@wilw @Cmdr_Hadfield If you get into trouble with Nanites while you're in orbit, I know a guy who can help you contain them. He has experience.

@Cmdr_Hadfield @wilw Wesley, we've talked about you being on the bridge. I believe you're needed in Engineering. :)

@carnojoe My crossover idea for Transformers 4: Open on Tatooine %26 realize to your shock/horror that one of its twin suns...is a fucking Decepticon!

@simonpegg I think it might be worth pointing out that 'The World's End, due to land August, this year, is not about the end of the world

It has nothing to do with Camden or Pirates of the fucking Caribbean, nor does it feature any dancing zombies. All will be revealed. Soon.
