  1. This response is to a now hidden post-Tensor. Why put up a page for Gothowitz? Well...there's this... It's a fun episode with diabolically witty dialogue throughout. And, yes you're quite right, the French toast is for Leonard, although presumably there's enough for Sheldon as well since she offered him some. But "Sheldon being Sheldon" (a chap we quite like by the way), that creature of immutable schedules, simply can't conceive of a world where one makes French toast willy nilly on any old day of the week. And especially not on Oatmeal Day. Heaven forfend! He's IMPOSSIBLE. Er, improbable. Hence "worlds collide" and all that...
  2. Greetings, Forum Dwellers! We have a delectable new page for The Gothowitz Deviation. Enjoy. http://www.thebigbangtheoryhq.com/#!the-gothowitz-deviation/mh9ql
  3. Greetings! When we're not busy stocking the shelves of our imaginary shop with baby griffins and sonic death rays and Secret Agent Laser Obstacle Chess Sets (lunch sold separately), we are resolutely conquering (read: trying to figure out) the ever expanding borders of social media. To that end we have tentatively stuck our foot into the waters of Instagram. https://instagram.com/bigbangtheoryhq/ Some examples of the random and irresponsible "cartoonification" (thanks, Count) you can expect now and then...
  4. Images created by a web-based app called Dreamscope, which in turn is based on Google's Deep Dream AI project. https://dreamscopeapp.com/create Computers essentially "hallucinate" images based on what they've been trained to see. Ie a computer that's been fed a database of dog pictures will then "see" dogs everywhere. Or something. I'm most likely not explaining this very well. The app is simple to use and comes with 16 filters that can give any picture a rather terrifying psychedelic aspect, with glowy eyes and snouts and amoeba-like shapes etc. My favorites, and what I've used here, are Trippy, Self Transforming Machine Elves, and Botanical Dimensions.
  5. There is no law of diminished comedic returns with space poop. Witness... The Wolowitz Emulation Howard Wolowitz (M.Eng) from "The Big Bang Theory". Inventor of the "Wolowitz Zero-Gravity Waste Disposal System", shown here with meatloaf "test waste" (designed to simulate the typical output of a hardy potato-eating Russian cosmonaut).
  6. Soooo.... Comic-Con, huh? I can commiserate with some of you in that nothing was mentioned about one of MY favorite couples, Howard and Gadgets. Not to mention Sheldon and Whiteboard and Dialogue and Surrealism. *sob* Not to worry, I will simply console myself with this garishly hued homage to our resident engineer. Duh duh DUH. Echo voice, please. Ahem. THE FLYING SPACE TOILET. Boldly going... Well, you get the drift.
  7. What's up, my nerdizzles? A new page on Shenny HQ celebrating the incomparable Howard Joel Wolowitz, that's what. http://www.thebigbangtheoryhq.com/#!howard-wolowitz/c1isv

  12. Thank you, Wisp! (Your check is in the mail.) Seriously, though, I think grumpiness is a better word, and it's largely confined to the current season forum. Surely it can come as no surprise that the Shennys and the Sheldonites are not always pleased with certain developments within the show? But as Wisp has generously pointed out there are wayyyy more threads that celebrate (not denigrate). There's a lovely Shelnard thread and one I rashly started in an effort to celebrate the many manifestations of that colorful peacock, Mr. Wolowitz. I say "rashly" because google ain't wanting to cough up some of the more splendiferous examples of his brightly hued ensembles. What up with that? ETA: The forum is not the real headline here. That honor goes to the main site, with its episode summaries and visual opulence, that we think fans of ALL stripes can enjoy and chuckle along with us.
  13. I don't agree that Sheldon is as humor-impaired as he was made out to be in The Hesitation Ramification with his overly literal interpretations of the guys' jokes. Sheldon's understood and responded to humor before. Remember all the quips they made when Howard's space toilet malfunctioned? Sheldon clearly got them and even made the comment about there not being a law of diminishing returns on jokes about space poop, which indicates to me that he was amused by the whole thing. And, yes, I know the episode was more about him trying to learn HOW to be funny, but there at the beginning he was, I thought, uncharacteristically befuzzled about Howard's joke. And what about his inimitable use of the Bazinga? I always took that to be his humorous way of negating what he'd just said previously, usually at someone's expense. He seemed to understand the comedic value of the "gotcha." Even though, I grant you, that he was more than likely the only one amused by its use.
