So free tuition, housing, blah blah... so not free money? Otherwise I'm confused.

if your tuition/housing/food/etc. costs are less than the money you're provided via scholarship or grant, you're left with a surplus. happens all the time. i don't see how that part is so hard to understand.

also, you started this tangent, so i blame you >:3

I see. All the Americans I talk to are gob smacked that I get paid to go college and they have to pay to go to college. :3 I guess it's different in different parts of the states? you're so bloody big it's ridiculous... and its not just the country...

i think i've got you confused — what i'm talking about is scholarships and grants. using those, plenty of people in the US get free tuition, housing, etc. and so forth... the government isn't paying (unless it's a gov't-sponsored program, of course).

I just recently started watching Stargate Voyager... I mean Universe and it seems alright thus far. A bit over the top, but I can see they are really pushing the character development in this one. Can't really judge it yet as I've only watched about 6 episodes. The whole lost and trying to get home thing like Voyager kind of annoys me though. And where the hell are the alien races? I'm sure they are coming but they really should be introduced already.

lol Stargate: Voyager... you're right, though. idk why i didn't think of that myself D: D: D:

idk, after watching the entirety of SG-1 and Atlantis, they just changed too much for my tastes. i liked the interaction between the characters, the scathing back-and-forth, the slightly cheesy drama, the 'gotta save the world' story arcs... and of course the aliens. all Universe has so far is some sand bug things from one of the first couple episodes, and those can't hold a candle to the myriad of alien cultures and races in the previous two series.

i think it boils down to Universe having too much straight-up drama and not enough comedy and wit to keep me occupied, y'know? :3

@josh: it does, it really does. i'd give it three or four episodes before making the call to stop watching altogether; that's about how long it took for the series to grow on me, anyway :3

Too true. It's amazing how ignorant people become once they leave adolescence. They were all doing the same when they were in school.

speaking as an adult who hasn't been paying much attention to the conversation at hand — just like those adolescent years themselves, learning how to cuss is a horribly awkward phase, and it takes time to grind the rough edges away. everyone knows that kids cuss in school, but just because we lived through it too doesn't necessarily mean we feel like reliving the experience in the name of entertainment. 'shock value' is a cheap way to add humor anyway, and the problem is that said humor won't fly with everyone — you win some, you lose some. it's no big deal :3

that said, have i recommended Stargate: SG-1 or Atlantis yet? because they're both amazing and i love them to bits. idk why i didn't watch them when they were on TV (probably work schedule conflicts), but they've got both entire series-es (and the movies iirc) up on Netflix. if you're in the mood to sink to your ears in good sci-fi times, definitely give it a shot.

Stargate: Universe, though... can't recommend it, really. they strayed from the format of the show's previous incarnations and went for a more realistic, gritty feel. i was disappointed :(
