Xan's Clock Theory of Movie Badness

🕛 An actual good movie!
🕒 Meh.
🕕 Just a garden variety bad movie. Not fun in any way.
🕘 Bad enough that it's corny and kinda fun?
🕐 So bad it's actually totally worth watching!
🕕 One and a half turns bad. Best avoided if at all possible.

I played exactly one pickup tabletop game at a game store, ever

a guy got mad at me for using NSEW directions on a map in a fantasy setting because “they’d have different names for it” so I scribbled some shit and handed him a map that had the directions:

Morth
South (pronounced “sooth”)
Squeast
Thwest

he gave me the world’s dirtiest look and 5 minutes later when I described something as being “about ten bmiles morth by morthsqueast of here” he left the table and walked out of the shop

I never saw him again

A bit weird to hear an ice cream truck tooling around as the sun sets before 5pm in November. Then again it was something like 80 degrees today, so 🤷‍♂️

Additional tangent, the þ character came from the Norse rune thurisaz, ᚦ. You can see it in Viking writing on runestones, like this one in Lingsberg, Sweden.

Seriously, though, it's encouraging to know that, decades after the ban on hunting went into effect, the humpback whale population has rebounded so successfully that most populations are no longer threatened by extinction. The world population is an order or magnitude greater than it was in the mid-1980s.

Too much Among Us. Misread "sustech" as "suspicious tech" rather than "sustainability..."

Astonishing that we live in a world where "going viral" is a commonly used English expression, but people seem surprised to learn that actual viruses do this.
