Basilisks aren't real.
Unless she was talking about Corytophanidae. But I suspect she wasn't.
also known as Jesus Lizards.
There's a band called The Jesus Lizard.
she's really into noise rock
so shut up
Common basilisk, Basiliscus basiliscus
Red-headed basilisk, Basiliscus galeritus
Plumed basilisk, Basiliscus plumifrons
Striped or Brown Basilisk, Basiliscus vittatus
 Other nicknames
Jesus Christ lizards
I'm afraid claiming that you covered the nicknames and the existence of a band with one of said nicknames purely by stating the family is unadulterated balderdash. How far up the taxonomy do you get to go and still retain ownership of all the underlying information? "Oh, it's an animal" "yeah, a lizard" "yeah that's what I said" "hmm.. pretty cool that they can run across water by smashing their feet hard into it" "YEAH THAT'S WHAT I SAID DURRR"
You disgust me.
From now on I will answer all queries with 'everything'.
MY GOD, WHAT IS THIS. IT'S LIKE IT'S FICTION OR SOMETHING
Middle East, North Africa etc are the disputed areas which are constantly fought over in the eternal war.
He goes goes on about this at length in "the book".
just like it's part of the Oceania region in real life.
Here's a map:
Ireland is also part of Oceania, and while I don't think he goes into any detail about it, I doubt it consists entirely of proles, though even so, the successive generations of an Irish family could have probably worked their way up the British social ladder in, let's say the 100 years or so between the largest period of Irish emigration and the beginning of Big Brother's reign. Though there have probably been O'Briens in Britain since long before the 19th century anyway.
THAT COULDN'T HAPPEN.
and let gravity pull the poster down and the natural adhesive nature of the blutac or whatever stick it down?
Unless it was actually tacked in with pins, in which case, hmm.
He got killed by a bit of plane, terrible business really.
Your actions in the future won't affect what happens before them, so Marty will just have to save his kids again when the present catches up. It would make more sense if Doc just told them 'Hey Marty, your kids are going to do something illegal on this date in the future, you might want to note the date down and take them away on vacation.'
Doc Brown actually told Marty about 5 times "Hey Marty, seriously, your kids turn out like dicks. Can you try and raise them better please? Or at the very least, take them on hoiday on this date?" and every time Marty said he would do but flaked the hell out every time, so the 6th time the Doc just took him to the future instead as he was bored.
So in fact, Doc could tell 2015 Marty to take his kids away on that specific date to save 1985 Marty from having to remember something Doc told him 30 years ago. However 2015 Marty isn't the protagonist of the film so that would be silly. oh fuck I'm going to be 30 in 2015.
Just someone saying stuff to someone else.
But the point remains, there was absolutely no need for Marty to go to the future :(
Another interesting BTTF tidbit: in BTTF 3 the fact that there are TWO DeLoreans in 1885 is never addressed.
They break one but there is also the other one that Doc has hid for Marty to find in the future. I wondered why they didn't just use the one Doc hid but then realised they can't use it otherwise Marty wouldn't be able to get back to 1885. If they used it Marty would just disappear! The thought tickles me is all.
In Titanic, the lake that Jack told Rose he went ice fishing on when she was threatening to jump is Lake Wissota, a man-made lake in Wisconsin near Chippewa Falls (where Jack grew up). The lake was only filled with water in 1918 when a power company built a dam on the Chippewa River, six years after the Titanic sank. FFS, get it right.
He insists there were no such birds native to Britain in that period.
I love nerdalingers.
I am truly astonished nobody thought it would be a good idea to discontinue the eye security clearance of the employee whom the oracles accused of murder
Also, future cars come equipped with juice and a key right off the production line
When they put him in the Halo machine the guy says, "They do say that all your dreams will come true". Earlier in the narrative there is the comment that in the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king, a reference to the fact he is king of his own alternate reality.
Consider that not only do they not block out the eye reading, an incredibly ruthless man decides to just give himself up, Cruise's wife gets back together with him after clearly being completely over him and they have a new son to replace the one they lost. Meanwhile all the telepaths who were used like lab rats are suddenly let go free and get to live in a beautiful cottage somewhere and the whole world is great?
If Gilliam had made that film everyone would be certain it was a dream; because Spielberg made it it has to be just a face-value nice fluffy ending.
by the fact it's a film made by Spielberg
There is no way, not even a suggestion, that it ends like that in a world made by Spielberg
(Good band name.)
why don't they see Tom Cruise et al arresting the person about to commit the murder? WHAT THEY SEE IS NOT WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FUTURE.
Thats kind of the dillema posed by the narrative.
Not only were they putting people away based on dubious information they were putting them in indefinite comas. Rubbish justice.
Absolutely no way would pre-cog justice have been allowed, especially not for 5 years or whatever it was. Just find the whole premise highly unlikely.
14.8 stone is unacceptable for someone my height.
Governments do that all the time.
Although I understand in the film it is a pilot scheme, I still don't think any civilized nation would have allowed it to even get to that stage.
No wonder Farrell was busting balls.
he'd be all like 'ahh yer shot me in mah chest b'jesus, Oill kill yez all soarwill' then kill EVERYONE
all the Germans are actually American. WHAT'S THAT ABOUT?
Couldn't even just make them have the one accent.
LEARN YOUR HISTORY. JFC

WTF are you doing? If you can't switch it off at least cov... no, not in its eyes Lex, anywhere but the eyes.
she was always doing that shakey head/well long neck thing as well when she was scared. Take a leaf out of your brothers book.
the ghosts can go through walls and stuff so why can't they get out of the vacuums?
