    I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.

    Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.

    Everyone needs more Discworld in their lives. It’s brilliant satire that isn’t condescending, and it’s entertaining. At the same time! I really can’t express how much I love Discworld.

    Everyone really does! I recommend it to everyone who comes into my work (it’s a bookshop so not all that weird)

    "average fictional cop arrests 100 people at a time" factoid actually statistical error. average fictional cop arrests 1 person at a time. sam vimes, who arrested two entire armies at once, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.

    I think the Discworld fandom may be my favorite on tumblr. No drama, no shipping wars, no fighting, and everyone just seems so nice.
