"'Truth is strange," you know, "stranger than fiction' - besides being more to the point" - Edgar Allan Poe

What he knows best

They say a writer must write on what he knows best. This would bring my topics down to something like this-
- beer
- electronic gadgets
- funny body noises
- irrelevant information about addictive substances
- speed reading
- edgar allan poe
- fancy beer
- fooling a lot of people at the same time (despite what people say about this not being possible)
- computers (despite what my college might say about this not being possible)
- vagrant philosopy; ie- how to justify a life of meaninglessness
- the beer of yore
- sex (this would be the fictional section)
- bad hindi movies ('khao, khujao, batti bhujao' that sort of thing)
- how to make a meal out of a bar of chocolate, yesterday's rice and half a cigarette (the answer? chuck the rice, smoke the cigarette, suck on the chocolate, and sell the family dog for another bar of chocolate.)
- graphic design
- The Matrix
- Bubbleheads (the figurines with oversized heads that wobble like they're tripping on speed)
- beer (have I written this already?)

I don't know if you've ever really noticed[and i'm guessing that you haven't], but beer tastes horrible.And my taste buds would have to agree.Your taste buds, however are perfectly entitled to their own opinion.

One does not drink beer for the taste. Aha! Take that, evil anti-beer villainess!
