Before we get too far, is this thread gonna be about Titan, Vonnegut, baking, or hot buns? Because I vote for hot buns.

It's gonna be about Jesus, because clearly he put that cross there 6,000 years ago when he created the cosmos!

I haven't read the article, but i found the references in the headline scattered but interesting. If only the subby could have worked in tralfamadorians...

I think Titan is far more interesting than Mars. The fact that it has an active water cycle (except with hydrocarbons) is amazing.

I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

/This thread should have been about the Butlerian Jihad.

Can it please be about the boardgame Titan? Ridiculously fun. Get some friends together and clear a few hours out.

I love how nothing's obscure on Fark.

Now, is the book sci-fi or philosophy? Makes it hard to shelve.

If the feature is created by extreme heat, why does only one appear on Venus?

Vonnegutt has his own shelf in my library. Problem solved.

Yeah, I ad to sub and run. Wish I had said "Not shown: sirens."

So it goes.

PS: Salo was a Tralfamadoran, so your argument is invalid.

The second half of the article about the stability of Titan's "northern lake region" is even more interesting, if you ask me.

A seriously underread trilogy. Excellent story and far-out sci-fi. Even better, I think each book is better than the last. Demon is so much fun.
