  1. I agee, but I don't watch C.S.I. as realistic, but only because it's fun ... and has become a ritual for me: Wednesday nights, 8:15 pm. When it switched channels here in Germany, I stopped watching the German broadcast, but resumed watching the show's original when I found out that something indeed was going on between Grissom and Sara. I never liked the spin-offs much. One of these shows was enough for me. I've found something interesting on the symbolism of bees, though. Your comment, ein042, made me curios. That's what I found: I found that particularly interesting - chastity and purity - with respect to your question. And who would have thought that? I didn't know, but if I am ever asked what the most common insect used for heraldry is, now I know.
  2. C.S.I. is always a must-see for me ...
  3. I love Criminal Minds, but to be honest I've never seen it in line with Millennium. And I still don't quite see that many similarities. Maybe because I loved the overal mythology of Millennium so much, and I don't see that anywhere in Criminal Minds. To me it's just another crime show (and I watch a lot of them), but none ever fascinated me as much in terms of overall plot as Millennium did. In most crime shows, there isn't even an overall plot. Oh, and just a side note: It's Hotch(ner), not Kotch. ;-) But I loved that scene ...
  4. I understand what you mean, but at the same time I am doubtful that we will ever fully understand ancient drawings and texts because our frame of reference is so radically different. When we try to interpret this drawings and texts, we can also only speculate. I believe ideas and interpretations can be as easily - and less obviously sometimes - contaminated as actual samples. Just think of paradigm shifts in practically all sciences. And there are bound to be more. And in addition, of course, you cannot use drawings and writings for the same purpose as DNA samples. To get back to the 2012 issue: I am surprised that it has not really caught on in the media. At least it hasn't here. And right now, TV stations are competing hard to bring the worst-case-scenario ... ... but as Y2K I would still put the whole 2012-will-bring-the-end-of-the-world issue into the new-age-let's-make-some-money category. And I came across this quote on wiki, and I really liked it: [Wiki/Long Count Calender and 2012]
  5. I've been following this thread for some time, and now I want to throw in my two cents. As to human nature, for some reason I find it hard to believe that we have changed so much in our nature as some of you suggest. Certainly, the rules of society have changed, yet some of the biggest atrocities have been committed in the last hundred years. Of course, man (and I include women here too) is not corrupted by society - because man is society, man is corrupted by other man. And it's happening, everyday, everywhere. This summer five people were found shot at a train station here in Germany. They were part of a mafia clan family and shot by members of a rivalling one - a vendetta where the police counted more than seventy shots fired at only five people; many of them had multiple wounds, when a single one of these was enough to kill them. And it will continue. When I try to imagine living in caves, in cold and rain and snow, without food for my family, killing rivaling tribes to bring my family through doesn't sound all that bad. It's always a matter of perspective. And from today's perspective, with what we know and what we have forgotten about it, it's always easy to condemn the past. What makes any of us so sure we would not kill were it for our immediate survival? We kill and let die for far lesser reasons every single day. And to get back on topic: Recently I saw a documentary on Nostradamus. And it was interesting how his prophecies were sought after especially in times of perceived crises. There has been a rise in sales numbers of Nostradamus books since the 1980s. Far more than each man thinking he lives in a very important time, I think each generation likes to believe we live in a time close to the end of the world, or at least human civilization. I'm still waiting for the first connection to be made between global warming, the bird flu and 2012. Don't you agree that in 2012 the polar caps will have melted to an irreversible point, entire regions will be flooded to a degree that we're all close to drowning - and to top it all of, the avian flu will finally have mutated into a highly dangerous human variant. And then it's Christmas season 2012, and we will all find ourselves wet and sick, stacked with books that will no longer help us, and soon, scientist have found out, an asteroid the size of England will hit the earth, but at least we know that our end has come because the Mayan predicted it; because sun, earth and center of our galaxy are all neatly ligned up. And it's probably for the better anyway. Happy 2013! To sum it all up: I think it's easy to take anything and find precisely what you were looking for in that - like predicting future events from a single text because certain letters appear at every 3. position of a sentence, or something like that. (Funny how these things always predict those events that have come to past, isn't it?) It's easier to claim the Mayan - or anyone - predicted the end of the World, the coming of a (new) God in ten years or a hundred than it is to open your eyes and try to understand why things are the way they are right now, and why some of them scare us while others really should. It's easier to believe an asteroid out of the blue will kill us, or a deadly flu that suddenly appears, than it is to see that, if the end were near, we ourselves had brought it upon us ... Oh yeah, and lest I forget: Have a nice Sunday.
