commented on What Do You Think of the Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Trailer?
Thought that it was Patrick Stewart doing the narration at first and did a bit of an eyeroll -- I just hope that when this unnamed dude (Khan? Gary Mitchell? Alice Eve's cuckolded boyfriend?) talks about how he's "returned", it doesn't mean that they're mining the Pit of Fanservice.

@40: It's doesn't matter if WE trust rating agencies... it's whether other people in the economy do, and collapse the economy based on those decisions.
And sure, I don't think that subsidizing education in EVERYTHING for EVERYONE is wise public policy by any means, or that people that engaged in speculation over responsible investment should be rewarded. But when "market adjustments" involve extended hardship and economic disruption for a lot of people at a time when deregulation and tax cuts are the only strategies the rich want to entertain, it's hard to see how "suck it up, buttercup" is a good public policy approach.

I'm starting to lose my desire for the chick here. Cute or not, if this fictional character is seriously into this tool there have to be some deep psychological issues she has to deal with first.
I mean, seriously. If she needs to explain an online music service to him, he's a cretin.
