Allah Sulu-Capcom

Writer's Block: The Wrath of Ohrwurm

German has a word for everything, like ohrwurm. Translated literally as "earworm" in English, it's the word for songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away. What earworm of a song do you most dread burrowing into your head?

Do you honestly expect me to answer that question, you bastards? You'll be posting it every day!

WTF?

Is This A Hint?


This is one of the latest things that Amazon.com decided to recommend to me.

EDIT: I think it's funny that one of the authors is named "Karl Marks". I wonder how many people will end up killed by following this brand of "Marksism"? (Not to mention how funny it is to find a book like that on a site named "Amazon".)

A Trek Question
Has anyone ever written a fanfic in which the TNG crew goes back in time to England in the first half of the 1800s? And if so, did Picard really find Earl Grey hot?
   
 
A Scene, For Your Enjoyment
Captain Picard stood before the replicator, trying to decide what sort of hot beverage he would enjoy. After a great deal of thought, he opened his mouth to order some hot Earl Grey tea. Just then, the doorbell rang. "Come!" he said absently. A steaming mug appeared in the replicator. Captain Picard took a sip and then immediately spit it out.
