    Tell the truth, you bought the first one because it has Sheep in the title and it's written by a guy named Dick. :schmoopysex:

    Ich genieße häufig das Gefühl der warmen Sonne, die unten auf meinem kleinen Wiener Würstchen schlägt, während ich Geräte in meine Kohlenrutsche einfüge.

    I want you to read "Brave New World" and count how many times the word indefatigable is used. Then find the word used in "Slaughterhouse Five" the same number of times that Huxley should have used instead then read Dicks and see how just using everyday words make the story more American. :hat:
