    1) I was going to choose Six Ars for the weird title but clicking on that link just takes me to a list with Six Years on it instead. I'll choose that one anyway.
    2) Chen's La Mer.

    Six Ars:

    - a murder mystery involving a group of Latinists

    Spoiler


    - an adventure story about colorful 17th-century pirates transplanted to the sobersides 1990s, in which time they're forced to pare down their idiosyncrasies and take amusement park jobs
    - the Marquis de Sade meets Sarah Waters meets E. L. James meets William T. Vollmann
    - fresh out of the Army, a nice white lady teaches the supposedly unteachable at the Dalton School in New York

    Shishkova/Naumov, though I preferred watching Kovarikova/Novotny

    Of the four parts of Gulliver's Travels, which do you find makes you most amused/angry/interested/moved

    1. Lilliput
    2. Brobdingnag
    3. Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubbdubdrib, and Japan
    4. The Country of the Houyhnhnms

    Me, too.

    I haven't read Gulliver's Travels (and I hope no one reading this will be knocked down by that disclosure), but I'm almost certain that Part IV would amuse, interest, and move me the most.

    I suppose so, but I'll think about you differently from now on.

    I only read the sexual parts.

    I haven't read any of those. But i DID inadvertendly watch the preview for Beautiful Creatures. Looks hideous.

    If you could be transported into another place through your TV set, where would you prefer to live - Peyton Place or Pleasantville?

    With a few years' preparation, yes. Could I finish in the upper 90% as far as shortest possible times go? Never.

    more fun:

    walking briskly
    or
    slowly?

    yes

    ETA: walking briskly. Actually, I walk extremely fast naturally and inadvertently leave people in the dust all the time.

    Should ISU institute a mandatory "Compulsory" program similar to those used in gymnastics 1996 and prior?
