"People are entirely too disbelieving of coincidence. They are far too ready to dismiss it and to build arcane structures of extremely rickety substance in order to avoid it. I, on the other hand,...

Re: Star Wars Names that have to do with poop?

"Count Dooku" is scatological enough. No alteration is needed.

Re: Same sex marriage & Polygamy

While the thought is nice and such actions can build needed solidarity within a movement, they are of course nothing like actual effective boycotts. Boycotts work best when they are focused, local,...

Sony's $800 Cell Phone

Re: Sony's $800 Cell Phone

You obviously presume too much. I am well aware that many 'smarphones' are basically highly overpriced handheld computers which also function as phones.
Yup. That's what I was saying.
Yes, but...

Who'd win: Darth Vader vs. Sauron

Re: Who'd win: Darth Vader vs. Sauron

...which would not actually destroy Sauron as Sauron is not tied to his corporal form. Sauron would then just wait for Vader to die of old age and would thus win by default:p

Sony's $800 Cell Phone
Posted By Lucifer Prometheus
Re: Sony's $800 Cell Phone

As you said, most contracts basically absorb the price of the phone. Hence it is doubly idiotic to go out and purchase an $800 one that isn't covered by such a deal. If you're in a lurch, you can buy...

Re: Sony's $800 Cell Phone

1) A thing costs exactly what you pay for it. No more, no less.
2) If you want a cell phone, you're probably going to be needing cell phone service.$100, or even $160 is a far cry from $800. As is...

Who'd win: Darth Vader vs. Sauron
Posted By Lucifer Prometheus
Re: Who'd win: Darth Vader vs. Sauron

In the Star Wars universe, Sauron would basically be the personification of the Dark Side. The Emperor is not a god, so I don't see the parallel there at all. Sauron had a number of emperors as his...

Re: Who'd win: Darth Vader vs. Sauron

Darth Vader is very adept at channeling the power of the Dark Side of the Force. That's mighty impressive to be sure. But Sauron is the Dark Side of the Force. Vader would certainly make a pretty...

Re: Movies you couldn't even finish.

That almost sounds reasonable when you put it so vaguely. But what does 'having reservations' entail exactly? Does it encompass a belief that people ought to be denied civil rights based on a...

Re: Why do we watch violent movies?

I do not think that it would be violent in the sense that a film like Taxi Driver or an epic poem like The Iliad is violent.

Coalition Government For Canada???

Re: Coalition Government For Canada???

No, nothing like that at all. The Canadian system is a parliamentary republic without an independently elected executive. And this doesn't really seem like it's a matter for the courts to settle.

Re: Why do we watch violent movies?

Our capacity for violence is hardwired into us. We agree on this.


I cannot agree more. Mutual aid is certainly at least as strong a factor in human societies as mutual struggle; and certainly...

Most Overrated Movies

Re: Most Overrated Movie of all time.

This dovetails very well into that thread about critics. Artists rarely think of brilliant **** like that when they're actually making the stuff- they need the critics to point it out:D
