What kind of muffins do like? My favorite is blueberry. :3

Also, on a unrelated question: Mac or PC?

Take a look at your Mac. Now back to me. Back to Mac. Where’s your iPhone?

How does it feel to know you are the smexiest scientist?

Then who was my iPhone?!

I thought Forest was the smexiest scientist! At least, I think so. Dat hair. I just have the highest percentage of body fat in the lab.

I only have a Forest shrine in my heart. And in my twitpics, because he’s a nice looking boy.

Trashboat, everything about your profile reminds me of my first ever boyfriend.
And it’s kind of cool, I guess.

She’s in seattle I’m from spokane. Our love is realistic!

Edit: I recently looked at my top secret thread. I see how it is now. Looks like ann hiro had a big glass of haterade today.

Still afar, just not that far afar.

EDIT: Also, just because one loves from afar, that does not make such love unrealistic.

Um, honestly, this has happened before. But in real life.
The internet being the cause seems more normal?

Subtract the “kind of” and “I guess” parts.

I almost forgot, I have a actual question! You said you were in debate, that was a huge part of what I did in high school. I actually have my debate shirt on right now. Any way the question, what events did you do in debate?

Are you gonna be like all the other scientists and have an AMA thread and then never come back to post? cough forest cough

Or will you venture to the underground of the forums and reveal your sink fetishes?

#GPOY

I competed in Dual Interpretation of Literature and Oratory, mostly. And a bit of impromptu and student congress. And I was a pretty solid judge.

I’m here as long as there’s something to talk about, I’ll be here. I’d love to keep getting feedback on episodes.

I had another thread, but i think it died. It was a PAX advice thread.

YEAH! That is a very spiffy. I’m judging in the GSL right now. I’m a LD purist, and in speech I did HI and impromptu consistently (impromptu is way different in west washington). Did you compete in washington?

Edit: #GPOY! Gratuitous as in without any given reason, but this is for not. I was just subtly showing you that I was no basement lurker, as you might imply since you have implied I am like your first boyfriend and implied that my image was gpoy. (I apologize for sounding rude, but I am only attempting to keep my fighting chance alive).

SHit! I didn’t see this before.
I don’t regret joining the KYM community, but having a profile on forums kind of freaks me out sometimes (why I never use reddit.) It’s a weird cross between being entirely anonymous, how I like, and interacting with my IRL friends on tweetor and tumblr and stuff.

And you guys are weird. _

I was counting Nair, but apparently not counting someone else. List the four people you’re talking about.

Gangnam style episode

WHEN?

There’s been very serious discussion about how to do Gangnam Style. We love it so much that we want to do it right. That being said, probably not for at least another month or two.

BUT! We have some crazy cool new stuff coming out in the meantime.

Assassin’s Creed.
And I really like old games, or super simple games, so:
Tetris, Wario Ware, Super Mario Brothers, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine…

Points for having even played Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, let alone having it as a favorite.

How do you feel about the Homestuck episode and what are your thoughts on the backlash it caused?

I think I can safely speak for my fellow scientists when I say that we were apprehensive to tackle Homestuck in a KYM episode. But we moved forward with it because so many users requested it and because of the recent kickstarter news. It’s hard to summarize and educate on a work (and it’s cultural impact) in five-ish minutes. We did our best to research the meme, and drew the bulk of our information from the KYM article on Homestuck. We even had a guest writer help us out because she said she had more insight into the fandom. Despite our best efforts, the episode wasn’t that well received. But, we’re not discouraged and we think that our next episodes will be fun to watch.

Me personally, I preferred our futurama episode. ;)
