by David Dedrick on February 18, 2018

Hola, Sneakers! Welcome to another – probably late (sigh…) episode of Sneaky Dragon.

This week on the show: surprise guest; the history of the pool noodle, shark bait, vampire investment plans; waste products; long waits; surprised by a guest; cat facts and fat cats; vegan cheese tasting; Nexus past; Kat Burglar; boo to colourists; confounded by Veggie Tales; what is black garlic for; sad, rice cooker-less living; reducing Tucson embarrassment; Nina loves rocks; no rock puns zone; indecent whales’ teeth; remaking childhood favourites; problems with Star Trek: Next Generation; and, finally, hot dog!

Thanks for listening.

Oh, and here’s some information provided by Nina:

Here’s a picture of the Sonoran, the spicy hot dog Nina ate in Tucson, AZ:

The fantastic and fantastical list of names for Super Famicom’s 1994 game Fighting Baseball:

Nina’s Bobson Dugnutt tribute shirt (as well as her other designs) can be found here.

Here is a picture of some of the gems, minerals and/or rocks that Nina saw at the Rock and Gem Show:

And the smoky quartz she actually ended up buying:

(You can tell she’s pretty proud of it.)

And finally here is a picture of the “cheese” Nina bought at the Blue Heron Cheese Shop:

Our household finally got a rice cooker last year. I have to say it’s pretty awesome. It’s got settings for both white and brown rice and it has a time delay setting so if you’re going out, you can set it for whenever you want it to be ready. My sister is a Home Ec teacher at a high school with a lot of Asian-Canadian and International students and when a foods lab calls for them to cook rice in a pot on a stove, they’re all like, “You mean there are people (subtext: luddites) who cook rice in a pot on a stove?!”

It works so well, I’m annoyed I didn’t get one earlier. Now that I also know I can flavour the water things have gotten much better. I use this…

Never realized it until this Next Generation conversation, but really, if Data is a person, Moriarty counts as a person. And if he is, his ultimate fate of traveling for eternity through a screensaver is pretty cruel.

I went to a Rockin’ Mineral show once and met a cosplayer who had lines drawn on his face and wore a deerstalker cap. I asked him what he was dressed as and he said “Sedimentary, my dear Watson.”

Hey, thanks, Nathan! But you left out the word “self”.
