    What show was this?

    That wasn't it, but a look at the IMDB page gives you the name of the British Comedy it was based on. It looks like "Mind Your Language" is the one I remember. I wonder if it was a funny as I remember or just funny b/c I was 10. It looks like it is only out on DVD in R2 right now.

    What show was this?

    I remember watching this show as a kid, anyone have any idea what it was called? I watched it on public television mid 80's, I'm thinking between 83 and 86. I don't know how many episodes it was, but I'm thinking not many. It was British (I think) and 1/2 hour long. The setting was a...

    Military Question: Brigade vs Regiment

    Okay here is how I understand most of the US Military's unit tree. Assume we're talking about an infantry units, no vehicles. 8 to 12 men = Squad 4 Squads = Platoon 4 to 5 Platoons = Company 3 to 5 Companies = Battalion 3 Battalions = Brigade 2 or 3 Brigades = Division So where do...

    I was reading a book about a hypothetical nuclear excange between the US & USSR and it got me thinking about. Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). I know what it is & basically how it works. But... 1. Can it be created other than with a nuclear weapon, like in Ocean's Eleven (2001)? 2. I know it...

    What is thisTV commerical / music?

    Any help as to whose commercial this is or what the music is will be greatly appreciated. There's a new car commerical out and I never pay attention to car commercials unless I'm in the market to buy a new one. The basic premise is that this vehicle (could be a SUV, not really sure) fits this...

    We're going to Graceland this weekend!

    Glad you had a good time. Mud Island can be fun, but locals rarely go. I've been in Memphis for almost 10 years and only been once. The funniest thing about "The Firm" is that when Tom Cruise goes to Mud Island it's packed! However, Downtown Memphis is so much nicer and there is so much...

    Cat doors for sliding glass doors in an apt?

    Well my finance & I made one for her place a few years ago. We basically just took a board about 8 inches wide and tall & thick enough to fit in the doorframe. Make sure you cut out a notch for the door lock mechanism and we mounted it by using a hook & eye latch on both sides of the door. Then...

    Championship Manager for the PC

    I love this game. Champ Man has taken many hours of my life. I started with 99/00 and have since moved up to 01/02. I have a few teams I like to use, mainly Leyton Orient. For a slightly easier time I play, Man City, Millwall, or Aberdeen. I've done quite well in my current game, which is...

    Alan Keyes' talkshow on MSNBC

    I haven't watched the show, and don't really have any opinions on the content of the show or similar shows on other networks. The only thing that I find interesting is the title. "Alan Keyes is Making Sense", it seems to imply (at least to me) that the network automatically agrees with...

    Which FF for PS1?

    Okay, I've got a PS1 and I want to buy one of the Final Fantasy games. Upgrading to the PS2 for FFX is not an option. I've never played any of the series, except for a demo of FFVII ages ago, which I enjoyed. Right now I'm learning towards picking up FFVII just to start at the beginning...

    College Football Question

    I don't really think that the conference issue has much to do with it. True, it isn't wise for a 1AA team in Missouri (or anywhere for that matter) to move up _now_ unless they have a conference to play in. But, in the past conference affiliation wasn't as important as it is now. Now being...

    College Football Question

    My first post on Home Theater Forum, and it's about college football, go figure. Okay, here is what I don't understand. Why is there only one Division 1 football team in the state of Missouri? I did some research on nearby states with similar population figures and here is what I came up...
