    Did I miss the part where Morgan Freeman was President?

    This should be pretty cool though.

    Yeah, it's all cool, until we blow up the house of some intergalatic passenger on the comet, who decides that we have attacked him, and comes to Earth and plots his revenge by blowing up Hollywood.

    Hey, I think I just wrote my first screenplay!

    "What is it?"

    "I dunno. Let's blow it up!"

    I thought JPL was in CA, not AL.

    JPL in is CA, I didn't see in the article where it mentioned AL. A lot of people in AL work with the JPL but it based in Pasedena, as mentioned in the article. Maybe I read the article too quickly and missed the Alabama part.

    All part of the joke, dude. I see you're from Alabama ... how ironic.

    Didn't these scientists see "Armageddon" before they thought about this idea? Where's Superman when you need him?

    I hope that right before it blows up, they cue Aerosmith's song (the "I don't wanna close my eyes..." one). That would make me fall off my chair, if the evening news did that.

    It does raise an interesting question though...

    Who would be more shocked/horrified? The people living in Pasadena to find out they are in Alabama, or the folks in Alabama after finding out they have a bunch of SoCal transplants living in their state. Oh the horror!

    (would have made for a nice Twilight Zone episode) [​IMG]

    Ooops, wrong movie. [​IMG]


    On a serious note, thanks for the heads up on that show. Is there a way you might be able to find out who is distributing it? If so they probably have a list and schedule of all the locations around the country that will be showing it. Thanks!

    Michael Bay blew up an asteroid, not a comet. Ask Mimi Leder. [​IMG]

    So, okay, that's roughly 2am Eastern. This sucker has a camera on it; is there a significant enough speed-of-light delay that I can watch this live without being up in the wee hours?

    Say there was a real comet that was going to hit the earth.
    How could you take a pot shot at it without the world going insane.
    Say it was an experiment and hide nukes galore in it ....and claim it was a GM SUV nobody wanted( they keep comparing the size of it to a SUV).

    Hold off bill paying till Monday

    Just a thought; I'd rather not act out the movie
