Time Travel is only done right as a parody, like in Futurama, because it's such bad writing it exists only to be mocked by good writers.
I am required to point out the requisite exception that proves the rule on this, which is of course Chrono Trigger, the best time travel story ever written IMO.
The best take on time travel (which I am not fan of in general) was in Babylon 5 - in big part because it was planned part of the story, thus reflecting the fact that if time travel would happen, the past results of future time travel would be already history and affecting the now from the beginning.

I admittedly haven't seen B5, though it's on the list of "things to get around to watching eventually", so I can't much comment on it.

Gods, sometimes just walking down the street reminds me of how happy I am not to have to interact with people.

I'm really not dressed particularly strangely today: White tennis shoes, Pacific Rim chefwear, black T-shirt, and black corporate vest. But as I passed the BART station an older woman started staring at me, so I smiled and nodded, and she scowled and said, "I can't tell whether that's a man or a woman!"
Then as I walked by she said again, "Seriously, I can't!"

She was obviously trying to get a rise out of me, and I thought it was just depressing: How can you go through life being so bitter and hostile towards your fellow humans? What would she have done if I'd taken offense and attacked her?

It was just a mindless, angry, unkind, stupid thing for her to do. And as I said, I was far sadder than madder at her behavior: What must it be like to live in such a bitter world?

Probably boxed you into whatever group she was wanting to put down that day, validated her stereotypes, and gotten to be the martyr every American seems to dream of being anymore.

A problem has been detected and BIOS.Sing.AH4.7 has been shut down to prevent damage to their core.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart the core computer. if this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. I this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for and BIOS updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart the core comptuer, select Advanced Simulation Options, and then select Safe Mode.

I don't follow such things closely, but I did hear rumblings of a return to activity for Newgrounds, and a declaration by them that all content was welcome.

And honestly I've always loved Newgrounds, I'd love to see them come back to some level of internet prominence again.

You know my BF really didn't approve of the thread about what the neural network says. He said that teaching an AI to become sentient will just end in tears.

Yes it will... For the AI. I almost pity it having to put up with humans.

We'll manage. They're only temporary anyway.

Errr....given what humans do with those emotions....I think this is how you start a robot uprising....so they can save us from ourselves....

Let's be honest, we need the saving.
