Re: "The Carriage" discussion (#788)

Another tune that works is the Australian national anthem. Of course, it works the other way around too, so I always end up trying to sing the anthem to the tune of Gilligan's island :) Yeah, but put as Adam Hills demonstrates, it's awesome when sung to the tune of working class man! http://www.you...

Re: "Spirit" Discussion

Why is it that we feel sad for this machine? Like it has feelings? :| ... Poor thing. :( "For the same reason I can pick up this pencil, tell you its name is Steve and go like this-" *breaks pencil and Abed lets out little gasp* "-and part of you dies, just a little bit on the inside...
