The size of that asshole cannot be measured with existing technology. Nice job, John Scalzi, for exposing such dude-itude.

I seriously wondered whether I’d be able to sip or if I’d be forced – again – to drink deeply until the cup ran dry. Turns out not much sipping went on.

I ended up enjoying this one at least as much as her others, which is strange to me since, as…
