When it was too hot to do anything else: Top 10 by Alan Moore et al (who are the police when everyone’s a superhero? very addictive – thanks Matt), Harry Potter 4,5 (5 better than 4 for sure), bits of Robot (Alan Turing used to live near my parents ;) and Disciplined Minds; Motherless Brooklyn (very funny scenes of Tourettes from the sufferer’s point of view) and the Best Democracy Money can Buy by Greg Palast (get riled really quickly. Really quickly…and stay riled). Also the Flanders Panel and Web Site Story (on a delayed flight. The former has some neat stuff about reverse chess. I think I’d be better at reverse chess than ordinary chess, since I always felt sorry for people I beat. Not that there were very many).
