My own feeling is that science fiction, of all the different forms of literature, is the one that most easily accepts the notion of change. Things are changing very quickly, and any kid who thinks about it knows that the world in which he or she will be a grown-up — which he or she will be helping to run — will be considerably different from this one. Maybe better, maybe worse, but different. Science fiction explores the future world.

I think more and more young people are beginning to feel that science fiction is the kind of literature that a person interested in reality should be reading.

- Isaac Asimov

A while back, I asked why it is that some science fiction is so good at predicting the future. Far and away, the most common answer was because people who read science fiction are then inspired to make that future a reality.

Asimov knew that.

Check out more from his 1983 interview with Dr. Julius Strangepork in Muppets magazine (yes, seriously) at Brain Pickings.

I guess I could say that’s true.

Filed under science fiction even though i am usually bored by hard sci-fi i really enjoy speculative fiction for this reason: we have always lived in cultures obsessed with the end of the world and science fiction is the genre that postulates that we will have a future after nuclear holocaust and the death of our planet we will live we will move and grow even if it's hitchhiking across the galaxy or having laser fights on mars or whatever it's good to think about the future as a thing that will happen

The last day Stacey walked into Jules’ workshop with bags under his eyes and a new tattoo was simultaneously the best and the worst day of Garrett’s life.

"Oh, honey," said Cory, who knew the signs by now. She put down the potato cannon blueprint she’d been sketching and gave him a big hug, standing on her tip-toes so her arms got all the way around his neck. "You’ve got to stop doing this to yourself.”

"Looks like she’s stopping it for me," Stacey sighed, patting Cory’s back. "She’s getting married next month. But hey, look, testosterone!" He unzipped his pants.

Garrett’s had a permanent crush on his coworker for almost as long as they’ve known each other, but Stacey has a long-term on-again, off-again thing with his ex. When they finally call it quits, Garrett has no excuse not to take the plunge - but how? He’s determined to find the most creative way to persuade Stacey to date him, even if it means a lot of false starts.

I may have taught this spider to knit. I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows. After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.

Maybe it thought you were a spider

I’m gonna level with you that’s the fucking cutest shit I have ever fucking heard of okay I want a little spider that knits not sits menacingly above my bed at night threatening to fall into my mouth.
