    I think Dad was eighteen when it came out. Does that mean he has to go to jail?
  2. This Day In History

    The Tea Party is waiting for you with open arms! Well when Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler defended Roy Moore for sexually molesting a fourteen year old girl, he compared it to the Immaculate Conception. So there you go. Since children are free of sins, they are perfect to have sex with, this seems to say. This could explain why so many Catholic priests seem happy to boink the children of their congregations and why senior Catholic clergy work so vigorously to defend and enable them. So did they do a cover of "Ice, Ice, Baby"?

    Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?
  4. Things that make you sad.

    [Content note: Pet illness.] My wife's cat Saki is struggling with a very serious infection. Saki was born with a noticeable overbite and it has made her very prone to infections in her mouth and throat. She has been on Prednisol treatments for a rather long time now, something which concerned her vet because of long term issues but alternate treatment methods did not yield good results and without it the poor thing was just so miserable. We have been aware that this might shorten Saki's life but accepted the tradeoff so she would at least have a good life until her time came. We just hadn't expected that it might come this fast. She might still survive for now, but right now it isn't looking good. Both I and my wife are stressing over this and I've had some trouble sleeping.
  5. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Good. Stay lucky in the second part, too, okay?
  6. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    It did. But you know what? What I am really happy about is that you are okay. I don't know what motivated that nurse -- possibly she had dealt with a similar case that turned out to be something much worse -- but at least she had priority number one on mind, namely your health and safety. I hope this won't cost you a fortune and that you stay all right.
  7. Things That Are Just Annoying

    Surely you must mean while on the sundial. And of course not, Pharaoh.
  8. This Day In History

    Still sounds better to me than having Rudy Giuliani around. That explains the name. Given that they quit the first location, I mean. "We quit. Take two. Qui Two." The freed slaves all weep bitter tears, I am sure. It is never a good idea to mess with Finns. These people are scary. Oh come on, they made it in time after all. Well now there is concentration camps for evil immigrant children. Never again shall they menace the land of the free and the brave by yelling, running around and playing. "Bohupwhatswana? Oh, Bohupthatswana." And now it is precipitously abandoning allies and fleeing bases for the Russians to take over and hold. A very good thing that Putin is such a reliable and trustworthy man unlike all these evil democracies and NATO countries. Thank goodness we have the GRU now that the USA's own intelligence agencies can no longer be relied on to act in the best interest of the US!

  10. Story Monday December 2, 2019

    Bingo!
  11. Story Monday December 2, 2019

    Some of that is assumptive. Maybe that is not what the General was doing. It might have been Lord Tedd's original plan to just provoke other Tedds into seeking strength and the anger in the 2002 drawings could well belong in the 2002 plot pothole. The General might be urging Lord Tedd to be more aggressive, to cause more damage and casualties against some hypothetical gain. Nioi might be opposed to that. I am not saying that this invalidates your concern, merely that there is more than one potential explanation here.
  12. Story Monday December 2, 2019

    Oh, I agree with that. I am merely proposing this as one possible scenario that might convincingly explain what was going on.
  13. Story Monday December 2, 2019

    My own theory: they are both the same. The first time we see him he was in 'battle mode.' (Also his appearance might have been due to 2002 plot inconsistencies.) I have before presented the theory that the reason he is a harsher person is that he did not meet an Elliot alternate in that world, or alternately lost him/her/them. And that his intention was not to 'kill Tedd' but rather to kill 'weak Tedd' -- presumably by forcing the local Tedd to engage in harsh measures to protect his home, friends and loved ones and so learning that he was stronger than he thought. Exactly why I am not certain, but I have a hypothesis that there is some sort of different dimensional menace out there that he wishes to defend against and that strengthening local Tedds in other dimensions is part of his overall strategy. I admit that I do not have much to support this hypothesis, but Edward at least does not seem to think that it was Lord Tedd's intent to simply kill his son. The Goo was slow, loud and menacing. All things you do NOT want an actual assassin to be. I do not think it was meant to actually kill. Rather, it was intended to provoke Tedd into becoming less timid and more aggressive and assertive.
  14. Story Monday December 2, 2019

    Possibly because he does not want to kill? The Goo may have thought it had been sent to kill. But perhaps killing other Tedds was never Lord Tedd's intention?

    No, they just say it is. Look how it usually works out for them.

  17. The Unchanging and Inviolate Word of God

    And here I thought those bits were in Doucheronomy. You forgot the part that read, "Until they start to cost money. At that point they and the mother are free to go die in a ditch."

    Yes, before the dark times. Before the EMPIRE. </Obi-Wan Kenobi>

    Don't you mean Imperial expansion? I mean, it's fairly normal for empires to be expansionistic.

    Unfortunately there is no escape from the bad science of Voyager.
  22. Friday, November 29, 2019

    Maybe it is a side effect of metric expansion.

    For what it is worth, mine are, too.

    Maybe they used Star Trek: Voyager physics for it. That crap is awesome. I still marvel at how they escaped from a black hole's gravitational field by flying through a crack in the event horizon.
