  1. I've always been a huge fan of this long running web comic even if I don't get all the most scienc-y jokes. It's amazing what stick figures can do to communicate tone and ideas and emotion with the right context. Today I want to start off the discussion by posting two recent strips that really tickled me. #2341: (https://xkcd.com/2341/) and #2360 (https://xkcd.com/2360/) To me these are quintessential XKCD. They use a quasi textbook graphic presentation with the star chart and the comp

  3. Used to play cricket a lot, but stopped once my eyes got bad. I tried my had at hurling when I visited Ireland.

  6. I'm usually a stickler for consistent worldbuilding where even if things are surreal, I understand why it's surreal. But this movie's logic issues didn't bother me as much as it seemed to bother others with it's lack of clear cause and effect. The performances, action and sense of connection to the characters powers you through that. It helps that almost all the character stuff is in the first half and the worldbuilding cracks don't become apparent til the last 1/4, so by then you're invested. And I think it also helped that the action across the movie was surpr
  7. I'm seeing a big block of grey for the hollabox with the text, 'Invalid Host Header'.
