I can't remember the "parody" rules, but I'm still thinking that Paramount is fastidious about their copyrights. Someone's going to get spanked...and not in a pornographic way. Or am I imagining that those clips are not "borrowed" from copyrighted footage?

Every time I read you saying something like OMG, I can't believe I get to do all of this and make a living at the same time, I think of my favorite quote from "Broadcast News": Tom Grunnick: What do you do when your real life exceeds your dreams? Aaron Altman: Keep it to yourself. ETA: You rock, Wil. I meant it in a good way.

I got to visit a little bit with Brent Spiner and Jonathan Frakes, who both asked me why I wasn't doing their panel with them. So I'm probably opening a can of worms, and feel free to ignore it, but why aren't you? I think you'd add a great dimension to the panel, and I'm sure the rifts that you guys would play off of each other would make it worth the hassle of crawling in there with several thousand of my closest friends. It's your life, of course, but I'd pay money to see that.

I took it as you meant it. If you're going to be a slacker through school, don't expect someone to pay you well when you get out into the Real World.

Oh! There you are! I could see Beth, but not the people around her. (smile)

Vancouver is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in North America, in my opinion. It's been too long since I was there.

I worked the morning shift airing NPR's "Morning Edition" at KGOU, the University of Oklahoma's college radio station. I then went back to the dorms and crashed, thinking it was "just another shuttle launch". My roommate told me what happened when I woke up. === I got to see Atlantis' launch last year in person. There's only two left...if you've never seen a shuttle launch in person, you really should.

The post-launch maneuvers are dependent upon the target destination. They are updated until the T-31 second call, after which the Shuttle computers make the call. (A delay in launch can cause an adjustment to the maneuvers, though fine-tuning is always done on approach to the target.) That roll procedure was necessary because of the "current" (at time of launch) position of the ISS.

I was thinking how I missed the days when my employer couldn't find me because I was on a plane. Soon we won't be able to get away from cell phone conversations on the plane either. I'm a techno-geek, but sometimes it goes a little too far.

I'm not Wil, but I'll take a shot at it. Sorry for the length. Turbulence is caused by disruptions in the air through which the plane is flying. Lots of things cause those disruptions...the heat from the ground causes air to rise, weather fronts push air in different directions, and even a plane passing in front of yours causes a disruption. Look outside the window when you fly and notice how the wings flex. That's on purpose. If they were solid and static, the whole plane would have to take the turbulence. The wings serve to absorb the energy. That is also true of many of the other components of the plane that you can't see. Again, this is a Good Thing. We used to lose aircraft in thunderstorms all the time. Now we know better. Aircraft (and controllers on the ground) are equipped with radar systems that allow them to miss most (if not all) of the weather. Pilots are better trained to avoid it. And pilots talk to each other. If the one ahead of you is encountering turbulence, you hear about it. You can try to work around it...choose another altitude, or even another route of flight. I've flown for most of my life in all sorts of planes, from the single-engine prop jobs to the four-engine jumbo jets. I still get anxious when I fly. (If it really bothers you, anti-anxiety medications help.) But I also know that turbulence is temporary and you just have to "ride it out". It is still one of the safest forms of transportation. Hope this helped. My apologies to everyone else.

I still have all my copies of RFB, and I'd love to hear more of those if you want to do them. Our musical styles differ, so you expose me to things that I wouldn't normally hear. (And then I have to go and buy them, so damn you and your musical style...smile.)

My favorite line from this episode is actually from the gag reel: "U.S.S. Stargazer...Wh...For God Sakes, Mary! They built this thing in Bedford Falls!"

No worries. Still good stuff.

If you have access to TNT's web site (http://www.tnt.tv), all of the Season 1 episodes are there. For free. That's where I watched them. Enjoy.

I figured it was a SoCal thing...you do *everything* there while driving. At least he wasn't talking on the cell, applying makeup, shoving a burger down his throat, or *checking his Tweets*.
