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.

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

    I'll rephrase:

    Who do you think will win the French presidential election, Macron or Le Pen?

    Yes.

    So you don't think a giant extinction level asteroid will hit us first?

    There's evidence-based faith, and there's utterly blind faith.

    Of which, mine is based on historical evidence. The same could be said of jdryer's third point. Faith fills in the rest for both. I see one outcome, and other's see another. In either case, time ultimately determines which is correct.

    The main difference is that you believe that your faith defines reality, whereas the atheists / agnostics believe that whatever you think won't change reality.

    Sure, the planet will survive -- as a barren wasteland, devoid of all life -- but I'm sure it'll still keep orbiting the sun for another billion or so years. As I always like to say, "One man's paradise is another man's dead rock floating in space."

    Life is an STD that is hard to get rid off! Evolution is a master at spreading this STD.

    We have found life where we expected it to be impossible (e.g. close to black smokers). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcJlmpen4A0 I am sure that once life exists it is hard to get totally killed. Fungi, moss, lichens, bacteria - very hard to kill them all. But more complex lifeforms (especially those who cannot adapt very well to a changing habitat) will die much easier and earlier than simple lifeforms that adapt to almost every climate.

    And yet ... only on Earth.

    Interesting. Is your viewpoint based on anything you've learned or does it come from media (movies, video games, books, etc.)? Inquiring minds want to know. Smart
