You need to watch better sci-fi. Science fiction is all about ideas, and there are plenty of greats. Also, you say this and then you can't wait to see Star Wars?

Speaking of education, the art museum recently held a screening of the documentary film Approaching the Elephant and it is definitely worth watching. Also, the title reference led me to reread J.D....

Doesn't take a skeptic to think that the more serious crimes, like depraved heart murder, are going to be very difficult to prove.

Didn't take long for the old Congress excuse to pop up! And by prior regimes of course you mean Bush. Two in one. Did not expect such a cop out from you though, but oh well. It is impressive that he...

Yeah except that he's almost through two terms and hasn't done shit about it. Like most of his rhetoric, its all talk. Because if it were really so important to him he would have pushed on it as the...

I come in here a little excited to discuss Sanders running and there's talk of him being Clinton's running mate? Makes me want to vomit.

I'm just hoping Showgirls hasn't been considered one of these best worst movies things, because it is too legitimately well crafted to deserve to be in that category.

Ah so you also made it through some really painful episodes, such as the one where Michael holds the pizza delivery kid hostage. Season 4 still has its moments though. Season five is a big dip and...

It would almost certainly hurt the economy short term, but long term I would be optimistic about clean energy job growth. However, I think its important to point out that economic growth is something...

I think it shows its ignorance a little when it brings up the executive power in the area, through the EPA, and then quickly moves on. The executive has an enormous amount of power here, and it is...

Too bad his climate change rhetoric has resulted into a very meager, if not downright harmful, environmental record. Typical for this president though.

Woody Allen is a piece of shit. Its his his hollywood elite status that lets him largely escape his crimes, and that is tied to his critical reception. A defense of his films is often tied to a...

No, I would point out the hypocrisy to lift the veil on justified murder. I believe there is no place in society for a person who commits an act such as the boston bombings. I also believe there is...

Our military has committed, and continues to commit, far worse atrocities than the boston bombings. I think he was just pointing out the hypocrisy in the outrage.
