Then I bring terrible news :(

Picard is finished :( Stewart is leaving startrek :(

Here's an email my dad sent me:


Patrick Stewart (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Stewart,+Patrick) said Tuesday that whether or not Paramount decides to produce another Star Trek movie, he will not return as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Speaking to reporters at the London premiere of Star Trek: Nemesis (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0253754) Tuesday night, Stewart said, "You never want to outstay your welcome. Just like an athlete, it's horrible to go on when the best is over."

Although the Nemesis episode opened to mixed reviews, Stewart maintained that it was the best Star Trek movie he had ever done. "I could think of no better way to bow out," he said.


:( Data's gone, Worf, Riker, Troy, Wesley, Guinan... and now Picard...

Doesn't leave much room for another TNG movie now does it? :(

Sir Henry Morgan

:confused:

Odd. It worked on me :(

I guess that settles the "is there gonna be another TNG movie" question :/

Ofcourse, Picard can happen to be on a archeological dig on Risa while Worf is vacationing on there, Riker and Troy happen to be in the sector and .. em.. Crusher is tutoring the new chief medical officer on Riker's ship and Geordi is.. em.. On Risa having real eyes surgically "installed" (like in the early TNG episodes, Crusher suggest this procedure and Geordi refuses).

Yah. That can work :)

(PS: This "picard leaving" isnt fiction, its.. apparently.. fact (or at the very least, highly possible rumor) ).

Kirk is dead. He died in Generations. (twice too :) )


There was an explosion on the Enterprise-B (the 3rd Enterprise... err.. 4th (technically...) while trying to get the deflector to do something to get the ship out of the rift. The hull ruptured and there was a hole in the hull for about 10 seconds until the forcefield went up (so he got sucked into space.. presumably)

He then makes an appearence later in the movie by helping Picard stop a (whatever the race Guinan belongs to) doctor.

Kirk got to the remote control to decloak the platform then the catwalk fell.

(There was the TOS- Enterpise, the Enterprise-A (i believe its given in the 5th or 6th TOS movie...). Then we had the Enterprise-D (TNG) and Enterprise-E (FirstContact). So, presumably, there was an Enterpise B & C.

The Star Trek: Enterprise (the begining of our journey, which takes place before TOS). The ship (NX-01) is also named Enterprise.

So we got Enterprise (ENT), Enterprise (TOS), A, B, C, D & E.

The Patrick Stewart thing would probably bother me a bit more if I thought the chances were good that the rest of the NG cast was going to try to appear in another film. Then it would seem all too weird that the Captain wasn't there. But, considering that it doesn't sound much like there will be further films focusing on the NG cast, I didn't really think much about Patrick Stewart thing.

And I thought the way they killed off Kirk in Generations was incredible cheese! I mean, I figured it would happen sooner or later, but that seemed like such a hohum way to kill off the Captain of the original ST series. Then again, I didn't really care for Generations. A little too much jarring camera work and far too many explosions. :o

As it stands, First Contact is still my favorite ST film (Voyage Home coming in a very close second). People I know who vehemently hate everything about Star Trek liked First Contact. It was a darn good show. :D

I see you set ur phaser to kill :) (the melting smilie)

Did u get a chance to see Nemesis yet?

Its full of action. The argo rocks (yes, ill keep on saying it :p )

True about Picard leaving aint that much of a prob if theres not gonna be any more TNG movies. I think the only people left (on the Enterprise-E) that were/are in TNG is Beverly and Geordi.

Spoiler for the Nemesis movie and other stuff

Right? Tasha died a long time ago. (i think she died in the.. 2nd season? ) Data died in Nemesis. Riker and Troy (married) are on a new ship (Riker finally took a command of his own...) Wesley is... He has to be out of the academy by now... He got a field promotion (after "saving" Riker, Troy and Loxana from the Ferengi who is in love with Loxana and want to use her powers in negotiations). Guinan left the enterprise after Generations (but made it in Nemesis, for the wedding). Lore was dismantled.

