Today's XKCD:mouseover text: Fans eagerly await 2015's 'Space Fights: Power Gets Up', although most think 1999's 'Space Fights: The Scary Ghost' didn't live up to the hype.
Yesterday I was at lunch with three colleagues, whom I will call Alice, Bob and Carla.
Alice: What about Star Wars? My kid is into it. Bob: No, but I always liked Star Trek, especially the series with Picard Me: The Next Generation? Bob: That's it. Alice: We don't know what to do for the kid, about the last three movies. Me: Oh, forget those. To me, this is the order in which you should show your kids the Star Wars movies: Ep. IV, Ep. V, Ep. VI and... you're done. Alice: Are you going to the new one? Me: Of course! If not the midnight show that Thursday night, surely for one of the early evening shows that Friday! Alice: Is your wife going to go with you? Me: Definitely! Alice: ...Willingly? Me: (laughing) Yes, yes. She's every bit as geeky as I am. Carla: I don't know much about Star Trek, but Star Wars I am familiar with. Luke and Laura, right?
When we recovered some composure, we reminded Carla that Luke and Laura was the "Wedding of the Century" on General Hospital.
