Marxist history at its most turgid and unreadable, I'm afraid. I actually read the aforementioned book once, got to the end and realised that I hadn't taken in a bit of it.

You will not win, Rob. After I'm done with Das Kapital, I'm going to start on Toynbee's A Study of History, all 12 volumes, unabridged. You probably have already read it so you should know that it's the longest written work ever composed in the English language. Then there's Plato's Republic. Then maybe Nietsche's Beyond Good and Evil. There are just so many great classics that I want to share with AGers. It's just a matter of time you know. I will be victorious.

Bring it on. I haven't actually read Toynbee, but I shall make a point of asking awkward questions about each section you post .

What are you a liberal arts major at Oxford or something? Jesus cripes, is there anything you don't enjoy reading? You must be a bookworm like me. Then how about if I start posting about all the sexual fantasies I have ever had one by one. I am immensely creative and more that one women who I have been with accused me of being a big time pervert so it should be an interesting read. That is unless you stop posting and let me win.

Right...well, that'll be Lacey out of the running, then. That only leaves you and me, Gilly. You and me.
In response to your fantasies, I'll start posting tales of my past exploits.
Granted, after reading them there won't be a single person on this forum who can look me in the avatar, but I'll win this contest.
Think I'm bluffing? Bring it on.

IX. Hiawatha and the Pearl-Feather

On the shores of Gitche Gumee,
Of the shining Big-Sea-Water,
Stood Nokomis, the old woman,
Pointing with her finger westward,
O'er the water pointing westward,
To the purple clouds of sunset.

Fiercely the red sun descending
Burned his way along the heavens,
Set the sky on fire behind him,
As war-parties, when retreating,
Burn the prairies on their war-trail;
And the moon, the Night-sun, eastward,
Suddenly starting from his ambush,
Followed fast those bloody footprints,
Followed in that fiery war-trail,
With its glare upon his features.

And Nokomis, the old woman,
Pointing with her finger westward,
Spake these words to Hiawatha:
"Yonder dwells the great Pearl-Feather,
Megissogwon, the Magician,
Manito of Wealth and Wampum,
Guarded by his fiery serpents,
Guarded by the black pitch-water.
You can see his fiery serpents,
The Kenabeek, the great serpents,
Coiling, playing in the water;
You can see the black pitch-water
Stretching far away beyond them,
To the purple clouds of sunset!

"He it was who slew my father,
By his wicked wiles and cunning,
When he from the moon descended,
When he came on earth to seek me.
He, the mightiest of Magicians,
Sends the fever from the marshes,
Sends the pestilential vapors,
Sends the poisonous exhalations,
Sends the white fog from the fen-lands,
Sends disease and death among us!

"Take your bow, O Hiawatha,
Take your arrows, jasper-headed,
Take your war-club, Puggawaugun,
And your mittens, Minjekahwun,
And your birch-canoe for sailing,
And the oil of Mishe-Nahma,
So to smear its sides, that swiftly
You may pass the black pitch-water;
Slay this merciless magician,
Save the people from the fever
That he breathes across the fen-lands,
And avenge my father's murder!"

I never said that I would enjoy reading it, merely that I would .

I'd suggest that it would be a good way to get the topic locked, actually . But then you might not be declared the winner...

As a mod and therefore part of the staff, aren't you exempt from winning contests?

I don't think he's a mod. He gets his italicized looks from writing for the site.

Scott has a great point. though, there's gotta be a rule against AG staff members winning a contest or something. Too bad, Rob. That must mean that I, and only I, can be the winner.

Whenever I post, the thread usually dies.

So there.

[Pee Wee Herman] was busted on July 26, 1991, at an adult theater in Sarasota, Florida, on charges of exposing himself and (allegedly) really enjoying himself during the show. He eventually pleaded no contest to the exposure charge and got slapped with community service and a $50 fine. But the damage was done--mainly in the form of his police booking shot, a stark, grainy image reproduced around the world.

Hey, Lynsie, I don't think you had moved to that town yet around the time this happened.
