Re: vote for your fav subjects

But your promises are of no value at all since you broke all of them. Of course your vow is stronger than a promise. Anything is larger than 0. But how strong is your vow? One out of a hundred?

uhhh.... strong. Closer to a hundred than zero.
I don't know. Probably above 75 at least...

How did you get 75?

Re: vote for your fav subjects

What? I dunno. It was an estimate. Or a hopeful estimate.
Why are we even discussing this?
I liked this thread better on page 2. Actually before we stopped talking about music, this thread was my favourite.

Mostly you steered it here.

See you later need some rest.

I know. Another problem, I'll put it on the list.

I will sleep because I haven't slept in 14 hours.

Just 'cause you can sleep for however long you want.
I'm still young, I need my sleep.
I saw a Star Trek: TNG about the dangers of not sleeping. & I do keep warning you.

Re: vote for your fav subjects

Well... realistically it wasn't about the dangers of not sleeping it was about the dangers of not dreaming during REM. & even though I already knew what would happen if I stopped dreaming it still sparked a bit of fear into my mind.
But still it turned out as an interesting conclusion to the episode.

No, it was still Star Trek TNG.
The episode was called 'Night Terrors'. The only person who actually dreamt through the episode was Deanna & she only had nightmares.

Re: vote for your fav subjects

I thought it was alright. I liked the ending.
Obviously not the best episode I've seen but the hallucinations of the crew members was amusing.

If it has a lot of Deanna Troi then it is bore, yawn, snore!

No way! Deanna's cool! Although her on-off relationship with Riker is frustrating to watch.
Actually the more I watch Star Trek the harder I find it to pick a favourite character.

Me too! It is hard choosing someone who isn't better than Deanna or her vile mother.

Re: vote for your fav subjects

I know! I feel so sorry for Jean-Luc whenever Deanna's mum turns up. & Deanna, that must be a little embarrassing for her.

I think Data's my favourite anyway.

Really? That's good.
I also have an affinity for Geordi. He's just awesome.

It's probably not, but I don't see any way around it.
When I was younger I used to like Wesley Crusher.

Well, y'know, Wesley is just an innocent little random. Do like Wil Wheaton, he's not bad.
What's wrong with Geordi? I really like him. He's probably my second favourite.
