From this ultra reliable source comes the first vestiges of hope that warp speed may actually be possible and/or achievable. Of course, it could be from a trekkie just dreaming up things and making them sound plausible (quantum physisist? of course he is a trekkie). But then, here is another more reliable article stating the same thing in more fascinating detail.

In other news, I met this 7 year old kid son of some musicians from the ensemble called Strata (they played a show at Bishop's yesterday and will play another with students on Sunday at 2) who was quite taken by my beard of knowledge and decided to construct his own robotic beard (aka the Kenneth Extension) with nothing but paperclips and elastic bands. This was all kinds of cool and also very funny to see this little man run up to me, point to my face and shout, "BEARD OF KNOWLEDGE!" and either run away or right into me, trying to take me down under the misguided assumption that it was possible. It is unfortunate that I didn't get a picture of him proudly wearing his homemade prosthetic, or making his dad try it on to see how he would look with a beard.

I think it looks rather klingon.

Here is something you should see if you want an answer to the question that has plagued us (or at least me) for the last 10 minutes: Can counting to infinity ... twice really help Chuck Norris if he were to be up against Gandalf the Grey and White at the same time?

Yeti Crabs. Interesting.

I am a Windows person. I don't like Macs. They don't work for me. I like the customizability of Windows and the fact that everything works for me when I use it and when it doesn't it is because of something stupid I did (mishaps rarely happen) and even then it is always relatively simple to fix. Anyways, the point of this post is to show you some nice videos found on Google Video:

1 - Why Macs Suck

2 - Why Macs Suck (a different one)

3 - A Mac User

4 - I Switched To Mac (I love using that view, used to do it with the film company)

How interesting this victimless meat concept is, and a little scary also. I was just perusing the internet and its wealth of information and it stumbled upon myself.

I tried to run but I
could not seem to flee
from the cage
of this word stage.
The verbs have taken me!

So, I'm at the computer lab just waiting around until practice and reading some awesome web comics when I get an instant message from Ilana asking me if I'm at home:

Chilana says:
You're home?
Sam says:
Sam says:
the lab
Chilana says:
Which lab? I'm in the lab!
Sam says:
hamilton one
Sam says:
right behind you [as he looks behind him and spots her instantly]
Chilana says:
I have absolutely no idea where that is. [she said as she scanned the room as I watched]

At this point I walked the 7 feet over to her and tapped her on the shoulder and she let out a yelp. I turned around, walked back to my seat and typed:

Sam says:
right here
Chilana says:
Chilana says:
I can't believe I didn't notice you.

Neither did I. After one whole year, she doesn't recognize my right side. I guess I have started to look like the typical Bishop's student.

"I'm sure most of you have already heard about this in one form or another, but I will take this time to make sure that everyone does. Alice Through the Looking Glass, directed by Michael Kennard, will be presented tonight and every night this week at Studio theatre at 8pm for the shockingly reasonable rate of 10$. Be there, or I'll hunt you down and eat your liver."

There you have it in The Bruce's own words. Personally, I'd rather not have my liver eaten, so I will go see the play on Saturday night. Anyone who would like to join Ilana and I are welcome to notify me in the comments. Also, there will be a concert on Friday night that Dr. Awesome/Captain Zoom/Bazooka Chris and I will be attending featuring the Pocket Dwellers. They are up for a Juno for best new band this year even though their first album came out in 2000. Can anyone explain that to me in simple, small words? Tickets for this one are $5 if you buy in advance from the scalpers around campus or Dolittles or $10 if you are supremely lazy and/or coerced into going and just show up at the door.

I present to you lucky readers of The Fangorious Leap the best quote you will ever find in a finance lecture. I am not able to make something like this up. Ok, so I am definitely able to, but I didn't this time.

"Oh no, I am so foolish. I was pressing the power button [of the remote control for the projector] instead of the one for the supercharged laser. I have to be careful not to burn the screen or cut the wall behind it. Not for our sake, for the people in the next class. 'Oh no! The aliens are coming!' 'No, no, it is just the finance class next door.' So, what happens if we add taxes back into the equation?"

It was the best moment in finance class history.
