Re: Doctor Whom

Less than 24 hours! I am so excited. Especially because my friend, who gets BBC America, invited me to come watch it at her house. Meaning I'll actually get to watch as it airs for once.

Okay, time to go rewatch all the previews. Again.

Re: The "How Have I Never Noticed That Before?" thread?

There's a Seventh Doctor episode of Doctor Who where the Doctor wears a fez while holding a mop. I even watched it right around the same time watched all the Eleventh Doctor episodes. And yet I didn't make the connection until someone pointed it out to me today. There's a name thief who's been walk...

Re: Rant Thread (because we need more ranting)

Dearest brother of mine: Death threats, no matter how empty they may be, are not an appropriate way to deal with me asking you to do the dishes. Someday, perhaps when you're older than twelve, someone might take you seriously when you say that kind of thing. Not realizing that threats of physical vi...

Re: Rant Thread (because we need more ranting)

I understand if someone doesn't like dogs. However, if you don't like dogs and someone with a dog is walking down the street towards you, I think there are a variety of responsible, adult things you can do: a) Step off the sidewalk and go around the person. b) Walk quickly past them. or c) Give them...

Re: Childhood misconceptions

I remember being told my Scottish relatives were coming over to visit and thinking I wouldn't be able to communicate with them. Because, of course, only people from the United States can speak English. When a friend of mine was in third grade, her brother told her that the country Canadians come fro...

Re: the books of Jim Butcher

The books definitely start getting better after the first couple. I definitely remember not being too impressed with the first one, but now they're one of my favorite series.

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

There is a religion teacher at my high school who, if a student is being bad, will tell them she is throwing them off Noah's Ark. She also told someone that The road to hell is paved by people like YOU! When asked what her favorite animal is: Unicorns. Because they're dead. Then there's the history ...

Re: Fan Fiction

Probably the most interesting fic I've ever read is Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality by Eliezer Yudkowsky. Basically it's an Alternate Universe where Harry was raised by a scientist. It's notable for being funny and very original and unpredictable, although sometimes the science and ratio...
