The only sci-fi movie, in the past decade, that I found worth sharing is called "The Man From Earth". Seen it?
It is an interesting film, I enjoyed it. Not a traditional sci-fi film though.
Caught the TOS episode "Requiem for Methuselah" recently and noticed it was written by Jerome Bixby, who also wrote "The Man from Earth". So, I went digging and found this on Memory Alpha --

"An element from Bixby's story – that of an immortal man who became several of Earth's historical figures – was mirrored in his final screenplay, which became the film The Man from Earth."

Awesome!

There are several of his short stories available for less than $1.00 on Kindle.

I'm a big fan of the science fiction megapacks. Thumbsup

The surface of Mars does not look red when you're on it.

Explained.

I'd talk to a real estate person or contractor that's had experience flipping houses and get his/her opinion on what is and isn't worth fixing up before you sell.

A real contractor will have insurance (that includes coverage of any employees), an authentic business license (ask for it and verify with the city), and a fictitious business name (meaning the person likely fills out a Schedule C, and properly reports business income and expenses via tax forms). Make sure he/she has all three items.

Upgraded to Cox "Panoramic WiFi".

Is this speed normal or should I expect it be faster?

I somewhat agree with the anti-theater sentiment. Last movie I saw in theaters was Interstellar. I'm not against movies, I just rarely feel any desire to go. Not even certain where a good one in NYC is, though in Seattle I went to the big one somewhat frequently, and the tiny alcoholic one quite frequently. Just not part of my social life here.

Not that I watch movies often. I check On Demand once a month or so and rarely see a movie listed that I'd give two hours to. This summer may just be Guardians 2, John Wick 2, and Kingsman 2... I see a theme...

Doctor Strange has some academic value.

Movie Theatre:

People coughing, people sniffling, people talking, people smelling, people texting, people crunching popcorn, people crinkling food wrappers, people slurping drinks, people's germs, shared restrooms, people's leftover trash, people's heads obstructing the view of the movie screen, people getting up and walking around.

Food and drink is expensive and typically 'junk food'.

Can't pause. Can't rewind. Can't stop and play at a later time. Can't rewatch without paying again. Can't enable subtitles. Can't adjust the volume. Can't adjust the screen. Can't change seating point of view, or screen angle. Can't cuddle with a loved one.

Home Theatre:

None of the above problems.

Yesterday was interesting. A waitress was walking around a building, looking for someone. She told me that a couple dine and dashed, and when she tried to stop them, the male pushed her out of the way.

So I called 911, and that's when it got real interesting...

About 5 to 6 police cars and a helicopter show up. The police got out their cars and roamed around on foot with guns drawn, to search for him. They finally arrest him.

The LA Sheriff department doesn't mess around. Bobby

Speaking of the Wolfenstein legacy, RTCW mainstreamed (Quake) Team Fortress and set a standard for all future FPS multiplayer titles.

Agree / Disagree? Inquisitive

Why did life seem so much better in the 90s?

  • People strived to be informed and educated.
  • Television shows and movies had intelligent dialogue.
  • Jobs were plenty, there wasn't enough people to fill the positions.
  • Companies believed in customer satisfaction.
  • Life felt prosperous, hopeful, and free-spirited.


  • For example: Back in those days, I used to fly to NY (Upper East Manhattan) on a regular basis. I remember voluntarily giving up my plane seat, a couple of times - due to overbooking - but only because I was offered first class on the next flight and given a $500+ credit.

    Gerrymandering Has a Solution After All—It's Called Math.

    I heard about this the other day on some radio show. Good stuff. Gerrymandering is a huge issue, as Republicans control the house and senate despite voters actually casting more votes for Dem candidates.

    We solved it. Thumbsup
