in 5th grade i had a crush on pauly shore, and safety dance was my favorite song. i was also just beginning to wonder about the intricate mysteries of adulthood and sex. these are the only reasons i can come up with for why i rented this awful dirty-joke-fest from blockbuster every weekend (i also habitually rented junior, the one where arnold schwarzenegger is pregnant). like it linked me in to some bizarre world that i knew was dirty and inappropriate but i could innocently watch it without my mom knowing i was doing anything wrong, as if bio-dome held some answer to a question i didn't know how to ask. i will spend the rest of my life wondering why my prepubescent self latched onto certain movies, but other than fulfilling a morbid fascination with one of my mental quirks, this movie really sucks.
Bug (2.32): Living Ship: When adding plants to a bio-dome that is on top of another structure, you may experience 'Invalid position' errors. To resolve this, remove any large objects (refiners, terminals) beneath the bio-dome, place your plants, then replace the large objects. Please report this bug here.
There are five different bio-dome models, and each appears to have a different function. Additionally, there is a bio-dome that can serve as a command center, fittingly called a \"command bio-dome\". SCVs cannot be built from this structure, but they can return minerals and gas to it.
The concept of using the bio-dome as a command center was made specifically during the development of the single player campaign of Wings of Liberty. Strike team meetings were held and took in suggestions about artwork that could enhance the feel of the single player missions. For the Ariel Hanson evacuation missions, the idea was to have these colonization bio domes evacuating with the population. Although the idea behind their creation never came to pass, the command bio domes still show up in the Haven missions. The idea behind the design was simplifying the command center into more of a civilian building.
From 1990 to 1994, there were two Biosphere 2 missions involving a group of scientists assigned to live completely sealed off from the outside world except for communication. In the first mission, the team lived for two years inside the bio-dome. The air they breathed, the water they drank, the food they ate, all had to come from Biosphere 2. In 1994, the second team entered for what was planned to be a nine-month experiment. Yet, due to certain problems, the mission was aborted after six months. During that time the facility was much different. Imagine monkeys swinging from the branches in the rain-forest; pigs and chickens rooting through the grasses of the savanna. The plants and animals existed for the purposes of human consumption and sustainability. Today, the only mammals in the Biosphere are human.
On April 1, the college followed up the original news story with two additional stories on their website. One story indicated that Dole would be relocating their pineapple farms to Houghton as a result of the bio-dome, and another told of squirrels attacking students because of the agreement with Dole.
Bio-cubes, also known as bio-domes, were massive, insulated cube or dome-shaped cities inhabited by the New Mandalorians on their homeworld of Mandalore after centuries of war had reduced its surface to inhospitable desert. The planet's capital city of Sundari was a bio-dome.
According to the release, the idea for the bio-dome came from an aircraft hangar at an old Soviet military airbase near Berlin in Krausnick, Germany, which was converted into a tropical resort of about 194 million cubic feet.
An enormous atmospheric containment unit designed to preserve any inside organisms from hazardous elements beyond the radius of the dome. SG-1 has encountered at least four designs from distinct species that could be considered bio-domes. SG-1 found a planet where the local inhabitants lived under the threat of deadly ultraviolet rays from their sun. But the team helped to find and activate a Goa'uld device that erected an energy dome over the village, protecting the people.
SG-1 encountered a unique, energy-based bio-dome on P3X-289, roughly 2.2 kilometers wide and 500 meters high. The planet's atmosphere had been filled with sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, methane and ammonia, so an energy dome was erected to prevent the toxic atmosphere from reaching the last survivors of the civilization. This dome generated a static charge and a heavy resistance field to let people know when they were about to step beyond it.
The First Commandment - SG-1 journeys to a world where the population is deprived of a sun shield dome capable of protecting the entire people from deadly ultraviolet rays.The Gamekeeper - SG-1 encounters a civilization entirely maintained within a bio-dome while their subconscious minds are kept alive in a virtual reality world.Beneath the Surface - The team discovers that a civilization living with a protective dome in order to survive an ice age is using a slave labor force beneath their city.Frozen - SG-1 returns to Antarctica to a bio-dome maintained for several scientists who have just made a startling discovery -- an Ancient female encased in ice.Revisions - SG-1 arrives on a planet plagued by toxic gasses but discovers a thriving populace within a shrinking bio-dome.