I think that covers it? :confused:

I do not see captain Picard leaving entirely, he will probably have a hand in the next one. However I do hope the next movie will include some of the cast from all the series; even Enterprise. Remember Spock Died in one movie and then reappeared in the next; so anything is possible.
The only title you may not see in the future is "Star Trek - Geriatrics"....... what am I saying... :eek:

mrdefender
22nd Dec 2002, 21:10
I doubt that there's gonna be actors from the Enterprise series if the do make a generational movies (i.e TNG, DS9, VOY).

Enterprise isnt even finished it's second season :)

But there are many "movies" for star trek, when u consider 2 episodes is movie long :)

If a movie is 2 hrs, then thats 2 episodes of Star Trek. Kinda makes ya wonder how they can make a movie.... :/ :D

Rook
24th Dec 2002, 08:08
I'm just wondering what the next (if any) Trek film would be about--especially if it combined the casts from multiple series...?

mrdefender
24th Dec 2002, 20:40
Dunno.

I'd imagine a new threat would come to the Alpha Quadrant.

It wouldnt (or dobutfully) be the Dominion, they signed a peace treaty with the Federation.

I wonder how they're gonna make a voyager movie (if any). Janeway's an Admiral now. (as seen in Nemesis).

But in the TNG episode of "All good things..." (series finale). Admiral Riker had his own ship (the 1701-D).

Rook

But aren't treaties made to be broken? There's the next movie right there!! ;) :D

mrdefender
25th Dec 2002, 06:48
Well, no..

If Treaties where meant to be broken, we'd be at war with everyone right now :)

oh wait.. that would be a :(

I just hope its not gonna be a exploration movie (i.e no action..). I never saw an exploration movie...

I dont mind them as TV shows, but a movie.. I think people expect action in movies. (or comedy, or horror, or something..)

Exploration would be (imho) boring as a movie.

Doesnt leave much room for older bad guys returning.

Peace treaty signed with the Dominion, Janeway made peace with the Delta Quadrant bad guys (not to mention the fact that they're 70k+ light years away...).

I guess It will follow the other movies and introduce a new villan. There was Guinan's race (Generations), The borg (First Contact), Sona (Insurrection) and the Remans (Nemesis; Romulan Moon "Reman")

But I hope its a Voyager movie!! It would be a shame for them to have fought so hard only to do nothing when they finally get home. :(

I actually had tears at the series finale. I was so happy that they made it home. There was alot of rumours going around that they wouldnt have made it home.

Rook
25th Dec 2002, 09:38
Well history is rife with examples of treaties being broken. I'd say, if anyone was gonna do it in the Trek case, it would be the Dominion side that would break it. But making that scenario into an interesting movie would be quite a feat indeed. ;)

mrdefender
26th Dec 2002, 04:27
Rife?

Yes, it would be hard to make the Dominion in a movie..

I'm hoping for a new villan. And something that doesnt pose a threat to the federation. (well, .. not only the federation).

Generations had the wierd doctor destroying federation planets to get back into the "rift"

First Contact had the borg going back in time to stop First Contact (which would stop the "federation" from taking place")

Insurrection had the Sona with subspace weapons. (but the threat was more to the planet.. )

Nemesis has the Remans going to radiate Earth..

I'm hoping for a "Omega"-scale plot.

Rook
26th Dec 2002, 08:41
Rife: In widespread existence, practice, or use; increasingly prevalent. Abundant or numerous. :)

It just seems like a lot of whatever could be done with the Star Trek franchise has already been done, and further films would just be covering old topics without putting an original twist on them. I'm sure someone could think of a radically original, fantastic story, and write a masterful script. But people with original ideas and masterful scripts aren't usually the ones who get the job. ;) :D

mrdefender
27th Dec 2002, 01:02
In other words, Nemesis :)

The Director of the Nemesis movie wasn't a fan of Star Trek nor did he participate with Star Trek in any way (i.e writer, actor, person who brings coffee to Rick Berman :) )

I'm guessing that could be done again.

