And to be further pedantic, he's not really a captain, so "Captain Sir" isn't actually appropriate. Appropriate forms of address would also include "Sir Patrick", and "Sir Patrick Stewart", but not "Sir Stewart".

Other than demonstrating that you are willing to kill people for holding an opinion, did you intend to provide some argument to back up that assertion? We used to have the quaint idea that rights came with responsibilities. The right to vote should come with the responsibility to be informed of the issues on which you are voting. I would have no problem with requiring that people who exercise their right to vote also demonstrate in some way that they are going to make an informed decision (irrespective of whether it's the same decision that I would have made).

grumling (94709) | more than 4 years ago | (#30605510)

Actually when the country was founded, only land-owning white men had the right to vote. It wasn't until the suffrage movement and eventually elimination of the Jim Crow laws (along with 6 amendments to the constitution) in the late 19th and early 20th century that everyone over 18 got the right to vote.

Re:Abolishment? (1)

mdwh2 (535323) | more than 4 years ago | (#30605450)

That's all well and good until the king has views that you don't agree with. And sure, some people might want the Government asshats kicked out, but some people might not. And then people might not agree on who are the asshats in the first place. So how do we decide? Maybe we could, I dunno, have a vote for it? But then why do you need the king?

Government asshats are easier to vote out than a king asshat...

And it's irrelevant to the UK monarchy, as in practice she has no political power. OTOH, we do have the house of lords as a 2nd unelected house. So the usual argument that we'd be left with the elected politicians having absolute power is wrong, on two counts. Just because someone is against the monarchy doesn't mean that they oppose having a second unelected house.

TheRaven64 (641858) | more than 4 years ago | (#30604806)

I'm not sure what your point is, given that the queen just rubber stamps the honours list; it's prepared by the Prime Minister. As to the point of the monarch, I thought she was there to veto insane government legislation, but when she signed RIPA I realised that she was just a waste of taxpayers' money.

Actually, a major reason the Brits keep the monarchy around is that it makes about as much in tourism as it costs them. It's not just silly tradition.

That and you can give people cool titles, which by contrast the US Constitution strictly forbids.

He was a member of the RSC for a long time before he was Piccard and his recent performance of Hamlet was sold out over its entire run a long time before it started, and was also televised by the BBC on Christmas day.

OpenGLFan (56206) | more than 4 years ago | (#30605504)

I know this will sound like hopeless fanboyism, but Stewart was no slouch in ST:TNG, and he didn't just phone it in. I can't think of many other actors who could have pulled off "There Are Four Lights", or the episode where he lived an entire life in another planet and learned to play the flute (can't remember the name.) After a few seasons, the writers realized just how good "that Shakespeare guy" was, and they wrote some demanding episodes for Stewart.

Watch the first season, just watching Picard: it's a textbook example of how a talented actor can take a largely untried cast and some occasionally shaky writing and forge a solid character.

More on topic - do Knights actually hold any government sway or what? If the British Empire were to collapse and the world dive in to chaos, could we have Picard as our last line of defense? Say the whole cabinent were to be assassinated... could we vote Jean Luc in to save us?

Re:Surprised (1)

TheRaven64 (641858) | more than 4 years ago | (#30605506)

do Knights actually hold any government sway

Not as a result of being a knight. I'm not sure what the statistics are now, but in the '80s at least 50% of them were senior civil servants, and so held a lot of influence via their jobs, but the title of knight is purely honorary. This is a Knight Bachelor, not a chivalric knight, meaning that it does not come with the right (and responsibility) of defence of the realm.

Life peerages, which are two steps up the honours system, carry with them a seat in the House of Lords and so are lifetime appointments to the legislature (you also get something like £200 and good food for any day when you happen to drop in to Parliament - the House of Lords also has a much better wine cellar than the Commons).

You know, NASA's budget request for 2010 [nasa.gov] is $10.1 billion for space stuff ("Space Operations" and "Exploration", by my read - see page 4).

The world could probably be a better place by spending a billion of that (like, oh, 10%) on rice and handing it out in Africa, and exploring space just a little slower.

(Note to people who are calculating that that's only a million tons of rice, and that won't go real far across a billion people for a year - it's a start, and the people who survive another year probably won't mind not dying.)

I'm not a Star Trek fan (I've only watched a few episodes of the original and nothing else)

Then you have not watched star trek!

Amen to A Christmas Carol. I had recorded it when it was on TNT originally in 1999, but set it aside and never watched it. About two weeks ago I picked it up and me and my family watched it. We loved it, even the four year old and the 2 year old. They rendered their opinion of Scrooge as "He's a grumpy old man who doesn't like Christmas."

I liked it so much I ordered the DVD from Amazon so I wouldn't have to put up with the commercials. Of course, the kids found the "Muppet Christmas Carol" so now it's tough to watch anything but that; but it's okay, I like Michael Caine too.

I always enjoyed it when he ran around to that funny music and Benny Hill slapped him on his bald head.
