So Many Eggs

Posted 2011.03.20 10.35 in Aquaria

How do they all fit in there? How does she have enough room for so many eggs inside her shell, without totally displacing her own body?

Snails: bigger on the inside than they are on the outside.

Time For A Geek Rant

I’m just going to come out and say it. This new Dr. Who is not impressing me. Yeah, not only am I geeky enough to watch the series, but I’m geeky enough to comment on it here on teh interwebz. (Caution: spoilerz ahead.)

I’ve only seen three episodes so far; the one where he first appears, the one with the space whale, and the one with the daleks. I’ve also seen the endless promotional clips they’re running on Space of course. (Why do they ¬†have a clip of him aiminig a gun?! The doctor doesn’t like guns, doesn’t use guns. When the last doctor took up a gun in his last episode, it was supposed to be a big huge thing, to show just how desperate things had become. And even then, he didn’t ¬†actually shoot anyone, he shot a machine.)

The first ep wasn’t too bad, the new doctor was a bit flakey but I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt because he had just regenerated and that’s supposed to leave him messed up for a while. (Back in the old days, he had to have like a week or two of bedrest after a regeneration.) I liked the new companion, Amy Pond, and the writers seemed to be setting up some interesting arc stuff for the season – i.e. the cracks in the wall and the bad guy telling the doctor that the cracks are appearing all over, on their own. There was some suspense, the whole unseen-monster-ish kind of thing. On the other hand there were some stupid cheap-laughs kind of things, like the internet wanker having to help save the world with all the world leaders. Still, like I said, new doctor, first ep, so cut it some slack.
