AMAZING NEWS: 4/10/22

Wow! ESFA awards & Russian banning, mono-bikes like RAH thought up, solar eclipse, Hugo Award firsts and more this week!

Light Speed Engine defies physics (EXACTLY!)

Blast from Television’s Past:  Family Feud (which I personally consider to be one nearly immeasurable step above Wheel of Fortune in terms of TV Game Shows for Idiots) apparently did a special that pitted TV show families against each other.  Batman vs Gilligan’s Island is sufficiently genre adjacent, but Lost in Space vs Hawaiin Eye takes the cake – edgeing out ALL others by allowing this:  “Name an evil you’ve never tried, but have considered trying.”  “Rape” was offered as an answer.  Watch it, or don’t here. Gilligan’s Island vs Batman too.  (Mini Editorial:  Things sure have changed, haven’t they?  Now if you want to talk about rape on national television, you have to be a member of the Republican House Minority.)
