Does anyone here know how to get ahold of moderators from RS?  We have a big problem over there today.

???

Why would you come here to try to contact RS mod?  I'm not so sure that the "we" you are talking about includes most of the community here.  In fact, there's probably a good number here who delight in RS's problems.

It has gone up about a penny a day here from $2.90 now to $3.05 here in New England.  I heard on the news that the Hurricane SEASON is causing prices to rise.  Remind me again- what crucial-to-oil area was hit by a major hurricane this year?

Smoke and mirrors, and fat cats get fatter.

I think there are two important factors to consider in "Prada" nearing Superman this weekend.

First, due to the demand for "Pirates," the number of screens were increased, and it was likely at the expense of screens showing "Superman."  Combined with the long running time for "Superman," it translates to less tickets available to sell.

Second, "Prada" was an excellent example of counter-programming strategy.  It went for a completely different audience from the other summer "event" pictures.  Every year there is one romantic comedy chick-flickish film that pulls this off.

As long as it doesn't feel like I am waiting for the movie to end, the length doesn't bother me.  I actually hate when a movie seems to end too soon in order to fit into a "time frame" for ticket sales.  RotS is an excellent example of this.

I think that both King Kong and PotC could have been edited to be a bit shorter.  Supes flew by for me.

I understand that.  What I meant is that he seemed to go up after Lois rescued him and "stored up" some extra power to lift out the continent.

Also, I noticed some subtle things in it that seemed to hint at what they think about some of the talk in society from some people that they don't need God a part of people's lives.  I thought with how this movie says how the world needed Superman, and and what seemed like several times hints at how mankind needs to have a Savior to look forward to, really was hitting at something deep inside what makes people who we are, and really liked that

There was a strong Christ allegory in the film, topped off with Supes falling, arms spread after getting rid of the continent.

I loved the film.  Routh was perfect, Spacey was fantastic (Parker Posey too!) and I thought Bosworth did a fine job as well.  The nods to the original films were great.   I had goosebumps during the open and also just before the credits.

Left wide open for a sequel- what did Kal-El find in his years in space and how did he get on that ship.

I liked the way Singer implied that Supes stores power from the sun like a battery.

Superman is my all-time favorite superhero film, and this one is right up there near the top.

I would love a line of Indy figures.  One of my cats is named Brody after Denholm Elliot's character.

My fiancee is on notice that no matter what breed we get, our first dog will be named Indiana, since that was the dog's name.

I'm bothered by racists myself, but oddly enough, I find that I've encountered more of them online than anywhere else I've ever lived.



That is because of the "safety" internet anonymity provides.  Most of these idiots are probably too cowardly to "be racist" in person.

I used to shave down with just clippers, but now I shave down with a razor in the shower.  Takes a few minutes, but it looks better.  I was going bald anyway, and this just looks better than those dudes that fight nature.

By all means give an explanation on how this works...

I think somewhere an Australian just **** his pants.

Now THAT was funny.  He'll be the next Bill Gates.

So let me make sure that I'm clear on this:

Daughter gave a false age
19 year old told her that he was on the Senior football team, so she thought he was . .what. . 17 0r 18 instead of 19.
Daughter still met with dude.


Oh yeah.  Definitely Myspace's fault.

Yup  :)

If you give a gun to a chimp (or 2 chimps), and the chimp shoots somebody, you don't blame the chimp.

I think a better way of putting it would be that you don't blame the gun manufacturer, you blame the person that provided the gun.

« on: April 17, 2006, 06:17 AM »

I'm in class right now and can't google it. . .but I'm hoping from what was promised on Seinfeld that they are real, and they are fabulous!

It's....

They're real.......and they're spectacular!

Regardless. . .a quick google when I got home revealed that they're real, but far less than spectacular.

Unfortunately, I thought you might feel that way.  Total letdown.

Also, the porn industry award is the Hot D'Or as evidenced by the post above.  Wouldn't it be funnier if it were the Hairy Palm D'Or?

I hear you on that.  I work for the schools now, and I can't believe how many hotties they have for teachers.  Truly leaps and bounds beyond the old ladies with tight polyester pants and big asses.  Blech!

FYI for all you Aurebesh geeks out there, the console on the Senate Pod reads: "SW Fans Rule"

A nice little nod from Hasbro


I'm surprised it didn't say "Star Wars fans are suckers!"
