Fringe – The Aruba War – aka the Pen is mightier than the … October 7, 2010

A simple item like a pen can set off a chain reaction that ends up with three (or more) people dead?


Fringe has a neat- super plot – but the minor episode plots are still amazing. The whole concept of a human being able to calculate all the permutations and combinations was a great concept.

We also learned more about the mirror Earth.

Apparently there was an – Aruba War  – (remember the homeless guy on the street? he had a sign that said Aruba War veteran — guess the battle was over who had the best beach..)

And we know that they’ve got some serious air quality issues too.

Olivia is falling apart in the mirror universe and she will crack soon….

well Aruba play an important part in World War 2 and is also important tactically as is in the Caribbean and in war you can control center and south America, also the Caribbean… so it makes sense.

Doesn’t really make sense hehe, except if Chavez starts a war with the Netherlands. Or if Aruba is used as decoy to get to Venezuela. But that tiny island can’t be a base to control central Amerika and South Amerika and the Carribean, realistically speaking.

The idea of someone calculating possible outcomes to predict the future was in an episode of Star Trek DS9 where a group of supersmart people could predict the future with their minds even to the point of one guy determining the end of the universe. They were being used to determine a way of winning the war by tweaking minor variables in the present to affect the future.
