Funny you should ask. I hadn’t seen it in years so I got it from Netflix last week. It’s so true it’s scary.

Yep. Guaranteed to make Project Managers cry, engineers laugh and old timers shrug.

We put a man on the moon and brought them back again with 32KB of RAM.

Thought twice about using your hijack powers, did you?

I guess it's like Spiderman said, "With great power comes great responsibility."

Then I will do it. But I refuse to be a Robin to his Batman. I prefer to be more of an antagonistic Venom to his Spiderman. ;\)

Dean you mentioned playing Go. I just tried it for the first time and I'm intrigued. Who could ever have imagined so much strategy could be involved with just a grid and stones. Right now I have nothing but but a poorly written rules brochure and some internet findings. Are you aware of any good books on strategy to take a pre-beginner to a higher level?

You may now return to your regularly scheduled apocalyptic event.


With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

Dean, I'm very involved in sociopolitical and environmental et al. issues. Have you seen any of the following documentaries?-

Life at the end of Empire
Winter soldier
The Illuminati
Or anything by Richard Dawkins?

Those come to mind, but there are many more I could cite.

I know this was directed at Dean. I’ve read several of Richard Dawkins books. The Greatest Show on Earth is a great reading. I’m personally undecided on his ‘militant’ approach of his cause; I understand why he does it but not sure if it’s the best approach.

Sorry, not only directed at Dean, but I didn't phrase it that way. I have God Delusion Debate - Richard Dawkins & John Lennox, The Genius of Charles Darwin, The Root of All Evil, and Enemies of Reason. The debate is very interesting, and I very much enjoyed the movies mentioned.

I know what you mean by his "militant" approach, but I think it's required considering the people he's confronting in the documentaries are generally close minded. But, I guess others on the opposite side of the spectrum would say the same for him.
