I Want an Omegatron
I am reading my new favorite book: “Geochronology and Thermochronology by the 40Ar/39Ar Method,” a book about how to use mass spectrometers to study argon isotopes in order to learn more about rocks. I am learning how argon isotopes can be used to infer the age and thermal history of rocks.
In this book I was just reading about “The Omegatron,” a mass spectrometer tube that was produced in the 1960s by Edwards High Vacuum Ltd. in England.
WHAT A COOL NAME FOR A MASS SPECTROMETER! Or for anything, really. I want an Omegatron. Just becuase it’s a cool word.
Apparently, the Omegatron mass spectrometer is having a comeback.
The Omegatron really does sound like it could help me rule the world!
It doesn't sound as appealing as an Annihlatrix.
This sounds like a doomsday device built by a James Bond villain. Bond would save the day, or course. And the girl. With 2 seconds left on the clock.
Evelyn, I must say your taste for books is quite unique.
I like how Blake put the Omegatron's name in BOLD LETTERS. I think that bold text is the only reasonable means by which to refer to the Omegatron.
I also think that, were I at all a confident man, I could find a very funny usage for that name that would ALWAYS get a laugh in public.
/Don't mind me, just trying to help Bug_girl's effort to turn Skepchick into pornwoo :)
I'm pretty sure that Omegatron was a Decepticon who could transform into a, umn, "body massager"…
Am I the only one to read that as "Orgasmatron"?
Yes Dave, you are :P
GreenNeck2, I agree with you totally. Your comment reminded me of a quotation, which (now that I have my books all unpacked and making our entire household look, you know, edumacated) I was able to look up.
— from Joseph Patrouch's The Science Fiction of Isaac Asimov (Doubleday, 1974).
Clearly, in 1974, nobody had considered straight women or gay men saving the Galaxy!
Well Blake, in 1974, people were traditional ;)
I still don't see where the "woo" in porn woo came from :(
Maybe it's: porn…woo!! :-D
The 'woo' came (I think) from a post where you were encouraging us all to wear tinfoil, at the same time as a discussion broke out on how much people should shave their netherregions…
Wait a minute, maybe the tinfoil was just a fetish and not woo after all!
That would make it woo-fetish porn.
I think I'm gonne take out some time to read all the blog entries I missed while in Vegas …
