  • 1. Pedestrians have the right of way, but only if they don't look directly at any of the cars, and give the cars plenty of lead time to slow down ... a little.

    2. Don't read The Hobbit. LotR is better. The Hobbit is dull IMO.
    • There have been only two books in my rather extensive reading career that caused me such discomfort reading them: _The Hobbit_ and _Alaska_. (James Michener at his finest. If you're fascinated by geological processes and the thoughts of random animals, please, give it a half year of your life.)

      I've never read anything by J.A.M. again, and I suspect I'll never try J.R.R.T. again either.

      • Don't feel too worried about JRRT.

        What he writes can be quite lovely, unfortunately he tends to give far too much detail and writes in a fairly curmudgeonly style. Some people like it, some people (like myself) don't.

        <sarc> now if only someone had taught him how to write...</sarc>
