2006

As we pass from 2005 to 2006, the march of time takes us inexorably further into the future, and the date is closer now to 2010 than it is to 2001.  I don't want to go all Golden Agey on you, but it does feel like we've moved from a clean, pristine, Kier Dullea and Stanley Kubrick philosophical thriller world into a darker, louder, Roy Scheider and Peter Hyams action movie world.  Or am I just getting nostalgic in my old age?

And where's my moon base, dammit?  I'm pretty sure I was promised a moon base.

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.

On the plus side, didn't 2010 have a sort of happyish ending, as opposed to merely confusing?

As for the moon base, it blew up back in 1999.
