    All the physics talk in the After Hours Lounge got me to thinking. Yeah, I know, SteveGon is thinking. Call the press! Anyway, the theory of multiple Earths has always intrigued me. If you could find your ideal Earth, what would it be like? Here's mine:
    Steve's ideal Earth
    Chicken Run would have won Best Picture
    Gladiator would not have won Best Picture
    Stanley Kubrick and Akira Kurosawa would still be alive and directing great movies.
    Jimi Hendrix would still be alive and making great albums.
    Carl Sagan would still be alive and personally explaining physics to my dumb ass.
    Sabretooth cats would still be around. Hey, they're cool!
    Michael Bay would have been eaten by a sabretooth cat.
    No boy bands.
    I'd be living in a huge mansion with my own private theater.
    My mansion would always have Guinness and Corona on tap.
    I'd have a harem made up of the following ladies:
    Emmanuelle Beart, Emma Thompson, Cate Blanchette, Kelly Lynch, Winona Ryder (gotta keep an eye on her, though!), Natasha Gregson Wagner, Jennifer Lopez, and Madchen Amick.
    The laws of probability would be skewed just enough so that my non-athletic ass could bowl a 200 game.
    Environmental degradation would be kept to a minimum.
    People with different political and religious agendas would stop trying to f**k each other over and live in harmony.

    My perfect world has already been adequately described by Mr. John Lennon in his song "Imagine."

    In BK's perfect world:

    Cheese would be free

    Women wanted men with small penises

    Our bowling team would come in first

    Laziness would be commendable and out of shape and overweight would be chic

    It would be impossible to lose one of a pair of socks

    No more prostate exams

    It would not be illegal to set fire to your workplace

    All "chick" movies would be required to have nudity as to make it worthwhile when my wife forces me to watch them

    SteveGon would quit making fun of my

    Steel Magnolias special edition DVD

    Let's see. First of all to quote the band Guttermouth in the song Perfect World.

    "When I turn on my T.V. nothing but pornography no more rated G in a perfect world."

    More Money

    A room full of dvds

    A job where my boss didnt hate me

    Peace

    A president that wasn't a total dumbass

    In my perfect world:
    -Dan Brecher, Mark McLeod, Matt Chmiel, Mark Pfieffer, Scott Weinberg, Brook Kennon, Vince Maskeeper, John Steffens, Mitty, Edwin, and many other fellow HTFers would all be my neighbors.
    -I'd be working with all of these guys in a movie studio dedicated to making first rate motion pictures with interesting stories and actors, plus a kickass DVD company devoted to the hardcore fans.
    -I'd be within walking distance of a membership-oriented, first class art house theater getting NY/LA and foreign product quickly and efficently, staffed with union projectionists
    -I'd have an In and Out and a chinese restaurant in my backyard.
    -My girlfriend would love film as much as I do, and WANT to watch the latest Fellini Criterion disc even before I do. [​IMG]

    -First off, my dad would still be alive.

    -Secondly, I would have a loving girlfriend...who looked like a total late-80s rock video slut.

    -Thirdly, I'd have a successful screenwriting career and several Oscars to my name.

    -Fourthly, I'd have the best DVDs, and access to the finest in sodas, potato chips, pizza and sweets...and I would never gain a pound.

    -Fifth and finally, I would know more than I know now.

    Sincerely,

    John "Ain't no living in a perfect world, there ain't no perfect world anymore" Kilduff

    In my perfect world...
    Cars would fly, eliminating traffic congestion (pigs will fly first, but that's another thread) [​IMG]
    No one would be poor, homeless, underpaid, or treated like dirt (except maybe boy band wannabees...) [​IMG]
    The record companies would only produce quality music, and CDs would be $5 a piece
    Lawyers would be either (a) abolished, or (b) reasonably priced
    People would work for the enjoyment of it rather than having to work for a living
    Companies would screen applicants so that incompetent idiots don't get into management positions
    Dress codes in offices would be illegal
    Telemarketing and spamming would be illegal, and anyone caught in violation would be flogged in public
    Caller ID wouldn't have that annoying "blocking" feature that too many people use
    Parking would be free and readily available
    And many many more, the complete list would fill HTF's hard drives! [​IMG]
