Knight Rider

8:07pm: Ok, so I just started watching the new Knight Rider. The first disappointment...why is it not in HD?

8:10pm: Ok so now I'm 10 mins into the new show, and I just heard Val's voice for KITT, I don't like it at all. Sounds pretty stupid if you ask me.

8:17pm: Just got done watching Ford's mustang commercials, obviously this is going to be a giant add for Ford. The girl just got in the car and the thugs started firing at the car, come on self healing, the effects look like they're from the 80's.

8:21pm: Hmmm..surprise...all vehicles so far have been Fords.

8:21pm: Hey, I just saw a Volvo, owned by Ford motor company of course. Oh, commercial..again.

8:27pm: Ok back from commercial, chase scene continues. Hmm, KITT just changed colors and license plate. Obvious CGI overlay that looked ridicilous. The effects in this just keep getting worse and worse.

8:28pm: Chase is over and oooh surprise the girl is surprised that the car was programmed to go look for somebody. Boy originality is just busting from the scenes in this show, sarcasm in voice.

8:31pm: Val Kilmer..I mean KITT is speaking and it's waveform spectrum does not even match his voice. OMG KITT just changed back and somewhow a wing grew out of the back of the tail of the car. I must have missed it disappearing in the first place.

8:32pm: WOW, I'm so surprised...yet another commercial break.

8:36pm: Back from commercial. Ok, this show sucks. Channel change I guess.

Today's Einstein Quote

Measured objectively, what a man can wrest from Truth by passionate striving is utterly infinitesimal. But the striving frees us from the bonds of the self and makes us comrades of those who are the best and the greatest.

Today's Einstein Quote

One reason why mathematics enjoys special esteem, above all other sciences, is that its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable, while those of other sciences are to some extent debatable and in constant danger of being overthrown by newly discovered facts.
