Watching Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and I'd forgotten about the scene where Catherine Hicks tells Shatner "I belong here; I am a whale biologist" big grin

Somebody on Wheel of Fortune tonight is from Nutley, New Jersey.

I wonder if she takes the 1015. tongue

This was the textbook we used in O-Chem. Don't tell me you didn't read that as Solomons & Fry Hole.

Why yes, I did read it as Fry Hole smile

Also the image in the centre is vaguely reminiscent of a certain space probe / death sphere from In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela big grin





And an amazing shot of a real-life whale acting like Möbius Dick! (pardon the added cheesy sound effect)

Some friends posted links to these candy candles, and of course I couldn't help but think of 'U LEAVE ME BREATHLESS' smile

Grinding away on my bike ride yesterday when an old blue pickup passed me.  With a variation of this hand-painted on the tailgate:

They zipped by rather quickly, but I gave a big thumbs-up as fast as I could smile

This wasn't recent, but I remember this one time in English class when the teacher brought up the acronym PEEL while we were going over how to write an essay or something. I don't really remember what it stood for, probably because of the initial shock and excitement. big grin

This happened to me, also! Back in high school.

I passed by a Seagram's Strawberry Daquiri beverage at the end of an aisle at Safeway the other evening. I was about to purchase it, as it seemed like a pleasant way to end the day, until an employee told me that they had more flavors elsewhere in the store, including a fuzzy navel one.



Hey bar keep, I'll have a fuzzy navel and she'll have the girliest drink in the house.

Two fuzzy navels coming up!

(I had never had a daquiri nor a fuzzy navel before, nor any beverages flavored as such. When the employee mentioned the term "fuzzy navel," however, there was no doubt which variety I was fated to purchase and consume.)

Only for girlymen! tongue

Yeah, it was a pretty low ABV, so it was mostly just sweet, fruity flavoring.

Was that 40% dolomite?

There's a science-based magnet school in St. Paul called the Farnsworth Aerospace Academy. Not sure if the curriculum touches on quantum neutrino fields.

This Lego element I was using earlier today reminds me of a certain psychopathic robot.

"Fifty-six!"

Random bit of trivia: Codwainer Smith (Paul Linebarger) wrote lots of science fiction books, where the number 56 kept popping up.

I'm watching Formula One racing, and was *stunned* to see a commercial featuring Stephen Hawking!  Maybe he's done them before, but this is the first time I've seen one.

It reminded me of Futurama because the first thought that came to mind was "Hawking Hole" big grin

My mom's chiropractor looks like Billy West.

Should I ask him to do voices? Or read some Trump quotes?

So, Skype conversation I was having earlier today, regarding a sim-racing league that I am a member of, and we're all having a get together in early December in a bar in Cardiff, only right now there's a major split going on and tensions are high, so the guy I was talking to, who is kinda in the middle of this fallout, jokedly suggests that we should find another bar and set up our own, anti-league meeting, to which I am tasked, I am tasked to exclaim "with Blackjack! And Hookers!!!"

So yeah, you could say the moment reminded me of Futurama... big grin

Unfortunately my friend wasn't reminded of Futurama. hmpf

Well, in that case, enjoy the actual blackjack and hookers at the anti-league get-together!

It was not something he had in mind unfortunately.

For the longest time I was wrongly convinced that Futurama was a niche interest, then I became convinced it gained cult status, so everyone knew about it.

Or maybe my friend is a philistine. Anyway, made the conversation more interesting.

Yeah, I see Futurama references everywhere and they usually make me smile.

A co-worker from 10+ years ago and I stay in touch on FB.  He lives on a boat, and posted a photo of his cat getting into a cupboard with a comment along the lines of "Bender found the kitty treats".  Knowing nothing about his show interests, I replied tentatively: "Bender, as in Bender bending Rodriguez? and attached a screencap of Bender.

Yep, kitty is named after the character, and I still have no idea what led to his naming the cat Bender smile
