The latest low: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvation_(TV_series)
such a mess, the pilot was not bad, had rather appropriate scientific vibe.
What follows is just bad and incoherent mess. The lowest point was when they send a command to a space probe orbiting Jupiter ... in real time. (distance to Jupiter is over 32 light minutes)

Cheers, John

I would suggest not looking up when walking is the natural thing to do. In "welcome to Vietnam" training we were told to look up by our very short instructor (2 weeks I think) becuz "Americans never look up." Not sure why I remember those words. He also taught us to walk through puddles, not around them, because "Charles has noticed american kids are trained to not walk in puddles."

I watched a documentary where they interviewed a former Colonel in the VC and he said that it was easy to find the American patrols because there where almost always someone smoking.

At the end of Batman vs. Superman, WHY didn't they give the Kryptonite spear to Wonder Woman?

It wouldn't have any effect on her, and after so much exposure to Kryptonite, she was probably stronger than Superman at that point anyway.
