    I started this as a place for random thoughts with a humorous slant, it is not meant to be inflammatory, and anything anyone may want to post here should of course be within Forum rules.


    While recently watching The Jinx on HBO, here is a thought that came into my mind:


    There would be enough justice to go around if it wasn't for the law constantly getting in the way.

    "Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you--where would you hide, ...the laws all being flat? This country's planted thick with laws from coast to coast--man's laws, not God's--and if you cut them down--and you're just the man to do it--d'you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes. I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake."

    I respect the heck out of your long history of great posts here Stanley but I'm scratching my head here ATM. What are you hoping to accomplish or discuss here without immediately running afoul of our 'no politics or religion' rule?

    "The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup."

    Wouldn't the best part of waking up be the 'waking up'?

    Love how you re-characterized the first post, Stanley, thanks for allaying my concerns =)


    Random thoughts and pithy sayings can be fun, whether we author them or steal em from others, hoping others see it that way too.

    Sam, I thought Dr Griffin's original post (which at the time was called 'Say Anything') was an invitation for general commentary about anything in particular. Perhaps my first response led to your concerns above and subverted the intention of the thread? If so, my apologies and please don't be concerned - it was meant tongue-in-cheek (maybe I should use smiley face animations more). I was quoting from A Man For All Seasons, as it seemed a tailor-made response - and this being a home theatre forum and all!

    Excellent posts, and the info on one of my favorite films coming soon from Twilight Time was also timely. :)

    There's nothing I hate more than a success story.

    I envision a future where if you are not trending, you are eliminated.

    Drunk tweeting is a really bad idea. In fact, most tweeting is in my book...

    It's beginning to sink in more each day that no one hates Americans more than other Americans.

    In these troubled economic times, one misses the solemn wisdom of Irving R. Levine.
