"This Land" is a Firefly reference. Keavon (talk) 05:11, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Is there a pun I'm missing by spelling Kevin Costner as "Kostner"?

.. I almost feel like that titletext gives enough reason for there to be (some) pages about the What If? series, but ehhhh... Pixali (talk|contribs) 05:02, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

What is with Kepler-283? 05:09, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

283b is the phonetic spelling for Uranus (your-a-nus) and 283c is the phonetic spelling for Uranus (your-ay-nus) 05:33, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


I'm not 100% sure what "Novella" refers to, aside from the dictionary definition of the word (and if that's the case I'm unsure of the context), but in case it's not widely-known on this wiki, I want to suggest the possibility that it's a tribute to the Novella brothers, who are among the co-hosts of the popular science podcast The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe. - 04:43, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Seems like a cool podcast, sadly I don't have time to listen to 10 years Witt of podcasts. Any specific ones I should listen to and where should I start for new ones? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
Considering the sex-themed names Novella it is grouped with. I will assume it is a joke on 60/70's exploitation/B-movies, some of which had names or leadcharacters named something..-ella. In this case the prefix is just particularly confusing ;) 08:51, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
