If the Eleventh regenerated into Bruce Wayne, I'd be in a kind of Nerd Heaven that I never thought imaginable.

There's actually a larger issue here, at least with me, because I've frequently thought that if you let Wayne become 900 years old, he'd essentially become the Doctor: no special powers, per se; a love of toys; a joy taken in outwitting opponents; etc. The only difference is that the Batman fights, but like the Doctor, abjures the use of guns ... but over time, and with a proliferation of toys, I think the Batman might renounce kicking just as strongly as shooting.

(It's summer, I'm burnt to a crisp, and am allowed this little bit of Nerd Heaven, I do believe.)

Unfortunately, with a two-hour commute, your choices are limited to 1) actually re-listening to the second hour of All Things Considered or 2) noodling on in your own head about material you're writing book chapters on. I take it you can see what route I sometimes take.
