Well, not having encountered the show before and not recognizing the 1984 reference, I was a little vague on why we were sticking stuff in a room in the first place. My first three picks were things I thought needed to be in the room in order to survive in it (like running water). My second attempt was not much better, because I just picked things I thought the world would be better off without (or that I was pissed off with at the moment). I would have picked different things if I had thought of it as a torture chamber (Carrot Top, perhaps).

SUVs are on my short list because I am sick to death of seeing them driven by people who have no conceivable need for them. It makes sense where you get loads of snow or where the roads are bad, but I have little patience for soccer moms too self-conscious to buy a minivan instead. Or worse, people who don't want to get hurt in an accident, and so buy a car that will kill the other driver instead.

CCGs irritate me because their culture is similar to that of wargaming in many ways, but lacks any of the creative aspects such as modeling or painting. It also is driven by the false economics of card rarity. While there are ways that having more money will let you build a stronger 40k army, you are still going to be fundamentally balanced by point totals. With CCGs, I never liked the idea that enough money could simply buy you the means to victory against many opponents. Tournaments where everyone starts with a fresh deck seem like a better idea.

The Japanese Fishing Union (I forget which one) was just irritating me at the time I came up with the others. It looks like they may have delayed two of our expeditions due to potential impacts of fishing in the area. But this isn't like drilling for oil. We are just taking core. The ship sits in one place for months doing basically nothing. The only way it has an impact on fishermen is if they are stupid enough to drag a net under the research vessel and snag the drill string. But their political clout with the Japanese Government is more powerful than Big Tobacco, the NRA, and the Conservative Coalition combined in the US. So the idea of cramming them all into a small room sounded particularly appealing at the time.

Hey, no problem. In the actual show they get rid of things that are pissing them off as well (there's been the beatles, silent movies, strawberries paul merton, Unpolite muggers etc.)

edit: Sorry about the mispelling :-[

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Bin SUV's! Tanks are much better!

Bin CCGs/TCGs: My luck is rarely good, I may as well buy something and know what I am going to damned well get :P

Bin the Japanese Fishing Unions because it teaches people to move here and follow their rules on fish (ie, 4 Sturgeon per person, as opposed to the 1 man legal limit here).

I also made $756 with Dad today (3rd place in the Sturgeon Derby, would've made second/$945 if it wasn't a darn raffle for size!) yeah, I can understand why people rarely see a 63 1/2" Sturgeon, the damn Japanese fisherman keep taking illegal amounts of them!
