  1. That reminds me of a show called The Expanse, Stubby - they use ice asteroids for oxygen, hydrogen power and water also. I do think it is the future but don't think it will happen without another major mass human extinction, war and or economic crash on Earth first.
  2. I don't think there is any chance of us making the Earth unlivable long term - short term possibly but long term no way. There have been multiple major climatic changes on Earth previously, through which life (including human in some instances) has survived and adapted. Venus is not Earth, the conditions are not the same and that life ever existed on it is pure speculation. I'm not saying for certain it did or didn't, all I'm suggesting is that it's not really relevant to how climate change on Earth is currently playing out and has played out previously.
  3. You miss the point, climate change has the potential to save the planet from us. Think about it, if our numbers are decreased significantly and the oceans rise enough to put our centres of technology and industry underwater, we won't have the capacity to interfere with nature half as much as we do now,
  4. I've come to understand that climate change is not a problem - it's actually a solution to human overpopulation.
  5. Either party would be stupid to ignore a strong result, seeing there has been such a high turnout. 60% or more either way and both sides of Australian politics will likely adopt it as policy. For instance, if 60% vote yes, there likely will be a SSM bill passed this year. If 60% vote no, then Labor will likely drop support because there are more votes in it. A close result, leaning either way, is the worst case scenario because then the issue will continue to be divisive. So I don't think it's meaningless - a majority result will likely force parliamentary action.

    I can't not watch the end - I've invested 7 years (more) wondering how this thing is going to resolve. It will probably disappoint the fuck out of me - but you know when you are in too deep, you can't walk away, you have to see it all through to the bitter end.

    It is definitely the worst season. Some good visuals but worst overall narrative of any season. Your handle should be jumped the Stark

    HBO Exec on Prequels, Final Season

    Why do you want it to go on forever? It was designed as a saga, not a serial - it was designed to end. I recently watched some of season 7 again and think it's already overstayed it's welcome, should have wrapped up this season.

    Small Crimes was good but if you want to be really blown away by a Nikolaj performance, I recommend Shot Caller.

    I found War Machine, Beasts of No Nation and Autopsy of Jane Doe to be excellent films, far better than any I'd seen at the cinema in years.

    Night King appreciation thread

    As the tale draws to a close, more and more people recognise the true saviour of Westeros. Good to see. Think about, even if he is doing little more than continuing his original purpose (protecting nature and the magical trees from the advance of humanity) his cause is more pure and his intentions more noble than any other character in the tale (including Jon). We don't need to know the details of his motives to know they serve the greater good - we just have to accept that humans don't. Consider that the NK and the Winter he controls is the reason Westeros has been kept in some form of feudalism for 8000 years. Consider that without him the humans would industrialise and Westeros would be truly fucked, as is our very own Earth. Perhaps that is the bitter sweet ending?

    It's coz Clarke and Harrington are like A list celebrities or something so seeing their naked butts is some kind of big deal. I spent the whole time wondering if how a dead person's blood could flow and enable an erection, or if his semen was dry from being dead.

    I think they were trying to make the Theon fight like a mini Rocky moment - you know, the underdog comes back and wins the day. But it just seemed silly and didn't need it. Jon's pep talk gave him the forgiveness and courage he needed he should have just walked out and whacked that guy down.

    Yea, I guess the show is trying to say that Brienne has bigger nuts than Theon I don't know, it's all become so silly, so illogical - it started with such promise also.

    The Ironborn thing was dumb - it was like fightclub without a penis How did kicking Theon in the nuts (which I suspect he still had and Ramsay just took his cock) suddenly make him cranky enough to win? How did it not hurt him - it's the nuts themselves that hurt when they get hit, not the penis.
