The worst thing about Obama's ego (and politics in general) is that he can't simply admit "I was wrong. Romney was right."
Right now, we just need a president who's willing to give two shits about foreign policy, start some serious financial sanctions on Russian oligarchs, and bolster our allie...

Thought of a couple in college football:
Nebraska: 348 consecutive weeks in the AP Top 25 (1981-2002)
The closest are Florida State and Florida with 211 and 209, respectively, from approx. 1989-2002. Alabama currently only has about 16 years to go.
Also, Florida State's streak of 14 conse...

I'll go with a couple that are never mentioned:
John Stockton - 15,806 career assists
John Stockton - 3,265 career steals
No one at present has a realistic shot at breaking those marks, and only Magic could have challenged the assist mark if he had played another 6 or 7 seasons....

Crimes and Misdemeanors is definitely my favorite Woody drama. It's just brilliant.
For the comedies, I'd have a tough time picking between Love and Death, Annie Hall, and Mighty Aphrodite. Several of the other comedies have their moments, as well.
Take, for instance, the opening of Bananas:...

It's all about how you plan ahead for your career. If you major in the humanities just for fun, without a clear idea about your career goals and ambitions, you'll fail.
