I Can Do it in the Water, I Can Do it On Dry Land, I Can Do it with Instruments, I Can Do it with My Own Bare Hands

After the kids go to bed, we usually try to catch up on some of recordings of the DVR (so worth that extra five bucks a month, you have no idea).

Last night we settled in to watch Eureka.

In case you haven't been wise enough to be watching Eureka, it's a show about ubber-smart nerds in a town that invents outrageous stuff working for the government. A "regular guy" and his teenage daughter stumble upon the town and he ends up being the sheriff. He's not a nerd but he is most certainly the town hero.

ANYWAY.

We were watching Eureka and one of the characters, Fargo, who always manages to fuck things up gets his hands on a Multi Application Combat Armour Alternative -- a personal force field generator.

Obviously, we watch the coolest shows.

So this personal force field encases Fargo and keeps growing. And growing. Growing so much it may take over the whole world. And it looks as though they are going to have to drop Fargo down a two mile deep hole with a bomb behind him.

Meanwhile, Aaron keeps yelling at the tv that Fargo? He needs to pee on the force field. Because his urine? Will totally short circuit the electrical field.



So, for about 40 minutes all I hear is, Pee on the force field, Fargo! and Damn it, dude, pee! and he's smacking his head and waving his arms and throwing massive hissy fits because that guy on tv is totally not listening to him.

Aaron goes into the semantics of the benefit of urine and how urine is so great and GOD DAMN IT, WHY IS HE NOT PEEING ON THE FORCE FIELD?!

Of course they figure out how to disarm the force field, which totally did not involve any urine.

Instead, it involved a demagnetizer that drained the battery and then when the backup battery started up that used Fargo's body heat they used a big stun gun to stop Fargo's heart from beating.

Duh

oh my goodness, i wish we got that show! it sounds lovely in all it's nerdiness. as it is, we've been watching macgyver on dvd checked out from the library.

ah, that macgyver, is there anything he can't do?

he certainly would have peed on the field, though.

Whew! I'm glad Aaron is smart. The next time I am swallowed up in a force field, I will DEFINITELY pee on it. No questions asked.

kristi said...

Ow. He should have just peed on the damn thing.

That is my motto for life...just pee on the force field :D I think someone must have already informed my son of that one!

It slays me that Aaron is smart enough to know how to short circuit a forcefield, but has yet to figure out that *the people on TV can't hear you*!

I LOVE THAT SHOW!!!! Seriously, Honey and I just watched the most recent ep on the Tivo. LOVE. Carter is the coolest and Fargo is an idiot and I want to know WTH Henry is up to cuz he's starting to scare me. And how does Debrah Farentino look so darned young?

cheryl said...

LMAO. Man you crack me up. Better than coffee! I have a thing with spit. My anser to everything is to spit on it. Maybe spit and urine have the same magical power. hmmmmmmmmmm.yep. Bodily fluids rock.

Michelle said...

That was hysterical.

Chara Michele said...

Yep, I am lost... Still you managed to make me laugh even though I have never seen this show (and don't even have a tv:)

Heather said...

We totally watch that show!! AND I know what episode you're talking about! WOOO! It's one of our favorite must see's around here!

TinkerBlue said...

I like Aaron's method better. Keep it simple.

You know tv would be so much better if force fields did stop when peed on. it just makes so much more sense - and like I'd want to have my heart stopped any time soon by a bunch of nutters :)
