1000 hits of acid.
Somebody else posted that it was a hundred. That is incorrect. 100 is a sheet or page. 10 is a strip and 10,000 is a bible.
I used to get books for $1450.

In the twilight zone, an episode which showed the dissappereance of humankind, there was one guy left in the world, a bookish type of person that read all the books that he possibly could.
In the end of the episode, he finds out he had all the time in the world to read every single book in human history, the problem was, that he broke his glasses, and could not read any book. he screamed "I had all the time in the world!"

Lesson of the episode? Dont take things for granted.


Books are cool, if you find the time to get interested in one that is.

Awesome, enjoyable, fine, good. A substitute for the word "cool". Can be used in any situation when one is satisfied or content with the outcome of a situation. Can also be used to describe past situations. It is also applicable to any other instance that is not mentioned here.

The word book can also be used in a phrase that connects it to the other definition of book, an article of reading.
"That movie was book dude."

"Is that a new haircut? Lookin' book man!"

"That concert was so book, the library can't even compete!"

one of the greater objects to fill free time with. reading a book induces feelings and thoughts not attainable anywhere else.
some of the best books are "the perks of being a wallflower", "harry potter", and "to kill a mockingbird"
