Swimming

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider swimming, especially in swimming pools. Pool toys, diving boards, swimming lessons, the works. In the news, the COVID meat shortage was fake, AleXa wins the "American Song Contest", and Christopher Walken will play the Emperor in Dune 2. Also convention drama.

Handwriting

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of handwriting. In the news, idiots are in trouble with the FAA, another unrelated idiot is in trouble with the FAA (weirdly echoing an episode of Bob's Burgers), and the Stanley Cup Playoffs are imminent.

James Bond

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider James Bond (in cinema). In the news, Rym is back from London, and New York has a lot of good options for connecting LGA to the rest of the city. Your regularly scheduled GeekNights should resume from this point forward!

Saint Patrick's Day

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Saint Patrick's Day (the holiday). We have a fraught history with it, frankly. In the news, Scott is trying out Obsidian, Daylight Saving Time is likely going to be permanent in the US (for the second time) much to the surprise of some of the senators who made it happen, and New York governor Hochul continues to be a mixed bag.

Greeting Cards

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Greeting Cards and other cards of this ilk. In the news, the Doomsday Clock is 100 seconds to midnight, the handful of people "buying" NFTs are not that invested in them, and the Democrats in the US Senate forced a vote to protect voting rights that failed due to the undemocratic and broken nature of American Democracy.

Sports Commentating

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the science and the art of Sports Commentating. In the news, legendary sports commentator John Madden has died, The New York Times is buying The Athletic, a sports commentator made a terrible mistake that is somehow distantly related to this ridiculous nonsense, and United States President Joe Biden calls out the fascist coup attempt by Donald Trump and the American Republican Party directly.

The Alien Franchise

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the Alien franchise. While clearly the first two movies are the best the franchise will likely ever have to offer, much like Spiderman it is so iconic to be nearly universally recognized. In the news, Youtube is removing dislike counts, the economy isn't in great shape (in ways you might not even realize), and the Playdate is delayed.
