  1. And he still couldn't talk to her at the time. And the dream was the final punch line.
  2. Raj's Mom and Dad are his longest lasting relationship. Raj did get to meet Siri who called him sexy, and I think Raj was also pursuing Sheldon's sister Missy. I think Raj with Sheldon's sister would have created some amusing Sheldon Meltdowns.
  3. I keep thinking of a Very Brady Christmas, and wonder if a Very Sheldon Saturnalia is in the works. I hope for a small resurrection.
  4. House Science Panel Adds Climate-Denying Members Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), “I believe that climate change in this country is largely leftist propaganda to change the way Americans live and create more government obstruction and intrusion in our lives,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) “I do not believe climate change is occurring,” . “I do not think that humans have a significant impact on climate. The federal government should stop regulating and stomping on our economy and freedoms in the name of a discredited theory.” The committee has influence on climate research and environmental regulations. It has jurisdiction over $40 billion in federal budgets, and it oversees NASA, the Department of Energy, U.S. EPA, the National Science Foundation, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Some of the other new GOP members have acknowledged that humans play a role in changing the climate, but they stop short of saying it justifies stronger environmental protections. Republican Rep. Neal Dunn, a surgeon from Panama City, Fla., has said the United States should not follow “global warming alarmists” like President Obama. He said the science is too uncertain to justify environmental protections that could stifle industry. FOLLOW the link for full srtivcle.
  5. We live in different real worlds. In my world Sheldon would be a hoot, and get just as he gives. In the early days of computers, programmers had to share terminals. If you walked away from a terminal that someone else needed, they would log you off. Sometimes they would change your password so you would have to walk around asking "what's my password?" In one instance I changed my friend's log on message to say "Janet is a dummy because she can't make this message go away." When I logged on later that night my log on message said "Your mother swims after troop ships and catches them." I busted a gut laughing.
  6. Penny's Maiden Name is BUNDY!! Like in Al & Peg, King Kong, Kelly
  7. Computer Science: Airlines can't fly because of software upgrades; flash market crashes, identity theft, hacking, and the computer virus. The mainframe has been on it's death bed for some time now, but as far as I know it hasn't fallen victim to a virus. In the early years, us mainframers followed what was happening, and we laughed our Azzez off as the attempts to shift the paradigm ran into real world problems. It was usually scalability, but sometimes calculations weren't accurate enough for BIG business operations. They couldn't get calculations in floating point to always agree with fixed point results. My favorite fiction site isn't Fan Fiction here, it's LinkedIn. I was told by a director that getting a BS in CS was easy, she chose a school that gave credit for what they called work experience. So she earned her BS by using BS. I've worked WITH, not FOR, some CS people, some are awesome, most aren't. In the early years, there were Scientists working in the field, quite a few were Biologists. Most got their computer experience using the computer in their studies. Today the field has too many Diploma Mill graduates.
  8. What does Sheldon think of Psychology? I bet it's right up there with Geology. I recommend following the link vonmar posted. I liked this; " Contrary to common belief, eccentric individuals are often happier and more well-adjusted than "normal" people since they are much freer to break away from society's norms." I guess they don't buy the "non-optional social convention" rational. How 'bout this: " There is even a wikiHow page titled, "How to Act Like Sheldon Cooper" I like Sheldon the insensitive man-child who says things we wish we would/could have said. I just wonder why Sheldon doesn't lash out at Computer Science? Kurt would think that it's a true science because there's more than one right answer.
  9. I love the way she portrays her character. The Miss Quiznos 1999 was hilarious.
  10. I would like to see Larry, his brother Darryl, and his other brother Darryl in a Bob Newhart scene.
  11. I moved from NY to Colorado, the land of Recreational Marijuana. Edibles are a major part of the legal market. So, I have a clue. I tried an appetite stimulant strain that made carpet squares with ketchup more appealing than spaghetti with hot dogs. The pain killing strains work as well. The ROTFLMAO strains are great an hour or so before TBBT.
  12. Amy's fondness for her (electric) toothbrush. In one episode she runs to the bathroom claiming that she needs to brush her teeth, and adds that she will be a while. There's the episode The Adhesive Duck Deficiency S3.8 where Howard, Raj, and Leonard go out to see a Meteor Shower. Howard meets some middle school teachers wearing Grateful Dead T-shirts who give him some cookies. Leonard, Howard, and Raj eat the cookies, and miss the meteor shower. Their attack of the munchies is hilarious.
  13. Male or Female? This is a bigger question for males, especially Jewish males. The Circumcision is both medical, and religious. A benefactor of the religious ritual received $1 Million as a result of somebody taking a bit too much off the top. (True). (Doctor or Mohl, that is the question.) The Catholic church recognizes any baptism. As far as I know, the Mormons are the only ones who don't have a Baptism reciprocity agreement with the other churches. I'm a former Catholic. When I was about 7 years old, I baptized several of my Jewish friends so they could get into heaven. I remember their parents reaction; not so much the words, but the volume. While Jews for Jesus aren't Catholic, they are Christian, and Jewish. My family has Jewish/Christian hybrids who are now Druid adults.
  14. Several years ago, an attempt to regress adult stem cells to the pluripotent type was partially successful. The stem cells regressed, but went past the pluripotent type, and regressed to the totipotent type. The difference is that pluripotent cells can't produce a placenta, while totipotent cells can produce a placenta. So if you're male or female, you can produce a perfect clone of yourself down to your Mitochondrial DNA. The difference is that females can give birth to an exact copy of themselves. They're Identical Twins born years apart to different mothers. Males, on the other hand, need to find a female surrogate. If the girls begin to ponder their options, it could be amusing. Sheldon would see no problem in populating a small city with clones of himself, but he would need a willing female. Amy might reconsider mixing her DNA with Sheldon's to produce a superior offspring, and opt to mother herself instead. The Sheldon clones would be left without an oven to be a bun in. (Spin-off "In Search of The Sheldon Oven") Leslie Winkle (Sara Gilbert) would head up a movement to encourage female self reproduction with the slogan "go mother yourself". Bernadette has a multiple birth advantage. She could mother a basketball team of herself in one shot. Amy or Penny could sneak an extra Bernadette in. It's all about numbers. I think the writers and cast might have some fun with this. The robot arm might cause men to pause before mandating medical procedures for women. This is a political hot potato, but it might be thought provoking. Welcome to the forum, please read the forum rules, and the update by our admin.
