#301 - Freak


Kaye Haychold's ambitious plan

Another fun little factor: natural diseases/huge disasters/climate changes tend to kill lots and lots of people in one fell swoop. Depending on timing they can actually balance out overpopulation problems, albeit not in a very nice way.

I've wondered if real life Earth may actually develop extremely strict population controls- most likely localized by area, though- in the future. China's already made a few steps in that direction... imagine an overpopulated US and Europe and Ja-, uh, well, you get the idea- versus a (forcibly) balanced-out China. America and Britain clings to free reproduction, but China has outlawed it, with lifetime imprisonment (or possibly worse) as a deterrent, with reproduction only to occur through controlled means at centers. Yet China is a far more economically successful country...

And then we wind up with a war, but America and China wind up joining forces, and there's only a small group of rebels, but since they kind of lose the war, most of them just wind up being smugglers or something, but...

Actually I'm not familiar enough with the show to be sure if that's close enough to the history for anyone else to get what I'm joking at by the end. If anyone can figure it out and correct me, thanks!

FYI that's not really China at all. The whole one Child thing is mainly outside of the major cities too, they are relaxing it in general.

However, China and India are both ready for a germ or virus to reduce the population drastically.

I don't get the reference. I don't watch much TV at all. Just Mythbusters once in a blue moon.

I was going for some sort of Firefly joke, but I don't think it's recognizable because, both in terms of the show and actual foreign political knowledge, I honestly don't really know what I'm talking about. ^^' I only sort of halfway know what I'm talking about, that is to say. Sorry. :oops:

Y'know, if Kaye had found a more tranny-positive shrink than Muri, she might've gotten that H-Hold authorization signed, after a year of living full-time as a human without one of course, heh heh.

Is she based at all on Millie Brown, Jenny? I sort of got a little vibe there.

Oh I haven't really seen Firefly yet. I'll probably pick it up on DVD or something in a few years and watch it all at once. It's very popular, but I wasn't aware of it untill it was already a good ways into things, and I'm really anal about watching shows in order. ^.^;;

I just started on "Lexx." I watched the first one, "In His Divine Shadow," last night, will watch the second one before bed tonight. I really enjoyed it!

There aren't many episodes. The entire Firefly box set takes up exactly as much space on my shelf as a single ancient Science Ninja Team Gatchaman II cassette. I managed to nab it for about $20 on sale at Target.

Well, it wasn't so much that America and China joined forces in the war--by the time of that war, they as political entities were not merely history, but LOST PREHISTORY. Their cultural legacies lived on simply because their citizens formed the bulk of the original colonists.

...and worth twice that, easily.

Yes! Mildred Brown was a therapist that helped transsexuals back in the 80's when I lived in the Bay Area and knew Alikat and first met Sandra and Eldenath and rediscovered my old high school best friend Stephen and formed my family and all of that. I didn't ever go to Millie Brown myself, but I knew her and met her at various trannie suppport meetings they had back then.

Muri Kazimahou is very loosely an homage to Mildred Brown.

Lexx was really good. The films were anyways. The T.V. show was interesting, but gradually decended into madness. I'd say it's worth watching, but it's not the best show I've ever seen.

I'll get around to Firefly when I get around to it. It's not that I don't want to, I just don't have any income right now. There's lots of other shows I'd like as well. Most of Stargate for example. I stopped watching around the Jaffa Rebellion arc and missed the Ba'al arc the Replicator arc and the Ori arc.

Maybe this can help a bit..

Sometimes it's a bit tricky, sloooooowly connections...
and I make downloads of the *.flc's with the help of my Firefox-plugins
http://www.downloadhelper.net/
So I can watch it later.
On this way, I was able to watch season 4 of Stargate Atlantis, which is not yet broadcasted in Germany, (comes in 2009)
But the guys which did put it online, are no video cracks, after a few minutes sound and picture wasn't synchronized.
Sorry no "Firefly"" yet there.

You don't need any income to watch Firefly. The entire series is on Hulu, for free!

http://www.hulu.com/firefly

Now, I have heard that you can only watch shows on Hulu if you are in the US, but if you find that you cant, I suggest trying to find a proxy server cheat, which will trick the servers into thinking you are actually in the US.

Yeah, Hulu is U.S. only, like all of those 'free tv!' services. And if I wanted to pirate the show I could. I don't really like to pirate things, most of the time, for reasons beyond the ken of mere mortals, and Firefly is one of the things I don't want to pirate.

I'll get around to it, eventually.

Using a proxy is pirating? It's not like you're torrenting it or anything. You don't end up with anything on your HD. All you have in the end is memories of watching a great show.

I don't think it is an act of piracy to tell the hulu server that your IP address is "true american".
For me it is to complicated to find out the trick to handle it from Germany.
And I even don't know where I could find the needed webpage for it.
But there's no need, I've got the Firefly DVD's.
Maybe you can find a way to rent it at first?
