mirroir: Eighteenth-century eccentric Timothy... - I'm not a self help book;I'm just a fucked up kid.
mirroir:

Eighteenth-century eccentric Timothy Dexter of Newburyport, MA, self-described lord and philosopher, not only successfully sold mittens in the Caribbean and faked his own funeral, but also produced a literary curiosity entitled A Pickle for the Knowing Ones. After readers found its lack of punctuation somewhat vexing, subsequent editions included a page of punctuation so that they could “peper and solt it as they plese.”
