I was in high school when all of this went down. I don't really remember much, only the oft shown footage of the Branch Davidians shooting through the roof at federal agents and the fire that ended the standoff. I found this article interesting from a point of view that has not been touched on much ...

I had previously started a thread on Star Trek Voyager, and whether or not I should purchase the first season. It was stated that I should watch DS9 first. I got out of Star Trek after TNG ended. I tried watching Enterprise when it first came out, but was bored enough that I gave it up early in the ...

on NetFlix. Not a bad movie. Pretty good for a relatively low budget sci fi flick. But wasn't this story basically stolen from the book 2010? In the book, a spaceship lands on Europa to mine the water for its ion engine. When they land, a creature attracted to the lights on the ship attacks it, then...

They were really on the ball. From using Neck between downs, and whatever that song was they were playing on defensive 3rd down.
