Re: Rally to Restore Sanity

I will definitely be attending. I would propose we meet somewhere along the Voyage: A Journey Through Our Solar System http://www.sites.si.edu/exhibitions/exhibits/voyage/main.htm exhibit. Maybe around Venus. No one really seems to hang out there anymore, with Mars getting all these probes and Earth...

Re: "War" discussion (#769)

I'm really not getting the reference to Cordelia... Off the top of my head, we have Cordelia Chase, from the Buffyverse, but she's not in any wars per se- and certainly not as a sniper or infantrycheerleader. Cordelia, King Lear's youngest and honest daughter, but again, not a woman who is in an inf...

Re: "Dimensional Analysis" discussion

Google doesn't have anything nice to say about the units as given by draco18 http://www.google.com/search?q=0.5433+MWh+%2F+360+GPa+*+((51+mi%2Fg)+%2F+34km) Google thought (51 mi/g) was "Miles / Gram". It's little things like that that've made me switch to Wolfram Alpha in the past semester.

Re: "Contingency Plan" discussion

I would also add that the Dominion did this with the Jem'Hadar, to varying degrees of success. The most dramatic example of the success of the genetic engineering was an infant growing to a full adult in less than a week (don't ask where the extra body mass came from...). Victory is life!

Re: "Road Rage" Discussion

I'm starting to get the feeling that this girl is our very own Elaine...


Elaine has blond hair. However, Elaine is probably Journal Girl's friend, as she was last (probably) seen skating in the arctic (presumably) when Black Hat popped up in the "borrowed" Russian sub.

Re: "Road Rage" Discussion

I had an idea for a web site, but I don't have the resources to host it. It would be called "You are an asshole", and you could post the license plate of someone you thought was an asshole on the road and tell them exactly how you feel. All the permutations I can think of for "You ar...
