If a vessel of your choice were to suddenly appear in front of you and offer to take you with them, would you go? And what/who would it be with?

I've complied a slightly longer than short list of options, you are of course not limited to these, they are just merely some examples:

Enterprise (please specify which one and it's captain)
Voyager
Defiant
TARDIS (please specify which Doctor it'd be piloted by)
Prometheus
Daedalus
Galactica
Pegasus
Colonial One
Millenium Falcon
Tantive IV
Death Star
Executor
Serenity
Moya
Heart of Gold
Andromeda Ascendant
White Star
Sulaco

As if I'd even have to explain which one I'd pick ;P It'd be the TARDIS for sure. I mean it travels in time and space and it's bigger on the inside than the outside and that's just for starters. The possibilities would be endless. It would also have the Doctor in it. Ten, of course ;)

From what little I can find on the subject, alternate universes in Doctor Who seem to function similar to those in other shows/movies. We have "our" universe and there are mirror universes where things are pretty close but just a bit off from "ours". And travel between alternate universes should basically be impossible except for the breach between "our" universe and the one where Rose gets trapped. Alright, we have "our" universe with the Doctor, Rose, Mickey, Jackie etc.. and the "other" universe where Pete is alive, Jackie is turned Cyberman, Rickey is Mickey & the absence of Rose (the dog not counted) so my question is if there could be an alternate version of the Doctor (or other Time Lords even) in this "other" universe. Or do the the Time Lords exist outside of alternate universes? If so, what binds them to "our" universe instead of other parallel ones?

The only bit I could really find on the subject mainly stated how different DW serials that have dealt with alternate universes have contradicted each other in how they work. And I'm just curious. :D

If you had the powers of Q, what would you do?

By the way the Q are a species from Star Trek who are immortal, omnipotent and can pretty much do anything you can imagine. That said, every thing's game :P

ahh the words of a wise Jedi Master. So the debate about Pluto, is it a planet or isn’t it? It seems most recently this topic of discussion has become quite popular. I’m not sure what to make of it just yet really, on one hand it’s like I grew up learning that Pluto is the 9th planet in our Solar System and that’s that. On the other hand does it really matter so much if it gets demoted from its status as a planet to a dwarf planet?

One thing that interests me though is wondering why there have been such large gaps in between the discovery of its moons and other trans-Neptunian objects and why there hasn’t been a clear definition for what is a planet until now. I suppose it’s mostly due to the discoveries of other bodies they are finding in recent years but I do wonder why the large stretch in time. I may be off a bit in the time frame here, but Pluto was discovered in 1930, Charon in the late 70’s and then it was just a couple years ago when the other two moons where discovered. It seems like a rather large gap when they were able to identify Pluto all the way back in the 30’s.

I don’t know, it’s probably just best to leave it alone, let Pluto be the one exception to the new rule. I do think the discovery of new stuff in space is cool and I hope the continuing interest in the space program keeps growing. I can’t help it, I want to know what’s up there!

In other totally unrelated events, the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin has died from a Stingray barb to the heart while filming a documentary off the Great Barrier Reef. I’ve always thought the guy has done some dumb things before but still wow. I feel sorry for his wife and kids.

So if there is a shield/iris active on the stargate, is there a backwash of energy through the wormhole after it hits said shield/iris? And what would it do to the other side?

Because all I've been hearing lately seems to be about the safety issues stemming from websites like MySpace and Facebook, I feel prompted to share my opinion. Do I agree that there is a problem with the amount of personal information that people are sharing online in such communities? Yes. The news has been running rampant with how these sites need to be shut down and action must be taken immediately to protect people.

However, I don’t necessarily believe that it is the websites fault 100%, should they have warnings of such dangers? Of course, but do people read them when they are present? No. Is a 10 year old going to lie to sign up for a site that says 14 and over? Sure. There really isn’t much more they can do, it’s left in the users and the parents hands after that.

Adults of course should be fully capable of deciding what to and not to share, though it's where children/adolescents are concerned that seems to be where the problem lies. Understandably so, I wouldn't want my kids to be putting all sorts of stuff like that out there for any Joe Blow to read. It can't be reasonable to stick all sorts of personal info on a webpage and think that other people aren't going to look at it and possibly take advantage of it. Here's the kicker though, parents need to actually parent their children and know and be involved with what's going on in their kids' lives. If a child is sharing sensitive information, they need to be instructed on the dangers of it and taught what is right and wrong from the start.

Time and technology may have changed but the dangers are still the same, just now it may be a bit more easily accessible. For example, when you were 10 years old, you wouldn’t walk up to some stranger on the street and announce your age, school, hobbies, address, phone # etc… so why would you put it on the internet? Parents just need to be aware of what their kids are doing, don’t blame the website because they put all their personal info on it instead you should be more concerned about why they didn’t know better in the first place. It all comes down to responsibility again, it just seems to me that no one wants to be responsible for their own actions anymore, they just want to blame others and go on. Sigh.

U.S. Olympic medal count: 15 total, 7 gold, 5 silver, 3 bronze. Last night my favorite pair took the silver in Ice Dancing, it's the first medal for the U.S. in thirty years in Ice Dancing. I've really enjoyed the whole sport this time around, most teams did quite well and were enjoyable to watch. U.S. men are in the semi-finals for Curling, going back up against Canada for at least a silver medal.

So I was reading on Yahoo news that McDonalds is being sued again. I suppose being a large corporation such as McD, you would more likely be the target of such suits. But I mean come on people give it a rest, it annoys me to see people sueing left and right for anything they can think of. Is it not your own personal responsibility if you have a food allergy to check and make sure your not eating something you shouldn't? If McD changed their recipe, should they send out a handwritten notice to everyone that may or may not eat their food stating so? I dunno, it just seems to me that people are too lazy to do things for themselves and want others to hand them everything. Oh and the one who is sueing because she eats no animal products and wouldn't have done so if she had known they were made with dairy products needs to just get over it. pfft.
