re: LNST - the “what was your college gpa” edition - MDB
2.95+ at LSU. As a Marine, Vietnam vet I took Riflery my last semester to put me over the 3.0 mark. Aced all the tests and was the best shot in the class (of course) but I forgot to actually go to class and old Ms. Norckauer took exception to this and gave me a C! ...

re: The 60s and 70s seem to be when the downturn began - MDB
You can always find turning points because that is what life is all about. Change. I was born in 1950 and two of the bigger turning points I’ve seen were when education-integration failed to lift minorities and instead brought down overall standards, and the removal of God from schools and thus ...

re: Say it Aint So! RIP Fred Ward (Earl from Tremors) ! - MDB
Uncanny how all the actors cast in The Right Stuff so closely resembled the original Mercury 7 astronauts. Most notably — Ed Harris = John Glenn Fred Ward = Gus Grissom Scott Glenn = Alan Shepard Dennis Quaid = Gordo Cooper Lance Henriksen = Wally Schirra Sam Shepard made a great Chuck...

re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 1 Discussion. Spoilers Included - MDB
Just scanned the pilot “The Cage” and then the two-part “The Menagerie” that was a flashback or sorts. Pike did not die from the radiation exposure 10 years in the future. He was brought back to Talos 4 and the home of the brainiac illusionists and the hot young Susan Oliver. I wonder if th...

Or was it in a flashback episode The Menagerie when Spock is on trial for Pikes return to the planet. Memory a little foggy but all good episodes. And Pike does not die on camera. ...

re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 1 Discussion. Spoilers Included - MDB
If I recall, in The Cage — the two-episode pilot for TOS — Pike does not die. Pike just gets blasted and fricked up pretty bad but survives only to be sent back to that brainiac race where he rejoins the equally messed up blonde love interest. Then the pilot was enough of a hit and they had to co...

re: Saving Private Ryan: Great movie, but terrible storyline - MDB
There are 58,000 or so names on the Vietnam Wall. About 47,000 or so we’re actual combat deaths. There were a lot of truck wrecks, mechanical chopper crashes, illness deaths, homicides, etc. just like a lot of wars. Also, keep in mind that only 10 percent of participants in a war actually see co...

Yep. Happened to me early this week. Sony A80J update. Extensive one. Some apps didn’t work afterward. Read a little and found the reset suggestion. Worked perfect. Up and running better than ever. ...

re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 1 Discussion. Spoilers Included - MDB
Better than expected. The woke cast doesn’t cop attitudes and preach. All, surprisingly, likeable. Well written and light. Will watch more. The new Spock growing on me but Anson Moint needs to somehow rediscover his Southern accent from Hell on a Wheels. Lol ...
