Over 1000 pieces! Why so many? Surely 999 is enough!

Posted in: 3D television: a new device, a new language See in context

Not into it.

While the 3D looks new and interesting, it makes the over all look and feel of the film feel fake.

I could not get 'into' any of the movies I have seen in 3D so far. Im hoping the technology gets much better.

Posted in: Kobayashi leaves jail after hot dog contest fracas See in context

I think security over reacted on this one.

He was likely pressured on stage by the audience or he was unjustly pushed out of the contest, and wanted to make a point.

Either way, a pose or two on stage should have been fine, I even think the organizers could of at least let him or shown a bit of respect to him since he was the one who made that event world famous in the first place.

Kobayashi is a champ

Posted in: Would-be thief asks store manager to report him to police See in context

Hmmmm, he is heavily in debt and decided to rob a convenience store?

I dont think the $200-$300 he would have got would have gone very far.

Sounds like a cry for help to me, or a Im too chicken to talk to my wife. Either way this is so much better than the other options.

I don't see what all the fuss is about with these donuts. I really don't like them.

Are they very popular in the states? Or are there better brand donuts?

The german Goalie knew the ball was over the line and played on anyway. How disgraceful!

For a World Game, the sportsmanship qualities are rubbish! Lying, cheating, and so much diving!

Time for a revamp of all the rules!

If the goal had counted it would have been 2 all. It would have been a very different game! England would not have pushed all their men up and had been open to the counter.

Posted in: How come so many people were prepared to write off Japan's chances at the World Cup before the tournament even began? See in context

As in all world cups, its not the constant preforming, but the build up. Japan has been building up nicely.

It is natural for Japanese not to be so confident anyway.

It has been a great world cup, and apart from those pesky horns, South Afrika has put on a great show! I would like to congratulate and thank them fore a great show so far!

Looking forward to the finals!!

Go Japan!!!!!!!

What a mess. I thought there was an election this year anyway?

Not a classy way to get a so called first female prime-minister.

In my mind this one doesn't count.

Good job! This guy should get a good samaritain award!

He asked nicely, the other guy was rude, then the rude got what he asked for!

Feel free to let loose on all those smokers in non-smoking places too.

Some people are too arrogant and the need to be shown the light, or in this case the stars!

I dont see how understanding how the solar system works, helps us do anything. I keep asking but I keep getting blanket responses.

More pressing issues would be food, medicine, environment, race relations etc.

Like the classic physics argument states, there is nothing you can do to prove the earth isn't a sub atomic part of a turtle, and what does that turtle stand on? Another turtle, its turtles all the way down baby! So why do people continue to ask "what is the turtle standing on?" ???

Yes technology is important, succeed or fail. But you don't need to blow that amount to see if this technology works.

Im just trying to put things into perspective. They could have tested this technology without the end game, thus saving millions of dollars for more IMPORTANT research.

There have been tremendous advances in technology since we explored space travel, but nothing from what any of the "successes" brought us back!

Surely we can learn to do this research more efficiently.

Without asking, researching and discovering we would have remained in caves painting

I agree with you there. I even agree it was a great feat to achieve this project. But still seems like a lot of money for no obvious advantage.

Feeding people, obvious advantage.

Research a disease, obvious advantage.

Collect some dust off an astoroid, ???

Any advantage apart from building a really cool toy?

What information have they got from all the other explorations they have done so far? Nothing!

Its like trying to discover what was before the big bang. Who cares? Its not relevant to anything. Just enjoy your life and stop asking stupid questions.

As Stephen Hawkins said, "it's irrelevant to think about time before the big bang"

You really don't see how knowing as much as possible about a threat to all life on our planet might be a good idea?

No I don't think this will help avoid the doom of the Earth. We already know it's a massive rock, how does a dust sample help us avoid it?

Thanks Bobcatfish, I should have said meteorite

Wow, 200 million dollars for some "Dust"!!!

Does anyone believe this will help mankind in anyway?

Dont we have asteroids already hitting and landing on Earth for free? Surly we could just study those rocks and put the cash somewhere needed!
