(Nuff Sed.....)

Those are groupings of words (out of context) from a book written in 1919 by N.D Sickels, and this thing has got to be the craziest writing style I've ever seen. Full of hyperbole, excessive use of CAPS LOCK (I don't know how you even do caps lock on a typewriter), quotations applied "to" random words, Capitalization Assigned at Whim, and out-of-nowhere rhyming. I don't know what this guy is talking about half the time in this book, but I do know that I want to rob the hell out of his writing style.

Sickels was a smart guy, who's brain was filled with so many facts and opinions that I think he just kind of vomitted his whole brain into a book. Not all the things he says are coherent, but quite a bit of what he says is pretty interesting. He's like a whackier version of Buckminster Fuller, I guess.

I don't know why, but I have a feeling this guy's voice sounded similar to Julius Sumner Miller's (no reason in particular...just a hunch):

Sickel's full book "The Universal Panacea" is available at the Hathi-Trust Digital Library, and I highly recommend it: http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.b273994
