    I don't quite know where to post this but I wanted to share with you guys that last Friday I came across a Red Dwarf fan somewhere I least expected to.

    For those of you that don't know, I am a Primary School Teacher. In our RE topic we have been looking at how different religions believe the world began. Friday's lesson we were discussing [a very simplified version of] the Big Bang Theory. One child in my class (9 years old) put his hand up and said "Sir, I have a slightly different theory. I believe that when the big bang happened the universe got bigger and bigger, but then the universe will get smaller and smaller and everything will go backwards." I looked at him quite confused. I knew this child wouldn't have thought of that idea by himself, he must have gotten it from somewhere.

    "Have you been watching Red Dwarf?" I asked him.

    "Yes. I love it, it's my favourite show."

    Well there you go. Turned out this kid has been a Red Dwarf fan for years. Now he won't shut up about it to me!

    As much as I love Dwarf, I fear for the future of any child that gets their scientific education from this show... :eek:

    You mean some of the science stuff on RD is made up? I may have to rethink my world view ;-)

    What surprised me is that Patrick Stewart (of Star Trek Fame) is a big fan of the short rouge one.

    If he were on RD, what would he say? "Make it so-so."????:-D

    If he started talking about coords, the Cat would think he was talking about corderoy again.
