3x Thursday

1) Even if you didn't know that Star Wars was inspired by The Hidden Fortress (which I didn't know until yesterday), do you see similarities between the Imperials and the Nazi? How so?/How not? What's your take on it?

Similarities between the Empire and the Nazis? Well, like the Nazis, the Empire had much spiffier outfits than the Rebels. But it's not unusual for fascist countries to really pay attention to their military wear. Other than that, no. In Star Wars the Empire really wasn't set out on the genocide of "undesirables", they just wanted to be in control of everything.

2) Money or Power? Why?

Money, because with great power comes great responsibility and I've got all the responsibility I can handle right now. Besides I'd probably be really cranky if I was powerful and, again, I'm cranky enough as it is.

3) The apocalypse is coming. You have to make a list of 10 things that will help you thru it. What would you take? Why?

Mike, Duncan and Cal--that's three. My Legion of Super-heroes comics, plenty of pencils and paper, a solar-powered generator, portable DVD player with lots of DVDs, books for all of us, Mike's guitars, CD player and all of our CDs. Okay, I cheated and technically that's more than ten.

Bonus Question for Comments: Remember when 4 megs of memory was a lot? What happened?

Programs got more powerful, code got fatter and speed, speed, speed was the goal.
