Explaining Blue Warp Nacelles to a newcomer is a bit like trying to explain quantum mechanics to a kid. You can try. Trust me, you can give it your best. But unless the kid is a gifted savant you'll have to give him lots of time to absorb the information before he gets even the most basic grasp of it all. And even then there's no guarantee he'll understand what the hell's going on.
It's easy: quantum mechanics are mechanics who work on quantums. Next!
Quantums. Like Funyuns. Only more fun. (TM)
Is it possible to eat Funyuns while studying Quantum Mechanics?

The only problem with that is the Funyun Uncertainty Principle.

The next time I eat a Funyun, I shall wear a sombrero in honor of this page of the thread.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

So if we mentioned chorizos, would that also qualify as hot links?

Bah. He may be eating hot links or he may notthe evidence either way is inconclusivebut it is clear he knows naught of chorizo, or he would never have asked the question he did.

Harrumph!

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

So hotlink sandwiches are out of the question, but what about pulled pork?
