Re: Silver
Now you have me thinking. Crazy, I know.
Anyway, you got me from old funny movies to even older funny movies to Flash Gordon, Buster Crabbe. Those old neuronic connections are still strong. Not like dinner a few hours ago.
There is one scene, I think I remember, where Flash and company get into a railcar in the underground lair of some bad guy and speed along a tunnel. Then the bomb chasing them hits and explodes. End of episode.
Open the next episode with the same scene of the explosion. Then, as the smoke clears, Flash and friends are seated in the demolished cab. They stand and walk out of the smoldering cab through its destroyed walls into a scene filled with debris but without a mark or smudge on them and without a hair out of place.
Wonderful. I’m going to go find some YouTube vids.

Re: Goldfinger
Goldfinger (1964) - Nuking Fort Knox
I like my answer better. Yours is more accurate, being actually right and all, but mine was more ...
pointed!


I think I'll leave now.

Re: Goldfinger
Thus (I hope) ends the topic diversion (but I doubt it).
Do I hear a problem with side issues, topic diversions, tangents from our man moose? Whence this passion to strike out at distracting sub-topics?
A man similarly obsessed once wrote, “Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering topic diversion; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee;”
Do you think it appropriate to denigrate the side thread by participating in its continuation? Is this a specific topic objection or is this more a general distaste of topic distraction? Other than a heavy voice, what other restrictions on topic creep are you prepared to implement?
If we get people to comment on this and build a substantial sub-topic side-thread are you going to hurt me?

Ack!
... filled it with our 190 proof apricot brandy ...
Hack! Ack!
Dude! That is 95% ethyl. The fumes alone will peel paint. After all that alcohol there's no room left for the apricot. Burn out your sinuses and your memory banks at the same time.
I've had Everclear 190. Use it as a mix-drink base. Just once I had to take a shot. One of the dumbest things I've ever done to my poor mouth, throat, lungs. The burn of the fumes alone nearly knocked me out.
Those were good times.

Re: Anti-semitism to boot
Your prejudice ...
Let’s start a fight.
What is wrong with describing his endocrinologist as a smart Jewish doctor? Yes, it is ethnic-based but not harmfully so. For all we know the endocrinologist and his proud Jewish mother refer to him the same way. The stereotype is a harmless ubiquitous meme in society. Seinfeld had lots of them. To object, in my opinion, is a social sensitivity gone too far and is harmful to society. To embrace the innocent humor of the meme in our society is healthy.
Loudspeaker in main cabin: Is there are doctor on board?
Jewish Mother: That could have been you.
Man: Ma, now’s not really the time.
JM: You could have been the one to answer.
M: Please, Ma, there’s an emergency going on.
JM: Did they call for a graphic designer? No.
M: Not now, Ma. Please!
JM: What would you do? Save him as a pdf to see if that helps?

Re: Anti-semitism to boot
You P.C. "woke" Liberals really need to back off your morality policing.
Who is killing girls with their moral policing of abortion? Who legislates that an ectopic pregnancy must be carried to term? Who uses their GOD Fucked morality to torture kids?
Republicans. Not liberals. Your religious right. Wake up to what woke really is.

Re: Conservatives, Liberals, and a Secular Future
They don't want government to do much at all.
Except keep girls from getting abortions and block minorities from voting, reverse gay marriage and other things along the lines of denying rights to other people. They like a lot of those.
Oh, and subsidize their $$multi-billion multi-national conglomerates. Conservative love a government that does lots of that.
