Got my flu shot this morning! I was impressed that they do it with a small enough needle that it basically doesn't hurt at all.

And the random medical fact of the day: influenza vaccine is made with dead virus, not live, so you can't get the flu from getting a flu shot.

Star Wars tonight; eight gajillion steps of website refurbishment stuff in the meantime.

I'm sorry, but that image reminds me too much of bats22.

But the curly part of the moustache is three pixels.

[Incidentally, I have thus far let the three votes from you, saintpookie and thingo win my poll from last week; I've still not started trimming the moustache...

Dude, your avatar looks like it's out of a chibi Firefly anime. Seriously.

Well, y'know, Dr. Tectonic has sort of an old-west fashion vibe going on. Under the battlesuit, anyway.

Your icon. I swear that looks like Obelix's cousin in Lutece.

Could be! Though the outfit is a bit high-tech for the Roman Empire...

So you're all saying that I need to buy wraparound Miles-Davis-in-his-Bitches-Brew-phase yellow glasses in order to look like a creepy Firefly anime character? (oh yes, and create curly moustache ends?)

Yes. This is EXACTLY what we are saying.
