So many questions about karma... I just need to know, how we trade our karma in for nifty prizes, like Nooks and stuff?

First you have to purchase the official MR booklets to paste your Karma points into - and then find the hidden post listing the prizes you can redeem your Karma points for (last time I looked it was heading for the wormhole leading to the Delta Quadrant). So shipping & handling costs can be a wee bit inflated.

Easy Peasy! Start enjoying those wonderful gifts (whatever & wherever they are) as soon as you fill up your first booklet.

I think the lowest level prize allows me to log in 24 hours a day, and track posts that I'm interested in.

I heard I need 1,000,000 KP for my first prize.

Aside from the fact that each booklet holds 1000 KP, and I have to order booklets separately, and I have to paste KP into the booklets one KP at a time, and I can't use a sponge, I have to lick each KP, and I get electron fuzz on my tongue, and I'm not quite sure sure what the first prize even is, this may take longer than I thought.

How many points for a Nook 2?

You would have to ask the Karma gods - which would involve traveling to the mountain tops in a distant galaxy (no they don't have cable yet) light years away. (Drop us a post card when you get there!)

Here's the question...
My blocks of geekness indicator now says "Klaatu Barada Niktu!" Is that Klingon? And can anyone translate? I apparantly am not yet geeky enough understand this language.
(okay, it's two questions)

Did you ever see the movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still?" (hint hint)

And - congrats on your karma! Geeks unlimited!

Old one? ... probably ages ago when I had a good memory.
New one? ... it's in my Netflix Queue. Guess I'll have to push it up to the top!

There is the original version (from the 50's) with Michael Rennie - watch this one! Pay attention to how they communicate with the robot.

Is it just Karma, or is there Kudos too?

I Spit on Your Karma



"I don't care to belong to any club that will have me as a member." -- Groucho Marx

“I'd never join a club that would allow a person like me to become a member.” -- Woody Allen

I was proud when the ratio of my posts to my karma was below 1.0. Now some well meaning person has totally upset the apple cart and bolluxed that ratio. I may have to make 1000 posts in the next week just to restore the balance. Even my fellow contrarian, Yuga, has a lopsided ratio. How can I hope to attain amateur contrarian status if I am assaulted with random acts of kindness? Moderator: Please begin instituting negative karma points, or if that is not possible, give each individual the power to add negative points to his/her own karma. I have worked very hard in my life to become a stuffshirt, and A Very Serious Man. Shirley, this was for naught.

“To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.” -- Woody again
