    I find voice control to be a bloody nuisance all round. (What with cars, phones, satnavs, dashcams, TV remotes to say nothing of Alexa. It's like being in a bloody committee meeting.) And why do they all keep calling me 'Dave.' ? :P

    I'd try and take the piss but I also thought Dark Star and Silent Running were excellent films. :P

    However, I noticed on the above YouTube clip that on completion a scene from David Lynch's version of Dune is offered. For this, I would gladly lower Lynch into a giant vat of boiling Brontosaurus Piss. :grr:

    Wow ! Death threats - point taken. I’m guessing @jimbob23 was a full on Stars Wars fan who’d see a comedy sci-fi movie as blasphemous - and I wouldn’t want to try and argue Dark Star’s merits with a guy brandishing a light sabre.

    Try saying "Alexa woof woof" (or device of choice if not Alexa). Preferably with all voice control devices switched on.

    You mean you actually tried it?

    Just think of it this way, any burglers, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, charity collectors etc anywhere in the neighbourhood are probably running for their lives. On the other hand someone may be phoning the RSPCA.,

    Burglars, Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses can be dealt with by the application of Katana and Viking Axe technology. Charities don't deserve this of course, they get the trapdoor over the Piranha Tank. That way they can be happy in that they're contributing to the well being of Peter, Paul and Polonius who can get a bit bored swimming around in the tank all day. :heyhey:
