Well, here we are again. Sorry to all two people who read this blog. But wait, I have excuses! I went to Alaska about a week after school let out, and right afterwards I had a family reunion a couple hundred miles away. I've been kind of busy, in other words. But the good news… Continue reading The Remnant
Welcome back to Recommendations of the Week! This week, I recommend The Odd 1's Out. The Odd 1's Out is a comic created by James Nolastname, and...you know what? There's already a really great explanation on YouTube of it, so go check that out: The History of TheOdd1sOut Sorry for the lax description, but I have… Continue reading RW #7 – TheOdd1sOut
Welcome to Tributes! Today is the birthday of... Me! No, only joking. Although it is my birthday, today is also the birthday of an inimitable Briton: Florence Nightingale. During the Crimean War, Florence Nightingale formed the bridge from medieval practices of medicine to the modern, informed system used by nurses and doctors today. Known as the… Continue reading Tribute #1 – Florence Nightingale
Here's an upload schedule for my blog! (Yes, I'll never keep to it. Who cares? Monday: Recommendations (things that I like and think you'll enjoy) Wednesday: Miscellaneous (stuff that doesn't fit in the other categories) Friday: Tributes (honouring a figure from the past whose birthday falls on that day)
Palestine. Northern Cyprus. Western Sahara. Which of these are countries? After some thought, I've come up with what I believe to be an acceptable definition for 'country'. It follows an Asimov-esque system, meaning that the third definition can be overridden by the other two, and the second can be overridden by the first. A country… Continue reading What Is A Country?
Calling all...Aesthusini? Aesthuso? I'm embarking on a new venture (maybe kinda). I might possibly be creating a YouTube channel, and I need help. A lot of help. If you are in any way a nerd, you know about CrashCourse. Basically, I'm doing something like that. My plans are to have series such as Welcome to ______ (a… Continue reading A New Venture
I'm back! My sincerest apologies for being absent so long. Exams, IOWA testing, and Spring Break didn't help at all. Anyway, here's a gift to make it up to you: all the countries of the world (to the tune of the William Tell Overture). The U.K., Germany, Andorra, San Marino and Poland, Portugal, Denmark, Austria,… Continue reading The Countries of the World…In Song!
I'd like to introduce you to someone. This story starts way back in 2012, five years ago. Barack Obama was running for reelection, London took the prize of the first city to hold the Olympics thrice, and a large number of people proclaimed that the world was about to end (spoiler alert: it didn't). In… Continue reading The Conundrum: Part II
Welcome back to Recommendations of the Week! This week, I recommend the night sky. Wait, what? Yeah, I do have a backlog of stuff to recommend, but the sky tonight is simply beautiful! There's a lunar eclipse, a 'snow moon' (that's a thing now?), and a comet - the New Year's comet. It's started recently… Continue reading RW #6 – The Sky
Nearly a year ago, I shared a project idea: Graham Quest. The idea was basically a mockery of common action-adventure games: one man's quest to get his graham crackers back. I'm still working on it, and only recently have I actually got some real work done. I hope (hope being the operative word) to get it completed by… Continue reading Graham Quest (Update)
