That you love Geology=No. :-?

That you're a complete dork=Yes. :-b

That must be one heck of a project to map the sea's SURFACE. :-b

Now, the ocean floor - that would be worth reading about.

i've read most koontz, really like the odd books, and most of his OLDER stuff, anything with a one word title: whispers, phantoms, etc.

i've read everything king has written, and really liked most of it - i have lots of extra paperbacks if you guys want something, here are my thoughts for him:

cell (his latest): just ok to me

lisey's story: out this nov supposed to be best in awhile

the gunslinger series: this was his 7 book opus, that ended a year ago, very good a kind of western meet sci-fi meets fantasy kind of series - not his typical horror - his lord of the rings or star wars

my all time favorites:

the stand: post apocolyptic good vs evil, awesome

it: evil resides below a town, some kids must fight it

some others i really liked:
talisman and black/house (two parter)
pet sematary
the dead zone (and the movie with christopher walken)
the shining (and the movie with nicholson)

peace,
richard

ps - just finished HSTs "Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century" a fantastic book for HST fans and am just now reading Michael Crichton's "Timeline" which is good

I didn't even pick up a book last week. :-°

My wife just got me Darwin's Black Box by Michael J. Behe, so hopefully I'll get a chance to sit down and open it.

Its easy for dorks to detect other dorks, thats the only way I new. ;-D

You do pull off being "cool" really well though, the non-dorks have no clue. :-b
