So wait. The green goo that David collects - that was thought to be an elixir for immortality? And then it was learned it wasn't? I never got that impression. I thought it was supposed to be 'something to be studied by feeding it to a human' but not hypothesized to be a fountain of youth.
The timeline itself needs to explain where the Queen came from. Queen vs evolution is the question here. Where was the Queen in ALIEN, was there One? What exactly is the Queen in relation to egg creation that is the paradox.
Wait a second!
While the "Alien vs Predator" is not a pure Alien movie it features Charles Bishop Weyland AND the Aliens, very close to our timeline so the timeline starts earlier, like around year 2004!
The darn Aliens were already here brought to Earth by the Predators during the time of the Mayan or Aztec civilisation...
Great presentation IGN. My favourite movie though was ALIEN the very first one with Tom Skerrit, and Segourney Weaver. Specifically the Nostromo- I just like big ships and the alien gunner on the ancient juggernaut.
What I don't get is why there's so many different types of xenomorphs and its never explained why they're so different. More importantly in alien covenant we see what seems to be the classical alien, same eggs and face hugger but the chestburster comes out in complete xenomorph form, instead of the larva shape it comes out in the first 4 movies...
I still have yet to see someone explain the discrepancy from alien 1 or 2 (cant remember which) where they find the engineer in the seat of the ship. But in Prometheus the engineer doesnt die sitting in the seat. together? is it a different engineer all together?
Is it true that the alien/predator universe is the same universe as blade runner? It'd be kinda cool to see Harrison Ford fighting xenomorphs, but since he's 70 ish in 2049 it would have to be a replicant of him or something. Otherwise he'd be like 150 by the time a sequel to covenant occurs
The Genius Who Invented Economics Blogging Reveals How He Got Everything Right And Whats Coming Next.
Bill McBride, Calculated Risk The economics blogosphere was invented in early 2005 by a retired technology executive in Southern California named Bill McBride.
Thank God for that, because his blog, Calculated Risk, has been an invaluable and influential read for numerous reasons.
For one thing, its always been right. In its early days, when we all started reading it, it was way ahead of the curve in terms of warning about the housing bubble, horrible bank lending practices, and generally the economic collapse. From his perch in Newport Beach, CA he could see first hand the people taking out loans worth 10x their income, filling their Inland Empire garages with Harleys and Boats that they obviously couldnt afford.
But unlike many other bloggers who made a name during the crisis, he didnt stick with the doom and gloom message. He started making arguments for a GDP rebound in 2009.
Then in February of this year, he made his most important call: He announced: The Housing Bottom Is Here . McBride had officially come full circle from his days warning of housing collapse. Today, 8 months later, the housing bottom is becoming general consensus.
In addition to being correct on the economy, Calculated Risk has imparted the internet with other good practices, such as dutifully charting out the data, and examining data in an impartial, apolitical, non-hysterical manner.
