Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

I keep telling people that I’ll play ‘Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock’ with them, but I get blank stares in return. How does everyone not know about this game? Learn more from the following video, and watch The Big Bang Theory!

What time is it?

I’m at Bryn Mawr today for a meetings, and while in one about engaging young alumnae I chatted with my old friend Carolyn Lloyd ’99:

Carolyn
When are you going home?
Me
Umm…
Carolyn
Well when are you going wherever? What time zone are you going to?
Me
Well… I usually just operate on Eastern Standard Time…
Carolyn
I think you should have your own time zone. Kimmie Standard Time!

I was too tired to have a decent exchange with Carolyn, but the KST concept is pretty funny… though with all of the time zone changes I go through, maybe it ought to be called Kimmie Non-Standard Time?

Mooninites Invade Boston

In Boston, some Aqua Teen Hunger Force light boards triggered bomb scares! Apparently they’ve been up in 10 cities for a few weeks, but only in Boston did they cause bridges to be shut down.

First, I’m sorry, but this seems ridiculous. Some one thought that light art, which to me wouldn’t seem any different than sticker or stencil graffiti (a la Andre the Giant or Radiohead or Space Invaders), might be an explosive device? Really?

Second, this has to become part of an upcoming ATHF episode. The Mooninites would demand it!

Third, looks like ATHF has gotten exactly what they wanted — a lot of publicity! The company they hired to create this campaign may get a lot of criticism, but they clearly did their job well!

The explosion shall be of extraordinary magnitude. Just hang on. -Ignignokt
