I found this great site for desktop wallpaper/backgrounds that is loaded with just about any sort of background image you could ever want.

As taken from the 'about' section of the site: Remember reading that much famed piece of literature, hallowing book reading classes wherever you went, set aloft high on a proverbial mountain top with few or no peers, seemingly the summit of mankindís possibilities to express one self?

Yeah, turns out it is a bit of a nuisance to read through it all. Long winded plots, references piled atop of each other, one obscurer than the other, while contemporary literature studies add various notions about psychological driving forces and gender distribution to the already bothersome book.

As if the book itself was ok in its day, but so much got tacked on over time it soared high above everything else, pushed onwards by the expectations and exaltations of so many readers, critics and literature proffessors. And what comes up, must come down. Lifted up over the horse and then fallen down, having been launched too far and too high.

Then one might wonder, what is left? This.

I personally quite like this one. What do you guys think?
A terrible enfant called Peter/
Once sprinkled his bed with a gheeter/
His father got whoost/
Took hold of a cnoost/
And gave him a pack on his meeter.

I'll have to read and watch first, but it's not bad to see a platform to kind of downplay the occasional over the top "OMG YOU HAVE TO READ THIS".
"Titans are the God-Machines of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Imagine a city. Now imagine that city is angry at you, can walk, and has continent leveling weapons aimed at you. And is inhabited by more things that hate you. You have a rough idea of a Titan."

"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied chains us all irrevocably." Judge Aaron Satie
