Chapter 2 of RaM is forthcoming. In the meantime I thought I'd share this.

my brother: (reading the newspaper) That's why I don't read comic books.
me: What? (I think I know what this is about)
brother: Marvel says Thor is now a woman.
me: And that's why you don't read comics? Sexist.
brother: Thor's supposed to be a prince of Asgard. Not a princess.
me: Well, if I may outnerd you for a moment, in the Elder Scrolls, all of the Daedric princes are called Daedric princes, even the female ones.
brother: Look, they have a quiz. "What's the name of Thor's mighty hammer? A. Mjolnir, B."
me: Mjolnir
brother: Yeah, duh, right? Option D is "Steve".
me: I think it's great they're having a female superhero who isn't named like.... "She-hulk"... "Superwoman"... "Batgirl". They're getting tons of press for this, this is like the fourth time I've heard about it in the past two days.

notes:
Even though he "doesn't read comic books", he is pretty into comic book TV shows and movies.
I must admit that I have only a passing familiarity with the Asgardians of Marvel, and the reason I knew "Mjolnir" is from Douglas Adams' magnificent work The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul, which is best experienced in the form of the audiobook voiced by Simon Jones. I've listened to those cassettes until they practically wore out. The last time I listened was probably some 5-6 years ago, and I can still vividly recall the exact intonation of phrases such as "Just to fling, fling myself at it. Fling.", "Clean white linen sheets", and "Wot a fag, mate?" And I can't stop myself, every time I see a Volvo, from thinking "the size of a small Volvo".... I wonder if they'll ever try to adapt the adventures of Dirk Gently to the big screen.
