Way, No Way

Before there was How I Met Your Mother, there was Friends. Thing is, I never watched Friends as a teen growing up in the 90’s. I know, I missed out. After falling in love with How I Met Your Mother and because everyone compared it to Friends (even the producers of HIMYM admit that it pays homage to Friends) I decided to give it a go.

It helped that my roommate owns the complete Friends series on DVD. So, about 2 years back I began my Friends education, starting with Season one. I’m currently on Season 5, and I admit, Friends is awesome stuff and I’m a bit ashamed that I missed out on this piece of pop culture growing up.

So what’s the point, you wonder? Well, I found out that there’s a Friends fanatic in the lab that I work at. He claims to have seen every episode from season 4 on at least three times. He likes to ask people random Friends Trivia. He has all of season 5 on his iPhone. Anyway, I overheard him asking some Friends trivia the other day, and surprisingly, I knew the answers (at least up to Season 5). I was stoked, and that actually made me want to watch even more episodes of Friends just so that I could come up with a good trivia question for our Friends fanatic.

The one With All The Thanksgivings was a great episode. Incidentally, that’s where I’m at now and what’s even better is that that episode is breading ground for good Friends trivia. So I came up with a question from that episode that actually stumped him. The question?

What was the name of Chandler’s band in college?

He didn’t get it! And I was so happy.

The Friendship Algorithm Flowchart

Infographics are all the rage on the Internet, but no one does it better than Dr. Sheldon Cooper of the Big Bang Theory.

It’s not surprising that when Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory decides he needs a new friend (Bawwy Kwipke, because of his wole with the Open Science Gwid Computew), he approaches the problem scientifically. Because we all occasionally need a little help doing that, we’ve reproduced his flowchart on this shirt. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to follow the arrows when you’re wearing it so you either need to convince an extant friend to wear this shirt with you (which can lead to awkward questions) or rig a series of mirrors. We recommend the mirrors. It involves fewer humans.

The Friendship Algorithm Flowchart T-Shirt is available now from ThinkGeek for $17.99.

Otters Holding Hands

The newest tee from Shirts Taste Good is too adorable to pass up! Be forewarned, the accompanying video of two otters floating around at the Vancouver Aquarium oozes cuteness and you will unleash an “awwwww” at some point during the viewing of the video – if not then you’re not human.

You can pick up Otters Holding Hands from Shirts Taste Good for the cheap price of $14.95 this week, after that it’s $17.95.
