Four bloody marys, two grapefruits, a half pound of breakfast meats, six lines of coke, a quart of milk and more all for breakfast for one crazy drug-riddled writer.
They’re both known for their rock and roll lifestyles and bizarre ramblings, so can you tell the who said these 15 quotes, Hunter S. Thompson or Charlie Sheen?

Speaking of great authors, while I do have a definitive lust for the written word, I have to say that I would never actually want to make love to Ray Bradbury or Kurt Vonnegut, no matter how much I adore their works.
Funny enough, there is an image of Ray Bradbury watching this steamy video tribute to his greatness. Something tells me he wouldn’t turn her down.
For the low, low price of only one million dollars, you could be the proud owner of J.D. Salinger’s used, uncleaned commode. Of course, I’d expect you to add on another 10% to the deal as a finders fee for your humble blog author here.

Thank you Mental Floss for boosting my confidence today.
Remember when you were an angry little teenager and hated high school. If you wrote at all at the time, you probably had at least one silly story where bad things happened at school. William Poole of Kentucky is the same way.
He wrote a short story about zombies taking over a high school -and was arrested with felony charges. According to Connecticut look up His bail is $5000 and should be paid in full prior release.
“Anytime you make any threat or possess matter involving a school or function it’s a felony in the state of Kentucky,” said Winchester Police detective Steven Caudill.”
Seriously, this is some bogus crap. I remember before the whole columbine thing, I had wrote a short story about a little girl with fish bowls for eyes. The other kids pushed her in a fountain. When fish swam in her eyes, she could see for the first time and noticed how much the other kids hated her, so she shot them.
It was a stupid story, something to get my angst about school out in a creative, non-threatening way. The kids who write these things aren’t the kids that will blow up the school. Nowadays, they love to take anyone who seems alienated and push them further towards the edge. The idea should be acceptance and understanding, not more hatred. My god these people are retarded.

â€œIf you want your writing to be taken seriously, don’t marry and have kids, and above all, don’t die. But if you have to die, commit suicide. They approve of that.â€ -Ursula K. Le Guin
Fact of the Day:
The term â€œmoronâ€ comes from the eugenic movement. Coined by Henry Goddard, an early eugenic founder, it comes from the Greek word moros, meaning â€œstupid and foolish.â€ We use the term lightly these days as a kind of vague, almost teasing insult. For Goddard and the eugenic community, a â€œmoronâ€ was anyone deemed unfit for life and indeed a target to be eliminated. –Source
