Logan's Run?!

Jesus. Are you even old enough to make that reference? Next post you'll probably say you've been playing with your Micronauts.

Pull yourself together, Joe. Pull yourself together.

Jenny Agutter is hot. Then and now. It just needed to be said.

Also, Soylent Green is people. -- Joe

Oh that hurt!

I fell under RENEW or should I say RUN, RUNNER!

I'm running I'm running

Well, me too.

The idea came from an IRC conversation to which I was a participant of (forsooth); someone had run into a registration field where the last two year choices were 1955 and "Old."

Since I am me (sci fi watcher, and also lazy), the Logan's Run reference (mandatory euthanasia at 30) was an natural connection. -- Joe

Steer well clear of the firey ritual of carousel. It is brought to you by the makers of Soylent Green. Life clocks are a lie! There is no renewal!

I like the NewsRadio-in-the-future radio ad spot treatment of Soylent Green: "Soylent Green, made from the best stuff on Earth: People!" -- Joe
