"Best, you keep using that word..."

Gave up watching after the first five movies made me go "are you kidding me?"

None of those sequels were better - some didn't even qualify as watchable (I'm looking at you, Ace Ventura II).

"They don't need to be perfect, they just need to be better than us." Well, yes and no.
Unfortunately - given our rather litigious society - the first unmanned "auto" on the streets that hits/kills somebody is going to be followed by the first lawsuit against the company that built it. It doesn't matter that human driven cars may have killed ten, twenty, a hundred times as many people at the same time, the "auto" company will be sued - and probably lose the lawsuit.

So they're not going to have to be just "better than us," they are going to have to be a lot better than us.

Still, the age of people having jobs is coming to an end. And - if we don't want civilization to follow - so too should be the age of money.

To be fair, Airbending was equal in power to the other three up until Aang came along (ironically, perhaps) because up until then, they had a lock on airpower. That's a pretty big advantage.

But now, everyone and their brother can get on an airship or an airplane, so that advantage is gone. This "Ghost recon" thing might restore the balance, but we'll have to see.

"How do you think the world would be if Godzilla existed?" Honestly, given that him existing requires almost all known physical laws to be different...so different from our world we can't even compare the two.

A small point. I hate the expression "you can't have your cake and eat it too" because if you can't eat the cake what is the point of having the cake? It's not a decoration, it's a dessert.

I liked this so much, I went off and did a more detailed (i.e., more text) "Alternate History" where Disneyland closed for an Alternate History apa I'm in ("Point of Divergence").

It's here - http://home.earthlink.net/~trolleyfan2/data/disneydecay.pdf - at my website.
I was, as all my friends were, very saddened by the closing of Disneyland in California a while back. So I enthusiastically jumped at the opportunity to visit the old abandoned park recently and well... It turned out to be the most depressing thing I have ever done.

Only potential problem I can see is that when going down, the safety barrier doesn't come up until after you roll right up to the edge of the steps to push the button. You might want to set up the "call" button a bit farther back, just in case.

Best dentist around. I've been going to him for the better part of a quarter-century, through three (or was it four?) office locations. Everyone is helpful, cheerful, and more than willing to work with you on your problem. And I have never, *ever* had to wait more than twenty minutes past my appointment before being seen - and even that was a one-off rarity, usually I'm in the chair and being worked on within five minutes. Heck, this last time at my appointment time I was in, in the chair, and out again in half-an-hour flat. My wife's old Dentist, after a half-an-hour, you'd have been lucky to have someone come by to tell you how long you'll have to wait. Find *that* at another doctor's/dentist's office! If you want affordable, quality work - and don't want to sit around for two-hours waiting for your "appointment" to actually start - Dr. Nelson's is the place.
