    Great, I’ve gone from looking leery at my eggs last week, to never being able to look at a can of Red Bull without dying of laughter. I almost hate you guys. 🙂

    To be fair to George Lucas ( which is something i am normally dead against ), the story about him believing in 2012 apocalypse are purely on the word of Seth Rogan who is likely bereft of irony, sarcasm, and humour. This is a man who produces Judd Apatow comedies, after all.

    Lucasfilm spokespersons have been adamant to stress that King George was only kidding and this is what happens when two monstrous, humorless nerds attempt to develop a sense of humour. I’m paraphrasing.

    If I bring along to QED my newly-purchased copy of the Book of Fantistic Facts, would it be possible to have my copy signed by the original edition of the Book of Fantastic Facts?

    Too bad you guys didn’t talk about how the bull semen is collected. (I’ll just say that it involves electrical prods in very bad places). 😉

    Er, isn’t Betelgeuse already a sun/star so it doesn’t need to turn into one. Maybe it’s just not a metal and that’s what I was thinking about.
