Haven't seen it before, but I'll check it out sometime. Sci-fi is pretty much the only kind of show I'll watch that isn't funny or educational.

its pretty much a bunch of time-pieces in a sci-fi wrapper. most of what goes on in the show is actually more like dramatic/historical stuff.

I dunno, do scarves make you nerdy? Or maybe just slightly flamboyant?

You've seen all of Star Trek? Even the lousy stuff like Next Gen?

universally accepted = still opinion and not fact, jack!

Well I think Captain Kirk is best, and then Janeway, and Picard can kiss the ferret's foot.

I think Picard is alright since him and Ryker share command. I just have trouble getting into Next Gen because the writing in general seems kind of boring most of the time.

it depends on what season you are starting out with. season 1 is a bit tough, it gets better in season 2, and it is pinnacle after season 3 until about season 6 or so.

Doesn't Picard just stay in his office, and whatever happens happens? I used to watch Next Gen with my dad and never really got the gist of what was going on.

But basically what you're saying is that I could skip to season 3 and not miss too much.

Aw eff that noise, it won't help if I fall asleep during the show. :o

Just like I did with Lord of the Rings trilogy. :( They're so beautiful, and I love New Zealand, but all I remember is seeing a blue screen on the TV when we woke up.

How did you know about my Rockstar addiction? Did J tell you? Huh? I only drink three a day, I don't have a problem! Stop looking at me!

I think Sugar Free is the best. I can drink them like water. I've tried regular, it's got a different kind of taste, and (gasp) carbs!

Orangy is good for an occasional treat, I think I'll get yours out of the fridge and drink it Jerry. :-*

I tried a couple of the different flavors like grape and lemon, but the original just tastes the best.

i dont believe in the "sugar free" sort of things as being actually better so i just stay away from that stuff

I figure I gotta die from something, and maybe if Rockstar kills me they'll pay for my funeral

Yeah I was drinking Rockstar at work and the boss said "Oh, those are bad for your heart." and I said "Oh well, just let me have my few seconds of enjoyment."

Rockstar may make me a memorial banner for my funeral if I write it into my will as a last request.

does you boss also tell you that if you drink too much water you can drown?

why do people force their morbidity on others?

People love when I'm miserable, especially at work, but they don't have to worry about if I am or not. Just because I force a smile onto my face and act chipper for their own benefit doesn't mean I'm actually happy, which is something people don't understand. I'm doing that for their gain, not mine. If it was up to me I'd tell them what I really think and never come back.

I'm tired of adults that act like whiny self-entitled babies when no one gives one second of consideration to how I may be feeling. Nobody cares! So why should I care about them. A horrible attitude, yes, but one that's been building up over the years.
