Sometimes, the internet shows you science-fiction-movie scenes which were obviously cut away because of some problems with common taste.
Anyway, you are asking yourself, what might have been the movie part you were probably missing:

What might have been the purpose of this part of the clone army?

Or why did we never hear of some special satisfying program properties of C-3PO ?

Nothing special. Just Day-one of basic training. Strip naked in front of the commander and stand in attention. They soon will experience that this is only the least of the humiliations they will be confronted with during their forthcoming training. After all, they are supposed to become elite troops!

These reports are making me more and more curious, because now, I really would like to know how a supersonic machine can fly without any infrared exhaustion or breaking through sound barriers without any remarkable sound, speeding up so fast that any known human aircraft looks like children's toys in comparison to them.

It still rather seems like science fiction and like a "anti-gravity-thruster" or an "anti-gravitational-engine" which should still be impossible for "us humans" up to now, but obviously, someone (or some"thing"?) has built something like that and it works! ... And how it does! And I really would like to know who is in command of these incredible machines:

Time is running so fast that we all can hardly believe it. But there were sometimes unlikely stories starting before you were born which no one expected to go on in something like "literary eternity".
But they did.

In 1961, in Germany a science-fiction-saga was started of which the publishers thought there would never be more than about 50 "dime novels", which were very popular in those "pre-TV-times" for rapid consumption and even faster oblivion. There were thousands of dime novels about love, adventures, historical heros etc.
But this dime novel had something special for school kids and the young people interested in future and science fiction. It was about an US-American astronaut, "Perry Rhodan", who landed with his crew on the moon and found there by accident the space ship of a crew from a superior culture which made there an emergency landing and needed help.
This story developped a life on its own and almost all German school boys once read one of the following stories if they were not collectors from the start.

And now this saga has its 60th birthday, Perry Rhodan and his crew found a way to immortality on the planet of an immortal culture (=> Rhodan & Co. are now 3.000 years old!) and the few German publishers who are still alive in reality can hardly believe for themselves that there are now generations of writers working for "Perry Rhodan" which is now the longest existing literary science fiction saga on this planet!



And in German an article from the weekly "Der Spiegel" with the title "The Perry Rhodan Saga becomes 60 Years old - The Galactical "Everburner" (= Long-Runner [?] ) :

And because this thread is also about fantasy and I had again an encounter with a kind of "Rotkäppchen" I simply must mention this:

We are living in a world in which you cannot believe anything of anyone any more and so, you always should try to convince yourself about the stories which are told and we Germans were for example shocked by the news that the fairy-tale "Der gestiefelte Kater" (= "Puss in Boots") was not really as the friendly Brothers Grimm (= Gebrüder Grimm = Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm) had told us.
According to latest news from Hollywood in 2011, the "Puss in Boots" was something like a Mexican outlaw with the friendly image of Zorro, speaking his name with a Spanish accent: "I am 'derr gestiffeltte Katterrr' " instead of "der gestiefelte Kater" !!!

Ashampoo_Snap_2021.09.07_09h23m24s_001_.jpg OK, especially the German boys were delighted by this news about the "Puss in Boots", but their parents did not really understand this world anymore.

And then this:

Another famous example for such a common lie is the story of "Little Red Riding Hood", which was really rejected by an Italian legal court. As far as I know, in Italy, even fictional characters can be judged by legal courts as long as there is public interest and someone who was probably traumatized by this fairy-tale in his or her childhood, made a legal complaint against this "little fairy-tale-slut with her exciting red clothes and caps".

Believe it or not, the Italian court found the poor wolf "innocent" and to be a victim of the bad defamation of the "Little Red Riding Hood" and her family!
There even was a German newspaper story - "The Affair of the Little Red Riding Hood" - about that Italian court decision some decades ago, because we Germans were absolutely shocked that our fairy-tale's female hero was in fact a little criminal "Lolita" although many of our German animal rights activists were celebrating because they always claimed this special poor wolf must have been absolutely innocent:


So, we see, justice can be done even centuries after "fictional" crimes and truth will always triumph in the end!

The earliest version of the story that gives her a red head-covering is Charles Perrault's 'Le petit chaperon rouge' - I think 'un chaperon' could be any sort of child's headwear. Rotkäppchen would be a translation from that, and the earliest English versions seem to have called her Little Red-Cap. I can't find when the 'Riding Hood' was introduced, but I guess the bouncy rhythm of 'Little Red 'Riding Hood' is more appealing than the rather dumpy 'Little Red Cap'. As you say, at no point in the story does she ride anything.

