I love the world (xkcd)

(no subject)

Oh, my God. Tell me you're not that ignorant. Yes, many, if not most, Americans speak English--but that doesn't mean we're all English! Most Mexicans speak Spanish, but they're not Spanish--they're Mexican.

*facepalm* My family, folks.

DUDE! You can learn some great things when reading writer's drafts of scripts!

This is from the script for Ice Queen (NCIS pilot):

Team leader, NCIS SPECIAL AGENT LEROY JETHRO GIBBS (GIBBS) is riding the shotgun seat. Gibbs is an African-American Marine Gunnery Sergeant in his early 40's. A skilled investigator, Gibbs is smart, tough, and willing to bend the rules to get the job done. He still wears his hair short.

Oh, and this is the original Tony character:

Driving is SPECIAL AGENT HOAK ROCHA (HOAK), age 31. Hoak is a former Baltimore Homicide Detective who joined NCIS to build a career that would take him wherever the Navy goes. Hoak is handsome, likeable and has instincts that could only come from the streets.

How cool is that? Isn't it weird to see DPB's original visions of the characters? (And how much they've changed since he first wrote the pilot?)

This is from the blue script for Yankee White:

AGENT CAITLIN TODD (KATE), 30, has been on the Presidential detail a little over a year. Just as willing as Bill to take a bullet, she has a great sense of humor.

Not much to go on, but we do find out her age, and that her name really is Caitlin, and nickname is spelled "Kate". Ha! *blows raspberry at nitpickers* I was right, beyotches!

...Yeah, I am easily amused.
