You know, all my life I hoped this would happen. Ever since childhood I expected it. I knew these creatures were alive somewhere, but I had no proof, scientific proof, and I had to keep it to myself, or my colleagues would have all laughed at me. -- Dr. Sampson, The Giant Behemoth
Wanyas has often proclaimed how he wants a president who's smart and who's "elite" because don't you want the guy running the country to be better than everyone else?
On Monday, DailyShow's guest Tim Robbins pretty much made the exact same statement.
Tuesday over IM, i told fnord about this story i read on the Oddly Enoughs about a boutique in Mexico that has started selling bulletproof clothing due to the high crime rate.
The story appeared on Tuesday's Colbert Report as part of the #3 threat on the Threatdown segment.
While watching the debate Tuesday night, fnord felt an important question the candidates haven't answered is "Where are our goddamn jetpacks?". It is 2008, afterall. We should have flying cars and be living on space stations by now.
Also, on Tuesday's Colbert Report, Colbert asked his guest about when he thinks we'll have jetpacks.
These are just recent examples. It happens all the time. We'll talk about something and then next thing you know, Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert is mentioning it on their show. Sure, the Oddly Enoughs thing you can write off to it being the writers' job to find weird news. But jetpacks?? What the hell are the odds (never tell me the odds)?
Hey, if they want to hang out with us, we'd be more than happy to do that. They don't need to covertly listen in. We can be friends.
