Hey everyone, sorry about the delay but a new toy arrived from one of our suppliers yesterday and sparked a great idea that took much, much longer to do than we would have liked. Either way, here's this week's FINN FRIDAY. There's a link at the bottom of the viewer page that'll take you to a higher resolution (if you have high speed and want a better look). We hope you think it was worth the wait...
PS: There will no lexicon pages loaded until Monday so enjoy the weekend!

I need the address of a local MARWAYNE TECHNOLOGIES™ representative immediately, because that footage affected me even more deeply than the ballistic infomercial scene in MR. QUENTIN TARANTINO’S JACKIE BROWN™!
When a much anticipated box arrives with a new toy it's rather hard to contain this group. We were less than half an hour away from posting what will now be a later FINN FRIDAY webclusive when the box arrived, the desire to share it was uncontainable. That sort of energy, when focused correctly, pays off wonderfully.

Doubleplusgood, CITIZEN TOPPER!
It has been alleged that certain international defence contracts have come about from trawling www.titanrainbow.com, so I would not be surprised.
CAPTAIN JAMES BOND 007™ & Q Branch have led the way toward what technology we currently enjoy in The 21st Century, but I’ve been living with those books, films & comics for so long that I had taken it for granted until you pointed it out to me.
SIR SEAN CONNERY is The Definitive Incarnation of JAMES BOND 007™; you will get no argument from me on that score!

We can't forget to talk about Arthur C. Clarke and also Asimov. While their sci-fi idea's may have seemed far out for their time, some of these idea's are already developed and being used as we speak,if you have used a GPS or even a cell phone you can thank MSSR. Clarke for the idea of geosynchronious satellites. If you have ever slept on a waterbed you can also thank him for the idea. so in the future we may well see some of the idea's from this show being used also way to go guy's!!

SIR ARTHUR C. CLARKE & DOCTOR ISAAC ASIMOV are both acknowledged by me, although I have read more of the latter’s mystery works than his SF. The former’s CHILDHOOD’S END™ is 1 of my favourite SF stories of all time, & was also the first work of his that I ever read.
I was under the impression that the waterbed was conceived by MR. ROBERT ANSON HEINLEIN, however….
