    I'd rather see a good thriller, than a movie about the world being taken over by electronic cockroaches.

    One cool thing about science fiction is that it opens up possibilities for entirely new histories to be uncovered. For instance, finding a remote planet with the remnants of a dead civilization would be quite thought provoking.

    So, admitting to being sensitive and being a cp6 makes it okay to accuse me of nefarious deeds and ill intent. When you apologise, are you happy when some one throws it back into your face and calls you a cunt?

    But the sci-fi I am talking about is space exploration, space wars, and space colonization!

    In some instances yes, but in some instances the creativity shown is fucking amazing, add to that a wild imagination and long after the film/book/programme has finished, the individual can still continue the story.

    Or maybe thats just me

    I just pictured Event Horizon for some reason. Or that one where they have to save the sun.

    That could be cool though. Like they learn the history of some ancient civilization, THEN, the more they come to understand it the more they morph into the modern day version, reviving the society as a new powerful entity! Only a few people, the dummies, who are not affected by progress, can see the changes occuring, and start on a crucial mission to save existence!!!!


    Or something. Lol.

    Exactly. You can do anything with science fiction, so long as lasers are involved.

    Jenaphor go back and read all of your posts, just like you told me to do. You tell me to look for the defensiveness. Well why don't you go look for the condescension and superiority tripping and self-righteousness in yours?

    I told you why your apology seems shady to me. It seems backhanded. At this point, I feel that you are just trying to be right. It is very odd.

    Are your feelings actually hurt?

    And I've explained to you that I'm being forthright, no subterfuge or anything, wide open. Why are you determined to hold onto an inaccurate perspective? Why can't you ever meet me halfway?
