I was recently conned by Amazon.com to purchase (for a minuscule price) a kindle novel by a new author. I managed to read the whole thing even though it turned out to be one of those ridiculous zombie stories as told by a longtime dedicated methamphetamine addict. It was terrible, and I don't even remember the author's name so I will be unable to recognize him if another of his offerings is touted by Amazon in the future. I suppose I could go back to my Kindle and find out his name, but I don't really care enough to expend that much energy for such a minimal purpose.
Did You Know . . .?
Women can see more shades of red than men. The gene that allows us to see the color red is on the X chromosome, of which men only have 1. Because women have 2, they can see crimson, maroon, cardinal, ruby, and scarlet, but men may only see light red and dark red.
WORD FOR TODAY
In Haitian folklore, a zombie is an animated corpse raised by magical means, such as witchcraft. The concept has been popularly associated with the Voodoo religion, but it plays no part in that faith's formal practices.
