Ok, so maybe I've been watching too much BSG lately and I know the spelling isn't the same, but this headline just had me in stitches...

"Fracking 'likely cause' of quakes"
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-15550458

Of course, I had to share the fun.

Fracking has been a big topic of discussion in the states for the last several years.

But yeah, I admit I chuckle every time I hear it.

"Goram it kid, let's frak this thing and go home! Engage!"

When DT first mentioned "fracking" I was really confused because the only place I'd heard the word was on BSG and so contextually I was ... really confused. It took me a while to figure out what was going on.

Me too! So glad to know I'm not the only one. Being a sci-fi fan can really mess with the real world sometimes.
