Congratulations Atlantis!

STS-115 is accomplished, and Atlantis and her crew are safely home. Congratulations!

Also, I got up early this morning to see the ISS go overhead. It's much too high to resolve into anything more than a dot with the naked eye, of course, but it was still cool. (Here is the sightings opportunities page for anyone who might like to look up his area. Select your country from the dropdown box on the left.)

Anyway, in celebration of the successful completion of the mission, I am pleased to introduce an unprecedented opportunity. For the first time ever, it is Ask Mrs. Peel Week! Feel free to pose any questions you like in the comments section. Questions will be accepted until midnight CDT next Thursday.

Update: By the way, this is kind of a last hurrah for this blog. I doubt I'll post here again after answering y'all's questions, as I simply haven't got the time. I do still have time for occasional comments at AOSHQ and IB, of course.

I suppose questions concerning leg quantities and the resale value of Jeep Cherokees are out of order.

"Atlantis" always reminds me of "Stargate: Atlantis". I like that show. But as I don't watch TV, I don't watch it. I'll get the DVDs later on.

Will you please post that one-legged picture of yourself?
Crop your head off if you need to, I just want to see that Aggie pose.

Is Muslihoon's observation I like that show. But as I don't watch TV, I don't watch it. the modern equivalent of "One hand clapping" Zen thing?

These may be more geek than nerd questions, but:

1. Assume a land battle, who would win - a tribe of Fremen or clan of Klingons?

2. Assuming the Skylark is not available, which ship would you prefer to own - Serenity or Moya?

3. Your fella picks you up for the big mystery date, telling you only that you're going to "a concert". At the end of the evening, you agree this was the best concert he could have taken you to. What was the venue/who was the musician? Assume a time machine.

4. Your new faster-than-light starship is crewed, prepped and ready to depart for a new world which you'll be overseeing the development of. You have a half-million applicants from potential settlers, but only room for five thousand on this trip. Since nothing bad is expected to happen to those left behind and since it's your ship and project, you don't have to be all multi-culti if you don't want to. Or you could. What criteria do you use to select the settlers?

5. Is this really quitting blogging or is it like Dave at Garfield Ridge quitting?

6. Are there really girls who would choose Cyclops over Wolverine? 'Cause I could suspend my disbelief about mutant powers and adamantium skeletons, but that just took the comic into the realm of fantasy...

7. If things work out with the new fella, where would you register for the oscilloscopes?

I think Dr. Richard Seaton was a bad role model for me: whenever he ran into a snag, he'd meet a new alien civilization and pull an all-nighter to learn all of their science and technology (though I don't recall if any of them helped him get around the "melting copper bus-bars" problem that always plagued him during a battle). Naturally, you figure "if he could do that, I should at least be able to learn quantum mechanics overnight!"

That has turned out to be a pretty poor strategy.

1. What is the make and model of your car. You know, the one that's worth more now than it was when you drove it off the lot?

2. Do you think that Osama has joined the choir invisibile or is he still with us?

3. If so, does it matter?

4. Assume Dr. Pepper and its knockoffs such as Mr. Pibb, Dr. Thunder, etc. don't exist. What then is your favorite soft drink, if any?

5. The XB-70 Valkyrie supersonic bomber: baddest-ass plane ever to be built or merely an interesting prototype?

6. Since the tables are turned, what are your reasons for not blogging about your relationship? :P

7. Granite countertops: worth the $70-80-odd dollars a square foot?

8. Do you have a favorite linux distro and if so which one?

Figure that oughtta be enough fun for awhile. ;)

1. Do you still have a room at your parents house?

2. Have they changed it?

3. How long do you think parents should wait after graduation before they take their kids shit down and repossess their room?

Those were after the deadline, Michael, but I'll still answer.
