By the way, shouldn't the fact that there is no beep between the video game slide and the THREE O' DEMS slide be a remark, or possibly a goof?  (I already changed this, but feel free to revert it if you want to.) -[[User:RadSkat3|RadSkat3]]

::: Maybe it's both a Pantera and a satellite industry reference? The tendency on this wiki is to narrow down references to single instances. TBC are not that unidimensional.[[User:Vl-tone|Vl-tone]] 08:05, 16 November 2005 (UTC)

:: Just for posterity, I'm noting here that this has been pretty much resolved by the point of [[cliffhangers]], which contains references to Yngwie Malmsteen, "Humbuckers", and "Tabulature" in its "space program"-related section. They're all guitar-related, as are Joe Satriani and Chris Impellitteri. Oddly enough, Phil Anselmo is ''not'' known for playing guitar, but it still fits in the general theme.

::::I would just like to point out that having grown up in western Nebraska and driven through Anselmo more times than I care to remember, I think you could probably safely cross the "city in Nebraska" off the list, although I'm sure it was a joke.  And, for anyone that disagrees, look [http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=anselmo+nebraska&ie=UTF8&ll=41.619998,-99.862761&spn=0.01864,0.029097&z=15&om=1 no further].  --[[User:Duke33|Duke33]] 16:42, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm waiting for someone to say that the opening song, "Email is the sound that we make when a young girl cries," is a reference to something. Is it simply to [[Wikipedia:When Doves Cry|When Doves Cry]]? I suspect not.

I wasn't aware of this discussion when I saw the item in the fun facts, and I removed the mention. Now that I see this thread, I should at least justify my reasoning: as mentioned way above, ''downstairs'' can function as an adverb meaning "down the stairs" (by the way, dictionary.com is not a reference; the source quoted is actually the ''American Heritage Dictionary''). Hence, a body falling down the stairs is falling downstairs. It really doesn't matter that ''downstairs'' can mean any of the other things it means or that "down some stairs" might have been a better way to put it. The fact is that TBC's usage is correct and therefore unremarkable. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 19:43, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

I just throught that it was what I have come to call a Strongbadism. Strange combinations of words and spellings that mostly appears is connection with Strong Bad, such as "Tish, you", "Please to be putting on more clothes" and so on. [[User:Lord-z|Lord-z]] 20:44, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

== not-for-profit vs. non-profit. ==

''re: [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=space_program&oldid=318152 this edit], which was revised then reverted;''
 
-

I left the phrase "non-profit" intact because it's the most common version, and because it's the quickest route to the relevant wikipedia article.  However, I felt that it was important to include the note about the phrase "not-for-profit" meaning the same thing, not for the sake of completeness, or because it's also fairly common (which it is), but because I felt that it should be mentioned since the phrasing used in the email itself is "definitely-for-profit".  I'll leave it for now because I don't want to start an edit war, I just wanted to state my case. - [[User:Uglinessman|Uglinessman]] 20:35, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

:That's understandable; at first I agreed with you. But I noticed the wikipedia link offers several different versions, including "nonprofit", "not-for-profit", "non-profit", and "NPO". There's no reason to mention all of them. However you've made a good case. I can't speak for all editors, but if you want to change it back again I won't revert it. {{User:Thunderbird L17/Siggie}} 20:40, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

== The Last Starfighter ==

The idea of being good enough at video games to be an astronaut might come from the scifi movie The Last Starfighter where a trailer park slacker beats an arcade machine and is recrutied as the savior of an alien race. Anybody else notice that? <br>-[[User:*_Aaron_*]]

*The "Body Falling Down Stairs" sound effect is actually from (or the same one used by) the end of Blink 182's Cheshire Cat album, at the end of the song "Depends."

As of this timestamp, there are several links in the spoken dialogue (in the DVD commentary). Looking at it makes me realize why we don't do that. I don't have time to fix it now, so I'm posting here to remind myself for later or in case someone else wants to take care of it. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 20:58, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

The Childrens, being very big fans of the United States are shocked to see no one has put in the plain ol' fact that the same Martin Van Buren bust from The Cheat's "Characters" video was used as a hood ornament.
