Thursday, February 16, 2012


Over Christmas, Dave hooked me up with Futurama! It has become my favorite show! We killed the first four seaons in about three days! Here are some of great quotes. Of course, stolen from the Internet....

"Well, now everything is back as it was. And if history doesn't care that our degenerate friend Fry is his own grandfather, then who are we to judge?"
-Professor Farnsworth

"Full price for gum?! That dog won't hunt, Monsignor."

"My old life wasn't as glamorous as my webpage made it look."

"With my last breath, I curse Zoidberg!"
-Professor Farnsworth

Bender: Fry! Stop interfering with history! I don't wanna have to memorise a lot of new kings when I get back!
Fry: I had no choice. I was about to not exist. I could feel myself fading away, like Greg Kinnear.

"But that's not why people watch TV. Clever things make people feel stupid, and unexpected things make them feel scared."

Bender: Don't worry guys, I'll never be too good or too evil again. From now on, I'll just be me.
Leela: Uh, do you think you could be just little less evil than that?

"As the candy hearts poured into the fiery quasar, a wonderous thing happened, why not? They vaporized into a mystical love radiation that spread across the universe, destroying many, many planets - including two gangster planets and a cowboy world. But one planet was exactly the right
distance to see the romantic rays, but not be destroyed by them - Earth. So all over the world, couples stood together in joy. And me, Zoidberg! And no one could've been happier, unless it would've also been Valentine's Day. What? It was? Hooray!"

"Why can't she just drink herself happy like everyone else?"

"Well, in those days Mars was just a dreary uninhabitable wasteland... much like Utah. But unlike Utah, it was eventually made livable..."
-Professor Farnsworth

Leela: That's not true. The first robot president won by exactly one vote.
Bender: Ah, yes! John Quincy Adding Machine. He struck a chord with the voters when he pledged not to go on a killing spree.
Professor: But, like most politicians he promised more than he could deliver.

"That's it! I'm gonna deliver a gift of my boot up Santa's chimney!"

"Bodies are for hookers and fat people!"

"I'm gonna drink 'til I reboot!"

"Fry, he opened up relations with China. He doesn't want to hear about your ding-dong."

"1947 can kiss my shiny metal..."

"Aw, he looks like a little, insane, drunken angel."

Gore: I'm Al Gore. And these are my Vice Presidential Action Rangers! A group of top nerds who's sole duty it is to prevent disruptions in the space-time continuum.
Fry: I thought your duty was to cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate.
Gore: That, and protect the space-time continuum. Read the Constitution.

"Now, be careful, Fry. And if you kill anyone, make sure to eat their heart to gain their courage. Their rich, tasty courage."
-Professor Farnsworth

"Is he dumb or just ugly?"

"Leave him alone! It's not his fault he's an unstoppbale killing machine."

Fry: Heya, Bender, what are we doing in this bad neighborhood?
Bender: Shut up, square!

"Pine trees have been extinct for eight hundred years, Fry. Gone the way of the poodle and your primitive notions of modesty."
-Professor Farnsworth

"I'm the first one to work, a new low."

"And once I'm swept into office, I'll sell our children's organs to zoos for meat, and go into people's houses and wreck up the place!"

"Surrender your mysteries to Zoidberg!"

"Sold your body?! Oh, Bender, I've been down that road. I know it's glamorous and the parties are great, but you'll end up spending every dollar you make on jewelry and skintight pants."
-Professor Farnsworth

Hermes: And as a further cost cutting measure, I have eliminted the salt-water cooler.
Zoidberg: This is a witch hunt!

"The point is, by my standards, I won fair and square."

"If only he had joined a mainstream religion like Oprahism or Voodoo."
-Professor Farnsworth

Robot Devil: The Fairness In Hell Act of 2275 requires me to inform you that if you can best me in a fiddle contest, you win back Bender's soul. As well as a solid gold fiddle. Fry: Wouldn't a solid gold fiddle weigh hundreds of pounds and sound crummy?
Robot Devil: Well it's mostly for show.
Leela (whispering): Do you know how to play the fiddle?
Fry (whispering): No, do you?
Leela: (whispering) No but I used to play the drums. They're sorta
similar. (talking) What happens if we lose?
Robot Devil: You'll only win a smaller silver fiddle. Also I guess I'll kill one of you. Uh, him.

Amy: Only weirdos and mutants join third parties.
Zoidberg: Really? I better keep an eye out at the next meeting.

"This wangs chung!"

Fry: "But, but, won't that change history?"
Professor: "Oooh... A lesson in not changing history from Mr. I'm-my-own-grandpa! Let's get the hell out of here already. Screw history!"

