As many of you know, I am a Scifi/Fantasy author (the professional kind). If you're curious as to what my writing is like, but would rather not shell out for a novel just yet, I've got a story up on this week's Escape Pod podcast. Check it out!

It's free!

I surprised it took me this long to find this:

Star Wars I-III: A Phantom Edit *1080p* - YouTube
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

It was probably Henry or Gordon that made him snap, eventually.

No I blame those troublesome trucks.  All their taunting and shunting must have broken him.

I guess because Horsjus was already taken? It's magically delicious!



I feel bad for the person that has to bottle it. I mean, what do you tell people that you do for a living? Bottle the essence of a magical being?

Magnificent. I'd buy it for the bottle alone.

Heh, funnier for you Anglophones, I bet. :P "Unikum" is occasionally used in Norwegian as a term for something that is unique, unsurprisingly.

Only time I have heard the term "Unicum" was in World of Tanks.  It's how the community referred to the top players; kind of a play on "unicorn" I think.

Wouldn't both be sexually derogative?

I would sue.

It's just Latin for "something of which there is only one".

Also, I get the joke, just chiming in in case anyone was confused. :P

In one of the game I am presently playing (EVE Online) making jokes about unicorns would have you declared war upon, by extremely nasty gentlemen.
