Hello there, Kotaku readers. It's perfectly safe to enter the waters of tonight's open thread. The non-video game related discussion is just fine, so dive in for some stimulating conversation and maybe a link or two.

We're slowly building our San Diego Comic-Con schedule here, kicking off a month of travel for yours truly. Somehow I need to find the time to take some time. But Comic-Con should be fun and I greatly look forward to returning to San Diego for one of the best cons of the year. Anyone going?


Please, talk amongst yourselves or enjoy some of these internet distractions.
