The poll just hit 100 A+'s!

(I gave it an A)
i gave it an A as well but i still can't believe people gave it an F but those must have been the ten most die hard Trekkie fans.

"Die hard" has nothing to do with it. I'm a hardcore Trek fan, have been since I was 4 (I'm 33 now), and I gave it an "A+."

I wish they would die hard, yes.

JOKE!!!!! Seriously I see those names and a lot of them had already failed this movie before it came out.

Yep. I was going to mention the same thing. Many of them were predicting doom before the second trailer had came out. Some have probably not even seen the movie.

I need to unglue my brain from this forum. I seem to have gone insane hitting refresh and posting here. I'm in my Darkness bubble.

Yeah, I've spent several hundred posts here over the last few days. I may need to go do something else, too.



So, you doing anything later?

I see it more as screaming at a newborn baby because it ended up being a boy and not the girl you (general you) wanted.

Was that Praxis or are people just assuming it was? I saw the film a second time and heard no mention of it.

Well, that's one way to look at it.

I wonder if we could come up with an equally extreme metaphor for each voting block?

Are B- voters being callously indifferent to that same newborn child?

If I spend a few minutes, I could do that. Unfortunately, I'm lazy, so I'll just say grades "A+" to "C+" are satisfied, happy parents. The "C-" to "D-" are parents who are disappointed, but want to love their new baby, though there are many hurdles for them. The "F" parents have been screaming into the birth canal since inception.

You are a satisfied, happy parent. You may not be all gung-ho about some things, like that the baby's features do not match your own in any way, and that there's a man outside waving to the baby and your wife is waving back, but you are just glad to see it healthy.
