@Randal'Thor I would define a classic as a book that you can read every day for your entire life and still find new things.

("Classic" is whatever Coke says it is.)

Why is it 13 hours later, and I'm still the only one who voted up Rand's answer to my question? I think it's a very good answer to the question, explains exactly what I was missing, and backs it up with quotes.
Will probably accept, but will wait a little while first just in case anyone else posts an answer.
 
Speaking of that question...do I need to write a new meta question for this?
yesterday, by Shokhet
There is exactly one question with the development tag. I'm about to ask another that might also need that tag, but I wonder if we should just destroy it, and allow its questions to gather under the tag.

@BESW I have had this preordered since the first Kickstarter she did (which failed, there was a second one that worked). I can't wait to get my copy
 
 
5 hours later…
9:01 AM
... during an interval ...
Did this place just split out mathematics and Mithrandirmatics?
Where am I?
Wo wo wo lo lo lo.
@Hamlet , it was a passing comment but if this is the place to align to cosmos, I'd be happy.
 
@humn Since I don't do math very well, you can call it that ;P
 
I saw a chat room devoted to you. Had I started it!
 
9:16 AM
:P
 
Are you the last to know?

 Mith's Desk

@Mithrandir's office
??????
 
Yep, I created that room.
It's for me to chat with people in ;)
 
And I just pretended not to go there.
But didn't disguise my intrigue.
And won't disguise my cheer!
Okay? I didn't flag it.
(okay, I rarely flag anything, just an awkward way of shouting approval)
 
(hey)
 
Stranger!
 
9:27 AM
I believe we have never met.
But I am wrong.
 
When Mars attacks, Earth defends. Good thing I've been banished to the hemorrhoids and can avoid that other conflagration.
 
I wonder why aliens attack USA first in every movie.
 
I used to think that's where all the cuties were.
Was I wrong!
Cuties are everywhere!
(I'm one, for now)
 
That's very optimistic of you. :D
 
Slap you!
 
9:32 AM
dodges
 
Once I moved to the land of desirable sweets all the cuties made it here.
Before then, just promo.
Now that I'm not so cute, again, all promo.
 
I have never been cute. Nor will ever be. So promo everytime.
 
The only thing moso than promo is noso. Then neverwas.
Funny conversation with someone whom I'mmoso all the time
Really, I landed on this planet without a word in my pocket, without a fibre of strength to type a keystroke to be seen.
 
But I am still so-so in understanding what you moso.
 
I just just hope you don't become no-no while draining your mo-mo to me-me.
... for those out of the know-know, I endeavr to become manshu ...
 
9:41 AM
And that is why I need to upgrade myself regularly from constant humn-to-manshu-transformation attacks
 
IF you're not careful, scientists will have to come up with yet another way to foregress you!
Give them scientists a break!
 
If they are not gonna stop, then why should I.
 
(organ stops!)
 
which organ? Kidney?
 
9:46 AM
mmmmmmaaaaaaannnnnnnnsssssshhhhhhhuuuuuuu!
 
yyyyyyeeeeeeessssssssssssss?????
 
That piece is beautiful, Mithrandir. but truncated?
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmanshu!
 
It's cut off?
 
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (that's how I pronounce your name)
 
Let me try again, it was the first time.
(The wild outdoor cat loves it and is knocking at the window)
 
9:52 AM
aaahhh...new cats for regular neighbor check up?
 
This time it ended solid, and the cat is marking territory in approval.
Any speculation on how a piece of music relates to a novel?
Beyond beginning - middle - denoument?
 
It can relate if there is a movie based on novel having a good music.
For example "Fault in our Stars" - All of the Stars.
 
That came from Mars! Good one!
 
Even a simpleminded question can be braided otherwise.
 
9:56 AM
:p
 
That video plays on interruptions in ways to learn from.
 
When a line goes almost where you expect it, your mind fills it in with multiple endings.
(that was a late response)
(Here is the latest late response:)
What a science nerd smorgasbord! I've seen almost all of those clips!
 
The music is nice too :D
 
True! that was the first impresion.
 
