In 1990 I had a really bad experience with a character at Circus Circus, I think it was called, which was a B-tier Showbiz Pizza outside of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Axe-Man

'John' who works at sea as a dockworker came into dry dock(which means it was locked up, water pumped out, and left high and dry on blocks) to carry out refit and repairs.

Next to the ship he worked on, was a military frigate being broken down for scrap and when all of it was done, she was left to her fate.

Once all the sensitive stuff had been removed, the dock workers were free to go on. The dock foreman, ‘John’ went on board first with a camera to take pictures of work areas. He took a couple of hundred all in all. The picture on top was one of the ones he took. The area where this picture was taken was in a cross alley way, deep inside the ship. He was going around with a torch and a camera. When he’d go to take a picture, he would turn off the torch (leaving him in total darkness) snap the shot, turn the torch back on and be on his way.

He had no idea who the man in the picture was(the only thing he knew was that he wasn’t one of the dockworkers), as there was supposed to be nobody on the ship. The bottom picture, which is a more cleaned up picture of the one on top shows that the man had an axe.

He doesn’t think it was a ghost, but a man with an axe seems a lot scarier anyway.

Wow I knew Uber was bad but this is ridiculous

Amazon has been trying to do the same thing with delivery vehicles for years, hiring anyone off the street who has a van and a driver’s license as an independent contractor to drive down sources of shipping costs like wages and benefits

Damn.

The Cybernetic Samurai (1986)
by Victor Milan

I have to admit, I passed this book many times on the bookshelf (laughing) before I had the nerve to read it. Despite the slightly uncanny title, the book is rather ingenious for its time. Remembering that Milan wrote it during the genesis of the cyber-punk revolution. An interesting tale about the plight to find a theorem for generating randomness. I believe that die-hard C.P. readers will find this early text an interesting read, especially in comparing with more modern works.

Dragonlords of Werner, Werner & Fulk

Written by Donald L. Brampthorne and Kyle McCulloch

Jon Kabat-Zinn. And the answer to the first question  for me is probably yeah, but barely.

However, if you are looking for a fascinating novelisation of primarily Icelandic texts from hundreds of years ago, detailing the first ecounters between the Norse people and the native people of Greenland and North America—well, then this is for you.
