1. a book by john steinbeck that's called "the most american of american classics" and yet still manages to carry the theme of marxism through the entire story.
basically a long rant about politics/economy in the 1930's on 2. the odd numbered chapters. the rest is the story of a family. the events that occur are not in any way pieced together by the end of the book and leave the reader feeling empty and confused. the only worthwhile chapter is chapter 25.
-government camps run entirely by the people
-the rich manipulate the poor
-talks about all of the horrible things that come with industrialization
-hints at a revolution and how it is inevitable when the poor get angry (see chapter 19)

-negative view of capitalism and its effects
2. "Burn coffee for fuel in the ships. Burn corn to keep warm, it makes a hot fire. Dump potatoes in the rivers and place guards along the banks to keep the hungry people from fishing them out. Slaughter the pigs and bury them, and let the putrescence drip down into the earth.
There is a crime here that goes beyond denunciation. There is a sorrow here that weeping cannot symbolize. There is a failure here that topples all our success. The fertile earth, the straight tree rows, the sturdy trunks, and the ripe fruit. And children dying of pellagra must die because a profit cannot be taken from an orange. And coroners must fill in the certificates--died of malnutrition--because the food must rot, must be forced to rot.
The people come with nets to fish for potatoes in the river, and the guards hold them back; they come in rattling cars to get the dumped oranges, but the kerosene is sprayed. And they stand still and watch the potatoes float by, listen to the screaming pigs being killed in a ditch and covered with quicklime, watch the mountains of oranges slop down to a putrefying ooze; and in the eyes of the people there is a failure; and in the eyes o...
Taking a bite out of a FrozeFruit bar(by Bluebunny) or popsicle approaching from the side rather than from the top, which is the more conventional method here on Earth. A person may employ this technique to avoid someone elses frozen slobber(back-ice), or to sabotage the integrity of the frozen fruit bar's architecture....thereby, exposing the beneficial owner of the FrozeFruit bar to the catastrophic risk of a big mess.
Boy says to girl, "let me give that popsicle a haircut"
Girl hands her FrozeFruit bar(by Bluebunny) to boy and then says, "Dont shark bite it, bitch." Boy takes a shark-bite real fast and says "I don't want any of your back-ice." as he hands it back to the girl.
2 minutes later, whats left of the popsicle falls off of the stick onto the white carpet.
One of the most praised of tropical fruits, and certainly the most esteemed fruit in the family Guttiferae, the mangosteen, Garcinia mangostana L., is almost universally known or heard of by this name. There are numerous variations in nomenclature: among Spanish-speaking people, it is called mangostan; to the French, it is mangostanier, mangoustanier, mangouste or mangostier; in Portuguese, it is mangostao, mangosta or mangusta; in Dutch, it is manggis or manggistan; in Vietnamese, mang cut; in Malaya, it may be referred to in any of these languages or by the local terms, mesetor, semetah, or sementah; in the Philippines, it is mangis or mangostan. Throughout the Malay Archipelago, there are many different spellings of names similar to most of the above.more...

1 First Chuck made heaven & earth 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of the beard was moving over the face of the waters. 3 And Chuck said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. 4 And Chuck saw that the light was good; and Chuck separated the light from the darkness. 5 Chuck Norris called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 And Chuck said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." 7 And Chuck made the firmament and separated the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so. 8 And Chuck called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 And Norris said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear." And it was so. 10 Chuck Norris called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And Chuck saw that it was good. 11 And Chuck Norris said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And Chuck saw that it was good...more...
