I have found that whenever someone issues an ultimatum, even if I don't disagree with their general position, that says something to the effect of "unfriend/uncircle me now if you don't agree with what I am about to state 100%," I still tend to remove them.

I don't like ultimatums.

I have uncircled a few people in these post-sage-circle days, based purely on how they introduced themselves. If someone needs to throw down an ultimatum as a condition for interacting with them, I'll just pass.

Watching Star Trek First Contact again, and it just occured to me that the Federation is less enlightened than it would seem.

In Star Fleet Academy they learn how to build Cochran's warp drive, and there are statues to him etc. I get that he's important to Earth, but that means everbody in the Academy is taught how great this guy is . . . But Vulcans and who know who else already had more advanced Warp drives.

I guess before I thought of the specifics of this movie, I figured most of the founding planets of the Federation were at a similar stage of development. If Vulcans were that far ahead, why doesn't everyone learn about the first Vulcan warp drive?

For that matter, why assume the Federation wouldn't have existed without Earth? Maybe if the Vulcans didn't have to put up with humans in their Federation, they would have isolated the Borg threat a long time ago.

This is why I shouldn't watch movies I have seen a thousand times when I'm sick and can't do anything.

It's been years since I saw it, so I don't recall who knew what about their visit from the future, but maybe the future Federation leaders had a partial record indicating that someone from the future of Starfleet helped Cochran, so they added the old drive to their curriculum to preserve the timeline?

+Ryan Porter, is this what philosophy classes are like, because if that's the case, I'd be hungry all the time.
 
And then there's Samuel Beckett: "Waiting for Godoughnut".  

Doughnut Philosophy, 101.

Rand - The ability to make of donuts is a product of man's capacity to think, and neither the moochers nor the looters have any claim on their making.  

Rawls - Behind a veil of ignorance, we would all agree that the greatest number of donuts should go to the hungriest members of society.

Nozick - Because property rights are a given, an unequal distribution of donuts is inevitable.

Watched Men in Black 2. Previously had only seen 1 and 3. Why did you guys let me do that? Ugh.

I think it's because there was no MIB2. It's an odd thing. They went straight from 1 to 3.

+Ryan Porter , this reminds me of that Deathwatch game at Winter War, except my Space Marine was much cooler about the whole incident.  ;)

I'd like to be more excited about season six of the Clone Wars being nigh on Netflix, buts its so frustrating to watch anything on Netflix right now I don't think I will be watching much at all.

+William Keller More stupid than that... series like Ben 10, where it's actually three different shows about the same character in different time periods... they have the first season of each show.

I have no trouble with Netflix streaming reliability, though sometimes the picture could be better.  But that's network latency

Man, I am getting really tired of hearing statements like, "now that the Star Wars EU is gone," or the equally wrong, "now that everything Star Wars is canon."

Lucasfilm wants one level of canon going forward. The story group is discusing how to make this happen and what it means for current projects. That's it. Any definite conclusion is conjecture at this point.

Personal canon is subjective, after-all. Ignore what you want, include what you want. 'Official' canon is simply one interpretation of a larger entity. This philosophy has kept me a Star Wars fan, despite the things I really, really don't like.

Google+ automatic hashtags provide so much unintentional comedy. I am picturing someone sitting at home after having a steel rod shoved through their leg looking up woundcare to see how often to change their dressing and getting variant rules for damage in RPGs.
