  1. Yes, we do. It's Bloom. We saw it when Sheldon was looking at his Facebook page in "The Flaming Spitoon Acquisition." Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  2. They always slant promos in such a way as to get you to watch, so I always take them with a grain of salt the size of the Andromeda galaxy. :lol: Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  3. Then don't watch the episodes with her in it. You aren't required to subject yourself to something you don't like.
  4. Let me guess: NCIS was #1, right? Don't get me wrong, I love that show (Abby rocks!), but it's been finishing at #1 for, like, forever.
  5. Just saw We're the Millers with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudekis. (Sudekis is a small-time drug dealer who's roped into driving a boatload of marijuana across the Mexican border in a huge RV. He gets Aniston, a neighbor kid, and a homeless girl to pose as his family. Hilarity ensues.) We're not exactly talking High Art here, but it was a harmless and fairly amusing way to spend a few hours, provided you caught it at a cheaper matinee.
  6. Or a "Get Off My Lawn, You Darn Kids!" safe zone.
  7. There's still science and GeekStuff, it's just not front and center as much as it used to be. It's more subtly weaved into the plots instead of hitting us on the head like a sledgehammer. :D
  8. It was uploaded on June 26th. He was asked his opinion about the Paula Deen mess and the SCOTUS overturing part of DOMA, so yeah, pretty recent.
  9. Wishful thinking, dude. Best learn to deal with it 'cause they aren't going away.
  10. Based solely on my experience with other fandoms, I think that's exactly what will happen, which is why I wouldn't be in favor of it. Bruised egos and hurt feelings rarely stay inside the threads in which they were damaged (as we've seen lately), so why set up a powder keg and start handing out matches?
  11. To quote HAL 9000: "I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over." Or, perhaps more specifically, you should just stop putting so much stock into a bunch of off-the-cuff interviews and see the bloody episodes for yourselves before you all run screaming into rush hour traffic. You might very well find that you're stressing yourselves out over nothing. Sheesh...
  12. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what any of this has to do with Penny...
  13. I've long stopped relying on CNN (or, as more and more people are calling it, Fox News Lite) for anything even remotely approaching reliable and factual news. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  14. I say go with the Blu/DVD combo pack. That's what I'm doing, since it's only a few bucks more. Knowing them, they'll pull another stunt like they did for the Season 1 Blu/DVD release (where they put the new S1 outtakes on Blu only), so I want to be prepared.
  15. That was big back when the original "Star Trek" was syndicated. People would get the discarded clips, trim them into slides (a big thing back then), and sell them. Kinda annoyed Lincoln Enterprises, Roddenberry's company that was the official seller of Trek merchandise at the time. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  16. This does hit on the fundamental reason why Shenny would never work: neither of them thinks highly about the other in the areas that matter to them. Sheldon has stated over and over again how he does not think much of Penny's intelligence, and as we know, intelligence is high up on (if not at the top of) Sheldon's "this is important to me" list. He would have absolutely no patience for Penny's comparative lack of intelligence. On the flip side, Penny has made no bones of the fact that she isn't impressed by Sheldon's lack of empathy and feelings towards others. With Penny being an emotional person, dealing with Sheldon would be a nightmare for her. About the only way Shenny would work is if both of the characters underwent radical changes, the result being that they would no longer be the characters we currently know. Given all of this, why anyone thinks that Shenny would work (or even be desirable) is beyond comprehension.
  17. Makes the Season 4 cover art look good, IMHO.
  18. To put it in plain language: he acts like an arrogant a**, and when called on his behavior, he acts all superior, accuses us of not "getting it," and blames everyone else for the trouble he's caused. That's not the behavior of someone who's interested in healthy debate and rational discourse; on the contrary, it's the behavior of someone who feels he's superior to everyone else and won't accept the possibility that he might be wrong in his beliefs and that others might be right.
  19. It's impossible to kick a field goal when someone keeps moving the goalpoasts.You are trying to argue logically with someone who constantly changes the argument to thwart your every move, while belittling everyone and puffing up his own sense of importance in the process. You'd have better luck trying to squeeze orange juice out of a rock.
  20. I don't normally read fanfic these days (especially after reading more than twelve years of it in the "Daria" fandom), but I'm a sucker for "fill in the blanks" stories and I'm enjoying this one. Good job so far! Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  21. Not exactly thrilled about it, either. It makes the cheesy Season 4 cover look good by comparison. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  22. My wonderful girlfriend. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk
  23. We all have our preferences. Why should Sheldon be any different? Personally, I use Linux Mint on my laptop for rolling my own personal releases of Android. (Takes a couple of hours, though, which is why I have it on my laptop instead of on my main desktop machine.) I prefer Mint because it gives me the advantages of Ubuntu with a sane, familiar GUI that's not the abomination known as Unity.
