    A bit like this?
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    "Does my dog love me ?" (in S&T)

    I read it correctly, but every time I see the title, I hear Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther movie asking "Does your dog bite?".

    Not a thread title, but...

    While leafing through my course text book Forensic Science, I came across a case study: "The conviction of Justin Barber." Just for one joyous second, I thought it was someone with a similar name.

    "Called for Jury Duty" in BABBling. It always ends up as "Call Of Duty" somewhere along the way.

    Not a misreading, but I couldn't help but notice that in SMAL, "RCH appearance on coast to coast AM" is directly below "The Weird Stuff".

    Every time I see Closetgeek's OTB thread " How Do I Defend Myself?" I think of a maniac with a banana and a 16 ton weight.

    For some reason when I saw the first part of "Curiosity EDL - Seven Minutes..." I thought it would end "in heaven".

    I know the "Sticky New Member" thread has been there awhile, but I still chuckle when I read it. It must be the 12 year old in me.

    Okay, this one is plain stupid:

    "Will the olympics ever include cannibal 'diving'?"

    I just read "What are you reading" as "What are you wearing"?

    Adds a different tone to the question.

    There's a recent one that is always listed in truncated form:
    "Will the Olympics ever ..."
    I was sure that the missing conclusion would be " ... End?", but it wasn't.

    Actually, when I first saw that, I thought it meant Nessie had formerly engaged in discussions in which she pointed out Conspiracy Theorists' errors, but she doesn't do it any more.

    Its true, Nessie used to post here regularly, under the user-name "Humphrey".
