Another great show. I shall try to keep my Perv-quotient (I claim first use of the word in the geek/nerd lexicon) at a reasonable level. I agree with Eric about Mr. Lucas "fiddling" with the original content/context of the Star Wars films. Darth Vader doesn't need a voice to kill you, if he doesn't like you he just "chokes you out" and replaces you. I pulled my VHS tapes out and played the original trilogy, just the way they were meant to be seen.

Word: Perv-quotient

Definition: The level or degree of "perviness" (perviness: credit Donald Bell, Cnet Crave Podcast Ep 56) that a person possesses in contrast to others around him, or the situation they are currently in. A level or state of mind, whether real or imagined which manifest itself in thought, words or deeds designed to illicit a humorous or shocked response. An often misinterpreted level of sexual familiarity and disollusion of the established social contract experienced by the speaker in a given social setting.

Common usage:

-"Dude, if you don't lower your perv-quotient you'll never get another date with those High School girls...and you're 29"

-"Every time I see Sally in that tight blouse my perv-quotient goes off the chart."

-"My perv-quotient is no where near Charlie Sheen, Pee Wee Herman, or Bill Clinton...but you have to have heroes."
