This isn't even the biggest plot hole in Dark Knight Rises... that would be the whole stock market plan / Bruce losing his money. It was the point where I just lost all suspension of disbelief and went from mild annoyance to just flat-out hating the movie. A plan that relies on bankrupting someone by a) Fraud b)… » 5/21/14 5:02am 5/21/14 5:02am

The biggest thing I see standing against it being captured is that the relative motion is moving with the star and the distance between them relative to their masses. GU Psc is a red dwarf at about 1/3rd the mass of our sun, and this thing is up to 13 Jupiter Masses, which is still a pretty small percent of the mass… » 5/15/14 12:35am 5/15/14 12:35am

I'd have to go with "what is Dark Energy?" Unlike Dark Matter, where it's something we can (very) indirectly observe and draw some conclusions on some very basic traits of it (though we cannot really say what it is)... Dark Energy is basically just a placeholder for a gap in our knowledge. » 4/16/14 10:17am 4/16/14 10:17am

See, what I don't get is why people are excited to see these movies when they miss out on all the cheese of the originals. The whole reason to watch Godzilla (or the even more entertaining and terrible Gamera movies) is because they were so bad, it was just over-the-top crazy. When they make them all serious and… » 4/14/14 7:13am 4/14/14 7:13am

I absolutely love that movie, so I can't call it one I hate, but I can absolutely agree with how horrible it is. But it's like a Galaxy Quest kind of "horrible" that spoofs the genre as much as it plays to it (though in the case of Demolition Man, it was unintentional a lot of the times). » 4/09/14 3:20pm 4/09/14 3:20pm

Want to get the goodwill of all the fans that have cut ties to SyFy (outside of the whole "we call it SyFy" thing)? That's easy. Produce a movie or miniseries to end Stargate Universe. That gets you back to space ships, making people happy, and fixing the biggest wrong committed since cancelling Eureka. » 3/13/14 1:54pm 3/13/14 1:54pm

I've actually be watching the Baker run recently to get an extra fix after the huge buzz that was the 50th anniversary show (and waiting for the Christmas special). And while I have a memory of Baker being far and away my favorite doctor while watching reruns on PBS on Saturday nights (right after I was told to keep… » 12/26/13 4:56pm 12/26/13 4:56pm

I was in 1st grade, standing in the doorway of our school library, which was just across the hall. I opted to watch the shuttle launch instead of going out for recess, because I was just crazy for NASA and the space shuttle. I won't ever forget seeing it, and the mixture of crying and not understanding that came to a… » 11/13/13 9:28am 11/13/13 9:28am

In a realistic world, Neptune and Uranus are both far, far overdue for some more in-depth exploration. All of our information about the two red-headed (okay, blue) stepchild planets comes from Voyager 2. We've studied Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, and Mercury in depth during that same time. We need a couple of Cassini-style… » 10/24/13 7:44am 10/24/13 7:44am
