Every time the nerd comes out around here, someone gotta top it.  ;)

"Comes out"?  That implies that at some point, the nerd actually leaves.  :idiot2:  :ROFL: 




But of course. It is Our Way.

Indeed.  To do otherwise would be like failing to breathe.  It is in our blood.  8)

Wait, wait...  according to Warehouse 13 he was just a 'front' for all of his sister's great ideas!

You mean that wasn't a documentary series?!

I had never heard of Warehouse 13 until I was looking for an image of Well's to include with my post. I was also getting images of a woman I didn't recognize. I of course stopped to investigate and learned about Jaime Murray and Warehouse 13. Totally missed this program, mainly because I don't subscribed to cable, so no Syfy network. Looks interesting.

It was a fun show, similar in many ways to another SyFy staple, Eureka. I'm sure both are available on one or more of the streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu or Prime.

I used to enjoy Warehouse 13. It was quite tongue in cheek at times, and quite funny, but a lot of the stories were good.

Telenovella, anyone?  ;D

It's always great when a 25-year-old usenet gag turns into a hit show 😁

The episode where Pete and Mika get zapped into a Mexican telenovella as the main characters and suddenly start speaking Spanish naturally?

I don't remember that one, but I'm not totally sure I saw all the episodes. I may have to revisit, especial since there are a couple of very cute ladies in it :-)

I know this comes as a real surprise.

Ah, Bawb, you made me recall a notable flogger, Edward Pellew.
Later in his career, he was Admiral on the Indian ocean.

You can't get away from the fact that some people deserve a damn good thrashing!
