Yeah... I think this would be considered too easy for the Sunday Quiz right here on io9 - it's doable without pen-and-paper even (just about), but if you make notes as you work through it, it's proper easy. » 4/15/15 2:07am 4/15/15 2:07am

If you're Old Testament, doesn't that make you more or less Jewish? I never got how a Christian could be Old Testament, the whole point of Christ was to change that shit, so sticking to any of it in light of Jesus's work seems... dumb. » 4/11/15 4:42pm 4/11/15 4:42pm

Yeah, Swedish only got rid of this during the 1970's, as part of a conscious effort. Before then, you'd call everyone who you weren't on intimate terms with "ni" (you plural), or a title ("sir", "doctor", "teacher" etc), or even just "he" or "she" (yeah, as in "could she pour me another cup of coffee?" to your… » 3/09/15 2:18am 3/09/15 2:18am

Well, I think it's both. In the Justine Sacco-case, it was painfully obvious that she meant it as a slightly off-colour comment on white privilege and ignorance; she wasn't a clueless white person, she was commenting on being a clueless white person. HOWEVER - she did it in a way that is only obvious to other liberal… » 2/14/15 4:32am 2/14/15 4:32am

I'm not sure about the best (Rollerball?), but the absolute worst is without a doubt Quidditch. It is so obviously made up by someone who doesn't enjoy sports. It could be an ok game without the Snitch, or if the snitch was nerfed, but the way it's set up now, it is basically a game between two Seekers, with lots of… » 1/22/15 7:57am 1/22/15 7:57am
