ANyone get the XKCD "What If?" book?  I did and it's so awesome.  I haven't had a ton of time to read it, but there are things about the book itself that are awesome without having to read it yet.
Ordered. Thanks.

I got it yesterday at dinner time and read the whole thing that night, even though I had a meeting that night.  It was amazing.

All of the ones on the blog, from what I saw, seemed to be the same.

My favorite new one was the neutron-star bullet.

Got it also, since I'm close enough to one of the book tours that I can (hopefully) get it signed.

I haven't read much of it, but the neutron-star bullet one is pretty good.

Actually, knowing that Andy Dwyer is actually the Star-Lord named Peter Quill made P&R all the more funny.  And one of the reasons that I started watching it in the first place.

For me it was the other way around.

I din't catch much of the first season. I think I got in somewhere during the second season. But now, I love the show. Someday I'll probably watch the first season and the episodes from the second one that I've missed.

You know, it could be that the world of Parks and Rec is a parallel universe to the one in Guardians of the Galaxy where Peter Quill never got picked up by the Ravagers.  So really, Andy Dwyer is the Star-Lord, but he just doesn't know because he never realized his destiny because he never got abducted.  I think it works.  But I need to watch more P&R to really tell.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

Speaking of doctors ....

I just passed my dissertation defense! Henceforth I will require you all to refer to me as Dr. Jonts.

And no, I won't take a look at that rash, but it's probably terminal.

It's psychosomatic.  You'll need a lobotomy.  I'll get a saw.

It's a common side effect of forum trolling. I recommend cutting out sarcastic remarks for at least a week.

Dominionology, I think. Or at least, that's where I spent most of my research efforts in the past 5 years.

Ha.  It relates to the show The Leftovers.  October 14 was the day of The Departure.

experiments with e have shown that I'm one of the 10% most blacklisted people. for some reason. which is bad. but it explaines some kicks from people who i know don't dislike me. at least that's something.
