Similarities between #DoctorWho and Bugs Bunny:
-- shows up by accident while trying to get somewhere else
-- finds himself in the middle of a plotline swiped from some well-known genre cliche
-- refuses to take the villains seriously at all
-- subverts the narrative logic of the genre by substituting his own, much sillier logic
-- makes the villain's plan backfire like some sort of trickster god
-- skeddaddles before he can face any consequences

There’s a whole genre of Reddit posts where teens ask how to get vaccinated without their parents consenting.

I just restarted my Chromebook for the third time today. I thought this was the kind of thing that wasn't supposed to happen with Chromebooks.

I got delightfully few Christmas presents this year, and here's my favorite.

@ntnsndr, do you have a preferred online vendor for your (latest) book?

Had a good meeting with @StephR about the MAN, the MAW, and the MAP, with a passing mention of the HUMAN. It's a lot to get my head around, but it shows a lot of promise.
