Spin off thread - Let's discuss the star and average rating systems for movies - Methuselah
This question was inspired by some conversation in the Avenger AoU rating thread but it goes far beyond that so I figured it might be a good topic for a stand along thread: Do you consider a 2 out of 4 star, a 2 1/2 out of 5 star and a 5 out of 10 average rating (or star rating if there are any ...

Give me some advice on buying a new 42-46 inch t.v. - Methuselah
My old workhorse tv in the living room is finally on it's last legs after about a 20 year run. (that thing weighs about a ton but it's been a great t.v.) The limiting dimension is really the width - a 40 inch absolute limit (though really anything much above 38 inch will be cutting it close. So ...

Some of mine: 1- Born Free 2- Homeward Bound 3- Babe 4- The Ghost and the Darkness 5- Free Willy Full disclosure - movies like Old Yeller and The Black Stallion should probably be somewhere on the list but it's been so long since I've seen them I don't remember that much about them. ...

Is there a soldier's paradox -thinking about home while deployed and vice versa - Methuselah
In reading up on some stuff on Appomattox yesterday I came across a section on how veterans from both sides formed many Veterans groups. It made me think - from everything I've seen and read (I've never served) it seems like while in combat situations, soldier's long for home and loved ones and a...

Anybody ever go on any major cross country road trips to see the U.S.? - Methuselah
Furthest I ever went was here (La.) to Aspen and that was mostly a straight through trip. (We were in a Suburban and had like 6 people who could drive) and a good chunk of the trip was at night. So it wasn't a real "experience Americana" type of trip. Anybody got any good stories or just reflect...

Military thread - let's talk Fougasse, land torpedoes, line mines and IED's - Methuselah
These have a long history, from the Chinese opposing the Mongols, to the Confederates against the Union forces, to the Russians in the Crimea to the Vietnamese to groups we've been fighting in Iraq. In most cases it seems like these devices are employed by the side fighting against a more numer...

Hmm. Maybe it is Ginger and not Mary Ann after all. - Methuselah
I've always been with those who go Mary Ann over Ginger but stumbled across this old publicity photo and I'm kinda re-thinking that. [img]http://i398.photobucket.com/albums/pp66/Methuselah99/Mobile%20Uploads/slice_gilligans_island_cast_01.jpg[/img]...

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...

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...

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 ...
