Thanks for stopping by Public Domain! It may not have been the droids you were Googling for, but since you’re already here — and in the spirit of the endlessly spiralling, time-devouring Habitrail of Doom the Internet best embodies — why not check out some of our past posts?
The funny, nerdy stuff is here, reviews are here, and thoughts / opinions / observations on various writing-related topics here. Two of our regular ongoing features are Tales to Admonish!, which pokes sarcastic fun at old comic books, and we’re big on memes in these parts, which you can find over here. (Wow, it’s like having your own personal digital concierge. Now if only we could figure out how to make a spout pop out of the side of your monitor / laptop screen / tablet / smartphone and serve your favorite beverage. Science, forget the jetpacks and flying cars, and get on that instead.)
