Old Stories Thread

Hey folks,

Thought it might be interesting to have a thread for comments on older stories that might be re-read.

For instance...

I was reading Star Traks: TOS, Belch-O-Rama today at lunch. During the scene where the computer declares her intention to kill Jaroch, I noticed that instead of hearing Majel Barrett's voice in my head, the computer sounded a hell of a lot like Ellen McLain's GLaDOS from Portal & Portal 2...except with jello instead of cake.

Just interesting how our perceptions can change over the years...

Thanks a lot!

Hmm...maybe the computer should have tried to seduce Jaroch with cake.

Off topic, but I just heard her as the announcer for Team Fortress 2 this weekend. Very differnt character than GLaDOS, but she still does it so well...
