I know we're not still talking Whedon, but I wanted to drive-by post how much I like Amy Acker. She was one of the few characters that made me finish the first season of Dollhouse. And I absolutely loved her portrayal of Root in Person of Interest.

Hank Green is the narrator of "Journey to the Microcosmos," and he and the people involved made a Kickstarter project to provide decent microscopes for people who may be interested. The Kickstarter campaign is done (I bought the book), and the videos are now Hank describing what stage of the process the microscopes are in, and showing off what they've made. I enjoyed this:


This reminds me of myself like 14 years ago, finding the microscope my grandmother gave to my father, and playing around with it, sticking all sorts of stuff under it. Now I know approximately what my friends and coworkers were experiencing while talking with me.

I was looking up "Shockheaded Peter" this afternoon (the fate of Rebecca in Edward Gorey's "Gashlycrumb Tinies" reminded me of one of the stories in "Shockheaded Peter"), and discovered this WWII British parody: http://parridigit.istitutoparri.eu/p...WWELHITLER.pdf

I believe a Pharmacy is what you would call a Chemist. I hope that helps.

Nope ... the amount of lolwut remains the same.

I knew that anyway, as a denizen of the interwebs.

What? You want that I should hold onto it until it's somehow germane to the topic at hand?

How long you think that'd be? I'm old. I could drop dead any minute.

You do it. You sit on that and wait around for relevance.
