Out of the Blue

The calendar says it's December 30, but the thermometer reads 50° Fahrenheit. Trying to correlate these contradictory facts is making me feel like the AI at the end of the Mudd's Women episode of Star Trek trying to correlate the "I am lying" lie. Bzzzt! Bzzzt!

It was when Giants Citizen Kabuto first came out and, at the last moment, they decided to kurb the nudity for the US market.


I remember that whole mess...

Sorry Enahs, but the this board doesn't let you search posts that far back, as I've just tried to find it myself:(

It was when Giants Citizen Kabuto first came out and, at the last moment, they decided to kurb the nudity for the US market. The Dude thought it foolish and said so. Someone else decided to make it a moral debate and, I think, personally aimed their response his way. When he responded, he did so with 15 or so paragraphs of well thought out, considered, fair and logical argument, none of which was really written in his own defense, except for the last few words which were something like "and anyway, you're an idiot."

Anyway... I had a mouthful of coffee which quickly spurted over much of my computer. At the shock of seeing coffee about to meet electricity, I yanked myself and all the crap on my desk backward and when my screen finally dropped that 3.5' to the floor below it ceased to be in good working order.. The only time I ever had a 21" screen:(

There is no shame in knowing how good Star Trek can be, as long as it's TNG and not that one which dared not to feature Enterprise. I've even started to like this one with Scott Bakula and I'd like to thank my local TV network for once again finishing a season in the middle of a two part episode... They ended 2000 with part 1 of the 'Best of both worlds' and, from memory, failed to start the following season with part 2. Someone should screw the programme directors at GTV9 with a very big and sharp stick!

Also... why still no Quantum Leap on DVD?!

I can't recall a specific JediLuke Vs. The Dude encounter, but I can certainly remember a few of The Dude's more entertaining moments.. Two years back, one of his posts really did cost me a $2144.00 Sony monitor.
It's always good to see the wisdom of the AntiELVIS on the boards, although I'm also offering a vote for his return to Gracelessland, too. I learned a lot about things that interest me from that site... of course, I'm assuming he knew what he was talking about....%)

Very clever reference to an amusing moment in a Star Trek episode. However, this didn't occur in the Mudd's Women episode, but the I, Mudd episode. How's that for geeky??

Someone get me some tape for my glasses please...

The problem with name changes here is someone else may claim your old nickname, either by accident, or to be malicious.

Name changes should be banned as I often scroll through threads and only stop at those I know should be amusing or intelligent. This includes you, Hump...
All the above only pertains to others since I've gotten sick of my nic this last year and will change it soon.
Things I'd like changed on this website...

1: Pilfer the spell check feature from Hotmail to keep Enahs happy:)
2: If I ever forget my password for here, then I'll need an ID change, anyway, since I long ago closed the email account I signed up with. Of course, someone who's not in a happy mood just pointed out I "never f'ing forget anything" so I may be safe. I don't know how much of a ball breaker it would be to make it possible to update such info, so I'll add it to my "this would be nice but I can live without it list."
Well, I'm now into my second hour of 2004 and look forward to cleaning the remnants of someone's dog off the front of my car in the morning. They should castrate people who don't look after their pets, especially on a night where you know every second person will be playing with fireworks! I should be thankful I couldn't afford Jenna's Viper otherwise I'd be needing floss to clean out its radiator..

Oh.. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Anyone have any New Year's Resolutions? Or should I ask that one tomorrow?

- W. Somerset Maugham

Hmm... how about one to remember for New Year's:

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass & think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes & dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work & their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer & let their dreams come true than to be selfish and worry about my liver.'"

Halsy, for no apparent reason dropped his nick of ‘Weas’ and set up a new account.

seriously considering doing the same here.
