Sonic? [In reply to] Can't Post

Does the sonic screwdriver come with a user's manual? (Yes, but it's in Ancient Gallifreyan.)

Mjolner seems problematic; I doubt I could pick it up.

I figure [In reply to] Can't Post

the sonic screwdriver will mean I can make computers work quickly and smoothly every time (you know, the way they *should*) and connect up any tech to my smart TV without breaking a sweat.

Helping ward off alien invasions would be a bonus.

If I take the lariat of truth, [In reply to] Can't Post

and chuck it over the cricket world cup final umpires, does it remove one run from the opposition?

I'll take the Doctor's Swiss Army knife, thanks. [In reply to] Can't Post

Such a handy multi-gadget thingy. Whenever he takes out his sonic screwdriver, I feel like everything just might be ok.

Lariat of truth [In reply to] Can't Post

although then I'd have to figure out how to get close enough to certain . . . public figures . . . to use it.

welp, had to vote for the screwdriver [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually have Mjolnir (Nerf version, with which i threaten many things, like fickle computers)...

and some lightsabers, a favorite...

and I grew up wishing for a phaser... or was that photon torpedoes for my van???

I tried to make a few Elven cloaks...

I would fall off the hoverboard because I can't stand on an SUP either, (kayaks are easier)...

I would probably tie somebody up with the Lariat of Truth and leave them there....

What should really be on that list is a tardis...
