    The internet is an amazing thing noob555, why? Because lots of people, with lots of different skills, and lots of different levels of access are interconnected in to one community. I have given my fair share of material via my skill-set and accessibility.
    My father wrote a textbook, and sells it for around that much. He does not make a killing. He gets 4$ per book. The publishers make a killing off of these books. They give a few dollars per book to the author and then keep the rest.

    Thanks for correcting me, I meant to say publishers :X


    With that said, these authors do also make a killing (of these particular textbooks.)

    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?
