  1. When I was in high school, we had a substitute teacher, Mr. Parks. He had only one arm. His other arm was a stump that ended just above his elbow. He would walk the aisles in the classroom and check peoples work and lay his stump on people's shoulders or neck. When I knew he was teaching, I would find a seat in the left corner so that I wouldn't get the stump. I'm not sure if he did it on purpose. He was always nice to me.

  2. Candide-Voltaire

    The Brothers Karamazov-Fyodor Dostoevsky

    Cloudsplitter-Russell Banks

    The Magnificent Ambersons-Booth Tarkenton

    Running Out of Dog-Dennis Lehane (short story)

    It is so hard to pick just five. I'm in love with "Elvis Cole" in the Robert Crais novels. George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is the best fantasy series that I've ever read and believe me, I have read many fantasy novels.

  3. Brass in Pocket by the Pretenders. I used to dance for my boyfriend to that song while he watched through the window of my bedroom. We were young and it was a funny, silly game. A couple months later, that song was playing at a party and my boyfriend smiled and gave me a big hug. The '80's were so much fun. :D

  4. Nathan and Manderlyrn, I agree with you both. This should never have happened, for many reasons. She can't possibly give each child the time and care that it needs with that many children. Then of course there is the money issue. She was clearly thinking of herself and not what kind of life that she was going to give these children. But, now it is too late. The children are in this world. Maybe, adoption? I don't know. This brings me to Charles Murray. We live in a democracy. Once you start taking away people's right to reproduce then you are a slippery slope to total government control. I don't like and agree with a lot things people do, including this mom but I realize that these things happen when you live in the United States. Also, I took exception to Murray's statement because it was irrational. I know rich people who are shitty parents. Money didn't help their children have a better life. Implementing reproduction control would send this country into a frenzy by creating a class war. It's not going to happen of course. I'm not worried about losing reproduction rights if it sounds that way. I was already irritated by a person who told me recently that people have too much freedom in this country. My answer? Go buy an island and implement your own government.

    I'm happy that I live where I do. It is not perfect but I don't complain because it could be much worse.

  5. Yes...there are so many things in that story (or any of the stories I've read/seen about here) that piss me off.

    That story pissed me off too.

    Especially, this quote: "It's my opinion that a woman's right to reproduce should be limited to a number which the parents can pay for," Charles Murray wrote in a letter to the Los Angeles Daily News. "Why should my wife and I, as taxpayers, pay child support for 14 Suleman kids?"

    Maybe Charles Murray's parents should've had second thoughts before they reproduced. <_<

  6. You should have waited so that you could have included the next post. I'm sure Robert's quaking in his snakeskin boots at the thought of a boycott. :rolleyes:

    As the it was printing, the next post popped up, so I wrote it on the bottom of the page. :)

    I didn't take the posts and pic as mean-spirited, just all in good fun. I don't find meaness or whining about Robert funny.

  7. I got a Wikipedia entry.

    Cynthia is a personal name of Greek origin (Κυνθία, Kynthía) meaning "from Mount Cynthus" on Delos island. It can be abbreviated as Cindy.

    Cynthia was originally an epithet of the Greek goddess of the moon, Artemis, who was sometimes called "Cynthia" because, according to legend, the goddess was born on Mount Cynthus.

    Wow, I feel special. :D

  8. :hysterical: Omg, you guys, this is a classic. I just printed a copy of the pic and the replies and pinned it up on the board next to my computer. Thanks for the best laugh that I've had in a long time.

  9. Now, the press release is being reinterpreted? Will the madness ever stop?

    "After those dates, Robert has no intention whatsoever of touring with anyone for at least the next two years" -Plant's website

  10. I have my internet back. :cheer: My Belkin wireless went crazy. I had to call tech support who were very helpful (another thing to be happy about) and give the wireless some new commands. It better mind me from now on or I'm going to take it out to the driveway and run over it with the car. :)

  11. former Pentecostal pastor sentenced to prison recently for fleecing his Colorado congregation

    I saw this on Google and was mildly curious. I lost interest when I found something about a different person, a guy who gets in fist fights with members of his congregation. :o:D

  12. TV- I love Dot on "Eastenders" and Sheldon on "The Big Bang Theory." I have to agree with Spats re: Heath Ledger's Joker- really really weird and gets under your skin.

