Please excuse any typing errors in this post. It's hard to proof-read on my monitor at the moment.

Syphon of some fuel from a car (neighbors car will do fine) and wipe the screen. Works for me every time I have finish proof reading a document. . Oh, don't use any pot scourer - they are really not good for the contrast.

Don't get caught then you won't need a bail bondsman. And don't take ALL of the fuel.

Of course you could just ask the neighbour if has a thimble full of fuel for you but where is the fun and adventure in that

Yes, an impressive lead. I can't really complain about losing out to a book over three times ahead of my choice, currently second.

Well, actually I can, come to think of it. It's this terrible "first past the post" system we have here. The opposition to "The Mysterious Island" is split amongst all the 'minor' books. If we had an Alternative Vote, Single Transferrable Vote, or even a run-off between first and second, I'm sure "Kim" would win!

I've wondered about that also. I think right now it is 35 for first place and about 44 votes spread throughout the other books.

I wonder what would happen if there was a run off? Would everyone come back and vote again? Could first place winner actually lose in a run off? Interesting thought.
