Just imagining Pat Sajak or Vanna White in a trench coat.  Muttering to Ernie: "Hey bud.  Howd'ja like to buy a vowel?"

"A vowel?"

"Shhhhh!"

"A vowel?"

Jack Harkness could have screamed.

So.  Close.

Just one more good hit would take out the Dalek mothership.  Though it was calling for help, it was practically defenseless, screens down, interceptors used up.  But Jack's ship was hardly in better shape.  His only functional weapon system was the mass driver, and he'd thrown everything that was loose, everything that he could pry loose.  Food and utensils, loose change, then clothing.  His briefs had made a nice dent in the Daleks' hull, but hadn't penetrated.

If only there was something else here, maybe 75 kilograms, that I could stuff into the launch tube, he thought, as his reflection in the viewport caught his eye.

And that, O Best Beloved, is how the Face Of Bo came to be.

Having seen a few minutes of the recent Conan flick, I am now pondering the merits of the original version by Ron Howard.

I do kind of wonder why a "meal replacement" liquid which is full of artificial thingies (and modified natural substances) is prominently labeled "No Artificial Flavours".

Marketing, I suppose.  I didn't think to look that closely at the competing products' packaging.

"If You're Happy And You Know It" may not work well in a future multi-species kindergarten where some of the children may not have hands.  Or emotions, for that matter.  Or self-awareness.

Hannelore's comment in panel 3 looks like it's merely English text shown in a very weird font.  I'm not sure if I've got the brain cells to try to parse it at the moment — the glyphs are twisty and the text sample size is small.  The first character is probably an 'A' or an 'I', of course.  I think that the fourth word has an apostrophe (sandwiched between two identical letters, which should be a strong clue), the second may have a hyphen, and the comment ends with an exclamation mark.

 "Hannelore Fhtagn" indeed.

Though I must admit that I find the suggestion of breasts slightly disturbing.

Cordwainer Smith's story "On the Gem Planet" features a humongous green ruby, intended for use in a gigantic laser weapon.

It should not be confused with a scarlet emerald.  If nothing else, because it's intended for a laser weapon, it is almost certainly not many-fauceted.

Just heard on CBC Radio: Jann Arden announced that her special guest on next week's show will be Jackie Collins, "who has sold more than 400 million books world-wide... wholly crap."

And I thought, "Well, mostly crap.  But is that a nice thing to say about your guest?"

I Am A: Lawful Good Elf Wizard (5th Level)


Ability Scores:

Strength-12

Dexterity-10

Constitution-14

Intelligence-17

Wisdom-15

Charisma-11


Alignment:
Lawful Good A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment because it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.


Race:
Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.


Class:
Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

What would you call it, anyway?  SPORN?

The Eye of Rassilon
 

This ancient Gallifreyan artifact appears to be a fine faceted citrine, about an inch and a half across, and has a faint indeterminate magical aura.  If an adventurer attempts to look through it, s/he may (10%) see a brief image of the past or the future, or from an alternate past, present, or future -- and at the same time will receive a Suggestion to place the gem into his/her own eye socket to allow better divination.

If the Eye is placed into an empty eye socket, it will instantly graft itself to the skull and cannot be removed without the death of its owner.  The Eye grants the following special abilities:
  • Sense nearby disturbances in the wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey continuum
  • Tongues (as the 4th-level Cleric spell, not the 2nd-level Courtesan)
  • Regeneration (Gallifreyan)
  • ...
