Is It Wednesday?

From Web to Print, John Klima at looks at two webcomics making the jump.

This MetaFilter entry takes me back. I played a LOT of those old games, and Defender of the Crown was a favorite (once I figured out how to joust).

Three-Armed Romance. Be sure to read the author's take.

The Doctor Who theme played on Tesla Coils. In other Doctor Who news, is Zimbabwe's Mugabe holding missing Doctor Who episodes? Um. Sure. And more on Doctor Who: Morgan reports that Doctor Who wins international Visual Effects Award. And I'm with M, the show was constantly innovating, which is why many of the effects look dated now. They did a lot with very little. Speaking of little, Dalek found in pond.

The Nine Weirdest Public Service Videos Ever Made. And they are BIZARRE.

Filesharing witnesses wife gets flowers from filesharers. The whole Pirate Bay trial has been a mockery, as made clear by the accused remotely fixing server problems during the trial.

Why We Immunize. Even if you don't read the rest, READ THIS. And then, if you have time, read this comprehensive overview of the entire antivaccination movement that pretty much demolishes their arguments from top to bottom. As I've said before, I have no problem with people choosing to not vaccinate their children. However, if they are unvaccinated, they should be kept apart from vaccinated children so they cannot damage herd immunity. If they catch polio or measles or whatever, the unvaccinated should die alone, not risk children who were vaccinated but for whom the vaccines didn't work.

More LOLCat Theology.

Pug for the in-laws.