The story was written by a fan :)

By a fan, for the fans :)

Rook
27th Dec 2002, 07:30
True.

I'd just hate to see them continue making films if they're going to end up being copies of eachothers' scenarios--especially if they make a film that goes to the trouble of gathering cast members from all of the past Trek shows.

But that's just me... :)

mrdefender
27th Dec 2002, 17:18
True. At one point it would be boring. But think of it this way, It's another crew facing the problem, not Picard. So the movie would be very different (as in the other crew would react very differently from TNG).

Look at Janeway. She negotiated passage thru Borg space with the Borg.

Picard would never have done that. Especially after his Locutus thing

Rook
27th Dec 2002, 21:22
Well, I don't know how much the prospect of a Janeway-lead film would thrill me. It would have to be an exceptional storyline, coz Voyager was about my least favorite Trek Series... :o

mrdefender
27th Dec 2002, 23:11
Really? Wow. I found it amazing on how hard they fought to get back home. They were all alone. :(

:)

Rook
27th Dec 2002, 23:48
Well, part of it might have to do with the fact that they took it off of regular television after the first couple of seasons, so I never really got to see the later seasons. But, based solely on what I saw in the first season or two, I like the other Treks better. Oh well... :)

mrdefender
28th Dec 2002, 02:52
Wow. I liked every part of the series.

Well.. I found some episodes to be too wierd.. some very confusing.. (Like the "Year Of Hell" 2part episode).

There was alot more time travel in Voyager, which is enough to give the guys at Nasa a headache :)

Rook
28th Dec 2002, 03:42
Maybe I'd just have to go back and watch the later seasons, since they do run them on late night tv now. I usually end up getting home from work too late to watch them, though. Or if I do catch one in time, it's almost always one from the two seasons I did see. Just my luck...:o :D

mrdefender
4th Jan 2003, 00:51
There's this new technology, very high tech. I'm not sure if you heard of it... It's called a VCR. :D :D :D

Heh. Very state of the art. Especially the counter that keeps flashing 12:00 ;)

hehehe

I know how hard it is to use a VCR (well. not "hard" as in difficult, more like alot of work.. )

Especially if your computer doesnt have a reset button and you need to turn the power bar off (the switch thingy). All your data on your VCR disapears faster than Picard can say "Thats enough Data" :)


Ooh! Did you see the episode where Data is looking up something (early seasons of TNG). He's talking to himself and the computer goes "Please repeat command" (or to that effect...) and Data explains to the computer what he was doing :)

The computer said.. you guessed it.. "Thank you sir, I comprehend" :D

I laughed so hard I almost jumped into warp :)

I wonder how many retakes they had to do when/if Brent Spiner (data) sayed a contraction :/

Rook
5th Jan 2003, 04:25
I'm sensing some sarcasm here...:p

I'm just unmotivated when it comes to setting the VCR anymore. I even stopped taping Smallville. And, if you mean buying the Voyager episodes on tape, I have yet to see them anywhere...

That NG episode doesn't sound familiar. I really need to get back into my Next Gen Treks.:)

5th Jan 2003, 05:09
The series is out on DVD now. my cousin got 1-6 for xmas (7 came out at the end of last year.. Remember now.. we're in 2003 :D ) Looks huge.

The episode in question has to be in the first 2-3 seasons. It looks "old" (Riker had no beard yet, I believe..)

I'm not sure what else was in the episode.. :(

Anyways.. I'm always @ home so I don't bother with the VCR either :) (unless I'm gonna stay at the hospital for a while... )

Rook
5th Jan 2003, 07:55
Well, I finally started up a Next Generation video collection, but it's gonna take me more than a little while to acquire the whole series. And, of course, my dad has quite a few of the original Treks. :)

mrdefender
5th Jan 2003, 08:17
:)

There are only 3 seasons of TOS.

The last TOS episode is called "Turnabout Intruder"

Its the one where a girl uses some alien thing to switch bodies with Kirk and she takes over the Enterprise.

Wasnt fond of the TOS much.. Prefered the newer ones (TNG+). Kirk was just odd with his "pause acting".

