A little departure from the realm of coding in favour of the realm of fiction. I like Science Fiction. Really I do. It’s just that I don’t consider many things to be Science Fiction that are typically gathered under this banner. Star Wars isn’t SF, it’s cowboys, knights and wizards in space. Star Trek couldn’t possibly be more pathetic from a purely scientific point of view. Planet Of The Apes? Darwin would spin in his grave so quickly it would destabilize the orbit of the Earth (to loosely borrow from Douglas Adams). Independence Day. Fun? Sure. Science? Bollocks.
