Just picked up my copy of Clariel. I really want to read it… but I also really need to finish reading and annotating the rest of the series before I delve into a new text and being scholarly about a recreational text is the BEWORST.

Lewis Carroll goes up to the counter and orders a cup of tea. He goes to sit down at a table, but becomes increasingly agitated. He forces everyone to switch seats so that he can get a seat by the window. Ten minutes later (although the clock on the wall still reads 6pm), he decides he’s had…

Olivia Manning, from Liverpool, managed to get a whopping score in an IQ test of 162 - well above the 100 average.
Her score is not only two points better than genius German physicist Einstein and Professor Stephen Hawking, but puts her in the top one per cent of intelligent people in the world.

(and of course the mainstream media won’t even acknowledge this because women doing smart things in math or science? GEDOUTTATOWN.)

She’s a kid who got higher on Mensa than two adults revered by the scientific and intellectual community world wide. SHe should be their god. Her brain’s not even done cooking yet; when she’s finished, she might be 180. 230!

You go, Olivia.  Go where you want and do what you want.  Just listen to yourself.  And I have a couple of friends in England who can keep up with you if you need people who understand.

idea for a better harry potter epilogue: hagrid is taking a stroll in the forbidden forest, long after the final battle. in the distance, he sees a glint on the forest floor. curious, he walks towards it and picks up what appears to be an oddly shaped rock. when he looks up from examining it, the image of a short wizard is standing before him. he is smiling.
