[edit] Chatter and Initial Reactions

This was better than usual in my view. I think the Brothers are coming out of their... funny-block. Anyone agree? -- FireBird

Yeah, for a bit, they kinda went into a slump. The only thing that kept me watching was the hope that they would start being funny again(and Doug the Dino. Gotta love ol' Doug!). Now it seems they may be climbing their way back on top.

--MAX Jibney 05:04, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

I wouldn't ever stop watching Homestar Runner. Not for a million years! -- FireBird

Alright, well, I liked The Facts and Cheat Commandos Ep 3 better than this one :) I don't think they've been in a slump for upwards of a month (perhaps 2, perhaps 3) and have been pleased with their contemporate work :)

What made you think that they had been in a slump? Seriously, explain, because it hadn't really occurred to me. --Ogoms Oct. 4

Yeah, the Brothers' Chaps have been in an on-and-off slump for a few months now. --Dragondoom5

YAH I WAS THE FIRST GUY TO ADD ALL THE EASTER EGGS TO Time Capsule email before i did it all it said is "this sucks" -Silvermonkey8

Isn't the casette tape in the easter egg going backwards? -gront

REMOVE: This song sounds in no way like "Let it burn" by Usher, I seriously doubt this is a reference. The only similarity that I see between Usher and Strong Bad, is that they both produce a ton of number one jams! -smoothmedia

If dry ice was in the capsule, and the capsule was tight and strong enought to keep from leaking, opening, or exploding, wouldn't the gas expanding cause it to cool down and thus make a white fog shoot out? Daniel 22:19, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Suggestion to someone who knows how to do this

I am thinking that the "turtle" article should become part of the transcript...can or should this be done? -- Tony Stony 01:14, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Standards for Strong Bad Emails

Just wondering if there should be a "Strong Bad Email #X" in the Summary for all Strong Bad Emails? Because it was there in most of them, but not in the most recent ones -- thejesterx 20:08, 4 Oct 2004 (MST)

[edit] Isle of Pom? (DECLINED)

The time capsule looks an awful lot like the The Isle of Pom.

  • Uhhm, it's a DECLINE, no, and I hate you get out. I betcha I know why the person wrote this "fun" fact. Probably 'cause it's gross and nasty and old and they didn't want it. Y'know, I think (in sarcastic voice) Pom-Pom's voice sounds an awful freakin' lot like Mike friggin' Chapman blowing BUBBLES IN HIS MILK! Oh, man. I peed my carpet. Cheatachu72 03:10, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • It tastes like a #1 DECLINE! --Upset_Your_Balance 04:45, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Sorry but there are a lot of things on the site that look like that, there are the bog ole headache meds (a pic on the jar) power crunches in the 20X6 Game, Pom Isle, Time Capsule, and DEAD BODIES IN THE FREEZER!! -- Lappy 486 05:17, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • It's obvious, but DECLINATION ABBREVIATION. No donut for you. Get outta here. -MK and/or BurnBox 05:59, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. The capsule is a rather generic shape. One that the Isle of Pom just happens to be in. GG Crono
  • Accept Why the heck not? by the way, are you feelin' alrite cheetachu72? you seem a little out of it.--Because, It's Midnite
  • No *sigh* I'm okay. Just have mood swings now and then. WHAT DO YOU MEAN OUT OF IT?!? RRRRRRRRRRRRR! {gets hit by tranquilizer darts} uuuuuuuuuuu, {smack head against keyboard} Cheatachu72 15:55, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I really don't see what's wrong with this fun fact. It's true the time capsule looks like the Isle of Pom. Plus, fans wouldn't be able to tell unless they go to the museum, which I myself didn't bother looking at until I was a hardcore fan. Yes, a capsule is a common shape, but I haven't seen it on the website too much, which makes it stand out a little. So Accept. - Song from 60s 22:36, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • DECLINE!! Who cares! And Stinkoman looks like Strong Bad! -Kinsey
  • DECLINE!DECLINE!!DECLINE!!!Pac-man 16:54, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept. If there are indeed more than just a few things with this capsule shape, then a page needs to be created for them. — It's dot com 02:39, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • TOTAL DECLINE. Listen, if some new guy watched both Time capsule and the Isle of Pom, they would suddenly make that reference! DELETE IT! Maestro Oh, and one more thing. The fact is already in the Fun Facts section of Time Capsule!!!!!!Maestro 04:25, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • DeclineNo it looks more like a cold pill The Pardack
    • secondation Which is exactly why I (feebly) created the Pills Inside jokes page. EdgeKing 21:12, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)EdgeKing

[edit] Norse mythology (DECLINED)

The line about making people from spit may be a reference to a Norse myth, in which the Aesir (war gods) and Vanir (fertility gods), to seal a peace treaty between them, made a man (named Braugi) from their collective spit. He knew all their combined secrets, but was eventually killed by giants.

