helmet for 1 year old - The 100-Year-Old
The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
The international publishing sensation--over
two million copies sold
A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if
Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it’s not too
late to start over...
After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up
in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that
he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in
the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control
over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window
in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey,
involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant
criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a
death by elephant).
It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else,
but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: Not only has he witnessed some of
the most important events of the twentieth century, but he has actually played a
key role in them. Starting out in munitions as a boy, he somehow finds himself
involved in many of the key explosions of the twentieth century and travels the
world, sharing meals and more with everyone from Stalin, Churchill, and Truman
to Mao, Franco, and de Gaulle. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man

"[A] silly and wonderful novel. [The scenes] will just keep
readers amused almost non-stop, and that's a feat few writers achieve. A great

--Kirkus Reviews, Starred
"[A] laugh-out-loud debut . . .
Historical figures like Mao's third wife, Vice President Truman, and Stalin
appear, to great comic effect. Other characters--most notably Albert Einstein's
hapless half-brother--are cleverly spun into the raucous yarn, and all help
drive this gentle lampoon of procedurals and thrillers."

"Scandi-crime's signature darkness is here
dispelled by Allan Karlsson, the eponymous centenarian, who with unlikely
sprightliness hops out of the window of his old people's home one afternoon . .
. Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny . . . Like Allan, the plot is pleasingly
nimble and the book's endearing charm offers a happy alternative to the more
familiar Nordic noir."

c?г???cles• 10 • 30 • 2010 I've never read a book on parenting in my
life. I don't yack to many other parents sharing stories and tips because guy's
don't do that kind of shit. I've mostly just winged this whole fucking
experiment for the past 8 years. I'd say anybody can really do this parent
thing. Really! The most important things you'll need is a strong willingness to
be a parent and a WHOLE LOT of common sense. Without a heavy dose of those 2
things, you probably shouldn't of gotten into this whole parent predicament in
the first place. I know I have the willingness. And this is usually accompanied
by love. You might be surprised how many parents I see on a daily basis who you
can just tell don't value being a parent. I think they treat it more like a job
or a chore. But in reality this is a fucking privilege from god. Life's ultimate
privilege. And I think my logical way of doing things works well for parenting.
I mean in theory, it shouldn't be hard to deal with someone who is clearly very
simple and innocent. You are older, wiser, and more complex. You've already been
through it. I try not to judge other parents in this category, especially if the
willingness is there. We all have our own methods. That said , every once and a
while something will pop up in the babe parenting journey that leaves me
clueless. For example: how in the fuck do you teach this kid how to ride a bike?
Do I just take her to an open lot and let her fall and scar herself up till she
gets it. Like total Concentration Camp style? Or take baby steps when she feels
like it? And what do I even do when we're practicing. Clap her on like a fucking
zoo monkey or try to hold her? Her bike currently has 1 training wheel. Not
because I thought taking one off was the obvious next step to getting two off.
Actually it's because the 1 fell off and I lost the screw. Now with her 1
training wheel, I'm not sure if I should leave it on or take it off. The last
thing I want is a 12 year old who can't ride a bike. And she's approaching that
age that most kids she is surrounded by can ride one. And her training
wheels wheel is at the point that she shouldn't have them it. So
... what are your experiences riding a bike? Do you know how? If not, are you
embarrassed by this fact? Do you remember your parents teaching you how to ride
one? And fellow parents who have accomplished this feat, help? Thanks,
