This is the first chapter of Nick Miller's first book, Isn't It Pretty to Think So?.

I was pretty reluctant to read it. I didn't think that, out of all the inspiring authors on the internets, I would randomly come across one worth the time of skimming even the first paragraph.

Well, I was very wrong. It's awesome. I'm hooked. Miller's writing here shows great talent. The story grabs onto you from the first sentence (which you can see below). I will definitely be buying this book once it is published. Give it a read! You won't regret it.

"A man who developed cancer in his windpipe has gotten a new trachea, grown entirely from his own stem cells over two days in a laboratory in Sweden. The operation is remarkable because it's the first time a completely synthetically grown organ has been transplanted into a patient, The Guardian reported. "The synthetic trachea was created by growing the patient's own stem cells on an artificial 'scaffold', which British scientists helped design.
Windpipes have been grown from stem cells before, but only using the collagen 'skeletons' of donated tracheas ... Professor Paolo Macchiarini, an Italian expert in regenerative medicine who led the groundbreaking operation, designed the Y-shaped synthetic trachea scaffold with Professor Alexander Seifalian, from University College London." The success of the operation means that patients who need organ transplants could conceivably be able to have them specially grown instead of having to wait for a donor."

+Stu Hampshire: It's available in Europe and the U.S. now.
+Anthony M: It's different from Pandora -- Pandora is a radio. You don't really choose your own music (at least, you can't pick a song and listen when you want to hear it). On Spotify you can make your own playlists, and stream almost any song you want. If it isn't there, you can still play those songs by importing your own MP3s. If you have Premium, then you don't have to deal with ads, the streaming quality is better, and you can stream music on your smart phone.

I should go play Dance Central and get some exercise, but I'd rather listen to Ellie Goulding. #laziness

Story
Tagline
This is a brief description of me.
Introduction
I'm Cavin. I live in Columbia, SC. I am a student. I like languages. I like lamps, and not overhead lighting. I believe my Pandora station is bipolar. My sister says I have a soundtrack to my life because I have music playing constantly. I like computers and it's always on if I'm home. I prefer to sitting on living room furniture at a house with a few friends than going out to a place with lots of people (although I end up loving to meet them once I do). I like to travel. I like going on adventures.

Yes, I ordered a sub to be delivered from Cibo's today. I'm from out of town so I didn't know anything about this place. Well, I ordered my sub warm, expecting it toasted. That's how any good pizza/sub place does it. They toast it! I got it microwaved! It was less than tasty to say the least. If they had indeed gotten over the laziness and toasted the sub, it would have been spectacular. The ingredients were awesome, the portions of each of the ingredients were great, but the actual thing... So mediocre.
