Tonight on GeekNights, we consider car shares, bike shares, scooter shares, and the like. In the news, we saw some great rooftop fireworks yesterday, there are few options to save the Thai soccer team, cave diving is incredibly dangerous, and your weird Internet crap might be the evolution of a neo-Dada movement.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk a bit about souvenirs. In other news, I hope you voted in the primaries if you could. There are two power seeking coalitions in the US, so if you can vote, you have to join one of them. Uranus Opens And Closes Every Day To Let Out Planet’s Solar Wind.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about the great time we had biking the Harlem Valley Rail Ride 2017 upstate. Camping on a baseball field and then biking 72 miles with chill people. In the news, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is finally getting republished with the original Stephen Gammell art, an exploration of the world of bespoke pornography, you can easily be sued over fonts, and kids today don't know over-the-air television exists.
If you're reading this, you should probably join the GeekNights Forum: it's actually pretty great! Even better, it's the new iteration, but the MASSIVE and TERRIFYING archive of the previous forum is archived for posterity with its hundreds of thousands of posts and tens of thousands of threads.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk in an ultra generic sense about amusement parks! In the news, the Alamo in San Antonio is a terrible tourist trap, Westworld is pretty good, and Ayumi Hamasaki's hearing takes a tragic turn for the worse.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concerns of the bathroom. I'm not even joking. In the news, Made is coming (finally) before Big Bang joins the army, United is going to charge coach flyers for using the overhead bin, and we'll be live at PAX South on Friday!
Luggage is the topic of GeekNights tonight, since we apparently already did an episode on hats back in 2012. In the news, there was a great disturbance in the Net, as if millions of shitheads cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. (Reddit has banned several egregious subreddits). Lancaster shows us the same behavior that makes these people so terrible. Apparently GeekNights has a subreddit. Pizza hut did a good thing. Come to ConnectiCon. See panels and workshops! See screenings!
Tonight on GeekNights, after Rym's return from the midwest, we consider Robert's Rules of Order. If you need to halt organizational drama or impress grognards, this is your go-to resource. We also hit up on some Hearts, an Edward Hopper exhibit, former slave states reminding us why we should have let them go, and SCOTUS ruling on a variety of things. Rym also announces that the next GeekNights Book Club book will be Stasiland.
