Morning Roundup: Straight Talk from Yoda

Speaking Correct Order of Words Yoda Is from MechaStewart on Vimeo.

Beyond being clever, the above video featuring Yoda speaking words in pretty much the “correct” order made us wonder the following: do a bunch of young, hip Jedi start saying things out of order to make themselves feel cooler than other students?

  2. Meditating on the lack of diversity in Game of Thrones.
  3. Finding speculative fiction’s place in academia.