Not to mention how hard it was for him to keep his shirt on or in one piece... :eek:

Rook
6th Jan 2003, 02:34
All in all, I wasn't a big fan of the original Trek either. There are a few good episodes here and there, but I'm much more of a Next Gen kid. At least Picard could keep his shirt on. Good thing, too...:eek:

:D

mrdefender
6th Jan 2003, 05:08
Picard was a good explorer. He liked archeology. (eugh. we need a spell check badly.. well.. I need a spell checker badly :D ).

It gave more a sense of exploration than the original star trek (weird how the star trek is about exploration and there are more fights than science in the TOS series :confused: :eek: ).

Q gave TNG what it needed to go from awesome to warptastic!


(em.. imho :D )

Rook
6th Jan 2003, 08:24
Q was cool, especially when he became human.:D

There did seem to be a bit more fight to the original series, but perhaps that was because they didn't have all the "science" they had invented by the time of the Next Generation. If the later shows excelled at anything, it was at coming up with impossibly complicated, and of course, very scientific-sounding, terminology for everything. And there was always an alternative means that absolutely no one in the history of space travel had ever thought of for getting out of every dangerous situation.

"I might be able to construct a [place big scientific-sounding term here] that can [even bigger scientific-sounding term here] the [smaller but no less scientific-sounding term] to create a [another big word], thus allowing time travel.":D

:confused:

mrdefender
7th Jan 2003, 04:08
Yes. But he's also a character in TNG, DS9 and VOY. (well.. there's a race called the q-continuem) Every q-continuem individual has the same name (Q). But the Q Rook and I are refering to is played by John De Lancie (http://us.imdb.com/Name?de%20Lancie,%20John).

TNG gave the impression that Q (John) would be a regular. He apeared in the pilot episode (Encounter At Farpoint (Parts 1 & 2) (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0094030)).

Rook
7th Jan 2003, 09:48
Whoa. I'd forgotten about the James Bond Q guy. Where have I been? :o

I liked Q's character (the Trek one) better in the later episodes, though the first episode will always be a big favorite (coz at the time it was, well, HUGE!:D).

I don't recall him appearing on DS9, though...? :o

Did you know the Q (the guy who died in car crash) was from the original Bond movies too :)

I have the GoldenEye and Tomorow Never Dies DVD and on the TND dvd, there's a bond feature about the "life of bond".

You saw early q getting older thruout the other movies.

The new Q isn't as 'cool' as the old one. The old Q was awesome and had as many puns as Bond :)

Q stands for QuarterMaster (if you wanted to know). Its the guy who handles weapons and equipment (in Bond, its mostly gadgets..)

Dunno what M stands for.. I was thinking Monney Penny but that's M's secretary. :)

John Cleese is more of a comedian. and not he's not playing a comedian (well. not @ 100% like other movies).

Its like Robin Williams in Insomnia or 1 hour photo (he works at walmart in the photo section). But look at all the comedy movies he did.

When I first saw Insomnia, I had a very hard time picturing Williams as being a bad guy... :/

Sir Henry Morgan
8th Jan 2003, 22:44

mrdefender
9th Jan 2003, 01:25
Which one is that? He did lots of 'voices' in Mrs DoubtFire alone. (movie is Mrs Doubtfire.. so by 'alone' i mean only..).

That movie he gets divorced and plays a babysitter (old lady) to he can spend time with his kids. Its a good movie :)

I think Williams is a good actor, but some movies I didn't care much for them.

I liked Mrs Doubtfire and the one where he's like 'Dr. Funny' (a doctor who works more for cheering people up while providing health care. mostly to cancer/incurable-dieseased kids..).. ie.. People who really need to be cheered up.

He makes a good Genie too :) (Aladin 1&2)

I think I'll have to agree with you there. I don't like him either. I think just about the only film I like that he is in is Hook (and maybe Good Will Hunting). I don't care for his stand-up routine, and he's always "on," anyway. I mean the guy never sits down in an interview and just has a conversation. He's all over the place.

