So I finally got up the courage to watch Torchwood: Children of Earth. I've been putting it off for literally years, knowing that it's the tv equivalent of a death fic, and even though I knew what was going to happen I still didn't want to actually watch. I can say honestly that episodes 4 and 5 both made me cry, but at the same time I'm glad I have seen it now.
And I was introduced to QI today - brilliant! I'm only half way through season one; have an awful lot of catching-up to do.
Found this on another comm tonight - if ever you wanted to put things into perspective, this will do it for you. The Scale of the Universe.
