditional when it comes to these situations. Also, read The Ethical Slut, it's a great overview of how to communication in a poly relationship and handle jealousy, etc.
