Still Not Watching Football

Last year I quit watching NFL football.  After about 30 years rooting for the NY Giants, and the Baltimore Colts before that, I had had enough.  First, the Ray Rice mess threw up in our faces the fact that football players at all levels consider women to…

A Maze in Corning

We visited Corning yesterday, which is quite a bit dolled-up from when I last stopped there. Well, I admit: that was in a year that began with a ‘1’. This may be very silly but I was struck by how cool it was to find a maze to solve on the midpoint of the…

Well, I'm not complaining as it takes me 15 minutes to get to the Con.  Plus, I know where the good beer is so no loss for me

+Amanda Manning I haven't heard of that one, so I can't say... But regardless, "SKY KNIGHT" is absolutely worth the read!

My son remarks, as he walks away from a half eaten bowl of pasta, "I am done but not full."  He knows that I made cookies earlier.

I respond, "You are not done if you want dessert."

He walks back and tries to get a laugh by doing a perfect fake face plant into his bowl saying, "It was gravity."  (At that moment we were watching SNL on Hulu.  So, of course he was trying to distract us by getting a chuckle.  It worked.)  He followed the joke by saying an aside of, "It was the Spaghetti Face-Time Continuum." 

He wins.  Game over.  At six, his ingenuity of punning on science, pasta, and pratfalls just made my night.

Has anyone played Artemis?  I heard it was lots of fun, but not ready to drop money on it without real reviews.

It is a lot of fun but you need the right people to play it with.

Not X

Let X be one of the following: homophobic, racist, sexist, transphobic, or xenophobic.  I submit for consideration the following hypothesis: Someone who is actually not X will never have to say, “I am not X”. Introducing a statement with “I am not X”…

We all agree, past events can affect the present. And present events affect the future. But few would credibly argue that future events can affect the past.

There's nothing surprising about this result (and similar experiments were done a while ago). It's nice to see it validated though.

Personally I'm fond of the Transactional Model of Quantum Mechanics because it does not require anything as strange as defining exactly what an observation is. Either that or the "Zero Worlds" interpretation in which everything is Quantum and there is no collapse.

Have someone read bedtime stories so that parents can snuggle up to their little ones and listen along.

My favorite kid's book to curl up with my kid is Fortunately the Milk by Gaiman.  I plan on listening to The Graveyard Book audiobook version with him on our next road trip to CO.  Last 30 hour drive it was The Once and Future King.  As it was, we only got 50% through.  YouTube has typically shaky versions of people reading picture books.(for young kids check out What Do You Do With An Idea?)  I do prefer the actual reading, and having my kid read to me when I get tired.   It would be awesome if G&S returned Written By a Kid!

Saturday morning at the arcade. Good times.
 
Saturday morning arcade with the kids. It is rare to find decent prizes. Hazel is rocking the fishing game while Haydon and Theo are thrill yelling in the background somewhere to some emersive pirate game. Good times

I was lucky enough to go to the first Doctor Who convention in Cardiff and they had the weeping angels statues there.  They are just as terrifying in real life.
