No google. That didn't happen.
Unless moon landings continued well into the 80s and it's been a big secret.
That flotation joke from ST:Insurrection would have worked on "Red Dwarf", where the whole show is a series of jokes and there's no expectation that the audience will suspend their disbelief.
Not so much in a show that tries to present a believable story. You can't just wink at the audience like that.
I assume they've turned production of the show over to an AI by now.
Ok, so I just tried it.
(Sorry for not closing the blinds before taking photographs of a projector screen.)
Fantastic. This is how the game was meant to be played.
I think all Mastodon forks should be named after different ice-age mammals.
"Smilodon" sounds nice and happy. And it's logo would be a kitty!
I've never played Final Fantasy VII.
I'm excited to finally own a copy.
This should be good.
@CobaltVelvet I miss the olden days when every website indicated links the exact same way.
It was ugly as heck, but it was USEFUL.
I know that in USA we call autumn "fall". And that's fine. I grew up here so that seems perfectly normal to me.
But I have to admit that it still sounds weird when people say things like "In the fall of 1995".
Oh, right. The Fall of 1995, when mighty civilizations fell and reduced us to the stone age. How could I forget?
@emdeesee Is this some sort of concern about wood out-gassing and screwing up the paper?
@taweret That's absurd. The Jem'Hadar answer only to The Founders.
@taweret It's worse in video games.
Someone has told all the makers of low-budget horror games that a bobbing camera is SCAAARY.
So all the Silent-Hill Wanna-be games on steam bounce the camera around like the player is drunk on a pogo stick.
Have you tried "Andromeda" yet?
I look forward to you live-tooting the pilot episode only mildly annoyed, and then rage-tooting the rest of the series.
@taweret I didn't say they were must-see TV.
But they were two perfectly good episodes.
Also "Terra Nova". I don't remember the ending to that one, so it was probably boring, but the set up was good. Classic Sci-fi.
So that's two and a half.
@taweret It's got a zombie episode, and an Old West episode.
That's two whole episodes that are worth watching.
Don't be greedy.
@taweret I assume that Dr Bashir used the same technique to replace O'Brien's molar after he was captured by Cardassians.
RT @apLundell Everyone knows that the traditional formula for whether or not it's creepy to bang someone younger than you is "Half your age plus seven".
Through simple algebra, we can determine that if you cloned yourself this year, it would be creepy to bang the clone until the clone's age is your current age plus fourteen.
Lovely, after opting out a few months ago. Twitter has just switched my account back to their new user interface.
And you can't opt-out anymore.
And of course, their algorithmic feed is now mandatory. (You can only switch back to a real feed temporarily.)
Imagine if the Prince of Nigeria really did need someone to take possession of his family fortune, and he's been fruitlessly sending out desperate emails since 1996.
He must be so frustrated by now.
I only reply to people if I can help them out by explaining a fact I just learned from the very first google result about the thing they've been talking about all afternoon.
