Geeky Nerd Stuff


It’s the stuff of science fiction or, nightmares, depending on how you look at it. But when the Israeli lunar lander, dubbed Beresheet, crashed on the moon in April, it left behind thousands of microscopic and, may I say, indestructible tardigrades, commonly known as water bears. Water bears—the toughest animal on Earth—offer a very benign …

Day 3 at the ComicCon wasn’t so much a full day of panels and guest talks, as half a day. While we had the opportunity to dash from one venue to another and catch two panels—the other being with Christopher Lambert, he of Highlander fame—we decided to have a late morning, and went just to …

Saturday at the ComicCo, saw us cram in three guest panels in what was a very long day. The first was the absolutely lovely Lana Parrilla—who played the Evil Queen, as well as Mayor Regina Mills, and, by season seven, Roni, in the TV series, Once Upon A Time. From Lana we had a small …

Yes, you read right, I’m going to bore you with photos from my long weekend at the Montreal ComicCon. Turn away now if you’re not into SciFi, CosPlay, or ComicCons in general, as I’m about to gush … because, look at these costumes! We arrived in Montreal on Friday about mid-afternoon, which was perfect timing for …

Or, the saga of the expanding batteries in iWatches! I bought an iWatch way back in 2016 because, you know, I so wanted to be Dick Tracy … well, maybe not the man himself as, after all, he was a comic-book character. But the idea that I could talk to my watch and have it …

I’m also not big on buying online, as I have trust issues. Especially with certain companies like Etsy, having …

We finally booked our tickets for the Montreal ComicCon—for the weekend of July 5 to 7. And I can’t wait, as the line up of guests for this year is amazing: William Shatner — Star Trek Lana Parrilla — Once Upon A Time Eliza Taylor — The 100 Tom Welling — Smallville / Lucifer Michael …

They make it sounds astounding, a new fangled invention that will revolutionize our blogging experience, like, wow, they just re-invented the wheel … and made it SQUARE! So that now, no one can use—let alone WANTS to use—Gutenberg. It’s chunky, clunky, clumsy and unintuitive. And after years of everyone using what is now laughingly referred …

Or, all the futuristic stuff I’ve always dreamed of owning! And who hasn’t dreamed of owning items we’ve seen in a movie, or on TV. I remember my friend, Linda, and I desperately wanting to join the Enterprise so we could each have a phaser, not realising till much later on, that this meant we …

I grew up reading comics long before I picked up a book. It was how my parents first introduced us to reading. Not with the more regular Ladybird books. No. My parents found we responded better, and, of course, found that we also stayed quieter longer when reading a stack of comics. So for them, …
