Backstories in Code
Ian Urbina

The first password I ever remember using as a teenager was “boobala” and although you might think it had a strange tie to a more obvious boyhood obsession it was actually a catch phrase I got from my favorite Stargate SG1 episode. Season 3 episode 16, Urgo.

In the show, the character named Urgo could make food taste better than normal which would be the coolest thing ever! He would say “boobala” and make a popping noise with his mouth — I thought it was the funniest thing ever and it stuck.

To this day I wish there was a way to magically enhance the way food tastes. (Maybe I’d eat more veggies…)
