Finally, preppers have found a Slashdot poll designed specifically for them.
I wonder if they were ready for that.
Metal detectors contain metal parts!
I don't know how they can stand it. If I was a metal detector that would drive me crazy.
Yeah! It's like how I can't use a stud finder.
Spock and Uhura was implied, though never outright shown, in the original series.
Implied where? In Charlie X? That was just playful flirting as a performance for the people in the recreation room.
The problem is that JJ Abrams didn't make a movie for Star Trek fans. He made a movie for movie fans. So let's stop calling it a "reboot", or a "reimagining", because it is nothing of the sort.
was a failure in several key areas, like believable physics

There's a very easy way to avoid all sorts of "conflict[s] of What Trek Is versus What Trek Isn't" - don't watch it.
B...b...but it says Star Trek in the title. Not watching it is not an option.
JJ may have made a popular movie, but it wasn't Trek, and it wasn't a successful reboot.
Why a towing company would want to subscribe to Comcast, I don't know...

The polls are obviously crucial market research being conducted by Dice.com in order to formulate their next marketing campaign.
Guess they should read their own disclaimers at the bottom of the survey, like This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.
So, in other words, no worse than any other sources of information that market researches use.
I've always been curious as to what the cutoff age is.
If a 1-year-old dying in an accident is a tragedy and a 25-year-old dying in an accident is just a statistic, when does it switch?
When they stop being cute.
