    What are you reading ?

    I'm in the middle of National Novel Writing Month at the moment (37 000 words done out of 50 000!) but just before bed I have been re-reading The Island of Doctor Moreau. Read through it a few times for my thesis last year on H.G. Wells. It feels good to be reading his stuff for fun and not to...

    Conspiracies, or just a plain devolution of society at large?

    While it is true that a lot of successful people do not have a formal tertiary degree, tertiary education does still have a lot to offer in terms of a broad foundation of knowledge, a source of independence and self confidence, a way of learning persuasive arguing skills, and practice in...

    Do crop circles have "Magic"/paranormal properties?

    I wish there was an "I don't know but probably not" option. Occam's razor works for me too.

    What are you reading ?

    Just got out of a year-long Literature/Creative Writing postgrad. course so while a lot of the books I was reading for that were fun (lots of H.G. Wells, The Hobbit, The Princess Bride, and other super-sweet books) it feels good to be reading stuff again without having to take notes! At the...

    Space Babes

    (When there is an alien on the viewscreen whose face is redder than a dead man's shirt, jumping up and down with smoke coming out of his/her ears, Troi is the one who looks at said alien and says "I sense anger.")

    Had to log in particularly to confirm that yes it was indeed Picard who said that!

    UFOs: Shoot them down or Don't shoot

    The other question is, even if there may be documented, unequivocally proven cases of injury/death from UFOs, how do we know that they're all dangerous? I believe the point was made much earlier in this thread, of assumptions that this is a case of Earth vs. UFO... us v. them -- where "UFO" is a...

    who's on your tp list? a (somewhat) tongue-in-cheek rant

    Forgive my ignorance, but what's "tp"? Is it a Halloween thing?

    Fake iTunes Reviews!

    In that case I solemnly promise never to chuckle again. Except when Chris O'Brien does his ET voice(s)~~ permission to sneak a little smile then? If the reviewer is referring to your occasional pop culture / sci-fi references Mr Steinberg, this listener actually does ~~how to say~~ appreciate...

    How many of you actually think something special is going to happen 2012?

    Get Mr Camping to say that the end is coming, and that'll be our insurance to see that it doesn't. I hope that something out of the ordinary happens in 2012. And I hope that it's a positive thing. But then that's something I hope for every year. Make sense??

    Ancient Hominids That Were Smarter Than We Are?

    Neandertal people's brains were also larger than ours. We don't know whether that means that they were smarter, per se, but general belief is that they would have been just as smart (although more stuck in their ways) than Cro Magnon. And our ancestors were almost extinct at a time when...

    UFOs: Shoot them down or Don't shoot

    Ummm......... Sometimes. But then, Dung beetles spring to mind.:rolleyes:(mmcrunchy) When Hawking said that it wouldn't be so good for aliens to land on Earth, did he mean they would meet trouble if they landed on Earth, or if they landed in Arizona? Has anyone ever read that short story by...
