More Random Thoughts

THX 1138 surrounded by machine police.

I’m on the floor, the guards are these thoughts. Metaphor!

Well, it’s back to work, so I wanted to use this time to try to download the thoughts from my brain that usually distract me while I’m at my desk.

Many of them occurred to me while away from the house, some of them occurred to me while in the bathroom and a few occurred to me at times it could have led to a car accident.

For a fun side game, try to figure out where each thought occurred!

  1. If there are no starships on Nimbus III, how the Hell did Sybok—or anyone for that matter—get there? I know J’Onn was exaggerating the point for the sake of saying there were none for hire and/or to fly by private citizens…but come on, man. None? No wonder their economy is in the sh*tter.
  2. Is there a high suicide rate among fireworks manufacturers the week after July 4?
  3. “Your going too fast when lights are flashing” was a construction zone speed warning sign in the People’s Republic of Maryland. So at least those tax dollars are helping the school system!
  4. Should I go to a Halloween party as Bane? All I need is a vest, cargo pants and to buy a mask and to shave my head. Possibly that fab fur–lined coat I’ve seen in the previews, too. I don’t know, this might have to happen.
  5. Is everyone comfortable with the fact that if I buy a Bane mask, I might wear it whenever I blog? (Also, to casual Fridays at work.)
  6. Weather forecasters suck across the board. “Imminent Danger” of a severe thunderstorm doesn’t mean “30% chance” in my book.
  7. The movie theatre where I saw Amazing Spider–Man was pretty boss, and it was in the middle of cow pastures. Step it up, urban areas.
  8. My wife asked me if I would go see “Magic Mike” with her; I think I said “no” before the sentence was finished. Amazing Spider–Man was the compromise. Victory: Men everywhere, but especially me.
  9. Why didn’t Han kick the living sh*t out of Lando for the whole Carbon Freeze thing, regardless of apologies? I think Lando owed him a complaint–free beating. Possibly this happened on the Falcon in a moment we never saw?
  10. Can anyone explain to me the new groundswell of hate for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? It’s suddenly being discussed again. Did I miss a marathon on some cable channel or something?
  11. If time travel is so easy for the Borg, why didn’t they travel back to the 1800s and just take over the planet then?

    The movie theatre where I saw Amazing Spider–Man was pretty boss, and it was in the middle of cow pastures. Step it up, urban areas.
    -> That’s because new is always better. Movie Theaters need to get out of the business of buying and owning the building and start working on a “movie theater as a service” model, where someone else is responsible for experience development.

    My wife asked me if I would go see “Magic Mike” with her; I think I said “no” before the sentence was finished. Amazing Spider–Man was the compromise. Victory: Men everywhere, but especially me.
    ->Bwahahaha, Kudos to her for even asking. Sadly, my sibling saw it and had a great time, and apparently the theater was packed. It’s worth noting that her husband did not go with her, to which I replied, “Duh”

    Why didn’t Han kick the living sh*t out of Lando for the whole Carbon Freeze thing, regardless of apologies? I think Lando owed him a complaint–free beating. Possibly this happened on the Falcon in a moment we never saw?
    ->Lando is involved in the rescue of Han, while Han is still blind. Then Han has to save him from the sand-mouth-thing. I think if they could have had a normal moment, he would have. But as it turned out, they went from one dramatic thing to the next, and he didn’t get the chance.

    Can anyone explain to me the new groundswell of hate for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? It’s suddenly being discussed again. Did I miss a marathon on some cable channel or something?
    ->Yes, it was on TV all weekend. Where is the hate? It’s not on my radar. I love to hate things. #ImPartOfTheProblem ;-)

    If time travel is so easy for the Borg, why didn’t they travel back to the 1800s and just take over the planet then?
    -because they absorb knowledge from every species they dominate, the 1800s looked too unattractive. Nothing to assimilate there. Besides – taking over in the 1800s is a self-defeating action that would wipe them off the earth. Trust me, Ewok Hater knows everything about time travel. He told me so himself, so it must be true.

      “That’s because new is always better”
      Actually, it was a refurbished old place. But the screen was huge, the auditorium floor was old-style rake and it was cold and damp like the bat cave, like they were in the old days. Awesomeness.

      “Kudos to her for even asking”
      It proves she doesn’t know how to negotiate. You don’t start with what the other person is completely unwilling to do. :-p

      Lando point:
      You don’t understand men. I’d still kick his ass for it. I just wouldn’t break him.

      Temple of Doom:
      The hate was on the Interwebs from people to whom I’m connected on Twitter. I do have a social media life outside this blog, you know. ;-)

      Borg Counterpoint:
      They obviously didn’t care about absorbing humanity anymore, because they prevented the Warp Era for earth and the establishment of the Federation as we knew it in the first place (for the instant before the Enterprise went back into time to correct things). So their goals were very non-Borg to begin with, but their goals were to prevent instead of assimilate throughout the film. Which, as I reasoned it out here, is another reason to dislike it.
