I bet it was Brent Spiner -- though with a pseudonym that good, we can't really be sure. Heck, we can't even rule out Jonathan Frakes!

What about trading? Not that I particularly want to acquire any of your too-high-in-sentimental-value-to-part-with-anyway beer, but you must be able to barter for it, right? I wonder what defines "selling?"

I like the random not-photobomb background appearance of Adam Savage in your photobomb of Felicia Day. I can hardly imagine being in a place where your awesome photo of a cool celebrity person has more than one cool celebrity person randomly in the background. I can, however, imagine being in a place where awesome photos of cool non-celebrity persons have more than one other cool non-celebrity persons in the backgrounds -- because that happens all the time.

"Resulting Harmonic Emission" is the name of my Devo cover band.

My family is a lot like your wife in that we rock the scrabble board, and we are very non-competitive about it. The main rule is: awesomer word wins out. If I take a spot you need for an awesome word (like juxtapose), and mine's kind of lame (like hat), I will absolutely find another place to play. Sometimes we'll even trade tiles or turns to get someone to replay elsewhere. My wife is also not very competitive, but she is SUPER concerned about "fairness" and playing by the "rules," so none of this flies with her at all. Ah well, there's always Battleship for us. By the way, there's nothing like 6-player scrabble (three two-person teams) to get some awesome words. Having two brains on one set of tiles really helps out, and it's a lot more fun for someone who isn't quite as wordy.

I thought about that, too, but "guys" is the standard Californian gender-neutral pronoun (even though it technically isn't) and because Hollywood is in California, it is becoming nationally-standard, as well. I keep trying not to use it, but then I get stumped because I don't have any other good gender-neutral pronoun! And I'm certainly not going to use "y'all" like my wife (though I admit that it is the perfect gender neutral pronoun, being actually gender neutral, and being home-grown American).

Darn, Juleitc5 already beat me to mentioning the title of Caps For Sale, which I loved as a kid. Those crazy monkeys! I'm not sure what kind of hats those caps were, though... they certainly weren't bowlers, but they look a lot like berets, only not floppy. Maybe they're newsie caps, or just generic caps of some sort. Here's the Amazon link, you can decide for yourself: http://www.amazon.com/Caps-Sale-Peddler-Monkeys-Business/dp/0064431436 Oh, I also would like to say that I thought the "'Celestial Body Long' -- that's what she said" joke was quite deserving of the bell, perhaps even quintessential in terms of the kinds of jokes the bell is designed for. By the way, thanks for responding to comments (when you can) Mr. Wheaton (you are your father!). It's nice that we can actually interact with real internet celebrity-ness! :D Edit: for some reason, I wasn't seeing all the (hundreds) of previous posts, so now I look like an idiot for not also noticing the dozen other commenters who also pointed out Caps for Sale and its Amazon link. Oh well. :P

Don't forget the Iron Guard salute! Nothing saps your energy and will to do awesome like the common con-fluenza. Though I suppose that after the last two PAXs, you're likely immune to just about anything that hasn't been cooked up in a government lab! Scratch that: if you've been spending lots of time at G.D. lately, you're probably immune to those now, too! By the way, good job on your Eureka character not biting it during the episode (bad job on letting that info slip, though!). I think that puts you in the slight minority of guest-Ph.D.s who have survived, though I haven't done a study or anything.
