  1. I can't wait for this book to come out (May 4th, 2021) Here are some impressive endorsements, indeed. “Reading Project Hail Mary is like going on a field trip to outer space with the best science teacher you’ve ever had—and your class assignment is to save the world. This is one of the most original, compelling, and fun voyages I’ve ever taken.”—Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One“Brilliantly funny and enjoyable . . . one of the most plausible science fiction books I’ve ever read.”—Tim Peake, ESA astronaut and internationally bestselling author of Limitless“Thrilling doesn’t even begin to describe Project Hail Mary, which is undisputedly the best book I’ve read in a very, very long time. Chock-full of the mind-blowing science in death-defying situations that made Weir a star with The Martian, this tour de force even transcends that work as it becomes a profoundly moving celebration of friendship and sacrifice. I cheered, I laughed (a lot), I cried, and when the twist arrived and the book revealed its true target, my jaw hit the floor. Mark my words:Project Hail Mary is destined to become a classic.”—Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Recursion and Dark Matter“Two worlds in peril, a competent (but flawed and human) man, a competent alien, unending scientific puzzles to unravel, with humanity itself at risk, this one has everything fans of old school SF (like me) love. If you like a lot of science in your science fiction, Andy Weir is the writer for you.”—George R. R. Martin, New York Times bestselling author of A Game of Thrones “I loved The Martian, but I actually find Project Hail Mary to be Mr. Weir’s finest work to date. It’s somehow both exciting, yet also personal. I’m constantly amazed by how well Mr. Weir continues to write wonderfully accessible science fiction without compromising either the science or the fiction.”—Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Stormlight Archive series
  2. Nice final pass; dumb as a box of rocks.

  9. I prefer my soups to any chili. Vegetable or Chicken Curry soup.
  10. Post songs that come to mind (let's try not to Google right away) that mention the States/Schools of the SEC. If the title doesn't say it, quote the lyrics that do. RunToState mentioned the song Deacon Blue, which included "They call Alabama the Crimson Tide"... Obviously, "Sweet Home Alabama" comes to mind. My contribution was "Moonlight, Feels Right", which includes "They say you came to Baltimore from Old Miss, a class of 7 4 gold ring." What other songs come to mind from the SEC?
  11. Of course you would; Ralphie says you look like a tick about to burst.
