Anyway, these pictures are amazingly cool:

And incrediby well done. A Finnish guy is doing them as a hobby. The Hoth pictures are amazing, and I have to say this Indiana Jones pic, the first one on the page right now, simply blows my mind.

And if you're too lazy to check it out - they're "scenes" from movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones (but mainly Star Wars), done with those Lego figures.

German ICE trains have Wifi (though you have to pay some money for it. It's been some time since I last rode in one, so maybe it no longer costs anything).

Nah, those ICE trains don't smell of too much. Pretty impressive that they have Wifi though, only our metal trains have it in Das Vereinigte Königreich. (or is it Der?)

'das Vereinigte Königreich' in the nominative case, but 'dem' in the dative case if the last sentence were translated... then it would be "im Vereinigte Königreich" since in+dem=> im

Now, if you--









Yeah, even I bore myself.

I think I confused myself by thinking of the "in" in English rather than German.

That and the fact my German is appalling!

Anyway, here is a picture of an outdoor toaster.

Firefly is great.

And if you haven't seen it, so is Babylon 5. I bought all five series of it on DVD. (But only the two first got released in Sweden. I had to import the others from UK. Luckily I have no problem following it without Swedish subtitles.) It had the five-year story arc planned out from the beginning, which is pretty unique as far as I know.

That's already been asked and answered in this thread. You can use the search function if you don't want to re-read the whole thing.

I forgot about that. I was trying to throw everyone out, don't take it personally.

I feel oddly honored that my post was quoted.

Awww, that's the Thread™ from before it had grown up and found its place in this forum. How cute it was. (Though, in those early posts, mostly not.)

At some point, yes.

Of course, Trunksie wrote "quiz". May have said it out loud too, sure... But I doubt you would've heard it.

Of course I would have heard it. I have a script, you know, that tells me whenever someone here (or all around the Internet, for that matter) utters "quiz".
