Books Like The Martian for my 14 year old

I have a son who has struggled to find books that he likes. Over the holiday break he picked up The Martian by Andy Weir and devoured it! What other books have the same feel? [more inside]

How can I train myself out of saying "like" all the time?

I say "like" too much. When I'm speaking publicly or meeting a new person, I don't, but when someone is in my comfort zone I say "like" constantly. I even realized today that I even say "like" in my thoughts. As in, it is so deeply ingrained into my thought processes that I THINK in like. How can I strip "likes" from my speech? [more inside]

How can I easily bulk "unlike" pages on Facebook?

Is there an app or script that will help bulk delete all the pages I've liked on Facebook over the years? The process of doing this from my settings is time consuming (deliberately). Even if there was a way to unlike EVERYTHING then start from scratch, this would be useful.

Like, I like Like

Does anyone remember a recent article by (I think) a linguist whose main point was defending the colloquial use of "like", as a way to explicate internal monologue in a way that wasn't really done before? For obvious reasons this is very hard to google for. I don't remember if I saw it here on Metafilter or some other source.

Chicken salad, on rye, untoasted...and a cup of tea.

Lately, I've been fantasizing about pulling a George Costanza---realizing that if every instinct I've had have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right. In my case, I want to just abandon my "ethics," stop thinking I'm special, and going out there, and trying to make some serious money. Has anyone just pulled a George Costanza and taken the 'opposite' approach to life? For example, have you walked into a job interview and just said exactly what's on their mind, like George does when he meets Steinbrenner, or confessed that you're unemployed, balding and living with your parents when an attractive person hits on you? If people don't have personal experience of doing these things, I'd love to read accounts of others doing them. Thanks!

What snake-themed song did I hear?

On the radio I heard an old-sounding (1960s?), female-fronted pop-rock song that had the lyrics "you tremble and you shake / when he moves like a snake". What song is it?

Where can i see list of non-fb pages i've 'liked'?

I've been clicking the 'like' button all over the interwebs -on pages and articles and slideshows and whatnot. Now i want to view a list of all things i've "liked", so that i can revisit them. (To a certain extent, i've been liking things as a way of bookmarking them.) Problem: on facebook, i can see a list of the pages within facebook that i've liked, and i can see recent non-fb-pages that i've liked in my profile's recent activity. So: where can a see a list of all the non-fb pages i've liked? [more inside]
