  1. I must be in the minority, because I don't like Planes, Trains and Automobiles. But then I think most of Steve Martin's movies suck, and I think John Candy is overrated.
  2. Yeah, I don't get the fascination with diamonds. The diamond industry clearly have brainwashed the American public into thinking it has to be a diamond. I got my wife a ruby engagement ring. It's much harder to find good rubies.
  3. I remember I went with my girlfriend to see Stand By Me when it came out. When I was watching it, I thought that I'd seen the movie before because it seemed so familiar. What I didn't realize at the time was that it was a movie of the novella "The Body" by Stephen King that I had read. I was impressed with how closely it followed the book.
  4. You're correct LSF is a woman. I suppose you could have not commented at all then.
  5. Except you still did the fishing, and presented him with it, he just had to clean it. If that was your intent you should have left off the link.
  6. You know it would have been less work to just type 5 years.
  7. If you're crying about the dog in Futurama and Marley and Me, don't watch Hachi. The end of Mr. Roberts.
  8. JusI saw this, but what caught my attention was that we've become so specialized as a society that someone actually has the title of Professor of Aviation Security. How do you get a Ph.D in that?
  9. Shall we play a game?
  10. Spiked vests, new fencing latest tools to protect pets from coyotes For Penny Sprague, the wake-up call arrived last summer. “I have a 7-pound dog and had a coyote lying in my next-door neighbor’s yard early one morning,” the San Pedro homeowner said. “I was adamant about doing something.” So she purchased a spiked coyote “vest” for her pup and installed what’s known as a coyote roller — a round, metal spinning bar — along the top of her fence. So far, so good. Click on the link for the full article
  11. A Man Went On A Racist Tirade Because A Guy Talked To His Puerto Rican Mom In Spanish A man went on a racist tirade in an airport in Reno, Nevada, last week after he overheard another traveler talking to his mother over the phone in Spanish. In a video that has since gone viral, the man, identified only as "Mike," yells profanities and racial slurs in the airport terminal for more than eight minutes, repeatedly calling the Spanish-speaking traveler a "spic," a "mother****er," and a "piece of ****." "Learn how to ****ing speak English," he shouts. "We live in America." "But I'm speaking to my mother in Spanish because that's her language," replies the other man, Hector Torres, who recorded the video. "I don't give a ****, shut up!" the man responds. "SHUT UP!" Torres, a 44-year-old father of four from Orlando, Florida, told BuzzFeed News that the unnerving encounter began Thursday evening, as he was speaking on the phone to his mother while waiting to board a flight to Los Angeles. While on the call, Torres said, he heard someone behind him say, "Can you believe this ****?" "I'm chatting away with my mom, quietly, not trying to have all kinds of volume at the airport," Torres said. "And I'm like, I hope it wasn't directed at me." Torres said he tried to ignore the comments, which were loud enough for most people at the terminal to hear. But when he heard the man say, over his shoulder, "Trump is going to fix this. He doesn't understand this is Trump's America now," he decided to get off the phone. "At that point, I hadn't turned around and I just told her, 'Mami, I have to handle this. I'll call you back,'" Torres said. "I can't let something like this just fly by." Click on the link for the full article
  12. White supremacist converts to Islam — then kills neo-Nazi pals for disrespecting his new faith: police The Tampa Bay Times reports that 18-year-old Devon Arthurs is being accused by police of gunning down two of his roommates — 22-year-old Jeremy Himmelman and 18-year-old Andrew Oneschuk — after they attacked his newfound Muslim faith. According to police, Arthurs was upset at Islamophobia and decided to murder his two roommates “to bring attention to his cause.” Prior to converting to Islam, Arthurs was a committed white supremacist, as were his two slain roommates. Police say that, after killing his two roommates, Arthurs went into a nearby smoke shop in Tampa Palms, where he took three hostages and threatened to kill them. After police arrived on the scene, they convinced him to release the hostages and turn himself in. “I had to do it,” he said, according to police. “This wouldn’t have had to happen if your country didn’t bomb my country.” Click the link for the full article
  13. They're race car drivers, you'd think they could afford something better than Taco Bell. Hell, dog**** is better than Taco Bell.
