I think both Goats and Freefall are on a roll right now. The current storylines have been unpredictable, inventive, and a heck of a lot of fun. (The latest Freefall story starts about here but the story arc in Goats started... I dunno, back in April 2005.

Speaking of science fiction, I now have the DVDs of Battlestar Galactica season 2. I also downloaded a bunch of them earlier but didn't watch more than a couple--- and saw a couple more on TV--- so it'll be my first time through. But too late to start watching season 3 "live".

"Bonus whoring" sites will tell you down to the cent the expected value (in $/hand or $/hour) for deposit and reload bonuses at online poker and casino sites. But here's the calculation for earning "Best Buy Bucks" via McDonald's Monopoly game. He figures he earned about $27/hour. But he neglected to calculate the expected value of the non-Best Buy prizes. And the hourly costs of peeling all the stupid prize pieces and fighting with the Best Buy manager to take $100-200 worth at once in denominations of $1 or $5. (I think we should come up with a name for this activity that references Lazlo from Real Genius.) Also, it's a much better deal in Vermont because you don't have to include return postage.
