OK, I've expressed my feelings about Foster both here and on the EP forums, but I have to say: When she's not writing in that folktaley style that has always felt so false to me, she's really good. Creepy good, but good. Drabble was AWESOME, too, at least to a sick, sick pun fetishist like me (btw, ...

Wee-hah! I actually cheered out loud when I saw the author credit, and let me just say, the episode did not disappoint. The story was just pure fun, very in the DC spirit, and the reading was out-of-the-park good. I guess I don't really have as much to say about this episode; how many ways can one s...

Only if they defied the party's rules in the first place, and knew from the start that their delegation wouldn't be seated, but then they made a huge fuss--

Oh sorry, a little bitter.

To be actually serious, I think probably the most likely actual citizenship question in the forseeable future will be machine intelligences or human intelligences digitized or canned in such a way that their legal status is questionable, so I put in the first vote for "cyborgs."

In that case, when the guards knocked it out of the air, would that be... black cock down?

My favorite is Kasparov's facial expression as he first sees it... "Is that-- no, it can't possibly-- oh shit a flying dick."

Story was ehh , but not bad. I've been following that bit of drabblenews since it broke, and I have some thoughts about it. My worry is that, much more than even modern farming methods, this has really scary potential consequences for livestock diversity. As it is today, if all of our fancy civiliza...

They clearly didn't teach him well... I know when I was a child I was taught that if I got lost, I should a policeman where I lived and he would help me get home.

Caution: Low-Flying Genitalia!

Kasparov silenced by unidentified flying penis Also, youtube (but of course). Sure, the press has written it off as a prank, but that brave guard clearly recognized the first vanguard of the robotic crusade against human morals and decency.

Yes, it is definitely important that humans exercise humility concerning their massive horribility. But seriously, I think it is. Because at some point, "The human race is just so rotten" turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's a cop-out, and it's internalized racism (even if the "race" in ques...

Wow, that was about as subtle as a sack of hammers. And what more, the previous encounters clearly showed that the rest of the universe did have plenty of warlike tendancies and such, and yet somehow he sees them on Earth and acts like he's never seen war before? The SF trope of "aliens see earth, a...

Score one for the warm-blooded guys!

Yeah, I have to admit, I am totally on board with the "giant squid are rad" thing, but as a kid I was a total whale nut, so a part of me is always rooting for spermy. High speed small whales chasing giant squid in the sunless depths? That's good news.

Agh, I hate when they call something that flouresces under UV "glow in the dark." They are two different things, and frankly the latter would be much cooler, and should be the gold standard for researchers. Not for medical research or anything, just for a cat you wouldn't step on trying to get to th...

I love the line "Despite his grand stature, Chilli only grazes on grass during the day and enjoys the occasional swede as a treat." It seems to imply an assumption on the writer's behalf that a cow that big should eat human flesh or something.
