e-book pricing madness continues…

As noted before on this blog, something is very wrong with the pricing of e-books… see the example of the novel Pathfinder by Card..

As the above example shows, the differences seem to get only larger! Recently, I bought a Pocketbook 602, which I really like. But I’m not going to pay more for the digital version than for the dead-tree-version! :-(

This is only about the plants, or the ‘aquascape’. Some people allow some fish:

Obviously, this is great to look at… and sort of an ‘artform’, not unlike gardening… And of course you get contests…

The Onion is at it again:

Parishioners at the First Presbyterian Church were left stunned and in awe of His glory Sunday, when the Lord God Almighty dropped by their 11 a.m. service unannounced.

If only He did… then I would cease to be a atheist :-)
