Is about colonizing Mars, or mankind reaching out for colonization beyond Earth. At least that's my take. Trek was about inspiring young minds to get into science and security, maybe medicine. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was about inspiring young minds to fight invaders. Old Lost in Space was about accepting or critiquing alternative fringe culture and how it challenged the family.

I guess none of these shows, in retrospect, was just about telling a good story for the sake of it. Oh well.

Neo-LIS is somewhat watchable, though I'm getting a distinctly female and little boy focus vibe.

I'm not sure what else to say about it.

In other news I listened to an interview with Alcubierre and his warp drive model. He says it requires negative mass and negative energy, which I think is a load of sh_t as there is no such thing as negative mass nor negative energy for that matter. And for the record his model is decades old. The idea of not moving and having the universe move around you to get from PA to PB, is an old one. I guess the only difference is that he splashed some math on the concept to make it sound plausible. Otherwise it's just pure bullsh_t probably akin to a "boltzman brain" concept; i.e. something to keep the nut cases thinking so real scientists can do their work.

Studying the speed limit, C, does not mean you can go faster than C. And creating speculations that require speculative abstracts like negative mass and negative energy, is just garbage. As per previous posts I think C is a manifestation of the physical framework in which we live, but it is not the ultimate speed limit, and going faster than C by some particle, does not require infinite energy nor exotic "made up sh_t" like negative this and negative that.

Oh well.

I'll be starting divorce proceedings with my beloved gut starting tomorrow. My water based lawyer says salads are the thing to get rid of an overbearing possessive gut, and to sue for denial of affection and nutrition. Which is odd, since it was my affection for food that got me into this marriage oh, and one of the characters on the screen whips out a thing of Oreos.... What I wouldn't give for a tall glass of milk and thing of Oreo cookies now. Woe is me.

I need to remind myself to drop Wayne Peters a line about rounding the windows on his Florian Scout. Apparently windows are rounded on aircraft because they resist crack propagation.

Prepare to jump; one, two, three JUMP!
