The Month headline read June for July

This time no typos, ha

The headline Month Date reads "June". Just a heads up

I didn't know we had an official Aphelion Moth!

I believe that having a typo in a post about a typo (or rather a parameter that wasn't updated) achieves true meta-irony.

And I never meta-irony I didn't like.

I'm calling P.E.T.A. (No! Not People Eating Tasty Animals, the other one.) Rick shouldn't have been typing on a moth to begin with. Besides, the font is so small I could barely read it.

It only processes nano words? It cannot handle anything more than one syllable?

Two subatomic particles are walking along a street with a neutron.
The electron says, "I'm an electron. What are you?"
The other one says, "I'm a proton."
The electron says, "Are you sure?"
The proton says, "Yes, I'm positive."

No Charge!

An electron walks into a bar and orders a drink. When he starts to pay the bartender says, "Don't worry about it. For you, no charge!"

Shouldn't it be "A neutron walks into a bar..."? Bill Wolfe will not tolerate this kind of laziness and lack of attention to detail!

Anyway, isn't it time to ruthlessly deconstruct the stories, features, and poetry instead of riffing on other posts?

Alternate Something?

Robert Moriyama stated with great speed and accuracy

A neutron...a neutron...would anyone believe I was referring to an alternate universe molecular structure where antimatter and matter work the opposite from one another or possibly where an electron is disguised as an neutron...???

Well if the current Star Trek movie can get away with it...???

No need to research when one can make up the science as they go along (He said waiting for the pounce.)

A little more riffing if you don't mind.

I saw my favorite Star Trek: The Next Generation episode last night titled, "The Nth Degree" where Barclay, a shy introspective engineer (Dwight Schultz) is transformed into a "superbeing" who interfaces with the ship's computer taking the enterprise into an uncharted realm of space.

The thing that stood out for me was that the more he reached his full potential, the more the crew kept him at arm's length. Also, the more his ego increased, the more he lost empathy with his crew mates.

He wouldn't have had that problem if he was commenting on Aphelion. Robert would have kept him in check! :)

"From now on, don't set me up on any more blind dates!" complained the electron.

"Why, what was wrong with the positron?" replied her friend the proton.

"No attraction at all," says the electron.

"Well good," says the proton. "I think he's more drawn to me, anyway."

"Hey Joe!" the bartender says. "Where's your buddy, Phil?"

"He got a job on that new lightspeed space ship," says Joe.

"And man, you should see how much weight he's gained!"

But by definition, the positron and electron were made for each other (same mass, opposite and equal charges)! Or do you favor the kind of match exemplified by Jaws and his tiny blonde love interest in "Moonraker" (the silly movie, not the dated but serious Bond novel)?

Okay Robert, I'm trying to figure-out whether you're using that silly old satire, or not.

Ya' really don't get it? Really?
(Think commentary on how clueless folks are when it comes to relationships. . .)


Here's the other version:


Suzy electron is talking to her pal, the proton.

"I had to file an Order Of Protection against my boyfriend, the positron," she says.

"Why? What did he do?"

"He told me if I get too close to him, he'll annihilate me!"

Is that any more humorous to ye non-nuke geeks?

But... but... how often do we see tales of women (and men) not only attracted to but obsessed by / addicted to someone who WILL "annihilate" them?

Geez, any Starfleet Academy graduate knows that particles of normal (to us) and antimatter will annihilate each other on contact -- except, of course, Lazarus and his antimatter twin, who will be wrestling in some interdimensional void forever. (Now there's a story that was bad science AND bad fiction...)

You remembered that! That scene has been buried in the recesses of my mind since the first time I saw it.

An interesting note, Lazarus (Robert Brown) not only fought with his antimatter twin (Robert Brown), but also fought with Aaron Stempel (Mark Lenard) on "Here Comes the Brides" around the same time frame, who eventually became Sarek of Vulcan, Spock's father.

Some people can't get along with anybody from any dimension!

Man o' man, I take a little hiatus and come back to find you guys calling each other such offensive names as "javascript emoticon". What has the world come to?

Oh, and since someone mentioned PETA. I believe I have come up with the best animal (species) preservation idea in the history of man's fiddling with nature: Put all endangered species on the menu of every top restaurant in North America. Wait, wait, bear with me here. If we want to eat them, then we'll have to encourage their breeding just like we do cows and chickens. And then, viola, no more endangered animals!

It's good to be back.
