The Astrodome one....all I could see was the Sydney Harbour Bridge. And I was terribly confused as to why you thought it was in Texas. Hmmmmmm. I should not play pictionary.

For some more science podcast goodness there is a regular radio show also on the ABC in Australia by a guy called Dr Karl. You might like it... http://www.abc.net.au/science/k2/stn/podcast.htm

I *LOVE* that you like my photo. This is the bit where I geek out and get all excited because *Wil Wheaton actually likes my photo*. Woot! I stacked you between two space biographies on purpose. I thought you might feel at home there.... Both your book and the Gene Kranz's are autographed, and if you ever come to Australia I hope I can get one autographed in person. Now back to my boring work day. Thanks for making me smile today! :)

Thanks for the Radio National link Wil. I always knew there was good radio on my doorstep, but until now I didn't bother to listen to it. iTunes Australia has a free podcast of The Night Air which I am now subscribed to, but no back issues. I am on the lookout now....someone in iTunes suggested one called 'Stars', and anything with a name like that will always get my attention. Now if only I could find it.

Yeah. I missed it again. I always do, because the date here in Australia is 14.3 not 3.14 - Damnit! Perhaps I shall set a phone alarm for 3.14 next year to remind me.

Oh Man. 8 Days later and I will actually BE in your country. And even in that state, although in SF. But I totally would have stopping sightseeing to fly down there for this. Darnit. Please please please sign some hardcovers and leave them for future sale just like you did with JAG. That's how I got my copy....a signed copy of THDOOL would expand the set.

Apologies if someone has already mentioned this, but 44 comments was just too many to read. The submarine game you mentioned, would that be 'Seaquest'? I have an old atari 2600 that I bought off ebay a few years back and one of my fave games to play is Seaquest. Dive down, rescue scuba divers, avoid the enemy subs and the sharks, resurface and deliver the divers. I can play it for hours. Must go find my Atari....now I want to play.

I took my mum to meet Mr Takei in Sydney a few years ago. He was an absolute gentleman. Signed her book, my picture and posed for several photos with mum too, all with a big smile on his face. Needless to say my mum was totally in awe as was I. He is just a fabulous and kind human being. Wish there were more like him out there.

Love the shirt....it rocks. When it comes to threadless I must admit I have been waiting for a $10 license to shop. But if I click that link and earn you shiny gold rocks to buy more shirts with, will your wife not hunt me down for adding to your mountains of cool shirts. Also....I finally found out what PAX stood for. Until now I kept thinking back to 'Serenity' and the disease that created the Reevers. I think I watch too much TV.

Wil, That last bit about one of your top five moments.....that was amazing. And so very very cool. That's one hell of a photo to finish and she must have saved the best one for last.

I'm with head.fairy. I'm all the way down here in oz...and not only am I now a day late (or 2 if you count that its now after midnight into the 16th) but the Aussie date system is the same....and therefore totally bites. No Pie day for us. However while I was uploading my latest 365 days portrait to Flickr I realised some guy had posted his own tribute http://flickr.com/photos/buildscharacter/422010786/in/pool-365days/ which would have gone over my head had I not read your blog 5 minutes previous. cheers. http://flickr.com/photos/out-of-my-mind/

So does that High Five come with a 'The Todd' thwack sound effect or is it just a standard high five? I am so glad High Fives are back. :)
