BNL Is the Villan in WALL-E

Posted in humor, physics on July 4, 2008 by Mike Procario

I went to see the new Pixar movie, WALL-E, last night. I throughly enjoyed it. The villan of the movie was a corporation, Buy N Large, which makes Walmart look like a boutique shop. It is abbrievated all throughout the movie as BNL. I hope my friends from Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) don’t take it personally.
