Cool Sci-Fi Stuff: Possible Life on Titan; Ruined City of Battleship Island

Do aliens live on Saturn's earth-ish moon Titan?

The spectacular decay of the abandoned city of Battleship Island, once the most densely populated urban area in the world, now a crumbling ruin.

I never heard of that before. All I can do is wonder why Hollywood doesn't make a lot of post-apocalytpic B-movies and cut down on expenses by just photographing the city as it is actually is, no special effects or set-dressing required.

I guess the answer is: Because most of the buildings there look like they're one 3-on-the-Richter-scale foot-tickler from toppling over.

Thanks to ArthurK (who posted the Titan item in the sidebar) and EdwardR.


And... "The Expendables," a movie which actually doesn't look all that interesting -- except I need to see The Expendables to appreciate The Making of The Expendables featurette that'll be on the DVD, which should be really interesting.

Thanks to rdbrewer for that.


Now It Can Be Revealed: Everyone in TV shows and movies reads the exact same edition of the exact same newspaper.

EdwardR. suggests a RedEye "Pinch" joke... but I can't think of one.
