Which is more exciting, the return of Rael or the return of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer after his lonely trek with that pesky little dentist elf?
Shhh - don't tell anyone.
You don't need to see his identification.
These aren't the droids you're looking for.
He can go about his business.
Update: This isn't Rael, it's Rae1, we've been tricked!!!I still say it's really cheater_1.
There must be 50 ways to determine whether this is the real Rael or just a Laer.
Method #1: Ask Rae1/Rael/Laer to compose a poem and compare it with Rael's published canon.
I've just posted 3 in the Poets and Writers group.
I demand a DNA sample.
And a large sum of unmarked, non-sequential US dollars in a paper bag placed beside the third trash can in the west parking lot of Balboa Park between 2:00 and 2:17AM tonight.
This is a worrying development. Do you have a DNA sample from before that you can compare it with - or are you planning to clone Rael?
We'll have to send the away team back in time to see what Rael did while he wasn't at chess.com.
What puzzles me, given it was such an advanced civilization, is why the portal did not look more like this ...
Someone took down the christmas lights.
Which episode was that lighted portal from?
(I hope Rael wasn't hanging out with Joan Collins.)
It was an episode called "City on the Edge of Forever."
... and the other portal was from "All Our Yesterdays" ?
I thought it was the same episode! It might be a promo picture. Maybe Borgqueen will know.
Not quite, sadly, I don't remember all TOS episodes nearly enough... it was too long ago and I can't enjoy them that much now, I laugh too much at the "tech". I know TNG and Voyager pretty well though... and the movies of course.
He had a strange habit of sending me his old toothbrushes. I'm still trying to figure out what obscure literary allusion he was referencing.
To whomever left the paper bag in the west parking lot of Balboa Park at 2:09 AM last night, thanks, but next time let the ink dry before you stack the bills together.
