    Canadian Federal Election

    paul just dropped out as leader of the liberals he is still representing his riding. And i think the results means another election in a year or two :P i deffently think the liberals, block and ndp will want them out ASAP and it sounds like they have some rather strong bills they want to pass which will cause a strong reaction from the opposition.

    The best DivX/XviD media players

    mplayer is totally sweet too, although not so much in windows, otherwise awesome. can run it from command line, which is sweet, if you like that kind of thing, and lots of options for different gui.

    Has Science Fiction changed?

    its just harder to remember the alien vs. predators of the past, they were there though, things like that get easily forgotten though.

  9. the real question is should science fiction have actual fiction?
  10. To me, there is no such thing as "fictional science" or "false science". Science is the search for truth/understanding about the universe/reality. Either it's true science or it's false fantasy. Science & falsehoods don't mix. If I was watching Trek, and suddenly I heard them say, "Flies spontaneously generate from rotten meat" or "We can cure disease by bleeding-out the bad ethers", I would call that a travesty. That's not Science. Those are lies. And finally "technobabble" = meaningless words = nothing. Worthless. I see no reason to include babble... just use the *actual words*. the hardest science fiction i've ever read, all has false science in it, it takes current science and says what if?? or makes up a new science some sort of new discovery. What you are describing is a romantic comedy about a nerdy female scientist discovering her inner beauty. and you can expect people to go flying around in science fiction, the difference is its explained in science fiction using some sort of science, real or not. In fantasy it is not explained or explained not using science.
  11. Yes it should, or fictional science. But i disagree with both your examples of futuristic fantasy. Either you need to broaden your definition of science, or remember science isn't using scientific terminology. Otherwise you cast alot of the great science fiction literature of the years into the pit of "futuristic fantasy", included in that is the Frank Herberts Dune Series, and Issac Asimov's Foundation series. WHat makes those classic books science fiction is the same thing that makes battlestar galactica science fiction. Even Star Wars is science fiction and for some of the same reasons, its alot lighter science fiction, still sci-fi all the same though.
