@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 06:26 PM)

guessing "Hunchback" just got bumped WAY down the list for Disney's live-action remakes...

@  Patch : (15 April 2019 - 05:56 PM)

We all pronounce it wrong, so no one knows enough to care.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It'd be odd for most Americans not to know how to pronounce Notre Dame, considering they have a University with the same name that's the subject of a relatively popular film based around a sport most Americans love

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Three or four more hours will be needed to contain the fire.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Update from France 24: the Paris Fire Brigade says two towers and the main structure of the cathedral have been saved from complete destruction.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:57 PM)

One does not have to speak French to know that rhyming with "voter name" is off the mark.

@  Locoman : (15 April 2019 - 03:51 PM)

Really? It's an international tragedy and you're zeroing in on the people who maybe don't speak French?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:44 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw I just read on BBC News that the cause is not yet clear, but officials suspect the fire could be linked to renovation work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Oh boy, here we go with the U.S.-American newscasters who can't pronounce "Notre Dame" correctly.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 April 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Too soon to say.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 April 2019 - 03:20 PM)

Do we know if it was an attack? Arson? Or just bad wiring?

@  Nevermore : (15 April 2019 - 02:10 PM)

Religion is dead?

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 02:01 PM)

major cathedral burning down on Holy Week is some kind of metaphor.

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Hard to believe a wonder of the world could just be wiped out so easily. Hopefully they can still save it

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Well, Notre Dame is burning down

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 10:05 AM)

yikes I thought the site was going to be down for a while

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:07 PM)

So, time for another strike. No sleep for me tonight. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:04 PM)

Think Game of Thrones "light" meets Cabaret and you get the idea.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:03 PM)

Kinda sorta, just with more intrigue, conspiracy, depravity, crime and violence.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 April 2019 - 06:37 PM)

So it's like a prequel to Cabaret?

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 04:02 PM)

And man, characters are smoking literally EVERYWHERE.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:27 PM)

Also, full frontal male nudity. (There's been quite a bit of female nudity since episode 1.)

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Episode 6, and Hitler is randomly name-checked.

I would love to have a DS9 film, but the series kind of tied itself up rather nicely. I guess you could have Sisko return but that is about it. Besides, it is far too late for any of those characters to return for their own series. It would be neat though if we could get several of them in a film with some of the TNG and Voyager cast with some new characters.  Maybe we will get something like that for the Picard series.

Something deep down tells me the Enterprise D will still be around in his new series.

Cant decide if removing the TNG films from canon is good or bad.

Good. No hesitation, Good.

 

I love TNG as a show, but my movie collection goes Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and then Star Trek 2009. The TNG garbage is exactly that - garbage. The best one of the batch only gets worse with age and the most glowing recommendation about it is "It feels like a two part episode". From early season 3.

Because I think INS is definitely a tv show expanded into a movie. But Ive never thought of it as the best.

I think that it will be the Enterprise E that will be in the new series if the Enterprise is there at all. Considering that they would have to rebuild the Enterprise D sets, and how horrible that they look in Generations, I think that will be a good thing.Plus the E will be 25 years old at that point, so we might not even see her. As iconic as the D is is, you guys might just end up getting the F.

 

 

That sounds bad when I put it that way though......

For once I would like to see an Enterprise stick around for a while.  Aside from the original 1701, were ANY of them in service for more than 20 years?  According to the TNG Technical Manual, the Galaxy Class spaceframe had a lifespan of 100 years.  I assume most Starfleet ships have the potential to keep running for that long.  I would like to see a major Enterprise E refit, but I'll be very disappointed if it has been supplanted already.  If they decide to bump the Picard series 25 additional years into the future, I might be more accepting of a new ship, but I'm assuming they will continue the one year real time = one year fiction time that we've seen throughout the TNG era. I want a legendary Enterprise that's been in service for half a century, not one that's replaced as frequently as an iPhone.

*sigh* Enterprise tried too hard to be too advanced too early.

 

To be fair, I thought Enterprise tried really hard to be more primitive than TOS. They were careful on what was referenced when, the Ferengi were never named as such and the First Contact tie in Borg Episode was a surprisingly well done "In The Mountains of Madness" homage.

 

Enterprise struggled, no doubt (And the Suliban and attack on Earth were about as subtle to post-9/11 America as a sledgehammer to the face, come on guys), but it at least failed by virtue of trying. As opposed to say Voyager, that failed and never tried.

As I remember it, the A was retired because it really was a electronic crapshow (As seen in Star Trek V) and the Constitution Class was already headed for the breakers when Kirk and Company saved Earth in IV and was given as a token of appreciation. Really, the A was the ship that should not have been.

 

B never got over the whole "Killed James T. Kirk, Savior of Earth and the Federation" on its maiden run.

 

C was forcibly "retired" by Romulans while protecting a Klingon colony.

 

D was built with balsa wood and duct tape and was apparently such a Engineering nightmare that they went through a dozen Chief Engineers before they finally had to solve the issue by putting the blind guy in charge. But he couldn't sneeze over in this one corner, or else the Warp Core would automatically breech.

 

E is...still around, last I knew?

I have no idea at all why you would fear they'd use the D or remove the TNG films from canon.  No idea whatsoever.

 

 

I think that it will be the Enterprise E that will be in the new series if the Enterprise is there at all. Considering that they would have to rebuild the Enterprise D sets, and how horrible that they look in Generations, I think that will be a good thing.Plus the E will be 25 years old at that point, so we might not even see her. As iconic as the D is is, you guys might just end up getting the F.

 

 

That sounds bad when I put it that way though......

 

It would be really weird if it turned out that Captain Picard gets to stay a Captain for as long as he will and they'll keep giving him a new Enterprise whenever he needs one.  I think it was probably a mistake not to give his Sovereign a different name, but if something happened to it and they give him an F, they all deserve to be flunked.  That's just a weird idea.

 

I am eager to hear what the premise of the new show is.  It's a week or so on and no one else has announced that they are coming back.  Is he the main character?  A cameo?  A supporting role?  He might be someone's mentor or he might be an ambassador travelling aboard someone else's ship.  If he really is just the Captain of the Enterprise-F with Worf and Crusher and Geordi and Guinan and Madden along for the ride...I would watch it of course.  But that's kinda boring.
