John Farrier's Comments

And speaking of sick- Gargamel chased the Smurfs because he wanted to eat them, and even though it was never fully explained it seems like Smurfs must be pretty tasty if Gargamel was willing to go to so great lengths for a Smurf Sandwich.

One fan theory holds that the Smurfs' bodies contain large amounts of the psychadelic drug psilocybin as a result of their prolonged residence in mushrooms. Gargamel wants to eat the Smurfs in order to get high.

It is only in his more lucid moments that Gargamel remembers that Smurfs are more valuable for turning into gold.

I think that Trek is best viewed chronologically by whole series.

Star Trek
Star Trek films 1-6
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Star Trek: Deep Space 9
Star Trek Generations
Star Trek: First Contact
Star Trek: Insurrection
Star Trek: Voyager
Star Trek: Nemesis

The Animated Series should be put off until never.

I disagree with Olson's counsel on Deep Space Nine. The Dominion War story arc--the greatest long story arc in all of Trek--should not be broken up.

I'm amazed when my kids mention some casual event that happened when they were 4 or 5 years old.

I read some good advice once: you can't make quality time. You can only make quantity time and wait for the special moments to just happen.

And now I'm going to go take my own advice.

We own a couple Spheros in my makerspace and they are very impressive. The programming app is very suitable for elementary age students.

One of my colleagues owns the BB-8 Sphero. It is a true wonder. It really does move exactly like BB-8 from the movie.
