If I was a woman, I would not date H.R. Giger.

Is that because a Giger is a cross between a gorilla and a tiger?

No, it's because of the acid-spitting flesh devouring multitoothed penis analogues.

I thought most penises were analog. Digital's only second base, after all.

So since you are a man, you will date him?

Well, this puts my old roommate's web app to shame.

Needs more phalluses.

"Steve consists of approximately 60% water and 40% organic molecules, arranged in a configuration that is, among over things, capable of describing itself in this manner."

Steve doesn't have any bones?

There's a Breaking Bad episode you should watch.

The problem with this instrument is that it records a lot of phallus positives. Better calibration is clearly needed.

The analog penises were definitely warmer.

@dances_with_sneetches: Bones are made of organic polymers, that is, a organic molecules.

I nominate this for Best Pun of August 2012... it might even make the year-end finals.

I wouldn't date H.R. Geiger because his artwork was featured in the Bruce Willis movie Blind Date, and only one person gets to recover from that, and that's Bruce Willis.

Great Scott, that's cool!

The other Geiger/Willis connection is that Willis' default facial expression could be best described as "smug." More smug than other faces.

Willis is therefore a facesmugger.

Combining Giger art with rainbow Comic Sans was almost as discombobulating as that Staggering Beauty thing

Isn't Giger pronounced 'Geeger'? Like, rhyming with meager?

So it's a Giger Meter?

Giger - Molar tubes?

Yup. Back in the late 80s / early 90s, during some awards ceremony for his work on the Alien films, his ladyfriend who was accepting the award in his absence went off on the announcer who had pronounced it like 'Geiger'. Giger rhymes with eager, meager, and Pete Seeger.

Superego's Giger segments are a thing to behold.

Anyone interested in getting their own Geiger counter kit, check out Mighty Ohm, who designed this one.

I wandered around for a bit, until the proprietor asked me what I was looking for. I told him I needed a 1/2 scale human skeleton. He paused briefly, walked over to a shelf, picked up an unmarked white box and handed it to me

I have said as much in all of my Yelp reviews to date, but just to re-iterate, any American diner should expect at least this, if not more, before even *thinking* about tipping more than 15%.

I don't need a counter. If I see even one Giger on the alien planet, I'm out of there.
