Wow. Earthlet art has come a long way since the bog-paper Nerve Centre days, hasn't it?

Hope you're on the mend  :wave:

insert wank joke here

How DARE you make a mockery of my injury? Tell you what, though, my left hand just doesn't have what it takes.

I have a passing recollection of writing / the printing press being objected to on the grounds that it was likely to have an impact on our ability to remember things.  I just can't quite put my finger on where I came across it though.

Sorry, what were we talking about?

I've heard that one too; about writing I'm pretty sure.  Probably Q.I. - most things I know come from there.

Terrifying. As a borderline hypochondriac, though, I've convinced myself I had cancer many, many times. This one, though, I was certain about.  I'll take the sore hand any day.

Happy birthday, lad.

YOINKS! The doctor tells me a lump in a certain place is not cancer.

BAH! I fall off my motorbike 3 hours later and end up spending the night in hospital.

(I'm just out.  Nothing broken apparently but I won't be using my right hand for a while.)

Ah, I see.  I misremembered it as a revenge mission. Thanks guys; really must get round to a re-watch.

According to the film lore, the Replicants were essentially indistinguishable from humans, bar a few tiny anomalies, and the ageing thing was a failsafe that could be removed. I don’t recall how the book positioned things.

Was that in the first film? It's been a while.  I would have thought that if that had been the case, the replicants' first priority would have been to find their maker and get the failsafe removed.  Or is that what they were doing? Like I said, it's been a while.

One for the 'things that went over your head' thread, but I recently realised how important the 'time to die' catchphrase was.  It wasn't just an Arnie-style tough-guy soundbite but the entire driving force in the mind of a rogue replicant. The only thing that spurred them on was the terrible knowledge of their impending time to die.

I'm still not entirely convinced that Blade Runner needed a sequel.  The world-building was interesting but the storyline wasn't half as thought-provoking and concise as the original. Also wasn't entirely happy to see Harrison Ford growing old; unless I've misremembered something that explains things, it kind of takes away from the question of his humanity or lack thereof.

Can't remember now if The Deep was in the comic.  He does seem very much like an Ennis character: A bit of a perv and a schadenfreude-heavy hard luck case.
The gills bit made me wince.

Not having read the comic, I'm now thinking of this (if you ever go to Hull, this is the best thing to do there*):

Other attractions being the museums and Spiders...

That looks proper cool.  I hope it's called the Hull Hull.

.... Then he says he wants to buy Greenland.

D'you think it's possible he got confused because so many UK politicians are falling over themselves to flog off bits of the UK to him?

Now I'm depressed.  I'm not even from the UK but I shudder to think of the indignities in store for you.

T-Rex grew bigger than previously thought…!

That Thoth and his time-travelling antics.  Still can't quite picture Satanus with feathers though.

Have you ever seen a Cassowary in person?! Pure Therapod blood, those things are scary how much like late Cretaceous none avid raptors they are.

I see what your mean.  You'd wonder how it is that Creationists manage to keep on lying to themselves.

Fanny baws.

If it wasn't for Middenface McNulty and Irvine Welsh, I wouldn't know what you're all on about half the time 😉

To be fair Nemesis Book X's main achievement was to cement Henry's reputation as being among the best the prog has ever had. He even outshone Kev O'Neill in that particular story.

Apart from that it was a fairly shoddy rehashing of past glories, something that Pat was doing in Sláine around the same time.

I remember some 2000ad collaboration with an Irish kids' show called Anything Goes, though I remember it more from a feature in a Sci-Fi special than the programme itself.

Said programme, by the way, was truly awful, as was painfully clear to any kid like me who was lucky enough to have 'the channels' (ie the British ones).
