re: The Last Samurai - MDB
Great movie. Watched it while flying over Japan and Pacific on the way home from a return trip to Vietnam in 2004. Bought the DVD, then Blu-ray to view again a few times at home. Oddly, I also watched Kill Bill 1 on flight back. ...

re: Warhorse is a solid family flick great for this time of year. - MDB
Very good movie. My advice is to crank up your sound system for the last one-third of the movie. It is reference quality sound. ...

Do some homework. Most argue now that Dinos were warm blooded. It’s debatable. ...

re: Any Black Friday TV deals? - MDB
Black Friday then Cyber Monday the pre-Christmas then after-Christmas then New Year’s then Super Bowl Sunday then ... Chances are that prices will come down again on “good” TVs. Only the crap models get marked way down right now. That said, the Sony X900H and x90CH models are at an all time l...

re: LSU chances vs the Aggies.... - MDB
We’ll play well for a half but if the Aggies up get more than 10 points up, this team will quit. Oh, I’m sorry, LSU won’t quit. They’ll opt out. ...

re: I've been living under a rock. What is opt out mean? And why? - MDB
Quitting becomes habit forming and the pros aren’t too fond of quitters. There’s a lot of kids who are going to have their dreams dashed and cut short. ...

re: Don't like it, but can't really blame a player/fan for wanting out of this season - MDB
I never thought I would say LSU is full of quitters but times are changing. How many players have quit on Bama and Florida and Notre Dame, etc.? But we do have a lot of Warriors. ...

re: Don't like it, but can't really blame a player/fan for wanting out of this season - MDB
I don’t care if we go back to 60s football and just play with the ones who want to. Let high school seniors go pro. Screw it. Ain’t worth the headaches anymore. ...

re: Scenes that make you laugh no matter how many times you see them - MDB
And let us not forget the clever scene in Django Unchained when the KKK members (led by Jonah Hill) keep whining about their masks because they can’t see or breathe. ...

re: Scenes that make you laugh no matter how many times you see them - MDB
Michael Cera being forced to sing “These Eyes” at a college party in Superbad. The scene just tickles me because you know he’s stuck and there’s no way out. And then the frat boys love it. As for the Vacation movies, anything with Cousin Eddie in it. ...

re: Do you think there will be some kind of wearable identifier for those who get the vaccine? - MDB
I’m a child of the 50s and still have a round scar on my upper left arm from the polio vaccine. I was marked. But won’t be again. ...

re: Is lying still considered a sin or "bad" at all these days? - MDB
A lot of good thoughts here, if they’re true. I too often catch myself telling someone in a manner of speaking “to be honest with you” and it bothers me. Does that tell the person I’m talking to that I haven’t always been honest with them? How can they trust me now that I am just saying that I’m...

re: Nats / Fruit Flies in House - MDB
Yes, bananas and some berries left out will provide a haven and a hatchery. Don’t leave fruit out. And thanks for tips about apple cider vinegar. Will try it on some pesky “drain flies” we have in bathroom. ...

re: Who here has had a total knee replacement? - MDB
Had my left knee replaced at age 61 in 2011 — right at 10 years ago. The surgery then was light years ahead of what my mom had done in the mid 90s and today it is much, much better than back in 2011. Higher tech, less invasive, better rehab. That said, it was a painful bitch of a surgery. Post-o...

re: Should you get up at 4 AM? - MDB
I worked late nights at the newspaper for some 30 years so being a night owl is my routine. Lucky if get to asleep by 1 a.m., yeah, I get up at 5 a.m. to pee and let the dog out. Back in the rack until 10 a.m. I’m retired so I DGAF. Now, one time I got up at 5 a.m. and promptly went to Mary...

Sorry, no pics, but she is gorgeous like her mom. By the way, she’s a little commie-lib living in L.A. now. She loves it. I need to do a DNA swab on her. ...

re: a near physical racial fight broke out at a SF school board meeting over merit admission - MDB
True story. My youngest daughter attended Tara High in BR, 9th-11th grade, where teachers said she was a shoo-in for valedictorian. Instead, we were able to get her into Baton Rouge Magnet for her senior year. She loved it. But a year later when she finished 18th in her graduating class, I norma...
