Mad_Radhu: dittybopper: duffblue: slayer199: Came for a Terminator 2 or 3 reference...leaving satisified.

In my eyes there are only two movies. The prequel to the greatest work of art ever to be put to celluloid, and Judgement Day.

T3 is good.  If you watch it through to the very end, where you learn that Judgement Day was inevitable.

Decent capstone for that particular trilogy, much like Alien3 is for that franchise.

Again, T:SCC handled that a lot better, and were heading towards what seemed like a better solution. You'd never be able to stop a Skynet-like AI from happening, so the only way to avoid Judgment Day was to supplant Skynet in history with a better AI that was taught morality and respect for life before it was let loose on the world, which is where I think they were going with John Henry. An AI being created in inevitable, but it turning evil is not.


I still hold out hope that we'll still get a proper resolution to that series. It ruined me. I seriously have absolutely no interest in a Terminator story that isn't a continuation of T:TSCC now. The new trilogy they're planning? Couldn't care less. I want to know what happens in a future that never heard of John Connor. I want to know what happened to John Henry/Cameron. What new role does Ellison have to play in all of this? Plus, more of her:

Wonder how the immune system would react to alloys like this? Nickel is toxic, right?

Self-repairing layered anti-personnel armor? Laminate really thin layers of this material stamped out in sheets through a process. Ballistic hits the layered sheet, causing stress fractures but doesn't break through. Unattended, the armor becomes stiff again. Laminate between each layer with ceramic powder so a pressing process doesn't molest the structure quality of the plates? I dunno. Seems like self-repairing body armor would be a money-maker.

Quantum Apostrophe: H31N0US: I really should have stayed in Engineering.

Why? So you can stay in school for the rest of your life (at your expense) while you scramble for the dwindling number of jobs left in the West with declining working conditions?


I make good money as a mechanical engineer. I lost my job in March of 2008, got another in October of 2008, I didn't like it though so I found another one by February 2009 and switched jobs.  I was able to negotiate my way into the same salary that I was making at Job #2 but with an extra week of vacation, and better medical benefits.  Since then I have received a raise ever year but one, moved up the ladder, received a rather large bonus for a successful project, and quarterly bonuses for productivity.

Yeah it's a nightmare out here.....
