The Fandom Google Maps Has An Incredible Doctor Who Easter Egg The control room got a makeover for the 2012 Christmas special. SExpand Hell, I just started watching it, and the TARDIS is the dingiest, most run-down looking ship I've ever seen. Also, you don't "accidentally" walk into need the key. Something about Mongolian hordes or whatever. The Tardis regenerates with the Doctor at least since the new series I haven't watch much of the old Doctor but with each new Doctor we now get a new Tardis this version is particularly new and neat looking though. It's the lighting.

Doctor Who Cell Phone Alert Charms The hobbit — an unexpected deficiency A striking feature of fantasy literature has been the consistent victory of good characters over bad. While the consensus has been to attribute this to narrative conventions about morality and the necessary happiness of endings, we hypothesised that a major contribution to the defeat of evildoers in this context is their aversion to sunlight and their poor diet, which may lead to vitamin D deficiency and hence reduced martial prowess. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble, secosteroid hormone, which in humans is largely synthesised in the skin when exposed to ultraviolet light, and is sometimes called “the sunshine vitamin”.1 Vitamin D is also found in some foods, particularly oily fish and, in small amounts, in egg yolks, cheese, beef, liver and some mushrooms. It has a well described role in calcium metabolism, with deficiency resulting in rickets and osteomalacia. Results Sun avoidance is a recurring theme among the evil characters. Discussion

The Secret Douglas Adams RPG That People Have Been Playing for 15 Years By Lewis Packwood Douglas Adams dreamt up the Starship Titanic in 1982 as a half-page gag in Life, the Universe and Everything, the third book of the Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ‘trilogy in five parts’. The luckless vessel served as a warning that ships powered by improbability drives run the risk of having infinitely improbable things happen to them – like winking out of existence, for example. Many years later, in the mid-Nineties, Adams revisited the idea when he was casting around for something on which to base a CD-ROM game. Starship Titanic, the greatest starship ever built, picked up speed, swayed a bit, wobbled a bit, veered wildly and, just as the crowd were about to scream out in disbelieving terror, it vanished in an event that would later became known as Spontaneous Massive Existence Failure (SMEF). The Starship Titanic novel The original, very basic Starship Titanic website from before the launch of the game. As in any good story, the characters developed over time.

7 Fan Works So Good They Were Adopted By The Creators One of the worst insults you can say to a professional creator is "This is like something a fan would make." Usually, that means it's really, really bad, or that they made some characters fuck for no reason. However, there are times when a fan ascends from the unwashed masses and presents a completely self-made work that kicks the original's ass -- so much that the pros have no choice but to make it official. Here are some times the fans schooled the official makers on how to do their jobs: #7. Spoilers for those who haven't watched Sherlock: At the end of the second season, the modern-day Sherlock Holmes falls off a building and dies. The first episode of season three begins by replaying the scene in which Sherlock falls off the building -- only this time, we see that he bounces back up, because he's wearing a bungee cord.

Dune Week: Spice Filled Sandworm | Kitchen Overlord I have an entirely irrational love of David Lynch’s 1984 science fiction epic, Dune. (This is almost unrelated to my entirely rational and well thought out love of Frank Herbert’s Dune books. These two things should never be confused.) Maybe I saw it at just the right age to find Sting, black leather, and redheads seductive. Maybe it was the first big budget science fiction movie I’d seen where a woman who was just there to be a decorative prize actually bitched about how much her role in life sucked. Maybe giant sandworms made me think of David Bowie’s tights in Labyrinth. Fast forward a few years. Spice-Filled Sandworm Bread 1 1/2 cups warm water 2 tbsp yeast 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla 1 tbsp cinnamon 3 eggs ¼ cup slightly cooled melted butter 2 tsp salt 6 ½ – 7 cups bread flour 3/4 cup powdered sugar ¼ cup water 1 tsp cinnamon or garama masala 1 tsp vanilla extract So many things went wrong with my first sandworm that the Fremen threw me out of the sietch. No. Behold and learn.
