Yes!
The theory of evolution by cumulative natural selection is the only theory we know of that is in principle capable of explaining the existence of organized complexity.

So, I guess it's just me and the follically challenged one.

Tomorrow night I work until 8:15, so I'd be out anyway.

Sleep.
Worked Friday, home, up at 5:00
back at work at 7:00, got home started laundry
and just work up from the couch.
Probably a little too late now.
Hope you guys enjoyed the movie.

Curt and I went late Fridy night. It was decent. I didn't like the "Blair Witch" style cinematograpy, but they cooled it down after a while so it was fine. It was a good story, the aliens and alien weaponry were cool. It was a bit "splattery", but I don't mind that as long as it doesn't detract from the story. Pretty well done over all. Not a future classic by any means, but worth watching.

Bill and I saw a matinee.
Although I don't believe I
am qualified to be a critic
of the film, I do have one
thing to say about it:

Yummy!
Cat Food!

I'm not afraid to critique! 8)

The splatter factor was :thumbsup:

Not :puke:


Sequel? "District 10"? :roll:

Story bugs:
Why didn't MNU go to Wikus's wife to get to him?
How did both species understand each other's speech so clearly?
(Granted 20 years of contact, I assume it's just assumed. But..???)


Mmmmmm! Prawns!


Vanessa Haywood is hot!

BTW, still fighting with a trogan on my computer,
so wish me luck.
