      My ex-wife once rear-ended somebody in an intersection, much to her embarrassment, in having to admit to being at fault to the cop, she had to blush away as he gazed at her "CRS" t-shirt (a relic of the '92 Olympic Trials; one good reason for Nationals to return to NO!) and thought, "no shit!"

        The other day I woke up w/ Tralfamidore, and in its buzzing about it soon transmogrified into both Trantor and Tantor. (There is a point to all this!)

        So, for the quiz of the day, ID those three words.

        quiz=no peekie! Anywhere!
        Great: now I can't stop thinking Transmogrified

          I've got the same thing that Bobby Jones (glofer not basketballer) was diagnosed with along with CRS. :shock:

          Tralfamidore, Trantor, Tantor...?? I'm losing sleep here. Can we have a clue?

            FWIW, it was Tralfamadore - that was the name of the planet Billy Pilgrim was taken to by aliens (and put into a zoo with a porn star).

              Jeez - 25 THOUSAND posts and the 'tude is still not ascertainable?
              To paraphrase a famous bad hammy quote - you'll know when I'm kidding by the fact that I'm posting.

                So was that a good thing or a bad thing?

                  Clue: Hari Seldon

                    Wasn't Trantor the seat of the galactic government in Asimov's Foundation trilogy? I haven't read it in about thirty years, but that seems to ring a bell.

                      Yes, and Hari Seldon was the original brains behind the Foundation.

                      OK, so a clue for Tantor: Cheetah.