  6. Yeah, that's our bureaucracy at its best. (Although there are studies which imply that the increasing amount of livestock does produce an unprecendented and unexpected amount of methane etc.) There are laws for how big apples have to be and how much bananas must be curved in order to be allowed to be sold. Then again, one of the weirdest ideas regarding global warming, I heard from an American who said that if all Europeans stopped smoking, emissions would be reduced tremendously. I believe that all of these are ineffective ideas when it comes to global warming, but I am also certain that no-one wants to hear what is really necessary to stop, let alone reverse it. Funny article/idea though. Thanks for sharing. :)
  7. Heute läuft um 11.30 Uhr Powder auf ProSieben ... ist ja auch richtiges Stubenhockerwetter heute. :)
  8. Hallo ... LOST habe ich mittlerweile durch, und von MLM habe ich die ersten zwei Staffeln. Die zweite gab's zu Ostern, habe ich aber gerade einem Freund ausgeliehen, der noch nie von Millennium gehört hat ...
  9. I would doubt this plate to be European and very old. Snakes, I think, aren't very unusual in medieval coat of arms, but the shape of the plate and the helmet sort of throw me off. I think at least it's somewhat usual as well, but it is very plain, yet so dominant. Overall, the entire design looks too young to me. If the plate was found in Utah, wouldn't it also look a lot more battered if it was really old? Besides, why would you spell out "Alpha Kappa Kappa" in Greek Letters - and not just AKK, which would come down to the same? I found an entry for Alpha Kappa Kappa at the Utah Valley State College for 2002 (http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1G1-135425058.html) ... maybe it was some student's art project or something?
  10. Yeah, yeah, yeah ... wie passend: Genau zwei Jahre nach Ersterscheinung hat mich heute Morgen die Post aus dem Bett geholt, um mir die erste Staffel MLM (und die erste Staffel Akte X) zu überbringen. (Beide gab es jetzt nämlich sensationell günstig für unter 20 € bei amazon. Da konnte ich nicht widerstehen.) Dabei sollte MLM gar nicht so schnell lieferbar sein, das Päckchen erst in einer Woche kommen. Aber so kann ich beides schon voll genießen, wenn ich in der nächsten Woche frei habe ... jetzt stellt sich nur noch die Frage: Womit anfangen? Naja, ich wünsch Euch allen was ...
  11. LOST ist schon soviel billiger als MLM. Deshalb habe ich mich doch auch erst einmal dafür entschieden - als Vorbereitung auf die zweite Staffel. Vielleicht auch deshalb, weil ich aus MLM seit der letzten Ausstrahlung auch total raus bin. Und irgendwann fehlt es einem dann nicht mehr so. Aber mit den MLM-DVD-Boxen geht's dann demnächst los. Habe nämlich zum Geburtstag genug Geld bekommen, um mir alle vier (MLM + Lost) leisten zu können ... nur wollte ich für den Anfang nicht so gierig sein. Aber vielen Dank für Eure Hilfe. :)
  12. Ich kenne Lost schon aus der Fernsehausstrahlung ... and I am hopelessly addicted ... es ist im Prinzip mein MLM-TV-Ersatz geworden ... aber danke für Deine Antwort.
  13. Ich stehe vor einer schweren Wahl: Ich will mir unbedingt eine der oben genannten DVD-Boxen kaufen, weiß aber nicht, mit welcher ich anfangen soll. Klar steht MLM ganz oben auf meiner Liste, aber ich bin auch fasziniert von Lost - und weil die zweite Staffel ja demnächst anläuft, wäre es vielleicht ganz nett ... Ich bin auf Eure Hilfe angewiesen: Was würdet Ihr Euch als erstes zulegen?
  14. I'm wondering whether "they don't want the public at large to know about" things like that because no one would believe them anyway. And if so, is because we (I include myself in a rather sceptical public) have lost all faith*, or are they really just ... well, you name it ... On a side note: Where did you get from that Martin Luther burned people? The most violent thing he ever did from all I know was nail his theses to a church door. The conflict that erupted was between the Catholic church and Luther's followers, but I don't think it was Luther going out there and burning people himself.
  15. Correct me if I'm wrong but the link directs me towards The New York Daily News which doesn't have anything to do with the NYT. And Wikipedia writes about the Daily News: "The Daily News is generally seen as politically midway between the two other major New York City dailies, the more liberal New York Times, and the more conservative New York Post, though tending more in the direction of liberalism."
