I think I saw this event covered on "Golem Cops" on the Automaton Channel. Is there really anything more pathetic than a neglected golem? I don't think so. Charming story. I particularly enjoyed the vocal affectations of the fawn in charge of investigating the incident. Truly a strange sto...

Re: thoughts

But that, in itself, would prevent her from being like the "original." Her road being pre-paved would mean her experience was nothing like that of the Angelina 1, which would make them turn out completely differently. I'm not sure how different that road would be. After all, as a child of...

That's even more ahead of the game than Ian Shelton discovering SN1987A while he was working on his graduate degree. (While he was listening to "The Wall" on his Walkman.)

I thought it was the state of Illinois, and it was discovered by an Illinoisa... Illinoisoi... umm, Tweedy? I think this clears it up. (Though I have know idea if it's Illinoisian, Illinoisite, Illinoisier...) Tombaugh was born in Streator[1], LaSalle County, Illinois. After his family moved to Bur...

I heard on the Skepticality podcast that in the state of New Mexico, Pluto has been legislated to remain a planet. Apparently Pluto was discovered by a New Mexican (New Mexicanian, New Mexacanite?, New Mexicaner?) So he's still in the big leagues there. The big question I have about Pluto is when wi...

Anyone heard what's up with Escapepod?

I know drabblecast and escapepod are a mutual admiration society. Does anyone know if Steve is ok? Long hiatus and now the web-site is unavailable for a couple days.

Worried about this pioneer in the pod-field.
