Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

LASIK machine was down. Still wearing glasses. I've waited 48 years. I supposes I can wait another week. What prompted it after so long? I've been wanting to do it for several years, but every year I decided to spend the money and have it done, life got in the way. This year, I decided that I was t...

Re: Episode 538 - To Splat, or Not pt 1

The only time I ever had splat material that was wildly overpowered was articles from Dragon magazine waaaaaay long ago. Every other time someone has pulled out something that they wanted to use because they thought it was way overpowered (because they wanted to be better than everyone) they were ei...

Re: Doctor Who: Series 12 ** Spoilers **

Does it seem obvious to anyone else that it's all going to be undone next year? There were too many things left undone and unaccounted for in the finale - especially the portion of the Matrix that was redacted. Also, the famous bit from "The Brain of Morbius" where the doctor lied about ha...

Re: Web comic panels

https://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/grandpa_jason_and_grandpa_chad.png The AARP puts the average age of a first-time grandparent close to 50, and the CDC has some data. But I don't have first-parent age distributions for specific names, or generational first-child age correlations, so the dotted line is j...
