The past few comments I have made have had some science fiction references in them, and people have played "name the reference". Since I post fairly regularly to Slashdot, I've decided to formalize the contest. The references will be from science fiction, fantasy or other "geek" generes, and be scattered among various media, including movies, television, comics, and pulled heavily from literature, from golden age SF to modern publications.
I have no idea if anybody will play, but it's something that would amuse me, so without further preamble, here is the first article with a partially identified set of references: "I Wish".
(Oh, and I'd suggest that you post here, as posting in the article might be a good way to lose Karma).
