I bought it and read it. It's not a good book, but it's really unique. Never seen anything like it. Would recommend for the experience, but don't expect good characters or plot.

 

Edit: Accidentlly typed wouldn't instead of would  :fail:

Wearing headphones without listening to anything while not spending any time outside, locked in a room overgrown with ridiculous plant life, not being able to hold eye contact with anyone, sounds pretty fucking IDM to me,

No no no no no guys you can't let MRI Scans loose ! COME ON. If you're claustrophobic then welcome to the intensely IDM open-field MRI machine :

Show some love to this awesome, non irradiating, non nuclear imagery technique and think of how many knees and stuff have already been saved thanks to this amazing technological prowess !

yesss MRI scans pulled ahead! Nice campaigning stocko.

 

I'm rooting for that but the others are alright. Realized I was WHWLTA-ing for about an hour last night, it was pretty good.

Haha yes hopefully it'll make it to the semi finals, spacious scenes is currently winning but it's just one vote close !!!!

 

Seriously tho, from a medical point of view, MRI is a major improvement.

It's based on magnetic fields spinning protons (and therefore water, and therefore ice water with ice, I don't know how it could get more IDM)...

 

As for the WHWLTA thing, yes, ever since it appeared in the poll I noticed it is something I do quite often !
