I've gotten this restart message 2-3 times on the last couple of weeks?

Why is the picture upside down?

Anyways, it's the Mac equivalent of the Blue Screen of Death. It probably means you have some serious software problems, or some of your hardware, eg. RAM, is starting to fail.

What OS are you rollin'?

I've gotten 1 kernel panic out of nowhere on Lion.

I have a feeling this has to do with a specific application you're using. Check your logs. Or Ram/Hardware.

Ahh that explains a lot of things,Lion is unstable,I still suggest getting it shown if it happens basically every week.
It explains nothing. I've been using Lion from Day 1, and I've never gotten a single kernel panic. I have the same laptop OP has. Lion isn't unstable. While I've seen lots of problems online, I know quite a few people who have Lion and not a single one has had instability issues.

Are you using any accessories, such as USB drives, at the time it happens?

Just trying to narrow down causes here - as that's most certainly not normal.

In what way is it unstable? I run it on 3 computers and I've never had a kernel panic.

The most likely explanation for the OP is that he may have hardware that is on its way out.
