    Welcome to "Torchwood"

    I watched all the episodes on YouTube a few months ago (I'm sure before BBC shook the naughty finger at them). Pretty entertaining fair. Certainly not Shakespeare, but good for an hours diversion. When you have watched all the episodes try and find clips from the comedy show "Dead Ringers"...

    SciFi's Galactica 1980 MiniMarathon.... bleh!

    Ok, what is the deal exactly? Battlestar Galactica (original series) was, looking back through nostalgia colored glasses, an enjoyable show. Sure, it was often campy but it had some undefinable charm that made me watch and enjoy it. I liked the characters and the chemistry of the show. In...

    Worried about my daughter

    Just a bit of possible information that might help. There is a condition called "paruresis" that is a psychological reason for trying to avoid bathroom trips. (It is a phobia of peeing or pooping when the person thinks there may be anyone around to witness the act - whether they are there...

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    Just a comment... I keep seeing the story will be "scientifically possible" used to try to limit the ideas discussed about the show. I might like to remind everyone that "scientifically possible" in Hollywood terms is a very different beast than "scientifically possible" in the real...

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    About Kate and the Marshall...maybe we should reverse the scenario...maybe the Marshall is the bad guy. For some reason, I took the "she's dangerous" comment in a different way since he said to the doc "she has already gotten to you." Maybe the marshall is abusing his power and been...

    best way to wash your car.

    I'm a Zaino convert..best stuff ever, and it is not pricey. I use only about 2oz of Z2 & Z5 to do my entire SUV... then even much less Z6 spray. Best damn stuff ever. I tossed out all my previous waxes the day after I used Zaino for the first time. As for interior cleaning...303 Aerospace...

    Anyone Had Gallbladder Problems???

    Ah, yes.... Been there done that. I know the pain and the feeling your wife is going through. I too had a negative for Gall-stones, but a HIDA scan showed that my Gallbladder was not very efficient when trying to work. I was able to change my diet and eating habits and **slowly** over the...

    Star Trek: Enterprise 10/15/'03: "exile"

    You can bet the "book written by a long dead civlization" is going to come back when they begin to unravel "who built the spheres." Plus, Hoshi must have some kind of esp to translate written language with out a baseline context to begin that translation. Oh, and a bit on the...

    What is a "light-year"?

    Well, when talking about "mass" beyond the speed of light. (Taken from one of my favorite websites Bad Astronomy). Albert Einstein, when he formulated the theory of Relativity, was able to describe this problem using math. He found that as you get near the speed of light, the energy it takes...
