Dear @chrishemsworth Thor...apologies...when I tried to pick up the hammer after it fell to Earth in that first movie I kinda torqued the handle where it goes into the head, fractured it just a little bit...didn't think it would be a problem...should've mentioned it...my bad....JMichael Straczynski added,
We even get a bit of JMS trying to pick up that hammer in the video that Hemsworth posted, RIP Mjolnir: https://twitter.com/chrishemsworth/s...81340717809664

As ever with this sort of Tweet, please take discussion to Off Topic.

JMS tweeted in the early hours:

JMS jokey tweet about his new intalled Iphone X:
Quote:
Installed/activated my Iphone X today. Turned on face recognition. Siri keeps responding with "Stay where you are, keep your hands where the camera can see them, a SWAT team will be arriving shortly." Is anybody else getting this?
Some nice retweets:

Quote:
Mine just says "Apple is Mother, Apple is Father."
Quote:
No, but it's insisting my password is "peekaboo."
Quote:
No, but mine does keep asking me "What do you want?" and I'm a bit afraid to answer...

Mine keeps asking me "who are you"

Asked who would win, the Shadows or the Daleks, JMS replied:

Lemme think...million year old advanced race armed with a fleet of almost impervious shadow vessels versus really large traffic cones armed with toilet plungers...I'm thinking it's not much of a contest.

Versus inconsistent "really large traffic cones armed with toilet plungers." I am by no mean a Who expert, but I am forcing my way through the branch of the series that started in 2005. One of my MANY complaints about the series is the inconsistency of the Daleks. I was first introduced to them at the start of this series as being nearly indestructible "large traffic cones armed with toilet plungers." As the show has progressed they became weaker and weaker. I know that from time to time they have explained improved weaponry being used against the Daleks, but it has always seemed like flimsy reasoning after the indestructibility they established in the early part of this run. I know some will argue with me that the inconsistency has been explained, but that doesn't mean I like seeing that the writers wrote themselves into a corner and have been backing out of it ever since.

JMS got a period

JMS yesterday did this tweet:

Quote:
Thanks to Twitter's new rules I can finally put a period and space after the J, which has been bugging me ever since I signed onto Twitter. These are the small joys that make up my life.

I almost tweeted back "Life's simple pleasures really ARE the best" and/or "The best things in life are free" but sanity prevailed.

Sanity? since when?

Where's the real Jan and what have you done with her.

But the second best things aren't free: a hot cup of coffee and a sweet cake.

Asked whether Centauri women have 'six' also, JMS responded:

Yes. Located three each on either side of their back, arranged vertically. They have teeth. Beyond that, I've never looked that closely and what the hell is wrong with you does your mom know you're online again after what happened last time I mean seriously....

Went to take out some trash, noticed parts of the bottom of the pool had turned black. Couldn't figure it out. Then realized: it's ash from the nearby fires. One of the current evacuation zones is about three miles from my house. Fingers crossed. Horrible tragedies all around.

What's about? Project? Any idea?

Don't know. I'm thinking it could be one of three things. Either
- he's writing something and i slooking for a 'model' to keep in mind while writing or
- it could be for one of the projects he's been working on for a while - Rising Stars and Midnight Nation or
- it could be for something not announced yet.

It's frightening. Hope he continues to check in.
