You call yourselves nerds?

Last Thursday (or as Thursday was migrating into Friday), I was revelling in the Frazetta covers collage posted at BoingBoing and discussing how Conan the Barbarian (1982) was a truly great swords & sandals movie with Natalie Willoughby (Leia Shot First, which she did), when I saw that Conan the Barbarian was on TV.

Graduate students are infinitely more barbaric than post-docs.  Third and finally, as far as the Internet is concerned, Conan the Barbarian only has two lines of dialogue:Screenshot 2014-07-20 20.24.46
