Thank you Christopher, for sharing that with us. Giger is such an amazing man and artist. Going to Feature this so more people can get the chance to see it.
That bar and Museum is really worth visiting, trust me. . . There is also a store there that sells some really beautiful items. You can buy stuff from the store online too.

That survey is not Blade Runner related at all. This is a Blade Runner fansite not a survey site, please respect the people who post here by keeping the topic Blade Runner related. I didn't mind helping you before with your surveys but this link has nothing to do with Blade Runner in any way. I am locking this topic and deleting the link as it leads to what seems to be a random site and I am not comfortable sending members who trust us at Scified and bladerunner2-movie.com there. I am also uncomfortable with you asking members to make an account offsite to answer your questions when you could ask them here as you did before. Please PM me if you have any questions. I personally would like some clear info on who you are and why you are doing this survey and especially how questions about drug trials and viruses relate in any way to the movie Blade Runner. If I sound harsh I really don't mean to be btw. I hope you understand my concerns.

Awesome post! Gonna read Kyle J. Novak's analysis. I agree and so did Rutger about the relationship between Pris and Roy being incestuous. Very thought provoking thread Sawa.

Patience is a virtue. They JUST got started on the project.

All I can say is, if you want to learn about the artificial bacteria, read about Craig Venter and watch his Ted Talks.

Np, I didn't detect any rough tone.
Yes I took a look at them. I especially liked the one titled: "Attorney Kirk Nurmi Picks His Nose Throughout Arias Murder Trial!".

I have been hearing about these oil-eating bacteria for years, they are naturally occurring in the environment. Someone made the association that they could clean up oil spills on a larger scale. It's an effort to clean up the environment with a natural substance that won't pollute or cause damage to people or the planet. It's a good thing.
Found some info on it for you:
National Geographic:Nature Fighting Back Against Gulf Oil Spill
Discovery Channel: Microbes Munching Gulf Oil
Scientific American: Meet the Microbes Eating the Gulf Oil Spill [Slide Show]

Haha that's freaken' awesome! So 80's oh my gosh, the two songs sound almost alike, I preffer the Japanse version.

@poach; It's unlikely that happened because A: Weyland would never have accepted being subservient to anyone like David was and B: if he was successful in implanting his mind into a robot body he no doubt would have wanted to announce it to the world. Interesting theory though.

My answers for the Blade Runner questionnaire for public; I did not answer them all.
1. Do you prefer the director’s cut of Blade runner, if so why?
A: I do, it removed the horrid narration but left the rest of the movie almost exactly as it was originally but for the changed ending with Rachel.
4. Did you like the narrative voiceover from Deckard within the theatrical version?
A: I never liked it, I felt it was almost condescending.
5. What would you say is the most widely accepted version of Blade Runner?
A: I would imagine it's the Final Cut. That is the version most people say they enjoyed the most.
6. Do you feel the use of music is one of the key focuses on Blade Runner?
A: The music is almost more important than the spoken word in this movie. The visuals are the heart and the music is the soul of the movie.

Here are my answers for the research focus group – I did not answer them all.
1. Is Deckard a replicant what are your views?
A: Yes he is , Ridley has said it twice now.
2. How long can Deckard live if he is a non-human?
A: I would assume a normal human lifespan.
3. Where are the off world colonies?
A: I know one is on Mars.
5. When and why were replicants created?
A: They were created as slave labor for the off world colonies.
6. How does the voight kampff test work?
A: It measures the fluctuation of the pupil and involuntary dilation of the iris in order to detects the presence of empathy in an individual.
8. Is it possible that Deckard does not know he is a replicant?
A: I don't think he knows.
9. What is the significance of the unicorn scene and does this signify that in fact this memory was implanted into Deckard’s mind making him a replicant?
A : I understood he was implanted with Gaff's memories. This is why Gaff knew him so well.
10. Was the glow from Deckard’s eye just a lighting accident during filming or this also another sign that Deckard is in fact a replicant?
A: It means he is a Replicant. I highly doubt Ridley would do something "by accident" in his movies, he is too visual and does too many takes for that to happen. Also, he changes his movies over and over and he never removed that scene, so that means Ridley meant for it to be there.
P.S; Thanks for asking Sawa, I too am curious and would love to know what focus group is this for!

"so the first one mainly involves the controversial topic of turning the alien into a simple bug in the second movie"-invaderzim42
@invaderzim42; If I recall correctly, Ridley Scott and O’Bannon always referred to the Xeno as being an insect, specifically an Ant.