10:06 AM
A cute video to look at:
 
But if we're not careful, Mithrandir, we'll get beat up in this neighbrhood, on technicalities.
And there go you (my future manshelf) daring fate.
 
I like science. That's how I found those - music + science = good, no? :)
 
Never cower! (coming from someone with terminal stage fright in person)
(Also coming from someone who will break a bone in defense of another who didn't cower.)
 
What a tiring afternoon!!
 
Afternoon on Mars.
On Earth it is 3:12am.
 
10:12 AM
half an hour later...the moment will come.
 
Hang on! Centrixxxal force is working against us.
 
also one minute later too.
 
In Tauremornalómë it is 1:13PM.
 
Right on schecdule!
... as in "Right on!"
 
10 minutes later in Tauremornalómë
 
10:15 AM
Trying to be funny: I was in bed with my cousin and asked if they'd done what it took to prevent what we both dreaded at the time.
Answer: Time is relative.
(second cousin, if anyone's keeping score)
Oboy were those lines deletable....
 
o_o
 
what if what Einstein meant by "Time is relative" is that "Time is different at different time zones" and not "Time passes differently for bodies at different velocities."
 
You said "bodies"... thank you for covering
 
Then we've all been deluded and must go into exile.
 
And then later he acted (when it was taken for the velocities) "...errrr....ok"
 
10:19 AM
@humn I'm hoping you don't mean what I think you mean...
 
Aren't we all exiled to ourselves.?
 
This second cousin was even more attractive than the first ones.
Don't know why they felt the same about me!
 
...
 
(Yes, I've been attracted to nonrelations even more... biology!)
It's only a matter of time, and I've served mine.
 
O_O
 
10:25 AM
I could write a naughty novel about the promises my friend's daughters gave.
It's only a matter of time.
 
That would be a national bestseller and a classic
 
^^what I just played on the piano
 
!?!?!?! ^ ?!?!?!
 
^^^what I am still trying to play on my keyboard
@Mithrandir nice melody.
 
10:31 AM
And Moonlight Sonata is almost architectural in how it builds.
 
Just like Bohemian Rhapsody.
 
!
 
I like the result Freddie gets in the end of the song (probably what I love most about the song)... "Nothing really matters, anyone can see. Nothing really matters, to me."
 
Great connection, manshu, now it's obvious all of a sudden.
 
what is obvious? o.O
 
10:35 AM
That you have an ear.
And that one of these orbits I will beshu.
 
Whenever I am sad, that is what I usually remind myself (in the voice same as Freddie's).
 
👍
 
(oh wow, any onlookers, nothing to see here, this kind of affection has been shared between manshu and humn for some time, as long as Earth and Mars near equilibrium.)
 
(we hope @Randal'Thor is aware of it to whom we still thank for unfreezing the room)
 
Right!
 
10:42 AM
time to go and have some fun.
 
Sally forth!
 
Cya on the other side of the moon (assuming that the Moon is between Mars and Earth)
 
(manshu has been the most consistent guiding light around here)
(not the only! just from the start and unwavered)
(reach for the insulin before all that sap causes hyperglycemia)
(that was not funny to everyone I know who deals with glycemic turbulence)
... bye for now from this medical editor ...

5:45 PM
I went to my university library today and lost half an hour after casually picking Dream Country.
And I discovered a shelf full of books about comics, e.g. how to draw comics and how comics came to be in general.
 
6:02 PM

6:16 PM
@Gallifreyan nice; those would be useful at Comics.SE.
 
If it ever takes off :D
I'm not so convinced about the need for Comics SE now.

Q: Meaning of President "Coin" in the Hunger Games books?

DukeZhouMe impression was the same Coin is meaningful as opposed to arbitrary. My thoughts on the meaning so far are: "Other side of the same coin" in that Coin represents the good guys, but is also an authoritarian This relates to the communal society of District 13, rendered necessary due to the c...

@Shokhet Thanks for doing my vote-begging for me :-P
@manshu @humn I'm aware of the room you two have, yes. I don't ever go over there because it seems kind of personal/private between you and I'd feel like an intruder if I did :-)
