    LOL I agree, this thread is beyond stale, going around in circles.
    I've already linked an interview where Biller openly says that it was the studio who wanted to get rid of Kes, and he didn't mention that she was difficult to write for and actually the contrary. So what more is there to discuss.

    Just about sums up TrekBBS :lol: But it's fun, like watching a dog chase its tail and thinking: just how long can they keep it going?

    I thought this was supposed to be the big unspoken secret? Now it's a lot less fun to see the dog chasing its own tail.

    Every now and then it gets so stale we must mock it to revive it.

    You realize you're one of the more dedicated posters keeping this thread alive, right?

    I'll bring the pitchforks, you bring the tar and feathers. We'll settle canonical issues the old fashioned way.

    There's a box in my closet. But I don't think you want me to open it.

    I miss the good old days, when slash meant proceeding to urinate.

    Nope, not really. I haven't been on this thread much recently.

    Well, back in the day, the joke was (not even juvenile since it was lame by that age) calling UPN U pee in'. So, talking about urination in a Voyager thread isn't entirely out of place.

    On the scale of immature jokes, U pee in' was not as lame as "huh huh huh, Wii" though was nowhere near as enduring as Ur anus. Hmm, has that Call of Duty series ever been mocked as Call of Dooty? I know it's been mocked as Carl of Duty (referencing Carl from Family Matters) with a fake game cover.

    I hate the Uranus jokes though because it has prevented NASA from probing Uranus. Just a Voyager 2 flyby.

    :wtf: I must have missed those particular days. Never heard that one before.

    I remember NBC's "must pee tv."

    This entire thread is recent and a thread search shows you've made 40 (forty!) posts here. That's great, but I'd think you'd be the last person to tell people to pack it in.

    Left those who are without sin, cast the first post.

    (But we all agree that Teacake's Closet is probably lined with jars of urine, and not in a good way?)

    I remember that jars of urine scene in Rubyfruit Jungle.. I'm sure you've read that Guy.

    I wouldn't be talking about packing it in the way this threads been going of late spot_loves_data.

    And now, finally, we return to the topic.
