Effective at 10 AM tomorrow morning, I will be self-imposing an 8-week ban upon myself. Back in August I made some random commitment to this thing called the U.S. Navy. You guys ever heard of it? Anyways...I'm flying out on April 10 to Great Lakes, IL to participate in this 8-week work out progra...

| Political Talk|| Could a father not marry his son to avoid an inheritance tax? - RollTide1987 on 4/8/13 at 10:20 am|
The actor Jeremy Irons, who is surprisingly somewhat conservative on the issue of gay marriage, brought up an interesting point last week.
Gay marriage opens up the flood gates when it comes to tax evasion. We have incest laws but you can't have incest between two men because they can't breed....

Fears are beginning to grow that North Korea just might make a move of some kind on April 10 as they have told all of the embassies to evacuate their staffs by that date, and have likewise told South Korean factory workers employed in the North to leave by April 10.

Yes…before he was gay, he was straight. He dated Mary Austin all throughout the 1970s until Mercury came out of the closet to her. Despite coming out as a homosexual/bi-sexual man, Mary Austin and Freddie Mercury remained close friends even after their ensuing break-up. She eventually married and...

Let's try to avoid discussions concerning theology and religion (probably impossible considering the topic) and just tell us all your favorite biblical epic. The one you find the best/most entertaining.
For me…I'd have to go with Jesus of Nazareth (1977). Franco Zeffirelli's TV miniseries is ...

When I was in elementary school I used to tell my friends that my great uncle was the bombardier of the B-29 that dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima.
In truth, my great uncle was a bombardier but he flew in B-17s over Germany. I don't think he ever once set foot on a Pacific island.

So I saw this movie. The first two acts are kind of "meh" but the third act really went out of its way to attempt to claim the title "Worst Movie Ending of All-Time." It failed to hit that mark but I think it came pretty close.
