I was not aware until now that Carl Sagan wrote Space: 1889.
Actually, he’s telling us “how (not) to science”, as original poster bouncingdodecahedrons put it, and doing a damn fine job as always.

Beautiful photos of a Bobtail Squid. These guys are more similar to cuttlefish than true squid, but without a cuttlebone. I’m not sure which species this is. They have a symbiotic relationship with bioluminscent bacteria, which don’t just make them beautiful but also hide them from predators; in return for sustenance, they react to light shone on the squid from above by producing a matching amount of light, making them difficult to spot from below. I’m not sure if they also have chromatophores like cuttlefish and some other cephalopods. Oh, and just to make them even cuter: they’re tiny. These ones are only about five centimetres long.
These photos were taken by wildlife photographer Todd Bretl, and originally published online by (American) ABC News. (Word of warning: his web site’s front page is mostly pictures of sharks, so don’t look if you’re phobic!)

On behalf of all performers, thank you. Your job is weird in that the better you are at it, the less anyone notices you’re there. As performers, we constantly struggle with that as a concept. We often link attention with importance, yet without your silent presence, we’d be all…
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
Does the BBC only have one script?

Are you joking me.
Come on guys, get with the program. He’s been reusing dialogue and jokes in everything he’s written since Press Gang! Give someone else the Doctor Who tiller, please Beeb?
Confused about numbering the Doctors after the introduction of the War Doctor? Don’t be! Just learn to count the Steven Moffat way! Here’s how.
(Spoiler for The Night of the Doctor, but not The Day of the Doctor.)
Now I want to suggest an exhibition of satirical board games for Pop Up Playground…
