    These are three very strange options :)

    I saw this one. An undercover cop from NY investigates claims of living dinosaurs that turn out to be ancient aliens.

    If I could watch, I would vote Ancient Aliens. I always heard of Modern Aliens but never Ancient ones before!

    The sequel is where the aliens end up escaping into NY and terrorising the city, only to later befriend a boy and his flying bike, then leaving in peace.

    Done deal everyone :). The movie for this week is Ancient Aliens, Episode 1!

    You can watch it on youtube or use whatever legal means you prefer to get a hold of it!

    Chat about it here, or in the actual chatroom.

    Gwaaah! :cry::mad::cry:

    From around 8:30:00 to around 10:30:00 the show seems to explain its own their own abomination of a technique that the show itself seems to follow as a rule (up to where I am so far anyway). Allow me to exaggerate a little (just a little) in a hypothetical conversation to express my point.

    Mr. Narrator:
    How could it be that civilizations living 4000 years ago knew that two plus two is equal to five? How could a primitive civilization have known Maxwell's equations of electromagnetic field theory and used it to harness electricity, or build a modern computer running Red Hat Linux? That would be tantamount to finding a jet airplane in the tomb of King Tut! And whom was these non-natural, enormous, structures, only visible from high altitudes, detailing the complete scripts of the both series "Melrose Place" and "The OC," intended for?​
    Me:
    But Mr. Narrator, the claims you are making are incorrect. Nobody claimed that 2+2=5. Nor did any ancient civilization build a computer (as we know it today). Nor any of the other stuff. You're making unfounded assumptions. They are misleading.​
    Mr Narrator:
    I'm not making any assumptions/claims. I'm just asking questions. Did you not see the question marks? There were 3 question marks in my last set of statements; did you not count them? Okay, so now we're in agreement about the number of question marks, I must be telling the truth. So now that we agree that Aliens were an integral part of ancient society, where did they come from?*
    *(Don't forget to notice the question mark in that last sentence, meaning I'm not making a claim, but rather just asking a question.)​

    I'm not sure I'm going to make it through the whole show.** :yuck:

    **Or, could it be that I will make it through the whole show?

    I ended up falling asleep about half way through. In the show's defense, I was quite tired when I started watching it (as might be evident by several grammar mistakes in my previous post).

    But I suppose we have 'till next week to finish watching it, right?

    Some experts claim that the show isn't as bad as it looks and sounds.
     
  15. Oct 16, 2012 #14
    Lol, that expert is Jimmy Snyder.

    But no Jurassic Park votes? Come on people, am I the only one that loves dinosaurs?

    Who cares about green midgets when you have amazing gigantic beats prowling around?

    But seriously, not a horrible exhibition of theories, but horribly presented.
    I enjoyed the broken city with the exceptional machined-stone the best. As a casual machinist, I wish I could have been there to see them stressing out about every cut.

    What ever happened to movie night? Should we pick a movie for next week?
     
  18. Oct 30, 2012 #17
    I forgot about movie night, so... Are we just watching the movie and reporting back? It would seem like I'd be spending money to watch a film "thinking" others are watching at the same time. No reflection, just lonely-self and popcorn, and my imagination?
