    So really...what's the difference between all the sombreros and the .NOT .DEAD thing 2 or 3 years ago?
    What I mean is the not dead thing made many people roll their eyes and complain about avatars others had, but this sombrero one is immune. :confused:

    Because the Sombrero thing is fun and the NOT.DEAD. is fandom being in denial about something that happened that they didn't like so they pretend it "didn't happen."

    Because the cool kids all wear sombreros. They used to take the .not.dead kids' lunch money, spank them and stuff them into lockers.

    The sombrero thing is cool. Not. Dead. was stupid and idiotic. Although, it did get quite amusing when people began coming up with parodies like Picard Not. Bald. Or an image of bread captioned Not. Bread.

    That's too bad.

    I'd love to see an avatar for 'Terminator: The Sombrero Connor Chronicles.'

    Yeah, I never had a problem with that one. It was amusing in a schadenfreude kind of way then it got genuinely funny. ;)

    Well, it happened in a holodeck program reconstructing events from two centuries in the future. The novel line has already shown how those events really played out, and it's a bit different. Not to mention more intriguing.

    In the novels, anyway (which are at least as likely to be contradicted as not).

    I don't read the novels.. Sombreros are fun and canon.

    Not. Dead. is kinda silly. Braga killed him off in TATV. It happened.

    I'm just saying, what happened was that a holodeck program showed him dying. Surely you can see why some people would be hesitant to accept this as firsthand evidence of reality. Maybe the events played out a bit differently and Section 31 altered the records.
