What will humans be like in 100 years?  1000?  One million?  One trillion?My main reason for this discussion is to see if my thinking is that far off.  I’ve mentioned this subject several times before on Atheist Nexus, in relation to living forever,…Continue

Is it a ladder for us short people to get up onto the table?  There's a wrench in the works though, because I'm not sure if it would hold me.  lol  Other than that, I'm really not sure what it's suppose to be, so fork over the tools and I'll make a better ladder.  ;)

It took me a few seconds get this. How about you?

Thank you! I am new to the site, but loving it already.

About your previous post... I have seen Guardians of the Galaxy, too, and it is a great movie.

Also, over the holidays I saw "The Theory of Everything". I wasn't sure about it at first, as they said it has more "chemistry" than astrophysics... but it turned out to be brilliant.

Ignacio welcome to the group.

Comment by Joseph P on January 4, 2015 at 8:11am

I caught it for the first time, a week or two ago, myself.  Very light on the story-line, and there were plot-holes like crazy, but it was fun enough that I can overlook those.

Comment by Steph S. on January 3, 2015 at 9:09pm

I loved Guardians of the Galaxy.

Anyone see any movies over the holidays?

I forgot to mention that I am also a brass (marchiing) band fan....all my HS friends were in the band (well, 3 of my best friends were majorettes), so I learned to play the bass drum so I could go to the games on the band bus.

I love hearing the bands in the Rose Parade, and get snotty when Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards talk through/over the music.  (Otherwise I like Stephanie Edwards a LOT; she and her husband adopted 2 cats from the Cat Hotel when I was working there, and sent photos of them as they grew into lovely felines.  They are my Pumpkin's cousins.)

Meow! I also enjoy SF (and think that the Sci-Fi Channel's new name of "SyFy" accurately reflects its dumbing down).

Possibly of interest to some folks here: Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality -- what if Petunia married an Oxford biochemistry professor, and young Harry was a prodigy who grew up in a book-filled home learning science and reading SF... only to discover at age 11 that science's description of the universe was stunningly incomplete....

Welcome to the group sk8eycat. Glad to have you here.

Comment by sk8eycat on November 15, 2014 at 7:33pm

I don't know exactly what kind of nerd I am, I just know I am one.  I read SF ("sci-fi" is a dirty word!), fantasy, and some mysteries, love classical ballet, the way figure skating was before it became a jumping contest, and science.
