Little known fact pertaining to film: In the final scene to Evil Dead, we see from the camera's perspective, the thing that lives in the woods approach Bruce and overtake him. In actuality, that's Sam Raimi on a moped, and that's a real scream.

Best historical non fiction book: Since I care little for historical nonfiction, lets pick one at random from my father's bookshelf that sounds non-fictional. The End of Blackness. Disclaimer:I take no responsibility for any confusion that reading this book may incur, as I am unwilling to actually confirm that it is in any way historical, or non-fictional.
Best sci-fi book: A Clockwork Orange.
Best instructional book: The Zombie Survival Gude by Max Brooks.
Little know fact pertaining to books: East Of Eden was actually not very well recieved at the time of its release. Reviewers were generally of the opinion that it was a mess of an attempt to tell a story.
Party you align yourself with most: Libertarians.
How do you feel about abortion: Abortions for all.
Gay marriages: Firstly, marriage is a religious institution, and thusly, has no place carrying any social or legal ramifications. In my opinion, who has a right to marry does not matter nearly as much as what rights (if any) marriage should entail. Imagine the outrage it would cause if it was proposed that a bar mitzvah carry with it a special set of legal loopholes and ramifications. In any case, things being as they are, to deny homosexuals the right to marriage is, in a sense, denying them a facet of religious freedom, in the same capacity as if we had completely outlawed headscarves for muslims in public.
Rascism: It is an inevitable, but perhaps unfortunate result of evolutionary psychology. In reality, it is a natural inclination to be innately biased against those in a percieved outgroup.
Our "war on terrorism": You cannot fight a war on an institution, and expect to be successful.
War in general: War is also a fairly natural part of the human condition. I shudder to think what a society that didn't fight over petty things like land, and who's skin color is the better would put on the 10:00 news.
