  • Question for our members who are not in the United States; was The Jetsons popular where you live? I'm actually unsure if it was primarily a US audience kind of show or had more global appeal.

    The FDA doesn't want us to have the unique health benefits of Sleepy Chicken! We will not be stopped though 🤘🏼😂 Just kidding please do not eat this... I think that goes without saying but just in case...

    British child of the 1990s here. I definitely watched it, but it didn't have anywhere near the same cultural impact of The Flintstones. In fact, I think the only Jetsons thing I owned was the VHS of when they crossed-over with The Flintstones.

    Also, Niquil Chicken is both safe and delici...zzzzz

  • So, wather on Earth came from space. So there is no possible way that the key ingredients for water to form on Earth were already here. If there is no way for a planet to naturally have what it needs to form water and that it has to come from some far-off asteroid, how did it come to be in the asteroid?

    I remember the Jetsons being shown on UK TV when I was younger.  It was as popular as any other cartoon of the time I believe such as The Flintstones (although that may have the edge).

  • As an outside observer who does not use TikTok (and turns into Walt Kowalski from Gran Torino every time I read about or see anything from it) it seems to me like it might be a public health issue lol. I'm fairly internet savvy, young-ish (31 going on 32), and I've never understood the appeal of TikTok at all. Just seems like a massive time waster without much (if any) benefits.

    We are aware of The Jetsons in as much as we are aware of the Flintstones (if you're of a certain age).

    The people in Dubai don't like the Flintstones, but the people in Abu Dhabi do.

    It was pretty popular in India but if I recall correctly , it used to be on really late at night or during school hours. Popular regardless because the concept was pretty solid.

    I quit social media many years ago because I could see what it was turning into. They are just platforms for the weak-minded. Tons of people on there trying to get you to do some of the stupidest things like the Tide pod challenge, even if it is just a meme and they don't say to do something.

    What if the spacecraft hits the asteroid and it does not have any effect?

    Nyquil chicken - Darwin will take care of that.

    That is far better than the impact knocking it off the desired course, or it does go where NASA wants but the unintended consequences set it on a collision course for Earth anyway (either directly or indirectly)...

    NyQuil / TikTok challenges: I wish the people responsible for starting these irresponsible/dangerous/illegal trends/challenges would get arrested & prosecuted.

    The amount of acetaminophen that you would ingest from that Nyquil would cook your liver.... That's the main problem with abusing cough medicine. It is true that the dextromethorphan in cough medicine can have hallucinogenic properties (hence the "robo-trip"), but people forget about the amount of acetaminophen in these things, which can totally kill you if you take too much at once.

    I agree, and I would add Fawlty Towers and Are You Being Served? to that list. Wife wasn't into Monty Python, but she got into Fawlty Towers. Every Friday night we would watch an episode. She also got into watching Are You Being Served? on a regular basis. 

    They tried doing an American version of Fawlty Towers, but it sucked. I didn't make it through the 1st episode.

  • I have to admit during the last raging cold I had, Nyquil chicken would have tempted me...LOL

    I really hope redirecting that asteroid doesn't upset the alien race we inadvertently aim it at. It's these little misunderstandings that start bug wars...

    You know all these guys with the theories - Just because you have some tantalizing suggestive facts doesn't mean that it actually happened that way. After all, I can make the argument with the available facts that aliens dropped off the dinosaurs to kill off mankind... 

    You know the difference between a theory and an assumption? 

    A theory went to college.

    I took it that he was referring to all but one Doctor being portrayed by Brits.

    There have so far been 13 episodic Doctors, of whom one was portrayed by an American, Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor.  There has also been the War Doctor and the Renegade Doctor, both also portrayed by Brits.

    There have also been "non-canon" films in which the Doctor was portrayed by ... Brits again.

    The discovery offers new support for the theory that life on Earth may have been seeded from outer space."

    Give me a break!  Such tenuous theorising ... another example of the "religion" of "science".

    "The Jetsons" was reasonably popular here in New Zealand, too ... some quite entertaining characters including George, Jane, Judy, Elroy, Rosie, and even Astro.

    We also had "The Flintstones", "Sesame Street", "The Lone Ranger", "The Littlest Hobo", ... and later on, "The Smurfs".

    There was also "The Clangers" a long time ago ... another UK treasure.

    Paul McGann is definitely a Brit, he has three brothers who are also actors, the single episode was just set in the states!

    I'm not sure Russel T Davis coming back will improve things, although he revived it he was also the start of the PC / Woke elements that sometimes spoil it, I remember when it was just a good SciFi romp! What it needs is a Terry Nation clone to get it back to its roots.
