My Wikipedia Contrail

Ach! A meme! Run for yor lives! Following the lead of such luminaries as Mr Webb and Mr Coates, here is what appears when I type into my browser (at work, it will be different at home). They’ve called it their ‘contrail‘ and so shall I. All links to descriptions of ‘Methods of Torture’ and ‘Races in the Star Wars Universe’ have been removed, in case they skew the results.

  • 1-K_pot – cryogenics device to bring things down to 1 Kelvin. I was researching adiabatic cooling, and came across this.
  • Adiabatic_process – Cooling method using fine water mist, something I’m involved with on the Tube at the moment.
  • Admiral_Ackbar – “It’s a trap!”
  • Air_(band) – I needed a link for this post.
  • Amdram – I added this entry to point to Community Theatre. It is my hobby, after all.
  • Asterix – I was curious about different foreign spellings of the character names, and couldn’t remember the names of the writers.
  • Churros – These were on sale at the Cuban festival on the South Bank a couple of weeks ago.
  • Bad_Taste – Can’t remember why I was looking at this.
  • Bernard_Gui – While playing Arturo Ui recently, I kept being reminded of the line, “The devil I renounce is you, Bernardo Gui!” from The Name Of The Rose.
  • Ecumenopolis – Some trail about future cities led me to this.
  • Boris_Karloff – Watched Ed Wood the other day, and wanted to read more about Lugosi’s rival.
  • Evaporative_cooling – Work related reasearch for the Tube again.
  • Exploding_sheep – Not entirely sure what led me to read about this meme, but it seems to crop up again and again.
  • Goth – Just to refresh my knowledge, really.
  • HA!_HA!_guy – I wanted to find the poster generator for this, and I succeeded.
  • James_Horner – It’s surprising what he’s done actually. I love the soundtrack to Battle Beyond The Stars.
  • Jeff_Minter – It’s surprising what he’s done as well. My favourite was Metagalactic Llamas Battle at the Edge of Time for the VIC20.
  • Kardashev_scale – Ah yes, more futurology research. This is what happens when you read books by Charles Stross.
  • Marburg_(virus) – “Lovely stuff!”
  • Polo_(mint) – I was hungry.
  • Paradigm_shift – Again with the future stuff. I was trying to find ways to explain The Singularity to Mairi.
  • Seed_AI – See above.
  • Technological_singularity – See above.

And that’s yer lot. This contrail was built up over the course of the last 4 months, in early 2006. Anyone else?
