    Wow, this thread brings me back. Anyway, I stand by much of what I said. I'd list Jedi as my religion on a census form.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I remember that before anyone told me about the Big Bang theory, I had assumed that the universe had always existed. Things don't just pop into existence, and yet here we are, so everything must have always been right? For a kid who didn't know about astronomy, it was a natural assumption to make. I remember thinking that the Big Bang theory was really weird when it was first explained to me, and I still do in a way, even though I trust that astrophysicists probably understand this sort of thing better than I do.

    Even today, I like the Big Crunch idea because it intuitively makes sense. Also, as a new BSG fan, I like the 'All of This Has Happened Before, and All of This Will Happen Again' theme.

    I like the coda that it doesn't have to happen again.
