Yep, Kira and 5MV even get credit on icanhazcheezburger's meme encyclopedia...

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/im-sor...w-awesome-i-am



I didn't learn this today but I learned it recently... On Farscape, Pilot is voiced by the guy that plays Captain Crais. I watched the entire series and never even began to suspect. IMBD even credits the actor with both but I assumed that had something to do with the body switching episode because it seemed so unlikely that they would be the same actor.

The worst part about that article is despite that fact that the online pseudonym is a female character, and despite the fact that the quoted fiver has "Copyright Carolyn" at the bottom, apparently Kira is a him.

"The line was written in February 2005 by Kira in his rewrite[1] of the 1967 episode “The Return of the Archons.”"

Also, rewrite?

You're getting forgetful in your old age, Nate.

Don't remind me. I should put forth a quote from that episode where Bashir turns thirty, if only I could remember a quote or the title.

"Distant Voices". One of my personal favourites, though like many S3 eps, it's more like TNG than DS9. (Several TNG writers had just come aboard, and they took time to adapt.) It ends with a classic Garak line: "To think, after all this time, all our lunches together, you still don't trust me. There's hope for you yet, Doctor."

I turn 30 this December, so I feel your pain.

All y'all can sod off. I was delighted to turn 30; it was like I was officially an adult. I didn't have to take anybody's shit any more, I didn't have to give anybody shit anymore, I was out of the shit business.

Forty is even better. There are sooooooo many things you realize that are just not worth the effort of wasting time and energy on. I mentioned this to a friend and her face lit up with an evil grin, and she said, "Now imagine what fifty is like."

Yeah, well, turning 30 with a career is a bit different than turning 30 and still being in grad school with no hope that you might ever finish.

Sigh. I loved school. I do miss it sometimes.

The same radioactive stuff that turned Matt Murdock into Daredevil created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (at least in the original black-and-white comics)!

On TaleSpin they based Baloo and Rebecca's relationship on Sam and Rebecca's relationship from Cheers! In retrospect the similarities are obvious.

The Japanese Sailor Moon Christmas album contains the song "When the Saints Go Marching In." What this song has to do with Sailor Moon OR Christmas is beyond me.

On August 10th Michael Ansara died. Not only was he Kang in Star Trek, but the voice of Mr. Freeze in Batman the Animated Series.

The amazing thing I learned today was the joining of these two facts. I had already associated "Ansara" with "Kang" and "Mr. Freeze", but hadn't actually connected the two.

Mythbuster's own Adam Savage is a fan of Hayao Miyazaki, and even made a No Face (from Spirited Away) costume!

Bing Crosby, Donald O'Connor, and Fred MacMurray were once in the same movie! A very young Donald and a younger Fred than I've ever seen, but there they are!

Corn was originally a generic term for any old cereal grain, and even today some British types will say "corn" to refer to whatever the local crop happens to be.

The reason they're called "upper case" and "lower case" is because printers would put the metal type for "lower case letters" in a place that's easier to get at, because they're used more often.

The same guy, Jim Thurman, voiced both Mr. Glitch on Square One and the Teeny Little Super Guy on Sesame Street!

King Abdullah II of Jordan is so much of an awesome ruler, he reportedly dropped bombs on ISIS from a F-16, personally went to a family and swore to avenge the loss of the son whom was burned alive, and did a non-speaking cameo on Voyager.
