    How do you draw an X?

    I'm a 7. Just checked: When I do it left-handed, I'm a 3.

    Cold Weather Survival - Vehicle

    James Kim went for help in this same scenario and died. His family, who stayed with the car, lived. This was a few years ago. The family got onto a BLM logging access road and got stuck in the snow while traveling through Oregon. Story. Here's an analysis of the incident from Doug Ritter of Equipped.org. Here's a forum thread from the same site, with discussion of the incident. (Note: Ritter's focus is on aviation survival. The linked site isn't a doomsday prepper site, and focuses on realistic situations. IOW, it's a good source of info, and the forums are well-policed.) I think the main focus for surviving being stuck in a vehicle in the winter should be on warmth and hydration. With some forethought, the situation may suck but you should be able to stay put and get through it fine. Moving under these conditions, with no land navigation aids (or skill, I suspect in the Kim case) is suicidal and shouldn't be attempted unless there's a medical emergency or other extremely pressing need. (Like your car being broken down right under a potential landslide/avalanche.)

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    I get the same tonal whiplash every time I see Captain Marvel in any modern DC comic. He just doesn't fit. So, I tend to think of him as his own thing.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    It definitely looks like it's going for the Big vibe, but I like Zachary Levi, so I'm in. At least he's a good choice to pull it off. Will probably be a Red Box rather than a theater trip for us, though.
  5. Yeah, the "they" cabal is pretty powerful.
  6. They do say brevity is the soul of wit.
  7. I know how news works. You know how jokes work?
  8. People Who Swear May Be Happier, Healthier And More Honest So, Hermit, why this campaign to make us Sadder, Unhealthy and Dishonest? Seems pretty nefarious if you ask me.
  9. I don't know about you, but I"m really looking forward to Untitled Movie.
  10. Looks interesting. I couldn't get the twitter link to work (disappears when I click on it), so found it on YouTube:

    In other news...

    My wife has a very specific form of this condition.

    Well, I hate to be that guy, but that's not how you spell "annoyance."

    When should the Christmas Tree Come Down

    You need to cut a hole in your floor so it can take root, and keep it watered year round. After a few years, you may also need to cut a hole in your ceiling. Always start with a live tree. These aren't potatoes, after all.

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    I don't think any PDK work has had a faithful translation to the screen. So, I didn't go in expecting one from Man in the High Castle. It's definitely not a faithful adaptation. It should really be billed as "inspired by."

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    Finished Season 3 of The Man in the High Castle the other day. The two year gap between seasons left us wondering who many of the side characters were, and there were a couple extraneous side plots (they were both OK, but could have done with just one or the other, unless they become important in a later season), but after it got rolling it was pretty decent. Did some world building this season in explaining how something worked, then making it have a significant impact on the plot. Hopefully, they won't have as long of a wait for Season 4.
