The true opening to Metal Gear Solid 3 is TOTALLY a rip-off of a 007 James Bond opening.

C'mon, now, Konami :P

Oh Lord XD

1.) Why's Starscream your favorite Transformer?

I got into TF when it first started, and as you may or may not know, the bumbling henchman was the norm for bad guy teams. Starscream actually had the nerve to stand up to Megatron and say he though he'd be a better leader than him, even if all his "plans" for usurping him were woefully incompetent and he'd always get his ass kicked in the end.

Later versions of Starscream would always give him a very unique characterization for the series, so he's stuck around as my favorite.

2.) Do you think you'll ever go back into academia a few years down the road?

Ideally, yes, but for now my brain needs the break. Not only will it let me "heal" from 10+ years at BU, but it might serve to give me the inspiration needed to be able to come up with my own research questions. I've actually had fleeting thoughts here and there about med school, but nothing that I could really consider serious.

3.) What do you think's the hardest thing about working with your birds?

Particular to birds, not too much. I think what's always difficult is managing their homeostasis during surgery, since they're so small and therefore easily prone to expiring if you're not careful with the anesthesia. Aside from that, of course, is the typical neuroscience quibble of "damn, I hope I hit some neurons with this electrode", magnified even more due to the fact that they're implanted and so, if I've missed the target medial-laterally/anterior-posteriorly, I'm screwed :(

4.) What's one thing you miss about Miami that you can't get here?


5.) Why the bear? ;)

LOL JAPAN. But for the serious question, I dunno, lol. Ask Takeuchi XD

So Jen took a mental-health day, and I agreed to stay with her so we could see the doc together. No call back yet on an appointment, but in the meantime, she discovered that "The Lost Levels" was out on VC.

Oh dear:

"What the fuck do you mean Mario can't swim?" (Mario sinks into a small pool of water in World 1-2)
"What the fuck is a Blooper doing there?" (flying around in World 1-3)
"Where's my go-downy-pipe?" (Looking for a warp pipe in 1-2)
"What is the appropriate use of a Starman, then?" (after I chastised her for 'wasting' it as she tried collecting coins while invincible -_-)

And many, many more profanities. Lulz were had.
