Depends on what you're looking for.  I enjoy the picaresque nature of the story: the main character runs around town(s) getting himself into and out of trouble, but he doesn't really care too much about the outcome of his actions.  It's all pretty lighthearted, but there is some pretty decent philosophizing thrown in...of which I can't remember much.  The novel is relatively short, and as the story basically has no cuts or jumps (you know, like Birdman), I was utterly surprised when I hit the last page on my tablet and realized the story was over.

Although hundreds of thousands of girls in Canada have safely taken Gardasil, at least 60 Canadians experienced debilitating illnesses after inoculation.

As usual, The Onion nails it. Cancer permanently damaged my immune system, making me one of those whose lives you're risking when you don't vaccinate your kids. Please, please, vaccinate.

In my expert opinion it came down too fast, and at too much of an angle. This lead to a rapid disassembly.

If you've had a chance to watch Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, I highly recommend watching this 'featurette' (5 minutes) on the making of Hans Zimmer's epic score.

At the cinematic level, I connected with the father/daughter theme, having been a father for only two years now.  I experienced that emotion again when hearing that Hans's only information about the film initially was about the relationship between the father and the daughter; his paternal feelings were the inspiration for the musical theme.

I brought in a new 50lbs propane tank to fill up, and the entire process went smoothly. I don't think the tank had the 'new' sticker on it which should have alerted the attendant to purge the air, but he figured it out anyway. The service was fast and courteous, and the price is way below average.
