True Grit

A long time ago when a man was a man, a woman was aTrue-Grit woman and a horse was, well, a horse there came along a real hero. His name was Rooster Cogburn, played by John Wayne in the original version of the classic western movie True Grit. Rooster is a tough marshal who decides to help a woman get even for her father’s death. Basically her problem becomes his problem.

So, to have some fun I tried an experiment; I rearranged the 1,000-odd chapters in one of his books into a random sequence (I admit that took a while) and then started to read the book again. The interesting thing is that this had no effect on the plot. I even started reading the book at chapter 1,023 and it didn’t seem to matter that the previous chapters had been skipped.

This is truly a neat device, if I may say so myself. It’s powered by brain waves rather than the more conventional battery (which is oh-so last century technology), and has a touch screen that responds appropriately to any part of your body - not just your finger.