    I forgot-- that new show "Fringe" is awesome, and the old scientist character the FBI sprang from the loony bin to help with their bizarre cases is really a great actor, IMO.

    I love "Fringe". Walter is what kept me watching in the first episodes. Now I'm hooked. John Noble is a great actor. He also played Denethor in LOTR:Return of the King.

    In Movies, I loved John Candy's character in "Uncle Buck", he was really funny, sweet and tough, all at the same time.

    Also, Liked Steve Buscemi's character in "Con Air". Creepy, you just didn't know what was going to happen next, well played by Buscemi. It gave an otherwise bland movie, some edge.

  13. black sabbeth ozzy made his dad make the crosses to where to put around there necks beacuse the devil worshipers witches occolts would wonna have them play for them privet thay thought sabbeth would be down thay did not play for them thay got threts of curses and other shit throwen to the band thay are not evil thay are like a horror movie but in music form spells and other shit would be aimed to the band thats for sabbeth ... ACDC were just ozzy rock band that would play pubs drink a lot party then got famous thay dont hide thay say hells bells thay sing what the rock

    people wonna listen to now LED ZEPPELIN its hidden more darker more true more real i hope you get what i am saying a killer does not kill when the sun is out and people are out to see thay do it when you least expect it in the dark hidden there are more secret meenins more hidden messiges than you think if you under stand the music you will know what i am saying you listen but you really dont listen maybe dont understand the menings of a sertin frase or verse in a song the freemasons are a secret with secret rituals you know the masons are there you know ther bilding you see them you can talk to them but thay have there secret and who are wee nobody its a secret only if you listen to it propley you can see the spirits love ZEPPELIN acdc no sabbath no sabbeth and acdc are for the human race to reconise that thay say devil it is devil satan it is satan but zeppelin are more true


    I understand what you are saying. Some bands wear the devils tag for show, its a gimmick but they don't practice it in private.

    As for listening, I have heard things while listening to Zeppelin but nothing devilish. The odd thing is that its always happened when I least expected it, caught me off guard. I have been curious to why this only happens when I'm listening to Zeppelin but I don't worry about. Not everything can be explained so there's no sense in obsessively mulling over it.

  14. Robert Plant

    Stops Being Polite,

    "I'm Not Such An Old Hippie"

    By Charles M. Young

    Musician June 1990

    Three years off cigarettes, a few weeks off caffeine, four hours off the Concorde from London, Robert Plant settles down in a tightly packed armchair in his New York hotel suite with only a pot of room service decaf to stimulate the interview process.

    "I just lost a tooth," he says, fingering a well-capped incisor, the bags under his eyes radiating the imminent onset of jet lag. "I bit on an Indonesian meatball and it cracked-the tooth, not the meatball-and it didn't actually fall out until I was doing this live interview on television in Amsterdam. Did you ever try to talk while holding a tooth in with the tip of your tongue? I sounded like one of the Goons from the BBC. Then we mimed a song and I wore these black gloves that I waved mysteriously in front of my mouth. Made it even more deep and meaningless. Made it peculiar, deep and meaningless. I always thought I'd lose it to some young lady delivering a fast uppercut, which happened once. Who would have guessed an Indonesian meatball? Ah well, it's only right that people who have been around as long as I have should occasionally fall apart a little bit".


    I've edited my original post to retract this having happened at Nirvana...it happened

    while promoting Manic Nirvana :)

    You guys are right, this is interesting. I would like to know the Who, What, When and Where of this incident. :)
