If you were truly immortal, how would you pass the time? - Methuselah
Going either the sci-fi/fantasy route and you somehow were altered so that you would literally live forever. Or (if it can be done without too much side-tracking) going the religion route and you were going to live forever and heaven was whatever you wanted to do. What things would you do to pas...

Are screen names less common today - and your favorite sn/real name combo? - Methuselah
Seems like back in the day, screen names were more common - John Wayne (Marion Morrison), Marylin Monroe (Norma Jean Mortenson), Rock Hudson (Leroy Harold Scherer, Jr.), Cary Grant (Archibald Alexander Leach), etc. It kind of seems the use of real names is increasing lately though. Best I can te...

Non WWII/CW military thread-did Napoleon or Alexander have better generals? - Methuselah
Trying to keep these threads going. Who had the better supporting cast, Napoleon Bonaparte or Alexander the Great? It's kind of a difficult question because I don't think there is even much of a consensus as to who were the best generals of each of them. But to pick a few for each, let's go wi...

Baseball gurus - explain to me how designating a winning pitcher works. - Methuselah
I was trying to figure out who would be designated as the winning pitcher in last night's game. I checked and it is Poche. What's the formula? I thought it was who was the pitcher when the winning team scored one more run than the losing team ended up with. But since LSU scored their 5th run i...

Calling all OT Historians/Military junkies - The Penobscot Expedition - Methuselah
I just got finished reading he book [i]The Fort[/i] by Cornwell. It's a historical fiction piece about the Penobscot Expedition in the Revolutionary war and how it was a pretty huge disaster for Massachusetts, and the rest of the rebels/patriots. So, those of you familiar with this expedition, w...

Enemy Mine or The Last Starfighter - which do you prefer? - Methuselah
It's kind of strange that I always group these two movies together in my head. Other than the fact that they both deal with space and they both feature a reptilan/humanoid character, they are really quite different movies. I think Enemy Mine is the more serious movie. Plus it has one of my favo...

Anybody here follow "Welcome to Nightvale"? - Methuselah
I'm not a regular follower but my daughter follows it and I went to a live showing in New Orleans with her about a year or so ago. I actually enjoyed it. Pretty clever writing. But I don't know if I could put the time in to be a regular listener The [link=(http://youtu.be/Ujksjzqrhys)]Pilot ...

What detective would you go with - Colombo, Monk or Shawn (from Psych)? - Methuselah
You need a detective to solve a murder. Who do you choose? Columbo - Had some great deductive reasoning and Q & A but his method pretty much relied on suspects stupidly talking to him when they should have just said no comment. Monk - Used a bit more observational method along with a little q...

Rank the most influential Founding Fathers in your view - Methuselah
I'm thinking mostly along the lines of things like: Were they in it from the beginning? Did they play a part in the War itself? Did they play a part in the early government(s)? Did they generally contribute to the survival of the young country? Not looking for whether one or the other necessaril...

What sets apart revolutions that work from those that don't? - Methuselah
Watching the [i]Sons of Liberty[/i] last week, got me thinking. (Yeah, I know they took some, er, liberties with the facts). But thing that got me thinking was that most revolutions must be incredible long shots when they start. After all, the entrenched side has a decided advantage in power (...

Are Tigers like OBJ and Mett the new style setters in the NFL? - Methuselah
Beckham with his hair style and Mettenberger with his coat of many colors seem to be ahead of the game. [img]http://i398.photobucket.com/albums/pp66/Methuselah99/Mobile%20Uploads/images.jpeg[/img] [img]http://i398.photobucket.com/albums/pp66/Methuselah99/Mobile%20Uploads/B2rdw3sCEAECDeg.jpg[...

Which of these "military actions" had the least chance of succeeding at first? - Methuselah
Of course we know now which succeeded and which failed. But in your opinion, which were the biggest underdogs when they started? You can even give odds if you want. I put my definition of "victory" with each but feel free to state your own if you disagree with mine. Spartus' revolt against Rome ...

Who would you say is the most used villain in film, television, books & comics - Methuselah
Outside of the devil/Satan characters and maybe Dracula, I'd say Morgan Le Fey might be pretty high up there. Mostly in Arthurian stuff but sometimes (like last week's The Librarian which prompted this thought) it is as a stand alone villain, sometimes one who has survived to modern times....

How important is the "college" part of college football to you? - Methuselah
All the recruiting, early departing, rumors of money and assorted other "scandals", etc. got me wondering: Is the actual college that your favorite team plays for the deciding factor for you? Would you cheer just as passionately if it was the exact same team but was more of a "club" structur...

Looking for some info on LSU Graduate school in Library Science - Methuselah
Anybody got any experience with this? My daughter is looking to apply. How competitive is it to get in? I understand it's a pretty small program as far as numbers are concerned. Is a very good GPA and good references enough or do you have to ace the GRE also? Any other info about the prog...
