Re: 1278: "Giraffes"

That is darned cute. When they change the tail, I hope they leave the tongue alone. Those things have a Great tongue, now. The tail is pathetic. The larger thicker tail is an attractive idea. There's something vaguely disturbing about your post. I'm not quite sure what it is though. Great tongue an...

Re: 1255: "Columbus"

In fact, Ferdinand and Isabella were the only monarchs uneducated enough to believe Chris's crackpot theories and fund his obviously doomed expedition.

Re: 1253: "Exoplanet Names"

A friend of mine, riffing on Cordwainer Smith's planet "Old North Australia," came up with "New New South Wales."

Or as everyone insisted on calling it, New New South South Wales Wales.

Re: 0966: "Jet Fuel"

Clearly the Lizardmen are a cover for the Illuminati who in turn are a cover for the little green men, who are, in turn, using 9/11 to cover up their mind control contrails! OK, here's what we've got: the Rand Corporation, in conjunction with the saucer people -- under the supervision of the revers...

Re: 0965: "Elements"

In the anime Seikon no Qwazer -- which I don't recommend for anyone who doesn't have a lactation fetish, because it really has nothing going for it but boobs -- the resident superhumans can manipulate but NOT create one chemical element each.

Re: 0902: "Darmok and Jalad"

Language in Darmok: http://tenser.typepad.com/tenser_said_the_tensor/2006/12/darmok.html Basically, 'metaphors all the way down' makes no sense, childhood language acquisition becomes impossible, and the universal translator doesn't work with this plot. Thank you. That's a much more detailed and co...

Re: 0902: "Darmok and Jalad"

I just always thought that those aliens would never have actually been able to develop a warp capable society with a language where trying to describe even the most basic concept took a fifteen minute story, at best. Electric circuits, mater/anti-mater reactors, warp fields, yeah right. They'd be l...

The worst pain known is being heavily stung by the Australian box jellyfish.

Take me down to the Paradigm City Where the domes are lit and the 'bots are pretty - Let's go Big O! Showtime! Haha! A "Big O" reference FTW! I was thinking of "Paradigm City" but couldn't think of an appropriate rhyme... I have been waiting literally years to find a good place ...
