    Now, that would be a cool t-shirt. Must resist coffee mugs...

    LOL it would be if it wasn't for my embarrassing collection of t-shirts that have coffee references on them. My favourite ones being:

    The most hilarious thing happened last week in class. The professor saw me talking to someone so he asked me to answer the question he just asked. I actually heard the question and considering the fact that I just wrote a paper on bosons, fermions and supersymmetry I answered it and he just smiled and said "You must've had your coffee this morning. Good, good!" :devil:

    :bolian: you should see my apartment. It's a haven for nerds :guffaw:

    Mwahahahah nice :devil:

    Yup! Well I'm getting my MA and then phd so I'm not there yet. 3 more years to go before I can be officially called a physicist! But everyone at my uni, including the professors, know me as the coffee crazy person. This is gonna sound terrible but my family is Croatian so everyone drinks coffee several times a day and I've been drinking it since I was about 11. When I first started watching Voyager I think one of the main things that made me fall in love with it at the time was Janeway's coffee addiction. I mean that's terrible since later of course I realized there's a lotttt more to it than that but at the time I would get a giggle out of Janeway's "Coffee. Black" lines. :devil:

    I got my PhD earlier this year. The first time you get to be called "Doctor" is exhilarating... and then you forget about it because it's time to go back to work, and there is always something new that will make you bash your head against the wall. I love my job. :lol:

    I'm Italian. Incandescent espresso runs in my veins, darker than the night and thicker than blood.

    :guffaw: I think I love you. And yeah, I'm nervous as hell about finishing school. I always jokingly say that I wish I could be a student forever....what most people don't realize is that I'm not really joking :/

    Yup! I actually ordered it on ebay but then I found out that the guy who's making/selling them has a store literally down the street from where I live :guffaw:

    Where in Germany do you live by the way? I lived in Essen for a few years (grade 3-6) I really miss Germany. Especially around Christmas time. :/

    I'm a bit more north, Hannover in lower Saxony. O yes, Germany and Christmas is a match made in Heaven! Loved it too when I moved here from Brazil...

    I have really low resolution on my monitor, which means that everything is HUGE and half the above post was off the edge of the screen.

    I thought Firecrackerrrr was admitting that she had once been Miss Germany.

    (More beauty pageants need a kathryn Janewy Section.)

    Sometimes it's really amusing to be half blind.

    ^I prefer your Janeway head mug. If they did a triple-size one I'd drink my tea out of her head every single day.

    Objectophilia.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object_sexuality

    The internet tells me that there is/was a woman who was married to the Berlin Wall (She is quoted as saying that the great wall of China may be bigger than her husband, but it's obviously a bit thick.) and there's another woman who married the Eiffel Tower.

    I know it's legal to marry the dead (think historical figures, not the freshly burried.) in France but 5 minutes of googling couldn't prove if marrying these erections was at all legal more so than symbolic.

    I may have to move to France for a time. I wouldn't mind telling people I'm married to Queen Elizabeth.

    I'm sure the illegality of bigamy still applies, and you have to go through all the paper work and approvals you would with some regular marriage with a breathing human being.

    So there might already be someone married to the Virgin Queen which should holdfast until both halves of the union are equally retired from life.. There would have to be queues for the more celebrated too. Long, long queues and certainly if there is living family they can object?

    So.

    Where in the world can we marry fictional characters?
