uzzled Are we talking about photon torpedoes, quantum torpedoes, matter/antimatter torpedoes? (the list goes on ... Hmmm, ok, I'll bite in (though by no means a military tactics and/or weapons specialist, and especially not when it comes to fictitious weaponry and shielding which none of the serials except for Archer's really talked about in any great detail (i.e., in Enterprise, they had none). From what I know about nukes/fusion weaponry (which isn't a whole...

Of course there's a world of difference b.w cloning and replicator machines. We have cloning today, and that takes live cells; inanimate objects like coffee cups cannot be cloned, anymore than fossils (and why the whole premise behind all those Dino movies is, while entertaining, just plain silly). Then, live cells cannot be replicated at the moment either in a replicator ST sense, but with a proper genetic pattern (and the sequential DNA in the soup) can be grown, and in...
I agree with a lot of what has already been said here (boy, some of you guys really cut to it, don't you? CRUEL ... but yeah, I know, the OP asked, so .... Main thing, apart from tailoring/fit, etc. which is just so darn important that it simply cannot be overstated is, as has also been said but does bear repeating, to dress for the occasion; in a sports bar, there's nothing wrong with wearing a sports jacket but you need to mix it up with casual pieces, like a pair of...
Great thread. Hmmm, let's see. Considering the time Da Vinci "patented" a flight machine, based on a theory of giving humans wings centuries ago, and that a university student just actually made a "flight machine" based on that design which actually worked due to the materials etc. available today that weren't in Da Vinci's time invented/discovered/created yet (although the flight was short, then, also true of the Wright Bros. when they first launched and thus (properly)...
Happy Belated!! As to finding a great place to eat in T.O, like Chicago, they say that if you want, you can eat at a different restaurant every night and never have to hit the same place twice. A little over stated perhaps, but yeah, there are a gazillion places to choose from, and more popping up all the time. As to hipsters and vegans, ... .... .... trust you're making new friends, mate (it's a big city, over 3 million live in the place, with another 5 or so million...
I "vote" for the Tumi also, though the Coach looks good/sounds very practical. Myself, in relation to the Vuitton comment (a brand for brand's sake), I personally don't like wearing brands with large logos; of course athletes and actors do, the former need the sponsorship money so turn their jerseys, etc. into billboards (really think a Vuitton bag would be out of place on the field of play, and highly doubt they'd make a "splash" at the Tour de France even as saddle...

And, why yes, as a rider (English, thus love my British and Aussie fare) who spent quite a bit of time in the Wild West (Alberta and the Rockies, oil and cattle ranch country, the "lone star province") I quickly learned the "westiquette" (and comfort) of cowboy boots, having picked up a rather nice...

First off, excellent post; and to let you gents know, your formula works for us ladies, too (BTW, as a Montrealer, I believe in and always in GREAT footware; we (at least myself) enjoy bespoke, and as such, RMW wholecut for the price, even though the US/CDN buck to the AU has gone awry is still in my op a good deal, whether on sale at the T.O/Van shop or online. It's all relative, isn't it? Secondly, to those gents who ask about the propriety of RMW and/or chelsea/Jod...
