Being from the area, I had no idea that Klaatu is Canadian.

I'm quite sure Klaatu is from another planet :P

BTW what was the robot's name? (he said, shamelessly hijacking the thread)

That WAS shameless.

And a damn easy question!

GORT!

But in the 2008 remake, Klaatu never spoke his name. It was the scientists that 'named' him with an annagram that by no small coincedence, was G.O.R.T.

What did G.O.R.T. stand for?

(FYI: I don't know the answer...)
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Well, I didn't until I went to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Day_the_Earth_Stood_Still_(2008_film)

Fascinating stuff. I can waste an entire afternoon on Wikipedia! :)

I also was searching, since I'm not really into SciFi. Found a different resource.

And there even seems to be some Brit vs. Yankee issues in the authorship of the references. The URL you cite uses "Organised" while IMDB (URL below) uses "Organized".

Absolutely. That's what I said "shamelessly."

Anyway, to bring it back a bit:

"You come down as fast as lightning." And that's about as obscure, I think, as I can get on an English-language board.

But maybe this one: "No loving, no caring, no program for pairing."
