March of the Penguins II NC-17


Quote:
Penguins' Explicit Sex Acts Shocked Polar Explorer

Hidden for nearly 100 years for being too "graphic," a report of "hooligan" behaviors, including sexual coercion, by Adelie penguins observed during Captain Scott's 1910 polar expedition has been uncovered and interpreted.

The naughty notes were rediscovered recently at the Natural History Museum in Tring, in England, and published in the recent issue of the journal Polar Record..."As it was boldly headed 'Not for Publication' it immediately caught my eye," Douglas Russell, who discovered the pamphlet, told LiveScience....penguins' autoerotic tendencies, and the seemingly aberrant behavior of young unpaired males...necrophilia...non-procreative sex...homosexuality
Huh

I'm sorry to hear that Caleb. Once you've clicked on the link, Mark Zuckerberg makes your interest in Penguin Necrophelia part of your permanent record...soon you'll be getting repulsive spam ads from the N.A.A.N.: the National Association of Avian Necrophiles. Wink

Darth Vader: Your ride is here.


...
The UK's Skylon space plane currently under development with the European Space Agency.
http://www.reactionengines.co.uk/skylon.html

...
Check out the size of the Skylon in comparison to other spacecraft! The design looks very much like the spaceplanes of 1950's and 60's science fiction, so much so that on this blog by serious aerospace engineers, one even suggests that the sled and parobolic track launching method used in "When Worlds Collide" would be a more efficient method of launching it.

Scroll down the comment by "Silverthorn" It is supported by others and serves as a great response to people who think science fiction is silly. Smiley

Ah, the good old Harvard Square Theater. Double features, rock films like MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR & THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME, midnight shows....

Surprised it lasted this long under the Loew's and AMC banners. These chains only care about maximizing profits - not historical preservation or the movie-going pleasures of their neighbors.

Blade Runner: Which predictions have come true?

Quote:
It's been 30 years since the release of Blade Runner and 10 years since Minority Report. Both are rich sources of predictions about the future. But what has actually come to pass?


Holy Crap! Minority Report is ten years old.

Americans favour Obama to defend against aliens

Quote:
NEARLY two in three Americans think President Barack Obama is better suited than Republican rival Mitt Romney to deal with an alien invasion, according to a survey released today.

Soon to be Already has been a Roger Corman Film:

Quote:
Bizarre fish with scary-looking teeth throw scare into lake community

The discovery of an alien fish species in a small lake in Illinois has put locals and tourists on edge because the fish posses dangerous-looking teeth and bear a striking resemblance to ravenous piranha...Lake superintendent Jim Caldwell, sounding a bit like the Amity Island mayor in Jaws, assured that everything's OK, adding that he has a small swim in the lake regularly.

Are you ready for a video called...

"Seven Minutes of Terror!"

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/mars-rover-landing-seven-minutes-terror-194... Shocked

Once you sit through the irritating ad, the seven minute video really is worth watching. Just think: it takes 14 minutes for a signal from Mars to reach Earth, so by the time we receive the Rover's "entering Mars' atmosphere" message next month it's already the largest and most sophisticated landing craft ever to reach another planet or a hunk of junk smoldering in a crater far far away. Shocked

Somewhere William Castle is smiling.....

4-D Movies: Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!

What is a 4-D movie?

Quote:
"It refers to physical effects that are coordinated with the images on the screen that involve your other senses," says media analyst and entertainment lawyer James Hirsen. "It is things like moving seats during a chase scene, the smell of gun powder when there is an explosion on the screen and during a spooky foggy scene you are surrounded by real fog."...seats equipped with back, neck and leg ticklers...


http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/4-d-movies-coming-soon-theater-near-...

Didn't they try this at the West Newton Marathon one year? I'm sure I felt real pain during one of the torture scenes in "Demonlover". Wink
