Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, SpockWho knew that the game of rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock shown on the Big Bang Theory was and actual game? Not I. I found out the other day while poking around ThinkGeek.com they made a t-shirt (which is pretty cool in its own right) and they linked to the guy who came up with it.

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock was created by Sam Kass with Karen Bryla. The rules are easy and the reasons for using it instead of the standard rock, paper, scissors makes pretty good sense. People that know each other too well will inevitably end up in a tie about 80% of the time. So by adding 2 new variables this will decrease those chances of getting a tie.

Here are the rules (Sheldon will also explain them in the video). Scissors cut paper. Paper covers rock. Rock crushes lizard. Lizard poisons Spock. Spock smashes scissors. Scissors decapitate lizard. Lizard eats paper. Paper disproves Spock. Spock vaporizes rock. Rock crushes scissors.

Love this show!

Godzilla ShirtTonight’s Big Bang Theory had Sheldon wearing yet another way cool t-shirt. This time it was a cool Godzilla monster silhouette shirt from the folks over at Super7.

I will so be getting one of those.

But while I call myself a fan I don’t know if I can name all of the monsters pictured on the shirt. I may need some help with that.

So if you want to look cool like Sheldon go get this shirt. (but not until I get mine)

Tonight’s Big Bang Theory wasn’t really an exceptional episode, but it had its moments. The best of those was at the end of the episode when Penny finally gives Sheldon (who I believe is quickly becoming the show favorite — I know he’s my favorite) an Xmas gift. (You will have to watch the episode to hear Sheldon’s holiday story).

Penny’s gift to Sheldon was a napkin. Not just any napkin. It was Leonard Nimoy’s napkin and not only did it have his signature on it, but he had used it. Therefore it had Leonard Nimoy’s DNA on it. Sheldon was so excited he was shaking. He even went so far as to hug Penny!

I am sitting here working on my posts watching Batman: Returns and Batman and Catwoman were in the middle of a big fight scene and my thoughts immediately go to Big Bang Theory. First I said something about counting catwomen and then I lower my voice and say “I’m Batman”. If you haven’t been watching Big bang Theory you might get either one of those jokes. They are both from the series premiere (I think it was three weeks ago). Funny stuff.

Sheldon and Leonard were talking about being a superhero as they were walking up the stairs and Sheldon said he could never be the Green Lantern without some one coming to him from the planet Oa and giving him a power ring but with enough start up capital and a research facility he could be Batman. Leonard just looks at him asking “You could be Batman?” Then Sheldon lowers his voice and says “I’m Batman. See?”

When we first saw this we almost died laughing. Especially since that was our biggest complaint about Batman: The Dark Knight.

Big Bang TheoryIn the season opener of Big Bang Theory we find Sheldon staying over at Howard’s because he cannot keep a secret Penny told him from Leonard. Once settled in bed Sheldon begins to ramble about Catwoman due to the Halle Berry Poster over Howard’s bed.

Here’s their conversation. After this I will give my list of favorite Catwomen.

Halle Berry as CatwomanSheldon: That poster of Halle Berry is a little unnerving.

Howard: So don’t look at it.

Sheldon: She’s like my fourth favorite Catwoman.

Howard: No Kidding.

Michelle Pfeiffer CatwomanSheldon: Yeah, Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eartha Kitt and then her.

Howard: What about Lee Meriweather?

Sheldon: Oh, I forgot about Lee Meriweather.

Howard: Well I’m glad that is settled.

Lee Meriweather as CatwomanSheldon: That makes Halle Berry my fifth favorite Catwoman. It’s Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriweather”

Howard: Please I’m begging you go to sleep.

Sheldon: I’m trying. I’m counting Catwomen.

Julie Newmar as catwomanSheldon: She did make a fine mutant in the X-Men movies, though.

Howard: Oh for God sake.

Sheldon: She’s not my favorite of the X-Men though. In order that would be wolverine, Cyclops — wait I forgot Professor X. Professor X, Wolverine, Cyclops, Iceman, then Storm, Angel, the Beast — No wait Nightcrawler. Professor X, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Cyclos, Iceman, then Storm, Angel, the Beast.

Eartha Kitt as CatwomanI have to disagree with Sheldon a little on the order of Catwomen.

My favorite Catwoman is Michelle Pfeiffer, then Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry, Lee Meriweather. (And we’ll throw Adrienne Barbeau in there as well. She played Catwoman in Batman the Animated Series).

Last weeks episode of The Big Bang Theory had Sheldon arguing with Leslie Winkel. His response to her insult follows. I just loved it. Sheldon: Yes, well, I am polymerized tree sap and you’re an inorganic adhesive. So whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off of me, returns in its original trajectory and […]
