well, lame. no more summer camp to read. now i gotta wait for next chapter, bleh

so anyhow, if there's so much (*points at posts*) to see in a couple chapters of a porn story, imagine how much is in something better, if you just know how to look.

Very true.

Peter F Hamilton writes decent sci-fi, but I spent half the time reading cringing at his attitude towards children and sociobiology... two things I rather like to think might IMPROVE in the future, you know?

Of course, in his sci-fi sociobiology is proven by his made up science, and this is not a big deal. This is a minor aside. Frustrating.

That's really cool. I'm going to try to look at things more closely now. (Maybe I should start a blog some time...)

About "how to look", do you have any tips or suggestions?

how to look -- hard to put in English. which is why I wanted to demonstrate instead. but, for one thing, I often see things I was thinking about recently. for example DD mentioned the argument from ignorance fallacy, and then I spotted like 5 of them in the next week. i'm not sure I'd ever spotted one explicitly before. if something is important enough, i'll end up remembering it for a long time, and also be reminded of it b/c i run into it. eventually you can build up many things you know how to spot.
