point of order:

I think that all of you (you with the jerking knees) who piped up to say "but that's not a BLIIIIIMP!!" should take a moment to realize that you just did the equivalent of complaining that I got Data's Starfleet rank wrong.

I hope you all think about what you've done.

PS, yes I know the difference, but BLIMP is a much better word.

    "Even saw the lights of the Goodyear blimp and it said 'JWZ's a pimp"

    I had this friend in 3rd grade who would flip the fuck out if you called a dirigible a blimp in his presence. I did it all the time, natch.

    When I saw your last post, I immediately thought of him. Then, as if by magic, he was reborn a dozen times in the comments.

    Hey, how about that. The Wikipedia article on Data is shorter than the one on Zeppelins.

    Come on Trekkies, you're letting the side down.

    Isn't "point of order" used for questions of procedure?

  8. Are you saying that people on your FL jumped at the glimmer of a chance at being condescending know-it-alls? THE DEVIL YOU SAY!

    I'm happy to say that even though I posted a lot of what I consider informative corrections and cool facts to what seemed like benign ignorance, I have no fucking clue what "Data's Starfleet rank" even means.

    I was going to rant, but all I am going to say is this:

    How can saying "blimp" be better than "Zeppelin"?

    "Blimp" = Goodyear and sporting events

    "Zeppelin" = Cool trans-Atlantic flights, bars in the sky, flying aircraft carriers, etc.

    A bucket of cocks (for choking) could easily be deployed via Zeppelin much easier and with likely more accuracy than a blimp.

    For the record, I do not have goggles on my forehead.

      "Zeppelin"= Houses of the holy, I II III IV, Stairway to Heaven etc.
      "Blimp"= Any vaguely cigar shaped aircraft that uses lighter than air gas as primary means of staying aloft. And yes that includes a "blimp" shaped Hot air balloon. also Rhymes with Pimp.
