Nate, Hari Seldon, and I discuss Edgar Rice Burroughs's novel Tarzan of the Apes. Along the way, we also mention the contrast between the original and the 4th generation copies most of us have seen, whether Tarzan is a Mary Sue, the influence of s.f. & f. on gaming and vice versa, and the conservation of family ninjitsu.

The early 20th century saw a nomadic subculture spring up in the U.S., with their own way of talking among one another. I can't help but notice how, for a certain perspective, one famous poem looks a lot like one of those hobo signs.
