  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

The bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code has revealed that he hangs upside down to help him write.

Dan Brown told the Sunday Times about his unusual technique of seeking inspiration by strapping himself into a piece of gym equipment that can be turned upside down.

Mr Brown, 48, said when he struggles with writer's block, he suspends himself upside down in his New Hampshire home.

Can we just settle for hanging him upside down, so that we don't need to be bothered by any more of his absurd books?

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Can we hang him upside down and away from the typewriter and the TV camera please?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

So, I take it this isn't the spot for the Dan Brown Fan club....LOL



I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks he is over rated.

Dan Brown uses Teeter Hangups to clear his writers block. It's not just for back pain anymore. :w00t:

   It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve.
But to much skepticism can make you narrow minded to extraordinary possibilities.
