Things might be looking up. Or maybe we’re actually upside down and we’re looking down. I have no idea.
Will things get to a point where we can… gasp… safely visit friends in family in small to medium groups? Will the quaran-times endure? Let’s find out with the magic 8 ball.
Me: “Magic 8 ball, when shall the plague at last break?”
Magic 8 ball: “Outlook hazy. Ask again later.”
Me: “Some help you are…”
In all seriousness, find fun and happiness where you can. Sooner or later, this season shall end.
|How To by Randall Munroe|
XKCD is one of my favorite web comics. Munroe’s prior book, What If, asked absurd questions such as what would happen if the oceans of Earth were transferred to Mars. This book takes the opposite track by asking sensible questions and providing absurd answers. One of my favorites is how to throw things. It eventually devolves into an exercise where quarterbacks are throwing blenders, and singers throwing microwave ovens. Silly stuff that’s absolutely worth a read.
Powers: The Best Ever by Brian Bendis and Michael Oeming
This graphic novel is most likely the conclusion of the Powers saga. I’ve been a fan of this comic book since the late 90’s. It’s a street level homicide detective story that takes place in an exceptionally violent and unsafe world of superheroes. One of the detectives, Christian Walker, used to have powers that granted him flight and strength. But those are gone now, and he is aging. An old enemy with an old grudge doesn’t care. He will make Walker pay. It’s a great send off for the characters of the series. Really well done. Check it out.
