    I know it’s not the point, but I love the cover layout on all those projects. It’s so classy yet authoritative, like the old Penguin Classics jackets, or that one brand of technical manuals that makes X86 Machine Language Conversion Protocols sound like King Lear.

      School playgrounds after hours and on weekends can actually be the perfect places for shooting off rockets, since they’re large empty spaces that are often deserted.

    I don’t think I need Clarinet lessons, but if there are lessons on siege warfare, let me know.