Big Eater: Bud and Doyle. Black Comedy Rape: When the two try to make out with the two female scientists in their sleep without their consent before getting thrown out. This sequence is Played for Laughs. Butt-Monkey: Faulkner and the scientists become this when Bud and Doyle start annoying and harassing them with their goofy antics. But Not Too Bi: Bud and Doyle are supposedly bisexual, even though they never hit on any male character save for a brief moment with each other. Which would be assuming that they weren't going for cheap laughs. Chaotic Stupid: Guess who. The Ditz: Both of the main characters. Disappeared Dad:Mimi Simkins: Where did you come from Doyle: My mom and the authorities are still trying to figure that out. Earth Song: Tenacious D cameos as musicians singing a tree-hugging song at an Earth Day environmentalist rally. Erotic Eating: The way Petra eats a carrot in front of Bud.Bud: What's up, Doc Flashback Cut: The scene mentioned in Hilariously Abusive Childhood below. \"Friends\" Rent Control: The two leads have a relatively nice home despite being incredibly stupid and not shown to have any jobs at all. Then again, this could be a case of living with Doyle's mother, who's seen throughout the movie. Green Aesop: A relatively subtle and intelligent one. Hero Antagonist: Dr. Faulkner only wants to preserve the stability of the project that the two leads keep messing up. Heroes Want Redheads: Bud and Doyle try hitting on Petra. Here We Go Again!: After spending a whole year inside the bio-dome, Bud and Doyle reconcile with Monique and Jen and drive off. When Doyle once again needs to use the bathroom, the four drive into a nuclear power plant. Hilariously Abusive Childhood: In one flashback, Doyle's mom is seen drowning Bud to teach them how to hold their breath for several minutes at a time. Assuming she did the same thing to Doyle, it may explain why why they're both so immature as adults. Idiot Houdini: Both Bud and Doyle. Jerkass: Again, Bud and Doyle being a duo of Insufferable Imbeciles. This seems to follow Bud and Doyle wherever they go, for none of their transgressions against anyone are brought to any justice. Monique's stepdad. Laser-Guided Karma: Both Bud and Doyle are kicked out and forced to stay in the desert section in the Biodome when they sneak inside a room full of snacks and other foods that have been confiscated by the scientists. Loud of War: Subverted when the police try to get the protagonists out of the dome by blasting Men Without Hats' \"The Safety Dance\". It doesn't work; it just means they have a rhythm as they fix the place up. In a Shout-Out to the music video, it also causes a dancing dwarf to suddenly show up. The '90s: Embarrassingly so. The fashion, the \"loveable stoner slacker\", the attitude towards women, the Totally Radical dialogue... Poor, Predictable Rock: Doyle always uses rock when doing rock-paper-scissors with Bud, causing him to lose. It's even in their first scene together. Protagonist-Centered Morality: They break into the bio-dome, mess about with the scientist attempts at research, destroy the bio-dome itself and with it any attempt at gaining scientific insight by letting others inside after being told they couldn't leave for just such a reason, the sexual abuse of the two female scientists...and we're supposed to root for them because they feel bad about it. Psychopathic Manchild: Bud and Doyle are grown men, but have all the maturity and self-control of undisciplined eight-year-olds. Random Events Plot: Takes up most of the movie, which pretty much stems from entering the Biodome onwards. Ripped from the Headlines: The film is heavily inspired by the Biosphere 2, a facility in Arizona intended to test the ability for a small crew of people to be completely self-sufficient for for a span of two years. The experiments at the facility in the early 90's were notoriously troubled; the only full experiment conducted there saw the failure of multiple self-sustaining projects and the division of the crew of eight into two warring factions. Sanity Slippage: Faulkner even grows a beard to show this happened to him after going missing. Shout-Out: Kylie Minogue's character is named after the film The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. Stoner Flick Swallow the Key: Doyle does this, swallowing the key to the biodome in order to keep the project going. Totally Radical: The main characters, again. After all, this is set in The '90s, but even for that time period this movie is way over the top and unbelievable. Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: Bud and Doyle are both immature, selfish, and impulsive. Very Loosely Based on a True Story: Several experiments were done with self sustained ecologies, including one in Arizona called Biosphere 2, but that's about it. Who Would Be Stupid Enough: Dr. Leaky does this trope upon finding out that Bud and Doyle snuck into the Bio-Dome, thinking that it was a mall with a bathroom.Dr. Leaky: Who would be stupid enough to think Bio-Dome was a mall Dr. Faulkner: (bringing up the boys' records by fax machine) Bud MacIntosh and Doyle Johnson. That's who. Why Don't You Just Shoot Him: Eventually Faulkner does try to kill them. 59ce067264
