  1. For anyone interested in naval history (very broad range of subjects). Drachinifel-Naval Historiographer.
  2. Xanax is a brand name of the generic benzo ALPRAZOLAM Whereas the generic Benzodiazepne CLONAZEPAM is marketed as Rivotril and Paxam in Australia along with other brand names in Canada and the US. Please do not confuse the two as they have markedly different potency and half lives-and,as always,consult your doctor.
  3. 'Life Is Beautiful'(Italy,1997) 'As it is in Heaven'(Sweden,2004) 'The Italian'(Russia,2005) Tho' the last movie has a purportedly happy ending...the selling of orphans in Russia is a very sombre story indeed.
  4. Agreed-and Camus too. I had a fun time a few months ago reading Alexandre Dumas' 'The Three Musketeers'..beautifully written with such verve and panache!
  5. One must remember that most of the major "blockbusters" of the 19th century..Thackeray,Trollope,Dickens etc were written for weekly or monthly serialization in magazines..spinning the yarn along benefited everyone... The great Polish novel 'With Fire and Sword (3 volumes) by Henryk Sienkiewicz was published the same way. By the way 'The Voyage of the Beagle' is still a great read..Darwin was not forced to hang around his computer all day waiting for some response from Reddit..comparing it to 'BuckyBeavor and the Autobots.'
