  1. Now now, the Canadian government has apologized for BA on multiple occasions. I just can't place the song.
  2. What is the difference between atheism and nihilism? Good question. And it depends on how you define nihilism. Personally, I look at nihilism as a "glass half empty" subset of atheism. To nihilists, as I interpret the term, values are of no value. Nothing matters ultimately, therefore nothing matters now. I don't believe life must have an imaginary purpose in order to have a purpose at all. It is all we have. And it is worth preserving. That's a short answer. But no, atheism and nihilism are not the same thing, and believing there is no cosmic justice does not make one a nihilist.
  3. I thought it was a movie thread, so I thought it was Outrageous Fortune, which has superficial similarities
  4. You know who NEVER says quantum physics explains spirituality? Quantum physicists. It's like, I can't explain A, I don't understand B. Therefore B explains A. No, it doesn't.
  5. From Quora: What are some problems with atheism? My answer: In "atheism" there is no satisfaction of eternal cosmic justice. Hitler dies. Mother Theresa dies. My grandmother dies. No one gets before a judge who rewards them for good deeds done or punishes them for evil deeds done. If you got away with murder on earth, you got away with murder, period. If you saved 30 people from a burning bus or hundreds of people from certain death at a Nazi death camp, enjoy the satisfaction of the good deed done while you're on earth. It's all you're getting. Hitler gets the same fate as Martin Luther King Jr? Afraid so. This outcome is personally and morally dissatisfying. It also happens to be (I believe) the truth. An uncomfortable truth, but I'd prefer an uncomfortable truth to a comfortable lie. There is evidence we all die. There is no evidence of rewards or punishment afterward.
  6. Oh, sorry, I thought it was something else. Nope.
  7. Here's a non-spoiler spoiler: Superman dies. (George, SHHHHHHH)
  8. Based on clues... Gene Wilder was NOT in this movie. Alfred Hitchcock was being honored Mel Brooks. High Anxiety
  9. If you name three actors, they have to be in the same movie. on another note... didn't know Robin Wright was in Forrest Gump? SHE WAS JENNY!
  10. By extension, more movies, more actors, or turn it into mashup. I chose more movies this time. Robin Wright is correct
  11. That the actor who plays the Monitor is also playing the Anti-Monitor has been widely reported. First three parts were VERY good. I would have considered the Lucifer appearance a spoiler, since they actually DID try to keep that a secret (the actor even denied it on social media when someone reported that he was on set. But, WW, if it hasn't started yet, you are in for a real treat, flaws and all.
  12. Correct, correct and correct
  13. In the USA, the next two episodes of Crisis air on Jan.14. 8 p.m. is an episode of Arrow. 9 p.m. is an episode of Legends. Expect the main story to resolve on Arrow. Legends will be more of an epilogue, a NOW WTF kind of show
  14. I thought this was easy... Unbreakable Beowulf SHE WAS THE PRINCESS BRIDE
  15. The first season of this series was set during World War II. The second and third seasons were set in the 1970s. The main character didn't change. There was no need. Supporting characters were altered, however, to accommodate the time jump. The lead actor from the first season played his own son in the later seasons.The change in setting coincided with a change in networks airing the show. A fairly famous actress who guest starred on this series was offered her own spin-off, but she declined to pursue a movie career. Her movie success was terrific as far as acting careers go, good but not as great as far as famous, successful actors go. The lead actress of the TV show had the chance to meet the lead actor of a somewhat related movie franchise. Of him, she said he "was always amazing. He was amazing before he was amazing."
  16. Dagnabit, name the rest then
  17. Ok, if it's not I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here, then B is.... drumroll please...... The Surreal Life
  18. WW can tell us when to talk about the first three HOLY dagnabit episodes. The second airs this evening, 8 p.m., 12/9/2019 EST The third airs 12/10, same time. So as far as i am concerned, anything after 12/17 should PROBABLY be fair game. That said, "Holy Crimson Skies of Death!!!!"
  19. I'm a celebrity, get me out of here
  20. Too soon to discuss. Recording BL because probably should. COIE1 was really good, but too soon to judge. Like judging Endgame right after the rat sets Scott free.
  21. The Princess Bride Forrest Gump Wonder Woman
  22. Help! I'm a Has Been! I know. But that SHOULD have been the name of it
  23. Wink Wilkinson was the radio show host in Little Shop of Horrors.
