Heinlein maneuver?

I guess I am just being lazy about blogging, but between the long drive and having to readjust to the East Coast, I am not feeling terribly creative.

Which makes me really glad to have found another wonderful test -- this one from the mysterious, multifaceted Ghost of a Flea. It is called "Which Heinlein Book Should You Have Been A Character In?" -- and my research assistant Justin Case damned well better evaluate this test, because he's the scifi freak, and I don't think there's much he hasn't read.

Anyway, here are the results:

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
You belong in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. You
value freedom above all else. You would fight
and die for your family and your home.

Thanks Ghost! The results look very flattering, and now I'll have to ask Justin what's up!

But why can't I be the cat who walks through walls?

It's all part of gamma radiation exposure. Walking through walls is only one of many super abilities which resulted from the accident.

I read "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" when I was eleven. In fact, it was one of the first sf books I had ever read. Time for a re-read!

Love it!  I ended up in Starship Troopers, though (sigh).  That's just the age we're in, I guess — Islamofascists instead of Bugs.  I think it's a huge oversight, however, leaving Glory Road out of the running!

Wow, Michael, what a pleasure it is to hear from you! I read your inescapably thorough analysis of the depleted uranium non-threat, and all I can say is that I hope you are being paid a HUGE salary by one of the leading think tanks in this country. If not, then that is another example of What Is Wrong.
