I thank you.
Put it on my Samsung TV too please...
Re: Two I consider modern Sci-Fi classics
- "Focking prawn"
Re: Bicentennial Man
- such a touching film. I always thought it would be a difficult transition from the book. I was wrong.
Re: OK, so maybe not a classic but...
- I really enjoyed Brainstorm - thanks for the memory jogger. I should have recorded it instead!
Re: Primer, of course...
- I'll throw in a vote for Cube. Brilliant idea and can I just say - IMHO Australia consistently makes brilliant Sci-Fi - think Pitch Black, Mad Max, Dark City hmm? Hmm?
Re: Good choice..
- me too "Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse."
The main Moon
What about Moon? A truly original story brilliantly made and Sam Rockwell carrying the whole thing.
Re: Silent Running
+1 for Silent Running - it made me cry too
+1 for Soylent Green - Soylent Green is people
But what about Akira - or are we keeping away from Anime?
Earl Grey Drinkers should be shot
Drinking perfume is for tramps. Bewleys Irish Breakfast tea is the tea of proper tea drinkers. It will dissolve your teaspoon at 6 paces.
Blending your own tea is only a "light on your feet" hop skip and jump away from drinking coffee, unless you do it for a living.
Consider his blue brother
Have you though about asking his brother to take his place? He might not be as well trained but he has a strong heart and there is the 50% weight saving to be considered?
Re: Females only?
...it is a very small chopper
Purportedly invented by Archimedes recent research has shown. So it must be good.
Put them all in a fight together
No help from Q branch and see who comes out top.
My money is on George L. beating Daniel C. in the final round.
He nailed a princess for heavens sake!
David Niven should get a mention or is this piece being sponsored by EON?
Just the tip, just for a bit.
Just a thought, but you only need to heat the ignition area, and this could be brought up to temp shortly before launch. So less kit needed, less kit=less weight.
Re: Vane in vain?
Assuming you need only a slight differential in wind speeds to provide the weather vane effect, why not put a small drogue 'chute on the end of the truss to act as a wind anchor rather than a vane
The tether for this should be long enough so that the amount of movement in the drogue is less apparent at the attachment point.
Prison did him good
A few years ago, I saw an old friend of mine in the pub whom I had not seen for a couple of years. He was looking trim and a lot happier than I had seen him in many years.
Wondering why I had not seen him for so long, he explained that the manager/owner of the poxy little insurance company he was working at since leaving school had finally pushed him too far.
[name removed under legal advice] had worked his arse off for this place for several years and even took on the roll of system admin/manager because the boss was too cheap to employ one. Working constant late nights, weekends etc. and never recognised for the value he added to the company, meanwhile the nagging boss kept pushing him harder and harder.
So one night, he poured petrol through the letter box and set fire to it, eventually burning most of the building to the ground.
"How did the police know it was you?" I asked.
"I was waiting for them outside watching it burn" he replied.
I often think that 18months was probably worth the satisfaction in knowing that the boss knew not only who did it but why.
I am probably not alone in thinking that Snakes on a Plane is a comedy masterpiece.
Bad News - did you know that this Comic Strip Presents classic actually came out before Spinal Tap?
Mr Jolly Lives next door has to be one of the best films of all time. "Nicolas bloody Parsons!"
So the police spend their day checking out Facebook? Tax money well spent - why is it not blocked in this particular station? Is Facebook data mined by the police these days to pick out people who say "nasty" things about them/government/photographers?
200 quid to fly a chopper? Well I'll book it for a week please, and maybe the iPolice can share the secrets of flying for so cheap - I am sure BA would be interested.
God help you all - all you Bored Brits waiting in damp queues to complain about the lenth of the queue.
I would go on but I am going to the beach now with glass bottles of COLD beer.
Incredible powers of deduction here;
"Using a pair of nail clippers must have caused excruciating pain, even if he had had a few drinks beforehand."
No shit Sherlock!
