  1. Stranger Things (Netflix)

    That instagram photo of Millie Bobbie Brown makes her look like a young Natalie Portman. Also, no there should not be a Nintendo tie-in game for the series -- obviously it should be an Atari tie-in game. Duh!
  2. New Star Trek Series on CBS

    It would more likely be a spy ship, not a war ship. Are intelligence officers in blue shirts or gold?
  3. New Star Trek Series on CBS

    It's NCC 1031. Hercules on Ain't It Cool News has a theory that it's a ship dedicated to dealing with extraordinary threats, as part of Section 31.
  4. The Magicians - SyFy [SHOW SPOILERS]

    I'm thinking of picking them up too. Here's another video, this an interview at comic-con basically saying nothing.
  5. The Magicians - SyFy [SHOW SPOILERS]

    Syfy released some glimpses and a first scene from season 2.
  6. Preacher- AMC Comic Adaptation

    I haven't followed this thread at all or followed any theories, but this is exactly what I concluded after this latest episode.
  7. She did say it was a key to some intermensional space-time thingy, so it could very well be dark matter. Coincidentally today I saw an article mentioning a team of physicists thinks dark matter is actually another dimension.
  8. Mashable article on DiMartino's new fantasy book coming in October. Renaissance Italy, about art and math, and the concept of genius as embodied spirits that protects people or places. Sounds fascinating.
  9. New Star Trek Series on CBS

    Um, do they realize the acronym is STD? Questions to ask your friends: Are you looking forward to STD? Will you share STD with your friends and loved ones? Do you think this strain of STD will catch on?
  10. Orphan Black 3: So, sometimes stuff just works out[SPOILERS]

    Tat Mas does Clone Improv at Comic-Con
  11. Marvel Netflix - AKA the Second Thread

    In my head that's Sugar from Banshee in the first scene of that trailer, and the whole Banshee crew is part of the Marvel-Netflix universe.
  12. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    Well, he's merging Tesla and Solar City now, and released the Tesla Plan Part Deux just yesterday. More EVs in additional vehicle classes (another SUV, pick-ups, semis, buses), ride-sharing making owning a Tesla vehicle pay for itself, something about making the Gigafactory as a product (are they selling the design to other companies, building them and selling the physical plants or what? Most likely I think perhaps making Gigafactories as solar powered factories renting out space to other manufacturers, with Tesla becoming a utility). I think it is plenty exciting, and I'm sure his personal wealth in Tesla will eventually be reinvested into furthering the Mars plan some day. I wouldn't be surprised if Tesla also will develop surface transportation and energy infrastructure for Mars colonies some day. With SpaceX also intending to enter the satellite internet market, his Earth focused businesses are very much part of the equation to make Mars happened financially. Not long now to wait for his talk at the IAC meeting revealing the BFR / MCT transportation architecture for Mars.
  13. EW has photos and talks the Naren Shankar about season 2
  14. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    Nice video of the launch / landing synced with animation tracing the path of the Falcon 9 stages during flight.
  15. Mr. Robot

    fsociety fucked up. If they had stole money enough to pay everyone's debt back (or just the bottom 50% say), instead of wiping out debt which the rich don't really care about, then they might have at least accomplished flattening of the social pyramid and lessening of their power. With banks issuing loans out of thin air and only having to have a small percent of that as actual physical currency on hand, then they use debtor's interest payments to issue more loans, and repeat the cycle to inflate their credit historically 20x for every dollar they originally had (or borrowed from the Fed). Wiping out debt is the same as everyone declaring bankruptcy simultaneously. Who cares? Bankruptcies just eliminates the possibility of the banker's pile of money from ever evaporating. Bankruptcies and written off debts just make their credit pyramid scheme immune to evaporation. The system depends on people going bankrupt or wealth disappears. So did fsociety created a world of the permanent rich? Only as long as people continue to believe in money.
