Serenity Sequel!, among other things. Something about a HIV vaccine. Whatever, Firefly lives again!

Are you just trying to mess with me?:( If only it were true - I love Firefly and Serenity!!!!! In my book Firefly and Freaks and Geeks tie for the best shows to have been pulled off-air after sadly short runs. However, if they really were to make a Serenity sequel that would be AWESOME

Sweet news Greg!!!! Just watched Firefly again on friday night....a nice bit of sci-fi meets old bad Wash got it though, I liked the character.

Look forward to the sequel!!!!!!!

That is great news - if it's real... They could have done in Inara and left Wash to fly again. But, that's just a personal opinion as I liked him more. (Guess they figured Mal needs girlfriend to keep him company.) Can't wait to see what they will have in store for River this go-around. (Come-on Joss (Whedon) don't let us down!!!)

As an aside - neither Beerman nor I could get the link to come up. It just gave us our Google News homepages.

Oh man, now I feel really bad for posting this, because it isn't real. All the stories are so outrageously unlikely - peace between China and Tibet, Conagra converting their corporate-industrial farms into co-ops, credit card companies capping their interest rates at 8%...

If you follow any of the links, you will arrive at a page that announces:

I created my fake Google News page in 2007, mostly for my own amusement. I was depressed about the state of the world and all the dismal headlines, and I wanted to be able to imagine a much better world. I made the fake site my home page, as a mini-experiment in the power of positive thinking.

Anyway, I picked the most unlikely sounding story - that Firefly / Serenity would somehow have a sequel - and I am afraid I have gotten everyone's hopes up.


I shall now go and drink more tequila and watch more depressing scenes from movies.

Still, the fake news is quite the one about the credit card companies capping interest rates at 8%.....yeah, when pigs fly!!!!!

See - that will teach me to not look closely and just make assumptions about what's in front of my face!!

Now that I'm actually paying attention (mostly), the stories are great!!! Okay, so I'm bummed about Serenity but it's nice to know my credit cards will be capped. Phew! That's a big weight off my mind!!!

Share the tequila, Greg! No bogarting the bottle!!