Leela: Impressive. They're busting mad rhymes with an 80% success rate.
Bender: I believe that qualifies as ill. At least from a technical standpoint.

"Choke on that, causality!"
-Professor Farnsworth

Fry: Um, I have a question. What if Bender was really giant?
Leela: You idiot, we already saw that.
Fry: I know, I liked it. I wanna see it again.
Farnsworth: We're not seeing it again, ask something less stupid.

"Nixon with charisma? My God! I can rule the universe!"

Farnsworth: I'm sorry Fry but the anchovy has been extinct since the 2200's.
Fry: What??
Farnsworth: Oh my yes. Fished to death. Just about the time your people arrived on Earth wasn't it Zoidberg?
Zoidberg: I'm not on trial here.

"Quit squawking, fleshwad!"

Fry: Who was that guy?
Bender: Your mama! Now shut up and drag me to work!

"Morbo congratulates our gargantuan cyborg president. May death come quickly to his enemies!"

"Bender! Quit giving the slave drivers pointers."

Fry: And I can deliver them! Billions and billions in one night.
Santa: Bah! No human could do all that.
Fry: Evil Knievel could!
Santa: Nuh-uh!

"I wanna enlist. My friends always die if I'm not there to save them."

"This concept of 'wuv' confuses and infuriates us!"

Amy: Ooh, nice shoes.
Lisa: Thanks!
Amy: Do they come in women's sizes?

"Bender, you should be more ashamed of yourself than usual!"

"You've succeeded in convincing me life is worth living. By showing how bad my funeral will suck!"

Leela: Have you seen today's news?
Bender: 'High school gym renovations on schedule.' What a load!
Leela: No! Over here! 'Flying saucer captured.'
Bender: That's no flying saucer! That's my ass!

"Wow! Check out that guy! He makes Speedy Gonzales look like regular Gonzales."

"That bloodthirsty cadaver junkie can't touch us so long as we're not stupid enough to leave this building."
-Professor Farnsworth

Santa: Bender can't be Santa! He wasn't built to Yuletide specifications.
Bender: Oh yeah? Well I wasn't built to steal Leela's purse either! But that didn't stop me.

"'Blackmail' is such an ugly word. I prefer 'extortion.' The 'X' makes it sound cool."

"Something's wrong. Murder isn't working and that's all we're good at."
-Nichelle Nichols

Fry: Cool! So there's an infinite number of parallel universes?
Professor Farnsworth: No, just the two.

Amy: Oh no, someone you know must have died!
Bender: I hope it was one of my enemies, those guys suck!

"Up wherever your species traditionally crams things!"

"I never thought it would end this way, gunned down by Santa Claus."

Professor Farnsworth: It's a little experiment that might win me the Nobel Prize.
Leela: In which field?
Professor Farnsworth: I don't care -- they all pay the same.

"I like having her around because she's the same blood type as me."
-Professor Farnsworth

God: Bender, being God isn't easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you; and if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money!
God: Yes, if you make it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Hermes: He'll be as strong as Hercules and as flexible as Gumby, combined!
Dr. Zoidberg: Gumbercles? I love that guy!

"All civilization is just an effort to impress the opposite sex."

Last Minute Trip to the Super Bowl

I was wondering what it would take to schedule a last minute trip to the Super Bowl.

Airfare between Indianapolis and Oklahoma City, which normally cost $323 each way, will set you back about $2,560 round trip.

The Best Inn (normally $55 per night) is going for $898.99 a night. The Days Hotel, near the airport, which usually goes for $47 a night, has two night deals for the discounted price of $1,840 for two nights.

Tickets are running for $2100 in the upper nosebleed section. However, if you want a luxury suite, plan on spending $515,484.

Need a rental car, the Hertz full-size sedan that normally rents for $102.42 for the weekend, will set you back $449.89 for the same period.

The parking lot across from the stadium, which usually charges $60 for all day Sunday, is charging $499 for the day.

All in all, not a cheap trip....think I'll just watch it from home...

Congrats Coach Gundy

Congratulations to Oklahoma State's Coach Mike Gundy on being named the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year! He has been a incredible influence on the team. He has turned the program around and made them a college football force to be respected! He truly deserves the honor and I'm proud to have him as a coach in the State! Way to go Mike!

Pizza Pizza on the Wall

The United States Congress can surely piss its contingency off. Failure to get anything accomplished, constant bickering and back stabbing, but declaring pizza a vegetable? This has been on the news a bit the last week or so.

However, that's not really what Congress did. They passed the agriculture appropriations bill and in doing so they made it easier to count pizza sauce as a serving of vegetables. They never said pizza was a vegetable. The discussion is really about tomato paste.

