Hey, there are few things an h2g2 quote can't cover.

@mudshark: Now you've got The Song That Never Ends stuck in my head. I hope you're happy.

A fun series of tests for the post office. Can you mail a sheet of glass without it breaking? Will a dummy bomb get through the post office? Can you get the post office to break a law against opening mail by placing the stamps inside a clear container?

Since that result was not my intention and indeed had not even occurred to me, I think I can safely say that it's your problem exclusively and not likely to cost me any sleep at all.

And who's this Rachel when she's at home?

Nate the Great 10-18-2007 04:32 AM

Okay, really obscure. Rachel Greene (I insist on the silent "e") is a character from Friends. One day she walks in on the now-married Chandler and Monica Bing. They've been arguing, but cover it up with a lame joke as Rachel enters, following it up with overly hysterical laughs.

Oh. Never watched it.

Gasp! Heathen! Burn him! Burn him!

That's really quite an achievement.

Nate the Great 10-20-2007 03:14 AM

Positively amazing.

Not so hard, really -- I just never turned it on. You'd be surprised how well that works; did it for Seinfeld, too.

To be absolutely fair, I did see the end credits (catchy closing theme! :D ) quite a bit, because another show I did watch came on just after the 6 and 6:30 reruns of Friends, and I was in fact present during one episode while at a friend's house (the same evening, I also watched the first Spider-Man movie, which was another thing I had certainly never planned on doing. Ever. I had to figure out his new DVD player for him, though, and so it went.)

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...PrimeDirective

So this is the most complete version of the Prime Directive I've ever seen, but I'm not sure how authoritative it is. Here's the excerpt as written:

"As the right of each sentient species to live in accordance with its normal cultural evolution is considered sacred, no Star Fleet personnel may interfere with the healthy development of alien life and culture. Such interference includes the introduction of superior knowledge, strength, or technology to a world whose society is incapable of handling such advantages wisely. Star Fleet personnel may not violate this Prime Directive, even to save their lives and/or their ship unless they are acting to right an earlier violation or an accidental contamination of said culture. This directive takes precedence over any and all other considerations, and carries with it the highest moral obligation."

It must've been written during the Trek Dark Ages, because nobody ever writes Starfleet as two words anymore, do they?

I had to send you guys this one. I will quote:

"Captain Kathryn Janeway, a borderline coffee addict, found the substance unappealing."

Borderline? BORDERLINE? Janeway is not a "borderline coffee addict." She's so south of the border she's swapping cappuccino recipes with Speedy Gonzalez. She's been there so long her Social Security card expired. She's so far--SLAP!

I'm fine now. Really. :wink:

Hmm.

How about Flying Lessons as a substitute?

EDIT:

For reasons of karma, I must, to balance this, also inflict upon you this abhorrence.
