Why do TV shows and films that have space travel elements always show spaceships with the trustees (fnarr) on the whole time? 

My limited understanding of it is that because space is a vacuum, once you're at your desired speed, you don't need thrust as there are no frictional forces to slow you down. You only then need thrust to change course, speed up  or reverse thrust to slow down/stop.

The excellent The Expanse on Netflix is one of the few sci fi shows I've seen where they actually try to stick to the laws of physics regarding space travel.  Thrust one way to get up to speed, weeks or months of travel depending on distance, then flip the ship round halfway and thrust to slow down to get where they are going.

I've actually just been bingeing The Expanse, which is what put the question in my head.

Watched the last 5 episodes last night, and you're correct, it's been excellent.

EDIT - apart form that twat Miller.  I was glad when he got fired into Venus' sulphuric acidy atmosphere.

Season 1 is 10 or 12 (10 I think), season 2 is 13.

EDIT, just seen that there is a 3rd season, which isn't on Netflix.  Must try for it on my Firestick.

I've just finished S3.  It's available from many unreputable sources.  It's fantastic.  I've read all the books and it's doing the opposite of Game of Thrones and firing through them at a fair rate.  S2 and 3 take up about 3 books. 

SyFy cancelled it but Amazon have picked it up for S4 

ETA: behave. Miller is an excellent character.

try and be a more considerate lover - slow and steady can be just as rewarding as frantic and desperate sometimes

Actually that nearly happened in 1969. When it became clear that America was going to win the race to the Moon the Russians switched the focus of their space programme to space stations, so to fill in time until the first station was ready they launched three Soyuz capsules on consecutive days intending that two would dock and the third would film it. However something went wrong and the docking was cancelled.

Whatever you do, don't ever Google Space Docking. Just don't.

I've just seen a goth over the age of 40. My question is: do the rest of them just die young, or do they look in the mirror one morning and think "get a f***ing grip"?  

P&B goths: have you ever died young? 

Solitaire is back under the account @Jambo99, and will be able to answer such questions.

Tangentially, is there a difference between Goths and Juggalos, other than a compulsory interest in Insane Clown Posse for the latter?

I just passed an office with somebody listening to the Lord of the Rings score. 

Q:  Is listening to film music weird?   i.e. songs that were written for one particular film and not usually heard away from it?   Would you play it around other people or would you keep it as your dirty little secret using Spotify in private mode?

I have many film soundtracks saved on my Spotify and would have no qualms with playing it around other people. Film music can be fucking tremendous, I'm not sure why there should be embarrassment about listening to it.
