Re: Bobby Ewing in the Shower

Didn't see the original but it was remade with Trevor Eve. He's always interesting to watch and deliciously dark and evil. That was possibly the most unnecessary re-make in the history of re-makes. Are any of them necessary? I find them all pointless. Some are more pointless than others. I'm sure s...

Re: Are governments just protection rackets for the 1%?

Minimum wage has almost nothing whatsoever to do with automation replacing workers. Any economist will confirm your statement is patently false. What you say may have been the case decades ago but today it is well-paid administrative and technical jobs that are most being replaced by technology - l...

Re: Bobby Ewing in the Shower

You have to admit they are easy to confuse. Do you remember something called Bracken's World? It has always stuck in my head. I was just a child but I thought it was the greatest thing. I'm sure it was considered risque and very 'adult'. Same with Star Trek. I occasionally caught a glimple of that ...

Re: Bobby Ewing in the Shower

I made a point of avoiding Dynasty. I never saw an episode. You're so embarrassed about it you're pretending you don't even know the difference between Dallas and Dynasty. :D You have to admit they are easy to confuse.

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

[...] there is so much that NS seems not to explain, such as the appendix, male nipples, and psychopathy. Those are soft questions for NS. The appendix is now believe to be a reservoir of intestinal flora, and probably has other roles not yet found (but not vital roles for sure as people can live w...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

Things are getting so metaphysical one can't even trust dice any longer. Yes, DNA is the most fantastic molecule in universe. Without it, how could there be self-replication? Whether natural selection applies to individuals or populations, it doesn't change much. Individuals are within populations ...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

Natural selection is non-random in the sense that it is one aspect of a deterministic universe. No, it's non-radom in the clear sense that whether the universe is deterministic or, natural selection culling genetic variation is not, not, NOT random! Yes evolution is far more about NOT surviving tha...

Re: Bobby Ewing in the Shower

Once upon a time, long, long ago - I sat up all night watching celebrities sleep. Then, a flying duck fell off the wall and broke my head. When I woke up there was this space I had to fill. Did you give a flying duck? There's a certain degree of giving a duck that is involved in not giving a duck. ...

In the same way as you are uninteresting rather than disinteresting, you mean?

No in the same way that you continually show us that you left school at 15 - best you wish you had not confessed that?? LOL

Thanks for sharing your impressions.

My impression? I'm dealing with a last-word freak.

We'll see if that's confirmed.

Still, it was thoughtful of you to go out of your way in order to let us know how disinterested you are.

Re: Bobby Ewing in the Shower

As soap operas go, I think the PN forum is right up there ! I would say it's more like one of those "reality" shows like Big Brother or I'm a (erstwhile) Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. Everyone pretending to be something they're not. Once upon a time, long, long ago - I sat up all night watching ce...

Cavemen were first with flying ducks on the wall.
Apparently, they are shamanic symbols...
Oh, 'Fuuuuck'...
Fuck a duck!
