Indian Sect Members Vow To Marry Sex Workers
this certainly will strike a few chords. or more in the USA, just because of how controversial this is. Though the ironic thing would be if people in the USA did this as well, if this DSS group had ties here.

I imagine that they might want to be keeping an eye out as well for those who might be involved in trying to lure underage children as well.
Scientists Say a Dirty Child Is a Healthy Child
That's interesting. very. actually. I wonder if a test with controls and whatnot would work to test if this actually is true.
Has Sci-Fi Run Out of Steam?
It's also about politics as well, and how we perceive them as well. Take a look at the new V series. It's set after 9/11 when we've become suspicious of everything different, where we value security, and those that aren't with us, must be destroyed. This new series once again explores the unknown, (and yes it sucks majorly right now because they need a writing staff that's more qualified to do justice,) but at the same time it explores how our ideologies are. Think about this as well, charismatic and "peaceful" beings who want to share with us their tech and heal us. It's also about religion. The old series didn't have a priest who was questioning everything that the V said. That's what makes this series so good, is that it has more depth to it then the original series. Plus the role of Anna, she has a hidden agenda, and while I am a democrat, I can see huge allusions to Obama and his presidential reign. The old series was directed more towards the whole Cold War era, in a time where we didn't know where we were going or what we were doing. In this new series, we have 9/11 and terrorists and sleeper cells.

Laser Weapon Shoots Down Airplanes In Test
quick question here.
I'm sure this has already been covered, but I am confused, so hopefully this will answer it.
are we talking targeting laser here which then is coupled with something else, such as a missile that fires or are we talking about an actual laser that fires and does damage, such as the laser that the Death Star has?
NASA Attempts To Assuage 2012 Fears
Is it just me, or are people getting stupider and it's the younger generations who are getting smarter?
People got all afraid of Y2K thinking it would be the end of the civilized world and we'd be back to the stone age, and lo nothing happened. other then it becoming a new year and computers and technology still existing.
People take television and movies too seriously. I've known people who've read The Left Behind Series and take it as Gospel. ::rolls Eyes:: So you see it's because we're really a lot more uneducated then we let on. and we force these things on others who take it as gospel, and sooner or later we've got mass stupidity and suicides and other issues because of one Hollywood movie.
New Zealand To Launch First Private Space Rocket
I was in Nz in May and visited both the A.J. Hacket place and the Zorb place out of Rotorura. two awesome experiences. lots of videos and photos.
I miss the place, it's one of the places that I would go back to and visit, possibly even live there. I love Queenstown, very New York style place.

Sci-Fi Shows and Movies Should Stop...
no one's brought up Farscape.
Okay, so Farscape was another one of those cookie cutter cut outs, but it had class and taste. am I wrong, or am I just breathing hot air here?
Project Natal Release Details Emerge
I'm not sure if this question was brought up already, if it has been, then mod me down...however, I've been thinking.
why not just create a new x-box system, like they did when they created the 360. Keep all the same elements and everything. essentially it'd be the 360, but it would have the inboard system for the Natal. I see nothing wrong with going out and buying the Natal as an add on, but yet at the same time, I find it extremely interesting that they want to do an add on for (when all is said and done mind you) $100.
If they were just to create a new system, call it the X-box 360+ and have everything built in, wouldn't that be more cheaper in the long run? Because when you think about it, do you really want to go out and buy something that may not work, when if they build it in system, they can test it to make sure it works. That I think was something along the same lines when they first did in comp web cams, because people weren't sure if the product was going to work.
I dunno. just my thoughts.
US Navy Was Ordered To Listen For Martian Broadcast
Sounds also like what was heard in The Sparrow. Though in this case the transmissions from Rakhat wasn't music, but the planets poet celebrating the joys of sex/rape. The transmissions were heard the same way though; through radar/radio.
It does raise an interesting question though, since after reading The Sparrow, we now hear music.....but how do we know it's actually music.
Attack of the PowerPoint-Wielding Professors
I think Land that what you're missing is that there are people in college who really don't want to be in class, that the only reason they're there is because they're on a sports scholarship or something to that extent. They're forced to take classes, so they take something that A) they really don't care about and B) something that is easy. Unfortunately that doesn't translate out in college at all, unless you somehow don't declare a major at all and take all gen eds for all four years that you're there (which can be done apparently) and just breeze through.
I realize though that once again with PowerPoint this also enables a student to skip out on class because a lot of profs that I know of, will post the PowerPoint they show in class to the server for the class. This is one of those things that I like, because most of my profs move through the slides way too fast to write anything down. The other thing that they do is that they will print out the slides(the Bio/Chem profs at my school do this) and then you can write in the lines they provide, while they talk about the slides as they show each one.
