Linkages Of Randomness

So long, nerds! Syfy doesn’t need you: Yes, it's yet another rant about the Channel Formerly Known As Something I Might Actually Want To Watch. I appear not to have gotten tired of them yet. Also, I gotta say, this person has come up with the only idea that would get me to willingly watch wrestling.

The Gashlycrumb Losties: Terrific Edward Gorey-style riff on dead Lost characters. Of which there are, y'know, a lot. Needless to say: SPOILERS!

Fake Science: Fun made-up science "facts"! My favorite: "Why is coffee addictive? The coffee bean has a distinctive smell that makes you forget how painful it is to be awake." I think that might have to be my new .sig quote.

PHD Tales from the Road: New Mexico Tech and the VLA, Part 2 of 2: Part two of the PHD comic I linked to last week. For the record, a) the first panel is misleadingly phrased, as our dishes don't observe x-rays, and b) the answer to the ramen question is: "convection oven."

  2. Speaking of stripping... (Hey, what better segueway into the "bikini-clad men" comment from the not-sci-fi link?)

    this person has come up with the only idea that would get me to willingly watch wrestling.
    So if a bikini-clad Cap'n Jack tipped over a Dalek in the ring, could the Dalek right itself again?

  3. The modern Daleks, probably, since they can fly and all. A classic series Dalek would be in trouble, though.

    And I would so watch that. :)
