Yes, the method where you come up with models with predictive power and test them against observation, as opposed to bring a pathetic loser who grape onto kookery in the vain hope that somehow it will make your intellectual laziness seem less obvious.

I spent years debating people like you, only to learn your type are too fundamentally pompous and inadequate to actually want to learn anything.

Any energy source that does not burn fossil fuels is for pinko commies, and the people designing and building them should immediately be taken out and shot! We must only use oil, coal and natural gas, and we should have a law that allows for summary execution of anyone who brings up wind, solar, AGW, or science. After all, we know God fucking hates greenies and wants us to kill all of them!

Fuck everyone who believes spewing CO2 into the atmosphere isn't a good, nay, incredibly great and healthy thing! We should kill all the climatologists right fucking now!!!!!

I'd say more, but I'm at risk of drowning in my own spittle.

Which doesn't explain why there is little or no chemistry between the actors, why an Englishman was cast as a character of Indian descent, why the cinematography makes it look like they were filmed by a twelve year old with a ten year old digital camera, and why, in general, the plots of both movies, where they are comprehensible at all, are daft and simplistic.

I watched all three completed Star Trek Continues series, and have to say, despite what are considerably smaller budgets, and by and large unknown actors, have done what Abrams and the big studios, with huge resources, have not, and that is to actually capture the spirit of Star Trek.

The super-duper Transporter is definitely the reboot franchise's midichloreans.

Frankly, I can't even be sure what the plot of the first movie was. There was this big fucking ship that screwed up the space-time continuum, so Kirk was a mean brat who turned out alright, except for cheating on the Kobiashi Maru test, which now earns him a big spanking, as opposed to the commendation in the other time line. And then blowing up Vulcan, Nimoy's Spock telling Kirk that the pointy-eared prick who has been trying to fuck him over is really his bestest buddy, and then big battle scenes and Enterprise wins. Yay!

My impression of both films was a mindless action film with a Star Trek pastiche shoved on top. Just a lot of incredibly short shots, pointless dialog that served only to push the ponderous plots on, and very little beyond a skim of "Trekiness" that would suggest I was watching Star Trek.

My wife and I finally got down to watching fanfic Star Trek Continues series. Now THAT'S Star Trek. I wish someone would give these guys the tens of millions of dollars it took to make Abram's abortions. They could bring in Karl Urban, because the McCoys they've had so far are iffy (who would have known Bones would have been the hardest character to find a new actor for).

Backed up the system lately?
