So I was sitting down to a bowl of my new favorite staple, Potato Pearls (a kind of instant mashed potato in pellet form), when I noticed how the boiling water made the pellets swell up and get soggy, and I thought to myself, "Wow, it's just like Bachelor Chow", right down to the pouring out of a large bag.

Are there any things in your life that remind you of objects we've only seen in the year 3000+?

I was watching Thunderbirds earlier today.  I still think the PE ship's takeoff in the pilot episode looks a lot like Thunderbird 2 taking off.

Well, I was rubbing a girls nipples today, and I thought, HEY! If these were purple, they'd be just like Leela's.

A watch is like a primitive version of her armband.. and our cars are like hovercars.

That's actually possible. You could use a SmartBoard, which is actually a computer connected to a projector which projects onto a screen which can detect which "marker" is writing on it, transmit that to the computer, which then puts it on the screen which is actually a projector, which gets projected onto the exact location where you were writing to begin with. Combine that with the handwriting recognition technology in Microsoft's Windows XP Tablet PC Edition and you've got yourself one of those chalkboards.

I remember and old computer game to the Amiga 500 or C64 (that old!) called "Battle Chess". When the pieces met, they would perform a little battle sequence. It reminded me of the chess-scene in "Brannigan Begin Again", a verbal interface is probably not that hard to integrate into the game. Although it wouldn't run on a C64 anymore.

Actually Teral, though I think BattleChess may have started out on the Commodore, It has been through several versions, the most recent a '94 (I think) PC release on cd-rom.

BattleChess 3000 (or was it 4000) was had great battle sequences - much better than those of the original BattleChess. Though still not superior to the graphics that the Amiga was capable of creating. Ya know, I had an Amiga once. An Amiga 2000.

Why would Leela's be purple? Nipple colour isn't related to hair colour.