  • Decline. It's more likely a reference to the fact that spit contains DNA, and it may one day be possible to clone someone from their DNA. Aurora the Homestar Coder 15:03, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • While I'm suprised about how much you know about Norse Mythology...Decline The_Pardack
  • Decline. Uh... no. While that's a very well thought-out reach, it's still a reach - the reference is to cloning from DNA. --TheEggman 12:12, 12 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second. It's probably a reference to DNA and cloning. TakuaKaita600 15:24, 12 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • You obviously put a lot of work into this one, but unfortunately, I must Decrine. As said by other folks above, it's a reference to cloning from DNA. Rudeboy87 14:49, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Revise and Accept. This is a FUN FACT! Mind you, I highly doubt this is what TBC were trying to reference, but my life has been enriched by reading this. I would suggest rewriting it, however, to say "There is a story in Nordic mythology in which the Aesir (war gods)...." This way, there's no suggestion that TBC was trying to reference this fact.--rsl12 16:24, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. No way does this work. The whole joke is based on the popular misconseption of what cloning is. Clones are genetic twins, not exact duplicates with the same minds, thoughts, and memories of the original. -- The Real Zajac 15:21, 17 Apr 2005
  • Decline. This is NOT a fun fact. This is barely a fact. Why wasn't this one just deleted? --ISlayedTheKerrek 17:54, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Wig reference? (Declined)

The gross old wig is probably the wig Homestar wore as part of his Kurt Cobain costume in Homestarloween Party.

  • Decline I don’t see the connection. The gross old wig looks way different from the Cobain wig. --The Pardack
    • Second'd.evin290 20:37, 18 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • Second -Alun Clewe 04:34, 21 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • I'll Second that till i cant Second it no more. Just because you WANT to put a fun fact doesn't mean you have to make stuff up. kerrek slaya 14:38, 21 Feb 2005 (MST)kerrek_slaya
  • Decline The gross old wig is primarily brown hair, while his Kurt Cobain wig is primarily blond. --TheEggman 21:20, 7 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Comment Well, it is old and gross. --Trogga 10:52, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] Eyes (Accepted)

Homestar's eyes appear to be placed closer together in this email than usual.

  • "Oh no! You shank my ACCEPTION ship!" Nice observation! I kidn of noticed it, but I wasn't sure... Good job! --MrsCommanderson 22:41, 27 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Accepted, yo! - After some close inspection, yes, his eyes do seem a bit different. I guess TBC made this sort of mistake before with Strong Bad in "Where's The Cheat?" where they messed up one of his eyes. Nice job pointing this out! - SaikoRoxi 4:42 PM, May 27, 2005
  • ACCEPT! Good find! -- Tony Stony 23:29, 27 May 2005 (UTC)
  • *Watches toon* Yeah, you're right. I think it's cuz he puts the wig on his head in front of his eyes and one eye had to be visible so they moved it, ya know?
  • Accept- Whoa, crap, I never noticed that, nice find! Ramrod 14:20, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • One other think I noticed is that Strong Bad misspells "smokey" as "smoky". Shoould somebody put this? -- Lappy 486 00:43, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Smoky is a valid spelling. Crystallina 00:54, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
    • I happened to notice that you misspelled "should" as "shoould." --Upset_Your_Balance 04:36, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Oh, sorry, I didn't know it was spelled both ways. --
  • I have been proven right. Very good observation. Accepting. -MK and/or BurnBox 06:07, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Those last 400 fun facts were not so good, this one is much better! Congrats to whoever wrote this fun fact. I mean, I might give 1 accept for every 30 declines. And if you couldn't figure out what the crap my vote is, IT'S A FREAKIN' ACCEPT, MAN! JEEZ! Cheatachu72 16:22, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I was so ready to delete this fact and post a notice saying that provably untrue facts are DELETED!! I saw a picture where "time capsule" Homestar's eyes were placed on another Homestar, and it was totally unconvincing since the eyes were different scales in the first place. Then I watched the email, and compared it with flashback. Wow. It's true. --Jay (Talk) 18:05, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I hate to do this since it's true, but Decline. I'm sorry, but I just don't think it's very fun. I don't think the people who accepted have to worry, though, since I seem to be the only one on the opposite side so far. - Song from 60s 22:28, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
    • It is quite interesting though. And somebody's bound to submit it again, aren't they? 19:10, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. Nah. I'm with you on this one. -- tomstiff 19:06, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept,dude! Wow, you have good eyes,if you were able to spot that! Ookelaylay 15:00, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Maestro accepts this.I see that you're right.Maestro 04:25, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Seconded. Didn't notice until I saw it. James Craven 1:16 AM EDT June 3 2005
    • Second --mibluvr13 22:07, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] The Life Saving Turtle

The turtle featured in the newspaper clipping is the same one used in new hands.

VERDICT: This item was unanimously accepted, 6–0. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/time capsule.

[edit] Taped over, or intentional use?

When I heard the "future jam" I assumed Strong Bad used the "grumblecake theme" on purpose, then distorted it and went into the tune proper. You hear stuff like that all the time.

[edit] "Froosh"

Okay, I added the following to the Remarks section a few days ago:

The sound made when Stinkoman opens the time capsule is a recycle of Strong Bad saying "Froosh" from only seconds before, and therefore Strong Bad perfectly predicted the sound that would be produced on opening the capsule.

It was removed by Lapper, who said it belonged in Sound Effects, so that's where I put it. It was then removed from there by The Chort, who said it wasn't relevant for that page. So now I've put it back here again, where it probably beonged in the first place.

[edit] Sam the Concorder

This probably is not worth mentioning in the main article, because it really doesn't like Strong Bad actually says this, but the way "sam concord california" is written, and the way SB reads it, it almost sounds like Sam conquered California. He just marched right in and told Arnold to get out! "We don't need no bodybuildin' robots running this town!" Anyway, that just hit me when the random button landed on it, and I thought it was hillarious, so I thought I'd share--Antisexy 03:50, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

I've actually thought that myself, and wondered too about if it needed a note. Yopu've saved me a great deal of debate. =3 --DorianGray 03:52, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Viscosity

Anyone think that "with the viscosity" could be a reference to Black Sheep's song "Strobelite Honey"? It's a stretch for sure, but it wouldn't be the first time Strong Bad has quoted a hip-hop lyric (compare "so fresh and so clean, clean" in spring cleaning), and I can't think why else anyone other than a chemist would say "with the viscosity." (I don't know what Black Sheep meant by it either.)

My thoughts exactly. I think Black Sheep might have meant "velocity"...?

[edit] Con-cord versus Conk-erd

In the Bay Area, it's pronounced conk-erd. 18:58, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Luh-BOR-uh-tor-TTATOT

Homestar's pronunciation of "Luh-BOR-uh-tor-ee" is a reference to the cartoon series Dexter's Laboratory.

Okay, this stupid "fact" has somehow survived for several months; let's get rid of it, shall we? There is no contextual reason to support the assumption that this is a reference to Dexter's Laboratory, and no one call tell me that the pronunciation "la-BOR-atory" didn't exist before Dexter. OptimisticFool 02:11, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

But it was a very popular show, and it popularized it. — Defender1031*Talk 02:12, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
It did? I'd've thought the German Scientist stereotype would've done that. Dr. Frankenstein and all. --DorianGray 02:14, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
How many people started saying it before dexter? — Defender1031*Talk 02:33, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Jillions. OptimisticFool 02:37, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
IPA is a bit hard to read, but if I'm reading it correctly, it looks like "la-BOR-a-tree" is actually standard in the UK per none other than Cambridge. I think this fact is on very shaky ground. Heimstern Läufer 04:05, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, looks like i've been proven wrong. — Defender1031*Talk 04:06, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] This deserves to be on the page! Why ISN'T it?

"If we are to assume that X0 years had passed from the email by the time Stinkoman opened the capsule, then the year he opened it in would be 20X5, not 20X6." That seems like it should go under the Remarks section or something. The only reason I'm not putting it there yet is because I'm afraid the change will get deleted if I don't ask permission. but, a buttdanceNeox ONION BUBS!YOU WILL RESPECT MAH AUTHORI-TAH!!! 00:11, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

That's a bit nitpicky. When people say that the dinosaurs roamed the earth 00 Billion years ago, are you gonna tell them "no, it's actually 200 billion, 187 million, 522 thousand..."? it's silly. — Defender1031*Talk 03:10, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I was only saying this would make sense if we were to ASSUME that Stinkoman opens the capsule X0 years from the email. But I get your point. but, a buttdanceNeox ONION BUBS!YOU WILL RESPECT MAH AUTHORI-TAH!!! 21:57, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
DeFender: It's especially silly when you consider the fact that every relevant scientist agrees that Earth is only a few billion years old; nowhere near 200! ;) I'm just being difficult; I know what you meant. --Jay (Talk) 22:10, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
ESPECIALLY since "00" isn't a substantial number... darn that sticky 2 key. — Defender1031*Talk 16:05, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
