This reminded me of a TEDx Talk that John Green gave on the subject of cartography and community (and life), but starts with mentioning paper towns; the practice of map makers inserting fake places into their maps as a form of copyright trap.  It's also the title of one of his novels.  What struck me, and what John mentions, is that we often want fiction to become reality, and sometimes it does.  Agloe was one such paper town in the middle of nowhere New York, yet became an actual place because people believed it and went there.  Did the War of Worlds broadcast become real because people believed it?  Yes.  The broadcast caused (an admittedly small amount of) panic in the listeners which was very real.  There were no martians invading New York and New Jersey that night but that didn't make the experience any less real.

You cheated!  You had 120bpm music playing in the background!

In any case, it's still impressive that you kept track of time while still talking to the camera.

It's about time MLB got video review, IMHO.  Although the resulting lack of coach vs. ump fights is disappointing.

We're going further from Kerbin than we've been before in this episode of #KSP

It's my last #KSP episode of the year, and we keep things close to home this time around.

We continue to rack up the #KSP science on the surface of Jool's moons.

We've made it to Jool, but we're more interested in the moons in this episode of #KSP!
