About Just Jim

Profile Information

  • Location Central Florida
  • Interests I remember when I was a kid I watched the first moon landing on my grandparents big TV, along with my grandpa, who was equally fascinated.
    And I've watched each and every satellite, probe, and rover to go into the solar system since.
    That's why I'm so hooked on this game.... it's like I get to do it all over again, and this time I'm in command... cool!
    I read a lot... probably too much, if that is possible. My favorite authors are Frank Herbert and H.P. Lovecraft.
    I also love studying history... and obviously I'm a huge science fact and fiction fanatic.

  1. Ya know... I won't normally say anything about what @adsii1970 and I discuss privately, but I do remember him saying something the other day about James Earl Jones... lmao.....
  2. Ahhhh... near the beginning, Gandalf the wizard finds a hobbit named Sam listening outside Frodo Baggin's window.....Here's the clip:
  3. Why are we arguing over this? This thread is stuff to complain about... I'm complaining about the media and news outlets coverage... and I've said my piece. I respectfully agree to disagree and move on.
  4. If it makes you feel any better... I just did the same thing with my coffee reading this!
  5. When I agreed, this isn't what I meant. What I was referring to is how some of the so-called "news networks" can spend maybe 4-5 minutes talking about what's actually important going on around the world, and then spend 20 minutes talking about who wore what at the Oscars... and then another 10 minutes on the actual Oscars... who cares??? I turn to the news to get news, not celebrity gossip... there are plenty of other channels and websites devoted to that already. This is what I get really upset with.
  6. Love the Cat In Space avatar!!!  Looks like one of mine!!!  :D

  7. Understood... this is the kind of gyroscope I grew up with... one of these could keep me amused for hours:
  8. Ahhh... is it like someone said, also a gyroscope? I loved the ones we had when I was a kid, but they looked a lot different.
  9. OK, needless to say I've been out of school for quite a while, and my daughter graduated a few years ago. So I'm asking in all seriousness, and hopefully not opening a big can of worms... I've seen pictures of these all over lately... what exactly is this thing?
  10. I could not agree with this one more! It's one of my biggest problems with the media.
  11. "Nooooooo......" (he says in his best Gandalf voice...) "Perhaps.... I've thought of a better use for you..... "
  12. Oh, if it was up to Gene, I have a feeling the J.Jim would end up being the name of a newly commissioned garbage scow... lmao.....
  13. Hehehe... yup! Gene definitely doesn't like J. Jim... lmao.... Honestly, I'm loving how @adsii1970 is building to what looks like some sort of conflict or showdown between J. Jim and Gene.... I don't know what's gonna happen, but I have a feeling it's gonna be good... lol.....
  14. Oh, that's right.. you make planet packs!!!! Oh, cool! I look forward to a red giant system!!!
