    Actually i do, i live in Japan, haha...

Anywayz, in many alleys, there are vending machines for porn and such, it was really kind of weird though, my friend bought a magazine during the September 11 crisis thing, and was checked at the gate to get on base, and the dude looked at him weird, but he didn't do anything about it... I was laughing so hard...

    i love 100 yen stores! i go to them to buy nail polish!

    You know what's really freaky though? is the doujinshi shops. I was forced to one with my ex-boyfriend and oh man...they're scary.

    I spent so much money on vending machines buying aquarius...i love aquarius more than anything!

    To get this thread On-Topic

    I've been having this question for ages but couldn't find an answer by myself.

    Was McKay's first name ever mentioned on Stargate SG-1? I couldn't find any reference to his name there. Or did the writers just make up a first name for him for Atlantis? I think "Rodney" fits somehow.

    I don't think his name was ever mentioned on the episodes he appeared on SG-1. They mainly just called him McKay or in Carter's perspective someone who is very annoying

    My guess is that it was made just for Atlantis

    What's so weird is, I could have sworn I'd heard his first name mentioned... But it must have been my imagination.

    of course...make Mckay look dorky in his atlantis uniform...

    that uniform makes him look fat! SG-1 uniforms would look thinner on him!

    he needs something to make you wanna say "look hat him! he's smart! and seksay!"

    You aren't alone in that. I'd swear he introduced himself to Carter as "Call me Rodney" or something, but it doesn't seem to be in the transcripts...

    Like the Rodney name.Kinda fits the image I have of Dr McKay.

    Loved the chemistry between McKay and Sam Carter.

    (Really hoping for great things for David Hewlett too! )

    Main hope is that the SGA Team "Gels",and that RM becomes a fully developed character,and is truly valued by the writers etc.......IMO,he's got a pretty good chance of becoming my fave already!

    The chemistry was great and clever. Not too much, yet not too little

    Nope... I even watched all his scenes in 48 Hours and Redemption yesterday. Nada.

    So... We are absolutely positive there was no 'introducing of the first name'?

    Ok,I've been doing some checking up on the source of McKay gaining his first name.....

    Source:"Stargate SG-1:The Illustrated Companion S5/6" by Thomasina Gibson.

    Just listed as Dr McKay in her section about "48 Hours".

    Listed as Dr McKay in the Cast/Char.box.

    However, in her plot expo below,TG specifically calls him "Rodney McKay".

    Obviously not just an invention for SG Atlantis,then.I'm quoting from a 1st ed.
    copy,print date:June 2003.

    These Companion Books are fully authorised,etc,...so hopefully that bit of info may help !

    Either that settles it,or else her text was "tweaked"!

    Can't see T.Gibson letting that happen,just to name "Rodney" for Atlantis,though...........

    So: Although his first name was not mentioned in the episodes he were on, the writers did have a name for him back then. Well, now we know.

    Yep!

    Unless anyone has different info,TG's books are about as reliable a source as we're likely to find.

    (Can't vouch for "magazine" sources though. They've written up interviews and other info, incorrectly about Stargate SG-1 and the cast...and other shows too... )

    Well... Not always. I believe one of her books repeatedly stated that the Tollan were one of the Four Races.

    I think there were other glaring errors as well, but I can't remember. It's been a while since I read that book.

    See! Even TG is fallible! I spotted some Goofs too.

    She did have Rodney's name right,though,LOL.
