It was one of the things that the show Warehouse 13 did exceptionally well when it came up for Mrs. Fredrick, and one of their best written little moments. When she took Claudia to meet her grandson, who was elderly and in a nursing home, and gave her that kind little look and said "Not all wonder is endless" you got… » 10/01/14 11:12pm 10/01/14 11:12pm

Agreed x1000... as a kid, that terrified me and I had nightmares for days about it. When I'm feeling the need for some bad movie and throw in Superman III (because, let's face it, Superman IV is the type of bad movie that makes you want to hurt yourself, not laugh at it), I still hate watching this part. » 10/01/14 8:05pm 10/01/14 8:05pm

Go-bots may have been just awful, but I still own more of them (1) than I do Transformers (0). I have the Shuttle, which I just loved because it was representative of my love for NASA and space travel back in the 80s. Transformers had the "cool" factor, but for those of us who liked numbers (you could get a few… » 9/22/14 2:04pm 9/22/14 2:04pm

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
