Exhalation by Ted Chiang. Some of those stories are haunting me.

I know what you mean about The Raven Tower too. In my end-of-year write-up, I said “This has stayed with me.”

Speaking for myself, just online so URIs don’t break—no obligation to keep a link in a site’s navigation, for example.

That’s a great piece!

I always loved this picture of Vera Rubin and John Glenn …until I heard about Glenn’s feelings on the Mercury 13.

See, this is what makes it such a good question!

Batman’s moral code is his weakness; Boba Fett just shoots Batman…

But!

Boba Fett is a bouty hunter. His weakness is money. And what’s Batman’s (Bruce Wayne’s) superpower? Money!

  1. Who would win in a fight—Boba Fett or Batman?
  2. What’s that smell?
  3. Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?
  4. What am I thinking right now?
  5. What’s the bloodiest you’ve ever been?

You are too, too kind.

Thank you, my friend.

You can update your service worker script to cache the new assets. You can also clean out the old ones.

There’s an activate event that fires when the service worker starts up—that’s a good time to do this.

But if you can figure out how to mark up air quotes, please let me know. Because that would be “awesome.”

On my site I’ve used <q class="air"> to mark up airquotes.

(Also: what a lovely example you chose for figure. 🙂)
