    Momentus.

    A) JAL never apologized to anyone about bringing in a harmful program, or shilling a harmful program- which he does to this day. Either he DOESN'T CARE it's a harmful program, or he's such a raving idiot he's NOT AWARE it's hurt a LOT of people, and its practices pretty much guarantee it. It's well-known this is a harmful program. The Momentus people know other people know that- which is why they keep HIDING THE NAME and CHANGING THE NAME. So, if JAL is that slack-witted that he's the only one who doesn't know this is harmful, he has NO business leading ANYBODY. If JAL DOES know it's harmful and DOESN'T CARE that it harms God's People, then he has NO business leading ANYBODY. The closest thing we got to a apology was his blanket insult that we would dare to criticize his decisions here. B) How beneficial can a program be if there's a "conspiracy of silence surrounding what it's really like" (and Momentus certainly has that)? There should be a chance to get a general idea of the outline for the program. (I'm not saying they have to show every instant, but people should be able to make an INFORMED DECISION as to what is suitable for them, not to just to have to "take my word for it and pay for this weekend program." How "safe" is a program where you have to sign a waiver that exempts them from being responsible if people get hurt? For those who don't know, this is common sense. Any program run to teach anything has certain responsibilities that are expected LEGALLY as well as MORALLY. They are called "fiduciary responsibilities." If you take an exercise program, those responsibilities include making sure the students begin in decent health, and their health isn't jeopardized by the program in any way- no unsafe food supplements, no exercises that MIGHT damage a few but be fine for many, and so on. In a program like Momentus CLAIMS TO BE, there should NOT be the radical breakdown attempts that are part and parcel OF the program- since those lead DIRECTLY to people suffering the breakdowns. Regardless of any papers signed, there's a fiduciary responsibility and the "trainers" are open to civil suits if not criminal ones.
  2. In the UK, Marvel's "Avengers" movie was marketed as "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" to avoid confusion with the UK's Avengers, which, IIRC, predated the Marvel Comic book by a few years. Marvel's "Avengers" has had many cartoons and several live-action movies by now, of course. *checks* The first season of the UK show aired in 1961, although it went through some changes before it became really popular (with John Steed and Emma Peel.) The Marvel Comic debuted with a cover date of 1963.
  3. That's it. I got the idea for this round when I tried to talk about Steed and Peel, and I almost had to draw a weapon to shut someone up long enough to make it clear I was talking about the British agents and not the Marvel movies when I was talking about TV. I forgot how common it is for people to listen until they hear something they recognize- then they stop listening and respond even if the response is totally inappropriate. (I had that happen once discussing "faery changelings"- as I said out loud- and someone immediately jumped to thinking I meant shapechangers like Constable Odo of ST:DS9 and not the idea that faeries would swap mortal children for faeries in their cradle. )
  4. *slaps forehead* The Waponis must be from "Joe Vs the Volcano."
  5. Ah, you left out part of the clueS. What about the other movie, or movies?
  6. This was a successful television show. It ran for several seasons, and was syndicated to different countries, including the US. It had a sequel show with new episodes some time later. It was never an animated series nor an animated movie, and should not be mistaken for one. It later resulted in a live-action movie- which should not be mistaken for any other movie, whether animated nor live-action. There's a perfectly sensible reason, however, why someone might confuse the show (or the movie) with a different movie or possibly movies.
  7. "Do you have any vacancies?" "Oh, we have 12 vacancies. 12 cabins, 12 vacancies." "It's sad, when a mother has to speak the words that condemn her own son. But I couldn't allow them to believe that I would commit murder. They'll put him away now, as I should have years ago. He was always bad, and in the end he intended to tell them I killed those girls and that man... as if I could do anything but just sit and stare, like one of his stuffed birds. They know I can't move a finger, and I won't. I'll just sit here and be quiet, just in case they do... suspect me. They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."
  8. I'd suspect you weren't as far off as you thought. But, you're waiting to hear bells in your head? Are you mad?
  9. Imagine you misinterpreted Raf's clue, then try again.
  10. George, if you can start describing 2 of the main characters, you'll probably figure out which movie this is.
  11. Some might call that "crazy." Others might find another way to describe it.
  12. You've heard of this movie. And probably the sequels. And almost certainly the remake.
  13. Ok, next one. This was a successful television show. It ran for several seasons, and was syndicated to different countries. It had a sequel show with new episodes some time later. It was never an animated series nor an animated movie, and should not be mistaken for one. It later resulted in a live-action movie- which should not be mistaken for any other movie, whether animated nor live-action.
  14. "Headaches are like resolutions. You forget them as soon as they stop hurting." "So far of those I've used, I haven't had much luck with any of them. Well, let's see what they say about this one. They tell you what it's ingredients are, and how it's guaranteed to exterminate every insect in the world, but they do not tell you whether or not it's painless. And I say, insect or man, death should always be painless." "Sam, this is the last time." "For what?" "For this. Meeting you in secret so we can be secretive. You come down here on business trips, the occasional lunch hour, and I wish you wouldn't even come." "All right, what do we do instead? Write each other lurid love letters? I can come down next week." "No." "Not even just to see you? Have lunch? In public." "Oh, we can see each other. We can even have dinner, but respectably — in my house with my mother's picture on the mantle, and my sister helping me broil a big steak for three." "And after the steak, do we send sister to the movies? Turn mama's picture to the wall?" "Sam!" "All right. Marion, whenever it's possible I want to see you and under any circumstances, even respectability." "You make respectability sound disrespectful." "Oh no, I'm all for it. But it requires patience, temperance, with a lot of sweating out. Otherwise though, it's just hard work. But if I could see you and touch you, you know, simply as this, I won't mind." "You've never had an empty moment in your entire life, have you?" "Only my share." "Where are you going? I didn't mean to pry." "I'm looking for a private island." "What are you running away from?" "Wh-why do you ask that?" "People never run away from anything." "The rain didn't last long, did it? [Pause] You know what I think? I think that we're all in our private traps, clamped in them, and none of us can ever get out. We scratch and we claw, but only at the air, only at each other, and for all of it, we never budge an inch." "Sometimes, we deliberately step into those traps." "I was born in mine. I don't mind it anymore." "Oh, but you should! You should mind it!" "Oh, I do, [laughs] but I say I don't." "You know, if anyone ever talked to me the way I heard — the way she spoke to you..." "No! I will not hide in the fruit cellar! Ah ha! You think I'm fruity, huh? I'm staying right here.This is my room and no one will drag me out of it, least of all my big bold son." "And the forty thousand dollars? Who got that?" "The swamp. These were crimes of passion, not profit."
