    i need something to read... any suggestions?

    im a fan of political (although not really conspiracy voodoo and aliens, illuminati) shit...
    stories that parallel biblical tales are good...
    things that teach you some sort of lesson.... kind of like masters of the universe...


    any ideas?

    I jacked this book a few years ago. This book was made for writers.
    Read the parts about scaling barbed wire fences, creeping up on fools,
    and hiding yourself, youll see what I mean.

    Skip "Brief History", and scoop "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene. More complete, more compelling, more recent.

    And if you're in a pseudo-math geek/philosophy/technology mood, "Godel, Escher and Bach" by Douglas Hoftstadter is where it's hizzat. Beer,
