Project X – D

For all the bionic details about what led to the Creation of Project X, please visit the Intro Post. It’s totally worth six million bionic dollars.

LIKE
Dune

While I am not sure that Dune is my favoritest book ever, it is pretty close! . Outside of the Bible, Dune is the one book I have re-read the most. By that metric I guess it is my favorite. (Way-Farer is the only other novel that I’ve re-read as many times)

DISLIKE
Dogs

And this is where Project X goes where Angels Fear to Tread. I was run over by an over-enthusiastic dog when I was a young boy and that has shaped my outlook ever since. To be honest, it’s not “dogs” per se that I dislike, but untrained dogs and their forsaken lazy no good useless owners. Get your forsaken dog fixed and trained and then I’ll like dogs.


As you can see, Project X doesn’t shy away from the tough topics of our day. Our Bionic Eye, much like the eye of sauron, gazes ceaselessly across the internet of things to tell you our opinion on The Things.

  1. I did think Dune was outstanding, but don’t think I’d read it again. I have a couple of books I go back to, The Stand of course, and The Manda Scott 4 book series about Boudicca, also intending to re-do James Clavell’s asian series thanks to Alex de Gaul. Dogs, I’ve had a few, none of whomst ever ran over any children, (I never taught them to drive. 😀 :D) but cats are my first go-to pet. Dogs are good animals but have to be kept under control.

    1. Shogun is my favorite of the Asian Saga too and at some point I’ll re-read it. But not the rest of the series.

      Now, if dogs used cars to run people over, I might actually be ok with that! 😀

    1. I would say then, if you’ve made it this far into the series and are enjoying it that you’ll enjoy the rest of Frank’s Dune Chronicles. I look forward to what you think of them 🙂

    1. Dune is one of my most highly recommended books. I consider it a Classic and not just a SF Classic.

      I wouldn’t have held it against you if you had. I know dog people can be pretty intense…

  2. There’s nothing worse than untrained dogs and I certainly blame the owners! Owners who don’t pick up dog mess are a pet hate of mine, and our neighbour’s dog barks every time someone or something moves in a 25 metre square radius, which drives us mad!

  3. That’s unfortunate that you had a bad experience as a young boy with dogs. I hate to hear that. They really are wonderful companions; although, unruly dogs are a pain.

    I have Dune on my list. Glad to hear it’s a favorite. 👍

  4. I’m in the same boat with you when it comes to dogs, right up to and including getting trampled by one when I was little. I was afraid of them for most of my childhood; though after living with (a much smaller) one for a few years, I’ve learned that they’re really only a reflection of their owners and how they take care of them.

      I didn’t think of it that way until you mentioned it but my attitude towards dogs is pretty much the same as towards people. If there weren’t anymore, I’d be ok with that 😉

  5. I can sympathize with your feelings about dogs after that childhood incident, since something similar happened to me when I was a kid, and made me very uneasy when faced with dogs. But things can change, and they did for me, mostly thanks to a friend’s sweet and intelligent Golden Retriever, who taught me a lot about humanity’s best four-legged friends and the way they can teach you to enjoy their company. Who knows, maybe you will meet your own world-changing, friendly dog one of these days… 🙂

        1. No, more like korectthot or truthspeech. That idea. And I’m not stopping you from writing all the lovey dovey doggy things you want. Go for it!
          Something haiku’ish maybe , in either 5-7-5 or 5-7-9….
