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.

I don't think I'll post them, but in my drivers license photo I look like a drug addict. In my passport photo I look like a phycho killer. There's also a photo that I used in various online applications where I look like an evil mastermind ... much like you do in that photo.
This must mean that I'm actually a nice guy

Every now and then the Thai press reports the police have stopped yet another convoy of trucks heading for Vietnam with a cargo of live canines.
In China some restaurants hang skinned dog carcasses outside to dry in the sun. The strange thing is that in some cities dog meat is exorbitantly priced. My guess is the people in those areas consider it a delicacy. I do not know why, since the meat is pretty band. Unlike crocodile, which is delicious.
let me say that I consider myself lucky, because I can choose what to eat
Which animals are considered food, which pets and which unclean, is culturally determined. Hindus do not eat cow, Jews and Muslims do not eat pig, North Americans and Europeans do not eat dog and cat, whale is (surprise) eaten by coastal populations. That does not mean dog, pig and/or cow is food for the impoverished. Except for creatures whose flesh is poisonous, there are no animals that should or should not be eaten. That "choice" is made by one's culture.
I tried snake, dog, but they are not our regular food. Some people here think they are very good supplement for their body in winter cold season. I swear I will not try dog meat any more because I am not comfortable eating them. But for snake, why not? People eat frog here, but I dislike frog meat and never touched them.
