    Who won? ...Uh. Well at the end, only me, kateydidnt, and Ishtar were still drinking. The others gave up. ;)

    Yeah, I don't think anyone in particular won. It was just funny as heck.

    Apprarently, and I have this on good authority from someone we might be able to get join after he returns from his mission. there are geeks and nerds.
    Geeks are like Katey and Dana who got into a deep philosophical dicussion about the Death Star and its affect on gravitational pull, complete with mathematical equations.
    Nerds are the ones that get into the history, literature and music. So that would probably be everyone else that got singing other John Williams Music to the Star Wars story.

    Ergo: we need to find both the geeks and the nerds.

    Heh, I've never bothered trying to sort out who's a geek and who's a nerd, they're all the same to me. ;) Probably because I'm somewhat of both...

    Either way, yes, we need to find them all. :D

    Here's one: You know you're a Provo Fanforcer when you elect your new CR by a sustaining vote rather than a ballot.

    LOL!

    Guess what-- I was just surfing to see if the mass of the Death Star was listed anywhere. Unfortunately it isn't. Nor is the mass of the Millennium Falcon. Else I would have calculated the gravitational pull of the Death Star on the Falcon...I would guess that the death star only augments the natural gravitational pull with a tractor beam...

    I am, by Nolie's definitions, proud to be a self proclaimed geek AND nerd.

    Edit: And as an unashamed geek--I found the mass of a moon of Jupiter that is about the size of the Death Star II in diameter and described as not very dense--being very porous. Amalthea third moon closest to Jupiter is approx. 2.1e+18 kg. Roughly analogous to the Death Star II--I couldn't find anything clos to the mass of the Death Star I.

    I am insane.

    Lol I knew there was something about the wording of this originally that wasn't quite up to "outside of Provo Utah Usage".. but I just couldn't quite wrap my mind around it.

    At least we didn't release me with "a vote of thanks"...

    At least it wasn't a mass release. "We'd like all of you to stand up as your name is called,"

    *dies laughing*

    I didn't even realise until just now that it was a sustaining vote!

    And I am not a geek! I'm a nerd with geekish tendencies! :p


    Re: Kyp's eyes. The discussion went like this:

    Mia: "What colour are Kyp Durron's eyes?"

    Kevin: *slightly confused* "What colour did I describe them as?"

    I said, "Dark."

    Kevin: "That's it? Dark?"

    Me: "Yeah."

    MiaTiska: "The question [online] is whether they're brown or green."

    Kevin: *thinks* "I don't really know. Green works."

    So, uh, sort of straight from the creator's mouth, they're green.

    [face_laugh] to the sustaining vote and releasing. ;)

    And the tone in which Kevin asked was what made it so funny. "Well I don't know, what did I write it as??" Kind of like, duh?

    It was a sustaining vote. :) "We'd like to ask MiaTieska to take over the role of Chapter Representative. All those in favor, please manifest it." Pew aerobics. "Those opposed may manifest by the same sign..."

    Maybe it was sacrilegous.

    So Kevin forgot what he wrote it as? Sheesh. That makes me SOO much more confident in Pro-fic writer's knowledge. :rolleyes:

    When you feel like you have little direction in life, but you HAVE to make your friend a fanfic-writing Mal-quoting Firefly addict.

    You have ever understood one of the stories in MiaTieska's game just because you all follow those fandoms.
