Yes, true, Deb.
Lisa, here is precisely how this would go with Dan and the Ferengi straws:
Jill - "that Ferengi drink holder has a clockwise spiral design in it, so the liquid spirals clockwise as it comes down towards your mouth. Do you think if they had them in Australia that they'd have to use counter-clockwise spirals to get it to work right?"
Dan - "actually that is a myth about how things go counterclockwise in Australia."
Jill - "but if you were on Fereginar, then it might not work and you'd have a big scene full of angry Cardassian patrons with faces full of romulan ale. They would have to ask the Klingon bouncers to step in before an interstellar war erupted!"
Dan - "I don't think you would have a situation where the straw would back up. According to the Wickipedia, the coreolis effect would actually blah blah blah blah blah."
Jill - "You know, you are a Vulcan."
Not that we are even talking about complaining in this particular scenario, but darn how do i get him to just PLAY with me and not CORRECT me?
