The majority of Dad's books were about,
in order of volume,
(including this one by the same guy that wrote
The Neo-Tech Discovery).
But then Bunny came across one that is so out there it's way past left field—Introduction to the Cards: A comprehensive guide to understanding the ancient science of a deck of cards
(here's the website for the curious—I could not find the “book” on Amazon,
I could understand if Dad thought it had something to do with the mathematics of cards or poker,
but even a cursory glance at it reveals it's nothing but Tarot with regular playing cards.
It's hard to take this seriously.
Even the the book itself doesn't take itself seriously:
“Cards of Illumination Inc. takes no responsiblity for any interpretations presented.”
I wonder what made Dad pay $5.00 (back in October of 2007) for this?
Were the authors cute or something?
What an odd find.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
