coming soon

i want to get this out there so i can lay claim to the idea (in conjunction with Tim, Laurel, Mia, and Leila, who all have their fingers in the concept as well). So there's this movie, Snakes on a Plane... you might have heard of it?

Well I bet you haven't heard of the sequel, Snakes on a Spaceship. Just think about it: snakes, no longer hindered by the restrictive forces of gravity, able to writhe and slink and swim through the air, winding their bodies like so many undulating reptiles of death... not to mention that zero-g leads to the exciting prospect of floating venom globules, which is possibly the greatest idea in the history of American cinema.

The movie would also contain Samuel L. Jackson uttering the immortal line:

There's motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking rocket!
which is unrivaled in its awesomeness.

I think there is also a cameo role for a Dave Barry-esque "snakes in the toilet" moment here.

um... hate to burst the bubble and all, but zero-g doesn't really work like that. the snakes could writhe (which, in retrospect, would be v. funny), but they wouldn't actually GO anywhere, lacking friction. unless you affixed yourself to something stable and threw them. which would be *really* funny.

okay, enough physics nerdiness. it would be funny. huzzah for zero-g!

Liz, what's to say the snakes can't propel themselves off of things? gravity-free self-wall-launching snakes! aaaaaah!
