Need a good laugh?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
With the probability of catyclysm looming ever so large in my "rangefinder", I find it increasingly difficult to keep my outlook on life from being skewed. To maintain a balanced perspective, I use regular injections of humor into the dire information overload.
This said, I would like to recommend any book authored by Patrick F. McManus(esp.: A Fine And Pleasant Misery)to anyone who grew up in the great outdoors, or anyone who has plans for relocating to a more remote setting. Having grown up only a stones throw from the author, it was natural that I would get hooked. But to my surprise, most of my missing copies can be attributed to the "white knuckle " grip of friends and family who's lifestyle is urban.

Ahh, a reminder to latch on to some of his work to take into the year 2000.

Does anyone know the name of the book about outdoor toilets??? It was a bunch of short stories about the different kinds of biffies and the people who inhabited them...3 holers, 1-holer, star doors etc. Rollinf on the floor funny.
