    Michael Hopcroft got a reaction from DShomshak in Babylon 5: What's your favorite episode?   
    "Passing Through Gethsemane" has little to do with the overall storyarc, but I found its story of a man trying to repent for sins he doesn't even remember, and of a punishment that seems merciful but is in reality anything but, quite compelling. {Plus the idea of a holy order bent on studying the religious impulse in all its myriad forms across the galaxy has a considerable appeal as story fodder.

    Pairing Pinot Noir and Cheetos is a waste of good Cheetos.
     
    Say, that restauarnt that made those outrageously creative (if dubiously edible) sandwiches on a monthly basis -- is it a COVID casualty?

    The problem with some PDFs on a traditional phone is that enlarging and swooping around the odcument are, to many, inconvenient. A lot of people have noprobl;ems. I don't have problems, but I do most of my reading on a 10" tablet.
     
    There are Phone PDFs (optimized for those deices) for games like the two polar opposites of ZWEIHANDER and Pugmire. The thing is it's not enough to scan or put together a PDF of your final layout. The phone file must be optimized for that purpose. I own a couple, but have yet to read one.

    I know the lack of covers makes this problematic, but it there any way to set up Robot Warriors for a Print-on-Demand run? I'm juggling some projects and would like to do a few mecha for the Hall of Champions and would like a reference copy. I do own the PDF now, in case that is an issue, but I don't believe RW is licensed for copy-for-individual-use.
     
    At the same time, I want to thank Chris Goodwin for opening the Conversion Guide.

    The planet is trying to sort out what sort of climate it needs at the new temperatures. Since it has no mental capacity whatsoever, it's taking it a while.

    A 50% ieffectiveness rate from a vaccine is not acceptable, even if it takes into account the substantial number of people who will refuse it. The stakes are just too high. It was five years between the first public announcement of the polio vaccine (in 1950) and it becoming available to the general public. A good vaccine is likely to take more time to develop than some would expect.
     
    People who have been vaccinated against a disease have a mental expectation that they will be bulletproof. If the vaccine doesn't work half the time, the other half of recipients are in big trouble...

    Fox Sports. Instantly, Troy Aikman also works for Fox Sports and is significantly higher on the totem pole than Skip is. For one thing, Skip is almost never actually sent to games and I have no record he played any sports.

    Owning a cat. Though it won't be nearly as much fun for the cat unless you give her antigrav technology too. Then sit lie back and watch the fun!
