-Read the entire Lord of the Rings series

It's a doorstopper, but not 3 months. Even with the Hobbit and Silmarillion, as MattBaker suggests, it's only going to be a matter of weeks, rather than months.

I'm sure I could do it in a week with no work to do and no other forms of entertainment within reach.

Take a walk.
Like, walk across China and Russia to Europe.
If you hitch-hike along the way you should get across within a few months.

One of our apprentices at work has build a beer case float with his friends and documented the first voyage. It was surprisingly stable in the water and had a very good cargo capacity... but was poorly maneuvrable.

I had also build a few floats in my youth, but never something I would consider a boat. I had been more the rocket aircraft guy.

Presidente Obama hindered in his evil plots because one of his minions has filled his car with Diesel fuel, instead of Gasoline. Welcome to the old world! :lol:

Having one is fine and all, but no one should be pressured to.

But if you have an excess of free time, having one is a good choice. Suddenly you have a constant lack of free time, but don't feel bad about it.

If a winter storm happens after the first day of spring, is it still a winter storm?

If there's a blizzard in August, is it a blizzard or a summer thunderstorm?

Calendar winter simply doesn't coincide with actual winter. The land is white from late November to mid April, usually.

What is this spring of which you speak? I have two seasons here in California: Summer and Winter. If you're lucky, you get to enjoy a day or two of spring. :p
