That the premise for Space Camp is really really goofy, right? How unbelievably unsafe was it to test the main boosters with students onboard the space shuttle? How does that ever even get approved as a class field trip? Where is the oversight? How did people keep their jobs over this screw up? Then even after they have launched these punks into orbit, the numnuts from NASA can't figure out how to bring the kids home but the teens can do that for themselves because as we know all teen girls know Morse Code in 1986 (don't ask) Why does any movie involving a return to Earth need to make the radio silence so dramatic? It's always life or death during the ionization blackout. Why wear helmets if you don't have oxygen or spacesuits? Why am I so glad that everyone could learn their life lessons BEFORE LANDING THE FREAKING SHUTTLE AND BEFORE THE INVESTIGATION AND INQUEST BEGINS!?! Why does having a spunky Lea Thompson in your 80s movie just make everything better?
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
