  1. No trophies per se, but I did come out of Academic Decathlon with a fistful of gold medals. Probably a car. We keep it in the cupboard so as to not entice the cats.
  2. There are so many things I love about living in the future. I think I'll have to go with "learning". From googling things on my phone, watching YouTube videos, listening to podcasts, to reading tumblr broccoliposts, learning is so much more fun the new-fangled ways.
  3. I've binged a lot of shows but never had one I could not put down the way I could not put down "The Good Place (Season 2)". That show is so forking good. I recently finished Person of Interest, so in addition to the Good Place, I've binged Lost in Space, Disenchantment, and The Hollow. The Hollow was interesting but probably not sequel material. The other two I'm kind of on the fence about. I enjoyed them but am getting pretty sick of shows where all the characters (or in LiS's case, all the adults) are just awful, terrible human beings.
  4. Don't Stop Believin' Code. IDLE is the most complex IDE I'm willing to use. Usually I'll just use nano. My town uses a Civil War-era ballot box to collect ballots. It goes ka-chunk-ding when pull the lever.
  5. Saw "To all the boys I've loved before". Fantastic and fresh take on teen romance. Particularly pleased that Netflix committed to keeping the main character Asian American.
  6. Based on personal experience of what my wife complains about, Imma go with "leaving the butter on the counter".
  7. Taylor had been a guilty pleasure of mine until I realized that I liked basically all of her songs and wondered why I ever thought I might not.
  8. First thing: I'd want to see Earth from Space. First question: Which of my 21st Century Social Mores will get me killed? Dogs. The things they've seen...
  9. Have you played Russian Railroads? It's clearly a Skyscraper building game with the wrong theming.
  10. The target for my security tag at work is at waist level, so several times a day I do a little jig to hit the target with my wallet while it's still in my pocket. Beat me to it.
  11. Many quality programs that I've loved have been mentioned already, so I'll just bring up a few that my life actually revolved around: Transformers (I still have a scar from when my brother and I were fighting over who got to sit in the good spot to watch it) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (this one aired on Sunday mornings and thus saved me from a lifetime of being a recovering Christian) Babylon 5 (raced home from MIT's outreach program to watch this one) Star Trek: Voyager (dropped out of Boy Scouts for this one) I haven't actually watched TMNT since then, but I've rewatched the others and still have much love for them. I have TF and B5 on DVD.
  12. Indeed, didn't it originally refer to Historical Miniature Wargamers who looked down on SF/F Wargamers?
  13. My brain is interpreting that as a blast of dinosaurs shooting up out of a geyser.
  14. Anything involving being surrounded by large crowds of people. I went to Boston Pride for the first time in June and had not one but two panic attacks. I'm probably never going to a parade again. I imagine I'd have the exact same job I do, only instead of turning down TSA, my CEO would be fending off Supervillains who want to steal our emotion detection software.
  15. I have reduced my ED3 wants list from 4 to 2, including acquiring the last original ED3 book. I just have two reprints left, one of which is hilariously selling for $300 on eBay. I can't imagine anyone who would spend $300 on Earthdawn books right now, let alone $300 on a reprint from an earlier edition, especially since ED4 is publishing new material.
  16. I mean, it's tough to beat "The Most Unwanted Song".
  17. I found myself surprisingly hungry at work this morning, so I grabbed one of the single-serving boxes of Rice Krispies out of the cabinet and needed a rusty spoon to cut open the perforations in the cardboard to turn it into a disposabowl. And then I discovered the plastic bag inside didn't have any perforations at all and I had to tear it open with my fingers like some kind of beast. At least I had leftover milk for my tea...
  18. Rice Krispies. Honorable mentions: Kix, Lucky Charms, and the Powerpuff Girls Cereal.
  19. I appreciate the recommended beer pairings.
  20. Agreed. My wife and I really wanted Rose to be a better fashion designer and a worse thief to help throw complications at everyone else.
  21. Does not compute. Our male cat is alternately Gandalf, Flufflernutter, Little Prince, and Fluffy McStabinator. None of these are silly.
  22. It is regarded by many as a Black Comedy, since its primary entertainment value is in watching the Royalty of England betray and muder each other over and over. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4a_r9H5NSs
