Futurama is one of those shows that gets my brain working. They kind of jumped the shark, but still I’m pleased with the result. I have science-related conversations with my brother, and that makes me happy.

I hate that I’m not very smart when it comes to some subjects. I try, but there’s just some concepts that don’t sink in. I flat out tell people that I’m dumb at math or anything related to quantum string theory. That’s the only warning they get before I start talking “science” with them.

There are times when my brother makes me feel kind of dumb. He laughed at my solar sail/plasma shield idea. (I was picturing a ship cutting across the universe like a blade. Anything gets close, it gets vaporized. You wouldn’t want to worry about a pebble punching a hole through your ship as you approach the speed of light. It would be a great weapon in normal space too. You’d just bring your shield slashing up and destroy an enemy, or at least knock out their engines.) I don’t think I was explaining myself very well (then or now).

Whatever.
