Doesn't sound familiar to me at all. Sorry

Super Bowl Ads
The pencil through the ceiling was good, but my favorite pick is that of the one where the little girl was being told about the facts of life about looking to marry her Prince Charming!

Especially since it was Sarah Ferguson doing the ad, a real princess who dumped HER "Prince Charming!" <G> But I just wonder how many diurnal cubicle dwellers were yelling "YEAH!" at the ad with the pencil. <G> CMPQwk 1.42 16554

I remember both of those guys, especially Lee from Politics. What did they do here to get the boot? CMPQwk 1.42 16554

Sounds like a fair trade to me.

You present your own evidence. Nobody has to worry about knowing it as long as they can read.

You looking to get others booted, too? Can't tell you.

"Christian" moviemakers
We've seen "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Omen," though. Wasn't one of the stars of "Chariots" gay, and later died of A.I.D.S? Amazing how we've been telling them that for years, but when they can turn it into a catchy jingle to promote their own films, then it's OK. "There is no Sanctuary!" [I was in the movie where they filmed some of Carousel the other day.] When does Charlton Heston get involved? Who plays Nero? "Like BibleMan." I saw a

There are plenty of people here who can tell you a thing or two about black holes, and when they don't know, they don't say "Gods dunnit."

We couldn't do anything horrible like look at the texts with an unbiased eye, now, could we? The point of the story is to illustrate "God is great, God is good, but Baal ain't." Well, they're referring to Baal, but obviously, you get my point. Some translations say "sitting on the toilet," which could very well be where ol' shiny backside is hiding.

JBS was one of those "God loves you" types who pretty much responded with that or a scriptural quote when questions were asked. Lee utilized a "truth filter" and he screened out "profanity." When told that that kind of a thing is a no-no, here in this heated conference, he got belligerent. Only guy to ever tell me "No" on a feed cut, although I presume his NC explained it to him in language he could understand. Frankly, rather than

Er, "building where they filmed."

Gun control ranting
It makes it harder for you to attempt to take away his rights if he shoots at you. I recall there's a mandate in the DOI, where Jefferson indicated that it's our duty to overthrow tyrants. "Amen" to that, too. Or a Sears Craftsman hammer or a Louisville slugger, yet, I don't see anybody asking for tougher laws and tougher background checks and all that jazz.

Oh, Mr. Logic-man:
MK<> I have always stated that it is more likely for there MK<> to be Something, since there are many forms of Something, and MK<> only one form of Nothing place 'em all in a hat and pick a MK<> state of existence at random, and you're more likely to get MK<> Something. Beautiful. There are many different Gods, and there's only one atheism... So it's more likely that there's some kind of God? Gosh, but I admire
