If the Deep Web were Knoebels, bitcoins would be the tickets. Or if you don't know what Knoebels is, bitcoins are the Deep Web's version of arcade tokens, except you're supposed to trade them with other people, and (I'm pretty sure) you can't trade them back for real world currency.

Tony hit the nail on the head.

We can go in the other direction, as well. Let's say we live 2000 years in the future, granted we haven't blown ourselves up by then (even 100 years would likely suffice). We happen to have a time machine at our disposal and are going to bring back all sorts of neat technologies with us to 2011 CE because even after 2000 years, we still aren't a particularly wise species. Even though all of those technologies can be perfectly explained using science, it would be nigh impossible for us to explain it all because our scientific advancement is so much further ahead than theirs. The people of 2011 won't have a chance at understanding those advanced sciences, so the we may as well be performing rather fancy magic. You can also think of it like this: it's similar to (though hardly alike) The Doctor trying to explain to one of his companions precisely how the TARDIS (or even time itself) works.

Elf. What in the shitcakes were they smoking when they decided airing that (TWICE!! (thankfully not in the same day)) would be a good idea? Because whatever the hell it was, I want some.

That first one's more of a kick in the pants than a shitting of the pants, don't'cha think? But I will concede that maximum sadness will be had whenever (if ever) they air.

Also, I don't know much (or anything, really) about Captain America, but I gotta say, the new movie is looking like it's gonna be pretty ok. Well, at least better than the Green Lantern...

Well, I think they should be allowed to show fantasy fiction as well, not just science fiction. But I'm not talking about Elf fantasy (seriously, why the fuck was it on there?!), I'm talking about Lord of the Rings fantasy.

Ok, I'm really not surprised so many people are so disappointed about NASA's press conference, but it's just plain silly. We just found a new species that we previously believed impossible to exist. Do you realize what that means!? We have to reevaluate everything we currently know about biological chemistry. This is bigger than finding extraterrestrial life because we were previously looking for life as we knew it. It would be cool, but kinda boring, kinda bland. "Eh, we already know how this works; it's neat we found this, and it's proof life exists on other worlds, but let's keep going, see if we can find more." But this... This is brand. Frakking. NEW.

Ok, not entirely brand new, since the only difference is arsenic in place of phosphorous, but still. Arsenic? That's prephsophorous!
