OH HECK NO!!
A chemical explosive that is beyond unstable.
Derek Lowe (of Things I Will Not Work With) had unkind things to say about C2N14

but the chemical pictured below is more like N20. Which means it is about six orders of magnitude more unstable.

The only thing worse would be N26 from the E. E. "Doc" Smith's space opera Spacehounds of IPC

The song might not be about printers, but this is for sure all about printers. There’s even a printer jam that somehow works perfectly with the flow of shapes and colors. Amazing. — via The Verge

A Wrinkle in Time Second Official US Trailer #SciFiSunday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/11/26/a-wrinkle-in-time-official-us-trailer-scifisunday/

Last weekend, Disney released the second A Wrinkle in Time Official US Trailer and we have to admit WE ARE SUPER EXCITED FOR THIS.

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

Them: "Hey I need more black and cyan toner for my printer."

Me in my head every time: "A little ditty, about black and cyaaaan."

And I will now have the line on repeat in my head for the rest of the afternoon.

There are times when I wonder if I'm raising my son in the best way.

Then he goes and does something like this and I don't worry as much.

Can't stop giggling!

A classic of the time, but I too wonder how it has aged.

I don't know what to think of the new Iron Dragon.

Of the scribblies it was always my favourite. Only played it 2 or 3 times though, and my memories of actual play are dim.

I always kind of wanted it, the only scribbly that had that effect on me.

I'm not sure I like the new box art - it seems kind of muddy. A gentleman over at boardgamegeek has helpfully posted side by side photographic comparisons of the two editions.

I've recently got glasses, not much correction though. There's concerns in the forums that the new edition is less kind to deteriorating eyesight. Which is a bit silly as it had a big fan base all of whom now may be suffering deterioration of vision.

Iron Dragon came out before Ticket to Ride and its myriade variants. Will my patience for the…

OK, this is wonderful!
