This is a place to bring up just about any topic you want to discuss.

The only thing off limits is politics. See below for why. Everything else is good, as long as it doesn't violate the SI Terms of Use.

If you want to get completely non-linear and nonsensical, so much the better. I'm hoping we can have fun here.

I do ask that people be civil with one another. This means that if you disagree with something, you will respond by saying what you disagreed with, but refrain from insulting the person who said it.

Basically, I don't care what people talk about, but this isn't the place for a brawl.

People who can't act like grownups will be banned, either temporarily or permanently, depending on my mood and possibly quite arbitrarily. I'm fair, but I'm human.

The restriction on political topics has more to do with trying to keep this thread interesting than any kind of squeamishness. There are a lot of places on SI for people to rant about politics. Most of those places are nasty and boring. This will not be one of them.
