"An atmospheric phenomenon has been discovered by citizen scientists and aurora photographers — and so little is known about it right now that they've named it Steve."

How cool is that?

"By monitoring ground sightings of the arc and matching it to Swarm's movements, he [Professor Donovan] was able to measure an instance of Steve."

This sign was hanging in a cafe window. Maybe one of my native German colleagues can tell me what this sign is REALLY trying to say? To me it says "as of now, a favorite assortment of ladies are available here!"

The good news is, Labyrinth (the board game) arrived. The bad news is, Zombicide is still taking up the gaming table. (And Labyrinth's got a really weird card size (50x87mm), which will make sleeving difficult or impossible. The closest thick-sleeve fit i can find is 56x87mm, but that's a really loose fit. There's a 51x89 thin sleeve... hmmm...)

Labyrinth rates in my top 10 all-time favourite movies, and is very possibly the movie i've watched the most times. When this movie first came out on VHS (remember those?), my baby brother Toby loved to watch it over and over, presumably because his name is called out so often in the movie. We rented it at least 10 times, and i've got it on DVD around here somewhere. My WLAN's SSID has always been "labyrinth", and almost all of my home computers were/are named after characters in the film.

The game:
