Inspired words compiled by Sarahetc.

Firefly Taught Me....
...to be respectful of other cultures. Some people juggle geese, and that is ok.
that the Bible is a might fuzzy on the subject of kneecaps.
that a stegosaurus and a t-rex can never be friends.
that after a long day, you'll feel better if your spouse tears your clothes off.
that space ships are not science fiction, but telepathy is.
that despite being told not to hit someone with a closed fist, it is sometimes hilarious.
that betrayal is sudden and inevitable.
to worry about apples.
to be drawn to a man of mystery, because so few men are.
that if someone tries to kill you, you kill them right back.


this list will be updated periodically... as it is mightily long

Hey, Maniac,

You might want to check out the Firefly Episodes forum for the thread "Ten Things I Learned From Watching Firefly". In my opinion, the best thread on this site!

I hadn't checked out that other thread yet, but plan to do so. Sounds like a good-un.
I guess I should explain... the list I started is already completed. It is in poster form hanging on my wall. It was mailed to me by Sarahetc (huge fireflyfan) over a year ago. It is so very long, including some few hundred or more sayings, that I didn't have the time to transcribe them all down. Perhaps that other thread is the place to put 'em.

Perhaps I should upload that poster. Suitable for printing on 11x17 paper. That way everybody could have it. There's the new image hosting here and I've had my own web space for awhile.

Maniac, would you be cheesed off if everybody could get a copy of your poster?

Speak of the devil and she comes to give me a kiss on the cheek. Of course I wouldn't mind if you posted Your poster for all to enjoy. It would sure save me the trouble of typing out that enormous list.

ManiacNumberOne:

I never got to play that other thread-game. So here's mine:

Firefly taught me not to try to sell off the neighbor's kids for medical experiments. ...Um ...because it's wrong. ...Right?

Okay, that wasn't very good; but at least I feel like I participated.

Firefly taught me to find www.fireflyfans.net, where I learned:
a) it's very easy to make friends with interesing and intelligent people... and--

b) no matter how careful I am, no matter how smart I think I am, no matter how often I practice, I will ALWAYS be prone to the dreaded double-posting on the aforementioned www.fireflyfans.net thread board... AND--

c) no matter what I post a thread about, no matter how specific my topic is, no matter how I word my questions and/or answers, Malicious will ALWAYS hijack my thread and talk about her shiny self

Back on topic... you can add to your list:

There is a special level of hell reserved for child molesters and people who talk in the theatre.
If a man has been poisoned, don't kiss him.
Pain is scary.
If you're kidnapped by hill-folk don't let them know about your telepathy.
If you rescue people kidnapped by hill-folk just before their execution that makes you BIG DAMN HEROES.
Beware of apples.
If you want to a mechanic to like you then don't insult her ship.
It takes less than a pound of pressure to break the skin.
A nothing part is only a nothing part until you ain't got one.
Don't be the henchman with the best aim or biggest gun - you'll get shot first.
If someone doesn't try to haggle you down they may be planning to shoot you.

Thanks, but the list is complete. At this point, there's probably nothing to say from the original US aired episodes that isn't already there.

I just need to go ahead and post it already. Working up to it. Still trying to figure out what compelled Maniac to start this thread. Which is kind of a smiley thing, but I'm not big on emoticons.

Nothing and nobody stops the quixotic zoid from being a day late and a dollar irrelevant! Have at you, varlette!


Inanely,

zoid

P.S.
Firefly also taught me that it's never a good idea to have your innards scooped out, so's you can smuggle somebody else's black market organs. I mean, how was that ever supposed to work out right?