Dear Eulalia,

obviously we both were wrong: "Paparazzi Photos" from the forest of fairy-tales prove that the Italian court was right about "Rotkäppchen" (= "Red Riding Hood") because she was not as innocent as we all believed and in fact, she really did some rides with the "big bad wolf" until she found him more and more boring:

Concerning Fantasy, Science Fiction and Reality, you always have to be prepared for a surprise made in Russia.
Russia once had some of the best Sci-Fi-Movies, the first satellite around the Earth (Sputnik), the first man in space (Yuri Gagarin) and now - incredible in these times, but true - the first actress in space! Russia is making the first commercial movie in space and she plays right now - inside the International Space Station (!) - a female doctor who is sent to the ISS in order to save a cosmonaut's life who became ill there and cannot return to Earth because of his unusual infection.

Russia obviously wanted to be faster than Tom Cruise who is said to be planning a movie on board of the ISS, too. The name of this Russian movie is "Wysow" = "Challenge".

Julia Peresild (sometimes also written: Yulia Pyeressild) is now the first professional actress in space, chosen from 3.000 other applicants for this job, obviously topfit and made a cosmonaut's training in record time in order to be there now:

Up to now, I found these news only in German and Russian on EuroNews:

Being a science-fiction-fan for a long time, I was always wondering if there are so much differences in the development of extraterrestrial civilizations - compared to ours.
Probably not ...

On the other hand, there might be parallel worlds with astonishing similarities in synonyms ...

But I am also always afraid of the dark side, which might be even more temptative in other galaxies and worlds:

Only very few people know this secret, but Yoda once visited Earth while fleeing the "Evil Empire" and wrote some of the most ingenious song lyrics for a living on Earth.
Although he was quite successful as a songwriter in the earthly music scene of the 1960's and 1970's, he remained unrecognized in the background to train the Jedi again and rebuild their knighthood.
Also, "FabFour" sounds somehow better than "FabFive".

... and he must also have worked as linguistic researcher on Earth changing not only song texts but also some of the most influential news magazines around the world.
For example, when Disney bought George Lucas's "Star Wars" company, I read for the first time in the German weekly "Der Spiegel" a headline like this one in which the most important information is densed in the first words, but difficult to translate (which shows additionally what a genius Yoda was):

"4 Milliarden Dollar hinblättern Du musst!" = "4 Billion Dollars flick forward You must!"

Other examples of which I thought, these must be rhymes from Yoda's German era:

"Dein ist mein ganzes Herz, Du bist mein Reim auf Schmerz!" (= "Yours is all my heart, you are my rhyme on pain!" [= Beautiful German love song from an old-fashioned time when the German music stars really looked like your neighbour or the mechanic in your car repair shop and had names like them!] )


or a famous blonde German alien singer who was accidentally on the run from the Evil Empire at the same time as Yoda:

"Blau, blau, blau blüht der Enzian" (= "Blue, blue, blue, blooms the Gentian" [German folk song] )

:eek: ;)

After having mentioned here a few postings before the first actress in space, this man certainly must not be missing here.

William Shatner / Captain Kirk is now the oldest man & actor who ever was in space:


By the way: About 30 years ago, I once had an old German professor for "political science and temporary history" in my University who told his young students that they (= we) would be living in a world with "an increasing synchronicity of the asynchronous", in other words: parts of this world would become a more or less "intelligent science-fiction-world" while others would rest in Middle-Ages and sometimes, these worlds would collide at unexpected places and therefore, one morning, the news would seem to be more and more "crazy" for us.

I think, he was right and this morning I had again this feeling, because during the last 24 hours I heard this:

1. William Shater / Captain Kirk was in space - really!

2. The German singer "Nena" who in 1984 had mentioned Captain Kirk in her worldwide successful song "99 Luftballons" / "99 Red Balloons" ...


... almost got the satirical German award of "The Golden Tin Foil Hat" for her silly opinion of the "not so dangerous Covid-19", but she just missed this prize because another German singer ("The Wendler") had even much more crazy ideas!
:facepalm:

3. Yesterday evening, a mad "Danish archer" killed 5 Nowegians near Oslo by arrows and the police in Norway still investigates if this mad archer was simply crazy or a terrorist!
:eek: :doh:

Are these crazy news not a real example of the "increasing synchronicity of the asynchronous" my professor once predicted for mankind?

:eek: :facepalm:
