Comment BSG - Battle of Exodus (Score 1) 763

But the episode where the Galactica jumps into atmosphere, descends like a burning angel as it launches it's vipers, then jumps out again...man, if E. E. "Doc" Smith could have seen that episode, he would have died a happy man.
That scene where Galactica jumps into the atmosphere is from the Battle of Exodus. Now you can understand what's everyone ranting and raving about :) That was one heck of a season premiere.

Comment Write your legislators! (Score 3, Insightful) 560

We here on Slashdot tend to be too cynical, too willing to accept the fact that bad laws will be passed and there's nothing we can do about it. We need to write to our elected officials and let them know how we feel. We can actually help make a difference on issues if we simply take out a few minutes to let our feelings be known.

Teddy Roosevelt once said: "A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends upon the character of the user." So, make your letters well-written, well-reasoned arguments combined with impassioned pleas for your senator or representative to listen to logic, instead of a hate-filled diatribe as to why these bills are the root of all evil and they are just part of the machine dragging us further and further downward. Otherwise, we'll all be bystanders as this entire class of legislation is forced upon us.
