I'm only half tongue in cheek when I say your last joke here kind of excludes the majority of bisexuals who are just as sexually frustrated as everyone else (albeit for twice as many people). It was a novelty when Captain Jack did it, but now I'm getting kinda bored of the sexy-fucks-everything-bisexual. Where are the… » 2/26/15 4:34pm Thursday 4:34pm

The computers will get more powerful, the simulations will get more detailed, until one day someone says "What if we did a Civ 10k game, but changed the AI to make all the world leaders short-sighted psychopaths or idiots?"

And that simulation is where you live right now. » 2/26/15 3:54am Thursday 3:54am

But that's the great thing about bringing Spider-Man into MCU. On his own he's The One True Superhero, the only guy out there fighting the baddies who is strong and fast enough to go toe to toe with them. Bring him into the MCU and you've got a guy with a wardrobe full of super-powered mech suits, a Viking God, a… » 2/10/15 6:02am 2/10/15 6:02am

While that's true, Star Trek Deep Space Nine needed the Rodenberrytopian Star Trek TNG to contrast against. Even when Deep Space Nine was at its most gritty, the characters were still humans from this Utopian, post-scarcity world.

As a kid I always wanted to be a scientist - scientist being a word I had heard primarily in Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and Doctor Who. Eventually I realised science was hard and went into writing instead, although I've given talks on time travel, zombies, forcefields and brains in jars, and when I give those… » 2/03/15 7:23am 2/03/15 7:23am

NO. Mental illness isn't the seed of greatness. It's an illness that affects people from every walk of life. It makes your life a misery. Sometimes it will make the life of a great artist, politician, or novelist a misery. It won't make them great, because mentall illness isn't magic.

This is a dangerous,… » 1/25/15 11:49am 1/25/15 11:49am

Well, overall, this actually counts as an even numbered movie. But it doesn't really matter as the "Even numbered=Good/Odd numbered=Crap" rule hasn't really applied since Star Trek: Nemesis decreed that from now on, all Star Trek movies would be shit. » 1/21/15 11:24pm 1/21/15 11:24pm

It's not "crying wolf" when it's y'know, actually happening. Species are dying off in droves. Extreme weather conditions are on the up. The rainforests and the ice at the poles are both getting smaller. Various security agencies (a demographic not known from spooning with trees) are warning that conflict over… » 1/19/15 1:54am 1/19/15 1:54am
