Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.

By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..

My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.

Now I've read fucking everything. The Boston bomber lawyers want the case against the little freak dismissed on the grounds of...wait for it...he can't get a fair jury trial in Massachusetts because...wait for it...people over age 70 can ask to automatically excuse themselves from being on a jury.


"Being over age 70, like race, sex and national origin, is an immutable characteristic � one cannot get younger � and exclusion on the basis of such a characteristic gives rise to the appearance of unfairness..."

If that's the best you got, plead the dude guilty and move on to deciding whether or not he should fry.

It's the same in our parish. If you're 70 or older, you can ask to be excused. Considering that in our parish, you are not allowed to take notes in a criminal trial, the age should be dropped to about 50. All jokes aside, there are realities about what happens to short-term memory over time...

I'd say if your case is so weak you're hoping to seat a jury full of people with early-onset Alzheimer's, just stop wasting the court's time.


I guess Ezra has won twitter. You'd look a long time to find a more ridiculous exchange from verified accounts than this.
