      Document Section   08/11/2016

      With the upgrade to the new server, we ran into problems with the software managing the document section.  While this is being remedied, the domain is redirected to the forums.

  1. SHREK TWO. Free post, everybody. Anyone with an idea can go now!
  2. *slaps forehead* I would have gotten the other quote that mentioned "homo sapiens" if I'd checked in. Darn.
  3. Those last 2 lines sound familiar, but that's all I have so far. The previous song, I'd never heard of it, let alone heard it.
  4. Usually I'm the last one to get media news because I'm no longer following it on the radio/television/newspapers like I used to-and even I knew about this from months ago. In fact, I thought I heard it from you among others, George!
  5. I have a LOT of M's AOS to catch up on. It goes in the mental pile with "Elementary", and the Marvel Netflix stories (Daredevil, Iron Fist, etc.)
  6. What's LMD? Vigilante's main job was to get people to wait for Adrian Chase to be revealed as Vigilante instead of as "Prometheus." It made sense for Vigilante to ask to cover up Detective Billy Malone's death, but not for Prometheus, so bad writing helped maintain his cover. Once Prometheus was unmasked, the writers either forgot about him or ran out of ideas for him. Right now, Rory Regan (Ragman) and Vigilante are both off the story radar, as is Roy Harper (Arsenal) and Ted Grant (Wildcat.)
  7. I'm waiting to hear who he is. Ralph Dibny was one of the people who was reported dead in the initial STAR Labs reactor event. Will this guy be someone else, was his death report a hoax, or did he tear himself free of his grave when his powers kicked in?
  8. Ok, closing out the rest of the round. George was correct about C being "The Patridge Family 2200 AD." Raf was correct about A being "Gilligan's Planet." The live-action show whose ensemble was sent into time was "The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang." Fonzie, Richie and his friends, and Fonzie's cute pet sidekick Mr Cool end up on a space/timeship. Fonzie's mojo can fix the damaged ship- and does- but then the pilot loses them in time. So, she's part of the cartoon's cast as well. Either of you takes the round.
  9. "Cherry picking", or "Counting the hits and ignoring the misses." When a person believes they will be successful, REALLY believes it, and they're a tremendous flop and a cipher, nobody hears about it and nobody cares. That happens A LOT. When a person believes they will be successful and is-or announces after becoming successful that it was because they "always believed they'd be", then it's counted as "proof" that believing does that. All the other people were "proof" it doesn't. Any guess how many people are supremely confident they will win this week's lottery and turn out not to win it? I bet there's a LOT more of them than people who hit it.
  10. What little I DID attend, I liked in spite of the keynote teachings. Really. I liked everything else we did, and the nightly things were all right. Then again, I stayed in an air-conditioned R/V, and don't know what was the appeal of a tent (still don't, to this day.) There was food available of different types, there were things going on of different types, different groups were teaching and entertaining, and a lot of it was off-the-cuff. I also liked people selling their own music tapes and so on. So, other than shopping at the bookstore, and the advantage of an air-conditioned auditorium building, it was an event I enjoyed in spite of the nightly spectacle. The other attendees were fun.
  11. " What about my Miranda rights? You're supposed to say, "You have the right to remain silent." Nobody said I have the right to remain silent!" "Donkey, you HAVE the right to remain silent. What you lack is the capacity." "Look, she's not seeing any clients today. Okay? "That's okay, buddy. We're from the union." "The union?" " Head 'em up, Head 'em up, Move 'em on, Move 'em on, Head 'em up, Rawhide! Line 'em up, Move 'em on, Head 'em up, Head 'em up, Move 'em on, Rawhide! Knock 'em out, Pound 'em dead, Make 'em tea, Buy 'em drinks, Meet their mommas, Milk 'em hard, RAWHIDE! YEE-HAW! " "TGIF, eh, buddy? Workin' hard or hardly workin', eh Mac?" "Thank you, gentlemen! Someday, I will repay you. Unless, of course, I can't find you or if I forget." "I hate Mondays." "The sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom..." "Bet my bottom??" "...I'm coming Elizabeth!" " Be... good." "It's gonna be champagne wishes and caviar dreams from now on!" "Oh, you got a puppy? All I got in my room was shampoo!" "All right, let's crash this party!" "Are we there yet? " "For five minutes, could you not be yourself? FOR FIVE MINUTES?! "Let's not sit here with our tummies rumbling. Everybody dig in." "Don't mind if I do, Lillian!" "Do you still know the Muffin Man?" "Sure, he's down on Drury Lane. Why?" "Because we're going to need flour. Lots and lots of flour." "I say we take the sword and neuter him right here. Give him the Bob Barker treatment!" " I'm sorry, Lillian. I just wish I could be the man you deserve." "I don't care whose fault this was, just get this place cleaned up! And could someone please bring me something deep fat fried and smothered in chocolate! " "Today, I repay my debt... EN GARDE!" "Hey! Isn't we supposed to be having a fiesta?" "Where is he Mum? I shall render his head from his shoulders! I will smite him where he stands! HE WILL RUE THE VERY DAY HE STOLE MY KINGDOM AWAY FROM ME!" "Oh, put it away, Junior! You're still going to be King. We just need to work out something smarter, that's all. " "Thumbelina, no! Hansel and Gretel, no! The Golden Bird, the Little Mermaid, Pretty Woman... no, no, no, no, NO!" "There's just one problem - that's not my husband. I mean, look at him!" "Yes, he is a bit different, but people do change for the ones they love - you'd be surprised how much I changed for your mother... " "*Change*? He's completely lost his mind!" "Oh, no! That's the old Keeblers place! Let's just walk away slowly. "
  12. chockfull, on the "Cheapness" thread, page 4. =========================================== "So you know Way ministry, you were right and you were wrong about Burn the Chaff. You were right about the concept. It is nice to travel light. In modern times this concept has gained ground under a different name. Minimalism. But you as usual were wrong about the execution of it. That's because you, Way ministry, are The Chaff."
  13. For those who want to reread "the Passing of the Patriarch", it's archived here: http://wayback.archive.org/web/20150119085659/http://www.greasespotcafe.com:80/main2/waydale/waydale-miscellaneous/passing-of-the-patriarch.html
  14. Of course, saying a group is a splinter group doesn't tell us how big the group is, just that it exists. I know of about 4-5 people (possibly less, now) of extreme ex-twi that I presume still meet in a living room weekly. If so, they count as a splinter group. I bet quite a few of the splinters all meet at once in a living room. So, yes 15 splinters is nothing. We could have 15 splinters meet in my apt bldg and each one meet on a different floor!
  15. YES.. Sounds like you might have seen the Shrek movies.
