What Have You Learned About Earth This Week?

Waking to the news that Robin Williams has died will really make you feel like not bothering to get out of bed.

I fell for him a bit when Channel 4 repeated Mork & Mindy in my early youth, and later actively sought out his movies - even Popeye. Brilliant though he was in later and more serious roles, I'll always love his innocent, well-meaning Orkan the best.

callmemadam once proposed the theory that Robin actually was an alien, explaining both his unique talent and his fantastic hairiness. Until a better explanation comes to light, therefore, I am choosing to believe that he has merely returned to his home planet.
