Nope, not even close ... until I start eating my cichlids.

You laugh, but I have one of Axelrod's books in which there's a photo of an native Amazon Basin family frying up a discus for breakfast.

Well, don't tell Lane about telapia ....

But discus? Damn, you gotta be desperate for calories to eat a discus.

You could probably say the same about crawfish, but I'll gladly eat a few pounds of them. I'll bet discus (discii?) get pretty big in the wild.

Latest recommendations, by category:

Crafts, Hobbies, and Home Books: Sturmgeshutz III On The Battlefield 3. Because world conquest is such a fulfilling hobby!

Science Fiction and Fantasy Books: Field Hydrology.

Christian Books and Bibles: Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture. Well, I'm glad someone thinks we're Christians.

Engineering and Transportation Books: Combined Arms Warfare in the 20th Century

Teen and Young Adult Books: America in Vietnam: A Documentary History

Business and Investing Books: Shattered Consensus: The Rise and Decline of America's Postwar Political Order

It's not that these titles aren't of interest to me. Mostly. It's the idiosyncrasies of the way the recommendation engine categorized them.

I've heard (read) Field Hydrology is derivative and not suitable for anyone under 27.
