Oct 25th 2007 12:39AM It's not a good idea for someone with only one eye to drive since drivers depend on peripheral vision and on depth perception. Shouldn't the other one drive?
Oct 25th 2007 12:25AM Your point about the special effects being bad is correct, especially in the way she jumps from building to building. The bionics may make her strong but they cannot change the laws of physics. And those laws require that a launched object's path is parabolic. Always. You can't get around it, unless you have wings. (Look up a picture of a parabola to see what that looks like if you are not familiar with it.) For her to jump straight across between two buildings is impossible. Anyone who's lived on the Earth for a little while learns this intuitively even if he/she cannot describe it mathematically. In today's episode she flew from one building to another and it looked fake since it wasn't parabolic.

Aug 25th 2007 12:00AM Because I often web-surf from a comfortable reclining chair, I have the monitor about 4 feet from my eyes; therefore, I like to have the font a bit bigger in the browser. I didn't want to change anything permanently since some web pages are formatted to be readable ONLY in the default font size, so each time I open a new window or tab in Firefox (and with RSS feeds I often open 5 or 6 tabs at once), I automatically click "CTRL++" each time. I would love to have a quicker way of enlarging the font.
Apr 25th 2007 11:52PM 75 Wall Street was never the headquarters of JP Morgan Chase. A large company frequently has employees in many different buildings and 75 Wall Street was simply one of the buildings where some JPM Chase employees worked.
Before Chase Manhattan took over JP Morgan, the headquarters of Chase was at 270 Park Avenue and the headquarters remained in that building after Chase bought JP Morgan.
Apr 6th 2007 10:45PM No one has commented on the fact that he was flying a nearly-empty 707 around the world. Isn't that wasteful? I can understand if he were flying a plane full of his friends to a party, but to fly an enormous plane like that nearly empty sure is a lot of fuel and carbon dioxide per person. Maybe he should have flown first class on a commercial jet (celebrities do that, you know).
Dec 18th 2006 8:27PM A couple of people have asked, so I will answer about who the real Rudy is. They said (rather quickly) that the real Rudy was a plumber who died under mysterious circumstances a number of years ago.
It's left to the audience to wonder who made him die, just as it was left to us to assume that the old lady got killed by the "cable guy".
So that means that Brian himself must have actually gone to 4 years of college, then medical school, then residency, and then have gotten onto the staff at the hospital.
Dec 18th 2006 2:19AM Did anyone else worry that, while she was lying there, Deb was awake and hearing the discussion between the two of them? I did, but apparently she didn't hear any hint that the two were brothers or that Dexter kills people.
What a relief.
Anyway, next season Doakes may catch on. We'll see.
Nov 27th 2006 4:42PM When the child Dexter was seriously injured, they emphasized the fact that he has a rare blood type (AB negative) and they needed someone to donate that blood so he could survive. It was, of course, his REAL father who donated the blood and for whom Dexter was making the card. They made it as if the foster father just HAD to go back to the real father because otherwise Dexter would die.
But that's irrelevant. Harry didn't need Dexter's real father. People with that rare blood type are actually quite lucky in that the hospital could have pulled practically any blood out of their refrigerator to give to Dexter. The only kind he couldn't have was Rh positive blood, but they could have given him O, A, B, or AB negative.
