Hugo Voter Technology

Apples or oranges, which is best? Laura “Tegan” Gjovaag asked for Filers’ help in solving a dilemma:

I finished watching Stranger Things for the Hugos last night. How on earth am I supposed to judge a work that’s almost 7 hours long against 2-hour works?

For these situations I recommend the squeemeter.

Just hold it while you’re watching Best Dramatic Presentation nominees and let its patented galvanic measuring technology track your reactions. Figures don’t lie!

Bite my shiny plastic ___!

  1. This is correct. Until the Squeemeter says “Destroy all humans”.

    I know we have too many categories now, but we ought to have BDP Short (<75 min), BD Long (75 min- 3 hours) and BD Super-long (3 hrs and up).

  2. Laura: It’s uncanny. I say to myself, “I better not misspell her name.” I go back to the comment and look at the spelling. I get it wrong anyway!

    It used to be I would get your nickname wrong and spell your last name correctly, which was even crazier.

  3. I guess I just have one of those names….

    In happier news, I finally got to see Wonder Woman last night! While I enjoyed it greatly, it wasn’t the best movie I’ve seen this year. I did squee quite a bit when Etta came on screen though. She’s always been one of my favorite characters.
