I dunno, I've always been kind of fond of him and his activism, and thought the break-up with Diana was merely unfortunate and sad, not a sign of his perfidy...OTOH, I also think his mum has more decades in her than he does, so I figure it's a moot point. Since William, at the moment, doesn't want the throne, his brother will likely be the next British monarch. Incidentally, in contrast to one loud-mouthed commenter on the story, I don't believe the CBC should be shut down merely because some guy made a documentary which doesn't represent this Canadian's opinion.

...In the latest episode of FlashForward, did anyone else get slammed in the face* by the lesbian FBI agent (Janis Hawk) dating the lesbian restaurant cook? The agent, mind you, who, at the end of that episode, SPOILER CUTCollapse )

[*] In a good way, that is. It was a very nice slam in the face, and I'd enjoy getting more such slams. Many of them, in fact. A few thousand will do.

Hail Eris!

The so-called "War on Science Fiction", allegedly being waged by wicked, wicked women (and Teh Ghey) who want to insert their << GASP! >> cooties into the manly genre of sci-fi, specifically on TV, even more specifically on the SyFy channel, as though science fiction on TV is some sort of bastion of machismo which women aren't supposed to enter (which it may have been, back in the 1960's, for about ten minutes, until the guys woke up and realised Verity Lambert had already invaded the treehouse). Anyway, if the Manly Men want machismo, they've got wrestling. If they want hard skiffy, they've got many decades' worth of Star Trek and Doctor Who, just for starters, and if they want new, macho, hard skiffy, I'm sure there are beers at the nearest bar/tavern/pub just waiting for the Manly Men to cry in 'em. The days of outright, bloody-minded macho men dominating TV, much less sf, are gone now, and good riddance to the 1950's and '60's. But that's not what
this post is about.

Anyway, "A Boy's Own Genre, Or Not", is here: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2009/10/13/a-boys-own-genre-or-not/
"The War On Science Fiction And Marvin Minsky" (by an Anonymous Coward) is on a men's rights site which I will not link (carrying on a tradition of ignoring the Manly Men of Small Minds and Smaller Penises (well, ignoring them anywhere they can see), begun by Scalzi), but which I expect you can find easily enough, if subjecting yourself to the verbal gymnastics of men who are desperate to find a way to justify their misogyny and homophobia without ever having to name them as such, when faced with people who repeatedly refute the arguments said verbal gymnasts make, is really what turns your crank (it didn't turn mine hard enough for me to do more than glance at a number of posts, but I got the gist).

There be more under the fold...Collapse )

Your result for The Steampunk Archetype Test...

The Crazy Clockwork Tinkerer

9 Swashbuckling Engineer, 62 Crazy Clockwork Tinkerer, 13 Charming Noble, 42 Roguish Pirate, 8 Mechanical Fian and 42 Aetherist Bodger!

What is life? If something simulates life so well that no one knows that it is simulated and treats it like it were alive, would that be just like life? And if you were the one to create this simulated life, would that make you a god of some sort? Quite possibly, and that may be one of the many motivations behind your projects. Your clockwork mechanisms started off simple and cute, but as you attempted to replicate life in your machines, you created bigger mechanisms, golems of gears, that do your bidding. You are a genius, but a crazy genius.

What is your personal Power Stone?



ROSE QUARTZ is a lovely pink form of quartz (SiO2). The pink color is due to inclusions of manganese or titanium. Rose quartz is famous for being the stone of love. It has been used in love spells since ancient times. Given to a lover, it will ensure fidelity. One of the beneficial aspects of this stone is it's peaceful vibrations. It's almost impossible to stay angry for long in the presence of this stone. This is the 'happiness' gem. A piece of rose quartz kept near the front door will bestow happiness on the occupants of the house. Whenever calling upon Aphrodite, Venus, Eros, or any of the other god/desses of love, it's a good idea to hold or wear a piece of rose quartz. A rose quartz placed near a picture of your family will help improve harmony within the family. This is a very feminine, receptive stone under the influence of Venus. A gardener may place a rose quartz on the ground under a rose bush to help the flowers grow. Roses are sacred to Venus.
