Out of the Blue

Well we arrived safe-and-sound after a lengthy flight (we had to wait out a bit of a traffic jam taking off from JFK). While I am still more on New York time, I still could not quite beat Noon with this update, hence the midday links.

Noonish Links! Thanks Ant.
Link of the Midday: Urban Dictionary: Bluetool. Thanks Ralph.
Story: Galactica Last Season Official.
Science!: Scientists create 'plastic' blood. Thanks Mike Martinez.
NASA unveils Hubble's successor. Thanks Mike Martinez.
Profit in Motion: Tiny Sensors Take Off.
Media: A Crafty War of the World. NSFW. Thanks Steve.
Follow-up: Cremated Remains of 200 Lost in Mountains After Trip to Space. Thanks Mike Martinez.

I hoped season 4 would be the last and not because I think the show started to suck. With season 4 being the last one they can finish this grand story arc without having stretched the material too thin - I think this show will now forever be one of the finest shows ever made.

I managed to hold out for 50 seconds before his shitty voice made me turn it off.

As for BSG - some shows cry out to go on and on some need to have an ending. Right now BSG (and Lost) need to be over. Still love BSG but it just can't go on and on with the same people shouting at each other week after week, particularly after the revelation at the end of the last series.

Let's hope they have an independant check of the mirror optics, unlike the complete balls-up last time.

C'mon, don't tell me you buy that, "we didn't check the mirrors" line? Some people will say the truth is they sent Hubble up broken as an excuse to send astronauts to Hubble to download and add new spy cameras but the real, actually truth is the original Hubble worked too well. When the 'scope was pointed at the center of the universe they had this perfect resolution of a single, unblinking eye looking back at us.

It was too scary so they had to actually send astronauts up to break the Hubble so it didn't work so well.

You can be sure they won't make that mistake again.

For some wholesome family fun, gather the clan around the computer and read aloud all of the terms that start with the word "Cleveland"

Wow - - there must be some serious Cleveland haters out there. Almost all of those equate Cleveland with some type of feces ...

Or for something similarly foul, look up terms starting with Gorilla.

Damn, just found out Amy Winehouse is doing two - sigh, sold-out - shows in town this weekend. Maybe I can score some tix anyway.

I really hate phrases and assumptions like that Bluetool crap. Is it so hard to believe that someone has such a thing because it's convenient for them? Because it's actually legal?? It's illegal to talk on a mobile phone while driving here, but it's allowed with a hands free kit or a bluetooth headset. Same goes for things like driving a sports car. No, I don't drive a sports car because I feel inadequate, I drive one* because it's a fucking nice car and it's my fucking money - why do you knock it? Does it make you feel inadequate that you can't get one, or are you just a dick?

* OK, *I* don't drive a sports car, but I'm just making a point.

Geez you guys are harsh. Aren't you concerned that you might hurt nin's feelings?

Ok, after insulting both of you, I am now going to ask for help again.

All NetFlix users, pretty please add this to your save Que:
http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Farscape_Season_1/60030712
Pretty please.
They have all the other seasons, but I want to start with 1. Why they would get all of them but the first season, is retarded. The more people that it is in the Save Que, the faster they will get it! Then once they have it, if you are not interested just remove it from your rental Que (it will be put into the very bottom automatically once they get it).

Pretty please. I love you long time.

Hopefully Eureka will come back from the missing...

Season 2 starts in July.
I really enjoyed that show as well, nothing was great about it, just enjoyable.
