Hey, just what you see, pal.
2007-06-11 07:13:52 PM  
The early ones had rubber skin. They were easy to spot.

Sounds like a fancy description of plastic filled with glue capsules...

Great, so now Joan River's cyborg vagina can become self-replicating. At least it means we can finally take that annoying prototype/daughter out back and shoot her.

Not new.

I was all "awesome headline, awesome thread" until

LowbrowDeluxe: Great, so now Joan River's cyborg vagina can become self-replicating.

then I threw up.

/the 600 series had rubber skin
/the 800 series had flesh grown for them
/the 1000 series was liquid metal
/all were CSM-101, there was no T-101 morans!!

It's really not Fark, Mister Peejay, if you don't throw up a little in your mouth.

Problem is, it only lasts 99 minutes (props Sam Raimi).

labman: The early ones had rubber skin. They were easy to spot

So if the T-800 is so new, when did they develop the infinitely more advanced T-1000 and the chick Terminator? Answer me that, labman!

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to take it out on you.

If the time displacement thingy was supposed to only transport living matter, why didn't it send back a pile of loose flesh, leaving the non-living metal skeleton stuck in the future?

Or, if it could transport anything so long as there was an organic coating, why not turn one of those huge flying hunter-killer machines into a sort of malevolent cybernetic Chia Pet, and send that back?

BlueBook - the machines were desperate. The technology wasn't perfected. That's why they could only send back one Terminator, even, not four or five, let alone an HK.

BlueBook, the answer you seek can be found in a work of great excellence.

"How does it work?"
"Modern technology, William!"

Funniest headline Ive read in ages.

Congrats, smitty!
2007-06-11 09:42:47 PM  
I'm thinking more along the lines of Real Doll.

Excellent non-use of "find Sara Connor," subby.

/ it'll be bahk.

Wanted for Questioning
2007-06-11 10:34:33 PM  
What, no Sarah Conners reference???
2007-06-11 10:50:12 PM  
Mister PeeJay:

Actually, only those Terminators that looked like Ahnuld were CSM-101. That designation meant what appearance of the Terminator had. So the T-1000 wasn't a CSM-101.

It's and infiltration unit: part-man, part-machine. Underneath is a hyper-alloy combat chassis. Microprocessor controlled. Fully armored. Very tough. But outside it's living human tissue.

/Come vit me if you want to live.

I laughed, mostly because T2 is playing on whatever the free movie channel is in this hotel.

/Wait, you mean there's pr0n on the pay movies?
2007-06-12 12:56:53 AM  
Great headline, Subby.
2007-06-12 01:26:45 AM  
I only came in here to make sure Dick Miller made an appearance.

It's not that you CAN'T send back inorganic matter back in time, it's just not a good idea because doing so winds up creating a tangent universe that runs out of energy and collapses into a black hole in about 28 days or so, taking the real universe with it.

Time is the same everywhere.
2007-06-12 12:08:04 PM  

Then how do you explain President Bush sending Cheney back in time to shoot JFK in the face, hmm? I call shenanigans.
2007-06-12 05:04:05 PM  
This thread had great potential for Terminator quotes and then LowbrowDeluxe made me throw up in my mouth, on my keyboard and the lady in the cube across from mine.

Well played.
2007-06-12 07:43:56 PM  
At least some of you had the nerd-guts to make Darkman references. For shame, subby. For shame.
2007-06-15 10:38:26 AM  
Hey, you can't do that.
