And Ctrlhouse. And Doughy. Talking about anything at all.

Okay, that may be stretching the word deprived, I grant.

And really, where would this country's political discourse be if we didn't speculate about DNA-seeking lasers from space?

Okay, for this once, I guess. (Haven't watched this DV, so I can't judge whether it merited a response from you.) But it seems like I've read you saying this elsewhere, several times.

DNA-seeking lasers from space, attached to sharks.

Wow, what a trip from Meatballs to Groundhog Day. There's a (meta)physics joke, or riddle, for you.

There are sharks in space? Now it's not safe to go in the water or to colonize Mars. We're doomed!

No, no, no. Now we have a perfect excuse for invading space!

Absurd. I have a perfect middle ground solution. We send out risky colony ships, but we fill them with criminals and psychopaths. With any luck, we'll get the ultimate expression of American pride: Rednecks in Space.

Do you mean by "the one comment on the DV" the one you made in this thread or this one you made in another?

However, it appears from looking at that other thread that I must have been remembering other commenters piling on and thinking they were all comments by you, not to mention remembering, say, this and this, so I withdraw a portion of my accusation.

Meatballs? Groundhog Day? Ground Meat? Meat Loaf? There's a joke in there somewhere...

One of the best selling points of bhtv is that I can hear these wonks go off on tangents and speak off the cuff and throw ideas around that have not been studied vigorously by the speaker. Anyways, just my 2 cents.
Seconded.
