Matt Smith Leaves "Doctor Who"

UglyTool Re: Often the best man for the job is a woman (375 comments)

Chill the fuck out.

What you saw was some shitty, obscure fan-film made for fanboys at cons. It has absolutely nothing to do with Doctor Who, except for stealing the name. If people thought you meant Curse of Fatal Death instead of an awful movie that nobody else ever saw, then that's understandable. What you linked is NOT Doctor Who. It was a shitty movie that nobody watched.

Yes, because Lithuania is exactly the same as the USA. Both in size and population there is an amazing similarity.

US House Science Committee Member: Evolution Is a Lie From Hell

UglyTool Re:Post bigotry here (1113 comments)

Sometimes it is easy to tell
who is or not mentally well.
Just ask them and see
if it's just a theory
or lies straight from the pit of hell.

US Doctors Back Circumcision

UglyTool Limerick break! (1264 comments)

Let's calm down and get a grip.
I'll give all of you a good tip:
It's a boy? Then rejoice
but leave it his choice.
Avoid giving your son the snip.

Christopher Hitchens Dies At 62

UglyTool Re:Ode to Hitchens (910 comments)

Yes, let us refrain from all things in life that might give us joy, for in those things lie the risk of cancer. Hitchens lived life unapologetically, and I feel that his memory should be celebrated the same way.

Christopher Hitchens Dies At 62

UglyTool Ode to Hitchens (910 comments)

He raised all our IQs a notch.

Idiocy fell on his watch.
We all know that Hitch
was nobody's bitch,
so let's thank him by raising a scotch.

Steve Jobs Dead At 56

UglyTool Re:Lameness (1613 comments)

Steve Jobs has just passed us by. On his visions we all could rely. Now he is gone, but he will move on to that great iPad in the sky. Link

Churches Use Halo To Spread the Word, Raise Eyebrows

UglyTool Re:Spending priorities? (474 comments)

To most people, business means that consumers have choices.

So, MSFT, although being a convicted monopolist, would or would not be a business according to your definition? I hate using analogies, but I'm trying to understand what you're talking about.

What about Standard Oil? Before the government had to step in, they were a monopoly. Would you argue that that was not a business?

If you are arguing that churches in America perform like businesses where the Catholic Church did not, I guess I would argue how you define exchanging money for goods and services.

UglyTool writes "According to MSNBC, Ohio and Columbus, Ohio officials are proposing a set ot incentives intened to lure Canadian rocketeers RocketSpace to launch from and land at an area airport. A decision on the incentives could be made by January.

From the article:

Such a package could include tax credits, financing programs and training grants amounting to millions of dollars, said Matt McCollister, the seven-county chamber's vice president for economic development. PlanetSpace's chairman, Indian-American entrepreneur Chirinjeev Kathuria, told he expected the incentives to amount to "somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million."

UglyTool writes "A small object, possibly a micrometeoroid, hit a radiator panel on the Space Shuttle Atlantis in September. writes:
"The nature of the object that hit the shuttle radiator isn't known," a NASA update said, adding that shuttle processing crews discovered the hole while working on the spacecraft.

The impact also damaged a one-inch (2.5-centimeter) area in the radiator's honeycomb-like aluminum mesh, but did not sever any of the panel's 26 vital coolant tubes as it passed through the half-inch wide panel.
Which brings up some interesting questions. Is there a better way to protect the shuttle in orbit? Will a death in space be the end of our manned space program?"

UglyTool writes "Millions of years ago, our ancestors ran into a bit of trouble. Snakes, it seems, found small primates a tasty snack. Evolution's response? Better eyes. Being able to distinguish primary colors allowed the burgeoning new group of primates to see the snakes close up, before they became dinner. From TFA:

Over millions of years the primates made adjustments, evolving more forward-facing eyes and better eyesight. That made it easier for them to see the snakes, and the arms race hit high gear.
