re: campiest movie you've seen? - Ace Midnight
For anything like a big budget film - [i]Rocky Horror Picture Show, Flash Gordon[/i] and [i]Ice Pirates[/i] have to be at the top. As an honorable mention, Mel Brooks movies have an element of camp that works very well, too. Plenty of "B" movies are campy, either by design or a consequence of ...

[quote]Do you really think they made that much money? They probably made a 25-50% markup along with all of their time invested in waiting in lines, gathering, listing it on a site, dealing with payment, and dealing with shipping.

[quote]Back to your comment about blacks (slaves, in particular) being viewed as something less than human. This view was accepted nationwide, going back to the Articles of Confederation in the 1770s or '80s. When assigning delegates by population to represent the 13 states (and for federal taxation...

[quote]Did they never bring up Joffrey being behind Bran's attempted assassination on the show?

re: HOC s3 better or worse relative to s1 and s2? ** No Spoilers Please** - Ace Midnight
I'm not pro or against HoC - I recognize that seasons drop all at once, but do we need to spam the whole front page with HoC episode threads? I mean, I'm a GoT Maester (recent promotion), and we sometimes have 3 threads up - one for Maesters, one for Hodors and another for Hodors that they inexpl...
