Very funny, Foust.

I usually prefer serious content in my entertainment. But not always. Sometimes, after a hard day, I want to just shut down and vegetate for a little while. Sometimes, after a frustrating day of serious topics, I just want to laugh.

If I then turn on the television to watch Stargate and the episode is about terrorism, I'll be annoyed. Even if it clearly wasn't intended as a "message" episode (which sometimes it was).

Websites have urged readers to trick specially trained NYPD Labrador retrievers with gunpowder or ammonium nitrate-laced tablets in a plan to stop trains and cause the evacuation of the Garden during the convention.

One site instructs readers, "Go to a rifle, pistol or skeet shooting range, spend an hour shooting to saturate clothing with the smell of gunpowder, go directly to a New Jersey Transit, LIRR or MTA subway train headed for Penn Station.

"Also try to have at least two people on a train in different locations, sit or stand near the doors as the train approaches the station, try to get near police and dogs, loiter as long as possible around the dog, try to pet it if possible. If the dog alerts on your scent, do not leave or resist; the situation will cause a major disruption of the train schedule ... ."

"It is important that the police call in all possible resources to investigate the situation," the site says. " ... This will result in the maximum disruption. With any luck, Madison Square Garden will be evacuated."

Honestly this is not just stupid it's sick. To draw all available forces away from the convention could result (heaven forbid) in large causalties if terrorits attacked the convention. In my opinion anyone who pulls one of these things should get the bok thrown at him, and the brick, and the dirt clods, and the rocks, and the ice pick, and the shovel, and the hand grenade, etc.

I'm not sure, Drogo. But it wasn't a subterfuge. I think it was the one that aired recently (and will be on again this weekend). A group of religious fanatics (who don't know what the Goa'uld really are) tried to take over an alien planet as soon as they found out the Stargate was real.

Oh right from season Eight, where they cause the global war because of the Stargate being active, and al the god guys kindof look ike nazis. I don't really see the Terrorism connection in that episode, do explain.

I'm not really clear on that episode--I was kind of half-asleep while I was watching it. It seems to me now, thinking back, that the fanatics had risen up and seized power through terrorist activity, but I may not be remembering it correctly. I'm certain I have seen terrorists in previous seasons, but I don't remember when.
