    Gaaah! I honor you for typing that painful sentence out. I would have "cheated" and picked the next one, probably something like "I want to have sex with you, but they'll mark my noggin and I'll be in trouble." Something like that. ;)

      They didn't mark her noggin, they marked her bosom. At least get the facts right!

        i've got you all beat...'cept for maybe AR's.

        There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

          Hey, I never read it, and after reading that sentence, I'm glad I never did!

                It is worth recalling that when colonel Wools-Sampson 'The incomparable intelligence officer and fighting scout', was told of Haig's appointment as column commander he remarked: "He's quite all right but he's too - cautious: He'll be so fixed on not giving the Boers a chance, he'll never give himself one".

                  So,

                  "Czechoslovakia was a geopolitical spear at Germany's back that really concerned him"

                  Moral Combat - Michael Burleigh

                  "Welcome,' said Hagrid, "to Diagon Alley"


                  Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

                  "And even underage wizards are allowed to use magic if it's a real"


                  Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets



                  Not started the J.K. Rowling books yet but look forward to them. I really loved the movies.

                    Books 1-3 were okay, book 4 was decent. Books 5 and 6 sucked, and 7 sucked miserably aside from the grand melee at the last 100 pages or so of the book. The movies all sucked horribly

                      Oh, you're going to Love this one...

                      "I had firmly made up my mind that, while sex might not be the be all and end all, I did want to marry and it had to be a man who made me eager to go to bed early."

                        It's a good thing she said "go to bed early" and not "go to sleep early". If her husband is making her want to do the latter, I think she might have made a bad judgment call somewhere along the line

                          Maybe I'm much more easily entertained? I enjoyed all the movies a great deal. They make me smile and feel like I'm little again. In fact I still like Peter Pan and have read it many times.

                          I think this quality in me will be handy when I have a family of my own which I very much look forward to. I got the girl for it!

                          I'm pretty good at just switching off for entertainment quality movies and books. If it's not meant for me to learn anything I try not to read into it too much. Except for WWII movies, they better be accurate or I get annoyed! Oh and Sci-Fi movies based on older ones. Transformers and GI-Joe as examples annoyed me. The latest Star Trek, one of the best of all the films.
