re: Would the Allies have won WWII without America getting involved? - Methuselah
[quote]And a protracted war could very well have allowed one or both sides to split the atom. and depopulate Europe.[/quote] This is the wild card. Would either side have come up with nukes without the US doing so if the war dragged on long enough? I'm not well read enough on the efforts of other...

re: How do TV shows get us rooting for bad people? - Methuselah
Well, pushing Bran out of the Window may have been expident. But that doesn't mean he wasn't a bad person for doing it. Heck, the danger to himself, Cersi, the kids and (purportedly) the realm, didn't stop him from shagging her every chance he got so I guess those things weren't even that importan...

re: What is your personal favorite album? - Methuselah
I think mine is [i]Silk Degrees[/i] by Boz Scaggs. I had that on cassette way back in the day when I did a lot of driving, including at night. Something about the way the songs built on one another set that one apart for me. (Strangely, when I updated to CD it wasn't the same - I'm not sure but i...

re: Conway Twitty - Methuselah
[quote]Definitely a country music legend, but he was more pop country like Kenny Rogers and Glen Campbell. [/quote] I don't think you can really include Glenn Campell in that group. He was a major talent IMO, although somewhat unfulfilled. The other two I don't think had quite that level of tale...

[quote]If there's research backing that up, it's an interesting point, but it sounds like he's pulling that out of his arse and it seems like a reach. [/quote] Yeah. That definitely sounds like he's just assuming stuff. I haven't seen any studies on it either way. I'd think there would be hap...

College Soccer considers longer season split between fall and spring - Methuselah
Found this link on the LaPrep soccer board. Most comments I've come across seem to thing it's a good idea. Here is the [link=(http://thesoccerobserver.com/2014/07/20/college-soccer-looks-to-full-year-schedule-to-bolster-its-relevance/)]LINK[/link] to the story. But here's a [link=(http://www...

re: San Diego Comic-Con Mega-Thread: Updates and Discussion - Methuselah
Those Avengers posters look a heck of a lot like they will be drawing on the Ultron Unlimited storyline that Busiek and Perez did a few years ago. It would be great if they included the quote: C O M I C S P O I L E R "Ultron, we would have words with thee"....

re: Thoughts on AAU teams raising money - Methuselah
The thing about all these travel and select movements in sports like baseball and basketball is that I don't think they've improved the end product athletes in the U.S. over the days when there were things like Little League and biddy basketball.

Well, if I was stuck on a desert Island and I could only have 5 movies (and the means to watch them), I think I'd go: 1- Godfather; 2- Princess Bride; 3- Fellowship of the Ring 4- Airplane 5- Casablanca (in no particular order). Now if I could sneak a couple of mini-serieis in I'd put L...
