I just found the perfect birthday card for Haruka Nanase.
“Aleksis and Sasha Kaidanovsky, husband and wife pilot team. They hold the record for longest sustained neural handshake, over eighteen hours.”
“I’ve heard of them. Perimeter patrol on the Siberian Wall.”
“That’s right. Under their watch, it went unbreached for six years.”

Attention Irish people!!
Talking to Sam and he was talking about a cupboard and I said the word “press” and he looked very confused.
Why do we call it a press??
Like, I’d never say the word cupboard or cabinet.
According to Folk-etymology: A Dictionary of Verbal Corruptions or Words Perverted in Form or Meaning, by False Derivation or Mistaken Analogy by Abram Smythe Palmer
"PRESS, a cupboard, is generally regarded as being a derivative of Lat. pressorium, an instrument for pressing or compressing, used for the recepticle wherein clothes or linen are pressed. However, Bret. pres, armoire, a cupboard (dialect of Léon), Gael. preas, a wooden case, armarium, are suggestive of a Celtic origin (Ferguson, Cumberland Glossary, s.v.). Compare Welsh pres, and preseb, a crib."
Hence why it’s only really used in Ireland.
Tucker’s Law 1/3
A defining Malcolm moment that never appeared in the show proper.
Carlos and Cecil reach an angst-ridden agreement that he is allowed to cut his hair twice a year, based on the average human hair growth rate of 0.44 millimeters a day. This achieves “maximum lushness” without sacrificing hygiene or requiring a hairnet in the lab.
The first few times are always the hardest.

These tentacular Octopus and Giant Squid tables are the work of San Francisco-based bronze sculptor Kirk McGuire. The beautiful bronze cephalopods are so lifelike, we wouldn’t be surprised if you felt phantom tentacles tickling your ankles while sitting at either of these tables.
Visit Kirk McGuire’s website to check out his standalone bronze sculptures and more of his awesome undersea animal tables.
