I just want to know when can I go to Arakkis?
Why?  That is one of the worst planets in that universe.   I would not want to go there, Salusa Secundus, or Giedi Prime...

not to detract from the sex ITT, but this would be pretty damn cool if I understood what the hell they are talking about http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/gravitational-waves-discovered-from-colliding-black-holes1/

here, ya want nerdy?  i read about astrophysics, cosmology, particle physics, and the like in my spare time.  getting my teenage hands on Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" was a life-changing event for me... so, i'm one of the dorks who are giddy about the the confirmation of the existence of gravity waves.

an important take-away from today's LIGO announcement is that it gives us a whole new way of looking at the universe, a whole new set of information to analyze and investigate.  it's not just the inherent value to today's anouncement that is giving astro-dorks big boners, but also the doors this will open for future discoveries. 

There are going to be some kids born on the spectrum 9 months from now for sure!       

this is one of the funniest things you've posted here in a while ;D

have you seen the documentary on Jodorowsky's Dune? If not, check it out. Interesting take on the Dune universe and what might have been instead of Lynch's interpretation

I have yet to watch it.  I plan on it though.

I love Lynch's vision/movie.  I also love the book series (and the prequels/stuff his kid and KA wrote...). 

I will take whatever Dune I can get.  The SciFi Network miniseries were both fun. 

I wish each book of the series would get their own Syfy Networkor HBO or Netflix season.    God Emperor of Dune would be NUTS.

Jodorosky had Mick Jagger set to play Feyd Rautha, Salvadore Dali as Shadam IV, and Orson Wells as Baron Harkonnen lol

I have seen previews of the documentary and read a bit about it.  It does sound like it really would have been something else.

I will say I find a certain pleasure knowing that a Kanye album might not be available to the public

Everything was great about that episode, save for maybe the hand job in the theater.
