Quote of the Day

Big Dipper & North Star

“Remember Dad, the handle of the Big Dipper points to the North Star.” – Lisa Simpson
“That’s nice, Lisa, but we’re not in astronomy class, we’re in the woods.” – Homer Simpson

Note: It’s actually the handle of the Little Dipper, but such things were a lot harder to look up in 1989.

    It’s actually the furthest two stars on the right-most part of the big dipper’s cup. They point towards the end of the little dipper’s handle.

      Yeah, Polaris is the last star in Ursa Minor. For some reason I was intent on keeping my note short to the point that I actually made it less clear than it should have been. Whoops.

    Not only would it be less easy to look up, but pretty much impossible to discuss like we are doing now (although, i guess there were BBSs at the time)

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
