"If you're listening to this, you're a crazy person." Unto us a new tagline is born
This is the longest and most in-depth story, too.
@mimithedog good trolls and bad trolls, I've seen 'em all and my dear/ I'm still here
@IBentMyWookie thank you, you have good taste in shirts
@Laura Hazard Owen@twitter I love that. It sort of encapsulates the spirit of the whole event.
@KenWheaton there's still time
@KenWheaton Ha, well, there's that. For an extremely thorough breakdown of Chad's book's likeliness to earn its publisher money (it likely will!), this article is recommended reading: http://www.amazon.com/Vanity-Fairs-Book-Born-ebook/dp/B005LEWYYU
um sorry to be shrill but seriously, can we reexamine our knee-jerk response to "big advances," people? Authors are not the enemy!
@KenWheaton why should authors need "forgiveness" when they get relatively big advances? Chad will probably take another long time to write his next book. His agent got 15% of that money and the IRS got a quarter. Elite athletes and actors regularly get Chad's advance TIMES A HUNDRED. Why is that okay and it's not okay for authors to VERY OCCASIONALLY make money from their books? This country's priorities are so fucked.
This is the recipe by the way http://www.healthygreenkitchen.com/homemade-protein-bars.html they're pretty good, especially if you, um, bake them for twice as long as we did.
