James Rice (jhrice) says: The background text in this image wasn't exactly random. It was taken from some E-mails from Shaenon, but each character was changed. I think we were discussing toothpicks. All true fans of Narbonic should know the two meanings of 5478. I think this was the fastest an funnest of the Narbonic movie posters I did.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
(TUNE: "42nd Street", Al Dubin & Harry Warren)
What a great ... historic date!
Also used ... to designate ...
Little Artie, he's a smartie,
Get them straight! There's no debate!
Adam Underfoot (unnatural20) says: Er... Suppose I missed the meaning of 5478? Where would I find more about it?
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Well, us forum-ites have created fanfic inspired by the comic, and there's been fanart created of that... could work!
Leon Arnott (l) says: Let's not forget the other meanings of 5478:
* Distance in metres from Dave's apartment to the lab's highway median strip entrance.
* Dave's 'Dig Dug' high score divided by 10.
* Total amount of bullets fired by Mell throughout the whole series.
* Total amount of dollars Dave spends on cigarettes throughout the whole foliation of time in which he buys cigarettes.
* Last 4 digits of Foxy Cop's phone number.
* First 4 digits of Dr. Narbon's phone number.
* Number of minutes Mell spends dead and in Heaven (OH UM SPOILERS).
Query: what is the 'Narbonic Sunday font' used in this and other episodes?
Amy Fiori (amy82986) says:
@adam: Well, Ed kind of already explained it, but if you don't feel like reading the filks:
Artie's original "name" was RT-5478, presumably a serial number. In the Director's Cut, Shaenon told us that she chose that number because her birthdate is 5-4-78.
Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: So It Begins: Alas, the elusive triple recursion eludes us. James, thank you so much for making this fanart of my fanart.
James Rice (jhrice) says: Damn. I completely forgot to post this link about a real VR for mice. http://www.newscientist.com/video?bcpid=25196461001&bclid=1904732932&bctid=44892629001 Log In or Register to post a comment! It's free!