Mrdefender he was in a TV show called Mork and Mindy where he was an alien and did stupid voices all the time.

Rook
10th Jan 2003, 05:33
Whoa! I almost forgot, I did like The Dead Poets Society pretty well, too. I'll have to admit, he's a halfway decent actor if he's put in the proper role, usually a drama of some sort. He played a psychiatrist in Good Will Hunting, and did a fairly good job there, too. I just can't stand to watch him in comedy films, or stand-up routines, and, dear God, certainly not in interviews! He just makes my skin crawl... :o

He's done quite a few more films than I thought he had... CLICK THE LINK THINGY! (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Williams,+Robin)

That aint hard to believe. :) I got a tear in my eye then :)

But seriously.. when was the last time you saw a movie where the star was 'acting' as a cancer patient?

The closest movie I saw was the other sister and I am sam who had mental patients. The other sister returned from a school (one of those 'special' schools. I forget the proper term..) goes to public school and falls in love with another mentally-chalenged person and want to get maried, but her mother doesn't approve.

I am sam I believe is a mental-troubled person who has a son and the courts try to take his son away (probably for an obviously rediculous of being a unfit parent...)

Like comeone. We got more less-fited parents who can keep their kids! Take a look at michael jackson. (was a recent-enough thing on tv about holding his new born over the balcony in 'excitement')

What kind of parent holds his kids on the other side of a balcony (the side where there's a ground... waaaaay down there..)???

that would be my reaction :) (the :eek: :eek: ) might also start crying (being scared.. almost anything can make a baby cry..)

He has 3 kids? doesn't he? (well.. has.. had.. depending on what happens with the child support/whatever the organisation is that takes kids away from unfit parents..)

I think child support is what people pay when they're divorced and their ex has their kid..

ARGH! It's at the tip of my tongue!!!!

Well. Let's see now :)

Alrighty. We were talking about this minky thing, You guys (Henry and yourself) said it was before the 80's (or very near my birth year).

Talked about how hard it is for me to remember anything before 1999, I talk about my graduation.. Henry said something about making it a movie. I then 'debated'/'argued' that I never heard of such a movie.. But heard of mentally illed patients. such as I am sam and The Other Sister.

I then went into details about the 'I am sam' movie. A mental patient who is considered an unfit parent and has a chance of loosing his son. I then argued that worse parents are allowed to keep their kids. Pointed out Michael Jackson and the balcony incident with his 3rd (?) child.

(I do/did not wish to insult anyone with the use of the 'mental' term.. i just didnt know how to explain it without the use of this term.. Its like trying to explain a movie about a blind man without using the word blind.. :/ )

as Capt. Janeway once said. 'Wierd is part of the job' :)

(the first seasons had an episode where there were 2 voyagers occupying the same place at the same time.. one got severly damaged, they lost kim and naiomi (being born at the time..) so the intact voyager janeway sends kim and baby naiomi to the damaged one and kim feels out of place.. or 'wierd')

Ok. Now think about winning the lottery and what you would do with it. :)

I would definitley get a house somewhere in orleans (im in downtown now.. too noisy.., orleans is more quiet). I would also, for sure, go to Star Trek: The Experience (Las Vegas). I'd probobly stay there for a long time (no need to worry about clothes or food, I did win the lottery you know :rolleyes: I can buy clothes and food). I might even try the Gah-k .. If im feeling brave :)

I bet my dad would try the Rocktajeno. Bajoran Hasperat sound good (looks like spicy meat in a pita/flat bread).

Obviously, I'd go on every ride/attraction they have. (there's one where your in a shuttle craft on an exploration mission).

ARGH! I would just have too much to do!! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to stay longer. What a shame... :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I'd probably get a mansion and have some of those hidden rooms behind the library thingys :)

Or a batcave-type hideout :)

I'd definitley get a new computer (even though this one is just 9 months old....). Would get alot (3-4) for the family (my dad, sis, her bf, the 3 cats, etc... ;) )

I'd have to get a credit card.. alot of stuff now can only be bought online.. (like a computer from Dell.com).

