The theory of everything is a prank about "making a dumb poorly written oscar bait soap opera movie" that went way too far. The dude who played the terrible underwritten main non-character seemed fine.

I think that was my exact feeling also, right down to quitting after two. I dont usually like dry scifi thats more sci than fi, but the original does a great job of playing out the mystery... and I wasnt neccesarily looking for answers in a sequel as I liked the ambiguity, but the sequel is just "heres a lot about NEW DUMB CHARACTERS about to DO THE FIRST BOOK AGAIN" pointless.

Yeah every "twist" was more than well telegraphed, but it was still an enjoyable episode with Hamm really adding a lot of charm to the usually fairly limited characters.

I like how within the one big episode format they still kept to the "one interesting story, one simple one, one really stupid one that doesn't even really make sense that doesn't actually change in any way if you take out the scifi thing" tradition.

I will be around in America from like 6-15 dec, I will be coming into the city proper like the seventh on the evening I think and staying in Manhattan.

I have tapped up the PWOT NY crew (your Tangas and bettycams) who will be representing and I have some other friends out there I will be seeing but I am up for hanging with anyone whos free at anywhere they suggest is cool.

My main plans so far are museums and problem drinking, the two main hobbies of an Englishman.

History's handsomest garbage man.

I'm (probably) going to be in NY the second week of December as I have some annual leave to burn and that seems a fancy enough place for me to visit now I am an important businessman and know one or two folks out there to press gang into tour guiding.

I dont know if any DMers are close enough to fest, or just have some advice about stuff to do/visit. My plans so far are just "burn America" and "find that King Kong shackled up show from the movie, looked pretty great".

I know America is some horrible poverty wasteland where tipping isnt a "good job, have some money" thing but a "they dont have workers rights here, this is essentially mandatory" thing, but I doubt most visiting people would. Maybe you should put it on the little immigration form, where we have to tick we arent a nazi war criminal.

To be fair to the world we live in, that movie looks awful.

I was legitimately concerned it would never end, come on Boro, I need to sleep.

(good game)

(we should have won in the normal time, and you should have gotten clear in the extra)

Pretty good vote anyway, right answer, lots of engagement and hopefully the lesson is a step towards more regionalism concerns and voting system reforms.

Happy with that, especially specifically enslaving Sanchez to our imperial English wiles.

I thank the Scottish people for fighting for my freedom to have my own fancy office, this result means a lot to me.
17  Forum / Sanctum Sanctorum / Re: So Scotland may very well leave the UK in 10 days on: September 18, 2014, 03:18 pm
I just found out in a meeting today if they vote yes my company is pulling all its offices from Scotland and the staff will be moved down to us, which means I will lose my fancy office probably and have to sit in the "open floor" seating like a junior manager animal.

This vote just got REAL.

Dont split on us, bro.

Also we should immediately make The Doctor switch to an English accent if it passes.

18 months to sort out "what you voted for exactly" is my problem, failing to provide some sort of definitive mandate is dodgy as hell. Largely debunked economic dangers is not a statement that can be true as obviously we are dealing with a lot of predictive elements when we still dont know what the plans for independence are economically or what the split of debt/resources would be, its a long term problem, I hope England would be savvy enough to realise while a lot of concessions economically to a new independent Scotland wont exactly be "fair" but will be in our long term interest not to have a bankrupt state by us ... ditto for doing what we can to get you into EU.

We dont really know if you can readily rejoin the EU as a straight transfer and under what conditions if so (like taking the Euro). I guess you could apply for some sort of exception for the Euro and be shoehorned in, it would seem logical but I assume states like Spain would fight the hell out of it for obvious reasons.

I would also like Scotland to take the Euro if it went independent, not for any economic reasons, it will just be so much easier to get rid of than Scottish notes.
