  1. Zardoz trumps the entire list of freaky 70s flicks into psychedelic submission. Simply watching the movie can induce acid flashbacks.

    in that 1970’s movie list is “A boy and his dog” perhaps one of the top 10 best indie sci-fi movies ever.

    A post-apocalyptic Don Johnson wanders through the wastelands while telekinetically chatting with his furry canine companion. Things seems to be looking up for Don when he stumbles his way into a community full of women who need impregnating, but (believe it or not) things get even weirder after that. Based on a novella by Harlan Ellison, this flick’s enjoyed a pretty solid after-life as a forgotten cult classic … but I just don’t get it.

    david brim is an idiot…the state was not the midwife for the internet.

    The state was the huge block in the way of the internet taking off 20 years befor it actaully did.

    Universities had to start the internet becosue state created monopoly Ma bell stood in the way of any competetor creating it.

    Regardless of the internets “true” creator it is pretty hard ot argue against the fact that the private sector has controlled the internet for some time now and government has had nothing to do with the last 7-10 years of inovation…handing over power to congessional commitee in the form of “Net Nutrality” is garanteened to kill any potential for futher inovation.
