Default December (cough) 14



As promised (if technically a couple of hours late), here's content. Content! Remember a month ago when we marked the TOS Season 2 DVD set's release with two fivers at 5MST? Well, we're marking the Season 3 release with... okay, one fiver, but it's really good. Check out Wowbagger's Five-Minute "Requiem For Methuselah."


And come back tonight for the start of something big. Something bold. Something with barbecue sauce. It's the weeklong event you've all been waiting for and didn't even know it. Prepare your world for a rockin'....

Flint's speaker credits were hilarious. Arby's Oven Mitt indeed.

Nice fiver, Wowbagger.

Hey, a fiver.

Quote:
McCoy: Look, Rytalyn!
Kirk: I thought we were curing Rigellian fever, not ADHD.

Da Vinci: Hi, I'm Flint.
Kirk: But your speaker credit --
Da Vinci: Is irrelevant.

Gutenberg: I won't mention, then, that I am FLINT: THE INFINITELY PROLONGED! Whoops. Now I need to punish you.
Kirk: You just want a new ornament for your Christmas tree, don't you?
Gutenberg: I think you'll go very well next to the Voyager ornament Q sent me last year.

Spock: Well said, sir. It was a brilliant plan, aggravating the Logic Gods and hoping they would miss their target.
Kirk: But they hit their target.
Spock: No, captain, I'm quite sure they didn't.

(Hoping to cure Kirk's itchy, stuffy, sneezy nose, the Enterprise warps away to Planet Claritin at Ludicrous Speed)
Well done, Wowbagger.

BBQ sauce? Mmm. Can't wait. :3 This event wouldn't happen to be that thing you hinted at on AIM the other day, would it? The one you said I would love?

Mel Brooks rules! and I love the shifting speaker credits. Very funny.

BTW, Picard's Aunt Adele's ginger tea really does work for colds. I've been holding one at bay for a week now with two cups a day.


ETA: we all lost our titles? I'll skip the flag if I can have my title back.

The custom title mod was lost in a necessary phpbb upgrade, and will be restored as soon as I have the time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Nice work, wowbagger! and nice to see a fiver again - it's been a while...

Hey, Zeke, in your signature: Babies *are* a good source of rice - on rebounds. Not that I've tried it on our most recent family addition, but our oldest son has always a talent for spreading rice around... just a casual observation from the one who always ends up tidying the food table.

Am I preoccupied or am I preoccupied? Sorry about that, forgot to log in... the "guest" above was me. I blame it on the baby (but don't eat him).

That was me. SiliceousY is a zeolite rapper I made up for Halloween (lamest costume ever).

Oh! okay then. No rush. I'm just glad they're restorable.

Thank you all for your kind words.

My main purpose here, however, is to mention that "Pining for the Forge" had me very strangely but very intensely amused.

This "weeklong event," however, has me thinking... could the end of Enterprise "Week" have finally arrived?

No. That's next on the agenda after this, though.

Apologies for the delay with the event of which I spoke -- I've had a major crisis in my Master's program. Also 500 exams to mark. I'll make the update when I get home from this evening's Pure Math end-of-term party.

>> this evening's Pure Math end-of-term party <<

In one of his short stories, Arthur C. Clarke mentions a joke toast by (as I recall) a mathematician at a party full of engineers: "Here's to pure mathematics. May it never be of any use to anyone."
