Sod the replicators - how about a holodeck? :D (although replicators would be cool)

Also...portal guns*! And the special boot thingys that let you fall as far as you like without taking any damage.

And probably robot dinosaurs or something. Proper ones, with their own proper AI who stomp around doing dinosaur-y things. Ooh, Mr Chomps. A whole army of him! :D

 

 

 

*Okay, so this may be somewhat impractical given the material that portalable surfaces need to be made of, but still...

I'm with Ameena: Portal Guns. Or other fictional ways to transport individuals instantly from one place to another! :-)

Teleporter pads of some means would be awesome. I'd prefer them to portal guns since from what I know of them from the Portal games, to get a proper use of them you'd have to lay down a portal, go ALLLLLL the way to where you want it to end up, and lay down a second one. If ou want to travel somewhere within eyesight then it's great, but long-range teleportation wouldn't really be worth it for longer distances in most cases.

But with teleporter pads you could just make your way to your local pad, pop in the coordinates to the one that best fits your needs of where you're destination is, and you're there!

I was wondering if someone would say "cure for cancer" or the like, forum you did not disappoint.

 

New day, new question!

Greater Than Games has grown, it has gained things and lost things. Do you miss the page where you could make the staff dance?

Spring, Summer Autumn or Winter?

 

Note that there is no fall...

Monty Python. Love it? Hate it? Know of it but not enthralled? Not aware of it? Spam?

So only Powerhound_2000 has heard of them? Oh well.

New day, new question!

What's the best part of the weekend (or days off if you don't work a monday to friday job)?

 

No questions on Sundays from me, if someone else wants to post one, feel free.

Do you often suffer from "a case of the Mondays"?

New day, new question!

The question is late today, what's the best excuse you've heard/used for being late?

So in high school in Toronto (Canada), you need to provide a note from your parents whenever you are late and/or absent, in order to explain being late/absent from school.  However, once you turn 18, you're legally an adult and so you write your own note (no parents required)...

A friend of mine, arriving 15 minutes late to school one day, decided to have a little fun with his note (since he had turned 18).  His note explained that the reason he was late was because he had to travel back in time in order to stop a Nazi invasion of Australia.  He briefly detailed some of his exploits and explained that when travelling 65-odd years back to the present, it's hard to get the timing just right and as a result he was late for class.

Now, technically the teacher had to accept that explanation anyway.  But seeing as the class he had been late for was creative writing, she was more than happy to take his note as is.

That is such a good excuse that everyone else felt their excuses would pale beside it. Yep. That's definitely my excuse why no one else responded.

 

New day, new question!

Do you recycle? Does your local government make it easier for you to do so?

Yes I recycle.   Yes and no.   Waste Management is a public utility but not all of them offer recycling.   The area I’m in does at least but I know that’s not the case everywhere in this city.

Yes I recycle but the building I live in doesn't have a place for recycling. So I have to bring all my recyclables over to my parents house whenever I go there... which is a bit annoying.

The town I live in has an decent recycling program overall.

Yeah, every house gets a supply of large clear plastic bags for stuff like paper/card, plastic, cans, etc, and a large brown bin outside the house for "garden waste" or whatever you want to call it. There are also recycling bins in plenty of places, like in town centres and stuff, labelled for specific types of rubbish (paper, glass, etc). Generally there's plenty of encouragement to recycle stuff, really, which is nice :).

I’ve been a few different theatres but it’s not a frequent thing.  Most recently saw a production of Hair.  Didn’t know too much about it before seeing it beyond being anti Vietnam War.

Yeah, been to see a few musicals in London, and a few stand-ups at the theatre nearest to where I live.

 

Edit - Oh, and a couple of Shakespeare plays when I was at school (one of which was performed at the Globe).

There's a local dinner-and-a-show place (Beef and Boards) that spouse and I attend every month or two with her mom. They do all kinds of shows, mostly musicals, with both local and touring teams of performers. 

(We've also hit various shows both on Broadway and off, in New York, Chicago, and here in Indianapolis, over the years.)

It's been years since I've been to the theatre, when i did go it was usually to see a Gilbert and Sullivan play. The most interesting theatre I went to was the Minack, an outdoor theatre right by the sea.

What's your ideal holiday? Staying at home catching up on TV/Books/Sleep? Going to the beach? Camping outdoors?

What was your favourite subject at school?

Mine was maths, question with definitive answers.
