txt: itsame-cass asked: "Dear Mr Gaiman, I love reading, I always loved it, and now I am studying Creative Writing and English Literature at university hoping some day to fulfil my dream of becoming a writer. However, one of my professors told me that reading for the purpose of escaping reality, as I often do, is wrong and if my objective is to become a fantasy writer I should rethink about it. What do you think? Am I loving reading books for the wrong reason?"
As CS Lewis once said, quoting Tolkien, the only people who inveigh against Escape are jailers.
If you knew someone in a bad place, wouldn’t you want to help them to escape? Even if it was just for a few days? And to gift them with knowledge and armour that they can take back to their daily lives, that may help them?
I would.
I do.

Why does the third of the three brothers, who shares his food with the old woman in the wood, go on to become king of the country? Why does James Bond manage to disarm the nuclear bomb a few seconds before it goes off rather than, as it were, a few seconds afterwards? Because a universe where that did not happen would be a dark and hostile place. Let there be goblin hordes, let there be terrible environmental threats, let there be giant mutated slugs if you really must, but let there also be hope. It may be a grim, thin hope, an Arthurian sword at sunset, but let us know that we do not live in vain.
— Terry Pratchett, “Let There Be Dragons” (A Slip of the Keyboard)

Every computer needs a “cleaning keyboard” mode where the keys would be inactive while you wipe them down

why not just clean it while the computer is shut down?

while the computer is what now

When someone disagrees with you online and demands you prove your point to their satisfaction by writing a complete and logically sound defense including citations, you can save a lot of time by not doing that.

Bro, I’ve known you for twelve seconds and enjoyed none of them, I’m not taking homework assignments from you.

This got a lot of responses from people pointing out that evidence is a key part of intellectual inquiry, discourse, and debate.  That being able to support your beliefs is a key critical thinking skill.  Which is 100% true.

Except that you don’t actually have to participate in intellectual discourse any time some fucko on the Internet tells you to.

There’s a vast difference between “this is an important thing to be able to do,” and “this is a thing that you must be continuously available to perform in public for any stranger who asks.”
