      Didn’t Noah Eli Gordon already do this?

      Seth Abramson writes that much every night

      Yes, he inspires such confidence in his abilities.  I don’t think he’d write 50 books in a year, but maybe 50 pages.

      No offense, but doesn’t ya’ boy Bill Knott deserve 50k? And, he could write 50 decent books in a year.

      at first I thought this was Mark Leidner and I was like “Mark Leidner has written a book” but then I realized it was Mark Baumer and I was like “give this man some money”

      Mark Baumer walked across America. Mark Baumer is a good person.

      also let us all acknowledge what a good deal 50 books and 50 pizzas for 3000 dollars is.
