Adam "T4nky" Sherman is an Event Specialist (basically that guy who hands out free samples,) and semi-professional author. He loves writing, and has been doing so since second or first grade. He also was sometimes that guy who actually liked writing reports, so I'm not sure you can trust him.

His first story was about a headless horsecat that had guns for some reason. It even had really terrible drawings to go with it. He's gotten a lot better at writing since then and decided to leave the drawing to professionals.

After multiple attempts at writing stories, some he's more proud of than others, he eventually wrote and published Glad You're Not Here, the first volume of the Nowhere Island University series. He hopes to write a lot more.

So, it’s been two years. Two years since this became a thing. I’m not going to say that this is the serial that changed everything, or will change everything. Honestly, if you go solely by numbers, NIU should have changed nothing. However, numbers lie a hell of a lot.


For instance, my life has been changed. Whether for better or worse, its hard to to say. I mean, I’ve only been doing this for tw...

A Short History of China by Gordon Kerr

Pretty good overview of China's history. It's a little dry, but it gives you a basic overview that you don't get in school including the various political philosophies to come out of the country.

Adam Sherman and 6 other people liked Jon Ronson's blog post: A deleted scene from Frank
"Looking through my old Frank files, I found this deleted scene. It was to be towards the end of the movie. Jon has lost Frank. But he’s been given a lead - via Twitter - as to where he might find him…(Sorry for the weird formatting)… EXT. RURAL..." Read more of this blog post »
Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden
“And yet these Americans, with their helicopters and laser-guided weapons and shock-troop Rangers were going to somehow sort it out in a few weeks? Arrest Aidid and make it all better? They were trying to take down a clan, the most ancient and efficient social organization known to man. Didn’t the Americans realize that for every leader they arrested there were dozens of brothers, cousins, sons, and nephews to take his place? Setbacks just strengthened the clan’s resolve. Even if the Habr Gidr were somehow crippled or destroyed, wouldn’t that just elevate the next most powerful clan? Or did the Americans expect Somalia to suddenly sprout full-fledged Jeffersonian democracy?”

Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden
“(Somalia) was a watershed," said one State Department official, "The idea used to be that terrible countries were terrible because good, decent, innocent people were being oppressed by evil, thuggish leaders. Somalia changed that. Here you have a country where just about everybody is caught up in hatred and fighting. You stop an old lady on the street and ask her if she wants peace, and she’ll say, yes, of course, I pray for it daily. All the things you’d expect her to say. Then ask her if she would be willing for her clan to share power with another in order to have that peace, and she’ll say, 'With those murderers and thieves? I’d die first.' People in these countries - Bosnia is a more recent example - don’t want peace. They want victory. They want power. Men, women, old and young. Somalia was the experience that taught us that people in these places bear much of the responsibility for things being the way they are. The hatred and the killing continues because they want it to.
