Rodney McKay’s Dream "Jeopardy" Categories (Revised)

Yesterday, helenish posted one of her hugely entertaining essays about Stargate: Atlantis. In addition to speculating on the existence of a Craigslist-style online goods-for-cuddles barter system, and Elizabeth Weir’s reaction to same, she borrowed a concept from Douglas Coupland and came up with Dream Jeopardy Categories for John Sheppard and Ronon Dex. Inspired, I in turn commented with:

Rodney McKay’s Dream Jeopardy Categories
1. Idiot subordinates
2. Caffeine & theobromine: the stuff of life
3. Idiot superiors
4. "Science"-fiction (Please shut up about the flux capacitors)
5. Military babes
6. The many, many ways the universe is trying to kill me*
7. Cats

* This originally read, “My better instincts, and how they’re going to get me killed one day,” but when I recited the list to Lily she commented, “I would’ve thought citrus would be on there somewhere.” The new category encompasses Rodney’s health issues and his more heroic idiotic heroic impulses, as well as radiation and sundry irascible aliens.
