  1. Okay, I figure no one got this one... Its from "V for Vendetta" Try this one:
  2. Granted, but it messes with your depth perception. You trip, fall and break your nose. Result; you go cross-eyed... I wish I could teleport.
  3. So there I was painting a kitchen and I was hit by a really random thought... How do the writers of TBBT (and other shows) decide on character names, and is Amy Farrah Fowler in fact a Lord of the Rings reference... I was thinking of the conversation between the hobbits and Strider (Aragorn son of Arathorn II) on their way to Rivendell. Specifically: I know it is random and tenuous but it made me chuckle and I had to share
  4. Consider "Duct Tape"... Duct Tape is like The Force. It has a dark side and a light side and it holds the universe together...
  5. VERY well done! Thats the bunny!!!! I have always been awful with names, end every time I enterd the quote in Google I got swamped with Bill Hicks. You hit the nail (or French philosopher) right on the head. Thanks :D
  6. Hmmm, might be, although the first thing to come to mind when I think of René Descartes is: "Cogito ergo sum" (English: I think, therefore I am) Descartes walks into a bar. The bartender walks up to him and says, “Would you care for a drink?†Descartes replied, “I think not.†and disappears.
  7. You are quite correct, I am a Twin Peaks fan, and a fan of the work of David Lynch. Kyle MacLachlan has appearred in many of David Lynch's movies including Dune which I enjoyed, even though it was a very diluted version of Frank Herberts books, I think that might have been the first thing I saw Kyle MacLachlan in.
  8. I do have a deep and abiding hatred of this habit that TV producers have of taking a show that was sucessful in one country and trying to remake it taylored for their audience. It shows a lack of imagination understanding of what made it sucessful in the first place, not to mention the lack of courage and willingness to invest in new shows and writing talent. Unfortunatly this behaviour is endemic in the movie industry as well, as shown by the number of pointless and poor remakes of old movies (Very few of wich work). RANT OVER...
  9. How do you know that the driver driving toward you is a physicist? He has a red sticker on his bumper, saying: "If this sticker is blue, you are driving too fast."
  10. Haha nice one! Thanks :D and Welcome to the forum
  11. In the next 5 minutes I will be walking through the woods to get home. I'm at the library at the moment and I need coffee!
  12. Never seen the show, not sure it has aired in the UK yet, but I will be keeping my eyes open for it as I am a Kyle MacLachlan fan I read the Imdb entry for it and it looks okay at a glance :D
  13. Granted, but you are sad, because you have missed more than 30 years of your life... I wish the tax office (inland revenue), were not a bunch of "feminine clensing products that might be used on a warm summer evening...."
  14. HI scaryann, welcome to the forum, I hope you enjoy your visits here and I know you will like the people (a warm and fuzzy crowed they are, yeees. )

    Bones

    I do enjoy Bones, just been sitting here thinking about it and I find it really hard to pick a favorite character, although I do have a favorite guest character... Dr. Gordon Wyatt is great, I am a huge Stephen Fry fan I would love to see him talking to Sheldon
  16. Two physicists are flying in their hot air ballon and get lost. They drift low to the ground and see a man. One shouts out, "Where are we?" to which the man on the ground responds, "You're in a balloon." The other physicist then asks, "Are you a mathematician?", to which the man on the ground answrs "Yes." As they float off, the first physicist asks, "How did you know he was a mathematician?". The other responds, "Well, he was completely accurate, and completely useless."
  17. Greetings ulfrik, welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your visits and enjoy the people here
  18. We've already tried to unite the procrastinators but it just didn't seem to work. I think we might run into the same problem here I really should procrastinate, but I keep putting it off

    NCIS

    N.C.I.S. is one of my favorite shows. A few years ago I was involved in setting up an N.C.I.S fan fiction site NFA Community I have just been back there and decided to put up a writing challenge. An N.C.I.S. / Big Bang Theory crossover story. I think it might be fun to see some comedy interaction between the two teams When the challenge is posted I'll put up alink to it here so that anyone who is interested can go and have a read
