* FAQ for Iain M. Banks' Culture books. Has some interesting stuff on Use of Weapons and Excession in the spoiler section. Also links to "The Culture is the answer": In his science fiction novels, British author Iain M. Banks projects a future human society that seems to embody all the essential virtues of Objectivist social theory, while at the same time suggesting how two widespread and major shortcomings of current Objectivist thought may be corrected. I haven't read that yet, I'm just posting the url because Culture? Objectivism? Tres bizarre.

If you've read the Full Metal Alchemist manga, or seen the Brotherhood anime, you might be amused by my calculations regarding philosopher's stone volume. If you haven't, spoilers!
