    Must agree, Ish... I don't even know who the Dud Bolt Crew is.

    for those intersted in a little more information:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_III_of_Bulgaria

    Although, he did not allow extradition of the Jew in his country, he did allow Jews to be taken from territories occupied by Bulgaria.

    His stand was bold, but the pressure was intolerable I'm sure.

    I don't know who he is, but we are supposed to appreciate his pit crew. :p

    Dud Bolt, not the king of Bulgaria...Although I'm sure if he had a pit crew, it would be awesome. ;)

    LOL, that's so cute.

    I always assumed the Dud Bolt Pit Crew had to do with those obnoxious pit droids in TPM.

    The school week is over for me! No class until Wednesday. Now off to work. :p

    I believe the Dud Bolt pit crew are the little bots that fixed the speeders and what not in TPM. They were kind of cute. :D

    The Dud Bolt Pit Crew refers to the droids in the pit crew for pod racer "Dud Bolt" in TPM.

    King Boris collaborated with Hitler and Bulgaria was an ally of the Axis. The Bulgarian government protected its Jewish citizens from deportation (which was a considerable feat), but non-Bulgarians met the same fate as many other Jews in Europe during the Holocaust.

    Very true, that is something we should never forget.

    And the social thread takes a serious turn... :p

    I have to write three fake prescriptions for pharm next week, one for an oral tablet, one for a liquid, and one for a parenteral drug. I think I'm going to write them for Star Wars characters. :D I'm going to give Anakin a scar cream for the parenteral, and I know I want to use Obi-Wan. I'm not sure who to have for the other character or what drugs to give them. [face_thinking] I hope I amuse my professor. :D

    Ahh, cool, I had always wondered about it. I quite like my pit droid icon. :)

    Ah. I was eyeing the handsome bearded Jedi at the pod race.

    Move to Chicago. Not only will you get cold winters, you'll get the lovely icy breeze that comes off the lake and forces you to run building-to-building style down a street.

    Not that I would know. I've never really experienced a Chicago winter. But I get to for the first time this year. [face_dancing]

    I would love to see the new social thread have the longest thread name EVER in Fan Fic. :D

    Maybe this time... just call it 'the social thread'. Nice, simple and to the point.

    I'm not so sure about that. Longest ever in Resource, maybe, but there've been some fics that have put so much in their title lines they wrapped around two or three times, and doing that for the social thread would probably result in a bloodbath.

    I vote for the shortest name ever--The Q-crew. Cryptic, etc.

    Hi Niobe. :) It's Saturday lunchtime here, and I just got back from the shops and bought a new blender :D Of course, I had to test it out right away, so I made myself a mango frappe. =P~ What is everyone up to?

    So, I was watching an episode of ER tonight and Ray was saying something that involved the word for a female dog. I won't repeat it here. The point is, for some reason, my computer froze at that moment and, until I could manually shut it down nearly a minute later, it was screaming that particular profanity over and over and over again at me." Kateydidnt was laughing hysterically, I was bright red and frantic.

    [face_laugh] Were you watching it online Ish, or did your computer have an identity crisis when it froze and suddenly believed it had become a Speak-n-Spell?

    It's far too early for me to be up, but I woke up a few hours ago and can't sleep. :(
