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!
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).
Try to propose that and you’ll see the return of the people wanting a category for things less than 15 minutes long.
Should I mention he spelled my last name wrong, or just be amused?

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.
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.
