Exurb1a

Misery was

Misery was

(PG-13: Language) Exurb1a rushes through evolution and genetics to share a thought: if mental illnesses can be genetically edited out of us, should we do it? It’s hard to say without knowing the consequences, but a world where misery is extinct certainly sounds wonderful.

The Mystery at the Bottom of Physics

The Mystery at the Bottom of Physics

(PG-13: Language) “The universe is as mad as a bucket of coked-up ferrets.” Exurb1a looks at universal constants and laws of physics which provide us with context for everything, and help us make sense out of the seemingly random nature of things.

Unlimited Rice Pudding

Unlimited Rice Pudding

(PG-13: Language) Even though he believes time travel will kill anyone who attempts it, exurb1a created a guide on how you can use it to rule over humanity. Here’s what you should pack, what you should do, and the two ways that you can go about it.

We’re the Last Humans Left

We’re the Last Humans Left

(PG-13: Language) There were human species before us, each of which is now extinct. Evolution led to us homo sapiens, who have managed to hang on largely because of our ability to communicate. exurb1a provides his cynical take on the state of the human race.

The Bridge Tongues

The Bridge Tongues

(PG-13: Language) “Because it’s better to be right than to be nice.” Exurb1a sarcastically imagines a not so improbable dystopia where humans can speak only to those with whom they agree, isolated from everyone else with a differing opinion or thought.

You (Probably) Don’t Exist

You (Probably) Don’t Exist

(PG-13: Language) Exurb1a points out that most of the things we do, think and feel – from crucial activities like breathing, to walking and even our interests and fears – are subconscious or done automatically. But he argues that being self-aware is enough of a victory.

More Years of the Scientific Method

More Years of the Scientific Method

(PG-13: Language) “Technology’s just nature we taught to do cool tricks.” Exurb1a reminds us that the technology we use everyday isn’t unfathomable – by breaking down some of the gadgets we use everyday, such as watches, airplanes and computers.

Hymn for Goldilocks

Hymn for Goldilocks

(PG-13: Language) Exurb1a goes on another Exurb1an soliloquy about existence, and how our planet is in that rare sweet spot. And we who are lucky, who have never known anything else, have a song we like to sing.

A Dictionary for Your Twenties

A Dictionary for Your Twenties

(PG-13: Language) The Awesomer’s writing team has long since said farewell to their twenties, but we definitely could have used some of the words from exurb1a’s reference guide, which includes terms which could come in handy to describe the trauma of that youthful decade.

Why Good Stories Are Good

Why Good Stories Are Good

(PG-13: Language) “Because this is our condition – balancing between animals and gods.” Exurb1a presents his theory about the key to making a good story (particularly a movie). It’s a mix of feelings, pictures, and ideas.

Bear and Goose at the End of Everything

Bear and Goose at the End of Everything

(PG-13: Language) “Sometimes, only sometimes. All the time would be too much. Never would be too little.” Near the end of the universe, a bear and a goose – both nigh-omnipotent – ponder what a better universe would be like, and decide to act on their ideas.

Problems with Mind Uploading

Problems with Mind Uploading

(PG-13: Language) exurb1a performs a grand thought experiment in order to argue that said situation should remain theoretical. He considers the ethical, medical, technological, social and existential consequences if we were able to create digital copies of ourselves.

Regret in Heaven

Regret in Heaven

(PG-13: Language) “So what happens now? Do I get wings, or what?” exurb1a considers what might lie before us when we reach the end of the road of life. We’ll just say this – it’s not exactly what you might have learned in Sunday school.
