Heh.  I just rewatched Blade Runner last night.  It's on the list.  There are a bunch of others that didn't make it like Brazil.
Five of cinema's most memorably grim depictions of mankind's future. What others belong on the list?

Actually, the title ought to be, Why doesn't Venus have a moon?
There are dozens upon dozens of moons in the Solar System, ranging from airless worlds like Earth's Moon to those with an atmosphere (most notably, Saturn's Titan). Jupiter and Saturn have many moons each, and even Mars has a couple of small asteroid-like ones. But what about Venus, the planet that ...

My uneducated guess is that Venus (and Mercury) are within that zone where a satellite orbit is not possible, that the gravitational pull of the sun is too strong for one to maintain an orbit around either planet.

Women (and minorities) who want to be accepted and rise in the Republican party usually have to bend over backward to make sure nobody thinks they are going to threaten the white male power base. It will eventually be the kiss of death to the party because they can't adjust to changing times and demographics, but politicians are realists when it comes to their own careers. This Republican party is not afraid to shoot itself in the foot over and over in pursuit of some vague sense of purity and loyalty.
