Opening Gloomhaven is an event. It is not something to be started unless you have at least an hour, a large clean space, organizational skills, and boxes - many additional boxes.

Adventures in Hyrule: 10,000 A.C.G. Adventures in Hyrule: 10,000 A.C.G.

I saw in the distance a dragon fairly early in my travels, which seemed a peculiar occurrence, so I took a picture. The picture allowed me to detect when the dragon was nearby, and some days later I detected it in a different area.

I Was Thinking About Mitochondria I Was Thinking About Mitochondria

A god was swallowed by a whale. The whale was special and never needed to defecate, growing in proportion to what it ate. The god was too powerful to digest, and remained mad inside.

I grew up along with the home gaming era, but the important point in my childhood I want to address is not video game related. When I was young, I realized I could never read all the books I would want to read. This was one of those “picturing the universe” kind of moments when you realize your terrifying…
