  • Mark shared from Asylum Bound by Stuart Townsend
    Years later the colleague would describe that first E.C.T. The doctors didn’t know how much electricity to pass between his temples so just wound up the volts until a seizure resulted. The records from this first E.C.T. show that once the patient had had the seizure he was quiet and still for some time. Regaining consciousness he sat up and said, “What the fuck are you arseholes trying to do?” Fair comment!
    Note: totally fair comment
  • Mark shared from Containment by Christian Cantrell
    She told her class once that meetings were not actually for communicating, but for fixing breakdowns in communication. In a well-run work environment, communication should be constant and efficient and organic, and formal meetings should almost never be necessary.
    Note: Great theory ..
  • Mark shared from Post-Human (Post-Human Series) by David Simpson
    “You’re not a god, you son of a bitch!” Old-timer spat at the A.I. “What kind of god takes pleasure in causing pain?” The A.I. smiled. “What kind of god doesn’t?”

  • Mark shared from Where the Hell is Matt?: Dancing Badly Around the World by Matt Harding
    Each day at my job felt like one day closer to death; go to work, come home, watch TV, one whole day lost and gone forever. When I traveled, no time felt wasted. I was alert and active. I was switched on.
    Note: words to live by
  • Mark shared from Plague War by Jeff Carlson
    The monkey was still very strong in modern man. The monkey had limited patience, so people resisted time and change. They developed rationales to show that they were the center of everything, fighting to teach “intelligent design” in schools instead of biology and science. Nonsense.
    Note: this book is awesome
