    Whatever the method, if it keeps him around, I'm happy.

    The "I need to vent" thread

    At the risk of trivializing your plight, that last sentence made me laugh.

    The Doctor Who thread

    This episode was delirious fun, enjoed the hell outta it. It was really good. I'm looking forward to seeing what they're going to do with this.

    The news thread

    I would like to share my thoughts on the subject for what it's worth. It's sad that apparently it sometimes takes the murder of innocent people to actually acknowledge just how awful human nature can be. History shows that there have been horrible people throughout the world, and they are always the ones who end up getting the attention. It's not as interesting to show the nice man who held the door at the bank for an elderly woman than it is to show the man who robbed that bank and killed the teller. But, as it should be, bad sadly isn't, apparent to all, strife, chaos, and injustice is the norm. Not goodness, kindness, and charity. We like to think of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, who killed 100 million people between them, and think that most of us are not like that. But we forget that they had tens of millions of people who willingly, even eagerly followed them. Many of them supported, and even encouraged it. Humanity is not by its nature good. People, guided by ethics and morals, can be indeed very kind, and accomplish great things. We can end suffering. We can free millions from the oppression of dictators. We can even end the slavery of millions. But that is not the norm. Therefore, we must not remember the names of killers, but rather damn them. We must remember those who suffered the injustices or tragedies such as what happened on Friday. We must also raise people who do good, who follow the better angels of their nature to higher level, and give them the recognition they deserve.

    Forget my last post. It was another internet fake.

    Superman: Man of Steel

    If it works, I'll be happy too. I'm not saying I think it looks terrible. I just want Superman to be Superman, and not The Red and Blue Blur.

    Superman: Man of Steel

    I'm reminded of the WFP review of the STAS episode "The Main Man", when Superman fought Lobo. Mike's comment on the episode was that it was so much fun, that being big science fiction action. In my opinion (and I'll be the first to admit that it might just be mine), a Superman movie should be that first and foremost. If it isn't, then all the great writing in the world will still leave it falling a bit flat. So far, I haven't seen that yet in these trailers.

    I was working in Plano when it started at about 5 AM yesterday. It only lasted about 45 minutes.

    And maybe run over a hooker to get the money you paid her for her services.

    Star Trek XII (or the new II)

    I was thinking that as well, but this implies destruction on Earth. The only comparable events would be the weather disaster in The Voyage Home or the Breen attack in DS9 Season 7. From what's been implied thus far, Into Darkness is like Wolf 359 combined with the Breen attack, doubled over again. That almost seems to mirror the Zindi attack on Earth from Enterprise.
