    Early days Steven Seagal was like a discount Tom Cruise.

    I had a dream that Goku was leading his entire Saiyan race down a charge into Hell to fight their genocidal murderers.

    So, in a nutshell only the extremely wealthy can honestly say, "Yes, I can afford it." ?

    That's a bit crap.

    No, Seagull has always been like a discount dog turd. That's if buying dog turds was a thing, of course.

    Tom Cruise is a little discount kind of chap though, and is our Tom Thumb :blowkiss:. I bet he would relish that role..[?]He's mainly spooky

    - I can't even remember Steven Seagal, cigar maybe? Action films. But you can't call him a dog shit, @Jud? Imagine if I said @the Farm were dog shit, or Inspiral Carpets? It hurts doesn't it? The Beautiful South are dog shit. Pain, huh? Just my opinion.

    @CT?

    Real dog shit is different. When I was among the wardens I was most familiar with dog shit, hardened to dog shit in a manner of speaking. After season one I was freestyling, fingernails scooped and hurled into dustbins. It was entertaining for tourists. They used to take photos/shake my hand. Vast skill set on the job.

    Yes, only the extremely wealthy can both afford a $500 camera and a $2000 rainy day fun for emergency expenses, like car repairs, rent, and medical bills.

    You did because you:

    That's marketing: create a familiar aesthetic that makes you feel important.

    As I understand it, a Long Island Iced Tea is just like 5 different kinds of liquor mixed together, no mixers of any kind added. Of course, it probably didn't help that you were also eating buffalo wings.

    It's got the 5 classic, white, well liquors--vodka, gin, tequila, rum, triple sec--plus sour mix and a splash of coke.

    Straight ghetto drink these days.

    And a Grateful Dead is a Long Island with Chambord added... haven't had anyone order one of those in probably 20 years.

    I will now be sure to track down your establishment and order one. That's how you'll know who I am. We're starting a spy ring called the Grateful Dead (since there's already a band called that).

    You'll find out who "we" are soon.

    Should we arrange for taxi service home ahead of time?

    Horse-and-buggy. Less conspicuous. Nobody suspects the Amish.

    My cat's bum has fur like Velcro; well, his whole body does, but, he always comes in with a lot of foliage on his hind legs.
    He's also got like a little mane/Afro, it's very cool.

    This was the first picture I ever saw of my cat, I saw this and was sold on him.
    The picture used in the ad'.

    I was looking for cats in the London area, saw this across town (in North London, I'm in South London). I had a short list (of cats of all fur colours and genders and ages), but when I saw this, that was it; I rang the owner, he was still available, and done deal. I went up and got him (based on this pic).

    ... My cat :)

    I've actually got 2 cats because as soon as I got him he got out and I couldn't catch him or find him and went looking for him for weeks and even got loaned a humane cat trap from a UK wide cat charity to capture him, I found another lost cat that looked like him, but the microchip was different and that cat was also registered as missing and the vet who scanned the chip retained him and got reunited (I phoned later that day to see what happened and they told me they managed to contact that cat's worried owner who just moved to the area and told me what that cat's name was and that that cat's owner was coming in to pick it up) and my friend got me a kitten that night.
    It was coincidence that she was another black cat, then a week later he was found safe and sound and correct microchip and all (in July 2019) and now I have them both;

    Happy families.
    :)

    The acting and dialogue in The Happening is very silly.

    ^^ They were actually hoping to make people frightened of the wind, the way Jaws made them afraid to go in the water and Hitchcock made them fear birds.

    ^Jaws did make me afraid of open water. I will not go swimming in anything other than a swimming pool.

    I didn't think The Happening was that bad. I wouldn't go out of my way to rewatch it, but I also don't regret having seen it.

    Or of the next Shyamalan movie anyway. Makes you wonder how he hit it so hard with The 6th Sense.
