Growing #pueblochile in Long Island. Having to experiment with water and light, but they’re starting to do OK.

I launched the #7wideRpg challenge, mostly because I'm still pondering what my own answer would be.

I’m proud to live on a world where world-champion athletes donate their time to almost pointless scientific inquiry.


 
I'm releasing the sources of The Gold Canals of Irid's Vault, my One Page Dungeon entry:

In my family, we’re not “car people” by any stretch of the imagination, but holy crap, #hyperdrive is great TV.

I wonder if executive producer Charlize Theron got to drive the courses.

Translation of the Fed’s actions yesterday: “the US economy is doing pretty good, but the yield curve inverted and the President is an imbecile, so we’re spending some anti-recession ammunition early”.

Those don't look like friendly letters to me. They look like the sort of letters that a teacher might use in commenting on an essay, like "Don't use run on sentences." or "Don't use colons to separate list items."



 
My eight-year-old son has been devouring this book, a stat-free, digest-sized guide to the standard D&D critters.

The first comic book I ever bought with my own money was #xmen 136, the penultimate issue of the Dark Phoenix Saga. I was nine years old. The years that followed found me tracking down the rest of it (trivial now, a pain back then). Ever since, I've been waiting for someone to make a movie that does it some kind of justice.

This isn't it. But, it's better than I expected and probably as good as we're ever going to get from Hollywood. I have… thoughts… but not now. Spoilers allowed in the comments (one spoiler here: there is no post-credits scene).

Watching the original #thundercats with my wife and son, at my wife’s request. Forgot how catchy that damn theme song is. #HearTheRoar
Also… mutants wait for the old man to disintegrate, take Sword of Omens sitting right out in the open while the Thundercats are in hibernation, series over.

When he was governor of Colorado, John #Hickenlooper presided over a program that provided public heath clinics in the state with IUDs, who then gave them to women who wanted them for free or at reduced cost. After the launch of that program, Colorado's teen birth rate fell by 54% and its teen abortion rate fell by 64%. Maddow had him on to talk about it, and other stuff.