Tomato paste gets special treatment under school lunch rules. Just 1/8 of a cup is considered the same as a half a cup of vegetables. The regulation that was almost changed would force a volume of fruits or vegetables to be counted as its actual serving size. Congress, however, blocked this changes, and tomato paste gets to keep its extra credit.

There is some merit to giving tomato paste the extra credit. One-eighth cup of tomato paste is quite similar in nutritional value to one cup of apples.

So, anyway, Congress did not declare pizza a vegetable!

Monkeys Just Flew Out Of My Ass

There is a though problem called the Million Monkey's Problem.

If you have an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of keyboards, will they eventually write Shakespeare?

So, a couple of computer guys, started thinking and programming a parallel process to figure out if it might really happen. The would breed thousands of generations of hypothetical monkeys a second and then choose which ones would be allow to perpetuate the species based solely on their ability to write Shakespeare.

Apparently, it takes about 80,000 generations of monkeys at thousands of monkey generations a second (there's 200 monkeys per generation) to get the opening line of Hamlet. So that's ~16,000,000 monkeys just to get this much text. As they say, that's a lot of monkeys.

If you wanna read all the technical stuff, you can find it here.

By the way, no monkeys were harmed in the experiment.

Cheer Like A Champion

Champion is defined as one who has beaten all other competitors. I like to think it goes one step farther. To me a champion is more than just a victor. champion should also set an example and always be gracious in both victory and defeat.

Cheer like a Champion. These words are printed above each entrance to the Oklahoma University football stadium seating area. After the way I have seen OU fans behave this past weekend, I must say I am a bit ashamed of my favorite college team. From the gloating over Oklahoma State University's Friday night loss which was all over Facebook, to all the trash talk from people out and about that evening. Perhaps I am asking to much from my champions.

The online whining from all the Sooner fans over there loss Saturday is even more disturbing. So much for being gracious in defeat. I didn't hear one bad thing from a single OSU fan, which I am except when they are playing OU). All I heard from them was “Well, we will try again next year.” Far more gracious if you asked me. No trash talking and support for their team at the same time.

Top Chef, Episode 1

I finally finished watching the first episode this season's Top Chef. This year in Texas has a lot of promise! I like how they started with 29 contestants and someone of them went home right off the bat! The least of which was Tyler Stone!

It's way to early to make predictions at this point.

Emeril bugs me a little bit, but what the Hell....

I don't have a ton to say about it at this stage. Anyway, all I can really say is I'm looking forward to next week's show....

Thunder doesn't roll....

Last night was to have been to opening game of the Thunder. OKC's NBA team. Unfortunately due to failed negotiations between the owners and the players, there are not round ball games.
Not only am I sad for me, as I've become a fairly avid BB fan, I am equally if not more said for all the lost income for people and businesses in Bricktown. On average almost 14,500 people attend a Thunder game. Not to include the people who go downtown just for the energy that surrounds a game. That's a lot of drinks and hot wings, etc.
Not playing has a significant economic impact on the area!
Come one players and owners, let's get it together and play ball!

Once more....

Well, I'm back. Not that anyone will notice, I don't think anyone reads this anymore, not that I ever had that big of an audience anyway. I haven't updated my blog in about 6 months. But, I'm feeling kinda sickly, can't sleep and thought I would just do the stream of conscience thing.

It's been a great year. Traveled a lot and had a great time. Been to Dallas, Chicago (twice), New York city, all with my best
friend. Maybe in the near future I'll post some of the pictures.

I'm going to try to at least post once a week.

Like I said, not feeling well. David, Matt, Justin and I went to Chicago for a long weekend this past weekend and we all caught something....don't know if we should blame it on the airplane or the subway/train. Either way, I can't seem to shake the crud in my chest. If I'm not better tomorrow morning, think I may go see the doctor (again).

Since my last post, I've added a new member to my family. I have a new dog. Maggie (my Miniature Schnauzer) and I adopted a Beagle named Alice. Shes uber sweet and very affectionate.

All in all this has been a pretty great year, however, I can't seem to make happy work. I'm not espically unhappy, just not happy. I want to be happy, I really do. I'm not depressed, just a little sad on occasion....not everyday or all the time, usually just in the evenings when I'm sitting at home.

I've read some pretty good books this year. I really like Erik Larson, he's written some awesome books. If all history was written like this, I would probably have been a history major....

Well, I don't know what else to say....I think my fever is going up....I'm cold. So, I'll go to bed and try to get some sleep....hopefully I'll sleep soon...

Good night.
