  1. It's like that episode of Futurama where Fry's dream turns into an ad for something.
  2. Eew! I don't think I'll be using hand-dryers ever again now... This Cheerios commercial aggravates me every time I see it. Lately I've take to switching channels when it comes on.
  3. Out of curiosity, what exactly do you consider as acceptable headgear for guys?
  4. Those loan companies don't care if they have the right person or not. Next ask for the companies name and contact info [politely] tell them again for the umpteenth time they they have the wrong guy you'll be providing your lawyer with their information. Hopefully that will get the calls to stop.
  5. "Wally" opens up communication with guests at work and allows some familiarity. I've also gotten plenty of tips since I changed over to it. But it's really only a work/Nightly thing. Just curious, is your office space/cubicle/etc. adorned with Dilbertian Wally highlights? Like such...
  6. :thumbsup: Hahahah, that's great! Someone was parking lot stalking me the other day when I was in the wrong aisle. I wasn't purposefully going down the wrong aisle though, I just happened to be walking straight back and was going to cut over an aisle when I was near my car. This Bisquick Shake & Pour commercial annoys me: Everytime I see it I can't help but add the dialogue "Hey kids! Look how much I care about you, I made pancakes in a detergent bottle!" Pancakes aren't difficult just some self-rising flour, one egg, and some milk -- that's all there is too it.
  7. What - no one has gone to dig up more SWHS videos yet? How about Boba Fett's first appearance...
  8. Surprisingly - there are still plenty of SWHS vids up on Youtube, take this one for instance...
  9. Did some digging, and found some from the UK, US, and Canada. I wouldn't call any of them dumb, some are certainly funny and others are unusual/noteworthy. {obviously some are unusual now since they share a name with something that's become well known later} Towns/cities in UK [Counties listed, all in England unless otherwise noted] Climpy (Strathclyde, Scotland) Little Snoring (Norfolk) Dollarbeg (Fife, Scotland) Ham and Sandwich (Kent) Giggleswick, North Yorkshire Kilmahog (Central Scotland) Little Sodbury (Avon) LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERYCHWYRNDROBWLLLLANTYSILIOGOGOGOCH, Anglesy, W
  10. I'm currently reading the Rex Stout's Black Orchids - another fine Nero Wolfe story, well pair of stories. I'm also reading The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian - it has the first 12/13 stories [in the order they were written, and original versions] of Robert E. Howards most famous creation. This is pure REH - no pastiches to muddy the waters here, and its very impressive. Subsequent work by other writers [as well as Conan's presentation in other media], have largely diluted the character among the general public, making him blend in with the host of barbarian characters that followed him.
  11. Piper's return to the show [even for just three episodes] strikes me as kind of scrambling to recapture lost viewer attention/hype - a ratings stunt. It's not I'd expect in a show that's supposedly 'healthy' [TV business-wise]. And unfotunately with Rose's return - since Davies is persistent in his silly & tiresome "Female companion X loves the Doctor, but the Doctor may/may not know it" routine - the Doctor will undoubtedly be stuck into a Love Rectangle/Rhombus/pick a 4 sided shape.
  12. Metallo - his origin story [silver Age] is a prime candidate for a movie. It just boggles the mind that no one wants to use it.
  13. It's obvious what's happened: Superboy Prime flew by and punched Junior out of movie continuity...
  14. Oh? Interesting - I've not noticed Doctor Who Confidential listed in the programming of my local Public TV station, but I've not really thought to look for it either. I'll have to keep an eye out for it this coming weekend.
  15. The Sci-Fi Channel isn't running DWC, I'm not sure it's running anywhere outside the UK for that matter. In any case, DWC isn't the series itself so relying on it to provide necessary explanations really would be sloppy writing. Didn't this Master, when asked by the Doctor, say that the Time Lords regenerated him? As a weapon against the Daleks? (Retroactively suggesting that was the Doctor's role at the beginning of the 1996 film.) Not in Utopia at least - the Doctor's and the Master's conversation is mostly limited to the Doctor pleading with the Master not to take the TARDIS,