You can never have to many computers (well.. I guess it could happen if they're really out-dated and lying at the back of the basement...).

I'd get top of the line for today (god knows, tomorow it will be obsolete.... :mad: ).

Tecnology is taking a scary turn.. You see these techno movies... always has something going wrong.. Like the Matrix. We Invented AI and it took over the planet.. :/

We Invented a earthquake maker, it drained the earth's core..

Science just scares me some times.. We can actually clone people now... Isn't that considered playing god? :/ (Though, having a scientific mind, I can see the advantages..)

LOL I want my own personal Batcave! And a house with secret nooks and crannies and passages like the one on Clue would be cool.:D And the flashiest computer money can buy with aaaall the extras. I guess, if you win enough in a lottery, you can afford to replace your computer every time it becomes obsolete. That would mean a new computer every week, at least... :o :)

20th Jan 2003, 20:36
I know, its rediculous. Well I wouldnt really say a week. I only get info on a new type of hardware about twice a month..

It would be fun to have that type of house. Suffice it to say, You could have a party and there will be plenty of room for overnight guests :) (like people who drink too much..).

Hey. This reminds me.. You know the law that says you cant drink and drive.. Here, if the person attended a party, its the host thats responsible for keeping him/her from getting in his/her car.

Is it the same in the US? Or is only the driver who's responsible. (though the host would get a fine, the driver would also get a fine.. its not like they're gonna leave him off the hook for drinking and driving..)

Which batcave did you prefer? I found the 60's Batcave was awesome.. but wierd.. Very small for it to be located beneath a mansion (mansions are huge). The Pole access was neat.. :) I wish we could've seen where the elevator was.. (Alfred always took the elevator.. but we never saw where it was hidden...)

The Batman Returns batcave was nice. The way he entered his cave. Thru the cirgauphigus (?? The Mummy equavalent of a coffin..).

As for the cave itself, I'd have to say Batman Forever and Batman & Robin would be the best cave. The entrance was just not very 'super hero' like. There was a revolving wine case. That's it. Well, they locked the door of the room with the wine case.. But anyone can pick a lock, push all the wine cases... :/

I honestly have no idea... I think it's just the driver's responsibility. I could very well be wrong about that.

And I don't honestly remember any of the Batcaves other than the one from the first Batman film. I'd still like to have my very own Batcave, though. I'll design the whole thing from scratch.:D

Return of the Joker? Or the 60's Batman movie? (there was a black and white batman movie collection even before then. It had the guy in the green hornet.. kato?).

Return of the Joker is Michael Keaton's first Batman movie (featured Jack Nickleson.. (i know.. i got it wrong...) As the Joker.)

The 60's Batman movie actually featured every 'major' vilan (Riddler, Joker, Penguin and Catwoman.. the white one.. (there were 3 catwomans, two of the actors were black, the third was white.. I'm afraid I can't recall their names..). It was an ok movie. You got to see every vehicle (Bat- cycle, mobile, copter, boat).

I liked how they would get into the Bat-copter. They would use the BatCycle (motorcycle) and 'race' towards the copter, then batman would press a button, releasing Robin's 'cart' which headed to the passenger's door for the copter :)

That was soo cool!!!

Kinda reminds me of the Thunderbirds (now there's something I havent seen in ages!!). You know? International Resuce? :) All they had to do was get on their secret entrance and they would be carried to their seat. :eek: TOO COOL!!!

Though you could see the pupet's wires... (im afraid computers were bascily the size of a living room...). The concept is still cool.

I wonder how they could get a space station in orbit around the earth but no one knew about it?

You'd think if something were to be launched into space, someone would notice it...

I'd have to say Thunderbird 2 would be my favorite (the big green thing with all those compartments with different gadgets..) It's a shame we didnt see Thunderbird 4 more :( (the sub).

I meant the first Batman movie with Michael Keaton. I haven't really watched it in awhile, though. I can't remember what his particular cave was like--except that he did have bats in it! I have seen the old TV show, but it's been years, so I don't remember much of it, except...

