My inner child's head just exploded. That's a 3ft (1m) diameter roll of bubble wrap.

Did anyone else notice that the TARDIS in "siege mode" looks exactly like a miniature Pandorica?

It's been in my Netflix and Amazon prime queues for over a year at this point. I keep putting it off because I have a feeling my wife will want to watch it too once I start gushing about how good it is, and I don't want to have to watch it twice, the way I did with Breaking Bad.

Wait...did I just actually type that? Screw it, I'll start without her.

Space Pens vs. Pencils

Via +I fucking love science over on another platform.

Things are very rarely as simple as they seem... it's easy to mock when you don't know the context.

This is simultaneously the most terrible and most awesome thing I've seen on the internet since reaction videos to the Red Wedding. I think I want a bow and some "ancient manuscripts" for Valentine's Day.

This video is nearly six minutes long. I understand that asking you, dear reader, to watch a six-minute video of some dude doing archery tricks in his garage and the woods by his house is a tall order, but you need to do this. You need to watch Lars Andersen, master of ancient and long-forgotten bow skills, do his damn thing.

Anyone out there familiar enough with git and svn to help me manage an export from the former into the latter? It's for a project at work, and I'm having some difficulty with it that I shouldn't be having. It's making me feel downright stupid, but as a non-developer I've somehow been tasked with doing it for the development team.

I didn't mean that literally. I had a lot of conversations with people that thought that John Hurt would be playing the doctor before he was the doctor, or maybe the "last" doctor or something, and I was maintaining that he was going to be the doctor between McGann and Eccleston.

THIS!

Oh my Jesus! THIS. If Congress can't vote on a budget, they shouldn't be getting paid for the period of time that the government shuts down. Not even retroactively. Fuckers are supposed to be public servants

Introduction
If you're here because I circled you, read this: http://goo.gl/cSWZ6

Seriously, I don't know why ~2,600 of you have me in circles. I know I've been in some shared circles and that's where most of you came from. Few of you probably even vaguely recognize my name. I don't mind you being there, or anything, it just dumbfounds me. 

Hopefully I will be neither too boring nor too annoying, but I make no promises.

You have been warned.
