Happy 75th birthday to actor/comedian/musician Steve Martin! He played a sadistic dentist in Little Shop of Horrors (1986). What’s your relationship with your dentist like?

i think my dentist is trying to rip me off.  he keeps telling me i need invisalign.  i'm thinking about getting a second opinion before jumping in... or maybe i will continue to ignore him and not get any invisalign at all.  once i asked about regular braces (cheaper!) but he didn't really encourage it.
(however, i do like my hygienist!  it would be hard to leave her.)

Happy 65th birthday to comic strip artist Gary Larson, creator of The Far Side! One classic The Far Side strip illustrates literally the Platonic allegory of the Ship of Fools, followed by an illustration of his own concept of the Car of Idiots. When have you been a passenger in a car of idiots?

once, after a long day of speech and debate, we were all pretty tired on the car ride back and talking kind of loopy.
once, i was in the opposite situation- on the way home from asm general meeting 2013, i was in a shared supershuttle from the convention center to the colorado airport.  everyone there was from the conference.  i was in a van full of geniuses!  similarly, whenever we have the biannual hawaii asm meeting pretty much, every important microbiologist in the state sits down for dinner together.  i always wondered what would happen if we all ended up getting food poisoning, it would make a great newspaper headline!

Happy 55th birthday to basketball player Ervin “Magic” Johnson, who spent his whole career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers! What are your memories or impressions of Los Angeles?

LA is where disneyland is?  it's also where touché amoré is from and they are one of my favorite bands!  i always hope one day i can meet a famous person, let alone the creators of my favorite music.

Happy 50th birthday to actress Halle Berry, who plays Storm (a woman who can control the weather) in the X-Men movies! What’s the weather like right now, and if you could adjust one aspect of it for the weekend, what would it be?

here's what CARROT has to say about it:
