Question of the Week

If given the chance to live on another planet, say a new colony on Mars, or further, would you?

Works of fantasy have caught on in our culture to the point that they have establish informal bias.  In an effort to understand this I would challenge consumers to contemplate this next item.  Why do authors shy away from creating female orcs, dwarves, and other mythical beings that might assert a leading role?

UFO Ep12 Close Up

Skydiver on the surface trying out the hydrofoil and some crew members that should not wear the mesh shirts…just saying.  Eternal Optimist Straker is having lip sync issues in this episode.  I would like you to notice the dome structure Cmdr Straker is pointing out with his middle finger.  My Electron Telescope for 1 billlllllllion dollars.  SHADO uses NASA for the big launch.  Straker brought his personal lackey Ford up to MoonBase.  Doesn’t trust Purple Haired help?  Time to shove the electron camera into the probe orifice…stand back!!  Now let’s find a UFO and do the same thing.  Straker wants a date with Lt. Gay.  Meanwhile, a couple of near misses are enough to send the big bad UFO home not noticing a pitiful Earth probe in pursuit?  Excellent.  Oops, no one switched on the range and magnification on your billion dollar camera and now your pictures are meaningless.  How’s this report going to go in review?  Lt. Gay’s leg was pretty awesome.
