I just did a Google Image search.

The first hundred results were all from Pinterest, and not one of them was what I was searching for.

Why hasn't Google banned them for SEO spam?

Wait, are you burning them, or making them push a wheel or something?

Yeah, but neither do the regular kind of corpses.

@Taweret I really like the idea that the holodeck can do black and white.

I wonder if it can do other forms of non-realistic rendering.

Can it do anime?

What happened to wacky cross-over episodes?

Have they stopped happening? Or am I just too out of touch to notice them?

Those are fantastic.

The pull quote on 'Sock it to me Zombie!' is amazing.

@apLundell Oh, gads, my brother-in-law is a bit conspiracy-minded and he's said some things that make us think he's maybe bought the Titanic-swap conspiracy.

My mother, a clinical psychologist, has kept a book she needed for her master's, wholly because the author was Edwin Boring, and so the spine reads, 'A History Of Experimental Psychology - Boring'.

Oh absolutely. A handbook for mistresses. A quiz book to find out if you're transhuman/posthuman. Lots of pulp novels with covers/titles I like.

So does anybody else have books on your bookshelves that you keep because it's funny even though you have no intention of ever reading them?

Here's my favorite book I'll never read. It's a conspiracy theory about how the Titanic didn't actually sink. I think it cost me $1.

@RexfordGTugwell Oh yeah!

I've got his "Beginning Operations" sitting on my bookshelf, but I've never read it because I hate hospital stories.

Really that should have been a clue that I wouldn't like "Mercy Point".

@Taweret I gotta get around to reading the rest of those comics.

They're so good I don't want to rush through them.

(For certain values of "good.")

The best movie was the original. I know that. We ALL know that.

BUT the best individual Ghostbuster was Holtzman. To not bring her back for the next movie is a big miss.

I'm not sure why I thought it would be a good idea to track down copies "Mercy Point".

It's just a hospital drama in space, and I hate hospital dramas.

"Get her to zero-g surgery! STAT!"

I wonder if they ever explain why they built an entire space station that's just a hospital.

Awww.... Looks like Amazon's algorithms have detected that hobbyists are buying these.

They were $7 when I bought one.
