Are you a FOG?

I see that bloody X Factor has finished at last. This song that's been released smacks to me of a typical move by the recording company to monopolise on the season rather than spend on a decent original song.

I heard it for the first time today, 'Hallelujah', I wonder if the 'Hallelujah Chorus' might have been somewhat inspirational in this, and if you listen to the guitar riff, doesn't REM's 'Everybody Hurts' come to mind?

Plagiarised, profiteering rubbish. FOG FOG FOG.

He didn't manage to get around the world in eighty days because not only did he forget his visas but he also forgot his passport too!

He COULDN'T, you nitwit !!!!  American Express didn't start their card service until October 1, 1958. Thus, as the story of Mr. Phileas Fogg's trip starts on the day of October 2, 1872, he could not have taken an AmEx Card around the world as American Express was still confining their operations primarily to the State of New York.

(Jees, the man needs help - serious help. Can't even keep his centuries straight!)

Then she deserves to be properly FOG'ed but she would probably enjoy it, overriding the purpose of such castigation.

You can FOG her if you want - she's not my type.  ;D

I love it. In an early Star Trek TNG episode they find Data's brother Lore. Lore is really bad, older than Data and uses contractions but is otherwise identical. In the final fight scene Data beams Lore off the ship into space (apparently between the hull and shields as the shields are up) after the fight Riker asks Data if he's OK Data says "I'm Fine" I saw this and thought "oh crap" but no one noticed and the episode ended.

  Don't you think there would be safety devises that would prevent beaming anyone outside the ship into space? I see a lot of things happen in sci-fi that could easily be avoided with safety precautions. Often you see a person ejected into space by opening an airlock. In the space shuttle the door outside opens in which prevents it being opened if the airlock is pressurized.
