You know what I never understood about the weeping angels? Why no one ever thought to pick them up in their frozen state and point them at one another. That way, when they started moving again, they would end up frozen.

I imagine they'd be quite heavy and difficult to move without a forklift...

It's all a matter of leverage. You don't really need to lift them as much as pivot them. And since they are considerably taller than they are wide, it seems leverage works in your favor.

Some medicine I'm taking for a cold had me waking up every hour to use the bathroom last night. For what it's worth, in the preceding piss dreams, I dealt with some weeping angels by pointing them at each other. Six times. Why can't I ever return to good dreams?

This guy is a bigger Dr Who fan than any of us:

Taken with my crappy iPhone camera. The plate holder reads "TARDIS - It's bigger on the inside".

Did you use leverage?

I still need to put the "My other car is a TARDIS" plate holder on my car.

Yup, managed to get down to 3 of them, which kept recurring in the last 5 dreams or so.

It would be bloody difficult to shift them without losing eye contact, though. You'd need a gang.

You need three people.

I drive a blue Honda Element, and many passengers remark "It's much roomier in here than I expected." Thus, I call it the CARDIS.

heh I've made the same joke about my Honda Fit.

I wanted to get a CARDIS licence plate for our Mini Countryman, for the same reason, but Absurd vetoed me.

I've thought about getting Police Box styled windshield decals, but I'm sure The Man would object to me putting the word "Police" on a vehicle.

If anyone asks, just say you are the SpacePPoliceman.

I've always thought that a couple of those Madagascar Cockroaches rich people were wearing as jewelry for a couple months several years ago would be the perfect Weeping Angel defense. They've got big Compound eyes and are physically unable to blink. Put a couple on each shoulder and you should be safe. When you find one you can build a whole insect Terrarrium around it.

They'd reprimand me for being outside my jurisdiction.

Are you currently outside of space-time? No? Then it's your jurisdiction!

When you go for a spin in the CARDIS, you don't know where you'll end up*.

*It's usually somewhere boozey.

License plate frame says "Rule #408 Time is not the boss of YOU."

I understand that Rose Tyler is the most popular of the modern companions, but I really like this Martha character.

No, Adam is the worst.
