Bill Nye the Science Guy. It's a fact that needs to be listed here.

Sam Vimes: I do.
Bureaucrat: Well then who watches you?
Vimes: I do that too.

I do, next week, once the crowds have died down and the inevitable in-theater nerd rage has played itself out.

No way I'm going to deal with that shit.

When I mentioned it coming out today, my brother was glad to currently be in a smaller town. Otherwise, he wouldn't be going so close to the release.

Me, probably tomorrow, but not before I finish reading the damn book again. Only Alan Moore could write a comic where a single issue takes me half an hour to read.

Hmmm...

Vimes needs a Vimes Fact Page.

When I reread Watchmen last fall, it took me a good 8 hours. It really is dense as hell, especially when you're trying not to gloss over details.

But I can think of another comics writer that did it to me. The Sandman trade "A Doll's House," I believe (the one that's entirely set in one woman's fantasy dreamscape) also took me quite a while to read through.

So it's just usually Alan Moore.
