Milo Minderbinder: How did a Neil Armstrong thread turn into a Dr. Who debate? If there is a less justified reason for calling someone an asshole then their opinion on episodic tv, I have not seen it. Grow up, people.


You've been here for 7 years, you should know that threads very often are about the headline rather than the article.

They were not called an asshole for their opinion on episodic tv, they were called an asshole for being an asshole about their opinion on episodic tv.

"I don't like Doctor Who." "Doctor Who sucks and you're all stupid for liking it."
See the difference?

Dammit...preview is my friend.

"I don't like Doctor Who." <-- Expressing an opinion
"Doctor Who sucks and you're all stupid for liking it." <-- Being an asshole

See the difference?

I'm not sure why, but whenever I read that headline, I feel like I just bludgeoned a large humanoid to death with a mop handle.

No one called anyone an asshole over their opinion on episodic TV. Someone got called an asshole because they were acting all assholy.

Reading comprehension: the other white meat.

/funny headline. Props to subby.

So what happens to all the Silence's bodies? Do people dispose of the bodies when they see them lying around everywhere and then forget that they disposed of them? Do they still hold their memory-erasing properties as they decay?

irving47: Oh goody. I get to explain it.
Doctor Who...
The race is referred to as the Silents or Silence...
You can't remember anything about them the moment you look away from them, but whatever they say when you do, is interpreted by your brain as a post-hypnotic suggestion. Unaware, one slipped up and said you should kill us all on sight to someone making a video recording of it. To rid the planet of them, The Doctor inserts the video into the live feed of the moon landing. It is absolutely freaking brilliant.

Because Plantronics headsets have ALWAYS SUCKED.

Have you seen the ad where the astronaut gets yanked back by the cable? And then they go on to say how great the transmission was because of Plantronics?

cache.gizmodo.com

But they conveniently cut off the transmission when he gets pulled back by the cable, hence not reminding the audience what the actual transmission was, which was A BUNCH OF farkING UNINTELLIGABLE NOISE!!!

Hey, Plantronics, why don't you sufdhdgsojdxxxshshsh my didifffieeshshsskkkssgg

It's so ironic that they make a commercial about how their headsets aided transmission, and in the very same farking commercial they had to hide how shiatty they are. The only thing I can think of like it was when Hillary said (sniper fire) "I don't think I was serving tea", when it turned out that in reality, far from sniper fire and tea serving, she was being read poetry by an 8 year old girl.

Congratulations, Plantronics. You are the Hillary Clinton of headsets.

Seriously, shut the f*ck up and find a thread where they're talking about a show you like.

Who fans may be "sci-fi hipsters," but people who show up in threads just to insult everyone else's taste are just plain assholes.

Asshole.

I agree. There's a whole mentality that exists where people get infuriated when people like things that they don't, and conversely they are also infuriated when things they like are loved by everyone. I think it has always existed, and has become much more pronounced now that the internet provides such instant feedback.

I hope someone is doing a study on this to understand it better. It's like people feel their whole sense of self is invalidated if everyone else's opinions and taste doesn't align with them. It's absurd, but it's obvious that this issue is widespread.

So many Doctor Who villains have never stood up to scrutiny beyond the episodes they appear. They're walking plot devices. They all have that "how do Daleks walk up stairs? *" issue that comes up once you think about them too long.

Actually, you are correct both ways. It's amazing how people will turn on something they love when it becomes "too popular."

Because the moon landing was a prominent part of a Doctor Who episode.

If there is a less justified reason for calling someone an asshole then their opinion on episodic tv,

Because the person saying "I don't like 'X'" is probably a troll? *shrugs*

I have not seen it. Grow up, people.

And yet you probably see a show you like but I don't...yet I won't judge you.

One thing always bothered me about that episode.. Wouldn't there have been a period of time where the planet would have been littered with the rotting corpses of dead aliens?.. Or are we supposed to believe that we'd forget the smell just as quickly?

Perhaps there was a sudden rush on vics vaporub around that time...


/yes, i know it's fiction

FINALLY watched the 4 specials~!

"The Next Doctor" = Fun.
"Planet of the Dead" = Fun.
"The Waters of Mars" = Morose and the Doctor acting very immature.
"The End of Time" = Like watching a comic book story that can be done in 1-2 issues being decompressed into 5-6 issues. That story could've been done in one episode, or at least done much more cleaner than what it was.

I was going to make a joke about the bodies being burned in the Cuyahoga, but unfortunately for my sense of humor, that happened a month before the moon landing.

I like Doctor Who as much as the next guy, but it's still amusing to me when some people are so easily trolled just because someone makes a statement in an Internet forum.

I've tried watching the show through the years and different guys playing the character
people get so excited about it, and say how much fun it is
so, I keep trying

just awful
I would rather watch glee

How Alien life might greet a human...

"Morning sir, or madam, or neuter," the thing said. "This your planet, is it?"
"Well, er. I suppose so," Newt said.
"Had it long, have we sir?"
"Not personally. I mean, as a species, about half a million years. I think."
The alien exchanged glances with its colleague.
"Been letting the old acid rain build up, haven't we sir," it said. "Been letting ourselves go a bit with the old hydrocarbons, perhaps?"
"I'm sorry?"
"Well, I'm sorry to have to tell you, sir, but your polar ice caps are below regulation size for a planet of this category, sir."
"Oh, dear," said Newt.
"We'll overlook it on this occasion, sir."
The smaller alien walked past the car. "CO2 level up nought point five percent," it rasped, giving him a meaningful look. "You do know you could find yourself charged with being a dominant species while under the influence of impulse-driven consumerism, don't you?"

What, no mention of how Emo Doctor 10 made you long for his death and the sweet, sweet appearance of Matt Smith?

/Tennant had a great run that was damaged by his last three episodes. Smith... well, his run is just beginning now.

Just to throw an answer out there, I'd say they decompose where they died. Ever had a dead animal smell in your house that you just can't find? Maybe it's because every time you find it and then look away you forgot about it. Not a perfect answer, but still an answer.

I always thought the Silence evacuated ASAP (leaving the number of dead far lower than the number originally on Earth) and/or returned for the bodies. I haven't watched every Silence episode, but going back for their own dead doesn't seem too far fetched.

Oh, and subby? Fantastic.

Whatsamatter, BI, you jealous of someone who has gone beyond and can't speak for himself here on Earth anymore?

Departed or no, Neil does not require a f*ckup like me to defend him, his deeds speak for themselves.
ALL OF THEM, not only the One Small Step for which you seem to so hate him.

But the f*ckup will speak and dare you to deny the truth.

One small step. The single deed in modern times through which the entire human race was ennobled.

Even you.

And far be it from me, the f*ckup, to deprive you of the right to fill the air with your laughable flailing for attention.

You alleged "journo" AW brats at Bullshiat Investors will be unhappily forgotten within a couple years IF THAT
while ten thousand years down the halls of history the name of Neil Armstrong will still shine
bright and wholly untarnished.

My question to the wife the first time we watched that episode was:

Towards the end, when the secret service agent was drawing his weapon to shoot the Silence standing in the hallway, wouldn't all of those people sitting on the couch (who were not in a position to see the Silence and thus be affected by the memory loss) wonder WTF he was doing shooting inside the White House?
