Reminds me of a beautiful line I once heard: "I'm not a complete idiot, I'm only a half-wit!" (Big points for getting the reference.) I'm going to take a wild guess... The Tenth Kingdom? That guy who was in charge of the wishing well? A winner is you! I wondered if anyone else around here had seen ...

Or was that, "in the land of the witless, the half wit is king"? :lol: Reminds me of a beautiful line I once heard: "I'm not a complete idiot, I'm only a half-wit!"

I'm guessing the next weapon of choice will now be a cricket paddle (since they won't use baseball bats).

I can see it now: OMG TEH BAD GUYS ARE KILLING PEOPLE WITH CRICKET PADDLES!!!!1111

Yeah, that'll go over well. :shifty:

They picked up the cattle in Shindig then dropped them off at the beginning of Safe. A little bit of trivia about that: In the "cargo hold come cattle barn" scenes, the cows were all CGI. The reason for this is because the crew couldn't swing the cleanup, and the cows wouldn't walk on the set's gra...

That. Is. Sick.

Did they OD on stupid pills? What are they going to do once strangulations and bludgeonings skyrocket? Ban the sale of pantyhose, scarves, and candlesticks?

I watched the news earlier tonight with dismay... as I've said in other threads, I'm praying that my flight isn't affected by this recent situation. What I've heard is that it's restrictions on fluids (beverages, gels, lotions, etc.) and obvious remotes (car openers were mentioned). I don't know ju...

and now for the chase which will probably lead into the woods maybe all the way back to the ship or something.
Either that, or we get to see Quentyn use some nifty lux tricks to scare the villagers off.

<long, drawn-out sigh> In the first place, thanks, love, but we already are profiling anyone that fits the stereotypical appearance of a Muslim male. Anyone heavily bearded tends to get a very thorough going-over from the TSA already, whether they're white, brown or black. The biggest problems with...

I voted yes, but ONLY on this condition: I get strong, secure cages. I'm kind of surprised this hasn't been asked before (or maybe it has and I wasn't there for it). I think it'd be fun to have tulpas. It certainly would help keep track of my "sides" better! I think my tulpas would probably look som...

Thanks, everyone so far. I watched the news earlier tonight with dismay...as I've said in other threads, I'm praying that my flight isn't affected by this recent situation.

Of course, I'm praying that the all-around panic (especially the airports') dies down before I leave next week, or I'm going to have a very unpleasant first out-of-country experience. I'm seriously considering leaving my laptop at home if I can't have it as a carry-on, although since I'm doing compu...

When I first heard about this (on the news, actually, mentioned in a story on viral videos), I was thinking a couple drunk college guys doing something stupid to procrastinate their homework. When I actually saw it, though... Whoa. That's....cool. Though I wince at how sticky absolutely EVERYTHING (...

In a week-and-a-half, I'm going to be leaving the US until October. I'm going to Bangladesh to help my future in-laws and their team at the Malumghat hospital by teaching computer classes and doing computer work (e.g. making PowerPoint presentations) for them. For those of you who have traveled outs...

I believe he has his face set to "Placate and Appease" which is usually followed by a Ritual Purchase of Flowers and Other Gifts.
