Hi, I'm Thomas. I write and host The Episodic Table Of Elements, a podcast that looks at the fascinating stories behind every element on the periodic table, at episodictable.com

I also love tabletop games, especially D&D and MtG. I'm looking forward to learning what Mastodon is all about!

I've been an armchair observer of Atlantic hurricane activity for about ten years now and I have never seen a configuration like this. How is there room for all those in the ocean? How is Disturbance 2 forming so far north? It probably won't be strong, but will it hit the UK?

I'd just like to get on the record as saying milestone XP is lazy and awarding numerical XP for succeeding at goals is both more fun and makes for a more interesting game

management positions are a jobs program for middle aged white people

Well, I made it past 9am in NYC before I remembered that today is 9/11

The kitchen scene from Jurassic Park, except the kids have access to a 45-gallon drum of corn oil

The episode on Calcium is finally here! Element 20 beautifully blurs the line we imagine exists between flesh and stone. episodictable.com/calcium/

Does anyone else really bristle whenever they see someone use the term "fake news"? It seems like a major concession to fascists even to acknowledge that it's a valid term.

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.
