Chad notes, in response to PZ's rather absurd assertion that biology is the only Dumped Upon science, and that physics is so well treated in movies and TV, that "Most of the SF movies I see are lucky if they can get Newton's Laws right, let alone any of the finer points of astrophysics." Indeed,…

Nifty. I wake up at B-wing o'clock.

A few mismatches in the ships & times though. 1 o'clock is an Imperial shuttle, 3 o'clock is a rebel transport, 11 o'clock is the Millennium Falcon, some others are different from the one shown, but match the one at the link.

You call yourself a nerd. I know nerds and you, sir are no nerd. I am not a nerd, I haven't even seen all the Star Wars movies and I can tell an imperial shuttle from a TIE-fighter. As if that were not proof enough you mistake the Millennium Falcon for an "X-Wing Fighter". An unforgivable sin.

But my feelings have no bearing or weight. I merely report the judgment of the committee of the Most High Nerds.

As punishment for your disgrace of the name nerd and failure to meet minimum nerdly standards it has been decided by the committee of the Most High Nerds that you must be publicly chastised and made an example of.

The punishment chosen will be:
1)You will be striped of your present rank as nerd elite and your name struck from said list of esteemed individuals. You will be relisted as a nerd trainee (junior grade).

2) You will be escorted under guard to the steps of the Air and Space museum on Darwin's birthday where at high-noon your pocket protector will be confiscated, you will be given an atomic wedgie by a linebacker from a top ten university, your calculator watch will be reprogrammed to display the value of pi as exactly 3, and your glasses will be removed and stomped.

There was some discussion of recalling your academic credentials and sending you back to graduate school, don't think they can't through creative hacking and editing of your academic record, but in light of your past good works and continuing contributions the committee of Most High Nerds chose to show you mercy.

Are you talking to the owners of the website? After all, I just copied and pasted from their page...and apparently different models of the clock differ.

As a clock geek (rather than a Star wars nerd) I really want a wall clock with 24 hours on it.

Ever seen one Bora?
