The Great & Powerful A to Z Theme Reveal

April is right around the corner, and that means it's almost time for A to Z to begin!  For those of you who have not signed up and may be interested in doing so, you can do that HERE.

Today, a few of my fellow A to Z bloggers are revealing their theme for this April's challenge. You can sign up HERE if you'd like to join in on the fun of the great reveal.  A theme isn't required for A to Z participation, of course, but having a theme can be helpful.  It makes it easier to plan your posts, and if a reader is interested in the theme you've selected, they'll keep coming back to your blog.

I'm a science fiction geek, so I knew I wanted to do a science fiction theme this year.  I decided that for each letter of the alphabet, I wanted to briefly outline a theme or concept frequently seen in science fiction, and to use that topic to formulate a few questions.  For example, for A I chose as my topic "Asimov and Artificial Intelligence."  The laws of robotics formulated by Asimov are famous for good reason, but creating an artificial intelligence comes along with plenty of issues that those laws alone cannot address.

I want to keep my posts fairly short, so while I won't be able to go into great depth within the body of each post, I hope the questions I raise might inspire some fruitful discussion in the comments.  I also hope readers will pose their own questions to inspire discussion.  The more people interact, the better it will be, so I hope you'll all join me on this blogging journey!

"Charlie Bit My Finger" Spoof Starring the Hemsworth Brothers

The classic video featuring two brothers and an injured finger was comedy gold.  Now, we have a spoof that shows just how far sibling rivalry can go, and how a small bite to a finger can have lifelong consequences.

Prepare to be amused.
