I'm creating this here as a discussion area for every thing space. Yeah, just an area to discus stuff...
Have you seen / read The Martian? It's pretty good competence porn. :)
No wonder i always hear moans whenever that movie is showing. :D
But, really... what da fuq?!
Heh, "competence porn" just means "enjoyable story where the characters are competent". Lots of fiction only works because the characters are really rather stupid...
Yeah, but the porn bit... XD
Not only in fiction though.
Honestly, lots of Hollywood's scenarios happens simply because one character just doesn't have the logical reaction or doesn't ask a simple question.
It's so infuriating to see people hating each other simply because one idiot didn't think of asking if A was at the pub at 20:00.
