If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

The family watched "1776" while I was at work, when I got home, we watched "Captain America - The First Avenger" and now we're watching "Independence Day."

I like "1776," although I'll admit some of the side characters are grating (I'm looking at YOU Richard Henry LEE.)

Independence Day always bothered me. I can't hardly get a PC to talk to a Mac but no trouble hooking right up to an alien computer. Plus if you can fly a crop duster certainly flying an alien space ship made to be picketed with testicles is a breeze.

Quite amazing how people live in a world of fiction today. What day is Star Wars day?

First off, it's a 1940's "pulp fiction" story upgraded for today. Otherwise, the storyline will rarely take studied scrutiny.

Having said that; Jeff Goldblum's character WAS supposed to be a computer genius, AND the aliens were supposed to be using our technology to coordinate their own systems, so it's not TOO outrageous that he'd be able to develop a virus for their system. I do think it was odd that he was able to develop a graphic (the skull) as well!

Um, the "crop duster" doesn't fly the alien spaceship, the fighter pilot (Will Smith) does. And he even acknowledges that it's all "BS"
