1) Message boards : Cafe SETI : BBC Shows - An American's Perspective (Message 1705947)
Posted 6 hours ago by Profile James C.
I've been watching some shows from the BBC and it put how big the Earth is into perspective. Seeing fictional events and drama transpire in London feels foreign to me. But while watching American TV these things would be happening in LA or New York and feel more natural for me as a viewer. Interesting take on my perspective.

We have a large multi-country group here, does anyone else suffer from this while watching shows produced in other countries?

I started watching Doctor Who from the BBC. The re-make that is. I can say this, when they switch the doctor its heartbreaking for about 5 episodes then you are back in your element.

Also I have been staying current with Falling Skies, seems to be a bit different plot going on a little less like the stories from before. Without saying any spoilers I will say the current developments have been interesting.

Very interesting! I have considered going with almost the exact same setup that you have done here, but always find myself getting a little nervous about the Geo-Cords for my house being on the internet. But then again you can find most everything about a person who uses the internet on the internet.

Thanks for the share!

Highly agreed. That is one thing that gets me thinking about projects like SETI and when we send information about our galactic location and blood samples and other descriptors about human life. What if something that would enjoy hunting us for sport finds it, and now we have given them a map to where their next set of prey are living? But at the end of the day, these types of things may happen regardless of the actions we take while trying to understand our existence.

Above all, science that is looking for life such as our project I agree with. But there is that primitive fear of no longer being the most powerful higher-order life in existence (or at least being aware of it.)

The Seti project was mentioned in this article I found while surfing the web. I found it interesting and figured I would share it.

Edit: Some slightly offensive language towards the end of the post. So I would mark this as SEMI-NSFW. But overall its an interesting article.

I recall reading that its atmosphere is in super high orbits at times. I also believe it said the it is sometimes near ground level and other times high orbit. Something that was impressive.
