Yep, was just about to say that I'd seen a trailer drop for it earlier, but you beat me to it ;) Personally, I can live without a sequel. The first one didn't do much for me, so not fussed either...

Re: How do you know the difference between right and wrong?

Hmm, the argument around animals is not convincing as they just eat and screw, as a general rule. Murder, for example, is not something most animals spend too much time debating. Survival is...

Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, I think? Donald Sutherland and the pointy finger scene. I might be wrong. *shivers*. Still gives me the chills.

Re: When People Judge Direction, What are they Really Judging?

Re: Coffee

I can't afford proper coffee, so end up with Kenco. Or those 3 in 1 crack packets that Nescafe do.
