I'm about two-thirds of the way through and I'm entertained so far. It's kind of what I'd expect from a book from MDE.

Overall though, I'm not really sure what to think of it. The jokes are all laid out within the first 60 or so pages and the rest is a strange narrative with a slowly evolving plot that's leading to an unpredictable resolution.

I read a book as a kid about some Asian girl in an orphanage or something. The cover was a blue/yellow/green stripes and she was sitting on the cover wearing pigtails and a skateboard in cartoon style. Also what was the name of the mathematical philosopher who fought in WW1 he's well-known.

<faggot has cock embedded so far into all of his orifices, he's lost all capacity for reason

It doesn't take a rocket scientist, you fucking dipshit, to recognize homosexual tendencies, and you and all the cocksuckers in this thread have them in spades. Why haven't you killed yourself yet? Is this thread, and the hope that someone may return to interact with you, the only thing keeping you going? Might I suggest that you go down to your local automotive supply store, purchase as much antifreeze you can possibly afford, then return home and blend that shit into a nice and frothy suicide smoothie?

I had a dream last night that I think might be taken from a book I read long ago, but I don't remember it. Here's some things that happen in it, and these memories might not be entirely correct:

>there is a group of at least 4 children, aged from 10 to 14 I think

>they go into the forbidden caves to have an adventure

>they get attacked by trolls and retreat

>(not sure if this happens before or after the trolls) the habitat of the subterranean mice gets invaded by the cats, who in turn get invaded by some larger animal. However, the group of kids manage to set everything right

>they go into the caves again, but get separated. The story follows each one separately from now on

>one of the boys is driven deep underground, where he encounters some blue ant-like creatures. They challenge him to walk through the following passage without stepping on any of them. They are arranged in complex patterns. He steps on some and receives psychological torture

>another one of the boys goes even further underground where he hallucinates. The narrator says something like 'the boy [who met the ants] wouldn't even begin to understand'

Does anyone know what book this is?

Translations can make or break a book. Can anyone recommend a good translation of Meditations by Marcus Aurelius?

I highly recommend Eknath Easwaran's translations of the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads, as well as Open Secret, Versions of Rumi by John Moyne and The Mahaharata by Andy Fraenkel. What other translations would you recommend?

Not that any of these are bad, but you don't pick up a James story when you're in the mood for a Lovecraft. The focus of the horror is way too different.

When, long ago, the gods created Earth

In Jove's fair image Man was shaped at birth.

The beasts for lesser parts were next designed;

Yet were they too remote from humankind.

To fill the gap, and join the rest to Man,

Th'Olympian host conceiv'd a clever plan.

A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure,

Filled it with vice, and called the thing a Nigger.

because it's easy to understand even if you never read it, which means it's easy to shill, which means it's easy to brainwash the goyim (create context)

basically, 1984 is "dude fascism lmao". if you google "average IQ per country 2018" you'll easily figure out the answer to your question
