49/50

Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? Big Questions from Tiny Mortals About Death by Caitlin Doughty (2/2/2020)

1. Accelerate - A living patient's heart rate will accelerate, but a brain-dead patient's heartbeat will not change. (p 155)
2. Accident - But we don't know what would happen if an astronaut had a sudden heart attack, or an accident during a space walk, or choked on some of that freeze-dried ice cream on the way to Mars. (p 25)
5. Brakes/Braking - This puts the brakes on the bacteria that cause decay, which decreases food rot and helps the astronauts avoid unpleasant smells. (p 29)
9. Crew - The crew pulls Lisa back inside, but it's too late to save her. (p 27)
11. Dangerous - If you die at that altitude (which almost three hundred people have done), it is dangerous for the living to attempt to bring your body down for burial or cemation. (p 32)
13. Develop - We develop bonds with our pets. (p 20)
14. Distance - Before the nineteenth century, long-distance transport of fallen soldiers rarely occurred - especially if there were hundreds or thousands of casualities. (p 265)
17. Fuel - They are the death eaters, the organisms that fuel up by consuming dead and rotting things - and bless their hearts! (p 239)
22. Length - The pathologist will remove your intestines (which are nearly as long as a bus), place them in the sink, and slice down their whole length. (p 190)
24. Noise - The other part of the joke is that the deafening popping noise will shock the crematory operator into thinking the crematory is under attack. (p 131)
26. Owner - In this situation, a dog might nibble the lips off her owner, just like you bite your nails or refresh your social media feed. (p 18)
27. Pass + 30. Pressure - As we pass the minute and a half mark, Lisa's heart rate and blood pressure will plummet (to the point where her blood may begin to boil). (p 26)
29. Position - This is yet another way investigators can tell if a body has been lying in a certain position, or on top of something. (p 72)
31. Qualify - For example, if you're joined at the chest or stomache (which most conjoined twins are) and share something like your intestines or liver, your have a much better chance of survival (and are likelier to qualify for separation surgery) than if you are joined at the head. (p 96)
32. Race - But maybe the conversation a million years from now will be about whether to bring the human race back, and the lucky preserved human may just be you! (p 67)
33. Repair - An astronaut, let's call her Dr. Lisa, is outside the space station, puttering away on some routine repair. (p 25)
35. Schedule - Maybe schedule a tweet to go out two weeks after you die? (p 135)
36. Speed - The deeper he is buried, the farther away he is from oxygen, microbes, and other things that speed up the decomposition process. (p 54)
38. Start - In Germany, in the late 1700s, there were physicians who believed that the only way to tell if someone was truly dead was to wait for the person to start rotting - bloating, smelling, the whole works. (p 49)
39. Team + 40. Technology - Their surgical team had virtual reality models, CT scans, MRIs, all the latest technology at their disposal. (p 100)
46. Wall - Take the tale of Matthew Wall, a man living (yes, living) in Braughing, England, in the sixteenth century. (p 149)
50. Yellow (flag) - The hemoglobin ring breaks down into bilirubin (turning you yellow) and biliverding (turning you green). (p 76)

Mr. January (Calendar Men, #1) by Bailey Bradford (2/2/2020)

6. Caution - Gregg moved the cover with caution, not wanting to wake Albert yet. (loc 1319)
16. Finish - "I'd finish if you'd stop interrupting," Albert said. (loc 1760)
21. Lap - Chris answered as Albert climbed onto Gregg's lap. (loc 1796)
28. Points - Instead, heated ecstasy rushed through him, up from his ass to all points of pleasure in his body. (loc 1642)
44. Vehicle - Gregg had the vehicle unlocked by the time they reached it. (loc 1587)

Work in Progress (Cook County, #1) by B.J. Harvey (2/3/2020)

3. Ambitious - "I'd like to think of myself as ambitious." (p 66)
4. Bank - "I wanted this, I started it, and until we have a bigger surplus in the bank to back us up, I'll cover any shortfalls." (p 52)
10. Crowd - The crowd of our friends and family snicker. (p 199)
19. Helmet - "Yo," Bryant says, putting his helmet inside the cab of the truck before moving around us and nearly jumping on my back. (p 24)
20. Inspection - April: Did the inspection go well? (p 110)
41. Throttle - I need to make a quick escape to remove myself before I make a fool of myself or, equally possible; I throttle this man for being annoying and having dimples. (p 18)
47. Windshield - He faces the windshield. (p 33)

Curious Minds (Knight and Moon, #1) by Janet Evanovich (2/6/20)

18. Grid - "I'm going off the grid." (p 187)
34. Safety - "A little safety tip," Varnet said, crossing to a large cabinet, opening the doors. (p 161)
42. Tire - "I can change the oil and rotate the tires." (p 231)
49. Wreck - "He was supposed to die the car wreck, but he insisted on fighting us and hit his head on a rock." (p 344)

Reader, Come Home The Reading Brain in a Digital World by Maryanne Wolf (2/8/20)

12. Defend - Wheter writing about humanism's decline or fear's capacity to diminish the very values its proponents purport to defend, she conceptualizes the power of books to help us understand the perspective of pthers as an antidote to the fears and prejudices many people harbor, often unknowingly. (p 75)

The Displaced Refugee Writers on Refugee Lives by Viet Thanh Nguyen (2/10/20)

37. Sponsor - One sponsor took my parents, another took my brother, a third took me. (p 10)
48. Winner - Lev Golinkin is the author of A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka, Amazon's Debut of the Month, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers program selection, and winner of the Premio Salerno Libro d'Europa. (p 234)

Dangerous Minds (Knight and Moon, #2) by Janet Evanovich (2/13/20)

45. Victory - "Where there is no contention there is neither victory nor defeat,” Wayan Bagus offered. (p 83)

Twice Shy (The Power of Love, #1) by Mona Ingram (2/15/20)

23. Mechanic - "The mechanic told me he'd have my car fixed by tonight, but now he says no." (loc 1322)

The Disappearing Spoon And Other True Tales from the Periodic Table by Sam Kean (2/25/20)

7. Collision - In 1994, the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet collided with it, the first intergalactic collision humans ever witnessed. (p 103)
8. Competition - You can’t drink gold, and as more and more miners piled in, the prices of supplies soared, and competition for mining sites grew fierce. (p 324)
15. Fans - And unfortunately for science fiction fans, silicon just can’t do the wondrous tricks carbon can. (p 56)
43. Traction - The analogy to the sun’s companion star was that if earthly creatures (say, dinosaurs) evolved toward true intelligence, Nemesis would wipe them out before they got traction. (p 512)

Of course, I'll schedule in some naughty time, always got time for that.
