I am not responsible for those individuals who are of sufficiently
limited experience that their box doesn't include a *very* wide range
of possibilities. *Or* it might simply be that their box includes
such a large amount of "flatness" that something the size of
a stake on which people could be impaled simply gets dwarfed

Why I thought it was the "Spike Jones autobiography!" I thought for sure he had written his memoirs and they were getting the due respect they deserved. And now I find out it's a novel by Damien Broderick to be published in the U.S.!
Now was Vlad the Impaler very extropian? I hate to think he was! We each have differing boxes as we go through life and they do change.
I read about you in "Wired." Making respectable scientists sweat huh? So if I go to the next Extro conference I am going to be one of many Larry Flynts! I'd rather be a Hugh Hefner.
