vestassmall.jpg Wind Power has been hailed as the ecological saviour for the planet…now while many may think it’s the Wind that actually powers the wind turbines, we here at ShowMeSciFi.com know better.

On a recent trip through Copenhagen International Airport (CPH) we came across a wind power display from turbine vendor Vestas.

There was something a bit odd about it though and on a closer examination it become more obvious.

Check out the pic below of the (lego) worker in the model that runs the Turbine..


That’s right! Obi-wan Kenobi and The Force!

Canada’s Spaceys – The Worst SciFi Award ‘Show’ Ever? June 11, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in awards, chum, Sci Fi, science fiction, scifi, space, spacey, spaceys.

As proof positive for how ridiculously out of touch Canada’s Space science fiction TV channel is out of touch with what constitutes SciFi – one need look no further than the results of yesterdays Spaceys awards.

Top Space movie of the year?

Casino Royale.

!! I know!! James Bond is all fine and nice but SciFi? i dunno ‘Q’ might make him qualify but still.

For the Favorite Character You Love to hate – the nominees were Gaius Baltar, Caprica 6, Vala Maldoran and Lex Luthor.

Who won?

LEX LUTHER! I know it’s totally nuts. First of all everyone loves Vala and everything she’s brought to Stargate SG-1. Lex Luthor ? It’s just sad.

For favorite TV character – space viewers chose…Stargate Atlantis’ Rodney McKay! UNBELIEVABLE!!

Though the Spacey producers and hosts – who by the way are as far from being SciFi fans as the Oort Cloud is from the Sun – also gave an award to BSG’s Starbuck (and well the y should since she rocks – and is a frakking cylon to boot).

If you too want to be offended by the most pathetic excuse for a SciFi awards show ever..check out spaceys.ca but bring your own baarf bag – you’re going to need it.
