Silliness, useful things, well duh

Silliness: Things I am not allowed to do at Hogwarts, with links to addenda. (Old, but still good.)

Useful: ASL Browser -- see assorted words demonstrated in Quicktime video rather than try to puzzle out from a static image. (I think I'm probably going to wind up using signed words along with my spoken conversations when I know the signs (which I mostly don't) just because language is fun.)

Duh: Heterosexual men plan wedding for tax reasons -- a few years ago, I would have happily married my not-actually-related-to-me roommate Sis for tax and custody reasons, and while I'm not heterosexual, she is. So this does not surprise me. The marriage of convenience is an old tradition and a traditional plot device. (Hello, slashers! Now you, too, can use this for real-world-based fiction!)
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
