    There’s Dave, but I’ve almost vanished in this one…

    Great to meet you Greg

    I did not take over the bodies of all the SciBlings yet, but I am working on it! Puppet Masters unite!

    Very appropriate – there’s a little bit of Bora in all of us.

    For the record, I missed that photo as I was bringing the rented minivan back.

    Sorry. Love the blog, hate the injokes. Please translate for the rest of us: Bora-ed out and who is Munger?

    Munger is a blogger, Dave Munger being his full name, here:

    Bora-ed out refers to covering someone’s head with a picture of Coturnix. This guy:

    Bora (aka Coturnix) is our spiritual leader, as it were.

    I’m jealous! Even though I’m not anonymous (Javier Pazos, FCD) had I been there, I would have been honored to be Bora-ed out (or even Mungered out–since I read BOTH of his blogs).

    Thanks for Bora-ing me.

    That really was a lot of fun. I just wish the interwebs connection would have been better. I took a few pics for myself, but I’m afraid to post them because I don’t know everyone in them. Perhaps I’ll Bora them out, too.

    Thanks for Mungering me! That’ll teach me to ignore a missive from the overlords!

    If in doubt, Bora them out.

    Greg, does the typo “ScienceOnlien” reflect the tight budget for the meeting?

    The lexicon is the better for having “He’s been Bora-ed out” added to it.

    Maybe it’s LOL Kat talk.

    Wow! I am now a term! What’s next – a Wikipedia page!?

    Not just any term, Dr. Bora. It’s better than that. You’ve been verbed!

    Verbed? That sounds….thrilling, almost erotic 😉