>>BIF!!<<

>>BAM!!<<

>>POW!!<<

21st Jan 2003, 20:18
Oh, I remember alot more that the sfx word things. (pif, bam, poof, zap, gasp..).

Not much is none about the michael batcave.. All I can see is that he has a wall (rock) covering the entrance for the batmobile.. Alot of natural bridges (narrow rock formations).. A few keyboards and alot of monitors.

Oh. And one of those submarine doors/safes that has his suit in it (the batman suit..). :/

Not very super hero... You'd think he could afford more ;)

Same goes for the Batman returns cave.. All you really saw was another desk with one of those newspaper computers (same as the one used in the first keaton movie, when the girl looks at what happend at the spot she saw bruce put roses.. (the place where his parents were murdered..)).

You saw alot more of the batcave in Forever, and Batman & Robin.

The suits and gadgets were in a roundish (i think its em.. ? octagone? same as a stop sign.. ) room. There was a huge computer (like in the animated series). with alfred's brain ingrams. (technically, alfred's brain was in there... but not the actual brain.. (that was in his head.. ;) ).

The only thing odd about the batman movies.. Batman changed 3 times (Keaton, Kilmer and Clooney..). But Robin (Odonell) stayed the same person for 2 of the movies..

Alfred stayed the same actor for all 4 movies... Now there's a dedicated butler :)

On another note, we're gonna have a law here where if ANYONE has ANY ammount of alchool in his/her body.. you get a fine!!!

Now, Im not one who drinks alchool (all I ever had was a drop of wine and I spit it out), but whatever happend to being a Designated Driver???

if your a/the Designated Driver, its easy to assume that someone in the car has some alchool... right??

And how can you be sure if you have any alchool left (well.. unless you didnt drink..) in your body?? The breathaliser thing must cost alot of money...

The commercial says it will be a bit more complicated but will be worth it.. I just hope they would allow the designated driver thing..

And what about people who are somewhat drunk and get a taxi?? or subway?? or one of those train on the street thing? (cable wire train?).. I'm sure there's gonna be alot of contreversy about this new law..

I CAN see the advantages (no chance of drinking and driving).. but come on.. Absolutley no alchool in your blood??? I think you can have an ammount of alchool if you just snif wine (by snif.. i mean smell, or take a 'wiff'.. and not 'snif' in the drug way...).

He spent all his money on that big freakin' house. So, when it came to being a superhero, he just plain ran out of dough... :o ;) :D

He did have rather a humble Batcave. But, considering the personality he was given in the film, it fit him pretty well anyway.

And, as for the alcohol in your system thing, how much trouble will you be in if they use a breathalyzer on you when you accidentally swallow your mouthwash that day?

Nah, Bruce Wayne's house belonged to his parents (or grandparents.. im not sure how far the wayne foundation goes..) and when his parents died, it was left to him and alfred. (im guessing it was left to alfred until bruce was old enough to actually own a house). :)

So far, any alchool amount will be, at the very least, 200$ and points removed. (on ur license).

If you're intoxicated (drunk), you get a larger fine, jail time (i guess a day or two) and some points removed (more than above).

Hmm.. I guess .. well.. If the machine costs 200$ ... then 1 alchool level (dunno how it works) would pay for it.. :)

But still.. There's a reason for a Designated Driver, Taxi, etc.. Those are the smart people..

I've never even heard of anything like that. I thought, once you got an F, that was pretty much as bad as it could get. The teacher was a loony, though. I got fantastic grades on just about everything in that class, and she failed me coz I didn't get the floor plan for my "dream house" done in time to grade. That was it!:rolleyes:

I had a friend in the very same class who didn't do any of the assignments, and only got an F. I still can't figure out how I ended up outdoing that!:o

Cost me 20$ too! And what da ya know!! Its Horizontal (<=>) and the dates are small. You've gotta be very close to it.. But my desk (its an L where its fliped upwards wich would look like |- and im sitting at the -- part and the | part blocks me from getting closer..).
