Respectful Insolence

Now there’s a real toaster!

Those who are Battlestar Galactica fans, as I am, know that the disparaging slang humans in the Colonial fleet use for their dreaded enemies the Cylons is to call them “toasters.”

The question then naturally follows: Sure, Cylons are toasters, but can they actually make toast?

It turns out that they can.

    Considering how cylons function, you’d think a few slices of bread and a toaster would suffice. No need for error prone mechanical alterations and all that.

    BTW, is anybody else getting audio from that dang Dish Network banner ad? That is so rude.

    Believe me, I have complained very loudly to the powers-that-be about ads with sound that autoplay.
