once again - a great sentence - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-19: 11:53:00

it could have been better, but i was pressed for time with a project here... - jadenguy, 2007-06-19: 12:29:00

And for his next feat, jadenguy went on to prove that black is white and white is black before getting run over at the next zebra crossing. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:00:00

Having read THHGttG as a kid in the U.S., it took me several years before I realized that a "zebra crossing" was the same thing as a crosswalk. I also thought that Arthur Dent had been forced to wander into the basement of the planning office carrying a fire-burning "torch" as opposed to an electric one (a flashlight). - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:03:00

Today's definition was inspired by Robert J. Sawyer. One of the neat things about Rob's writing is that he likes to ask questions about the big issues -- like religion and ethics -- while he peppers his stories with pop culture references. And one of his favorite pop icons is Star Trek! Rob we love you! And we celebrate Star Trek in your honor! Not that we're getting religious about it or anything... Thanks! ~ James
