Just how bad was the road carnage, back in the days of no seatbelts, of no crumple zones, and of solid metal steering columns?
I helped jezel do the last little bit of moving out of her old place this evening, mainly by shuttling a load full of stuff and nonsense to the closest thrift place, and then mopping all the hard floors.
I downloaded the most recent episode of "Enterprise", just to watch the modified opening sequence. The episode is set entirely in the "Dark Mirror Universe" (the "Spock's beard" world, for people who know Trek classic), with no intersection at all with the regular "good people" universe.
The sequence was pretty well done. The standard opening sequence is a montage of ships of exploration, starting with the earliest sail, up to FTL warp ships. The altered montage was entirely about ships of war, and of powerful weapons, from cannon to tanks to nukes to photorps.
An interesting word for the day. It's an "wasei eigo", which is an english derived word used in Japan but not in English speaking areas. The word is "skinship" (actually "sukinshippu"). It's a portmanteau of "skin" and "friendship".
