In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

I'm not even going to start on the world politics stage this week as I'd be here until March. If you want to discuss it, you go right ahead though...

The last human being to walk on the surface of the moon Gene Cernan, has passed away at the age of 82.

The Vine video sharing service has closed, so if you have up to six seconds of video to share with someone, you'll need to find a new outlet.

I've discovered a new podcast I'm thoroughly enjoying; the Verity podcast. "Six Smart Women discussing Doctor Who" and it does what it says in the title. What's enjoyable and different is that they are fans and they discuss it as fans. They discuss what they've ENJOYED about the series, the chaarcters, the plots and the effects. Yes, some of the failings and the tropes are discussed, but in a far more positive manner than I've found to be the norm on any messageboard or group.

“At some point in my teens, my dad walked in on me kissing a girl on the living room couch, and he called me downstairs for a ‘private discussion’ and seemed very upset, though I honestly had no idea why. He asked if we were ‘practicing,’ and I laughed and said something obnoxious like, ‘No, Dad, we’ve pretty much got it down,’ and I watched him just deflate. He had no idea what to say or do, and I think even realized that he wasn’t totally sure why he was mad. A few hours later he interrupted us again to yell at me about putting the cheese away wrong –not wrapping it up properly– and he was way more upset than one would need to be over refrigerator cheese etiquette, but eventually I learned how to wrap cheese up properly and he learned that it was just as uncomfortable for him when I kissed boys, so he might as well stay out of the whole thing." - Devin Grayson

"She knows that Bruce Wayne is a mask. She knows being this playboy character is a façade. Batman is The Bat, and he knows that Selina Kyle is a mask — the Cat is who she is. And they’re not ashamed of that. They’re not the people that they were born to be. They’re the people that they chose to be. They’re the only two people that see each other as they truly are. That’s the core of their romance. Your soulmate is the person that sees everything that everyone judges you on and loves you still." -- Tom King
