Missing Back Button

Didn't know if anyone noticed yet, but I loaded this email and at the end, there's no Back button. Anywhere. I used the TAB button to see if it was hidden or anything and nothing came up. Just wanted to let you guys know.

Draw Trogdor again ;)

TBC knew that a wiki member was in the Flashforward audience. On the H*R Junkmail Filta, I'd like to think they were winking at us. — It's dot com 19:19, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Maybe that was just in there because TBC has stated multiple times that they don't answer emails on a previously covered topic (dangeresque 3 being the closest thing to an exception). --IT'S A LION! 20:14, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Sure, that's why "Draw Trodor again" is there, but I think the ";)" is directed this direction. — It's dot com 20:30, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Nah, I don't think it was us in particular - more like the people who keep sending emails about things that have already been done. --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 20:32, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Well, of course I can't be sure, but I'd still like to think so. :) — It's dot com 20:37, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Another Nod?

Just this past week we started a page about Strong Bad Smiling - and what's the final shot in this email? Coincidence?? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:31, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Yes. —BazookaJoe 20:41, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Tom Hank's SNL Reference

the intro was a definate reference to the Tom Hanks appearance on SNL; specifically the Wayne's World Sketch with Hanks as the roadie for Aerosmith. user:thereddestraddish

Yes it is, I couldn't place it. Add that! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:35, 21 March 2006 (UTC)


I thought of that Wayne's World sketch as soon as I heard it also. Stonecold5987 (talk·edits) 20:11, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Nougat is the candy equivalent of veal

What is Strong Bad talking about? There's a Wikipedia entry on Nougat but I didn't get any veal equivalency there. --66.241.95.65 19:58, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

He's just saying that Veal is like the best kind of meat, nougat is like a candy Veal. Its like.. a metafor? i dunno, one of those.--Collin 20:00, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Well, I could be wrong, but I think this was another job for making stuff up. Remember, that's one of Strong Bad's hobbies. Heimstern Läufer 20:01, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
I don't think so. The important characteristic of veal is it's made from baby cows, or at least that seems to me to be what he's referencing. Veal is only the best if you like it. Lots of people don't. --66.241.95.65 20:06, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Veal is really tender, and nougat is soft and easy to chew as well. I guess. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:07, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Veal is also expensive and closely associated with cuisine. You may not like it, but that doesn't make it any less luxurious. There's no way he means that nougat is the candy that's made out of baby cows. That's just stupid and totally counter to the idiom he's using. Besides, he's trying to hype the candy bar, not get PETA on his case. PolarBoy
So nougat is the most expensive, luxurious candy? Finally, an explanation that makes sense! --66.241.95.65 20:43, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Transcript

Hey, i'm doing the transcript i guess, and since its my first I really don't know what i'm doing. So if you have anything to add, change, fix, etc., be my guest. --Collin 20:02, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

"Sibilants"

I believe Strong Bad is actually saying "syphilis" at the beginning of this email. Because: he is obviously doing a mike check, and "syphilis" is the word generally used in video production to do a mike test. Trust me, I know. --IT'S A LION! 20:11, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Um, no. It's Sibilance, clearly, and ref. Wayne's World skit on SNL with Tom Hanks and Aerosmith.

Also, the whole point is to check that the sound system is properly reproducing sibilants (or sibilance). In the U.S., we don't pronounce the "T", so it's impossible to know whether he's saying sibilants or sibilance, but it's definitely not syphillis. --66.241.95.65 20:15, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Sorry. My bad. *smirks at people who watch Wayne's World* --IT'S A LION! 20:20, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Heh, I at first heard it as "Sibboleth". (Points to the first person to identify that reference.) But what we wrote is obviously correct. Heimstern Läufer 20:45, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

I saw the same joke used on a rerun of The Daily Show the day this e-mail was supposed to come out (the day before it actually came out). Odd coincidence, or do TBC get their jokes from late night tv, much as I do?

familiar sign...

Did anyone see the Tandy 400 in the commercial? --The 386 My talk 20:22, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

It's already noted on the Tandy 400 page. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:23, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Newspaper

The paper when Strong Bad is in the bathroom says :

Back Pape: Famous couples were spotted eating, walking around, and on movie screens across the country.

Da NewsPapes: World events continued for the 43rd consecutive day. This is just 3 shy of all-time record of 46. Many believe this is a sign of things to come. Ed Bache concurs. "This is a sign of things to come."

I Don't know where to put it, but thats what it says. --Collin 20:37, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

I would put it after the Priodic Table of Candy. --66.241.95.65 20:42, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
How do you get rid of the black border when you view the swf file? csours 20:44, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Well how i did it, was i made a new file in Flash MX and imported the SWF file, and on the frame that it had the newspaper, i just clicked the border and pressed delete. When you import it you don't have as much control as if it was a FLA file, but you can still do some stuff with it. at least in the version i have. --Collin 20:47, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Elements

Someone's mentioned that Pb and Al stand for lead and aluminum in the remarks section. It seems to me that this should be an all-or-nothing comment. So should we add Co (cobalt), Cr (chromium), Ca (calcium), and Mt (meitnerium)? Or should we delete the existing remark?

It's been removed on those grounds, but I'm in favor of re-adding that fact with all the real elements listed. —BazookaJoe 20:53, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, that was me. I mistakenly noted "Ma" as a real element in my summary, didn't remember Cr, and have never heard of Mt before (it's one of those bottom-row post-100 elements) but yeah. --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 20:54, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
I was thinking of making a page for the elements --Dacheatbot · Communicate 21:09, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Might not be a bad idea to move the table there too, as it's quite distracting here. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:11, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Okay. Should I take it of the email page? --Dacheatbot · Communicate 21:13, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
If you're going to, put it on its own page first to save yourself some trouble. --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 21:14, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
