    Guys what's so great about LOST?

    It's just so badly written or is that the point?
    Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon and Nordic culture roughly corresponding to fate. It is ancestral to Modern English weird, which has acquired a very different meaning.

    Edit: here ya go! The efficacy of high SPF is debateable, though.
    The FDA doesn't allow them to market it.

    Not male? Not NT? Don't like sophomoric british humour? Not into sci-fi or parodies thereof?

    I'd also like to trade my TV and three shows for the laptop and wireless connection. Should this alternative not be available I'll watch:

    - Entourage
    - Law and Order : Criminal Intent (but only episodes with Goran)
    - The Office (British version)

    Is being on an island with a television better or worse than being stuck in a forest?
    JBS Haldane's Four Stages of Scientific Theories:

    1. This is worthless nonsense.
    2. This is an interesting, but perverse, point of view.
    3. This is true, but quite unimportant.
    4. I always said so.

    I suppose it is highy ironic to be watching a TV show about a group of people stuck on an island whilst being stuck on an island yourself.

    Red dwarf? I'm not sure. It's well written and clever. But, it has a lot of sci fi references, and uses sardonic British humour mixed with silliness. If those aren't your thing you won't like it. If they are, I recommend giving it another try!

    What sort of comedy works for you?
