Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't keep us all in suspense, when are you going to eat that noxious pizza?
Don't know yet. And I might not. I will probably get a pack of my friends together to cheer me on/say things that will make me toss my cookies. (Maybe I'll even video feed so you guys can watch too! ) I'll probably have to do it when I won't be at work the next day.

If the pizza challenge is just about a hot pepper spice then you can use plain yogurt to protect your mouth and throat from a blistering burn. However, if the "spices" are something more noxious then you may wish to pass on this challenge. In fact I would argue that the pizza restaurant issuing the challenge has to publish a list of ingredients just like fast food chains do nowadays because the ingredients in this challenge may pose an immediate health risk to customers who take the challenge.
Its entirely possible to give someone with an undiagnosed heart condition a heart attack after eating this food.
