For those of you who haven't watched #BreakingBad yet, the finale shows the Cubs winning the world series. Completely unbelievable!

When I was in Wisconsin a few weekends ago, I was simply shocked to see a sausage and pickle spear in a Bloody Mary! This is even crazier!!!

Plumber: do you think i can cut through the wall?

Me: sure, but the leak is coming from the ceiling.

Plumber: Well them do you think i can cut through the ceiling?

Me: sure, but then i think all of the water is going to fall on your head.

Plumber: well, what should i do then?

Me: well, that's kind of why they called you in.

This bookseller certainly thinks that the intrepid journalist, Michael Deacon, who penned this thrilling article full of insight and wry understanding, has written a series of paragraphs that shine truth like the glistening, gaseous light from the orb in the sky known to this bookseller, and several other individuals with varied and different professions, as the sun. 
The snobs and critics will have a field day with the US author’s latest work – but I’m not joining in

I could roll with this. Meetings that run too long are my least favorite thing.

If I were a writer on Breaking Bad, the very last scene would be Walt showing up at the diner where The Sopranos are eating. #BreakingBad

YOU KANT HEGEL THE TRUTH!

" RIA news agency quoted police in the city of Rostov-on-Don as saying a fight broke out between two men as they argued over Kant, the German author of Critique of Pure Reason, without giving details of their debate."

"Yet today Ravinskij no longer reads serious literature. “Reading for me is not as fascinating as when I would read a forbidden book at 2 a.m. because I have to return it in the morning,” he explained."

Valid social commentary or Russian literary hipsterism?

Some Russians say literature had more political power when it was forbidden.
