Unlicensed Nerd Rant

An observation of the internet tracking the odd, whimsical, and plain geeky. Roll a Bluff check.

We don’t have a #quidditch team #lu #lindenwood

I did some digging, and we do have quidditch!
It’s an intramural sport (source), but I’m not sure which semester it happens in. Here's the link to the LU intramural sports webpage.

To be fair, it’s only on paper. They’ve met a few times on Halloween. If I wasn’t caught up in six other groups as it was, I’d kickstart it myself!

Oh, that’s good to know! Do you know who’s been in charge of it in the past? What other groups are you involved in? :)

Hey, sorry! Was caught up in running HVZ last week. I’m president of LU Steampunk, do media stuff for the Gender Studies Club and help with a couple of other things around campus. If you’re a resident, you probably know me by my leather hat and accompanying goggles. From what I know, the people who were involved with the Quidditch events graduated some time ago, while the staff who helped them moved on as well. Intramural sports aren’t something I’m really up for breaking into, timewise- while several friends have expressed interest, somebody would have to organize it, and student-body-wide communication on campus is lackluster as it is. Doesn’t change that shiny “Masters of Death” banner up in Evans, though I like to think that our nerf dart on the skylight in front of that panel is at least as cool.
You can always pull me out around campus if you’d like to talk shop. That water-bottle refill station is by the bathrooms outside of Spellmann Caf, BTW- it’s the result of a recent bill from the Sustainability Alliance that went through LSGA, I believe.

A small panel of Subnormality #196 (The Fifth Anniversary Comic)
- by Winston RowntreeThanks to intranaut for reminding me I haven’t checked back on this comic in a while.(It’s a strong contender for best comic on the internet.) 

Just a friendly reminder that Subnormality exists, and you should be reading it.

gUYS VOYAGER 1 IS CONFIRMED OUT OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM WE’VE BROKEN OUT OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM THIS IS REALLY COOL

OH MY GOSH REALLY THIS IS SO COOL AUGH HUMANITY

Plus, there’s this incredibly scary but really fucking cool clip of what interstellar space sounds like

WHY AREN’T MORE PEOPLE EXCITED ABOUT THIS????

Mainly because of this.

It’s really cool, yeah, but it’s also a buzzline that the media jumps on every so often.
