How does one explain Doctor Who to someone (family, co-workers, hostages, etc.) who has never watched anything relating to sci-fi? My explanations seem to be lacking or rambling on for longer than most people care to listen.
She doesn’t even watch Doctor Who. This is so odd…
Once I tried to jokingly convince a secretary at work to name her soontobeborn “Copernicus”. I can hold a straight face while I rattle pros to doing so. Later she said she was going to go with Nicolaus—to which I never informed her that it would have been the first name of Copernicus.
My first Kickstarter thing came in! Its a Macbook Pro 15” specific laptop cooler. Its all nifty and barely noticeable. Macbook users generally know that the laptop gets toastier the longer it gets used and most laptop coolers look aesthetically unpleasing. Kickstarter, for those of you who don’t know, is a website where you help upcoming companies get funding so they can start selling you things. If you donate enough they usually give you one of whatever they’re trying to make.
So I gave MadMinds some money, they started a company, and I got myself a nifty laptop cooler that can… attach to a camera tripod for some reason.
“Marry, Boff, Kill: The Doctor, Rory, Amy."
“Kill The Doctor, Boff Rory, and Kill Amy.”
“The Doctor would just regenerate—hoping for a ginger! Rory doesn’t seem like he gets much love from the fanbase so he gets a pitty boff, and Amy’s current survive to killed ratio is unfair to Rory. ”—
Sometimes I think about parallel lines and I feel bad for them. Here are two lines who have a lot in common and yet will never ever meet. But then you think of perpendicular lines; you have two lines who get closer and closer together before meeting once and then getting further and further away for infinity.
I think that there are two Docky Who aliens that would do very well in mainstream media. The Silence and the Weeping Angels. And yes, I am talking about doing the unintuitive step of removing time travel and any version of the Doctor or the TARDIS and keeping aliens who will be defeated by a ragtag team of teenage humans without help.
I mean, Weeping Angels and The Silence exist without the Doctor. Theres plenty of room there for a movie about what they do in between whoopins.
“I would hate to be the [literal] Doctor. Imagine having a wife who will find out about all of your lies—not through investigative work, but through simple living your life in reverse. What if she finds out the source of the glitter on my face? I told her its from the strip club when really I just really really like glitter.”—
Since 2006 I have been an avid Firefox supporter. I would secretly convert people’s computers and change the icon to look like Internet Explorer 6.
On a new computer downloading FireFox was always (read: ALWAYS) the top 3 things I did first. Then Chrome came out. I ignored it. Just another browser to be forgotten like Opera or Safari or even that social media based one. TechCrunch would always run articles on Chrome’s growing popularity—which is to be expected as Google is a strong company. Its the only reason IE got so popular (Microsoft backing it and all).
So earlier this week I downloaded Chrome on my Mac. First thing I noticed: It has full screen; something Firefox has been lacking. It has a real new tab page and doesn’t do the whole color spinwheel as much.
Most of my favorite extensions have an equivalent and the ones that don’t, aren’t ones I can’t live without.
If you watch NASA backwards you have a space agency that struggles for funding, achieves low earth orbit, helps build an international space station, and finally fakes a moon landing before being shut down.
One of my biggest pet peeves is how shady stargazing is. A man alone in a field alone? It does explain why people keep trying to shine their highbeams on me when I use my Dobsonian XT8 behind the baseball field.
I was born in Alexian Brother’s Hospital (don’t hold me to it, I used Google to help me remember). I quickly became the best baby there and advanced into kindergarden. After two or three years of that I moved onto grade school.
Middle Middle Filler Middle…
I currently work as a CAD designer for jewelry. My desk has a SpacePilot and Nostromo, the latter I could not get my bosses to buy for me so I bought it myself ($70) at ThinkGeek.com. One of my hobbies is stargazing, I have an Orion Dobsonian XT8 (Google it, its pretty large for the average person, but apparently a dwarf to people who are serious about it).
