    Yeah. But then you'd have to choose two people. Or raffle it off or something. I think the QA section had someone ask that and they said the winning bidder could bring only one other person with them. D'oh.

    Even so, if people did want to see how big they could get a pool up to, there's still ten days or so, so a lot of time left to check that out.

      Hello people! I've been hanging at out the Jack/Sam shipper family thread, but I thought I'd drop in over here. I think Sam is an awesome character and a great role model. She's strong, intelligent, beautiful, funny, sweet...basically what I wish I could be. I hope for more Sam for years to come!

              I was just watching the news bit on the 200th episode, looks exciting. Though when they said "intergalactic time travellers" I wondered if they had actually watched the show. Unless that's some sort of spoiler for 200.

                basically it was that, in a dream, teal'c saw that sam would be there at his death, and that it would be in battle. so he asked something horrible of her. and she agreed, of course believing that the day would never come to pass

                it did and how it ends is
                Spoiler:
                teal'c was fatally injured, wanted to die like his father did, with a crushed symbiote, and that's what he asked of her, to crush his symbiote and let him die...and she did. And jack and daniel didn't nkow about the promise at the time, so they're angry with sam until daniel remembers the night teal'c had the dream



                I know a lot of folks make sam as the 'weaker' emotional one...but i think she has a backbone of steel and the ability to do what the others might not be able to do.

                i've never considered sam the weak one of the group. she's been my hero since season 1.

                i've thought before of what would make sam snap and react to something before thinking it through. like, say, in the heat of battle, or seeing something so vile... i came up with an idea, very close to what amanda said about being able to kill, now that she's a mom.

                i think if sam saw jack, daniel, and teal'c being tortured horribly, she could easily act and kill the abusers to make it stop. BUT... i think if she saw something horrible happening to a child (cassie), she could kill in cold blood. i'm not really thinking planning the death, just her losing it for a moment and killing the monster.

                i think it's a side of all of us, just all of us have different buttons that have to be pushed to reach that dark place. i think sam's would be violence against a child.

                    Excellent post Sal, and I think you're 100% right, I think many people who consider themselves non violent could be pushed to kill in that situation, myself included.

                      I think I'd get violent, but I don't think I could kill. I can't defend myself, let alone someone else.

                          there is also the fact that there is no greater act of love than to let someone go.

                          now i'm not meaning to or wanting to start a discussion on euthanasia, but, having watched more than one person die, sometimes the greatest act of love is to let someone go

                            In the S/J Ship Family Discussion Thread there's a link by waterfall- post #28034 with a link for the shows 200th. That's on CTV.

                            If you can't access it there's another post by sueKay #28038.

                                I think it's great that Amanda and RDA can attract this kind of reaction from fans. I don't doubt it will be very close to 20K by the time the auction ends. We've heard of fans who have paid $10K to kiss RDA and fans who have paid $7500.00 to dine with Amanda, so I could totally see someone paying 20K to get a tour of the Stargate set and have lunch with RDA & Amanda. This is like a once in lifetime opportunity for any die-hard Stargate fan. Yes, it's event that only the richest of fans will ever experience, but it's still an amazing chance none the less. I really admire RDA and Amanda ( and the other actors who donated their time ) for doing this for the charity because it's obvious they are helping a great deal in raising awareness and money for a very good cause.

                                Honestly if didn't have two other trips already planned this year, I probably would have had a very difficult time not bidding for this chance. I know some see it as buying a moment with a celebrity, but I see it as a once in a lifetime opportunity. This may in fact be the last year for Stargate SG-1. This is a huge year for the franchise and just being allowed the opportunity to watch an episode being filmed would be thrilling in my opinion, so sitting down to chat with two of my favorite actors/characters for the past decade would just be the icing on the cake. I'm sure I'm not the only one who secretly wishes they were the winner.
