You know, the bird that you see at the start of the Prometheus trailers, what does it mean? I've not seen anyone talking about this.

It is the logo for RS's film company called Scott Free. It doesnt have anything to do with the movie, it's just there along with the 20th Century Fox logo.

It's pretty big right? Psshaw, doubt you could take that thing down with a 12-gauge

In the original Greek myth, after the titan Prometheus steals fire from the gods and shares it with humans, he is captured and punished by being chained and having an eagle/vulture eat his liver. he constantly regenerates, so the torture is eternal.
I've always assumed the bird to be this eagle/vulture, a symbol of the punishment awaiting those who steal from the gods.
it seems that I'm wrong, but given the company name, some sort of link to the original myth is at least a possibility. :)

Who the hell does RSA think they are, a bunch of Robin Hoods? Rediculous

I saw a bus yesterday and it scared a pidgeon away.....the bus was bright red.
I think it may be a reference to Prometheus but i cant nail it.
My wife broke a nail once....perhaps that could mean the SJ ship survives lol

Edited... Nothing to say of any consequence (although I thought I did... changed my mind)

Mark = Win
Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born.
Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.
