As the universe is so unimaginably enormous, it can sometimes feel as though you are not getting the attention that you feel you deserve. So, in the meantime, Lets investigate how earthlings can bridge that gap, and make friends with the universe.

Congratulations to October’s winners who each receive an Alcorian invisibility cloak. The winning entries are;

  • ‘If you want to boldly go where no one has gone before… try the toilets on Starbase Delta 7, they stink! – Number 2 of the Battlestar Colonica as provided by Lynda Di Dopro
  • ‘Inconvenienced by changing your underwear on a daily basis? Save both time, energy and thought by dressing in seven pairs of socks and pants on a Sunday night, and then simply peeling one layer off at the end of each night until Saturday. Not only do you save valuable time, but your wash basket and underwear draw hinges get used less.’ – Captain Smirk of the Starship Improvise as provided by R G Walsh
